So how does this list work? Well you'll notice the obvious inclusion of the Blackhide Wrastler for heavy hitting and the Bull Snapper for Spiny Growth. These are both great models to own because they look great and also fit into every gator list you'll make. The best part about them with Maelok is that he can potentially mitigate the 'pillow-fisted' nature of the Wrastler if Maelok gets close enough to a target to affect them with Malediction. While it might seem like a bad idea to throw Maelok up close, with the Horror's animus he can threaten 10" away, reave fury from warbeasts (gaining him some transfers), gain some souls, and he can sit on up to ARM 23 (Spiny Growth, Death Pact, feat).
In the meantime, you have two full Gatorman Posse's to give your opponent some major headaches. Most turns you'll want to upkeep Death Pact on one of the units to give them a helpful boost to their ARM and the other unit will usually be Zombified from the Witch Doctor to give them Tough (as if Gatormen weren't already annoying). Come time for your feat turn and suddenly not only do you have 10 solid hitters which become Incorporeal to reach deep into the opponent's backfield, but both units will benefit from the +2 ARM for that round, making them even more obnoxious for your opponent to dislodge.
