I only have enough for either Korhil or Caradryan so which should I get? I usually play warrior of chaos wood elves ogres empire and sometimes other high elves.
Daemonic cheese-how? Well, you would need to start with daemonic milk, i guess...
It depends on the rest of your army and what oyu need more... Caradryan is good for killing mounted characters, and his magic resistance is brilliant. Korhil's ability to make a unit stubborn gives you a very hard unit. Both have their uses.
If you have Phoenix Guard, put Korhil in them. If you have White Lions, put Caradryan in them.
Cardryan is alos very useful in that he effectively comes with the armour of protection, i.e. heavy armour + 4+ ward save. Korhil isn't quite as resilient, and Caradryan's flaming halberd is a nice magical weapon. Finally, the fact that he causes fear means that low Ld enemies will hit him on 6s most times. On teh flip side, Korhil is insnaely strong, and has a great weapon in Chayal, he can swat most enemies aside in a single round of combat. However, he doesn't benefit from the resilience of Caradryan, and resilience is something HE heroes normally have to pay through the nose for...
Korhil is great when you have a hero that can't take much damage so you can use him as a bodyguard
I see korhil as a brawler and Caradryan as a warrior. It's best to put them in there respective unit. Korhil does make a better bodyguard IMO. Cardyan has magic resistance and a ward save. Plus if he dies, his god smites down the killer.
If a Million Guardsmen die, that's a statistic. If one marine dies, that's a tragedy.
As Strewart stated, they are both useful, and actually useful in each other's units. Korhil grants stubborn to the PG and benefits from teh 4+ ward against shooting at the very least, Caradryan gets to move through woods and gains stubborn on the unit, and gives the White Lions immunity from Fear as long as he is alive.
Basically, I'd get Korhil and put him in a unit of PGs. Why? PG's make the best anvil unit, and are weaker when fielded in small units. Where do you want a big expensive hero? In a big unit. What do you gain from this? The toughest "center/anvil" unit imagineable in an HE army:
4+ ward (3+sv vs. shooting for Korhil)
Those last two are what makes it. They don't flee easily, and they can break everyone else just by ounumbering them. Simple stuff.
In big games, adding Karadryan into the list is okay, but I never really liked big units of WLs, and I think that you'd almost do better with a basic Hero with some extra gear.
This is my only problem with putting Korhil on a Phoenix Guard unit. He is weaker than them. You usually want to make your characters harder to kill than the unit they are in, so people are less tempted to target them. eg. I have two characters, one has 2+ armour and the other 4+ ward, I put the 2+ armour guyin the Pg and the ward guy in the spearmen, if I did it the other way around my opponents would just say 'the character has the same save as the unit, I will target him and kill him first'. Korhil has a worse save than PG, so people will immediately target him to get combat res and remove his attacks and stubborn ability. This will not occur in challenges, they will just focus the attacks of characters/unit champions on him. How can you stop that from happening?
Always challenge with Korhil...He should be able to win or draw most challenges, and in the event the can't he wuld probably have died anyway. if you only have to focus attacks against a single target, it makes things much easier...
I like korhil a lot more than caradryan, mostly just because he hits like a truck, can take most enemy character 1 on 1, and can make units stubborn. stick him in a unit of Spearmen, stick your hero/lord/guy that needs guarding in there, and watch the fun as that unit takes apart most everything they see. Just make sure its a huge unit of spearmen.
