I've been poking around looking for things I would like to see in my army, and aside from two eagles and another box of battalion (I'm a high-points nut! ), I've been eyeing the other lord models, available only through GW's website. Specifically, these are:
Lord with Bow
Lord with two weapons
I really like all these models, but since getting two eagles will cost me close to 50 sterling already with the price increase calculated in, I am a bit hesitant to buy them if I really don't need them.
Taking two weapons over a great one is hardly justifiable to me in a single model, even if that model has higher stats than your average troop choice, so I feel that Lord with two weapons has very limited uses. Conversely, since all Lords have a bow, taking the model with bow obscures the primary weapon the model uses (sword, for example).
Therefore, the only two possible choices are Wardancers and Waywatchers. While not bad, I feel the Lord is highly vulnerable in those places.
All in all, I think the only viable choice in game terms is the Lord with Great Weapon, which I have 2x already. What do you think? Are any of the above models (and their gameplay counterparts) justifiable?
Cheers for any advice.
I have used wardancer nobles and highborn's several times and they always seem to do really well for me.
I think that if your ever in the mind to use a different sort of Highborn/Noble then wardancers are very effective.
"I am the architect of fate!"
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
Sirkently - you can probably pick up most of the models at the discount stores like Wayland games or Warstore, for ignificant px reductions vs. Games Workshop proper, so you might be able to have your caks AND eat it!!

Unfortunately, this is out of option for me - Maelstrom Games don't offer these, and with Warstore, I would have to pay VAT and possibly some import cost, which would cost me higher than buying at GW's UK store online. (This is possibly more viable to do in Canada, where the standard GW prices are already way too high.)
It's not like I need them that much - so far I've been quite happy with your standard alter noble with a great weapon. But the models are great
