Is this combination possible? I might be wrong about certain rules or stackabilty, but I was wondering whether this would work-
Battle Standard bearer-
Virtue of Duty
From what I can work out, you get +1 to combat resolution from being a standard bearer, +1 cos he's the battle standard bearer, +1 from virtue of duty if the general is still alive, and +1 from the War Banner.
This means you get a whopping +4 to the combat resolution, near-guaranteed to send any unit fleeing.
Am I wrong about this?
+1 for being a standard bearer and bsb don't stack
A more expensive version is
Banner of the Lady
Virtue of Duty
in a unit with
+3 without counting ranks/outnumber and your opponent never counts ranks.
just take BSB with virtue of duty and warbanner, thats +3 to combat res. i ALWAYS use that combination, and taught it to a friend who plays brets and loves it to death.
It depends on what you want to do. You can't ever field extra mundane equipment on the BSB, so the great weapon, shield, and lance are out. However Vow's don't count toward magical item allowance. You can put magical equipment on him if you wanted to, but that makes your BSB just another combat character like the rest of your Hero's. I feel that you should use the fact that you get a banner of any point value and a virtue that doesn't count toward your magical point allowance on the character to the best of your ability. You have to be carefull not to go overboard of coarse, because the BSB is normally the easiest hero to take out. The banner of the Lady that I'm taking makes the BSB very expensive, and I only field it in games of 2000 or more. However the War Banner/Virtue of Duty are cheaper and produce a good effect. Most other armies don't realize this and so they normally target the unit, or the champion etc...
your right, but a magic banner is so much better than items on a bsb anyway
+Armor of Agilulf
+Sword of the Lady's champion
+Gauntlets of the Duel
+Virtue of Confidence
Let's see anything beat him in a duel.
There once was a Lord named Vlad,
Who's fighting skillz really were mad.
He killed and he maimed,
He spilled blood in Khorne's name.
And the fact that he's legal makes me glad
(special thanks to Uriel Zarium for the last line/touching it up)
I definitely prefer Twilight banner and virtue of the Impetuous Knight. I like the get around on it. If you are peaking from behind a VDT hill or through a forest or building you can sometimes get an otherwise impossible (in more ways than one) charge.
