Welcome to Librarium Online!
I was looking at our magic banners and find them all very nice. In my army with the oldblood on carnosaur as general, an Engine of the gods, a scroll caddy, a unit of saurus, a unit of skinks with kroxigors, 2 sets of bare skirmishers, 2 small units of CR Riders, and a unit of terradon riders, I'm looking to fill up my remaining points with either a Skink Chief made into a Battle Standard Bearer or maybe a magic banner on one of my Rider units. Unfortunately, I like them all too much to choose! I was just wondering, what is reccomended? I added the description of my list so that anyone who has any ideas could maybe see that and get a feel for what I would be looking for.
Thanks in advance.
Stick the oldblood in a unit of cold one riders, give them huanchi's blessed totem. Will help you get the jump on on other cavalry and increases your charge range. I can think of little that would stand up to this lots charge.
Dont recommend skink bsb. They just die too easily.
The stupidity banner's not bad if you're going light magic. Huanchi's Totem is okay, but if the enemy knows you have it, then he'll usually compensate for it and you've always got the chance of rolling a 1 anyway. Other than those 2 and the warbanner, the other banners are less than inspiring in my opinion.
What's worse than getting charged by a Stegadon carrying a skink chief? A frenzied stegadon carrying a bunch of frenzied skinks.
Skaven Pelt Banner, effectively doubles the amount of attacks from the skink crew and gives an ancient steggie the same amount of A as a regular steggie..
