So I was looking through the GHB and saw that Gors and Ungors are really cheap battleline. Got me wondering if they were a viable option in tournament play. Then I read the rules for the Wildstalker Brayherd battalion and I had some thoughts. Could you build a strictly objective-minded army around brayherds? In other words, could you build an army that simply floods objectives and wins on points? So I started tinkering with a list... Wildstalker Battallion 140 Beastlord 80 General, Crown of Conquest, Cunning Deceiver Bray Shaman 100 Crown of Conquest Bray Shaman 100 Bray Shaman 100 Gors 240 30 Gors 240 30 Gors 240 30 ungors 120 20 ungors 120 20 ungors 120 20 ungors 120 20 Bestigors 140 10 Bestigors 140 10 Total Points 2000 Number of models 194 The idea is to bring the battalion so you have some flexibility with ambushes (as I understand it you don't have to deploy the whole army in ambush mode) but also lets you deploy your entire army in one drop. You use the incredible speed of the brayherds (6" base, extra 2" if near a shaman) to get into the objective zone early. Now, the battalion also lets you take an additional artifact, so you double up on the crown to keep battleshock loses to a minimum. General gets Cunning Deceiver to help mitigate early loses to shooting. This army is not designed to to win combats. It's designed to be a flood that the enemy can't burn down fast enough before turn 5. The issue is, if you don't win on objectives you would be assured a minor loss from kill points. I'm not sure if the Ungors should be all at minimum unit size (this would still fit in the formation). I need to think on that more...
