Welcome to Librarium Online!
Love Him! Worth his points, Very effective, and his Unique army changes I use
He's Good. I like the army Core switch, or I like his cost v value, or effect, but not all
Eh. I think he's either barely worth it, or barely not.
If he wasn't cool enough to be tapping Ariel, I wouldn't even let him wingman for me at a bar
I wouldn't even take the giant green turd to a bar. Useless like a T1 Orc.
Mostly asking in the 2000-2999 range.
Making Sisters of Battle into Women of Battle
Give a Rep Star if you like what someone said. Especially Me. I'm an unabashed Star whore. Blame my 2nd grade teacher and those stupid good behavior stickers. I'm just conditioned. I'm the Pavlov's Dog of stars.
You win with VP, NOT with kills
I've never used him, but i don't think he's worth the points to be honest....
The only protection he has against anything is a 5+ ward that doesn't work against magical attacks, and two dogs to use as sheilds....
If I were to use him, I'd probably use him as a moving bolt thrower and a support charger, and the fact that he loses wounds if he loses combat really doesnt appeal to me.
Not a character I would buy any time soon...
Herald of the Colonel; Festooned with pistols, riddled with vermin, and finger lickin' good...
Mobile bolt thrower is great. He's also US6 which means he alone can deny ranks (US8 with the dogs). Causing Panic within 18" on the first charge can wreak havoc on something like a skink shield line or other low leadership troops (Gobbos)
+2 Dispell dice is good too, along with a strength 7, 6 attack charge almost always hitting on 3's.
I take him in 2000-3000pt friendly games, he's not tourney/competition good, but its fun playing a "Wild Hunt" army, Lots of Wild Riders and Dryads.
For his points, and his fluff, you'd expect a whirlwind of close combat destruction. He's good, but his weaknesses can't make his value considerable at all.
Not worth it at all. When WEs get re-done (in the distant future) he will certainly need a re-make.
- 5+ save that bones vs. magic
- Loses wounds on combat res??? you kiddin me???
- His bow is what people would use him for? He's supposed to be a combat engine, not a WE moveable war machine!!!!
- Unbreakable, another mixed blessing because he can't join any unit in the WE army. You'd expect him to be able to join wild riders. right???
I thought I remember reading in Orion's rules that he can join a unit of wild riders? Is that not there? (am I remembering incorrectly?)
I thought he could join a unit of WR's...
EDIT: He Can, see the FAQ

I say this because unbreakable characters can only join unbreakable units (Warhammer rulebook, pg79)
FAQ you say? Has GW finally made one? (Prays) Please tell me that it is.... We have all been waiting years for one. If its that other one i remind you it isnt legal. thats just something to go on.
Look for the post labeled "FAQ"
Also, The BRB says that the Army books always overrule the BRB. So if Orions Rules say he can join Wild Riders. He can.
Well,I wont use him in the 2000-2999 points range but for a legendary battle i would think about it.
I dont really like using orion, because the only army he helps me to beat is tomb kings. I find that he's useless against any other army as he limits the army too much.
If he allowed WE to still take Waywatchers then I would be up for it. Theres also the thing that he only has a ward save, and suffers from the crumble rule.
I think all the WE characters need improving as ours are really limited
