I'd like to play an oldblood/carnosaur list, but I'm worried it will get shot to smithereens due to the sheer volume of shots that can be fired now. I think the best build I can give it is hand weapon, shield, armor of destiny, and the obsidian amulet with 20 flex points of magic items (thinking burning blade for -2 AS, flaming attacks).
This gives him a 1+ armor save, 4+ ward save (2+ from magic), and the carnosaur gets a his 4+ scaly skin and a 5+ ward from magic.
I think this makes him hard as nails, but is there something better that people have been using?
Oh, and if a model has a halbred/great weapon/extra hand weapon, can a shield still be used as protection vs ranged fire?
Well, I would consider the trinket that allows you to reroll failed armor saves.
Gleaming pendant mby... 20 points me thinks
That's also an interesting option.
1+ armor save with rerolls and a 4+ ward on the hero, 4+ scaly skin on the carnosaur
1+ armor save, 4+ ward save 2+ ward on magic for hero, 4+ scaly skin save 5+ anti-magic ward on carnosaur.
I think the anti-magic is better both in CC and for getting across the board. It's so hard to hurt the oldblood already that the rerolled save makes little difference for him (it takes 10 S4 hits to do a single wound on the oldblood 50% of the time without rerolls, 25 S4 hits to do a single wound on the oldblood 50% of the time with rerolls - 4 vs 8 at S5 and 2 vs 3 at S6) but the carnosaur benefits enormously vs magical attacks (which are most likely to be the ones actually causing wounds in either CC or shooting due to heroes and spells - high strength warmachines we are still done for), especially since the carnosaur is the much more vulnerable part of the model. Plus any high strength magical attacks will be much less likely to go through on either model.
