Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey everybody im new to these boards and my friend directed me to them Rocket Roll Rebel but anyways hi and down to the real reason im makeing this post. I have been reading the post around here aabout the OK tactics and im getting more and more into fantasy, but i have played before i just havent found an army i liked until i played the OK. So what are some good things to give to your commanders if in like weapons armor aor banners????? ill be waiting for your posts
depends on what you're running. How big is your army? Do you have an army book?
Generally I play 2250pts
This gets me a Tyrant - tenderizer is a nasty weapon, but I can also go for a cathayan longsword or sword of might at times, so I can spend more on big names or magic items.
OK don't really have much armor (HA at best and maybe an addition like the greedy fist)
i like the spangleshard because I run my units small and I don't like to eat cannonballs.
I take 3 butchers with the halfling cookbook and bangstick and skullmantle. Maybe a scroll if I'm facing some power magic.
Yeah, the Spangleshard is good against High Strength attacks. Against low strength attacks your chance of beating the to wound roll diminishes greatly.
The Sword of Striking as well as the Sword of Might are both nice options. I knew a guy who always used the Sword of Striking and being hit on either 2's or 3's by a Str 5 Ogre isn't a lot of fun.
But the Tenderizer is just plain old nasty.
As for Banners, what's the one that spits a spell onto a nearby unit? Keep some Gnoblars nearby, and that's pretty effective. Gnoblars take the hit and use the general's leadership not to panic.
I like the bignames kineater to reroll panic tests. I've lost entire games in two rounds due to failed panic checks. I also like the +1 to toughness bigname, but that means risking stupidity. That +1 to toughness, though, can mean a lot for keeping your big guy alive since he has hardly any armor.
thanks for the profile comment david!. Yes i have an army book and i have been going over it i have been looking to start like a 1000pts for now because i have no orges atm so im just planning out my army and needed some advice on what to give and what not to give my orges so thanks for the input guys its much appericiated when i think of some more questions ill be posting them thanks
depending on the armies you are facing here is what I use.
Tyrant (used in any scenario)
Brace of Handguns
Fistful of Laurels
I also run 2 different bruisers, the first one is to go up against my main opponent (dwarfs)
Brace of Handguns
when it comes to butchers if they dont have a skullmantle or bangstick, I just stick them with dispel scrolls.
For magic standards I tend to stick with the Runemaw like david suggested, or the Ragbanner if I'm really worried about panic checks.
"I am the architect of fate!"
It depends on the army your fighting also. If I'm fighting dwarfs I usully take the Thundermace with my Tyrant to offset the armor some of those shorties have. Its pretty impressive when you hit for one shot and take out 10 of his ironbreakers.
well right now for our campaign we have 2 TK players 2Dwarf players 2 Bretonian Players and then some others but the good players are the 2 Bret players and the 1 TK player so those are the armys I would be faceing. I should have a 1k army by next week glued so i can start playing them hopefully but thanks for the tips guys and dont worry ill have more 's for you Vet OK players shortly
LOL!!! sorry guys that was me that posted under my roomates name i didnt know he was logged in but yea thats my post above
