The blight of Evil continues to stain the land of Taltos. Heed the trumpet's clarion call to battle. Ride forth and lay waste to the encroaching darkness! May the light of Denelspire shine upon you and protect you from all that is wicked and evil brave knights.

Sacrificing minions: is there any problem it CAN'T solve?

... Pay no heed to proud thoughts, famous champion. Now the flowering of your strength is but for a while. After a while, the time will suddenly come that disease or the sword's edge will cut off your power. Either fire's grasp or flood's surge or blade's bite or spear's flight. Or vicious age, or the flash of your eyes will gutter and burn out! It will be all at once, great campaigner, that death will overpower you.

OK - I'm seeing a hole in the lineup here.

Battle nuns. There's a warlord, a unique captain, and soldiers. But there's no elites that I can find. Which is odd since the captain gets 2 elites. Are there elites that just don't have the nun designation?

No, there are no battle nun elites, and considering the number of models/datacards already in Crusaders, it really wasn't practical to add any either. However, although Finari is a Justicar by her fluff, I think she fits in just fine with the nuns. Further, you could just choose a couple of proxies from the DHL line, use whatever Crusader elite card for them that you want, and just give them a new name. Personally, I'd look at models like 2475 (use Marcus Gideon's card), 2725 (for Almarand), 3222 (for Valandil), 3364 (for Saramonde), 3273 (for Halbarad). I'm sure you could easily find others. ::):

We're running a campagne here after GENCON and I've got a unit of Battle Nuns that I'm proxying with several non Battle Nun models, ei ladies with 2 weapons, to this unit I attach Marcus Gideon.

What am I creating? A unit of Vampire Slayers and thier Watcher.

As usual, It's all about the back story.

Nice choices for proxies but personally I'd choose Justine Winterheart (3149) for Almarand , but lioke you said there are plenty to choose from .

I have become a big fan of the Doom Kitty in 2.0

I always loved the model, but never fielded it in previous incarnations because of its cost and durability.

Most likely, there was a SA cost change to one of the SAs that he has. which made him cheaper, and no one caught it.

But, the good news is that there are still plenty of leaders that can lead the justicars. And in turn, Broderick still has plenty of soldiers that he can lead as well.
