    Really cool style! One can see a lot of effort put into conversions. My favourite are GZ chariots. Real beasty machines of dectruction!

    Centaurs are far better. For 15 centaurs with GW you get only 23 longorns, which have 1 attack instead of 2. 8 wounds more are important, but these are stompable wounds, so quite often it doesn't make difference. And then count all advantages of centaurs, like high movement and drunkard. Obviously 30-40 Longhorns are really strong anvil/hammer, but their cost is much higher. One thing, except of bodyguard, which works better for longhorns is good resurrection value with summer growth.

    My new most favourite unit are GW centaurs. Maybe they are paper, but they hit incredibly strong. If you get 15, even after losing half of the them due to enemy striking 1st, you can win combats. Somehow opponents don't expect that Blooded horn totem is so great on them. If you manage to cast it, which is not so hard, just the front rank can bring down greatest heroes and monsters. Let them charge you and DIE! So much fun!

    20 mongrel archers cost 155 pts? Great vs unarmoured infantry. Can also work as chaff. Take several units and watch dwarf opponent's face trying to catch them with slayers

    Well equipped minotaur warlord + druidism to heal him should kill any number of regular seekers.

    We had this discussion some time ago and the result was that 'it stacks' for -2 if you manage to find such sweet spot.

    It's Spanish meta. Of course you can find similar lists in other countries, but for example in Poland players have more varied lists. I will not play gortachs in following months for sure. Other units look much more interesting to me.

    You can have other things than cyclops to threaten horrors on range. Swarm of Insects, bows from mongrel raiders, TW from ambushing wildhorns. He has to come close to scream, so cyclops could hit on 4+ easily.

    Quote from Xarlie: “CIclops with 6W and Aegis5 can survive a little more but of course...a ciclop cant do the same than a gortach ” And Gortach can't do what Cyclops can. The mentioned Shrieking horror is a horror pairing for Gortach, but dream for cyclops. Actually you can take both 2x Gortach and 2x Cyclops I had such lists on WTC 2,5 years ago and it wasn't bad at that time (we got to semifinal). But it was many patches ago.

    Quote from Mirdhynn: “@Kolata @Ironrock You say that the list have to be built around cyclops to be effective. Can you tell us more ? What is the general concept to make them work fine ? ” My list with 3 cyclops included also many mongrel raiders, centaur with hawthorne curse and 2 adepts with magic missles (druidism+shamanism). In addition 2 blocks of minotaurs and minotaur BSB for head to head combat and 2x ambushing wildhorns with PW+TW for scoring. So it was sh!tload of mobile shots but also…

    Cyclops are really good for their points. They only suck in combat vs enemy heroes, monsters and unstompable things. But they threaten them (heroes and monsters) on range. Also, they can easily hold enemy hero or flying monster for 1 turn for countercharge thanks to monstrous rank. At the same time they are much more resilient than all other monsters we have. Versatility for good price is the key. If you have 3, some matchups turn from horrible to good. The biggest problem I found is that it's h…

    For last 1,5 year I've been playing triple cyclops with quite good results. Finally I took double Gortach for a big tournament in Poland last weekend. They got shot down in 4 out of 5 battles doing almost nothing (even though I had 2 Binding Scrolls and Druidism master). I played 2x ID, 2x VS, 1x DH. They go on shelf for another 1,5 years Do you have the same experience?

    Quote from sixfthoneybadger: “Quote from Kolata: “6 minimum, 7 optimum, 8 luxury ” Is that with or without Minotaur character. I like taking a minotaur warlord? So still same numbers? ” The same for me. Quote from Exalted Champion: “Quote from Kolata: “6 minimum, 7 optimum, 8 luxury ” Considering 7+character or 8 minos: formation = 4x2? Or better 3x3x2? ” Depends on matchup. For example vs KoE you go always 3x3x2. But if you need a screen, play vs many penetrating hits or simply calculate that t…

    Quote from clorens: “with navigator banner we impact 5+ ” Not all WL have this banner. And even if they have, minotaurs still hit MUCH better on 5+ re-rollable with battle focus than WL on 4+ (Minotaurs with parry). Also minotaurs have autohitting impact hits and stomps. All you need is 1 spell to win this combat easily.

    The best against white lions are charging minotaurs with shields. You get 1 good spell off (Black Wing totem or Stone Skin) and they completely destroy WL.

    Quote from SmithF: “Quote from Kolata: “I agree with you on some points, but what do you mean by 'Beastlord does the killing'? What is the build for beastlord on foot that makes him work for you? ” Beastlord, GW, LA, Destiny's Call, Blessed Inscriptions, Dragonfire Gem, Crown of Horns. It might be only 4 attacks, but rerolling everything means that you often get 3-4 kills even against tough foes. So the Wildhorns only need to tank a bit and you're winning the fight (and the grind, in the long ru…
