I recently won several parts to a beastmen army at various tournaments. Enough to build the 2000, 2200, 2400 and 2500 points lists I had in mind. So being new to the beastmen I was wondering about the shard of the herdstone. I know this discussion must have taken place before but rather than searching through old posts I would like to know what the current though is on this item. I do have 2 bray shaman (3 in the 2400 and 2500 point lists) in a ungor raider unit with the shard of the herdstone. I would like to model he shard so the unit can hide behind it and make it more survivable. So probably about 4" wide and 3" tall. Is this accepted or frowned upon? Eitherway I won't change the list but I don't see a reason not to use a magic item to the fullest of it's abilities rather than just one portion of it's rules. However if it is considered bad form I will pass on that. I don't want people to feel cheated.
Well, it says any acceptable terrain piece, I personally intend to use the Cygor Boulder leftover from when I make my Ghorgon, as that not only looks the part but is quite large. I say go for it, but your opponents might have some words to say to you about it =P

I went for a 50mm x 50mm base, and 100mm tall. Big enough to hide my Shamans behind it (which in the end is what I want), but not obnoxiously huge (which helps for transportation). As for the item itself... if its effects haven't gotten comped into submission where you play, go for it. I use it, and I love the damn thing.
I will. Thanks guys!
I personally use a very smallish herdstone modeled on 40mm base, but I see no problem with something big enough for a shaman to hide behind.
