What are the most commonly seen deathstars?
I know all about the good ole Dark Elf Shadestar but I dont know much about the other races.
Ogre Tyrants with Tenderizer and another character in a unit of tough ogres.
Rhinox Riders can be pretty mean. I hit them in the rear with squigs and still lost.
Unit of 5 bloodknights and a vampire lord with some crazy magic banner that gives them +4 ward save I believe.
Thats right. Regen too isnt it?
One of my favorites is a unit of 7 maneaters with Brace of Pistols used as Dogs of War in a Dwarf army. Place a BSB with the banner that takes D6 inches off the charge and combine that with the anvil and you have a unit that can stand and shoot with 12 shots against a unit that might not even move when it declares a charge.
Another favorite Death Star for facing a unit that has alot of shooting is 4 Irongutz and 4 Characters. Shooting must be spread evenly across all the models then randomized. When your spreading the shots out over 8 models this unit can absorb alot of shooting and has been one what I have dealt with flamers.
ATM I am having about 20 Trolls made from my mushroom troll sculpts. I am thinking that I might try making them Stone Trolls (mostly for the magic Res) and then putting orc characters on Boars with them. Maybe support with Fast Cav, NG's with fanatics, and chariots. Might be about as hard as you can make a O&G army. <--- Pure Theorey
