    chariots of khorne on herald or juggernaut w/unit?

    I am starting to get into the melee side of things (got bored magicking and shooting) so i looked into khorne chariots - it looks pretty good but is it better than a herald on a juggernaut inside a unit? It might be expensive letting the chariot ride out in the open - one str 7 shot kills the whole unit.. Anyone had any luck with chariots? I am thinking maybe have all melee army with 1 BT, 2 heralds on juggernaut and skulltaker on chariot... is this too many points for characters or it is better with 1 BT + 2 heralds on jugger or just 3 heralds and skulltaker - 2 on jugger 2 on chariots?

    The same spelling glitch on two web forums...?

    "chariots of khorne on herald or juggernaut w/unit?"

    Copy and paste is not your friend

    I think the juggernaut option is all round better. Not only does he become a rock-hard character, he also boosts up the bloodletters who, despite their S5, are a fairly average core unit.

    The chariot looks nasty, but is severely at risk of being a paper tiger against so many opponents (even those that are just plain faster than the chariot).

    hehe

    Yeah i think juggernaut might be better overall. . Side question - is 3 bloodcrusher better than 6 hounds? same points but not sure if the 70 point on w2 3+/5+ is good investment...

    A Jugger grants the rider +3 to armour save due to the fact that a Jugger is a Brass Behemoth.

    I think a Herald on a Jugger is way better then a chariot. First it can not really be instant killed by Str 7 weapons. It has 2 wounds. Also if you give your HoK the deamonic gifts of "Armour of Khorne" it gives him +3 more to his SV. And I always through in "Daemonic Robes" too (can never be wounded on better than a 3+).

    So a mounted HoK will has a 0+ save, with 2 wounds, can not be wounded with better than a 3+, with a movement of 7. And he only costs 170.

    I also field him in a unit of Bloodcrusher, that way it protect him from some of the shooting that might come his way.

    They don't. They have a 4+ save, which no doubt prompted your question.

    (a 4+ save being 3 'points' of armour, or +3 to an existing save)

    S7 being able to destroy chariots, IMO, should not be paramount to your choice.

    Sit and think, what can/is S7 or higher?

    -Characters with great weapons
    -Dwarf bolt throwers with a rune
    -Cannons (empire, dwarf, steam)
    -Center hole of stone throwers.

    Sorry if I missed anything.

    Now a further look.

    Characters- take a Vampire or a Black Orc Warboss with a great weapon. Sure he can destroy a chariot with a wound but most likely he's gonna have a bunch of attacks. Your Jug's armor save is going to be nil.

    Artillary- Most of the artillary causes D3 or D6 wounds. A D3 needs a 3+ to kill a Jug and D6 needs a 2+ AND the can go through the ranks!!! If I was playing against them I'd love to have those odds.

    My choice comes down to speed, hitting power and agility. Also, the most important, personal preference.

    I'd take Skulltaker on a chariot. It makes him much harder to hit and you have impact hits and a Jug.

    I run a Herald on a Jugger with Obsidian Armor. 0+ save, Heraldy goodness, locus, and magic weapons don't work on him. He'll either run with Bloodletters or crushers to make the most of locus. Plus the model is terrifying and awesome.
