Welcome to Librarium Online!
Does anyone know how to play an army of Mahud? I'm thinking of collecting Mahud, and i wanna know what's the right way to go around it.
Since Mahud don't have bows, should i field as many with blowpipes as i can?
Tell me a little about fielding Mahud, if you know anything about them.
I've though of a mahud army list.. but i'm vexed as to whether it would work...
This force is exactly 700 pts, so tourney size.
- 1 Mahud King on Camel with shield + warspear- 95 Pts
- 2 Tribe masters, 1 w/ shield, 1 w/ spear & spear, 70
+ 65 pts
- 15 Mahud warriors, 5 w/ spear, 5 w/ P-blowpipe, 5 w/ just shields 180 pts
- 2 Half trolls, 2/ 2h weapons 90 pts
- 5 Mahud raiders 4 w/ warspear 104 pts
- 1 mahud warrior w/ banner 41 pts
- 1 mahud raider w/ banner 60 pts
I haven't collected it, but if i am to collect mahud, i want to know what to firstly aim for.
Do you people think it's work?
You might try a proxy battle first. I haven't collected any myself. I stopped collecting small forces of each type when the hobbits came out so I'm not much help. I was reading that it might be better not to take the half trolls as the Mahud are similar enough but with an extra attack that makes a difference. (I'm going off the top of my head, so correct me if I'm wrong.)
Mahud have loads of F4 S4 attacks but no Stand Fast!. Thay have a special rule instead that Mahud pass all Courage tests if a Mahud Hero is in combat within 6", making it extra important that you get them into combat quickly. You might want to go 50/50 with the blowpipes and spears so that you have some ranged firepower and still be able to support allied models with an extra Attack.
As for Half Trolls they have 2 Attacks at F5 and S5 and 2 Wounds (T5) and the option for two-handed weapons (equivalent to a Mordor Urukhai Captain with no Might, Will or Fate).
Have to mention the Mahud Raiders. These guys hit so hard it's almost unfair to do it: 7 attempts to wound at S4 if they charge and win their fight.
I'm also looking to get some of these guys. From what I can gather:
Blowpipes are awesome. Try and get a decent few into your army.
Half Trolls are nice, but....
Mahud Riders are the hardest thing in the list. They hit incredibly hard.
However, a Mahud King on foot with a pair of Half Troll bodyguards will hurt things.
Don't be afraid to shoot with this list. What I find is that you can stymie enemy infantry by shooting at them, and they don't want to come close because of your combat prowess. Then you just wait for the cavalry to roll round.
Mahud Tribemasters on camels with war spear and shield is this shizz. I would take two if I could fit it.
Hope some of this helped =]
My reply has been a few months later and on a different account, but thanks a lot. That all definitely helps, and I think now I may actually carry through and buy those troops =D XD
