- Ice Breath - 8" spray, POW 12 gun
- Claw (x2) - 0.5" reach, P+S 12 melee weapons
- Warbeast - All warbeasts share a huge stack of special rules. The short version is they're big, furious, and beat stuff up pretty good.
- Immunity: Cold - This model does not suffer cold damage.
- Regeneration [d3] - This model may be forced to heal d3 damage boxes, once per activation. It can't run in the same activation.
- Winter Coat - Cheap animus which gives the caster Immunity: Cold and Freezer. (Freezer - An enemy model that ends its activation near this model becomes stationary unless it has Cold Immunity.)

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.
