I don't see why not. It's a massive points sink and I wouldn't take it in anything below 2500 but chuck him with 5 Minotaurs and that's one unstoppable unit.

Is it? doesn't he lose the look out sir after 1 Mino dies? then die to a cannon/stone thrower etc. No ward right?

Prob pretty good against other opponents but not so much against war machine ones.

That or you need a larger unit, ogres at least get LOS rolls from having just 3 ogres in the unit.

No pain no gain.

He may die on the way in from a lack of a look out sir roll.

But you know what that's an excuse to get more minotaurs YEAH.

And the one time he does hit will be soooooo satisfying all the pain and anguish will be worth it.

where is the written proof for this? I was in the belief that you needed at least 5 of them as well?

Off the top of my head I am pretty sure it is under the heading "look out gnoblar" on the page for ogre bulls. Don't have an exact page number as I don't have the book handy, Take a look.

Ok so you need to take more minos to keep the guy alive, but won't 6 minos already kill everything!

And doesn't that guy cost the price of about 6 minos? I reckon 6 Minos would look cooler on the battlefield and would do better.

Vsurma you are indeed correct, it's an uppgrade and rules are described on page nr 29... thank you :)

Oh God yes. OP, if you see a lone mage charging you, run. He has the speculum, you will die,

I've heard about this guy. Some people call him the "Rambo" Doombull if I recall correctly.

Seems like he'd be good in combat but you'd really have to watch out for shooting, magic and a few nasty items.

I don't like that he doesn't have a wardsave and seems like kind of a point sink but Im sure he'd be fun to try out.

I think Mino units can be easily exploited though with thier blood greed pursue rule.

Your much better off with Pumba's as god aweful as they look model wise :)

Shadow-Hide does nothing if he's in a unit, and this bull isn't kitted to run solo. Lose that.

On top of cannonballs, having no ward save and Ld 8 makes Death magic pretty annoying. And even if you spring for 5 ablative woundsnaked minotaurs (275 points), the second cannonball still isn't going to give you a LOS.

Though, one cute trick is to take 3 minotaurs with champion and musician, give the charmed shield to the champion, and deploy 2x2. If you stand the bull behind the champion, charmed shield likely stops the first cannonball intended to smack your bull, and then the champion has a 4/9 chance of surviving the second one (which causes it to stop before it hits the bull).
