The Book of Grimnak

The Book of Grimnak
Rise of the Valkyrie - Master Set

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: Exiled from the primitive, savage world of Grut, Grimnak is an orc warrior of the most menacing kind. He thunders onto
the battlefield atop his ferocious T-Rex, raising his spear triumphantly and daring his foes to outrun him or to take cover. Enemies who cannot do so may very likely meet either of two gruesome fates. Those who manage to evade the vicious jabbing of Grimnak's spear may face the T-Rex's deadly chomp. Many a warrior has been swallowed whole-or munched a morsel at a time-by this barbarous beast, while their comrades could only look on in terror and revulsion. Grimnak's fellow orc warriors are wise to travel with him when they can: during battle they are well protected by Grimnak and the T-Rex, and with the added security and confidence comes increased
attack power.

Some things to remember when using Grimnak:
1) When to use Chomp: As said in the above quote, Chomp is optional and must be performed at a very precise "phase" of the turn: after he has moved and before he decides to attack. BUT, remember figures are never forced to move: they can "move" zero spaces.

2) Chomp + attack: Chomp is a Special Power, not a Special Attack. You can use Chomp AND then make a normal attack (Note: this is the case with all special powers, with few exceptions which are all clearly specified in the wording of the power).



Aranas

Things you might have missed in the rulebook:
Figures can't pass through friendly engaged figures.
Figures can't attack themselves.

stacked?

Does Orc Warriors Enhancement stack with other orc enhancements?

Tornak with Grimnak?
If I have an Orc warrior adjacent to both Tornak and Grimnak, does he get two extra dices?

How about with Nerak's aura?

DeadEye is surprisingly tart
I just strted to use orcs. I have one heavy, Ornak, and Grimnak. I use them with DW9K and the Zettian Guards for range. The team actually doesnt do too bad. I use Ornak's Red Flag Fury Aura and move Grimnak and the DW9k up. Then use the heavies to move Grimnak. The Zettians are there for second hance range (after the DW9K) or as glyph grabbers (if needed). with there range of 7 and if you happen to find they ranger glyph the Zettians and the DW9K can stand on glyphs and fire off. Then giving cover to Grimnak and the heavies. Which will allow chompy to fill his belly!

The Marvel set has revived my love of Grimnak. You want to make someone cry? Chomp his Hulk. Let me tell you, its one of the most satisfying d20 rolls you'll make in this game. Biting Captain America's head off (not in the same game) was almost as good, too. If only I could catch that rotten Silver Surfer ...

My friends and I are getting into the game. One of them played a ton of Zombies/Marro and Grimnak. About halfway through the game, his Zombies and Marro having been decimated, he takes Grimnak for a spin.

My hand to god, he made 8 Chomp rolls in a row. Combined with the squad figures that he just devoured outright, Grimnak alone killed off my entire army in about 5 rounds. Even though he was the biggest target on the field, I just couldn't seem to make an attack stick to him. All I could do is sit there and pout while he maniacally laughed and Chomped another.

One thousand points, right into his mouth. I will never underestimate this figure again!
