Steampunk Saturday - Trollblood Fennblades
Posted by geneguard
Today's article will be short and sweet, because I'm super tired from an all-day terrain session in preparation for Foodhammer. (It's next week! If you play 40k or WFB, you should go!) But in my limited spare time during the super busy fall semester, I've managed to paint one of the most iconic Trollblood units- the Fennblades.
Their unit attachment (the drummer and officer in the center), make them even more bashy. The drummer gives extra command range to the unit leader, meaning they can spread out even more. Useful with a unit of 12 medium based dudes! The officer himself though is just plan badass. He gives the unit Set Defense, making charge attacks against them take a significant penalty to hit. In addition, he has a mini-feat (once per game special action) that gives his unit Fearless, Terror, Pathfinder, and +2" of movement if they charge. So good!
Altogether, these guys are a super fast unit that can tie up and mince all sorts of infantry, though they're best kept away from stuff with high armor. Add in some speed or defense buffs from casters like Jarl or Borka, and they become even more amazing.
I got to break these guys in last night. Since the game will be in a video batrep soon, I'll save the details but unfortunately they lived up to my tradition of having newly painted models not perform.
That's it for now. Thanks for checking my stuff out, and hope to see many of you at Foodhammer next week!
