I'm makeing a 10k list, a Hexoatl list, so I'll use Maz in it (The WD rules), if he's the gen, TG is 2+, and mustn't autojoin slann, but they (Exept the 2 compulsary TG units in the army) may join slanns and get the stubborn rule.

Now, the question.

I was thinking of also join Kroak into the army, so what's best
1) 1126 pts worth of TG as Kroaks personal guard (If so, give an exeple of the perfect unit/ -s))?
B) 19 kroxigors (one of them's an anicent) to join Kroak?


I think it's option B, Unit strenght IIRC 62, cause fear, 16 ws3 st7 attacks for the front rank of 5 kroxigors and skinks in front of them!

The only problems are that they strike last, and I haven't seen what effects stupidity will give in 7.ed. (If Kroak is in a stupid unit, can he cast spells?)

kroxigor body guards are way cooler so go with them :)
and if you charge (M6) you still strike first, and kroxigors aren't stupid ;)

That's just nasty... the problem is that you're not stubborn so if by some weird chance you ever lose combat you could run and Kroak's rules say that if he's dead you can't win :cries:

I'm sure theres a banner that lets you reroll LD tests isnt there? if there is then you could stick a saurus champ in there with them.
A 10k battle aye, all i can say is OMFG! how many characters slots is that?

I do wonder though, HOW many points would that unit cost?

Will eat that unit allive once he gets into contact with it

So, you better have plenty of backup

Does anyone know any good spells (Exept CoC n' RoC) for Kroak to use while in a kroxigor guard unit?

(I ALWAYS use CoC n' RoC with Kroak in 2k, maybe that's why most opponents I fight are tailored Dispell powergaming lists, but eeh, I win anyway, or at least get a draw).

Turn him into a Magic Missil battery and say Screw Comet of Cassandora

Throw 6 magic missiles and one drain magic at the enemy, THEN hit him with the Ruination

EDIT: Remember, Kroak has to ROLL for his spells!

And to do that he'll have to get through the doubtlessly huge number of Skinks protecting the flanks and rear. Use the table edge to permanently protect one flank, then two units of Skinks to the front and remaining side, and the Dragon will never be able to get into contact, unless a Hellcannon or something shoots them all ;)

I was thinking of having a 3 pack unit of salamanders on each flank and some skinks and an extra slann and some temple guard around Kroak and his guard. Is that good or bad?

Problem here being he's a large target, so, lest you surround Kroak very close-by, you will have problems, since Frenzy will allow him to charge Kroak over the interposing units without even having to guess a charge, and a Dragon can very well handle the Skinks with its double Breath Weapon if he'd end up that close
