Just curious as to how many people use a griffon mounted character and how do you kit him out?

The "A Smart Player Will..." theory is a complete paradox. If we make an assumption that everything we do is outsmarted, then theoretically we can never win.
If you're fielding a griffon, then I'd say you're more or less relying on offense, so why not just a Runefang, full plate armour and a shield?

Ive used a griffon once and until the rules change the griffon will sit on my shelf gathering dust to be honest. I do not think the elector count and griffon combo have enough of a punch to justify using them. There are just better lord choices out there that compliment an empire army.
Actually I have to respectfully disagree. In my rather static army, I found the additional punch and flexibility of the griffon really great. My build goes as follows:
Sword of Power
Although I have been playing with the following 2 idea's:
Swapping the Enchanted Shield for the Sigil of Sigmar
OR Swapping the Holy Relic and the Enchanted Shield for the Shroud of Magnus
Steam tank, Luthor Huss, Griffon. all worth it if you can bear to cut enough points for them. fear can be a huge asset to an empire army in the right game.
I've found its worth the dead weight against chaos and vampire armies, in exchage for the amazing power of auto-break aginst lizard men, and anything with stubborn.
The griffon is the biggest liability of the three, in the vampire count situation, and it's easy to make an argument that its not worth the points, but its hard to put a price on fear, and flying in one unit.
Plus I think that model looks great on the battle feild. If you agree, than I can say it's good enough to use without feeling bad about it.
