The Mad Maximus Force of the Farrow

Let me start off by fully admitting my love affair with the Farrow Slaughterhousers. Since starting the faction two years ago, they have been my favorite unit. This list is my homage to them.

Midas is a neat Warlock that our Faction has with a neat Feat. Pet Cemetery has the potential to be pretty amazeballs. Battle Lust is so awesome on the Slaughterhousers that is it almost criminal when you pull it off.

I run a Razor Boar for the utility.

I am a huge fan of the Twin Road Hog Alpha. Full Boar + Charge + Heavy Flamethrower = AWESOME!. Watching your opponent deal with that is funny. You honestly want them do die so that you can bring them back with Midas's Feat on your next turn. If you can pull it off though, try and light his Warcaster or Warlock on fire, that is pretty funny.

An advance deployed mob of Farrow Slaughterhousers on mop up duty. Eighteen shock troopers with reach, fearless, tough, finisher, take down, and powerful charge. Hells Yes! Charge your already softened up targets and let the slaughter begin. Just don't forget about Take Down. No tough rolls. So sweet. Which ever unit has Battle Lust on it will probably do most of your work here. 5D6 Damage is all I am going to say.

The Star of the Show as it were, Maximus. New and awesome, he is an auto-include here. I have honestly only had him on the table for a handful of games. He is a true Super Solo and I think we will be seeing alot more of Mad Maximus in the future. There is just something about a Farrow Slaughterhouser with a Fellblade that calls to me.

Alten Ashley just because it is nice having a Monster Hunter/ Sniper on tap.

Rulak Mooreclaw marshaling two Buccaneers is so much fun. I love that I get to play with Jacks. I like that the Buccaneers can assault and knockdown models.

Midas's Feat is where your late game is so awesome. And... I raise two undead Road Hogs. Pretty nuts since they are still able to activate if they were not destroyed that turn.
