Welcome to Librarium Online!
I was hoping for some info/tactics for Great Eagles to be discussed. It frustrates me that there is no armor save because after a few lucky rolls all of a sudden my awesome and gigantic great eagle is being taken out by an inefficiently equipped for close combat, orc shaman...
Any thoughts anyone?
I love my eagle. Things I use it for:
1. Warmachine hunting.
2. Baiting frenzied units into a charge
3. Blocking charges or taking a charge to get enemy units out of position
4. Taking out the last wound on an enemy spellcaster
5. Support charing to get a flank/rear bonus
The list is pretty endless, yes they have no save but for 50pts they are a great sacrificial unit.

The "A Smart Player Will..." theory is a complete paradox. If we make an assumption that everything we do is outsmarted, then theoretically we can never win.
