Trident Realms in 3.0

10 pts is Mead of Madness; its thinking that Helm of the Drunken Ram for cs1, tc3 on a nimble flying unit might be fun …

They have lots of special rules, which bumps their costs up over the direct damage they actually do in a straight comparison with some others, but they aren’t terrible.

Helm erase Strider/Pathfider. I use it on a 3rd thuul regiment. 2 Hidden Ones and one regular for a solid TC2. But Mead on THuul/DH is great.

I put in a 4th with brew of strength and bane chant on Ineesha cause thuul get hosed by phalanx without that

That is true. On the other hand most phalanx is low defense. If You Play with thuul only then I see a point but if You have other tools then I would prefer sharpness (cheaper for regiments) or Hammer.

I can’t fit sharpness sadly. Here’s my idea for changes

Trident Realm
The Hidden Ones [1] (Formation) 0
Thuul (F) (Regiment) 170
Thuul (F) (Regiment) 170
Thuul Mythican (F) 90

  • Bane Chant (2) 20
    Thuul (Regiment) 160
  • Helm of the Drunken Ram 15
    Naiad Centurion 115
  • Trident of the Drowned Sea [1] (Range 12", Piercing (1), Ra 3+, Units that suffer damage are Disordered) 25
    Gigas (Horde) 205
    Depth Horror Eternal 115
    Thuul (Regiment) 160
  • Brew of Strength 30
    Thuul Aquamage 90
  • Rising Tides [1] - Aura (Wild Charge (+1)) 15
  • Library Barkskin 1 25
    Depth Horror Eternal 115
    Leviathan’s Bane 95
    Leviathan’s Bane 95
    Depth Horrors (Horde) 185
  • Sir Jesse’s Boots of Striding 15
    Depth Horrors (Horde) 185
    Kyroqsh, the Hunter in the Deep [1] 140
    Leviathan’s Bane 95

Total Unit Strength: 23
Total Units: 16
Target Points: 2330
Core (Target%): 2330 (100%)

Uuu… 3 Banes! Interesting!

Wierd thing is that both elven and Trident’s bolt throwers have a special non-obligatory option that makes it more/less than a shooting engine. I would say it is a good thing as long as You do not take them only for shooting.


show me Your naiad ensnarers. I am painting minę and I wonder how other players did theirs.

I just don’t know how effective they really are. And losing tidal swarms makes me sad…

Loosing tidal swarms ? In what way?

Just my list I made I didn’t have room for them. Figuring out the perfect trident realms list feels tough


Swarms are great but not in every list.

I agree It can be tough but also this is the fun part! So many options and styles.

Few pictures for my lastest tournament.


As you can see I did take banes and Dambusters in my list. Banes are great. Not scoring but does more damage than heartpiercers and Entral.

Dambusters is a unit I would nit take in a offensive list. They are good inna shooting list as a counter punch.


Hordę is done. Now I add few missing leaves and ensnarers are ready to regen.


Finally finished my Trident King.


The Frog comes out amazing and your painting skills are fantastic. A great idea well done.

Which of the Niads is the King btw?


Thanks! I do like painting toads. They are easy ro paint with washes and drybrush and the end result is great!

Regular naiad with Ice Naiad masekd head.

That is one superb miniature. Loving the detail on the base. What’s not to love about a water feature? Is it a Frog or a toad? I’d need to see it from overhead to decide. It is a bit warty, and the legs don’t look overly long, which would indicate toad, but colour might nudge it into Frog.

I believe those are toads.
