Welcome to Librarium Online!
I'm considering incorporating Ariel into my army...and was curious what the general concensus is about her.
Seems that she's almost impossible to kill and knowing the entire spell book makes her very versitile.
anyone have any thoughts on her?
Also, Skaw is about to be in most of my army lists. Those hawk attacks are devistating and will be nice against the O&G Giant IMO.

I've used Skaw a couple of times and really liked him. Those hawks, like you mention, are nasty in combat and shooting. And he's cheap for a special character. Compare him to what you'd pay for a regular alter with a full 50 pts of items.
I haven't used Ariel as I'm not too impressed with her abilities. But I'd still give her a go sometime.
What don't you like about Ariel? Other than the exorbant cost? lol
Seems to me that she's really only vulnerable to shooting attacks. She would be damn hard to kill, and a really powerful magician.
Noone would dare cast on her I think.
She just seems really expensive for a caster. Once an opponent figures out that he can't charge her that easily, he won't bother, and once he learns that he shouldn't target her magically, then he won't. So it seems to me we're paying a lot of points for her to be left alone. I suppose it's good in that she represents 600 pts that are hard to add to the VP column.
I do like that she knows all the spells. She's the only WE character that can do that. And the +1 is nice.
And immune to panic doesn't seem that great to me since panic is less of a problem for high ld armies.
SHe just seems pricey to me.
I really do want to try and field an army with Both Orion and Ariel, but I probably will never bother to model either unit.
I think she might be work this points if you include her in a big unit. I am just not sure if her rules would apply as they are attacking the squad not just her.
i would recommend skaw on the basis that hitting automatically on a 4+ is great, plus you can even have him in a 1k battle [which is what i do] and i loved the model so i bought it online, kind of obligates me to use him all the time :shifty:
where did you find the model online to purchase?
Where the heck did you find Skaw???
Nevermind that is one of the ugliest models I've yet seen, going to have to scratch build.
