As some of you know already, I am playing Menoth. Its just to know.
I am really fascinated by trollbloods - for me, fluff-wise and look-wise they are the best Hordes faction (along with farrow. hruuuurgh! ^^) If everything be ok, I am going to start a Trollblood army in October(for my birthday).
I've been carefully observing TB games in my meta - pDoomshaper, eDoomshaper and Borka. Borka infantry heavy, Doomies more beasty. But all games(they was against different opponents - cryx, cygnare, scorne, circle, khador, almost everyone) shared the same sad trait - trollbloods showed themselvesas as an extremely passive army(though a winning one, can't take it from them. They spent tremendous amount of time to fling and juggle buffs and animi and then do almost nothing - a bit of advance, occasionally charge... I expected that such army must be insanely tough and hard to kill(no, I dont mean kind of tough), but they die as easy as anyone, sometimes even easier it seemed.
The only casters I am going to play are Gunnbjorn, Calandra and Jarl, maybe also Grim Angus. Absolutely don't like any others, no matter how strong they are. Also going to try to make them as beast-heavy as possible - I am absolutely not a fan of units, 1 or 2 is a maximum. Playsytle-wise I prefer attrition - love to exterminate enemy army. So can you tell me please, is this passiveness pelicular to all trolls? Or it's only those particular casters or even only that person's playstyle? Cos It was clearly uninspiring and boring way to play for me.
