    I really wish we had snotlings...

    I miss having hordes of puppy like greenskins to keep my foes busy while the boyz smash and maul everything.

    My favourite unit in TT. Heck, they were everyone's favourite. My opponents were sometimes reluctant to target them because they too wanted to see what hilarious consequences might ensue if it reached the front line.

    Honestly, with some of the cool greenskins units I've seen floating around that aren't in the game (there was this giant stone statue possessed by Gork or Mork, forget the name of it) they could make a new greenskins race or campaign pack representing greenskins native to the new world and lustria.

    I'd think it would be cool anyways.

    Edit because autocorrect can be a pain.

    it was literally called Stone Idol of Gork (or Mork).

    I have a friend of mine that thinks squigs are the most adorable thing in WH. Followed closely by Snotlings and Goblins.

    I remember when she made a 2500 point Skarsnik army. It had 40 squigs (+10 handlers) in a massive block. It also had 6 units of night goblins with 3 fanatics each (total of 18) Skarsnik and a night goblin shaman. She also had 2 mangler squigs.

    I thought it was gonna go poorly for her... boy was I wrong. There was so much pandemonium with the fanatics and mangler squigs that her opponent didn't know what to do (he was Skaven). They got decimated. By about turn 3 it was clear they had lost.

    Dude, this unit was ridiculous in the TT. On par with Doomfire Warlocks with my most hated units to fight against!

    So basically, yes, it is a kamikaze weapon?

    Yeah if it actually made it to combat it could deal some serious hurt. Of course, it also had a tendency to trundle along at a snails pace. I'm a master at rolling 'snake-eyes'.

    The randomness of Orc and Goblin armies were a serious draw for me. Fanatics, squig hoppers, squig herds, doom-divers, pump-wagons... and then there was animosity where your units would stop to pull faces or even attack an ally... So much fun! If that stuff actually frustrated anybody, then they should have collected elves.

    Greenskins are missing that magic in this game at the moment. Maybe a snottie pump wagon would actually go a long way to bringing back the green "charm".

    Snotlings were unbreakable in TT because they were too stupid to understand danger.

    Kamikaze? No. They don't seek death, they just don't understand the risk. They are like children playing with firearms.

    You know for Swarm units that are basically a bunch of small animals, (bats, snakes, scarabs, rats) I get how those couldn't be implemented. But Snotlings and Nurglings are basically tiny humanoids, maybe a third the size of a standard gobbo. Just make them function like infantry but with smaller models and very high numbers like 200+ on ultra. Make them a new size category on their card and stats that reflect their swarm nature.

    With... "exploding spores"... "S2" yes but have enough of them and considering said "Spores" ignore armour...

    Mangler squigs were the best/worst thing ever! (depending on which side they were on compared to me).

    I remeber the awesome moment in one of the battles I played where a mangler squig rampaged sideways along the entire battleline, hitting both sides in several combats, and even killing the orc warboss from the top of his wyvern(while leaving the wyvern itself unharmed, but confused). Ahh, good times!

    Yep, I hid the stats and the Pt. Cost but these are its rules.



    Notice the Unbreakable/Unstable rules, those are effectively what make the undead not retreat and instead crumble. Also it had really low leadership, so they crumbled as soon as their charge was over.

    I honestly want it to come in a flying variant called a Snotling Flappa Bird. Taking inspiration from the Flappa upgrade and the Giant Sploden Spores I wanted it to be explicitly kamikaze weapon. Kinda like an aerial squadron of Goblin Doom Divers.

    aaa the little rascals deserve a spot in the game.

    I am quite shocked by the quote from the Orc Warboss, that truly means they have to be adorable.

    I remember these dwarf drunks. They used to have their own rules and everything!
    I miss the humour of warhammer. Shame everything went so grim dark.
