The downside of frenzy is obviously that the enemy can just throw some stupid skirmisher or light cavalry unit within charge range of the khorngors, and then they have to charge them the next turn!
This can throw a battleline out of balance, or turn the khorngors, to set them up for a nasty flank attack, which is proberbly one of the few things a fully ranked khorngor unit has to fear...
But since you can declare regular charges before considering the "frenzied" charge rules, why not simple declare a regular charge against a unit that is out of range but in the right direction? The khorngors will fail their charge but move 5' in the right direction, instead of getting forced to charge the bait unit, in the wrong direction...
What say you?
that is cheating. in the GW faq covering the main rulebook, they address this, saying declaring a charge you know you cannot make is against the rules.
ditto - it's unsportsmanlike even if it wasn't in the FAQ.
That's why cheap beast herds and hounds are so important in the beast army acting as screens.
Afaik, Frenzied units are unable to declare charges like normal troops, they must wait too see if they are in range.
Also, the counter tactic is quite hard for the enemy to pull off effectively, but it provides a chance for the enemy to protect himself a little bit, so its not that unfair bearing in mind how nasty Frenzy and Khorne can be as a rule.
merry christmas deciever!
Thank you! and a Merry Christmas to you too
Thanks for the imputs... I just came onto the thought the other day and felt it would be like cheating, so I completely agree with you. I just wanted to know if it was a common tactic, because I did not think I would have been the first one to get the idea.
Frenzy has a drawback, yes. You cannot overcome it but you can mitigate it by using other units to screen your LOS to things you don't want to charge. As mentioned before, Beastherds are great for this.

The "A Smart Player Will..." theory is a complete paradox. If we make an assumption that everything we do is outsmarted, then theoretically we can never win.

The FAQ does not say that it's cheating just that it's cheap and that they would expect anyone who's playing a fair game wouldn't do it. So it's not against the rules but it is cheese, but the cheese is still usable.
