    1b) vermin swarm tyrant with the doom blade (and heavy armor, shield, war litter). Unless you are better than initiative 7, you are probably going down (unless you have regen and a bunch of wounds).

  • Quote from fjugin: “Quote from Ratatoeskr: “Quote from Ratatoeskr: “.....stuff about "Waargh" giving swiftstride to the riders and not the mounts... ” ” The rider gets swiftstride. But swiftstride is a special rule where it does not matter who has is. As long as one part of the model has the rule, you roll 3D6 pick 2 for the charge range. ” The Vermin Swarm Chief can get "Fetthis Broodmaster: The Chief gains +1 Movement and Swiftstride" If he also takes a Vermin Hulk Bodyguard as a mount, then t…

  • @ValourUnbound Any thoughts on whether a Plague Pendulum could join a new unit of Plague Brotherhood once the unit it started with is destroyed?

  • The State of Trance rule now prevents them from moving between units...until the original unit is destroyed? Could I THEN go join another unit? Could I put my Plague Pendulum in a minimum size unit with the intention of getting the unit killed and then running around with a super-powerful chariot?

    that is a pretty reasonable idea. I wouldn't penalize for vanguard, though, as they are already counter in the initial deployment. I am also up in the air about ambushers as it isn't assured when they come in (and they aren't on the board at the start of the game). Scouts should definitely penalize the turn order roll.

    I think the main thing that needs to get fixed is how large of a benefit it is to go first. I can't remember the last time someone opted to go 2nd (I think it only happens when there are no war machines on the table.)

  • I can't take credit for this idea, someone else suggested it earlier. Right now, being a Large Target increases these rules by 6". What if they were tied to Large Height instead? The effect of this is that a general/BSB on a hill would have a larger range of effect on the battlefield. This seems more realistic to me and could be a nice tactical decision to make. Since Large Targets are all large height already, it wouldn't change that part of the rule.
