The Northkin trolls’ new warlock is out. Lets check out the icy caster today.

What Is It?

Kolgrimma is the new frigid Northkin Warlock for Trollbloods. Kolgrima is a support caster enabling her models through tricks of ice and movement buffs.
With the combination of clouds and her Feat she can severly hamper the enemies plans. If you want to experince some dark power and see how the cold effects your enemies, Kolgrima might be the warlock for you.

Skills/Stats/Abilities:

Cursed Fate: Great for killing high armor 1 box models.
Freezing Mist: Blocking charges to heavies is great utility for trolls.
Hunter’s Mark: Not having to take Lynssa will free up points while still maintaining the long threat.
Vanish: Useful to score zones or get farther back after feating.
Winter’s Tide: Sp10″ with the ability to stationary. 18″ threat with Vanish can make casters weary.
Dark Power: Easy ways to get that hunters mark or stationary crit off.
Feat(Snowblind): Enemy loses it’s cool buffs and gets pushed 2″. It is not as debilitating as Axis’s feat since you don’t lose speed but, it can win the scenario game if the enemy is only toeing the zone.

 

Sample ArmyList:

Kolgrimma is a Northkin warlock so it is only fitting to run her in the Northkin theme. This list gives you speed with the Axer’s rush on the 2 Maulers and some tanky units to hold zones with champions and the Krielstone. Kolgrimma can snipe out annoying models with her 10″ spray while staying safe behind the line.

Hearthgut Hooch Hauler [18]

Revenant’s Final Thoughts:

Kolgrimma plays similar to Doomy1 using her troops to control the line and eventually grind for a win. She isn’t to overbearing but does have a new trollkit for troll players to try out. With Rush and Hunter’s Mark a Mauler’s threat range is respectable.

We give her a C+

    C+?! She swept my state tournament recently. I’m not so sure about that list either, it doesn’t seem to capitalize off the strengths of the Northkin Stone and the Hooch Hauler looks crammed in.

    • Drew

      I agree. The Hooch Hauler is good, but I think I’d go for another unit or two instead.

      • Apocryphus

        Bears, at least. With the last 8 points you could take another light, or heck, take a Mountain King instead of those Maulers and shoot THAT across the table with Rush and Hunter’s Mark.

    • marxlives

      Do you remember what lists were being run with her? Could be some solid input for players interested in her.

      • Apocryphus

        I don’t have easy access to the list right now, but double bears and Glacier King were definitely at the core of it. I remember seeing Fire Eaters at the top players table as well.

        • marxlives

          Excellent man cause guess who owns a Glacier King? This guy. Wait where are my thumbs!?

          • Apocryphus

            Glacier King is really good in SotN, since the stone buffs his gun. That optional push combos well with Kolgrimma’s feat too and since her feat also turns off shooting, she can protect it from gunlines relatively well.

          • Apocryphus

            Alright, here was the list:

            Wow, very crunchy on the tabletop and on the lore. I just “borrowed” it on my Warroom!

          • Apocryphus

            Good luck with it! I’ve played into it several times, the owner if that list is a regular opponent of mine, and it forces a lot of unfavorable positioning dilemmas and hits surprisingly hard while being next to impossible to charge and very difficult to shoot down.

          • ZeeLobby

            Only thing that threw my buddy off was the winter trolls. I mean it must be a fluff inclusion, because fire eaters would probably be stronger, or maybe even a brawler. And with her feeding the Glacier King the winter trolls will probably be overloaded if they boost too much.

          • Apocryphus

            Ah, yeah. They do get a bit of a buff with the Northkin Stone bringing their spray to POW 14 and Cursed Fate makes them effective RAT 7, so they can get some decent work done. Brawlers hadn’t been released yet at the time of the event, but that player usually likes to spread his beast presence out a bit. The primary goal was to capitalize off the Stone cold damage buff and hold things in place/tear things apart with the battle bears while the rest of the army controlled and cleaned up. He was undefeated at the event, so they worked out well, it seems.

    • ZeeLobby

      Yeah. She’s def strong. Dunno what they’re smoking. Looks like a fluff list. Lol.

      • Apocryphus

        Nothing wrong with fluff lists, no, but they don’t usually give an accurate measure of the ‘caster.

    All I know, is myth can teach us anything, people with owls as friends are dangerous AF.
