Stupid Cryx List: Cryx Trolls!


35-point Cryx Trolls List (35 models)
  • Venethrax +6
  • Repear – 7
  • Bloodgorgers (max) – 8
  • Bloodgorgers (max) – 8
  • General Gerlak Slaughterborn – 3
  • Bane Lord Tartarus – 4 [*]
  • Boomhowlers (max) – 9
  • Bosun Grogspar – 2
 
I like Venethrax for my Cryx Trolls List. Seems fitting. And he benefits from all those medium bases (33 of them) blocking LOS.
 
Now, if I open up the list to allow Ogruns–because they’re on medium bases and somewhat similar to trolls–I can field a list of 45 medium-base models.
 
50-point Cryx Trolls (and Ogruns) List (46 models)
  • Venethrax +6
  • Reaper – 7
  • Bloodgorgers (max) – 8
  • Bloodgorgers (max) – 8
  • General Gerlak Slaughterborn – 3
  • Black Ogrun Boarding Party (max) – 6
  • Black Ogrun Boarding Party (max) – 6
  • Bane Lord Tartarus – 4 [*]
  • Boomhowlers (max) – 9
  • Bosun Grogspar – 2
  • Ogrun Bokur (client: Venethrax) – 3
 
The Bokur could be replaced by Gudrun the Wanderer (3-point Minion solo), but that probably makes the list even *less* useful. ;-)
 
Which I guess points out that I *could* have a Cryx Ogruns list.
 
25-point Cryx Ogrun List (14+? models)
  • Venethrax +6
  • Reaper – 7
  • Black Ogrun Boarding Party (max) – 6
  • Black Ogrun Boarding Party (max) – 6
  • Ogrun Bokur (client: Venethrax) – 3
  • Gudrun the Wanderer – 3
  • … (3 points unspent)
 
Almost.
 
Once I finish my second set of Black Ogrun Boarding Party and Bosun Grogspar, I could field any of these. And I probably will.
 
I doubt any of these lists are especially (or at all) competitive, though. For example, none of the lists has any terrain handling and will struggle versus high ARM. But that’s not the point. I just have fun coming up with stupid lists. :-)
 
[*] I think I read somewhere that Bane Lord Tartarus is a troll. He kinda looks like a troll.

    I’ve seen a reference or two to a similar list called the “Dark Kriel”. But that name sounds too serious to me. Nowhere near silly enough. =)

    Edited to add:

    I see there is a new trollkin mercenary/minion solo coming that works for Cryx: Raluk Moorclaw. Rockin’.
