View Full Version : Flying Monster Tactics Needed

21-06-2009, 03:14
Hello folks.

I'm looking to start running a Zombie Dragon in my Vampire Counts army. However, I've never run a flying monster, or even a walking one like a Carnosaur. So, my question for you: What is the best way to run an uber combat Lord on a flying monster? Playing conservatively and waiting until turns 3-5 to charge, or jumping out and killing things right from the get-go? Which way do you think would be most effective, in particular, for a Vampire Counts army?

I play WoC and use a Sorc lord on dragon every once in a while. The way I've had great success using him is to fly him behind enemy lines to make use of his terror within 6" while casting magic and the dragons breath weapons. When opportunities present themselves, I assist other units with a rear charge.

Dragons are expensive and combat beasts but I still prefer to pick my battles with him and charge only into combats I'm positive I'll win.

I should note that there are little to no gunlines in my group so I can help too much on that front.
