AoS Gargant Tactics

Age of Sigmar Giant Gargant

How to use Gargants in Age of Sigmar Games Gargants or ‘Aleguzzlers’ are Giants. All giants are monsters too. Gargants appear in several armies so if you play Chaos, Orcs, Ogors, then they can be a flexible addition to your model collection. Chaos Gargants do not have the ‘Chaos’ keyword, however it is quite reasonable to have a Chaos Gargant as part of a Chaos army. Gargants are monsters but they are not invulnerable. Like most monsters they start dropping in speed and hitting power as they take on wounds. You only have to take.2 wounds before the giant starts slowing down. Also buy: Discount AoS Giants from Wayland Games Special Rule – Drunken Swagger I am glad to see that the unstable nature of giants has made the transition from Warhammer 8th edition to Age of Sigmar. In AoS this is captured in the ‘Drunken ‘Swagger’ special rule. Basically on the roll of a double when charging the giant falls over. This could potentially squash friendly units near by. The cure fir this is to give the giant a wide birth before you let them charge in! Special Rule – Stuff’Em In Me Bag This is a great rule…

AoS Orruk Great Shaman Tactics

Orc / Orruk Shaman and Bor Boyz

 AoS Orruk Great Shaman and Orc Great Shaman tactics in Age of Sigmar. AoS Orruk Great Shamans are the wizards of the Ork or Orruk army. They draw energy from frenzied Orruk Boys around them and focus it in to magic energy. Be warned though, Great Shaman magic can be unpredictable. If there’s too much wild energy the Great Shamans head may explode! ( don’t worry the head exploding bit did not get in to the Age of Sigmar rules ). Orruk Great Shaman Magic AoS Great Shamans can cast one spell in your hero phase. This spell could be one of the two basic spells in the main rules, or the Orurk Shamans own spell ‘Gaze of Mork’. Mork is one of the two Orruk gods. The other is Gork.Mork is the Orruk god of cunning, but knowing this does not help in the game. It’s just part of the back story. The Gaze of Mork spell can be very powerful, but a bit erratic. First off, it only has a cast value of 6 which is fairly easy to cast. The second bonus is that you can target up to 3 different enemy units ( you can not…

AoS Orruk and Grots Tactics

Orc / Orruk Shaman and Bor Boyz

In Age of Sigmar Orcs and Goblins have been renamed to Orruks and Grots. I think that this is partly because this sounds more in keeping with the mobish nature of the army, and partly because it makes searching for AoS stuff easier, You don’t have to wade through all that Tolkin stuff to find articles on your favourite game! – But that just my guess. Orruks and Grots are the fun army in the Age of Sigmar game. They are erratic and unpredictable. They are colourful and specially the Orruks, loud! Playing Orruks and Grots can be like playing two different armies at the same time. In fact you do not need to play both Orruks and Grots together. You could play a pure Orruk army or a purely Grot army. If you are playing a Grot only army be prepared to field a large number of models. This is because they die quickly and run away frequently! General Orc / Orruk Tactics Orruks are big brutish creatures that thrive on destruction and mayhem. At first looks there does not seem to be room for tactics in this army, just charge, beat-up anyone that stands in the way, and…
