Gutbusters play much like they always have, with some key benefits compared to the previous edition.
If you’ve not got yourself a Butcher yet, the new edition is the perfect time. With a hefty 7 wounds and a respectable (for a Wizard) save of 5+, Butchers were already pretty tough, and the extra -1 to hit on enemy attacks from Look Out, Sir! is icing on the cake.

The Butcher’s Bloodgruel ability further increases his toughness at a distance. If you’re not familiar with this ability, every time a Butcher successfully unbinds a spell, they roll a dice and heal a wound on a 2+ – with a 30″ unbind being the standard in the new edition, you’ll find this ability comes into play a lot. To further mess with enemy casters, you could combine this with a particularly devious realm-specific artefact – the Trickster’s Helm…
The Tyrant, too, is a solid pick in the new edition – you’ll want to take a couple in every Gutbusters list. For one, you’ll be able to make better use of the new command abilities like At the Double!, while for another, being able to use the Bully of the First Degree command ability multiple times is going to be really handy.
This command ability inflicts a few mortal wounds on a unit, but makes it immune to battleshock. Previously, you could only affect a maximum of one unit a turn with this due to the restrictions on using command abilities, but now you’ll be able to shield two (or even three!) units right at the start of the game by taking multiple Tyrants and purchasing some extra command points. You could structure your army around a couple of big blocks of Ironguts – these guys have seen a welcome points reduction in the new edition, and, thanks to the changes to piling in, should have an easier time getting stuck in with the foe.

Talking of points drops, both the Grot Scraplauncher and the Ironblasternow cost less, while Maneaters, an ever-popular allies choice for ogors, also cost fewer points.

Looking forward to the new edition? You’ve not got long to wait! Pre-orders begin on the 16th of June – find out what you’ll be able to get on launch weekend in our massive preview.
