So the last few games I've played, I've brought a unit of two rhinox riders and have found them to be extremely useful, intimidating, and awesome to look at on the battlefield.
Although I'm loving them so much I'm wondering if I'm relying too much on them as a central unit to my army. I've always hated the idea of only being able to win with one list (which is why playing with skragg is nooooooo fun for me).
Have any of you been in a similiar situation? Do you have "crutch" units or character builds that you can't get away from? Any suggestions for me on how to rid myself of my rhinox addiction?
interesting problem . Its fine finding a winning formula that you like and using it, its just I never have with ogres yet. If you do keep using the same strategies really your opponent should start thinking of a way to beat it, and when they do you'll have to have to find another method even if you're using the same unit just in a different way.
Or just think of something crazy..........3 units of 5 leadbelchers?
There are definitely "crutch" builds... The Tenderizer for example. Nothing wrong with it, but every list you see that has a different setup for the Tyrant will immediately be met with the suggestion of going to the Tenderizer (which is a great setup for sure).
For a while I ran a list that had a unit, depending on which list version it was in, of 2 or 3 Rhinox. I would claim they were a key part of the army, since they comprised about 30% of the points for the list. I was quickly cured of relying too much on them when they fled do to a panic check when a unit of Bulls got wiped out near them.... They never rallied... A lot of points to waste without ever having gotten them into combat. Coincidentally, my Tenderizer Tyrant helped me limp my way into a draw that game, completely decimating everyone he came into contact with.
