Page 97 states that characters main join other characters of the same type. So let's have fun and come up with some power uber units.
If you were playing a 2500 point unit, and you went nuts with characters, what might you run?
Here's a unit I call the Khorne Row.
Khorne Lord, juggernaut, general, sword of swift slaying, crown of command, armor of fortune, luckstone, stream of corruption
Exalted Hero of Khorne, jugger, BSB, talisman of preserveration, potion of foolhardiness, halberd
Exalted Hero of Khorne, jugger, bronze armor, obsidian amulet, potion of speed, halberd
They truck with a Knight Train of Nurgle/Banner of Rage.
Will run standard, champion, and three heroes in front rank. That's 8-wide. So there's still 9 knights to make a supporting rank. They'll pack over 40 attacks on the charge, and they have +2 to combat res with standards.
The unit is -1 to hit in shooting. Has a 4+ ward against magic. It's a hell of a rocket. What do you think?
It's designed to be a deathstar/horde slayer. They look for characters in big units so that they can unleash an unholy number of attacks, kill off enemy characters, and take out the unit, too.
What combos can you concoct?
I would run that unit with Knights of tzeentch and blasted standard. Banner of rage is so-so when the whole front rank is khornate. every cannon in the game would target that unit, so a phat ward save could be nice to have.
"The more choices you force the opponent to make, the better the chance for you to capitalize on his mistakes"
Yep, I'll have to agree with Mr. Wayne on the Tzeentch.
This will probably attract ALL fire from the enemy, including magic.
So most of your other units should be unharmed once they reach the enemy.
Could be fun to test this.
There was a similar idea about three weeks ago.
Screw the spray gun. I paint my own models!
I fancy a unit of 3 Khorne heroes on juggers. Wonder how well a Chaos knight fits on the new plastic juggers. It wouldn't be a fun if that unit was shot by some bolt throwers lol.
