I'm wondering about how much Galrauch had improved since the 7th edition.
He was our dumbass lord and almost the worst choice of all Warriors of Chaos special characters, but with the new rules I think he had a nice boost: level 4 wizard that knows all spells from the lore of Tzeentch it's nasty with the new magic phase, his breath weapons (mutation included) can be used in close combat and Initiative 6 now have a true meaning.
I'm pretty sure that he may worth his hundreds of points more than before.
What do you think about him?
Can't say i've ever used him to be fair but you are right, he has had a bit of a boost. Don't forget about Stomp too!!! D6 str 6 auto hits isn't bad either! It means he can take on whole enemy units on his own.
hmm... you're right.. and it all does sound logic..
sounds like it's time to playtest this guy!!
sadly you can only use in 3000 point games or more, the forgeworld model is awsesome and i would like one. as for the dragon i would like one, so i can build a dragon based chaos army.
i was thinking the same thing about this guy yesterday and plan on using him in my next game on Friday or Tuesday, ill let you know, but im fairly certain this guy will rock the table.
thought he was only 600 pts though, and was able to get in a 2500pts game, ie. what we play.
yes, you can (just) play him in a 2500 point match. He is only a few points shy of the 25% maximum, but he is within it. So rock on dude, let us know how he goes!
Lol dude ur pic is awesome!!!
FINALLY played the game last night, havent played in forever cause of the holidays..
Galrauch did great, was getting alot of spells off, he adds 5 to his casting roll which is nice, and he only failed his LD test once. i faced off against Orcs, but my opponent was playing mostly horde units with one spear chucka ( i got lucky on that) he didnt really have much to put down a dragon, but swarmed over the rest of the my army. his breath weapons were ok, but oll the orcs are T4 so the S2 was crappy and the special one was pretty crappy too, but the S4 worked great the game ended in a draw with me on top with 60pts more in victory points, but a great game that went back and fourth.
has no save against bolt throwers, (the one shot he did land my 6+ saved it (thank you TEZ))
great caster, knows all the TEZ lore spells, and gets +5 to cast (only +4 to dispel)
large target so give his LD 18inches
has 3 breath weapons
3 breath weapons? how do you work that one out?
chaos dragon has 2 breath weapon attacks; 1 at S4 -1AS and the other is S2 -3AS
Galrauch has his own special "breath of Change" breath weapon
can only use each one once per game but was still fun to kite and drop the breath weapon hammers!
