    Chaos troll question

    Can you attach a sorcerer or exalted with eye of the gods to a chaos troll unit and have it benefit their mutant regeneration roll? If so, do you think it is worth it, and how would it affect ranks?

    here quote this from another forum:
    "The Eye of the Gods roll from Mutant Regeration is to the benefit of the trolls, not the character, and so having Favour of the Gods will not help the roll."
    Chaos Trolls & Favor of the Gods?

    hope that helps

    Yeah it would only affect the mutant regen roll if the character himself had mutant regen,

    They FaQd it to say that if a character had favor of the gods and they were blessed by a warshrine then it would affect it, but in this situation the character is also getting the blessing, whereas with the regen only the trolls are affected.

    you can stick a BSB in there with blasted standard to give them a 5+ vs flaming arrows though !

    but why would u every do that as any1 with the slightest bit of common sense would just shoot the bsb and a 5+ ward is hardly worth it

    BSB with mark of tzeentch a shield and blasted standard,

    the only thing that can kill him is a template or a cannon, or one of the very few models with sniper.

    just because he doesn't get LoS doesn't mean he can be targeted by himself, you cant just say "oh im going to shoot that specific model right there" hes still part of the unit, he has a 3+AS and a 4+ ward vs shooting so its not like hes very fragile.

    if you can stop that one flaming shootin attack that goes before the rest and negates your regen then you are laughing. plus if the regen is negated you still have a 5+ vs shooting.

    im not saying its super awesome, but its very handy when running large blocks of trolls.

    I run 17 trolls+throgg+BSB on a juggernaut with blasted standard a lot.

    Yeah cannons suck, but cannons always suck. the blasted standard is awesome vs things like wood elves or dark elves with large numbers of small strength shots, if you can keep your regen for a round then great.

    in regards to the OP you could also run Valkyia, she lets you re-roll any roll on the eye of the gods table.

    Troll's are pretty tanked as is, the EOTG roll is just icing on the cake...Just run Throgg with your trolls and laugh as you tear open a can of whoop on your opponents elite infantry.
