Set 2: Bugbear Trooper
By Bruce R. Cordell and Rob Heinsoo
It Rocks: The Bugbear Trooper is a cheap 8-point model that provides
solid support to your warband. It can scent its enemies within 12 inches,
whether in light or dark, which sometimes makes the difference between
victory and defeat.
& Tactics: Because Bugbear Troopers are cheap for their 17 armor
and 3 health, include at least one in your warband. They are not difficult
troops, so a commander can easily maneuver one into contact with an opposing
model already engaged with two other models (which grants each the standard
+2 flanking bonus). Bring up the Bugbear Trooper last if it is the least
robust of the three, to protect your flanking bonus as long as possible.
The Trooper has one thrown weapon, which is easy to forget about, but
use it if possible.
Who Hate to See It: Because Bugbear Troopers deal blunt damage,
skeletal creatures are far more vulnerable to a Bugbear Trooper than other
similarly priced models.
