    2K Friendly - seeking advice

    Hello All,

    Well I have decided to start up a Beasts Army and am not waiting for the new figures - but I need some advice - Here is the list - I will be playing against HE, Orcs, Wood elves mostly.

    Beastlord - Axes of Khorgor, Crown of Horns, Hvy Arm, Shield - 199
    BSB - Hvy Armour, Sword of Might, Pelt of Dark Young, Mark of Khorne - 169
    Shaman Lvl 2 - Braystaff, 2 X Dispel - Lore of Beasts - 166
    Shaman Lvl 2 - Braystaff, Chaos Armour - Lore of Beasts - - 126

    20 Beast Herd (8/12) FC - Lord Here - 139
    20 Beast Herd (8/12) FC - Shaman #2 here - 139
    10 Beast Herd (5/5) Foe Render and Music - 80 in Ambush
    10 Beast Herd (5/5) Foe Render and Music - 80 in Ambush
    17 Bestigors (FC) Mark of Khorne - BSB Here - 279
    2 Chariots
    6 Centigors (FC) - 149
    6 Centigor (FC) - 149
    4 X 5 Warhounds - 120

    Total 1965 - therefore add Warbanner to Bestigors.

    PD 2+2+2
    DD 2+1+1+1+1+2XDispell

    My Question is - The Bestigor should I do away with them and get another Chariot - providing 3 Chariots for a scary centre, then add a 20 Beastherd with the BSB in Ambush?

    Also the Banner Preyseeker - it appears only the BSB or a bestigor Unit (which cannot benefit from it anyway) could have it - can a Beastherd use it at all ?

    Thoughts, Comments

    Thanks in advance

    Just a little hint, remember that Herds need atleast 25% models in charge range for a legal charge, dropping one ungor from each large unit will drop that number needed from 6 to 5. Additionally however it will also drop the no. kills needed for a panic check from 6 to 5, so.. up to you really.

    Looks ok overall. From experiance, Bestigor arent great. If you are going to run the, then ''elite'' units are best, 6x2 with Champ and Music. No heroes etc in.

    Centigor, id say drop their Standards, and maybe Champ too (+1 attack is expensive consiering they are a light unit)

    Consider some Spawns maybe. In a BoC army, unbreakable can be a fantastic support ability

    Thanks for the response - it does seem that Bestigors are not as popular as Minotaurs - why is that by the way?

    Here is a new list with some changes,

    Beastlord - Axes of Khorgor, Crown of Horns, Hvy Armour, Shield - 199
    BSB - Hvy Armour, Sword of Might, Pelt of Dark Young - 134
    Shaman - Lvl 2 - 2 X Dispel

    Beastherd (8/12) FC - 139 - Beastlord here
    Beastherd (8/12) FC - 139 - BSB,Shaman here
    Beastherd (5/5) Foe Render/Music - 80
    Beastherd (5/5) Foe Render/Music - 80
    Beastherd (5/5) Foe Render/Music - 80
    2 Chariots - Mark of Khorne - 260
    4 Minotaurs w/ GW - 184
    6 Centigors (Music) - 121
    6 Centigors (Music) - 121
    4 X 5 Warhounds
    2 Khorne Bloodbeasts (Chaos Spawn) - 150

    Total - 1973 - should I add a Standard to the Minos?

    PD 2+2
    DD 2+1+1+1+2Dispel
