Hi guys,

 

As I totally love the fluff of neave Blacktalon I've bought her and now want to build an army around her.

 

What is best way to go about this?

 

I've a mix of warrior chamber and sacrosacnt chamber currently as  well as some hunters. Happy to pick a few more models up if required.

 

 

only the faithful

Hi,
I used to play Neave in a fun Vanguard Chamber Army. She is such a great dynamic model. The idea was to get the most out of her “Blacktalon Shadowhammers” Battalion. With +1 to hit and +5”move in the hero phase. But the battalion seems to not be valid anymore. 
Thus making her imho useless. Especially if you consider building an army around her - there are no synergies. I would rather add her as a regular Zephyros to an army and give her an artefact (Eg. sword of judgement: Hero Killer) Its also 20pts cheaper.

But probably gone in ghb 2020

@BryJDee, I love the model as well. 
but making Her much more than a 5 wound hero hunter is difficult. 
 

some things that might help do that. 
- knight heraldor gives run and charge. 
- PRIEST stormcast can teleport her through the translocation prayer. 
- Palladors of course to run in the slipstream of.

something out of the box. Have you thought about living cities?

That way you keep the her narrative really going 😁

that way you can move, shoot, command ability move, charge. With a heraldor you can add a run in there as well. 

add a knight Azyros, (or was it a Venetor in the stories?🤔) that synergies well with the shooting units in cities as well. 

you can get a branchwraith in there as well, just like the story. Add a tree lord ancient so it can summon a wild wood, then the branxhwraith can add 10 dryads every turn as well. 

Maybe even convert the cities unit to be a bit more barbaric. Big beetles as demogryph knights. 

all in all, I do agree with Milano, that it’s impossible to make her a true  Powerhouse. 
but man can you make a true to the story army. 🔥

You could drop her in with Gavriel Sureheart, you can't shoot, but you're guaranteed a charge with 8 attacks at 2 damage each. Not convinced it works better than dropping evocators instead, unless you are lacking points. 

Alternative is using a knight-heraldor to allow her to run + shoot + charge, but effective threat range is only ~18'. 

Windrider seems like a trap to build around as she can't melee the round she comes in.

You want to pair her with the vanguard palladors since she can ride their special move.   You want to make sure to put a pallador body in between her and whatever you are aiming to melee, so she doesn't get attacked first, then let her counter attack
