Hello everyone !
Between the army book release next week, the new white dwarf and the solid rumours on some rules, I was suprised that a Tactica thread had not appeared for the VC's yet! So, here it is, unless the mods deem me unworthy to start such a thread.
Until we get out claws on the new book, all we have at the moment it 'solid' rules from rumours and the white dwarf. But I guess people are starting to form ideas of the sort of theme/playstyle they want to achieve with the new book. I for one am happy that there is multiple playstyles available, rather than the boring GG, Ghouls and whatever else combo.
One topic that I thought would be quite interested to start with it the Ghouls. I want to boil it down to two points:
*How many units of Ghouls will people be using?
*Are people going to still use hordes, or smaller units of Ghouls?
Now, what I've heard is that they are getting a points increase to 5 Skavenslaves. Now, I don't mind that, as they were quite effective for their points value (some may argue rather too efficent for the points cost!), but will this cause people to take less of them and use more skeletons, or take the points increase and stick with 2 Ghoul hordes?
I think I will keep one horde of Ghouls as they are quite effecient especially with buffs from the Mortis Engine and the Corpse Cart. But this leads me on to my other point, what should the unit size of Ghouls be in the new book? Well, I guess that people will still use a Horde or two of them, as they are more effective and easier to buff, but I think smaller units of 20 can have their place as line fillers or giving a little extra punch to Skeleton Warriors.
They're my thoughs, and hopefully, this thread will live on until the next VC book!
