    Chaos War Mamoth-Worth It

    Does any one have opinions on the chaos war mamoth in "Tamurkhan:Throne of Chaos"?

    I used it recently and it did not at all bad but i was playing against skaven so no high strength things to wound it except warp lightning cannons.
    Does anyone have experience using one or playing against one?

    Also, how could you have possibly had a good experience with that thing against Skaven? Thing shoulda been dead turn 2. Tell your friend to check out the Skaven forum.

    The excellent thing about the Tamurkhan war Mamoth is it states the you can have any infantry unit from WoC, or Chaos Dwarves so i decided to put on some Infernal Guard with Blunderbusses.

    I love this even more!!

    I personally would just love to field one for nothing more than the chance of fielding a really lovely model, lets face it, what's just not to like about having it on the battefield?

    especially now that the empire have got that revolting pin headed griffon monstrosity thing going on.

    I really must buy that book...



    @BrockSamson - I really enjoyed reading your tactica in the Skaven forum, hats off to you my good man!

    Gracias, it's still a work in progress and I can only take credit for half of it.

    make it a warshrine and it gets a 4+ wardsave = pwnage.

    we recently had a tournament where there were 4 fielded in various armies (2 squigoths in orc armies)

    they were the storm of magic ones so have to ward save.

    its very polar how they perform based on their attack table. A few rampaged thorugh entire armies, while others died in 1 round of combat vs 40 HE spearmen.

    the main problem with it is it has a HUGE base, so there are going to be a lot of attacks coming at you.

    BUT, make it warshrine and its awesome.

    Yeah, looking through my copy of Tamurkhan all that I'm seeing is the "any infantry unit" portion of the rules. I might be blind here (was up all of last night with ill family) but I don't think that you can make him into a Warshrine.

    They're good - they have the same downfalls as any other monster. Cannons will wreck them (although not kill them outright - too many wounds) and there are ways to pound a lot of high-strength shots in. If your opponent can't figure out how to deal with it, and you keep it stuck in against flanks or units who can't do much damage to the front, you're going to run roughshod over their army. So, as Hellcannons said, my experiences with it have been pretty polar. Sometimes great, other times... he just rolls over. Most of the stuff in T:ToC is already a tad overpriced, so not only is he a big part of your army, it's also pretty much a guarantee that you could get better stuff just from the WoC book to fill those points. There's better stuff in the rest of the book too - look through the Chaos Dwarfs and tell me that you don't want some InfernalBusses in your ranks. Or the combined-hosts, and grab a few Daemons (Flamers... ohmygod Flamers). Hell, you can have both if you go for a predominately Warrior army, since Chaos Dwarfs can be included in a Warriors host, and therefore in a combined armylist with Daemons or Beasts.

    Tamurkhan is my contingency plan for when GW inevitably wrecks my Warriors book.

    I pretty sure you can make him a WS as part of an upgrade.
