Welcome to Librarium Online!
I would like to know if an all-mounted force is still viable in the 8th ed?
Knights and horsemen, of course, and I'm guessing plenty of hounds.
Thanks in advance.
Although in my current games I have had a unit or two of warriors, the rest has been mounted. The best combo I've found is Knights with MoK screened by warhounds.
From a points requirement standpoint it would be difficult unless you had about 40 Marauder horsemen, as Warhounds don't count toward the minimum.
Other than that, I say go wild with the cavalry !!!!
5000 pts of WoC, 5000 pts of Orcs and now 3000 pts of Ogres...What was I thinking ????
It could work. Warriors got better, but they're still slow. Bring a few bigger blocks of m.horse could keep your entire force fast, specially when they get a free 12" move to start the game. I only have 17 painted horsemen, so it's slightly not enough to play that.
