Minion Gatorman Unit

Among the most formidable warriors of all the savage races, gatormen augment their natural battle prowess with brutal strength and oversized weapons. The barest scent of blood drives them into a killing frenzy, and a single gatorman can slay several men in a few gore-splattered seconds. Gatormen have no qualms about fighting for any master as long as they are provided with steel weapons and ample food.

Analysis of Gatorman Posse[edit]

Gatorman Posse in a nutshell[edit]

Solid heavy infantry although a bit overpriced for what they do - and with everyone teching to defeat jacks heavy infantry is less of a threat.

Combos and Synergies[edit]

  • The Gatorman Posse get a lot of bonuses in The Blindwater Congregation - extra wounds, Snacking (which shuts down a lot of recursion), and they come with free models. Although rarely seen outside the theme force they are the backbone of the minion heavy infantry list in Blindwater.
  • The other place where they shine is (again) another theme force. The Skorne Disciples of Agony gives them access to +2 str and no kd, add in an agonizer and you have a fairly durable brick.

Drawbacks and Downsides[edit]

  • They aren't actually that tough; a charging POW 12 can force a tough roll 50% of the time and they get hurt badly by any sort of solid shooting.
  • For such an expensive unit they lack Pathfinder

Tricks and Tips[edit]

Changes from Mk II[edit]

Heavily nerfed. Lost three damage boxes (in exchange for Tough) and a point of MAT. They used to have Bloodthirst normally - and the prayer would give them Pathfinder. Dirge of mists used to provide a smaller general def bonus which stacked with concealment and came with terror. All of which shows how strong they were in Mk2.

  • The Dec 2016/Jan 2017 errata lowered their cost.
