I take it your comparing it to a dragon right?less attacks, no breath attack, only 230 pts, no hero slot...
i've only used one once or twice and it did mnoderatly well. plus the hero slot it doesn't take up could be helpful but imho i wouldn't take it and i would use the pts to get more boyz and better units so to speak
this kind of thread appears every now and then. The wyvern isn't worth it's points if given to your general. It takes away the leadership 9 from your battle to charge off, and makes your general a large target. it is rather weak in combat, so can very possibly bounce off on a charge.
Now if you give it to a second lord (Eg, 3000) then maybe. Orcs can always use some terror, and you can keep him behind a unit of orcs on a flank (this doesn't take away your general's leadership), and charge an incoming enemy over them 20"(large target sees over the units)
But then again, a giant is cheaper, and far more effective IMO
Yes, the giant is cheaper and actually better in combat, but lets not forget the speed and more importantly armour difference.
But otherwise, I agree. Generals should never EVER be put on a draconic mount, not for any army.
Armour ? In general people will use things that hit hard to take down large targets, such as bolt throwers cannons and whatnot artillery, wich will negate that save ^_^Originally Posted by Khorne Lord
Yeah, the only army wich could have a general on a dragon is the wood elves, as they don't rely on the general's leadership in thier gurerilla warfare style of play.
True, but you don't even need big guns to take down a giant. They don't have any armour save, not even against gnoblar sharp stuff.
to answer the question the wyvern kicks butt but not in an orc army much better to keep heroes on foot

who wants to rely on gnoblars and goblins to take down something like a giant? not me... I'd rather stick'em with a few bolts and drop a rock on his head or blast him with a cannon.Originally Posted by Khorne Lord
