I dont play blindwater but do include a Posse and Witchdoctor in my Circle lists, in essence they're the best medium inf in the game just make sure that you dont engage anything above Arm17 as they struggle. From a faction PoV it depends on the leader if you want unless you're playing Calaban you want two Posse's

maelok seem to benefit a LOT from multiple gatormen posses.
Turn all of them undead+tough with witchdoctors and his armourbuff and make them hopeless to deal with, and those the enemy kills you can revive.
Add a bull snapper or 2 for spiny growths for arm24 gators on the feat

A boostable gun is never wrong, and a backfield heavy that contributes is good for both fury battery and transfer target. Id totally consider playing him, he is a poor mans Ravagore but seem fair at 8 pts
Not sure where I would play him though, Rask seem the most suitable because Fury takes him to a competent melee beast, Calaban does kind of the same with Parasite but its harder to apply

Not 100 sure on the squid. That one + a Wrastler + Rask will send your PS20 heavy quite a long ways (boundless+fury+elasticity). I would personally go for 3 posse @50 with Rask though, but thats me as a Legion player

god thats cool i wish i had the money for those, as it stands i think im going to get water effect and use that on my bases. this is what i think im going to do for my 35 point list with maelock tier list

Maelock
-Wrastler 3pts
- Bull snapper 3pts

5 gator posse 9pts
5 gator posse 9pts

witchdoctor 2pts
witchdoctor 2pts

28pts

dont know how to spend the other 7 pts because every big warbeast costs at least 8 i really feel like this list needs another heavy warbeast in it but i dont know how to fit one.

Not sure its worth playing him in his themeforce, it rarely is. There are a few money ones like midas, vaul2 and so on, but most of them "cost" more then they "give".
If you ditch the themeforce it opens up for some solos, so thats what I would add up to 35, maybe another Bullsnapper and just 1 2pts solo, not sure...


If youre staying in theme I dunno, a Bone Swarm and another Bullsnapper I guess?. Try and ninjafeed the swarm till he is full by killing shit on the outskirts/jamming stuff/similar I guess? at PS15 arm18 he is a damn tough customer for 4 pts
