Any tactics for this guy? Is he worth the rather extreme point cost?
I have a 2K point game coming up against my regular O'n'G opponent, and I think he will suspect that I will bring Teclis, so I was thinking of throwing him a curveball.
The list is roughly something like this:
Korhil in Lion Chariot
Noble BSB, Battle Banner, DA, Lance, Shield
Mage, L1, 2 Scrolls
14 LSG (Mage here)
5 DPs w/ Champ (BSB here)
5 DPs w/ Champ (Tyrion here)
Fast list, reasonable shootiness.
I'm almost positive he will bring Grimgore, and I think Tyrion can stand toe to toe with him, and break his unit should I get the charge with the DPs thanks to his AS/Ward/Regen. Am I wrong in this thinking? Would I be better off to target him with Korhil on the chariot and hope for a killing bow instead?
Any other tips with using Tyrion? He doesn't show up in army lists much.
i think it would be a good list. i don't have any experience with tyrion either, but i think he will do just fine if there's any place in the army where he should be it would be with the DP's.

Tyrion is really very good. His attacks, multiple saves which are very hard to breach and his combat speed make him devestating, use him with your Dragon Princes, give them a banner of Ellyrion so that they can charge through difficult terrain and see your enemy cower in fear!
i would actually try and avoid Grimgor and take apart the rest of his army instead using teh Dragon Princes. That way you can fight the unit on your own terms (i.e. with complementary rear and flank charges) and can cause serious harm and hopefully destroy the unit without losing characters. Korhil doesn't really have the means to kill Grimgor easily - relying on the 6 to kill him is a big ask, and Korhil lacks any ward save...
I've used him twice. He was once broken by a Thane, and then by a Paladin. Both times where due to horrible luck on my part (the second time by the Bretonnian player misunderstanding some rules, and me not knowing any better).
The guy is a monster though, as long as you have better luck then I do at least.

hard to kill, but not necessarily a monster. He still only has 4 attacks. If I had a dollar for every time I missed to hit and wound with a high elf prince (3's and 2's everytime) then I would be able to build an entirely new army with the sum I had amassed.
Remember that goblins fear elves unless they outnumber them 2:1, that will help you more than tyrion.
The problem is that any goblin player who knew his army would easily be able to kill half your army by turn2. Redirect your charging units so that your characters are unable to attack and then overwhelm you.
O&G usually outnumber us 3:1, your army list is designed to get them 5:1 odds. Its hard to overcome 5-6 combat res points every combat, especially when you're not charging when you want and are getting hit on the flank.

Well, I'll have to reply back with results another time. My wife had an early labour, and my son came along a month before expected
No WHFB for a few months for me.
Congrats on the baby! Hope mother and child are doing well...
