Now that the Balewind is pointed and not frowned upon so much I was thinking of taking it my Destruction list to Blood & Glory.
The list I've been playing is based around getting Foot of Gork off, I'd love to come back with some great stories of it stomping things to death.
So far I've been running 2 shamans surrounded by boyz (+2 to cast), but it's just not working. At first I had 2 attempts to get it off per turn, but no longer.
I haven't managed to get it to go off for the last 5 games!
So I was thinking of dropping the 2nd Shaman and paying for the Balewind. +2 from the boyz and +1 from the Balewind should improve my chances. Would now cast on 7+.
However, my boyz can't be within 3" of the Balewind so I'm gonna struggle to get them in, they have to be within 10" of the Shaman when he casts.
Would I measure this? From the base of the Balewind (that's not too bad) or from the Shaman model himself? if so, diagonally? Along and up? (that would make it not worth using for this plan).
This also raises the question, when casting a spell from on top of the Balewind, would you measure from the shaman model of the base of the Balewind? Less worried about this, but I guess the same answer should apply to both yes?
I'm mainly interested in running this for Blood & Glory so I guess if it's not clear, it's however Ben thinks it should be..
