    I took Best Beast Herds at the 96-player Buckeye Battles in Delaware, Ohio this weekend. Here's what I ran: AMpgZl0.png I think there were only three total BH players at the event (including myself) anyways, but it felt good to take home my first award from Buckeye. You can see more information about the event statistics on Warscore.

    I use two minimum size units of Wildhorns with Paired Weapons, Throwing Weapons, and Musicians, ambushing. They aren't fighty enough to handle anything stronger than peasants in combat, their throwing weapons are made irrelevant by enemy Resilience, Armor values, and clever positioning, and their inconsistent Discipline means they'll just run right back off of the board 1/3 of the time. They're Core filler, nothing else. Maybe if you're lucky your opponent will just ignore them and the nonexiste…

    Which is only accessible by a Wizard Master. Should one of an army's main strengths be gated by a 400+pt optional character that also may need to rely on the positioning of terrain?

  • Resilience problem

    Quote from Barax: “Druidism, our best friend. ” Right. Summer Growth. One spell. Definitely something an entire army should have to rely on in order to be competitive. Especially if that one spell doesn't receive any special incentive to be cast that any other army can't replicate or cancel out.

  • Resilience problem

    Deino - - Beast Herds (BH)

    Post

    Resilience is meant to be an army strength of ours, yet our most-played, most-necessary units have no better resilience and less armor than any other units in the game. The Resilience in our ASAW is in air quotes, as it's meant to be implied but doesn't show up anywhere in practice.

  • Another update goes by where the glaring issues with our army book are completely ignored and tiny points adjustments are made to try and make you forget about them. No wonder BH are the least played army when their stagnant, boring army book that struggles to compete is more of a chore to play in many cases, and stays that way over several rules update cycles.

    Since I suppose we're not allowed to have the kinds of saves that literally every other book in the game is allowed to have, I guess we should think of other ways to protect ourselves. Here's a cool unique equipment idea we could arm our Longhorns & Minotaurs with - Gnarled Hide Shields - Close combat attacks suffer -1 to Wound against models using this shield. Magical attacks do not suffer the penalty. This shield can be used alongside a Hand Weapon as normal to confer the Parry rule. How about…

    An idea that just popped into my head regarding the Jabberwock and its Breath Weapon was to instead make it a Flamethrower that wounds vs. Discipline much like the Shrieking Horror in VC, considering it is fluffed to be an otherworldly monster with a mind-shattering screech. It might help give the Jabber a much more dedicated unit identity, and provide us with some much needed support in clearing large blocks of crap infantry or in removing at least a few elite infantry. Something like: Maddenin…

    Here's some important stuff compiled from a while ago that should definitely be given a platform: Splitting Wildhorns into separate Ranged and Combat oriented units: (Hidden Content) Splitting Centaurs into Light and Heavy Cavalry versions:(Hidden Content) Updating the Centaur Chieftain to conform:(Hidden Content) Introducing new units to promote variance of army list composition:(Hidden Content) And I really like a lot of the other proposals mentioned, particularly: - Additional mount options f…

    Yep. Kept the Mongrels 3-wide with a Soothsayer on each side, and sat behind one of the Large units for cover if there wasn't any other choice.

    Quote from youngseward: “@Deino how'd you find the 3 raiding chariots? Im keen to make some and run a chariot heavy list, but really don't see how they're worth it tbh - apart from impact hits they do no damage, and at m7 they can't really threaten much other than infantry. Also theyre only t4 with a 4+ ” They were great. BH have trouble with elves and Chariots are obviously the direct answer to that. 12 S4 and 3 S6 attacks is nothing to sneeze at. Keep 'em near your Razortusk chariots or throw …

    I'm of the opinion that our monsters aren't worth it unless you take multiple of the same one, and then you don't have enough points left over to invest in meaningful scoring units like a significant Longhorn unit or enough Minotaurs to make a difference. I don't like to leave home without at least 4 scoring units (in this case the Wildhorns + Minotaurs + Centaurs if I don't Vanguard them).

    Quote from Hruggek: “I would even go that far and say that model that is Type: Cavalry isn't on foot so I wouldn't try to put Willow's Ward on him. ” He doesn't have a mount. Harnessed doesn't show up anywhere in his profile. He's on foot.

    To be fair, I'm certain the chariots in the Beastmen books of old were meant to represent the vast chariot hordes rolling around the Chaos Wastes, not the hunting parties skulking through the Drakwald. The most famous charioteer of all, Gorthor the Beastlord, originated in the Middle Mountains north of Ostland and Hochland. Not exactly the most forgiving terrain for your average chariot-driver, but he clearly made it work. I'm all hyped up on my Minotaur general right now. 5 wounds is just too m…

    As for me, my Centaurs with Lances are currently my MVP's. Throw a Banner of Speed on there, set 'em up next to a Razortusk Chariot, and they're good to go. I usually run 10-12 models, since I play in a very shooting and offensive magic heavy meta, and need those extra models in order to have any left by the time I'm in combat.

    Present an army list that actually manages to ambush more than two units effectively.

    Ambush spam? Next time you see anybody ambushing more than two units to any great effect, please feel free to let me know.
