A generally accepted truth in Warhammer Fantasy is that Wizards are mandatory. I decided to make this thread to see if people still agree with that claim after seeing a couple of guys who both agree not to use magic battling out. One a Khorne Warriors Of Chaos player, the other an Orcs & Goblins player. They spent a while explaining how having just low end General in a bunker unit and a Battle Standard Bearer in their main strike unit, they would then instead spend the points most people spend on Wizards, Magic Items etc on more units. They claim the average 2500 point game will often have as much as 1000 points spent on characters, where as they never spend more than 300 claiming more than 10-15% of your army as characters is too much.
I'll post their army list at some point if I can get a copy of them. They both seem to think they're thinking more like generals where as everyone else is just being suckered into the glamour of magic, I'm not too sure and personally think they're underestimating magic. What about you guys, what do you think?
