I'm trying to get my brother to play a match with me again, what with us being stuck at home 24/7 and all. I'd like to get some input on the armies we'll have facing off each other. I'll test out minions Barnie2, and for my brother's army I'd prefer he run Grissel1/2 or Doomshaper3/2/1, since we've got the minis for those. Other than that it's back to proxymachine, so anything goes.

What kind of Trolls army do you guys think would stand a good chance against this? Obviously it's never going to be a pure 50/50, but I'd like to at least get to a point where both armies have solid tech against each other.
Mulg or Rok will wreck most things without Primal. Can be placed on Brawlers as needed. Generally Wild Aggression goes on a Brawler. They threat 13” without feat. Feat turn you look to do work with that Brawler, swap Wild Agression to where it’s needed and keep going.
Unpacking and lining up your alpha is the key/challenge. Bears threatening 14” from the side help keep heavies from wondering out too far. Arcane Vortex on Mulg means if you keep Rok and/or a Brawler close they are almost impossible to debuff. Primal Shock can be clutch for removing solos.
Overtake on the 2” reach Brawlers CAN do some work if they are also Wild Agressioned. Fairly straightforward list in what it does and the 16, 15, 14” threats all over mean you are likely to hit first. Against a limited infantry army generally that means you can dictate the piece trading.
Again, I like it and would definitely feel OK in to Barny2. Not a hard counter just a good game
