Hey all,i am relatively new to the forums and i have wanted to convert a griffion with a prince.Now what i want to know is if the points for the griffion worth it or just dont use it.Thanks for the interest.
thats a good point also there is no modle for it if it was any good in the game then they would have made a modle for it
From what I gather, griffons aren't used all that much. I suppose this is partly due to the fact that there isn't a Lord on Griffon model in the current HE range, but also most players don't consider it to be a very good choice anyway. The general consensus is that if you're going to spend a lot of points on a mount, make it a dragon since it doesn't cost a huge amount more (the difference is worth about one small unit of archers or a bolt thrower etc.) and the dragon has a better statline, a breath weapon and a decent armour save while the griffon has no armour at all. This makes it quite vulnerable and most opponents will know that.
Thou shalt remember:
Warhammer Fantasy armies do NOT have Codices. They have Army Books.

I think the problem as stated is more with the gameplay not with the lack of models. there is no armor save (they should give it a ward save or something) and it's only toughness 5 and 4 wounds - this means that your prince could be footslogging by turn 2. Unless you're playing guys who don't shoot at large targets or with tons of terrain - the griffon will die.
As for models, there are tons of great griffon models made by GW and reaper.
Even if griffons were half-decent mounts, i would never use them. They always seemed like the Empire's signature Lord mount. I think we should have a pegasus instead; fast, light, and not too much more expensive than the freindly neighborhood elf bred horse. Anyways, for that points, just get your lord a horse and some silver helms or dragon princes to back him up. More wounds, more offensive, as good if not better armor. The only down side is that you can only move a max of 18" when compared to 20 flat, and the fact if causes fear(or is it terror?)
Tyranids 1850 - 10/0/0 Models sold off, but I still sometimes play with proxies.
High Elves 2000 - 0/1/1 Starting, don't have any models.
