Step right up and spin the Wheel of Warlocks!
I was a Troll player from a while back, but haven't been playing them for a little bit. I'd like to make use of some of the unpainted stuff I have in order to help with painting motivation.
The models I need to paint (and therefore would need to be in my list) are:
Long Riders (Max)
Pyg Burrowers (Max)
Kriel Warriors (With UA + Cabers)
Horthol (Don't actually have, but since I will be using Long Riders, I'd be a fool to pass him up)
I'm aiming for the 50 point level, so that's ~33 points used up (depending on number of cabers taken).
What I'm looking for is: What caster you would recommend for this army (maybe with some thoughts on why).
Burrowers tend to work best with Warlocks that can help with their MAT - most guides suggest Grim (debuffs enemy DEF) or Calandra. Grim could offer Cross Country to the Long Riders giving them Hunter and Pathfinder, but wouldn't give anything specific to the Kriels, although again debuffs really help everyone.
I carry all of those units in my Madrak 2 list. The burrowers do need help hitting so Fel Callers and Stone Scribe Chronicler help, but slams from your long riders also help knock down letting the burrowers do really nasty things especially on Feat turn. Razcalking is also very correct Calandra and Grim do beautiful things for everyone especially burrowers.

Thanks for the input. I was leaning towards Madrak2 even though Fenns would be better with the feat. I think I have Grim tucked away and Calandra would be a nice change of pace from a frontline caster like Madrak or a bob and weave sniper like Grim. I'll check them out.
