Welcome to Librarium Online!
Ok, i've seen lots of talk about the Doom Totem. And battle standard Bearers with no Magic standard on Juggers.
But i've seen no talk about the Banner of the gods. Do people not think it's worth it? To expensive?
Personaly i love the banner, It's saved my hide pretty much every game that i've played.
I imagine it could be VERY helpful, but honestly, in a 2k points game, it's hard to squeeze it in, I'll always have one in my troops based 3k point lists, but magic based 3k lists it's not that necessary honestly.

If you are going to have the Banner of the Gods it is worth placing it in a large unit of warriors or marauders with shields. The combined effects of terror and stubborn can be pretty usefull. I usually only take one in games of 2500pts+.
Aye same here. Or i take it instead of a Lord in 2000.
I usually have a unit of warriors (or chosen) With a unit of 30 odd marauders on each flank with shields. unit of 30 stubborn with a re-roll? not going anywhere thank you!!!!!
It's quite good into tricking your enemy aswell, letting your enemy flank charge them and front charge them think they'll over run, the marauders stay there and you can then react and in turn and flank charge both those units.
Thats a really good idea I must try that myself! I personally love the Banner of the Gods, its been the same for me its good in games I feel of 2500+
It pretty much turns any unit that has the BSB in it into one hell of an anvil unit. It is important to give the BSB the mark of Nurgle so that he has a chance of survival in a challenge as that is a lot of victory points (350pts+) to loose in a challenge.
This is true. My opponants usually take tooled up characters when fighting my army so they usually win that challenge and then challenge the BSB in the next round of combat so I'm just speaking from personal experience.
