Thoughts on Winter Troll
Winter Troll in a nutshell
The Winter Troll is a spray-warbeast with a very low RAT so it has to boost to hit anything smaller than a Colossal or Titan. And this also takes away many of the crits that would otherwise nicely freeze people.
Combos & Synergies
- Captain Gunnbjorn and the Hunters Grim both give it a chance of hitting without boosting for each hit.
- Stationary on multi-wound enemies, especially Leader models, that cannot shake the effect, can be effective.
Drawbacks & Downsides
- It usually must boost to hit with its spray and usually wants the crit effect. It thus drinks focus.
- Lowest RAT of Trollblood warbeasts with a ranged attack.
Tricks & Tips
- Stationary is a great effect - so you want to boost if aiming at a heavy.
Comparison to Mk2
- Same old - it wasn't used there either.
