Idea is to make troll country list. I hate chaos trolls models so Im making my trolls from Ogre Kingdoms Yahtee models. Throgg might be made from doom bull or from some greater daemon body. Knights are all normal chaos knights but I was thinking of replacing their heads with daemonette heads and possibly their weapon arms with big claws from daemonette boxed set.

The list

"The Trolling horde"

Throgg
175 pts

3 trolls
135 pts

3 trolls

4 trolls
180 pts

Disregarding the list for a moment.... this comment made my head spin a little.

The OK Yetis are pretty much as bad or worse than the existing Troll models.... I guess if you like them that's your call, but it just seemed strange to me that you would use them.

Personally, I'd be going non-GW for some Crocodile Wendigo models. I honestly was going to go for an entire OK army of them, but don't have the $ currently.

Haven't seen enough side-by-side pictures yet to judge how these guys are for scale, but if they fit right on Troll bases, these guys would be money compared to the crap GW Yetis.

I've got one word for you:
Pandaemonium

It'll ruin your whole day.

then, there's a follow up word- hellcannon "any unit that is touched by the template takes a Panic test at -1" OUCH!

Since Magic Phase comes first, playing a WoC Tzeentch list.... you'll see Pandaemonium followed by a salvo of Hellcannon shots- meaning your trolls get to take Panic tests on a 3....

not to mention that the default Tzentch spell (CC of 3) is a flaming attack at Sd6+1... might want to think about some more magical protection

yeah... 2 Dispell scrolls will help.

But I like the list a lot. with a giant and 2 knight units... those shots won't be thinking trolls too much.

units of trolls are too small (you'll end up with 1-2 by the time you've hit combat and what good will be buff be then).

warmachine hunters would be good.
