    Your only real options vs the green knight is to magic him from afar with your magic missile spells / bangstick, and when it comes to close combat, enagage him with a large unit with a champion in it that is wielding a magical weapon.

    Don't forget yhetees, their weapons count as magical, so might be good for solo hunting or even supporting flank charges against him.
    The iron crowned is getting closer,
    Swings his hammer down on him,
    Like a thunderstorm he's crushing,
    Down the Noldor's proudest king.

    Under my foot, so hopeless it seems.
    You've troubled my day, now feel the pain.

    thanks Grimbog Elf Ater for the tip. my brother has the green knight but he thinks that my ogre carring a magic weapon doesn't wound him. my brother is like that.


    What good are the gnoblars, anybody out there?

    Yeah but isn't the crappy thing about the Green Knight is that he can always come back?

    I mean how do you combat that, he'll just keep on coming back, diverting your attention from his main units, and ruin your battle plan.

    My good friend plays Brets and I've watched my other friend and his nuln army just curse the green knight.

    At the end of the day, the green knight is just a unit strength 2 unit that can potentially come back a few times if the Bret player rolls well. Alone, he&#39;ll die quite easily when faced with your rank and file Ogres as he&#39;s not unbreakable and you can run him down.

    If he joins a unit, combat him as you would any other character - make sure that your bruisers / tyrants have magical weapons and he&#39;ll die just as easily as any other Bret Lord.

    Let&#39;s face it, there&#39;s no way that you can stop him coming back (if your opponent rolls well), but in the end, his coming back shouldn&#39;t affect your battle plans too much. If he comes back, then he comes back and just throw a unit at him to chew on&#33;

    Also, I&#39;m pretty sure that he can only come back from woodlands, so if you&#39;re playing on a table without trees, he can&#39;t come back&#33;

    He can&#39;t join a unit according to the rules. He would be overly powerful for the 275 points if you could.

    gnoblars are a bit of a picky unit to use. One key advantge is if you have a large unit of them (they come in boxes of 24), you can probably win the combat resolution by numbers alone. Plus there is always that slim chance he wont save from the wounds inflicted. But if gnoblars lose the combat round they will most liekly run with the low ld. Use gnoblars are a distraction for another unit to hit his flank or simply tie him up.
    edit: also remeber that gnoblars tend to bicker amongst themselves when ever they arent in combat or fleeing.

    Surely thats even better though? If the green knight takes wounds when he loses combat killing him won&#39;t be that difficult if you have 3 ranks and outnumber him he is already down by 4 on combat res. He would have to have a great round of combat just to draw level.

    Gnoblars are good against Brets because you can use them to lure them into charges, place ogres 10 inches behind the gnoblars. That way the Brets can ignore the gnoblars but risk getting flanked, or they can charge the gnoblars and probably beat them and then get charged by the ogres behind them.
