    Maneater tactic idea

    Basically, since 2 ranks of models can fight now, you would think you would have to take a unit of 5/6 maneaters for that to effect them. But what about a unit of 4 in 2 ranks of 2. They didn't have a rank to begin with, so their formation doesn't effect that, and you don't loose any attacks. So now you have a slightly smaller frontage with the same hitting power (basically). My main idea though is arming the front two with cathayan longswords and the back two with great weapons. This means they have the higher WS and I so defend against higher elites (who'll mostly hitting on 4s instead of 3s), and higher S attacks to kill elites back. So the idea in a nutshell is force the enemy to attack the higher WS ogres and then getting to attack back with great weapon wielding ones

    Ye i like the idea, never tried maneaters much. But this sounds good, I really should play 8th now still played 7th Xd.

    Hmm...I do believe this works. It probably shouldn't, but it does. It doesn't exactly make logical sense because casualties are taken from the back. So they're rolling to hit the Ogres with swords, but they're actually wounding the Ogres with the great weapons.

    Then again, a lot of things don't exactly make sense. Like if a knight with a lance charges an elf with a dagger, how the hell does the elf hit first AND receive the full force of the knight's charge? You'd think that the knight would have to miss in order for the elf to hit. Otherwise, that dagger would have to be twelve feet long.
