Has anyone thought about giving a supreme sorceress the sacrificial dagger and pear of infinite bleakness in a large warrior unit? you could really rack up the dice that way without worrying.

It's the reason some people refer to warriors as power dice or batteries.

Very simple and effective idea, you just need to be sure to take at least 30 warriors in the unit and keep them well guarded.

Is the Pearl a Talisman, or Enchanted Item? If it's competing in any way with the Pendant, then it's a bad build. A level 4 on foot in a unit of Warriors is a sitting duck to even the most basic of mage hunting tactics, especially since her spell options almost all require LoS.

So if you can take the Pendant, yes, it's a great idea. If not, then I'd think you're just asking for a clever opponent to kamikaze your lord right off the board.

Edit: Though an Assassin could be the answer. Yes, definitely with an Assassin.

Yes, that is 100% how you should run a sorceress or even a supreme sorceress. Then add a couple of Scrolls on her if you have the points. She can't have both the pendant and the pearl.

In all the games that i've played when using a magic heavy list is.

Lvl 4, Sacraficial Daggar, Pearl of Bleakness, 2x Scrolls.

A unit of 25 Spearmen, full command, war banner. Assassin. win.

My buddy even puts a BSB on a horse with the Pendant and Sword of might in that unit. You run them beside black guard, and 2 hydras.

That unit can definately swing a combat in your favor if it flanks an enemy unit that just got Black Guard in the face. It has 7 combat rez and is immune to psycology, coupled with a few fighty characters its a great build.

She actually doesnt die that much without the pendant, especially if you get a good soul stealer cast off.

From what I understand, some people do that with 1 level 2 sorceress and then add another with some scrolls for lots of fun - it's like magic heavy for 2 character slots!
