Hey Guys, i play 40k but do all kinds of conversions. And i would like to know what you guys think about Centaurs. I chose Woodelves, as the most likely army to have some, and I would like it if you guys could help me build some rules for them, I dont know much about the Fantasy rules, so if you guys couyld find it in your hearts to share your thoughts on movement, WS, BS, S, T, special rules and all that, it would be great.
lol oh yeah, I got a little confused there, sorry. But yeah, use the Centigor stats as help. Maybe have centaurs only T3 but faster movement or something? You could also change them to S3 but with spears, that way they will be fairly cheap...(or cheaper than Centigors anyway).
haha yeh centigors, i looked at them and am like, oh good as, but they look so, evil and messy. thats mainly what inspired me to make a good versian of them when i coudlnt find any, plus ive always like centaurs. really, i just want to make some though (conversian addict), which ive already half done. theyre starting to look really good i might add, and if i can find a digital camera ill post some pictures for sure.
yep, some are going to have spears, and some, bows. leather armour, the ones with spears will have shields. one will have a banner or soemthing, horns (ones you blow in), dont know if these have rules representing them, but theyre gunna be there for deco. ohhhhhh, so much green stuff.
i was thinking though
special rules: fast cavalry.
hows that sounds guys, though i havent aclue about warhammer rules. hope its not too powerful.
ok cool, so how do i represent the centaur, say, kicking some guy in face with his hooves? cause i mean thats the reason i gave him two attacks.
yeh well im using the glade riders as the base of the conversion. so haha, may as well use their stats as well. with a few special rules. plus, in myth, centaurs are star gazers, but usually drunk and wild. any special rules there yous can think of? once again i suck when it comes to fantasy rules, but if yous name the rules ill go into my local stockist and look them up. muahaha, saves me 75 bucks...
You could always use the special rules for centaurs listed in the Beasts of Chaos army book. the extra attak one and the one where a dice roll affects their behaviour. Cant post the rules so just tlook up the unit in the book.
A centaur is a rider AND a mount.....not a rider with a mount, hence there is no head for the mount to attack with, only legs....LIke the charge move in the beast of chaos list....I hope that is what you meant....and it probably is.....*cough*
