how do you guys work around the limited amount of pathfinder we have? I have only played three games thus far, all theree bump lists with the heretic.. I also own dreamer, but have her as my DM caster currently.. that I have yet to play. with the new steamroller rules placing an obstacle or forest in the middle of the board, i get congested there often. is it a matter of deployment? deplo my neigh slayers in the middle to hopefully get a charge giving them pathfinder? or just work around it? seems we are limited on the pathfinder options.. wanderer i think? but he has no assassination game.. maybe im just used to heretic..
Bump doesnt have too many problems once holden releases - you have a unit of hollowmen with it, murder crows have it, neighs have relentless etc. Old Witch3 really helps because she can machine gun some tactical boundless charges when neccesary.
Dark Menagerie has King, ghostly gorehounds, skin and moans animus mostly
Pathfinder is definitely an intentional weakness but i havent found it to be too much of a problem. Just takes practice playing without it once youre used to it
Wanderer and the old witch both can bring pathfinder when needed. With the Heretic I like to play double piggybacks, so I very rarely charge, favouring the ever-encroaching ARM 19 piggybacks just bullying stuff out of zones. With the dreamer in bump I rely on her own not-insignificant tricks to work around pathfinder issues while letting the power of hollow men and the tankiness of piggies force enemies into the open. With the King of Nothing I just swarm the enemy, and feeding cheap beasts (crabbits and gorehounds) to the enemy gives me a pretty significant attrition advantage after using Taste of Ashes - once the enemy is in such dire straits, they are forced to leave the safety of difficult terrain.
I only use Neigh Slayers with the old witch and with the King of Nothing. For the rest combinations of dread rots, hollow men and piggybacks I find work a treat. You just gotta play around the pathfinder issue - like others have said, it's an intentional weakness of the faction, but imo is by no means crippling.

Paying attention to terrain when deploying and being hyper aware of what needs to tackle what during game is how I've dealt with it. I came from Trolls playing mostly Jarl, so I had Pathfinder at will. It was a huge handicap the first few times I played my Grymkin.
