mooseyjoe Posted October 24, 2005 Share Posted October 24, 2005 I like to use the "loose swarm" technique against cavalry. have all your grunts in a loose group waiting for the cavalry. when they get there tey will have a tendency to only be able to attack a few of these loosely grouped grunts. Now that they are here and it is your turn it is time to swarm them. If you really try you can put 8 models on a cavalry base. This pretty much means that you have an auto kill (wouldn't recomend actually filling up all 8 locations. Your last 4 or 5 grunts out of the eight would be better used killing something else). another trick is the solo trap. Choose a 50 point solo oe elite, preferably with a larger than normal base (river trolls seem to fit the bill perfectly for me) and one of those 45-50 point mages all the factions seem to have. lastly take a firestorm (not the ball, take the storm, it is sooooo much more spell for the extra 25 points). Charge your big solo towards the cavalry (or skeletons, goblins, crimson knights, bondslaves, etc.) when he gets there the enemy will have to swarm him to kill him quick, or face being picked off one at a time by this big solo that just attacked their ranks. Once they are surrounding your big boy (he will probably be dead at this point) let 'em have it with that firestorm you brought into range earlier. This is one of the most effective ways to crispify a whole troop at a time, especially since a wise opponent will have avoided formations since that is just asking for a fireball.
