Hey. I have been thinking of going with a prince on a griffin (dont ask about dragons) but now I am having trouble in deciding what to give him. I know its going to be CC oriented because thats what the griffin does best and I was wondering is the blade of leaping gold a good choice w/armor of protection or hof and something else. But would it be better to place my prince with a unit of either white lions or dragon princes instead by himself on a monsterous creature?

Depending on who you are playing against, took Blade of leaping gold a few times and if I hit and wounded seldom got through armour. However had atrocious luck and fought mostly chaos and bretonians.
I have always been tempted by using a lioncloak on a monster, nice to be stubborn then who cares about ranks and combat resolution, lots of points though.
Perhaps only bonus about IaC is that at least your griffon rider won't necessarily be the general as well and can flap around a little bit without feeling like you're wasting his leadership. Then your other less flash general can join your only special White Lions.
Haven't ever taken a griffon but without an armour save it seems that some protection from shooting is needed even in 1 turn S3 shooting could give it a run for its money, being a large target.
So Here goes:
Helm of fortune, Sacred Incense, Lion Gaurd, Lance, Heavy Armour and Shield
If there is a cunning anti shooting plan Drop SI and replace with Guardian Phoenix
Hope this helps as I said never used Griffon before so would like to know what you decide and how it goes.
Allonairre makes some good points

Or if you wanted another magic character with fair CC ability you could do this:
Radiant Gem of Hoeth
He is just like a level 2 wizard that wears armor and is good in combat.Just take it into consideration
