Welcome to Librarium Online!
Going to GW tomorrow and im supposed to be playing a 1500pt battle against a Chaos Dwarf oponent. Im only able to use a limited amount of troops (its all i have so far) and im pretty damned scared of his black orcs List is as follows :
Hand weapon, nightmare, with barding
Hand weapon, heavy armour, Battle Standard
Hand weapons, Shields, light armour , musician, standard and skeleton captain.
shield, light armour , musician, spears
musician, standard, hand weapons
8 Black knights
Hand weapons, lance, heavy armour, barding, musician , standard , Hell Knight
Information on how force will be comprised:
Unit of 18 skeletons will contain a vampire thrall and the wight lord to give it some muscle (would this also give it rank bonus, it will be in 4 ranks?)
Vampire thrall on nightmare will be with the Black Knights, as either part of the unit, or close by to avoid magic / shooting attacks aimed directly at him.
Im not sure what bloodline to use either, i have a choice between Necrarch and Von Carstein...
I havn't added any magical items yet, because im unsure as to what would be effective, and is there any chance of a necrach actually being able to cast spells? storyline seems to point them that way :blink:
What im looking for is how to tackle his more powerful troops with what i have available, especially those black orcs
Thanks in advance for any help
forget his Black Orcs and worry about his blunderbussers... if you charge Black Orcs they'll die off but if you charge his blunderbussers from anywhere but flank or rear they'll shred you to confetti... take necrarch bloodline to magic them to death and raise tons of suicide skeleton units or if you take von carstein than take summon wolves to hit artillery, wizards, or blunderbussers from the rear
