    Your best lord

    Well i have been thinking on diffrent types of lords and how they affect your games so go on post the best lord you have used i will go first


    Dwarf lord
    Great weapon
    Shield
    Shieldbearers
    Master rune of kragg the grim
    Rune of fire
    Rune of cleaving
    Master rune of challenge
    Rune of the furnace
    2 x Rune of iron
    Rune of preservation
    Pts 299

    I know he is expensive but this set up has killed so many Treekin and Chaos lords i can't ever think of not taking him in a army (I have 4000 Pts so the cost is not that bad) i know his ward save is little to be desired but i slap him in a unit of 23 hammerers with 3 runes of sanctuary

    Members of D.W.A.R.F.S
    DEATH to WOODIES AND REALLY FREAKY SPRITES

    put it on daft's tab, recognised everywhere

    Nasty eh! I tend to avoid these types of lord since they're so many pts, I just take one with a MroSpite and some RoFury generally with a shortage of pts, and it is deadly. But otherwise I like...

    Shieldbearers, Great Weapon
    Runes of... Stone, Preservation, Kragg the Grim, Cleaving and Fire.

    It's only 241pts and he has T5, 1+ AS, is immune to killing blow and poison attacks, has flaming attacks which cleave flammable targets and has S7!

    [16:20] <@Kaiser-> I know he is.
    [16:20] <@Kaiser-> He usually is.

    Grim Fighta - your dwarf is an illegal choice as it has weapons, armour, talisman runes higher than the maximum amount....so you can't do that unfortunately. I like the idea of a

    Dwarf Lord
    Shield
    Shieldbearers
    Master Rune of Swiftness
    Master Rune of Kingship


    This means the dwarf lord always strikes first, is immune to fear and terror as well as the unit and also leads a stubborn unit. He also has a 1+ save. I used this in a 3000pt battle just recently and he was awesome in challenges...

    I like this one:

    Dwarf Lord: 293pts
    Shield Bearers
    Shield
    Master Rune of Spite
    Rune of Resistance
    Rune of Stone
    Master Rune of Swiftness
    Rune of Cleaving

    That's a 0+ rerollable armour save, with a 4+ ward save and 4 str5 attacks which strike first!!

    Best thing to give a lord - a unit of hammerers!

    I'm in love with the bloodline special rule atm, a cheap lord (Arky's for example) coupled with these guys make for a fine elite unit. At leats it's been working well for me^_^

    just a note on this dwarf lord... in the rules of the runes it states that (while using runes) a characters armour save may never be made better than a 1+. so this guy has a 1+ rerollable armour save, with a 4+ ward save and 4 str5 attacks which strike first rather than a 0+

    Master Rune of Kingship is one of the worst runes available IMHO, you achieve the same effects by putting him in with the Hammerers where he belongs, and at a huge price.

    I think Arklite's Lord would work well, but perhaps spending just a little more for a rune of fury or rune of cleaving? Perhaps both? Getting that little bit of extra offensive power might make the difference against a very elite units.
    Don't bother having anything more than meaningless small talk on this forum, the moderators won't allow it
