Re: The Book of Death Chasers of Thesk

They are Orcs (same as singular Orc for powers) but not Orc Warriors that GRIMNAK, TORNAK, and ORNAK reference. However, they still get Nerak's bonus (and bond with him).

Re: The Book of Death Chasers of Thesk

It is a matter of doing what the card says. The Orc vs Orcs doesn't have a bearing here. It is what is listed in their bonding power that determines who they can bond with. These guys bond with Large Wild Heroes; the species does not matter for their bonding, but the size and personality do.

Grimnak is Huge and Ferocious, so they can't bond with him.
Tornak is Large but he is also Tricky, so they can't bond with him either.

The bonding that is listed on the Blade and Heavy grut cards is Orc Champion Bonding, which is a referring to the species and class of figure.

So of the orc bonding squads, Grimnak and Tornak only bond with Heavy Gruts and Blade Gruts.

EDIT - Ninj'd; I see now it was more a question of whether or not these guys got the synergy from Grimnak and Tornak; lefton4ya got that part covered.

A must read for all 'Scapers!

Re: The Book of Death Chasers of Thesk

99% of the time use Raelin Rotv. The only time Sotm version is sometimes better is with fast (move 6/7) figures, and usually it is better to just not have Raelin when you want a fast moving army.

Re: The Book of Death Chasers of Thesk

Excellent point, first-time poster. My mod powers do not give me power here, but I'm sure someone will take care of it if @BurnyFlame does not.

Thanks, and welcome to the board!

Re: The Book of Death Chasers of Thesk

Gotta say I love these guys! Especially with them bonding with Pel. They have proven to be really strong in 500pt and 600pt builds. I've placed 2nd with them in the last 2 tournaments. My builds were:

DC's X6, Pel, Nerak, Marcu (500pts)
DC's X7, Pel, Nerak, Me-Burq-Sa, Marcu (600pts)

Another strong option for the 500pt build would be to switch out 1 squad of DC's for MBS so that you've got DC's X5, Pel, MBS, Nerak, Marcu and that's pretty solid. Pel really adds a cheaper heavy hitting option for the DC's even with his negative abilities.

Re: The Book of Death Chasers of Thesk

Can you imagine a situation where you would actually not take advantage of Orc Battle Rush? The DCoT are one of my favorite squads to use and there have been some rare occasions where I considered not using it. For example, if your opponent has Major Q10 in their army and you know you are just sending them out for the slaughter (even with Nerak they’re still probably going down), would you consider holding them back until someone else in your army had dealt with the Major? Or do people think you should always plow ahead with the Orc Battle Rush?

Re: The Book of Death Chasers of Thesk

I think I'd plow ahead every single time. There's usually not much else in my armies besides Orcs + Bonding options, so they're probably getting all the Order Markers anyway, might as well have the board control to go with it. Plus, I tend to rush any melee against range, because if they get set up you're toast, so you want to try to hit them before they're ready, and Battle Rush really helps that. In addition, I usually bring Raelin with them, so if they Rush I can set Raelin up on Order Marker 1 and bring defense with them as they finish closing the gap.
