Welcome to Librarium Online!
I was doing some reading earlier and noticed a nice little tid-bit I had missed in the Rapturous Standard description:
"A Break test that includes a double or the roll of a 1 is counted as an 'Insane courage' result."
Totally missed the inclusion of 1.
Pretty sure if you put that in a unit with a BSB or ON a BSB any unit with him won't be running, anyone else include this nice little treat in their lists?

Hell yeah, i tend to take a block of 20 Nurgle Warriors and i always take this beauty, I dont want my 400 point unit running because they got flanked!
I have yet to try it with a bsb with them mainly cos it makes them even more expensive, but it works well with festus in the unit along with a bsb it will be even deadlier. Tho about 800 points for them all!
That's why I'm putting it in my 30 strong marauder unit.
Makes 'em almost unbreakable.
Warriors should not be losing combat! If that happens, you did something wrong.
With the rapturous standard and bsb you always have at least 69% chance to do that break test (even against fear causing enemies). The bonus really start to show when you are loosing badly (LD6 and below).
Did you see the stats I did in the tactica: http://www.librarium-online.com/foru...ml#post1365355 (Warriors of Chaos Tactica Work in Progress)
While 69% is no where near unbreakable, for **, err for its cheap point cost, points I'll take it!

I don't typically lose combats with warriors, it's more from being out-flanked/outnumbered that I end up having to roll break tests. Good to see I'm not the only one who sees the potential awesomeness of this little beauty!
p.s. Ooooh nice stats table~!

ditto in head on fights my warriors dont fail but its the times tht they get caught out by flanking or the other player refuses to fail his LD tests at -6!!!!!! iritates me sometimes lol
In smaller games it's brilliant and combined with a BSB It's a dirty little item. But it will only affect that one unit. Banner of the gods affect all units within 6 inches. Ok its 6 times the points lol. But still.
Personally i'll have both thanks
I did all the mathammer once on this, at any negative modifiers with and with without the banner, if i find it ill post it.
Yup! It really shines when you have to take a charge from an opponent with lotsa static resolution. I play against Bretts alot, and, often, I have to take a charge from a KotR unit with Standard+Warbanner+BSB+Warbanner+Virtue that gives +1CR. So that't +5CR and, you know, KotR CAN kill a warrior or two on a charge.
It's pretty handy.
