I was thinking about using a waywatcher highborn, with the bow of loren and arcane bodkins. deploying him behind an enemy vulnerable character, like mages and stuff.
I hope it's possible killing the enemy character in the first turn.
Anyone tried this set-up?
That is my standard general for my army, I utilize 20 waywatchers and a waywatcher lord with the items you listed. It works wonders, especially if your opponent is using a vampire count or liche priest and doesn't bother to hide them in a unit. Downside, the attacks are S3, upside: you can fire off 5 attacks with an extra hand weapon. P.s. give him a 6+ ward save at least. He could get charged. 8th edition will make him even better.
Actually, an extra hand weapon won't give an extra attack with the Bow of Loren (I assume that's what you meant), since the Bow of Loren refers to "attacks on [the bearer's] profile." Alter Kindred would give him an extra shot (but then of course he wouldn't be a waywatcher). Also many players will put characters in units if they know you could have any waywatchers at all, and even if they don't the characters will get a 4+ Look Out Sir! save if they are within 3" of a unit (in 8th ed.). You also have 40 points of items left. Since you're only able to take talismans, the choice is between Amaranthine Brooch, Stone of Crystal Mere, and a common 5+ ward talisman (8th ed.). I lean toward the brooch, but the other options are a bit cheaper if you're strained for points.
i like this! I think it would work better, with weaker enemies who are likely to be hit, with the hagbane arrows though.
The problem I see is that he is a really expensive character in a very vulnerable unit. With the magic and shooting system coming, they will be even more vulnerable, and as they are worth a lot of points, your opponent will probably expend some resources to exterminate them. Still a useful unit I think, but I would go with a character in them. And I think they will be more of a flank protector, far away from the main action.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
