I'm surprised that you haven't taken a good amount of damage from a runed up grudge thrower or 2 as their attacks are then considered magical. Granted, not the most accurate way of dealing w/ them, but GTs w/ the right runes are a bit more accurate than the average stone thrower.

Cheaper and easier option is to just fire a couple of runed bolt throwers at them... IMO a good dwarven gunline should have a couple of bolt throwers with either flaming or +1S. S7 bolt throwers are actually pretty solid and who doesn't love a quick pincushion to rob a whole unit of regen prior to slamming it with thunderers/organ guns/etc... and you get to kill a couple of wraith or other ethereal stuff as a bonus.

Does giving a magic banner that adds an effect to the units weapon make them magical? Like Banner of eternal flame?

No it doesn't. It just makes them flaming attacks

Magical attacks:

Magic
Magic Weapons
ethereals/daemons/forest spirits
dwarves with runes on their weapon/gun/artillery piece
yhetees
Chaos Knights with enchanted weapons
HE in a unit with amulet of light
augment spells- flaming sword of rhuin, enchanted blades of aiban

... and a few other random abilities/items for specific armies (such as venom of the firefly frog for lizards), I also expect I'll have missed a few.

Ok,regardless of their single attack,30 point cost,vulnerability to magic missiles or 5-10 unit size...Should you ever buy a couple of Black Knights/Hexwraiths boxes,consider this simple conversion work:

-cut the heads of the skeletal horses
-cut the riders off at the torso
-cut off the rider`s heads (optional)
-attach the torso to the horse`s neck joint to form a centaur like thingie
-attach the skeletal horse heads to the rider`s neck...

...look familliar? (+1 to whomever "gets it") I know I will make a few of these.

OK....You got me stumped Ultor for some reason that comment gives me a "Army of darkness" feeling but that is the only thing I can think of.



So I am growing my enemy.....so what I gotta kill something.

^^ Nobody here plays Warmachine?




like this,but with a skeletal horse head (if you wish,or regular human skull)

In other news,still waiting for a Vampire Counts armybook that contains a headless Wight horseman hero,for character-killing purposes (Sleepy Hollow style).Man,that would be so cool...
