Default What is your favourite spell?

Hi all,

The thread on favourite lores of magic got me thinking; if you could pick one spell to always take with you no matter which army you had, what would it be and why?

I think my favourite is probably The Bear's Anger; with such a low casting value and remain in play, the spell is fantastic as it increases attacks, strength and toughness on the target.

Bear in mind that we cannot discuss the spells in too much detail, so try to remain vague as everyone should have access to a rulebook at least, even if they donít it is easy enough to give an idea of what the spell does without numbers.

Curse of the lepper its great. Even if it gets dispelled the next turn it could create the oppotunity to be devastating.

Violence is never the answer, it is the question, to which the answer is, yes

Pit of Shades/ Flames of the Phoenix, both unit destroyers

Conflaguration of Doom, not because it's a great spell, but because I've been really really lucky with it on a few occasions. It's damage potential is low enough that it doesn't really draw out the scrolls, but if it keeps going it can wipe units out.

I'm with arhain, flames of the pheonix all the way, be it with a dedicated caster or just for a turn, its devastating. Brilliant!

=DDDDD. All the last spells of the Warriors of Chaos Lores. Each one of those has the potential to be a huge killer for units.

Slaanesh and Nurlge can do huge amounts of damage to T3 troops.

Tzeentch - psh, what troops? They're not there no more.

Yeah I love all the new Chaos spells but that one in the Tzeentch lores that kills units outright is just wickedly cool.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Even though I'm more likely to face this now than use it myself I've always likes the Plague spell from the Skaven list

The Oxen Stands is great as it helps me as a WE player so much as we aren't great in CC, but for any army it's good to have and once again low casting. Hey squeek maybe you should have one for best damage spell for all round situations and best strategic spell for all manner of scenarios.
