Look in the books to find the better ones. However, i would say grut because of better bonding.

Why don't you look for these types of answers in the Units forum?

Gruts mainly so you have a bonding unit for Grimnak and so he can fully use his abilities.

It really depends on how you play if you have other sets or like the idea of the shield wall go with the Romans but if all you have is the original master set than go with the Gruts. It all depends on your game play and How your gameplay will get better If you get this set.

Spread Positivity and the joys of gaming.

Try playing with multiple squads of each using proxies. This will allow you to see which ones you like better.

Strangely enough this was the same thing I was thinking. I'm getting Gruts because of the fact that I have two orc leaders and one squad of heavies. As somebody said to me from Recruit Con

Answer the following questions with a yes, a no, or a number!

a)Do you have the Wave 1 hero pack?

b)Do you have the Wave 2 hero pack?

c)Do you have any Knights and Swog?

If you answered Yes to a) and Yes to b), but no to c), go with Romans.

If you answered No to a), go with Gruts.

If you answered Yes or No to a), Yes to b) and >=1 to c) go get yourself some Gruts!

If you answered No to everything, go rectify that first.

Romans, no contest (but that's just my opinion).

One of the main reasons I wouldn't suggest Romans without knowing anything else is that the Archers are pretty lackluster. Furthermore, if he doesn't have Marcus Decimus Gallus, and maybe even Me-Burq-Sa, even the Legionnaires aren't that good. They're very good if you do have those two hero packs though. I suppose they could bond with Ne-Gok-Sa, but my playstyle tends to be a bit more aggressive.

Assuming that he's got a Master Set, the blade gruts will give Grimnak something to bond with. He and Tornak become a lot better with a little squad of Orc Warriors running around. Arrow Gruts are one of the most powerful and versatile units in the game if you've got Krug and some Swogs.

1 of each and buy a third one you don't have , or go from the gut, who do you enjoy using more.

I use them both a lot. I find I will get a bigger swarm of the orcs, so I would get more of them in the long run.
