I have quite a few squads of these and absolutely love their sculpts. Competitvely they just dont hold their weight for me though. I dont believe Ive ever done well with them. For their price they die pretty easily. I do want to love them though, I mean look at them, they are beautiful sculpts.

Re: The Book of Gorillinators

Well, they aren’t really tournament units. Any ranged special attack will clean them out in a turn. The only time I’d ever use them is if:

1. My opponent doesn’t have any ranged special attacks
2. My opponent drafted a core of omnicrons or microcorps.

But should the draft go that way, they make for an excellent counter-draft. Bringing them to a tournament though, is a questionable decision. I wouldn’t trust them against most competitive-level armies.

I use a 1 of squad just for clean up units really and grab spaces. For instance if on whatever map we are on the opponent chooses one way to go (maps typically have 2 or more ways "to go") and my units also go that way, but I'll send the gorillas the other way to flank or kill the enemy Marcu on the glyph on the opposite side of the map. For clean up they also do fairly well but they do need height to be effective, but the move helps with that. Other than those two things I don't really do much with them and I cannot see using anymore than 1 squad.

How I see it if I'm bringing the Nakitias I can bring a max of 1 squad of these guys otherwise it's a waste as their bonding is sub par as they themselves don't bond with anything and their only bonding is movement from the Nakitas. It's really just using the Nikatas to their full potential and Vydar has limited bonding besides tron.

Keep doing what you're doing, but do it better. ~Self

I believe they do have an attack option bonding with C3V's Zaeus. Even with their bonding options with him or Nakitas they just don't usually make the grade. I generally place in the lower 50% of the tournament contestants when running them. Where'as on a normal day I'm in the higher 50% based on my strategy or skill or dumb luck. I love how they look, but there are a ton more viable options out there competitively. I feel the same thing about the Dzu Te and the Quasatch. I love their monkey like skulpts, but there are just many more options that are better to play with.

Re: The Book of Gorillinators

Yeah they are graded around a C I believe, there are just better options. Like I told my friend sometimes you may have a great army but it's just not good VS what everyone else plays. If a tourney consisted of no A ranking figures somehow I could see them spike in use.
