Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey guys ive been looking through these list and making my own and i cant seem to find one that i like using Ghazkhull. Just wondering if you guys can post your ideas for a list using him. Personally i like huge armys with veriety. So try to keep that in mind if possible. Thanks guys.
Well, Ghazzy is expensive enough that he might be a liability in games smaller than 1500 or so, so bear that in mind. If there's enough room for him though, he's awesome. He's even more of a monster in close-combat than a regular mega-boss, and can even take on carnifexes and other monsterous creatures due to being immune to instant death and being able to give himself a 2+ invulnerable save for one turn.
As for lists, sorry to say it, but Ghazzy really does need a transport, otherwise, you'll probably spend the entire game running, er...waddling, across the map. This might not be so big a deal against close-combat oreinted armies, but against gunlines, and highly mobile ones, Ghazzy might never get into close-combat.
If you could get one battlewagon for him, you'd vastly improve his usefullness, and a batlewaong surrounded by footsloggers isn't really a terrible idea, put a nice gun on there, move at the same pace as the rest of your army while firing and it turns into a mobile bunker.
I used to use Ghazgkhull with a squad of nobs with 3-4 pks, painboy, waaagh banner etc. using a battlewagon as transport.
I used to use this in 1500 point games and it took about half the points cost of my army but it was well worth it. They annihilated everything in combat (except the one time I forgot to waaagh into a squad of combat termys led by Lysander). If your opponent can out manoeuvre you you're stuffed though.
I gave up using ghazgkhull when I made my warboss and nobs on bikes. They go faster!!! I decided to go all evil sunz and have bikes and trukks. Ghaz is a goff and wouldn't really fit in with the army.
