Frostheart Pheonix.

In a game this evening he took down a K'Daii Destroyer and a Hellcannon, and swung into position to charge some Infernal Guard in the rear (though we ran out of turns). In that time he took just 1 wound.

Yeah YEAH.

Oh, and I lost the game. :p

Who is your MVP?

Changes from game to game but usually the peg rider dreadlord.
dark pagasus
whip of agony
dragon helm
pendant of khaleth
black dragon egg

I usually point him at the thing from the other army that I most dont want to fight (usually a monster, other combat lord or MC unit) and he takes care of them.

My generic BSB Noble. Normally mount him on a Griffon. The Griffon was shot out from under him, then the WAAC dwarf opponent proceeds to fire three cannons a turn at the noble who is either missed or wards out of each hit (on a 6+ ward). The tunnel vision rage wins me the game as that noble merges up with a PG unit, before being shifted into my spearmen horde.

The center which was weak after having lost Allariele got bolstered with the BSB in there, and we proceeded to collect beards as my secondary level 4 kept on dropping mindrazor on those spear men. The cannon were handled by reavers that he ignored in his tunnel vision rage. Dwarf lines quickly collapsed. Game goes to turn 7, with no Dwarves not running.

Didn't mention the white lion chariot and the bolt throwers that were just playing mary hobb with his dudes.

My smaller units with scouting and vanguarding Maneaters.

Always a thorn in the opponent's side and they have swept several gunlines off the table (a win-win situation so to speak).

Usually when I win it's thanks to my throwaway wolfriders who did something to help me win or save me from losing. They usually die in the process, but I'd have lost if they hadn't been there, so they still get all the credit :p And they occasionally kill something absurd with their five poor little bows (like an ogre, or a aspirant champion who felt totally safe on his own near them).

Bretonnian Lord with the Virtue of Heroism (Heroic Killing Blow), its either eternal glory of death.
I've had people feel anxious when their Nurgle Daemonprince faces this Human Lord and laugh their ass off when the Lord actually pulls off Killing Blow or misses completely.

Best time was a failed impetious test charging a unit of Knights errant into a unit of Skaven with the Bless. My knights break, only the champion and the Lord alive. They rally and charge in again, Lord doesn't take it and with a single hit cuts down a vital support beam, crashing the whole thing to the ground. Next round he and his buddy survive and flee of the board having done their Knightly charge.

I know this is a cheesy one but my Deamon Prince of Nurgle hasn't died yet in 5 games of playtesting. He's killed a 12 Grail Knights, 2 Warshpixs, a Stegadon, bastiladon, All kinds of warmachines, Grimgor, Pegasus Knights, Saurus Warriors, Casket of Souls, Anvils.

This guy is a meat shredder and extremely hard to kill. Last game he got charged by a Stegadon and then a Bastiladon. He was down to his last wound. Then he tore into the Bastiladon and gained them all back. Ya some lucky rolls on my part but he didn't die!!!

My Giant - best monster ever, always does something each game even if that is just dying! Seen the guy walk up to a Nurgle Daemon Prince and thump him dead with a club, he thumped a Star Dragon dead, screamed and shouted to kill THREE Vanpires, stuffed an unkillable DreadLord down his pants, jumped up and down on Chaos Warriors, died next turn and fell on them - 40 Warriors dropped to less than 16 after 2.5 rounds!

For my beadtmen, my level 4 great bray shamen. Beast magic, Steel claws, jagged dagger, 4+ ward. WS5, T5, Savage beast, wyssans, hatred and strength 5-8 depending on how good my magic is and every model he kills becomes a power dice next turn...many games have been turned by this bad boy.

My Black Orcs, usually accompanied by the Black Orc Warboss. Dead killy, tough, and of course never run away. The Warboss sometimes charges off on his own to deal with big beasties or tough characters.

More than a few times a Stegadon is stomping through my Orc Boyz until the Warboss comes over and thwacks it in a round or two of combat. "Do I hafta do ever'ting misself?!"

I only just had my first game with my OnG (even though I've had them painted for 3 or so years) on the weekend. Took double giants against ogres and they killed it. One of them thumped an ironblaster to death, the other one held up a unit and kept 'eadbutting a firebelly until they broke and got run down. The ironblaster one also helped yell and ball a couple times to hold out a multi combat when my night goblins general's night gobbo bus got charged by my opponents generals unit which was seeing me lose far too many goblins a turn for my liking of holding normally (even with a crown of command in there).

Maybe it was a random one off great game but from all the hate giants were getting on the net I was expecting them to do nothing ( they did take wounds from weak things like gnobblars though)

For consistency I'd have to say my humble Men at Arms, sacrificing themselves battle after battle to defeat the enemy through sheer frustration (or should it be the obligatory Damsel + Icon...), and even the occasional bout of "angry peasants" (Wyssan's + nearby Tower of Blood, that was interesting...).

My Knights Errant are currently at the top of the "overachiever list" though, played against a Chaos army the other day with a pair of chimeras, one of the khorne chariots, some warriors and some knights. Just about everything bounced off their targets until around turn 4 (my opponent was rolling ward saves like crazy on the chimeras, and I had some absolutely comical hit/wound sequences), when the KE finally worked around from the far edge they had to start on to charge a chimera... eat it, overrun into a chariot that was supposed to hold them up for a turn and proceed to work their way through about half the chaos army (much of which broke and escaped, but still... they had something like 5 fights in a row at charge strength and managed to hit for once)!

BSB Exalted Hero of Tzeentch on Disc with Talisman of Pres, re roll ward saves of 1, Halberd. Single handidly won me games, and I use him regularly as a war machine hunter, tying up warmachines by turn 2 is always a massive plus. He's got a good combat res because he's generally always charging, and has a BSB. Not overly afraid to send him after big units solo.

In my game last night it happened to be 25 Skinks in horde formation (leftover from 34 Skinks and 3 Kroxigors). They were charged by 18 Boar Boy Big Uns, held for a couple rounds of combat as their Kroxigors got killed off. The final round of combat the Skinks killed 5 Boar Boys, only took 2 casualties in return and chased down the Orcs :-) Priceless.

For Skaven its typically my doomwheels. I always run two and they rarely disappoint me. Even if they don't kill anything, they are always entertaining.

For Empire it's peg captains hands down. At 2400 and up I run three of them with various kit and they have won me countless games.

After every win I've had with my Empire the usual conclusion tends to be that no unit did particularly well or particularly badly... everything usually slouches through win good old human averageness and wins games. (well except in a few exceptions where flaggies goes bonanza..)

Uh, and for VC it's the Corpse Cart... it's actually been called "beardy" a few times now...how about that..

If I were to count all my games since I started about 20 years ago I'd say my Chaos Knights are my mvp unit, however I don't use them in 8:th edition any more due to skullcrushers & trolls being much better point for point.

I've only played 3 games since the WoC book was released, & in those my hounds have been the mvp unit.

Goblin great shaman on Aracharok spider. In my mine i pay the extra points to get a spider in the lord slot that can dispell for a few more points. However that shaman olle Nik-Knack. has been the end of many a unit in combat. Last game, HE not the spider finish off a carnasaur and it's rider, then they flanked a unit of saurus and he combined with the lvl 1 shaman on foot to kill it's scar vet in combat, He then charged the remains of a temple guard unit and put the last wound on the slaan himself. I swear he is the combat muscle of my O&G army. That makes me both proud and very sad.

Speaking of miscasts, I've always felt that in 8th at least the requirement for a lance to surround a Prophetess/Damsel is less about protecting the Favored of the Lady and more about punishing those knights who allow their faith to wane and fail to seek the Lady's Blessing...

an avg of 70 or so shots to wound, oh well ill fire my shot.

she hits
rolls 6 to wound
tank fails its 1+ save causing it to lose its first wound
the next turn the engineer didnt spot the critical weakness in the boiler had been hit, the tank explodes
nearby statetroops are heavily damaged in the blast
a unit of greatswords are almost wiped out.

The blessing was strong and in full effect although doesn't compensate for appalling rolls such as the time I lost 4 knights to a goblin bolt thrower.

Just started taking an Wizard Lord LvL 4 on Death mounted on a Pegasus and with a Power Stone.

Last game I played against VC he whizzed around the flanks Purple Sun'ing Ghouls, Crypt Horrors & Zombie hordes to death all the while generating tons more Power Dice to continue to fling Death Snipes at the Vampire and Spirit Hosts.

Was the first time I've really seen a Death Wizard go absolutely mental!

Still lost the game though!

In 3000pt+ games, my "Tank" horde unit of 40 MoT Chaos Warriors with Hand Weapon, Shields, Full Command and Razor Standard is always my MVP. Smack bang in the centre of my line (or anchoring a whole flank by themselves), basically daring anyone to charge in and try to shift them and the arc of control they have over the 12+ inches around their position.
Nowhere near the most shiny thing in my list, but without them, the rest of my army would fail to function.

Haven't played with the new Warriors book but in the old one it was my extra Exalted hero. He carried the Book of Secrets which could make him a lvl 1 Shadow mage which I used to get Miasma (Love that spell) and also swapping places with him and my Sorc lord if the sorcerer got threatend from something, like a big monster or a fighty lord.

Hillariously this Exalted would then go a head and whoop what ever was threatning the sorcerer. He killed Stegs, Slaans (With full temple guard followings), grail knights, Blood Knights, tooled up warrior lords from almost every race, dragons, Shaggoths and Archaon himself (probably an imposter...;)) .

Towards the end of the books reign people just left my Sorcerer lord alone if the exalted was within 18".

Probably the one thing I miss the most from the old book... Okay I miss a lot of things...

Units of 8-10 Leadbelchers. I have 24 in total, and they always pay for themselves either in shooting, or in clubbing things to death. They also have a massive psychological impact upon most opponents. I never leave the Mountains of Mourn with out at least one unit.

Historically for my Dogs of War, it would have to be my Duelists. WS4 I4 skirmishers with pistol and hand weapon, they have put real hurt on things in the past, but more commonly then that they do what skirmishers do, and save my line. For the rest of the army, although I have only ever killed ONE THING with it, my Cannon is great. i would love it if the Hot Pot could pull something off, but it never has.

In my recent games, my GW armed Ogres, a unit of 6-8, combined with some light cav and running interference and Cannons, they are pretty much the one thing that gives me a chance against my buddies Demons.

It costs 6 Spearmen without shields.

It's difficult to name one model or unit as an MVP for Empire. Not even the Stank usually falls into that category, most of the stuff works together in an elaborate fashion (or not and then it goes down from there). Captasus comes close and Pistoliers. TGM with Runefang is usually nice, too but much improved with a Hurri, as are DGK. I think the Hurri is usually a staple in my lists.

He pulls his guitar out of hammer space, plays an a minor chord, and chariots explode. The awesome thing was, I just barely hit the casting value.
