you have spent 2 many points on heroes and the thing now is bigger units are beetter at the moment your warriors are 2 small and knights are meh in the new rules as anything with more ranks than you is stubborn try take 30/40 chaos warriors with halberds so then you get full attacks 4 the first rank and 1 attack from the second rank and third if your 10 wide a chaos lord with sheild and sword of might is doable 2 basically in 8th you can spend upto 25% lord same hero min25% core upto 50% special no more than 3 of the same untill 3k and upto 25% rare no more than 2 the same untill 3k

y would you field 40 chaos warriors in one unit? thats just stupid and very immoble for the most part. also the mark of slaanesh is not all that good either. your ld 8 anway your not going to break or fail any fear/terror checks. Id take the mark of tzeentch because of with the new rules on hand weapon and shield its a 6+ ward with the mark it becomes a 5+ ward.

because bigger units are going 2 be the norm 10 wide 4 deep meaning you churn out a nice 41 attacks from the unit all at s5 with halberds meaning your opponent is not likely to be stubborn

that takes the fun out of the game now. 41 attacks? Your really willing to spend 140 bucks for all of this?

Bigger units are going to be the norm. 40 is the new 20 for 8th edition. And he needs to shift the Exalted hero to a lord, that will bring him into line.

Yeah and make him more expensive. 40 is just too much. It makes armies all smaller.

I still stick to the several units. Although I use elves (of all 3 flavours) which are faster so these smaller units outmanouver the large units and then gain flank and even rear charges. Then said unit is in trouble-great when combined with an attack from coldone knights/white lions/wardncer etc in the front.

see dont hold me to this but units with more ranks than the enemy are now stubborn and i do beleive that the said unit still gets the bouns even if you flank them, dont hold me to that, but if i am correct a smaller unit in the flank will damage a unit but is by no means guarrented to win outright. espescialy since fear no longer auto breaks (you needed need snake eyes to pass)

i have no idea on how flanking and ranks work right now so well find out for sure in 2 weeks. @cheesmiester: 72 pounds is about 106.9 usd and with all the international taxes and shipping and everything it comes up to be the same price so its still not really worth it.
