    eltharion questions

    If Eltharion is your General, Swordmasters are no longer a 0-1 choice. What does this mean, I can't have Swordmasters in the army at all, or I have to have a swordmaster unit (its no longer a choice)?

    it means you can have as many swordmaster units as you have special slots.

    Yep, Sylvester hit the nail.
    With him in you're army you can take as many SM as you have special slots, meaning that in large games, he truly is invaluable.
    Not to mention his other special rules.

    Eltharion the blind truly rocks, IMHO he is the best HE character there is.

    hope it helps

    wait I have a question about him, since he is a swordmaster and everything doe she have the killing blow special rule?
    http://uk.games-workshop.com/highelv...-characters/6/
    because I don't see the rule and yet wouldn't it be less of a good deal for him if he doesn't have it. So yeah my question is does he have the rule or not?

    But he is undoubtably one of the better characters, I like him on Stormwing with his -4 As sword though.

    Another question, if you charge a Griffon into the rear or flank of a unit does it negate ranks, because horses count as double the Unit strength, so wouldn't the Griffon be able to negate the ranks.

    Another comment, Griffons are nowhere near as good as they used to be, they should be dropped back to 150 ppm, 200 points, pfhsssh. I'm not sure but aren't these the samecost as the Manticore and isn't it better (I havent actually looked up the points cost for a Manticore).
    Thanks:yes:

    No, Eltharion doesn't have killing blow, but i would really like that. Stormwing with Eltharion has a unit strength of 5 so they would negate ranks, but if Eltharion dies Stormwing won't negate the rank bonus.

    Eltharion has his sword styles/dances (whatever you want to call them) instead which he picks every round of combat or every combat he is in (again, rules just out of reach!).
