Happy Friday Wyrdos! It's time for another preview from the Other Side. We have looked at the commanders who lead their forces, and the titans who tower over the battlefields. Now it is time to look at the units who make up the bulk of the fighting forces of the Other Side. We are going to start with the Striped Skulkers of the Gibbering Hordes!
The Skulkers embody stealth. Their skin pigment changes to match their surroundings, making them very difficult to see until it is too late. They try to stick to dark places, slinking from shadow to shadow as they creep up on their unsuspecting prey. Worse yet, their incredibly sharp teeth contain a potent venom, making them effective against even larger prey.
On the table, Striped Skulkers are forward scouts and assassins that are more self-reliant than other Hordes forces. Unlike other units, it can sometimes be a good idea to let Striped Skulkers perish when attacked, as they can use the Endless Numbers Ability of the Gibbering Hordes Allegiance to come back almost anywhere in play. This allows them to continually reappear in strange places on the battlefield, ensuring that the opponent must continually protect their objectives to keep them from being stolen away by a unit of reappearing Skulkers.
Head on over to our forums to discuss this new unit!
