As it is, I've been playing WHFB for about 2 years now, and I'm beginning to wonder what else I can do to add some flavour to my force, gaming-wise, conversion-wise, and even fluff-wise. So, here I was, reading one of my older White Dwarfs, when I had an idea.
Why not use Kislev troops? If no miniatures are available anymore, I could simply convert my own. And if the models are still available, they look great.
So, my question is, has anyone actually used them with any success? Are they fun to use whilst still being able to be competitive? And, how would you convert them into your own troops?
Ah the kislevites. Good news, the models still exist. bad news, they are no longer uk tourney legal (ok... bad news for me then).
I myself own a 500-point kislevite detachment for my dwarves and I must say that they are incredibly effective. Between some of the cheapest fast cavalry (ungol horse archers) to some of the most dramatic cavalry units (griffon legion) the kislevites are a swift and dynamic force.
The real gem to them however is the glorious charge. causing panic on the charge is a huge advantage when you look at the possibilities. for example: if the enemy fail the test they break and if they can't escape your 16" charge you have just run them down!
While not the best rule against high leadership enemies you can surely see the potential against the low to average leadership troops of skaven, orcs and goblins and even other humans.
On top of that however you get solid and dependable medium/heavy cavalry who can fight the best and come out respectably. Being faster than most other races while still sporting high strength hitting power is always nice after all ^_^

[16:19] <@Alzer> Arky's right though
[16:20] <@Kaiser-> I know he is.
[16:20] <@Kaiser-> He usually is.
[16:20] <@Kaiser-> Sometimes it's intentional.
[00:01] <+zubus> i love you, ya skirt wearin nothern monkey! ^_^
One problem is that they no longer4 cause panic in the opposing troops, as they got rid of the flank-charge-panic rule.
But, hey, I guess it comes down to how sporting my opponents are on this.
Thanks for the help Arky! Have a :drinking: on me.
