    Well according to the new faq larger models in units substitute for the same amount of ordinary sized models...so the relique is to models wide by 3 models deep. So three battle pilgrims on either side of the relique sounds reasonable to make a rank.

    question

    Is this a unit that is worth using? I have been giving it some thought as it is such a unigue one. Have you used it and what were the results?

    Hey, I'm not so sure anymore...reading back over the FAQ it only specifies the ruling for characters with a larger base size...one could only hope that it could be applied to other models as well though.

    I guess people have just applied common sense when using it, sinse its unit strength 6 and has about 6 models on it.

    I'm gonna give it a try and run it six wide anyway, I need a unit that can hold up for at least a turn.

    The best way to use the Reliquae is with the Reliquae and 3 other pilgrims per rank (in other words, five wide).

    The reason for five wide is that it gives you the most scoring ranks for your investment. Six wide should be avoided, as the exta pilgrim (with 1 attack at ws 2) is unlikely to result in an extra kill. However, against some of the game's heavy hitters (cavalry, chaos warriors) the extra pilgrim may allow an additional enemy warrior to attack, resulting in an unnecessary casualty. The unit is also more difficult to maneuver and obviously increases your investment per rank.. In almost all cases five wide is the better option.

    Good point, the main problem for me is that it doesn't look symmetrical, I'll have to see if I can manage.

    i thought the new faq said that a different size base in a unit = the nuber of bases it displaces. How many does it displace again, in a horizontal sense? because if its 2 models, then you would need three more pilgrims per rank.
    You?! No!
