who do you think would be the best general for the army at 3000 points(taking into consideration the points cost)
oldblood on carnasaur
oldblood on foot
oldblood on coldone
scar vet on foot
scar vet on coldone
In 3Kpts, heroes are as good as useless as Generals imo.
Slann too are weak and pathetic, deriving their meagre strength from a super-overpowered unit that they must join should they survive.
That leaves Oldbloods.
On a Carnousaur, it doesn't seem very "General-ish" unless he's joining a unit or CoRs, and besides, as an Empire player, I love facing them, as do my Cannon crewmen.
That leaves us a R&F Oldblood. They have nasty combat characteristics, and can be tooled up with some cool gadgets and gizmos.
yeah I think an oldblood on a coldone is a better general as he can get where he needs to be without 5 cannons being antracted by a carnasaur generals are there for break tests the slann are only 1 better leadership and take ages to go anywhere cost more and attract so much missile fire because people think Oh look a super powerful (and expensive ) slann a large target and a general what would be better to shoot at old bloods don't get that type of attention and are almost as hard to kill
Slann make the best generals by miles
I agree with Stoney. At 3000 points you should definitely be running a Slann and an Oldblood imo. How can you say no to a 2nd Gen Slann General who can also be your BSB (Ld. 9 to boot.) He has a high T with a ton of wounds to boot and he can rain down havoc on opponents. Don't forget the 4+ min ward.
At 3000pts, i want Kroq-gar AND a Carni Oldblood....hehehehehe. Saying that for points I would say (and voted for) the mage priest. He is just way to good, sure he costs a bit, but i wouldn't mind paying more for him. That being said I don't like em. I prefer saurus, and i am building (slowly) a pretty saurus heavy list, and a kroq-gar list.
