Which Stegadon do you all use? Since Engine of the Gods is so different I think we should keep this between the standard special and rare stegadon choices. what I want to know is which one do you guys take and why?
My opinion is that the thunderstomp rules have pushed the ancient stegadon with is str 6 to the frontrunner...too bad I own none but 3 normal stegs.
what's your opinion?
Thunderstomp at S5 is still pretty good against lots of infantry, so I wouldn't be too concerned about that.
For me, the two Stegs have similar enough stats that it becomes the weaponry that decides it for me - I prefer the giant bow.
I tend to go with the reg steg. Its 40 pts less and I love love love the giant bow! It is so handy to have around just in case or to shoot large things like dragons down! I know you give up the one point of strength But u do gain and extra attack. Both are fantastic options and look great on a battlefield!so there's no bad choice here !
Since the blowpipes are 12" and I will be wanting to charge most often in that range the giant bow wins the weapons comparison for me, but a total of 2d6+4 (army book isn't on me but i htink that's right) total str 6 attacks on the charge and an increased armor save makes the ancient even more incredible in combat. It is a decicion I just can't seem to make my mind up about, heh.
Either way, I think that I will be moving this unit as marching frequently enough that the weapons won't get much action.
I am in the group that goes with the regular steg. Cheaper, better weapon, and an extra attack.
For a character mount, it is always the ancient.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
I think the Ancient Steg is too good to pass up as a character mount. The benefits you get w/ the Ancient are well worth the extra 40pts. I don't think it's worth it to run an Ancient not as a mount if you can find a better place to spend that 40pts.
I believe you all have convinced me. All those str 6 attacks are amazing, but I think the better weapon is a huge factor.
