20-09-2011, 00:38
i have 3 possible units to place my BSB in.(Nurgle/Mono-God).

Palanquin, SoC, Dawnstone, Ironcurse Icon, Dragonhelm, Shield

WoC x18 - Halberds, FC, Banner of Rage - drop to 14 to keep 6x3 formation.

WoC x20 - Shields, FC, Razor Standard - 6x4 formation (currently 5x4)

Marauders x30 - FC, LA, Shield, - Drop to 26, 6x5/10x3 formations.

Which unit would be better to put him in?
Thanks in advance

Do you want him to be fighting or staying alive? If you just want the re-rolls, I'd say bunker him in the Marauders and move them up behind your smashy units of Warriors. What other Characters do you have, BTW?

Still working on complete list, atm has a lvl 4 sorcerer and possibly a lvl 2, both MoN

If you are considering a level 2 Nurgle Sorc and can take a special, consider Festus? A 5 man front with FC and your BSB puts him in the back rank, he always gets curse of the leper making your BSB harder to wound due to strength nerf and regen, don't think the poison works with a magic weapon though. And your enemy will love that dragonhelm if he starts focusing his limited flaming attacks on you "oh lol I got a dragonhelm taking up half the front rank btw".
Kinda cheesy character in 2nd rank but eh, you can't really call cheese on a mono-nurgle army I think they will be thankful to not see 3+ ward saves all over.

@ Trustey - that is an absolutely awesome idea, very cheesy and a lot of points in 1 unit but could be worth a try, if only for laughs... especially when you factor in fear and armour piercing/frenzy

As new as 8th edition. They're in the rulebook.

are they items for any army to use or does it supply different items for each army to choose from?
