i was wondering if anyone has had the idea of using hero level characters with bodyguards in an AOD. this would be a LMS AoD against units of soldiers. have a total of 16 groups that would fight through different races and soldier types.
you would be allowed monster mounts but the max points of your total group would be 200 points.
i was thinking of doing this in an AoD, but i wanted your idea's on this proposal...
I'd say make a few builds, and playtest them. I can see a few things emerging already, like Break Tests (how the goblins will end up winning the majority of combats due to CRes).
The purpose of playtesting games is to see if any imbalances occur, to point out flaws in the rules etc. It can be a painful process, as the rules certainly do get tiring after playing 28 games with them.
How about 500 points? 250 on a character and 250 on the unit?
good point...250 points...the unit is only going to be 4 or 5 big and will be single core, special, rare model from the same book as the character leading them.
only 1 rare/special model
must use 1 hero/lord model
only 5 total models including the hero/lord
must have at least 2 extra models
the units will be of single characters...a sample build would be:
Bogrod the Bloody - 139 points
Black orc big boss
Ulag's Akrit Axe
Black orc - 34 points
Orc Big 'Un - 26 points
Orc Boy - 17 points
Savage Orc boy - 25 points
total 241 points
I like it although chances are there will be some character only builds. Maybe have it so its something like:
300 points total
200 points max for character(if you can afford a lord, why not)
MUST TAKE A CHARACTER!
Just another possible idea.
Going by how you have it now, i have a pretty hard build lol.

you may not have a character only build, i have changed that. it is still 250 points because some armies do not have enough models for that amount of points.
it will be a PvP arena. i will set it out as you number your characters 1-5
1 will fight 1
2 will fight 2
if one player has more bodyguard units then the other the spares can direct their attacks against any opposing model.
i believe my orc build just there is not bad acctually...
Some races have some poor core troops, compared to others, and if you leave it at 5 models max they will come off worse.
