The Trollkin are one of the sturdiest, toughest people in the Iron Kingdoms. They’re renowned for being after to take a punch square on their craggy chins and responding with a very mean punch of their own. Their attrition game is one of the best, and conversely, their ability to set up a viable gunline is recognized as one of their week points. This, naturally, is why my my Trollbloods back Hordes MkII were most often led by Grim Angus, and packed a full unit of Pyg Bushwhackers. The release of Captain Gunnbjorn made me ridiculously happy, because it opened up the door for the third subsect of Trollbloods to get some love. The first was the traditionalists, centered on the Krielstone, Fennblades and Champions. The second was the Northkin, with their polar bears and all that beer. The third – the “modern” army – with their firearms and military training – finally had a poster boy.
Brigadier General Gunnbjorn has put aside his trademark bazooka, and I won’t lie – that makes me very sad. However, there’s a lot to be said for a boostable armor-piercing POW12 rifle, and while Gunnbjorn may no longer be risking permanent damage to his own hearing, the Trollkin Barrage Team has stepped in to fill the gap.
