I'm running into a bit of a quandary about how run a tournament TL list I've been tooling with. It's got a slann, engine, starseer, two stegs and saurus guard battleline, and a solar engine. That leaves about 445 points to play around with, and in two separate lists I've ran Gotrek, and then for the same points as him threw in a skink priest, chief on steg, and emerald lifeswarm. Gotrek is super slow but once he's near an objective there's not going to be much that can make him budge. He only saw combat twice in the 4 round game (called it then) and annihilated both units, but my opponent was easily able to screen around him all game. The skink chief on steg can hit hard but doesn't have Gotrek's staying power, lifeswarm helped guarantee some healing, and the priest was well worth it for buffing the bastiladon night and day difference in the performance. i'm not sure how many of you have ran gotrek, but in the tournament scene is he mandatory? Or is the more option list going to require more finesse but ultimately help more? Love to hear y'all's opinions on the guy.
