View Full Version : lord affect on below 2k games?

17-06-2010, 15:56
With this new rule, who will use heroes as generals now? Is there any point in taking 2 lvl 2 mages over a lvl 4 mage in the new magic system (unless want 2 arcane items and spread out miscast results)?

So now all armies will be lead by their lord counterparts for the ld bonus? (I can see empire players taking archlectors on popmobile for their general even in 1k army lists or a slann in a 1.5k army list)

Doesn't this sorta destroy the balance of hero to troops since lords are very powerful?

IIRC you can only have a 25% max for lords as well as 25% for all lords/heros, so in a 1k army, you can only spend 250 for lords/heroes. Yeah you can bring a lord, but it's likely going to eat up a lot of that, leaving little to no room for additional characters.

What mrnibbles05 said. The lord would likely have no spare points for magic items/upgrades either.

A Vampire Lord is not very scary when he only has 45 pts to spend on items and upgrades.

I like the idea for a 1000pts game of a dwarf king and his last veterans for their last stand against thousand of enemies. Lords in small games are good for fluffy scenario IMO:D.

In 1000pts a chaos lord use almost all the 250 points for lords but he don't really need any magical stuff:D

I would actually like more baskets for my eggs, but maybe that's just me.
