Staff Showdown List Building: Grymkin

Did you know that if you mention the King of Nothing in the Grymkin Facebook group, I will show up?

Hello, Defiers—Jeff here with a preview of the army I’ll be playing during the Staff Showdown on April 12th, live from the Privateer Press Studios!

So, what will I be playing and why? Let’s have a look…

The King of Nothing [+28]
- Clockatrice [13]
- Crabbits (2) [7
- Crabbits (2) [7]
- Baron Tonguelick, Lord of Warts [0(4)]
Grave Ghoul [4]
Hollowmen (max) [13]
- Hollow Holden [4]
- Lantern Man [3]
Malady Man [0(6)]
Malady Man [0(6)]
Neigh Slayers (max) [12]
- Neigh Slayer Warhorse [4]
Neigh Slayers (max) [12]
- Neigh Slayer Warhorse [4]
Piggybacks (max) [15]
- Piggyback Officer [4]

“But, Jeff,” you might say, “this isn’t your usual list!”

And you would be right. However, I wanted to take this opportunity to showcase every model we added in the Grymkin CID. That means Baron Tonguelick, Malady Men, Neigh Slayer Warhorses, and a Grave Ghoul. While this is not the usual package of models I generally prefer, I think it all comes together pretty well!

King of Nothing gives me my usual cloud walls and armor debuffing (as do the Piggybacks), which I just adore. The Warhorse adds some additional punching power and utility to the unit, which I’m super-pumped to play around with. The Grave Ghoul has plenty of things to collect Corpses from, and in a pinch…well, sometimes a monkey needs to jump into his bag! I’m hoping to leverage his rerolls to make a big Combined Ranged Attack super-scary or really amp up a Hail Mary spell assassination from the King. Lastly, Tonguelick gives me a bit more fury to play with, along with some disruption and support.

All in all, I’m excited to put this list on the table!

You, too, will be able to check out this list in all its glory (or flaming failure) when Hungerford and I go head-to-head in the Staff Showdown on April 12th.

So, what kind of lists are you excited about building with all the new Grymkin models? Hit us up on social media, and let me know what you’re going to try out first!
