The Book of Gorillinators

The Book of Gorillinators
Jandar's Oath - Collection 3 - "Gorillas and Hounds"


If you cannot see the Army Card graphic, check Hasbro's Unit Page for stats and special powers, plus "character biography" and other non-game unit info.

Character Bio: When Vydar had a vision of these agents, he was not sure what to think about these reclusive Primadons. He suspected that they were too primitive and lacking in the ways of warfare to be of any use in his army. But Vydar took a chance on them, and luckily, he was proven wrong. The Gorillinators are more advanced than many others on Valhalla. The secret development of superior technology on Marr has given them awesome capabilities in battle: they can move at astounding speeds, overtaking enemy positions in minutes; they can use their ranged attacks to neutralize any threat; and their body armor is made of Kiradium alloy, which makes bringing one of them down a daunting task. (Hasbro)

While I am here, I would like to dispel the myth that the G'nators suck. If you have two squads of these guys, add in Raelin and the Nakita, you will have an army that is pretty hard to beat.

In fact, you just need two squads of these guys to do some damage.

I think most people forget how the G'nators are different than other ranged units. Here are some of the things that stand out:

1. The G'nators have a below average defense. A defense that is lower than almost every other ranged unit. Sure, they get one certain shield, but they can only get 2 shields maximum.

2. The more defense die they get, the more their ability helps them. On the other hand, if your G'nator had 2 defense dice, they would be a force that is pretty hard to kill. 2 possible shields + 1 absolute shield beats 3 possible shields any day. This only gets better as more defense dice are added to the G’nators. If you have ever tried to kill a G’nator that is rolling 4 dice you will know what I am talking about.

3. They are fast. Very fast. For a range unit at least. They can gain the high ground easily, or they can rush for glyphs faster than other ranged units. (If you don’t know already, it is better to have ranged units on a glyph.)


So what did we learn from this? The G’nators are weak without an advantage. If you just have them sitting in the middle of the board shooting at the enemy, they will die. Luckily, the G’nators are good at getting the advantages they need. They have a high speed, so they gain height quickly. If you are playing with a G’nator based army, that should be your first priority. Get the gorillas up high. Everything you do on the first few turns should help you do this. (If your enemy gets the high ground first, he will tear you G’nators to confetti. There is no reason this should happen though.)

This is where the Nakita help your army. A few turns with them in the beginning, and your Primadons should have the glyphs, high ground, or any other advantageous position. Once you have your G’nators settled in you can begin a nice rain of death coming from their guns. In order to keep them firing away happily, I recommend having Raelin with you. (Now would be the time to move her forward. Keep her in the back until you have your positions.) A Gorillanator with height and Raelin behind him is a impossible to kill. If you can set up this formation fast, you have won the game.

So, do you guys still think these guys need to be put into the same group as DW7 and Dund?

I like your idea chimpy, about the 2x G'nators, Raelin, and Nakita Agents. You still have 120 points left to use on a heavy hitter...... like Krug

Another reason Wave 3 is my favorite - such fun character designs and varied common squads.
The Gorrilinators rock on elevated, heavy snow.
We had a map that featured an elevated glacier smack dab in the middle of the board during the pre-Nakita days.

We played it for 3-4 consecutive weekends. Never got tired of it and the Gorillinators were employed A LOT. They can haul butt and take the top.
Love the way they play: you're moving about fast and two of the three Primadon poses lend themselves really well to crouching and hiding behind glaciers, trees, etc.


Of course it's also fun when your opponent's rolling his attack and he comes up with 1 skull.
"Tough."
Continue playing...

Playing against the Gorillinators and Nakitas, I've found 'Reavers to be good at pinning them down. Tough nearly negates any attacks and Engagement Strike makes it a risky engagement endeavor, but it's fun to nip those Primadons from skirting around while The Monks jump in on them or Keamon fires away with his SA at the Vydar forces.
Wulsinu or the 'Stalkers can be used too.

That is the best defense against them I have heard yet. Once you take away the G'nator's mobility he is useless. I will keep that mind next time my friend drafts the rats.

I think that a nakita g'nator combo would fall quickly in our games because when we draft we always make sure to have at least 1 unit or squad that can attack with special attacks just to bypass nakita smoke bombs/ g'nator auto shield, Ninjas dissapear, rats scatter ect.

I love the g'nators, but I hate the Nakita. I don't think in any of the dozen games I've used them in have they ever successfully used their smoke powder. They just die.

I really want to get a couple packs of these guys to get full use of the Nakitas. Stupid Wave 3 being gone.

monkeys are really annoying to fight. when i go for height i just get beaten to it and shot at. and if i roll just 1 the monkeys have that armor of theirs . i'll roll an extra dice for attack higher than his then he goes "their the same, ur attack won't work, my monkeys get tough" . man i hate those fast monkeys

want to read a good fanfic? read "after the swarm" and if you really liked that please read my sequal, after the swarm, fight for survival!
both of these fanfics have action, dispair, adventure, and marro! it will be worth the read trust me on this one
