I am currently putting together 30 extra Men at Arms to supplement my existing 50 in order to give me two units of 40 each, run as a horde (10x4).
I intend to back this up with my BSB on a pony with the Virtue of Empathy and the Icon of Discipline.
This way, he can be a foot away from either M@A unit and confer Ld9 to each of them. This is all only 99 points as well.
I'm also considering running a Level 4 Beast Mage nearby for the amazing buff spells, particularly Impenetrable Pelt which if cast at the boosted value, if the nova hits the BSB on his pony, the value is decreased by one, and could possibly make 80 foot soldiers toughness 6.
This also frees up my Lord (and all the other knights) from his baby sitting duty of the peasants to rush around with the lances.
Particularly, I'm considering a Lord on a Hippogryph with the armor of Midsummer Sun. With a lucky failed fear check, every enemy would need 6s to hit both the monster and the Lord. Not to mention the extended Ld 9 for the lances I plan to run, just in case.
What do you guys think?
That combination sounds extremely nice, solving some issues i wasnt able to solve myself (like justifying a gryph)
I would consider where to leave the BSB and his pony, for without a wardsave he should be inside a unit of the same type for the LoS roll. Perhaps having it on foot within one of the 40 men units isnt bad.. he can even hop out to the other M@A or a bowmen unit nearby.
I think it's hard to make both a gryphrider AND a lvl 4 Damsel within 2500 points. How many points are you thinking of?
Warchief Diggah o da Bloodmoon Squiggahs
Woops. You are right.
In the theoretical build I've got on my spreadsheet, my damsel is a level 3 with the Chalice.
The Lord has the Midsummer Armor, Sword of Might, The Mantel and a Potion of Foolhardiness for funsies.
This is for 2500 points.
