    Is The Rhymer's Harp worth it?

    I was wondering what everyone thought of The Rhymer's Harp. A 5+ ward save for an entire unit is sweet, especially with EG or wardancers, but it does cost [almost 80 pts].

    EDIT: I fuzzied the point cost to adhere to GW's copyright. --DavidVC04

    yes IMHO ist is. doný forget that you can get a bloack of say 20 EG with a 5+ ward and move though all dificult terain with no penalty.
    try this item in big games with a big block of EG your points spend will pay back big time.
    people already hate the amount of ward saves a WE can get (at least that's my experience )
    and suddenly having a big infantry zapping across the field with a 5+ armour AND ward is just sweet.

    save it for big games, in smaller i would not take it but don't forget about it either, it can be really useful.

    hope it helps

    My main opponents are brets, lizardmen, tomb kings, dark elves and chaos. No shooty armies there.

    With a highborn, the unit is stubborn, and with the rhymer's harp helping out, it could make that unit much more durable, especially since they have no really armor save against opponents with Str 4 and up. I've yet to try it out, but I think it could really work. And if you deploy somewhere that your opponents will think is a bad idea (in front of a river, a rock stand, etc.), you could really surprise them.
