    About: "look out sir"

    I just have a quick question whether or not a sorceror lord mounted on a disc of tzeentch, can claim a look out sir role from a unit of trolls if it is within 3"?

    From what I understand they need to be of the same base size to claim this role? Hence a lord on a disc can't make a "look out sir" roll from nearby infantry. But what about trolls, ogres or dragon ogres?

    - Thank you

    No, it all depends on the unit type of the character. A character on a disc counts as cavalry, so you can do it with Knights or Marauder Horsemen.

    ahh alright. thanks for the answer!

    So would your opinion be that it's a bad idea to take a sorcerer lord on a disc without some kind of cavalry he can lean up against? Or is it viable to let him go solo with a charmed shield to ignore the first cannon hit?

    My main issue is that if my 350 point sorcerer lord is in a unit of warriors, he's practically useless in combat since a single warrior does just as well as he does. If the warrior unit is lost I look at 700 points lost. If I beef up the lord with a 3+ ward save, then my opponent is most likely going to kill the warriors and win through combat res.

    - So how do you guys field a sorcerer lord in say 2000 pts?

    Thank you

    He has a 3+ Ward save if you give him a Talisman of Preservation and Mark of Tzeentch - that's enough survivability to field him on the Disc, provided you don't leave him open to get charged very often (and being a Flier, that's not exactly hard to do).

    I would think using terrain to the best of your ability could help avoid those cannon shots as well. If they can't see you then they can't shoot you. Buildings and forests are pretty useful in this way. The disc lords greatest ability is that he flies, no sense in bringing him if you're going to stick him regular cav. Might as well just give him a chaos steed than.
