With such an expensive cost per figure, these monkeys would really hate Braxas, I would think.

Haha, just checking that was as devious as I thought.

Re: The Book of Gorillitroopers

Once I get some Gorillitroopers I'm thinking of trying this 500 point army.

Gorillitroopers x2 210
Zaeus 340
Nhah Scirh Cultists x2 500

I know there's only 2 squads of troopers, but with their Tough power they should do well against squads. And if some special attackers are sent out to by-pass Tough, then the Cultists come in to kill the special attacker. Also, the Cultists could triple as glyph grabbers or a screen for the gorillas. It seems like a well rounded army, I'm looking forward to getting the chance to play it sometime

As I mentioned in my recent NHSD and VC thread, I played with 3 squads + Kursus as an army core and was very pleased with the results. I would also consider 2 squads + Laglor. At 4 squads, it starts to become difficult to afford a bonding hero at all--don't forget you're going to need to round out the army with a decent screen. In my case I used Beakface Sneaks, but rats are always good, of course, and I've also considered PKs (although you wouldn't be able to afford very many of them). I think you could possibly do interesting things with only 2 squads, but 3 seemed to be the winner for me.

And, yes, Braxas and Grimnak and essentially anything with an autokill is going to be your Achilles heel. Hell, I had issues with bloodburst thralls in one game.

I don't think Zaeus brings a lot to the table with the 'troopers. Kursus is cheap, has decent mobility, and every once in a while you get that hail Mary pass/kamikaze attack to pay off. Laglor has the downside of being expensive, but the range boost can make it worthwhile. But Zaeus is even more expensive than Laglor, gives you one power that's essentially worthless in this army, and another power that's a mediocre SA ... it's not terrible by any stretch, but it can hurt you as often as it can help you, and it's his only way of getting a ranged attack. Laglor has a normal ranged attack, a ranged SA that's decent and never harmful, and he boosts the 'troopers autocannons. Plus his survivability is probably a bit better. Plus he's 20 pts cheaper. Go out and splurge on Marcu.

If I had a Laglor figure and a Marcu figure I might agree with you...
I do like Zaeus though. I know his special attack could hurt me, but it could also do a lot of damage to the other side. I will say I misread Zaues' card, think that the movmeent bonding would work with the gorillitroopers. That makes the army a little worse, but I still want to play it some time.

Ah. Yeah, that does put a damper on that particular strategy. But perhaps you could use proxies ... or, if you're playing online games, you can play with pretty much anything, AFAIK. Laglor can be a lot of fun in the right army ... I think he's the best of the flagbearers, although I know some favor Gilbert.

Yeah, I really wanted Zaeus to work with the Gorillitroopers, but I think in the end it would have made them too powerful (and would have required some fancy footwork in the wording department anyway). Zaeus is still a great figure, don't get me wrong--I just don't think he adds much to the Gorillitroopers. Other than theme, of course.

Re: The Book of Gorillitroopers

Hey all,

I'm having difficulty locating the alternate cards. The only PDF I can find features the "Yetis" figures.

Are there any alt layout available? Thanks for any help. I apologize in advance if I've overlooked the files.

Cheers!

Searching "gorillitroopers" in the downloads section brings up five results; I imagine one of those is what you're looking for.

That's probably exactly what you searched for. That search gives no results; you have to spell it right for them to come up.

The other four should probably be linked in the spoiler in the OP, @Heroscaper Guy .
