HORDES: Kwaak Slickspine & Gub, Croak Sorcerers

Today we check out the new minion sorcerers who cast spells like a boss.

What Is It?

Wow magic frog croak twins!  Kwaak + Gub is a minion character solo that costs 4 points. This new minion solo is throwing out some serious frog magic.  If you were jealous before of Cryx or Retribution solos that could spell sling, they really don’t have anything on Kwaak + Gub.  Looking to heal up your wounded gatormen or corrode the enemy troops? This new solo has the magic tricks for you.


What’s It Do?

Kwaak + Gub have some average stats at DEF12 and ARM15.  You will need to keep them safe from long range guns or they will likely go down quick.  They are a great support piece because of the Share the Load.  This allows them to do double the work of your standard solo.  2 Venoms can be sick if you are trying to snipe a specific model and don’t get it on the first try.  Another nasty ability they have is HEAL.  This takes it out of your warlocks hands to fix missing aspects and can keep wounded gatormen in the fight longer.  Mudfoot and Enliven are less of big game changers but, can be useful in random situations.



What’s a List for Kwaak + Gub?

This list relies heavily on shooting to get the job done.  Kwaak + Gub can get some real nasty venoms out with the help of signs and portents.  This lets you roll an additional die on attack/damage rolls. Throw in some extra healing on Jaga or her beasts you can keep them battling longer.  Kwaak + Gub really fit in well in this list.

What Do I Think?

This new solo has a double personality. We like the double action spells here on BoLS.


It is a new kind of solo with some real new kind of thinking.  It is a really good solo at 4 points.  I think it should probably cost 5 but, it can die to a random POW10 with that low defense.

    I love the NQ Prime right up on this guy, and I can’t stop looking at him without thinking of Total Recall (original version). I like how he is seen as the avatar of their god which is actually conjoined twins. And I also like the lore of Croaks. Since their skin is poisonous they are inedible to gatormen and since they cannot be eaten they are seen as equals to gatormen in the Blindwater Congregation. Which is a neat and alien world view to begin. I cannot eat you, therefore you are my equal. I mean, heck the Gatormen religion pretty much centers around eating the spirits of the dead and eventually consuming the world.

    I was with you on the gatormen, but I think this is getting awfully close to GW IP, and I’m curious to see where it leads.

      In what sense? I mean if anything this is drawn from Total Recall.
