Hmmm why would you not take them as a squad of at least three? Seem like a good harassment.

Two reasons:

 

1) Each additional troop adds an Initiative Card. Extra initiative cards can be both a blessing and a curse, depending on how you use them, and what you opponent does. If you already have 3 leader-led troops, you could instead bring 3 gargoyles as 3 solos, boosting your deck to 6 cards instead of 4.

2) You can only bring one such Band of any given datacard in an army. Thus, if you wanted to bring anything more than 6 gargoyles, you would have to bring the additional ones as solos.

 

I do, however, happen to agree with the idea that a small Band (3-4 models) of a datacard that is normally a solo can be very effective.

Also, if you play a 500 pts game a lone Gargoyle with its DR/1 can be very effective... It's good to have the option...

Hello guys - Quick question about Judas's vampire SA. Does he regain two tracks every time he feeds as a free action or does the model he feeds on need to have fearsome for this to happen? Thanks.
