Welcome to Librarium Online!
How many of you use musicians in your VC armies? Been assembling Grave Guard and Skeletons for my new VC army using Mantic Minis (love the Skeletons, not as keen on their revenants as Grave Guard but still think they're better than the GW minis).
With supporting attacks making CR much more variable, it seems there's less chance of combats being drawn and even then if combat was drawn, it's only 1 wound extra you're having to IoN back...
Just trying to save a handful of pts for spending on my vamps instead...
I take them for the reform thing as well, but yeah come to think of it they are a bit crap, unless someone convinces me otherwise of course
Tar pit units probably don't need a musician, however, any unit that's meant to do some damage probably wants a musician. Getting a free reform + regular movement (remember that no model can move beyond twice their movement characteristic) can really help keep your undead maneuverable. And besides, nothing feels quite the same as winning a tied combat due to having a musician, or not losing a tied combat because you both have a musician.
