aircrew0 Posted March 1, 2007 Share Posted March 1, 2007 Lets keep it friendly guys. Mods have the Last Say SA and I'd just assume we not have to use it. sorry guys i wasn't trying to incite anything just trying to point out how strong and effective the troop is and can be I wasn't being offended. I thought aircrew0 was making some valid points. Did I miss something EE? You are correct, aircrew0: they do have 2 attacks each at a 3. If you can manage to pull off the charge (with musician it's 11 inches ), then you do have a chance of killing off something with First Strike. The trick, then, is to not charge anything you want to face a Defensive Strike from. Example: Mossbeard. Your entire troop of Berserkers better charge in there (with Insane!, no problem! ) and not miss. Mossy has DV 14. You would need 5 Berserkers just to get a MAV 7 (including Support bonuses). Wow. But, you would have 10 attacks, so chances are high you would do at least 3 wounds. The bad thing is Mossy has 5 wounds. That means you'll probably lose one Berserker, and maybe have a wound on a second. Then, Mossy activates and kills the wounded Berserker, and potentially wounds a third. Granted, the 2 and half Berserkers remaining should be able to take out Mossy at that point, I see a third Berserker dying with a fourth potentially wounded. 5 Berserkers x 66 pts. ea. = 330 pts. Mossy = 261 pts (with no spells). Assuming everything goes as I said, Mossy killed 3 Berserkers for a total of 198 points, and wounded a fourth (call it 33 points). That's a total of 231 points. Hmmmm... Wild Bill True in that situation they might not pay out to well but that happens sometimes but a nice little setup i would think would be say 3 or 4 berserkers mixed with a troop of shield maidens or regular warriors with a cleric to heal up the berserkers your regular troops can base other regular troops just have some attack then swing the berserkers around to do a first strike attack on 3 or 4 models the ones you wouldn't attack with your regular troop they get support and would be very effective since you would have 2 ma at a 4 or 5 depending on support and would be brutal against smaller solos/elites/leaders as you just have the berserkers attack and no one else but base with as many figs as you can lots of support and 6 attacks all with first strike ehh that is just a horrible thought Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
