Where riding Wolfs is fun, and riding hopping squigs is an extreme sport, then charging around on Mangler Squigs is just totally insane!
Mangler Squigs are enomouse cave squigs that take a number of the bravest or most stupid Night Goblins / Moonclan Grots prodding them in the right direction like a hurtelling commet.
General Moonclan Mangeler Squigs Tactics
Mangler Squigs Are monsters, and as monsters thier abilities reduce as they take wounds. This means that you will want to get your Mangler Squigs in to combat as soon as possible. This should not be a problem as they start with a 3D6″ move. This works out at 3″ to 18″ move with an average of 10.5″.
All the Mangeler Squigs weapons are melee weapons, so there are no reasons to hang back. If you don’t pile in then you won’t get value for points.
Another point is that in a Grot / Goblin only army you are a bit short on heavy hitting units. If you have a Mangler Squig it will stand out and be a target, but it also will be a bit hammer to crack some tough nuts. Just don’t get stuck fighting massed troop units that your other units could deal more effitiantly.
Modelling Grot Mangeler Squigs
Squgs are fairly easy to scratch build as they are balls with legs and teath!
If you don’t want to make your own Mangeler Squigs, then Games Workshop do a very detailed dynamic model, however it is difficult to build. There’s one big mangeler squig balanced perceriously on tpp of another. If you are going to build the double decker mangeler then you will need to get busy with some quality pinning! Another popular option is to split the double decker mangler in to two seperate manglers. This is much easier, and you get two models for the price of one!
