So yeah i've got about 30 warriors with the MoT, which I used back when each unit with the MoT added a power dice. It's been a good 2-3 years since my last battle and now i'm wondering what to do with them now that the rules have changed? Should I keep them with the MoT or should I change them to another mark?
I feel sort of reluctant about repainting them as I think they look pretty cool in metallic blue armour , but I would rather repaint them than have a unit that looks like it has the MoT but actually has another mark. What are your thoughts?
Well I dont know how you feel but Id say keep the paint and just change the mark. I paint my army with a uniform scheme and it doesnt match their marks. Some people may think thats lame, but I prefer to run a scheme thats not the norm. If we really had to do this we would be forced to only 4 basic color schemes.
But thats just my opinion. If you want to keep them MoT an idea that is liked a lot is MoT paired with blasted standard for a 4+ ward against shooting. But alone Idk if MoT is worth it. A 6+ ward may not do anything if you dont roll well.
Personally I think MoS is hands down the mark to go. Its cheap and is extremely useful.
Yeah it's true I would be handicapping myself if I only gave units the mark that goes with their armour. But is a 6+ ward save that bad?
If say I had a unit of 30 warriors with the MoT that ward save should in theory save about 5 men, which means i've saved 80 points worth of men (assuming they have only sheilds) while only spending 20 points on the mark itself. Ok so I probably wouldn't have a unit so big, but to me that sounds like a good deal.
Well that is definitely too big of a unit. Your enemy will simply ignore them. And yes a 6+ ward save will make almost double its points if you save only two models, BUT for half the cost you can make your units immune to panic, fear, and terror. That is great for the cost. But if you want to try MoT you can give it a try. The best way to see what you like is to use the items in a game. Ive never used MoT, but I just love not worring about fear units.
Keep your paint job, I'm sure it's nice . On a general basis, keep your MoT if you're going against a shooty opponent: dwarves, maybe empire. Also keep it if going against HE. It may seem weird, but since those guys always strike first, you will have to make alot of armor saves. It will be useful.
