Watching some units get better is one of the great things about a new edition rule book in 40k. I know of course that some units also get worse, sorry Banshees, but it’s great to find some of my once unused units, get to the point of being pretty good on the table. One such unit being the Mawloc, which I am now very pleased with myself for magnetising up my Trygons to make them interchangeable. I have had some real fun times with my three Trygons, but I think it is now time to switch over those magnetised bits and bring out the Mawlocs...
So what is it about the Mawloc that has changed? Well, compared to a Trygon, it still does suffer from a lower weapon skill and a reduced number of attacks. Although it now has the potential of two attacks on the charge if it’s out of Synapse range and fails its leadership test, which is useful. More importantly though, are the changes to Terror of the Deep!
It’s pretty obvious that there has been a massive drop in the number of vehicles on the table, and we all know the reasons why. So that means lots and lots of more dudes on foot, which just made that S6 AP2 Large blast a whole lot better, especially with the increased 2+ armour save that is everywhere, due to the majority of power weapons being AP3. What more can I say, sounds like fun doesn’t it?
