Hey guys im looking for some beastmen tactics, mostly against high armoured enemies. I know bestigors and minotaurs are useful but what if its an army of heavy armoured foes? My gors would be pretty worthless.

Check out the Beastmen Tactics Thread (http://www.warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=262618&highlight=Beastmen) or the Herdstone (http://z2.invisionfree.com/herdstone/index.php?act=idx)

But if there's nothing around there, or to save time, I would suggest taking a surplus of Minotaurs and the Beast Banner for a unit of Gor is considerable. Try casting Wyssan's Wildform as much as possible.
Also, the Lore of Shadows is suitable - Pit of Shades ignoring armour, and Okkams Mindrazor granting S7+ to your units.

Bestigors will do well as will Razorgors, and chariots, take a good amount of them.
So you might just want a unit or 2 of Gors, one with a Beast Banner BSB, a unit of Bestigor. Some Chariots, Razorgors and Minotaurs.

A Ghorgon wouldn't hurt either. But it depends on the points level.

Beastmen players should go to the herdstone


Gors would definitely be at a disadvantage. Use Ungors with handweapon/shield and chariots to fill out your core instead. Catch with the Ungor and pitch with the chariots.

Bestigor would be better than minotuars for can opening, although minotaurs aren't terrible at it. Perhaps a gorebull BSB with the rust totem in a unit of minos would be a nasty surprise for armored foes.

A half dozen throw away deployments would great for helping you set up your units to best engage your opponents units. Start with deploying small cheap units like hounds, raiders, spawn, individual razorgors etc, and hopefully your elite armored foe will have his battle line already deployed when you get to laying down your own blocks of infantry.

If you're not opposed to special characters Slugtongue can be a killer against expensive units.

bestigors, and any unit/character buffed by lore of beasts magic. signature spell on a unit of gors with beast banner makes them str 5 toughness 5 and that just chews anything if you consider the quite large amount of attcks and primal fury as does any character with savage beast with +3 attacks +3 str also with primal fury.

The Herdstone is a pretty solid collective wealth of information for any Beastmen player.

I would suggest people go there over discuss things on Warseer.
