    Skavenpelt banner

    Has anybody ever used the skavenpelt banner in an army?

    I'm trying to find the best way to use the banner so it's worth it.

    It can only be given to a skink chief so he can't take any magic items if he takes the banner. Do you put him on a (Ancient) Stegadon or just in a unit.

    Putting the chief in a unit of skinks with kroxigors would give the kroxigors extra attacks but he will be really vulnerable.

    Putting him on a steg on his own sounds like a waste of points (even if the crew and the steg gain 1 attack each)

    Putting him on a ancient steg and joining a unit of 8 cold one riders would make a unit 6 wide, 2 ranks with the cold ones and their riders each gaining 1 attack + 1 attack for the steg and it's crew. Giving the Huanchi's blessed totem to the cold one riders would be nuts. It looks good on paper but costs so much to make a 25 point banner usefull.

    Putting the same chief with banner on a steg in a unit of saurus could be nice.

    Any input welcome.

    Its pretty difficult to use effectively. The cold one unit idea sounds pretty good though, but for 700 points that unit needs to make a big impact on the game. A single ancient stegadon with the warspear would probably be just as effective.
    Putting it in a unit of foot saurus makes it very vulnerable, as it may have to charge out on its own due to frenzy.

    I have never used it personally, but I like the idea of putting it in a block of spear saurus. They usually aren't in a position to make a charge anyway and the extra attacks would be brutal in two ranks. Plus you could always screen your unit with some skirmishers to make sure the chief stays put. Also having a unit champion would be a useful scapegoat if the skink is ever going to get challenged.
