Drog's Dead 'Ard Armour was great, it actually let you have a survivable Warboss. Of course now they took it out of the general Orc list and only Grimgor can 'ave it.

The Sword of Sigismund is also nice and scary.

I like the Master Rune of Steel, preferrably on a suit of gromril armor.

No hits on you over S5 count as being over S5.

That's nice.

Banner of butchery, just so orky
Me too.

Pete Haines once described it as "the disturbingly-named Banner of Butchery" and as far as I'm concerned anything that freaks out Pete Haines is a powerful magic item indeed.

money no object? Banner of the Lady (negates enemy rank bonus). hands down.

on a budget? Birthsword of Carcassone (+1S, reroll successful armour saves) or the grail shield (rider and monstrous mount get 4+ward)

Got to be the Banner of Valour, for an Empire unit to not have to worry about Panic (especially Greatswords with your General) is priceless.

Hail of doom arrow, hands down

Turned so many battles for me its a must take.

3d6 S4 magic arrows at wood elf lord balistic skill?

Hell yes. Can't remember how many points it is now, prob 25. Used to be 15 i think at one point. - Best devastation vs points easily.

Book of Hoeth. "You've got how many dispel scrolls? Really? Oh look, a double. To bad." Lovely.

If I could figure out how to make my Lord survive missile fire, it would be the Null Stone. All those tasty magic items on the opponent's Lord suddenly useless? YES PLEASE!

Since that does not work as well as I would like, I am working on a character killer using the Talisman of Saphery.

Talisman of Saphery and Forlaith's Robe is a funny combo. You then challenge your opponent's lord who now cannot hurt you.

This doesn't work if your opponent had a champion in his unit.

I quite like the good old war banner really. It always finds a place in my lists.

Ooh, tough call...
For facing basic troops its got to be the Bane shield. Chaos lord on a barded chaos steed and with the Bane shield. 1+ armour save and for every armour save you pass in CC the enemy takes a St 4 hit. handy against all sorts of foes.

EDIT: Considering the number of character battles me and my friends have, Shaga's Screaming Sword is fun.

+1 strength and attack per enemy hero/lord within 6''?

The record has been and extra 16 strength and attack. Thats just tasty.

For high elfs book of hoeth rearly good for a magic army like elfs. For batonnia banner of the lady, makes you all most certain that you will brake the unit you charge
