Trollblood Light Warbeast

Unlike the many varieties of trolls that prefer to blend into their environments, a storm troll primed with galvanic energy and ready to attack is a blazing beacon of power, intimidating well beyond its size. Deadly lightning erupts from the array of natural conductors that runs the length of its spine, playing along its sides before bolting from its mouth at anything that arouses the troll’s ire.

Thoughts on Storm Troll[edit]

Storm Troll in a nutshell[edit]

The electrocutioner of the trolls flash-fries infantry. Hits the first with a boosted attack roll, and then its lightning bounces to others.

Combos & Synergies[edit]

  • Few

Drawbacks & Downsides[edit]

  • When not frying infantry it is thoroughly mediocre
  • You can't boost the extra lightning
  • There are other ways of killing infantry that don't rely on devoting a warbeast to the task.

Tricks & Tips[edit]

  • To hit those high-DEF solos shoot your own people in the back.

Comparison to Mk2[edit]

The Storm Troll is almost unchanged - but there is a lot less infantry to electrocute.
