Just wondering what peoples favourite or what they consider the best monstrous infantry, i personally love trolls, str 5, regen and vomit attack all for pretty cheap in my opinion

Oh that's easy! Treek...... Never mind..

I adore Trolls. I have all variations of trolls available for O&G and Throgg, even though I can't use him (which bugs me as O&G should have the Troll King available to them as well; that stupid hag doesn't cut it!).

That being said, I also love my maneaters. I have had all six model in pewter since they were released, including the at that time still limited edition female with false beard and ninja. The new Golgfag model is one of my all time fav models, and I've also included the vintage Skaff model for fluff purposes. :D

Trolls. River trolls for the look of them.

I have also seen some heavily converted chaos ogres that look amazing.

I like the principle of Kroxigors and wish I could put my trolls in goblins in the same way.

Crypt Horros. Cheap, high thoughness, decent regeneration and can easily be ressurected.

Varghiest fast frenzed blenders sure not much defence (read none) but then there wont be many survivors after they charge anyway.
Yettees i just love the chance to use my snowmen.

I love my crypt horrors. For 38 points each you have one of the most resilient monstruous infantry of the game, which never flees and which can even be improved with magic.

Rat ogres! I love them. Their rules suck horribly but the idea of themm.... awesome.

"best" tactically is probably trolls of some kind, chaos or otherwise.

Fimir. Their rules are terrible, and are way overpriced, but their background is horrific.

Vargheists for me :) Flying monstrous infantry is fun.

vargheists are really awesome, i lost a game because of them (and mind you this is a 3k game so they represent something like 1/15 of the points)

The River trolls are pretty spiffy models, but I really like the new Morghasts too

Treekin. Partially out of personal bias (Wood Elves are my favourite faction), but also because I really really like the models (yes, you read that right. I LIKE the current ones). I went back to using the previous Wood Elf book, so the stat changes in the new one don't really affect me anymore.

I'm quite partial to Minotaurs, Kroxigors and Trolls of all kinds (well, maybe not the internet ones :p ) too.

My favorite would be Ironguts. I love filling my core with them. They are probably not the best monstrous infantry but they get the job done. I always use them over bulls. I like wounding most things on 2's.

I dig me my Ushabti. They were the first models that drew me into the hobby, and while they are useless now, I am always hoping that my god-statues will have their day in the (Nehekharan) sun.

Ushabti for the models, although their rules are lacking.

24-10-2014, 12:39
Ushabti are the best looking models in the TK line for me. So that

Vargheists certainly

A High Risk/High Yield unit

Though if decent models were released for them I might be tempted to start Skaven just so I can prove how awesome Rat Ogres are
