Mountain King

Trollblood Gargantuan Warbeast

To look upon a mountain king is to see the primal essence of the troll: hunger, rage, and the strength of nature. Set loose upon the world, these great trolls shake the ground with their tread and sunder granite with their roars. Mountain kings, who seek to satisfy an appetite incomprehensible to lesser creatures, now walk Caen again after millennia of imprisonment below the earth. Their awakening can mean only desperation—or madness—on the part of the trollkin.

Thoughts on Mountain King[edit]

Mountain King in a nutshell[edit]

The Mountain King is a colossal that provides the centrepiece of any Trollblood army it's in. The spray and the kill shot to wreck stuff, an animus to help it and other beasts wreck stuff, and then pounding the enemies to a pulp. It smashes.

Combos & Synergies[edit]

  • Krielstone - any tough model wants help from one.
  • A skirmish screen - the Mountain King does not like receiving charges.
  • Trollkin Warders - the Mountain King is a big target.

Drawbacks & Downsides[edit]

  • The Mountain King is a big and debuffable target.
  • It really needs all its fury cleared off it

Tricks & Tips[edit]

  • Rage is probably worth casting on it with your warlock.
