I play orcs & goblins and am in the process of making a purchase list for an empire army.
I want to know how to use frenzied infantry blocks. I've hear they're easily baited, and I have zero savage orcs in my greenskin horde exactly for that reason.
I'm debating whether If I should get some flagellants for the empire army, and if so what their use is and how to play with them (since they are frenzied and actually don't lose it no matter what).
This question obviously applies to other troops that would get frenzy.
For now I get an extra attack, I'm immune to psychology and I can hold up big terror-generating monsters by having superior numbers and lack of getting scared.
Thanks for all the help you can bring!
[Note: I am also wondering if frenzied, savage orcs are "easy to control"--as much as an orc horde is controllable.]

Sounds more like Empire tactica than rules help! You have some incorrect rules for Flagellants there; make sure to get an up to date copy of the Empire Army Book and write up the army list before buying any models.
They are unbreakable, and the unending frenzy makes them immune to psychology. Which means that terror or fear does not affect them, and losing in combat is no matter to them...
My actual "fear" with using them is to have them baited on hours on end because of the frenzy-must-charge rule.
Hmm, yes, edit the incorrect information out of the original post and portray me as not knowing what I'm talking about =P. Very classy way to respond to people who try to help!
Anyway, I wouldn't worry too much about people 'baiting' a unit with a big bad move of 4. That's more of a concern for Frenzied Cavalry. Anybody with the maneuverability to bait you can also just walk right around you. I can see someone doing it as like, an endgame move to try to draw you out of a table quarter or something, but it'd be pretty rare and specialised.
Moved to the Empire forum.
Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.Originally Posted by amishcellphone
