This week as we take a peek at the Other Side we find ourselves eye to eye with the Barbed Crawler. Let’s take a look at them!
At the bottom of the Gibbering Hordes food chain lie the Crawlers. The second most common species (if they can be called a distinct species, given their penchant for mutation) are the Barbed Crawlers. In Malifaux’s oceans, these creatures swam in the shallows, launching toxic barbs from their bodies to kill their prey. Now they roam the lands and seas of Earth, looking for food and new lairs to lay their eggs.
On the table, Barbed Crawlers are one of the Gibbering Hordes’ only ranged units. Barbed Crawlers serve as a cheap source of ranged attacks and, when needed, cannon fodder. Their barbs aren’t very dangerous, but the automatic application of Pinned Tokens can assist in whittling down enemy forces. When in Glory, their barbs gain a number of very useful Triggers that allow them to fill multiple battlefield roles.
Head on over to the Wyrd forums to discuss your plans for these little monsters!
