I haven't got my BRB with me so could someone please remind me whether a mounted character can take a halberd or not? Need to know for an army list I'm trying to finish for a battle I'm having pretty much as soon as I get home from work.
I'm sure it's down in the BRB as an infantry only weapon but then I've been sure about something like this before and been wrong.
Yes he can, and he gets +1 strength bonus for using a halberd without any of the penalties of using a GW. So the only reason for a mounted character to take a GW over a halberd is if he expects his mount to die at some point
Thanks for that
It's for a HE Noble on an Elven steed in a unit of Dragon Princes, so mount dying isn't an issue.
I'm a bit short on points so I need the 4pts difference between the GW and a halberd.
The halberd is better for mounted troops, though you could go for a sword of might and get the benefit from a shield (even an enchanted shield) - I would drop 1 spear elf to get these onto my noble...
If it's mounted, why not go with a Lance? Better strength bonus on the charge, and you can use a shield.
He might get the extra strength from the lance but if the enemy holds he is bk dwn to strength 4 just using his hand weapon.
I like the halberd idea and have used it before myself and that has helped my noble take down a chaos hero....
Im always 2 steps a head and one step behind you!
Your mind is a maze and only you have the map. (I lost mine years ago.)
Just an opinion on tactics here, but if your heavy cav doesn't break the enemy on the charge, you are kinda boned anyhow.
I still think you take the Lance and charge where you know you will win.
