View Full Version : Orc Cavalry Army ideas..help

23-03-2008, 00:54
I am considering do an Orc Fantasy Army modeled after Speed Freaks.

Sounds weird, but I needed some rule clarifications.

Can Rare Unit slots be used as Special Unit slots?

Also, thinking of a nice mix between wolf gobbos and boar boys along with some chariots.

Starting with 1000 pts to try it out....any help would be great

Err, no, you can't use rare units as special units.

Actually, I think the OP means can special units be chosen to fill rare slots.

I don't know of anything canon from GW on this, but we allow it in my group, since usually rares are more powerful than specials. We don't allow HE to do this, since they have 10 slots IIRC from specials and rares in their new book at 2k points.

no you can not, rare is rare, special is special. So take a giant or some trolls or pump wagons, they are all reasonably fast..

A mounted list is doable though.

Our Lords and Heroes can ride Boars, Wovles, Wyverns, Chariots, Giant Cave Squigs and Gigantic Spiders.

We have Wolves and Spiders as Core.

Boar Boyz, Savage Orc Boar Boyz, Chariots and Squig Hoppers as Specials.

Pump Wagons as Rare.

Go for it!! :D
