Wanted your opinion on this list, I found this out myself before I ‘googled’ it (other search engines are available) and found other had thought of the idea and people have dismissed it as ‘not as intended’.
Ill be completely honest I’m 60/40 on it tbh. I can see both side and I’d love some constructive discussion, no hostility or what not.
So here goes:- the combo is
Tzaangor Icon Bearer - For every WIZARD friend or foe within 9” you have that many dice and on a 4+ a mortal wound is dealt to a unit within 18”. On its own quite poor, however mix it with.
Pink Horrors - Key word WIZARD.
Therefore a large unit of 40, all within 9” (not sure if it’s possible but I think it is), 40 dice, 4+’s, that many mortal wounds to a single unit.
Mix them and suddenly it quite powerful.
I believe that this is more models in range too, so if only half your massive pink horror unit is within 9” then only 20 dice would be rolled you can’t daisy chain or whatever from how I’m reading it, it mentions nothing about unit just for ever Wizard.
The arguement comes when you say that no matter how many in the unit it can only cast 1 spell, however if there is only 1 left it’s still 1 spell, and is specifically states only 1 spell. However I do catch their drift.
Last thing (promise):-
with the armies I’m seein at the sharpe end of the spectrum, I feel have as much if not more ‘gimmicks’ than this and as I’m sure all of you whom have read this far, when you build a list you also see what could be your ‘Achilles heel’ and cause you issues and I’ve found a few.
With the whole ‘As intended’ argument, the Battle Brew, unit champ as general, to name a few, was clearly not as intended however it was continued until the new generals handbook when it was changed.
Thanks for reading this far and please leave a message/reply and please if there is FAQ or a different thread please link it.
