Glacier King

Trollblood Gargantuan Warbeast

Unearthed by Hoarluk Doomshaper, the glacier kings walk the world again as embodiments of winter and the frozen north. Localized storms laden with ice and snow swirl about their towering forms. Streams and lakes ice over at their passing, and the moisture in the air crackles as it freezes. Enemies who lose their footing nearby are promptly crushed to death or frozen solid before being lofted into a mouth of jagged, yellowed teeth.

Special Abilities[edit]

  • Gargantuan - Gargantuans are giant warbeasts, even bigger and stompier than normal. They all share a stack of standard special rules.
  • Immunity: Cold - This model does not suffer cold damage.
  • Pathfinder - This model treats rough terrain as open terrain while advancing. While charging, slam power attacking, or trample power attacking, this model does not stop its movement when it contacts an obstacle.
  • Bulldoze - When this model is B2B with an enemy model during its Normal Movement, it can push that model up to 2" directly away from it. A model can be pushed by Bulldoze only once per activation. Bulldoze has no effect when this model makes a trample power attack.
  • Snacking - If this model boxes a living model with an attack it may optionally remove it from play and heal a low, variable number of damage points.
  • Snowfall - Friendly faction models gain concealment when nearby.

Thoughts on Glacier King[edit]

Glacier King in a nutshell[edit]

Like most Colossals the Glacier King is a centrepiece of the army. In the Mountain King's case the Mountain King should be leading from the front with a smash and a roar - the Glacier King is for a much longer ranged army, keeping its troops safe from direct return fire by giving them concealment.

Combos & Synergies[edit]

Drawbacks & Downsides[edit]

  • No damage buff
  • Low threshold meaning frequent frenzies.
