Ever wanted to recreate the charge that the rohirim do in the Return of the King? Have you ever asked yourself, how fast is too fast? Welcome to this Rundown on Centigors.
We are using this unit in a Maggotkin army by fulfilling all the requirements of the Pestilent Throng warscroll battalion, to take advantage of Blades of putrefaction. The mortal wound spell from the maggotkin battletome.
Speed and output. These are the assault troops of your dreams.
You can have them units of 5 – 20
Move 14″, they can run and charge and in a Nurgle army they can have +2″ from the wheel, +3″ from the Great Unclean One with a bell. So that’s at least 19″. If you cast Chronomantic Cogs then you are now at 22″ +d6 Movement. Those feet will take you where you need to go.
Combat and Survivability
In combat, these guys are ok without any buffs. Not what I would consider a mainline combat unit like 30 tzangor, witch elves or grimghast reapers but solid.
They get to reroll wounds if they charge and at the start of your hero phase you can say they are drunk like all mad Satyrs and give them +1 to hit and to be hit in the combat phase.
Each Centigor has 4 attacks base 2 that hit on 4s and 2 that hit on 5s so plus to hit is really nice with reroll to wound. They do lack rend though but here is where we can really improve these bad boys.
with only a 5+ save they might seem like a glass cannon but with +1 to save in combat from the shields this does improve. With the speed this unit has too, you should be able to dictate what combats you get into.
