The mighty elves ably commanded by GMW and with moral support from his wife and dice rolling skills of JD vanquished the newly formed horde of Bashor the Bloody. Great game and was brilliant meeting another member of the forum. I’ll get a bat rep up at some point.
So I might well be able to get to riot’s event at the beginning of March, so been playing around with lists. As the event is 1800 points and 25% lord/hero allowances, it’s a bit different from what I’m used to. As such I’ve been doing my normal list tinkering and this is the first ‘offering’. (I’m also thinking of running HE as I’ve not played them in years!)
Bashor the Bloody - Beastlord - General - Razorgor Chariot, HA, Charmed Shield, Talisman of Preservation, Brass Cleaver, Potion of Strength - 396pts
30 b estigor - FC, Standard of Discipline - 405pts
5 Harpies - 55pts
Razorgor - 55pts
Razorgor - 55pts
Total - 1798pts
Ok so my general, being such a crucial part of the army, is again being put on his own in a potential cannon fodder situation. Do I care, no. I had such fun with this unit against grandmasterwang, that I’m dying to bring him again. Having the biggest baddest beast riding around on the biggest chariot, lording it up over the lesser beasts just seems right 😀. I have changed up his equipment though, giving him a Charmed shield and Pot of Strength for a bit more survive ability and one turn of very high strength attacks (something he lacked before).
The bsb is the standard build but because of the lack of the Ramhorn Helm in the list I was actually able to give him the 2+ save for once. It’s a shame that I find the beast banner so great that it’s an auto take in almost all my lists, even at the expensive cost but I do and it is.
In the main, I decided to forgo magic in the list. Not taking a level 4 is somewhat risky but I still wanted some magic options, so a level 2 was taken as a scroll caddy. I went with Beasts due to the +1 modifier when casting onto the army. It just makes getting spells off a bit easier.
The rest of the list is fairly standard. A large block of Gor, a few chariots and some chaff. I was playing around with not taking Beastigor and instead taking a Ghorghon or Minotaurs but they are just so reliable compared to the mino’s and I felt the list needed an additional block of troops.
I like a lot this list....a loooooot eheheh Good job! Have you already tried the "crazy" lord on a chariot? how did it perform? My only concern is that if he is targeted by cannons you can risk to lose your hammer and 396pts+100 ( he is your General...) But hey.... who am I to discourage you? sooooo Try and have fun!!
In case you wish I am " working " on a list 1800 ...but I think if I post it I will disappoint you... ( I removed the things you are so proud of...:-( so maybe better not posting...)
Go and cut more heads possible...BUT ...BUT after the competition pleeeeeeeease find some bits ( heads of Lizardmen..Ork ...men..) and glue them on the side of Bashor the Bloody 's chariot as war trophies!!! comeee onnnnnn
I’ve only used him on a chariot once and it was against grandmasterwang and he spent most of the game in combat against a treeman. The lack of strength was telling and it’s one of the reasons he now has the potion of strength. I realise that a cannon will and probably will kill him pretty quickly but I’m not taking him because he is particularly competitive but because it’s a bit fluffy and fun. Oh and he’s not actually on a chariot, I use this miniature from Mierce (on a chariot base). mierce-miniatures.com/store_mierceminiatures/images_product/mrm_dkl_fmr_blr_wcf_302_000_01_large.png. But if I have any notable victories, I’ll be sure to add heads to it 😀
ohhhh now I see why you want to play it so much...cool miniature!! I adore fluffy list and when they start to be also effective...it starts the real fun. I hope you can have good result .so good luck! Please do pics of your battles!!!
