The Armies of Firestorm: Stoneklaw’s Gustompas
Very few Destruction generals could be commended for their complex tactics, but there’s no denying the distinctive kunnin’ streak possessed by certain orruk warlords. Perhaps no orruk is quite as “inspired” as Gulgaz Gustompa, a Bonesplitterz orruk hailing from the Aqshy, you may remember from Path to Glory. Back in Path to Glory, Gulgaz was an aspiring warlord – now, he sits at the head of a colossal Destruction army seeking to conquer the Realm of Fire and build an empire.
In Firestorm, you’ll be able to dedicate your own Destruction army to Stoneklaw’s Gutstompas, benefiting from some Insane Advice:
You may be wondering what Stratagems are. Stratagems are a new feature for your games of Firestorm that allow you to accumulate points between missions and spend them on carefully chosen benefits – this could mean setting up one unit before a game to ambush another, or even forcibly taking the first battle round! Representing the insane and contradictory tactical advice given to him by his totemic severed heads, the Gutstompas get to use a stratagem for free every game, and even allow you to use stratagems outside of Firestorm.
If you fancy leaning fully into the unpredictable nature of Stoneklaw’s Gustompas, we think the Moonclan are a great choice. Firstly, who doesn’t want to have an army of Squigs? They even won a recent heat of the Warhammer Age of Sigmar Grand Tournament! We’d recommend taking at least one full-sized regiment of 20 Cave Squigs.
This isn’t just for intimidation purposes – get lucky, and you could find yourself rolling the Reinforcements stratagem, allowing you to set up your “Squig Herd of Death” all over again after it dies!
Bonespitterz are probably the most reliable way to take advantage of your random stratagems. With a pool of versatile units – Arrowboys providing short-range missile support, Boarboys acting as fast cavalry – there are few Insane Advice results that won’t benefit the Bonesplitterz in some way.
Forced March, for instance, lets you close the distance on the foe, while Hatred is handy against a particularly tricky enemy.
You’ll be able to pre-order Firestorm and start your own Stoneklaw’s Gustompas army tomorrow – make sure to come back then and secure your copy!
