What have people used for great weapons when it comes to marauders? Flails and just ruled them as great weapons? Or are there some good bits for great weapons that i don't know about...
I have heard of people cutting the chain part of the flail off and adding on the top of an axe to count for GW's
I use the flails and cut off the flail part off and aqdd whatever parts i want (the hand weapon heads from the marauder sprue, mix of axes and pick axes) I have a unit of 14 with great weapons FC and Mark of Nurgle. -1 to hit is great when you hit last against High Elves and you hit harder.
I shall call him Squishy, and he shall be mine, and he shall be my Squishy.
~Thank you both very much, that sounds wonderful!
GW weilding marauders are great, mark them with Khorne or Nurgle and they can be devistating. 10 S5 attacks is nice and the -1's are very nice too.
I have only made my 20 nurgle marauders and I decided to go for great weapons. I am not bothered with the strike last ill just need make sure you get them to charge first. Also giving them sheilds and light armour might be expentive but should be helpful against low strengh magic and Archers.
You can see some pictures of them in my blog thats in my sig.
Am I right in thinking that Mark of Nurgle inflicts -1 WS to an opponent rather than a -1 to hit?
~Yes, -1 WS, not just to hit in melee. Against shooting people take -1 to shoot at a nurgle unit.
Indeed, the best way is to cut off the chains on the Flails - they're already modeled for you, so it's easy.
I thought a special mention should go to the Beastmen Gors' hand weapon. Put these on top instead, and the models look bad ass Esp the sword. It's so damn long. it add lots of length to the great weapon, and just looks sweet. Orc choppaz look nice as well.
However if you do go the GW route it is advisable to make the unit as large as possible to soak up any casualties that you may recieve, a 6+ save really is a bummer against ahooty armies, even with the Mark of Nurgle.
If you have the points it is advisable to include a BSB in the unit with the Banner of the Gods to really ensure they do not run away so often.
Basically life sucks, there is only war and you're probably gonna get eaten by Tyranids, have fun.
