View Full Version : Plague wind

I was just wondering what would be the best place for the spell on the battlefield?
I would also like to know if anyone tried it with the large template?

I used it in a game against Warriors of Chaos with the large template. Managed to kill a handful of blokes, but not that many. The opponents miscast the following turn did far more damage than the plague wind did...

If you can use it against something with lower stats (either lower to start with, or reduced by other spells) then maybe it's pretty good.

Try using it on Toughness 3 Knights. They don't like that :P

Edit: meant toughness ^^;

plauge wind is pretty much going to travel pretty far because the minum is 8 and max is 40 if the caster is a level 4.

How many dice should u roll for 25+ with a level 4?

For a 25 casting you should toss 6 dice.

Its awesome if you can get up a skaven players flank, or even elves. Personally i hardly ever use it, I prefer the easier to cast spells like Rancid (Rancid visitations is awesome), as I only roll festus with LoN and hes in a very slow CW unit who really wont have a way to maximise its effectiveness. You could try it on a winged prince, I had my prince fly up a flank and demolish most of an undead army with purple sun the other day. I assume PW will do the same to low toughness armies.

Rancid visitations is very good but I wish it had longer range than 18.

First time I cast it I rolled it along a Dark Elf crossbow line and killed 25, my opponent wanted to quit; it was the first turn! Against certain armies and tactics it is unbelieveably good.

It's a decent spell, but when combined with curse of the leper it is spectacular, especially when sent through your opponent's biggest and best unit.
