HORDES: Longchops Goes for the Headshot

2 Minute Read
Mar 20 2018

Longchops is one scary gatormen. We check out this new minions solo today.

What Is It?

Longchops is a new minion solo for gatormen. If you wanted a gator with a rifle this is the solo for you, literally.  It’s a gator with a rifle!    He is a character so only 1 shooty gator that will run you 5 points.  He fills an interesting role that can cause issues for lists that rely on tough or RFP denial. He has some unique traps that can keep him safe and can be that one man show if you can live the dream.

What Does Longchops Do?

Longchops is loaded with rules.  He can hide in terrain and get up the field quick with Pathfinder and Advance deploy.  Cover tracks provides you with some battlefield denial that keep you relatively safe from non 2″ reach low armor infantry.  If you can position him near an obstacle that the enemy can’t get around he can be pretty hard to remove without ranged attacks.  However, it is only POW10 so don’t expect heavier models to just run through it.  His ability to shoot is his most useful aspect and his removal from play can cause issues for feats dependent on bringing models back.  There is no boost mechanic for his rifle though so don’t expect him to have much impact on enemy heavies.  Use him to RFP models that might come back or have tough.

A Good List for Longchops?

This list tries to get the most out of gatormen and the gatormen theme.  One of the great things this theme provides is free models.  Longchops can be one of those free models. This is all about getting into your opponents face and not worrying about the counterattack. 8 box gatormen and free solos is a easy way to overwhelm the underprepared.
