I'm thinking of running two exalteds on discs an keeping them close together so they can operate like a unit. I realize they cannot become a unit, but they could move and charge together.
I think this tandem would make a great team. Would be 8-10 attacks plus discs, at high WS and 5+ Str depending on how they were kitted out. They'd need some good def... Golden eye, Armour of Morrslieb. Thinking they'd be kitted more as rank and file killers vs character hunters.
Has anyone run this type of set up? Successes? Any advice or pointers?
thanks in advance.
If i was going to do 2 exalted i would do them as slaanesh and give them steeds of slaanesh.
Still have 20" move
no longer vunerable to psycology
still able to move on the turn you rally if you flee.
Narrower frontage for the smart generals who place warmachines in between blocks of infantry.
Able to charge into forests.
null_sheen, I like it.... >:-) maybe even run one as a BSB.
Are steeds of slaanesh really smaller (cavalry), base size speaking ? I thoughts all of our mounts, at the exception of the barded horse were on large bases (or Ogre size) bases.
if i remember correctly the book states that the jugger,disc and palanquin are all on 50x50 bases without mentioning the steed.
Also, its a steed of slaanesh, this is what the daemonette cavalry also ride and they're on cavalry bases (i don't think there's any current models for them at the moment, i used to have metal ones)
The champion on the boobworm is a daemonic mount, though it does look better than the old cavalry modelsand I dont think anyone would hvae any issue with you using it as a steed
Steeds are on a cavalry base 25x50. The book calls out the daemonic mounts, jugger, disc and palanquin being on 50x50 bases because they follow the rules for cavalry even though they are not on a cavalry base. By omitting the steed in that list the book is saying that the Steed is on a standard 25x50 cavalry base. Hope that helps.

IMO 2 disc's are better then the steeds. because with flying you can fly over units .... you can also charge a unit and in the overrun fly over the unit behind it, to leave it in the open for a trap e.t.
Do not forget that a steed of slaanesh can be march blocked.
I use two disc's. One of them is a lord and the other a hero bsb.
My lord is equiped with runesword/ armour of morsllieb and talisman of protection. and my hero bsb has a flail and eye of tzeentch.
I became to love these. There fast/ there cool and they do damage.
Just my thoughts about it.
So you charge a massive 1" for anything in a forrest? Its not like people hide war machines in forrests is it? Or skirmishers for that matter.
What if they flee into a forrest, you cant even cut them down.
How do you trap anything with a US2 unit?
If people only leave a 25mm gap between units and hide the war machine behind said units in the gap, how do you charge them?
Yes discs are good but are far more limited than steeds
