Re: The Book of Gorillinators

If the card writers want to make a defensive special power that's impervious to defense-bypassing, they can and will. For instance, Isamu's card says, "If Isamu is attacked and at least one skull is rolled, roll the 20-sided die to vanish." If MBS stares at Isamu and takes away his die, then attacks him and gets a skull, Isamu will make a Vanish roll. If he fails, he then rolls 0 defense. What about Sgt. Drake? MBS can Stare away his defense dice from 6 spaces out, but that doesn't deactivate Thorian Speed.

Likewise, the Gorillinators could have said "If a Gorillinator is attacked with a normal attack, always add one automatic shield to whatever is rolled." If MBS forces you to roll 0? Fine, so add 1 to 0. They could have used wording that established Tough as independent of rolling physical defense dice, just like Disappearing Ninja or Glacier Camouflage, but they chose not to.

Just wanted to point out that as a Tricky unit that follows Vydar, the Gorillinators benefit from Agent Skahen's Cover Fire.

Sorry. dnutt99 is no longer updating his BOOKS. I'll update them when PMed with the requested update. Usually, if you have an update to suggest, PM the author.

Re: The Book of Gorillinators

G'nators are one of my favorite squads. I just need some Nakita Agents now

Re: The Book of Gorillinators

I just used these over the weekend. They make an amazing screen for the Nakitas. With their amazing 7 move and Tough (when it works). I didn't even attack with them one single time over two games. Just used them as meat shields...I even made it to the edge of my opponent's start zone to tie up some his units there.

When played right, no one should ever get close enough to your Nakitas to hit them. That's what happened in my first game. In my second game, though, I underestimated Mimring's fireline...ouch ( I did manage to engagement strike 2 Lizards in a row, though, so that was kinda cool). That's the one problem. G-nators and Nakitas are useless against special attacks. SA's bypass the Nakitas Smoke Powder and the G-nators Tough, both of the things that really make these units special (aside from the movement bonding). Otherwise, they run the board like Blasts/Glads...

Re: The Book of Gorillinators

Yes, the G'nators would definitely benefit from a revision. Either alter Tough to be like Warforged Resolve or make them 10-20 points cheaper.

See Competitive Unit Congress thread for an alternate (unofficial) version of the G'Nators and other cards.

Re: The Book of Gorillinators

So played these armies:
G-nators x3
Nakitas
Laglor

versus

Knights x3
Gilbert
Nilfheim

It was a fun match. Laglor got a couple lucky rounds off on Nilfheim and neutralized him after he had killed all the nakitas. My opponent then had to spend the rest of the time trying to kill monkeys with generally only three attack. Tough activated a lot. But alas the G-nators could not do much against the knights own heavy armor and they ended up losing leaving Gilbert (one wound taken) and five knights left.

Re: The Book of Gorillinators

So Nilf got over the Monkey screen and was able to wipe out your Nakitas? Rough. Yeah, nothing they can do against his Ice Shard SA...

Re: The Book of Gorillinators

That knight army is very strong. I faced that more than a few times at Gen Con with mixed results. They are tough to defeat with many armies.

The empty sky holds no reflection, for sorrow
