Hey guys, just a quick question on behalf of my goblin ally:
What kind of counter measures does an all-Goblin army have against fear and terror. When your general has a leadership value of 7 what do you do when a dragon lands within 6" of every one of your units?
That's a tough question as goblin armies are the most susceptible armies to fear in WHFB. When I do play Night Goblins, and from what I see from Night Goblin Tournament list people take, in fact, Goblin Warbosses. The 8 leadership makes a drastic difference, and while it is no immunity to psychology like many of the newer armies have, it goes a long way. That is the only thing I know that can begin to protect from panic checks. I assume you are using Fanatics, and those should scare or hurt most flying lords by themselves. They will actually wound Manticores/Wyverns fairly easily. Dragons, not so much.
Shoot them with bolt throwers before they ever get there, then throw fanatics into what's left. That's usually your best bet.
No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
You can always take the Bound Item which give +1 LD to the army. Its bound level 5 too, so not so easy to dispell on 1 dice.
Just putting some weight behind the fanatics and bolt thrower theory.
Its the only real option...
Otherwise taking a goblin warboss is very helpful, if unfluffy.Hmm, I dont know why people think this item is any help against fear. (So many people, both on forums and where I play seem to think it works until your next magic phase, it doesn't)You can always take the Bound Item which give +1 LD to the army.
It only works from your own magic phase until the end of your own turn.
Therefore it would have no effect at all on your own troops terror tests, charging fear causing enemies and the majority of panic tests.
I reckon its only has two real uses:
Used in an orc army just after you've charged into a combat your going to win, the -1LD on the oppo could tip the scales...
Or if your running an orc gunline with magic thrown in and about to unleash a massive barrage on the enemy. The -1LD on panic tests would be very useful.
