Hello, I quit Warhammer a few months back but me and my friends have just been going over these books again for some time. We came up with the idea of playing a 2,000 point game next weekend, one on two. That doesn't sound good does it? No, it doesn't. Not at all. How that goes about happening is the army will be split in two with each opposing army of mine playing 1,000 points even. Sadly, as this is very sad, I'm facing off a combined force of Orges and O+G. I'm scared, to say the least.
Now, I use a Blood Dragon or Necrach bloodline (mostly Blood Dragons) and I'll have to edit this post and put up my army list to let you get a better feel and a easier way to help me out. I'll get to that later.
Before we quit playing for some time I recall my record was something like 4-5, with a five game loosing streak. Yeah, it was horrible but I couldn't do anything about it. What I'm asking for is someone to help me with understanding how to best deal with those two combined armies.
I know Blood Dragons is a "hit 'em with all ya got" kind of army, but I've never played them like that - being way to cautious to march with everything I have and be in combat on turn one. Should I just advance everything I have and hope to destroy whatevers in my path? What units should I most be worried about on either opposing army, and which one's should I go after first? I would greatly appreciate it if anyone could help me out. :shifty:
Charging and hoping to destroy everything in your path is not the way to go with VC in general, since most of the units suck at fighting, especially against the likes of Ogres..
You need wolves and cavalry to outmanouvre your opponents and get on their flanks. Superior magic would be a big help too.. You definitely should be moving all the time with your army, getting into combat quickly isn't quite as important as getting there in the right place though. So make sure you have Vanhel's Danse Macabre to move around a bit easier. Try to blast the ogres with magic, you can stand up to greenskins in combat a bit easier. Vampires can take care of ogres in combat too.
The best news is the fact they will be playing 1k each. Thier army will not be as developed, and thier character will not be able to stand up to yours.
1. Your Character will be able to take on anything they field due to lesser point restriction. Quailty win over quanitiy unless your bretonians where you have both.
2. You will be able to out magic them. The more and more you can summon on thier flanks, (make sure at least unit strenght of 15) the more and more you take apart thier armies.
3. Zombies stall out orges Orges are big lumbering meatshields. Even without ranks they can pull combat resolution wins.
4. Due to point cost you should have more units, use them to kill out each unit at once. and use smaller units to staff thier men.
Basically when you can out mavuevre them you will win. Just take out one unit at a time. and if you start to lose on that flank do not committ more units to a losting side.
