View Full Version : Marauder horsies?

Heya. Given the options, when fighting night gobbos, what would you take? three regiments of 5 marauder horsemen or 2 regiments of 6?

any leftover points will be spent on marauders.

2 of 6 is probably good, but use the leftovers to get hounds, very useful in springing out those fanatics, and nobody really cares when they die.

Why is 2 of 6 better? :p

My plan is to use them to deny rank bonus. I need a unit strength of at least 5 correct? 5 horsemen will be unit strength 10? If I lose one I still have us 8.

Or am I just talking a load of crap?

2 of 5 with Flails and Musician, then 3 units of 5 Warhounds to release fanatics

I've never used more than two units of 5, but the choices you gave were 3 units of 5 or two units of 6, so I went with the latter. 2 units of five and two units of hounds would serve you quite well against Night Gobbos.

Awesome. Never considered warhounds but they would fit in with my Germanic barbarian theme (using actual historical minis)

Pretty much Neknoh has said everything. but it depends on how many gobbos unit u are playing.i wouldn't go for marauders at all as they dont even gain rank and out number bonuses. if u are limiting the choses to M horsmen only, than take more of them with flais. Though i think warriors with additional hand weapons will finish the mquick when the fanatic have been release totally. will be good to finish the

Are you going with a unit of Chaos warriors with great weapons to represent your jarls (huscarls, karls however you want to say it/spell it?) They would certainly fulfill that roll as the elite of the tribe.

Heh, think 1st century so pretty much all basic warriors and cavalry. Though I was tempted to throw in a few warriors. I have a massive wab army of germanics but I am painting a new load up in khorne-esque colours with whfb weapons and they look really great. I'll have to get some piccies up tommorow.

As for wether or not the army works..... I dunno. I think mainly I am about how the army looks and its theme, which is: "Non-evil northern tribe that worships a bloodbeast of khorne as a god"
