    Festus and marauders...

    I've found a sweet combo for festus in a unit of marauders.

    19 marauders w/ mark of nurgle, great weapons and add in festus.

    I played two games using this combo for one of my core choices and oh my! Even with no armor save, the 5+ regen save is enough to keep this unit going for easily the whole game.

    I like Festus with anything MoK. The extra attack + poison and regen = halarious.

    I'm gonna run him with a unit of MoK Warriors w/ extra hand weapons. 20 poisoned attacks from the front row! Woo!

    That said, I dig the cheapness of sticking him with Marauders purely to give them survivability. Might do this with one of my blocks of MoK GW Marauders, for kicks. See how it plays.

    If its a small game of like 750-1500 pts I would use it but I really liked using him with khorne warriors, it was just crazily hard. Also giving them the blasted standard is great,

    20 poisoned attacks, 4+ As, 5+Ward Sv from shooting then a 5+ regen Sv. doesnt get much better!!!!

    I was pondering upon putting him in a unit of Great weapon weilding Ogres..... Would that be to much do you think?

    Hey I am thinking of putting a Festus in a marauder unit for my magic list. Now here is my question. Is there any viable use of equiping the marauders with shields, hand weapon, and LA? I only ask because I personally think they look cool with that combo rather than flails or GW's.

    Is there a tactical reason to back up my modeling preferance?

    For sure - defense and static combat res. At a mere 6 points a model, build it up nice and large. Basically the same story as for skeletons - but with double the WS

    Light Armour, shieild and hand weapon. Thats what i go for.

    Big Blocks of 30 with an Exalted in. You've got survivability. Lots of static res. Kills from the Exalted.

    AND there is generally lurking somewhere near by the Banner of the gods.

    It's a horrid little unit able to soak the charge from anything. then pin it there till you can flank it with something nasty like a giant or a little unit of 10 flail weilding khorne marauders.
