Welcome to Librarium Online!
I have a bell but need a good 2000pt list to include it, any suggestions?
Don't even think about it. Screaming Bells only go in at least 2500 point lists and only then if they are not competitive. Sorry.
Is it to beardy? I play elves a lot and my regular takes warlord on griffon and dragon mage in a 2000pt list so I thought the bell would be a good counter,
I've seen the bell used in a 2000pts few clan rats and lots of slaves, didn't stay to see how it did.
The difference between the bell and the Dragon is that the dragon actually works and does what it needs to do well. It isn't the first time when I say that the Screaming Bell looks cool, is intimidating, but is totally unviable. It is a unit that doesn't work in Warhammer because it is combining magical support with close combat, and therefore is a detriment to both. Secondly, it is actually illegal to field a Grey Seer and Bell in a 2000 point list, as it exceeds the 500 point limit for Lords.
(Basic Grey Seer on a Bell is 440pts) Buts its so tempting for only 200pts you get a 4+ ward save, 18" line of sight, unbreakable for the unit and a larger surface area to cast spells
Oh right, whoops! I was allowing for magic items.
It is tempting, and in some games you might even get somewhere with it. I must admit, the Line of Sight is probably one of the best parts of it. Don't invest too much into it if you really want to include it because it is just like one massive magnet, and if you are playing against Empire for example and they get a few lucky cannon shots, you're screwed.
thats the trouble with taking anything like a cannon magnet, all it takes is one lucky hit and its lost, it might be a warsphinx or a stegadon, if you want to take it take it, i am still working on my 2k list but i might have both the bell and the plague furnance in.
Both a bell and a furnace! they are basically your two death-star units then. That would cost at least 1000 points, not leaving you with much material to work with for the rest of your army. Talk about putting all your eggs in one basket!
i know but it is fun and i just dont care about winning, i would also have a couple of lightning cannons and 100 slaves just for fun
ninjabackhand: point and click, again, really? even after i give you an military term "shock tactic" you still call it point and click.
