Hey everyone, I just recently got a unit of wild riders, but I lost one of the upperbodies to the musician. So I am instead taking a warhawk rider, doing some cutting and adding the glade guard horn/arm and I will be doing something about his other arm. Anywho, so out of this I will be getting an eagle which isn't too bad because now I can use a rare unit in smaller games and switch it for my waywatchers or treeman in bigger games.
My question I want to know is that does anyone ever use a bsb on great eagle. I read about it in the Tactica, but I can't really decide if this is useful. I also might be looking into ideas that will allow me to switch my bsb (just a glade guard who will recieve a different paint job, and he is actually the only other standard besides the new wild riders so I am not too worried about using a regular model as a hero.)
Also, I know bsb's arn't always required, especially since I will most likely never be using two treemen. One idea I was thinking, was that I could take my HoDA from my alter and give it to the bsb for some punch? (hopefully against enemy mages)
I used to take a BSB, and it found out to be very useful as WE combat res isn't very good. But there was 2 problems: the army stretches too far for the BSB to be effective
And using the slot for an alter was better.
I join him to wardancers w/ a sword of might. It proved himself worthy.
Now, the flying BSB has longer M range so that allows to keep it where it needs to be. A terror spite could be tempting. But I don't know if giving him two roles is gonna work.
There's nothing like trying!
The BSB will greatly increase the chances of your Stubborn Treemen and EG units staying in combat. An ancient with Rerolls on his ld 9 has like a 90%+ chance of staying in combat when your BSB is within 12" of it.
