It's berserk, with an S, not a Z.

Berzerk is an old video game from the 80's. Berserk is:1. violently or destructively frenzied; wild; crazed; deranged: He suddenly went berserk.
The dictionary on your computer is wrong.

Nice work Gothmog, like some and not others, by the way Draugluin is correct Bezerk is spelt berserk, trust me. Love the rules given the goblins, however I think Resilience 3 for the warg marauder is too high, should be 2 in my opinion, not sure about Ashrak's special ability, death touch, maybe something cool towards spiders like boosting there defence or something, I don't know, also not sure if the watcher in the water would be worth 350 points, not sure, anyway just a little input what u think?

I especially like Gandalf's Cart. Ashrak should be given 2R, otherwise his rule would never actually do anything unless he loses a duel against a shaman.

I would also change the Hunter rule to D3, not D6.

Well thank you. I will change the spelling.

@NLJT The reason I gave the Marauder Resistance 3 is because they have 3 wounds in SBG and there are 3 riders and one mount rather than one rider and one mount. Ashrak's deaths touch is also based on the SBG rule, and the main reason is to stop ES heroes from dueling him, because if they do, they will get killed as well, but i will think on that one, because II kind of think you're right. The Watcher is an Extremely Hard to Kill Monster, and it can AtD and Ambush so any less than 300 would be too low. Thanks for your input. As I said I will think on it, especially Ashrak, though I like the fact ES heroes should avoid it..

@Draugluin, thanks about Gandalf's Cart, I though it needed a rule, hmm, Ashrak does look squishy, I just wanted him to be cheaper than Druzhag, hence low resistance, but I will alter that. And the Hunter might be a little too poweful inflicying D6 hits, I will change that too, Thanks.

Thinking about it, yeah I like that as well, to avoid he duels, but maybe up his value and give him another special rule to do something to spiders, what u think?
With the marauder I think it should be 40 points then, with prowlers Ex riders terror and double attacks, I would always take these and never take spiders

Thanks, well I have an idea for what to do with Ashrak relating to Spiders, just wait and see.

I will increase the Marauders, although whne you think about it, Bats are also the same pts, but marauders are not GW problem, I will change that thanks.

I've now added the Spider rule, its at the bottom of Ashrak, I've increaded the Marauders. And yes, but MM needs no more help really, the Blackshields cost the same as normal goblins so realistically, if GW made this profile, it wouldn't surprise me if they costed 30pts or even 25, or 55 or 60.

Hmm, the Great Beast, well from its SBG profile, I would say no it also needs to be a lower pt monster to encourafe its use and so that it wouldn't shrink the army's size too much, I also think should be easier to kill than a Mumak.

I've never used bats, they are weak. However, Blackmist has used them in GT tournament, though only as part of an overpowered Gothmog-Mumak combo.

Ashrak increases the power of Spiders in SBG, they strike first, so defence isn't too much of a problem if used well, and this way they can completely decimate enemy formations before striking back. killing 2 birds with one stone I think.

Well I have to say I agree with you, well said. You have me all excited, I would love to play these new pieces.
Just one more - Groblug - do u think epic rage, rampage,strike and cowardice is too much for 75 points? Maybe 110 with resilience 3?

Hmm, well, he only has 3 might, so he couldn't actually use all of them, but he does have a lot of choice. He isn't as goog as Gothmog, but I will have a little think about Groblug, and will be back in a minute or two.

Hmm, yes, with some though, i decided he's far lwws powerful than Druzhag anyway, and his rules suit MM, so I will leave him. Thanks.

Anything about any of the other profiles?

Yeah like everything else, looks good. Like the dweller, how he can un-wound himself, the only one I done like is the watcher in the water, but also not sure what you could do to change it. Hmmmmm.
