What marked heroes do people use to support undivided armies? I'm thinking of an army with some khorne warriors, marauders, maruader horsement, furies, beastherd. Really I like to field a bunch of 'stuff' and see what it can do.
Basically I'm looking for nifty gimmicks here to amuse me. Some early thoughts I have:
Tzeentch exalted champ on disk or chariot, with eye and mirror.
Khorne hero on foot with warriors.
Slaanesh mage, cause I've heard people ranting about them...
Are either the tzeentch or slaanesh casters any good as lvl 2, or are they only effective as lvl4?
A lvl 2 mage is enough IMO (or more than one :yes: ). The only advantage of having a lvl 4 is the extra dice that can be used to cast spells (5 instead of 3). If you take 2 lvl 2 mages instead, you get the same amount of powerdice and dispeldice .. plus you can use your magic on different parts on the battlefield.Originally Posted by kooshlord
Using 'support heroes' for an undivided army is one of the advantages of playing undivided. To be honest I've never mixed marks in any of my armies, as I think it unfluffy (I play pure undivided). But sure, I think there are many ways to create very effective armies in this way.
As you mentioned, I think it's best to mix khorne with one of the magic-users (tzeentch or slaanesh).
What type of general will you use? Lord of hero?
If I have multiple support heroes, I may just use a hero as a general. I usually play with 1 Khorne lord and 1 beast shaman. But with so many pricey heroes, and a big pricey unit of Khorne warriors, I probably can't afford the points for a lord and still have an army. Maybe like this:
Undivided Mounted Hero as General. He leads a pack of warhounds and smacks into things.
Khorne hero and unit of warriors.
Tzeentch hero on Disk, for flying around annoying things.
Beast Shaman with BeastHerd, for more power dice...
Like I said, this isn't a well thought out concept. I don't know points offhand, don't have the book in front of me. I suspect this many heroes and units are not going to leave me with very much... I need to think about this some more and I'll mock up an army list for people to pick apart. Any more thoughts are appreciated.
