I'd convert them to ten barded Black Knights with the Icon of Vengeance. You'll still get the 10 attacks (2 ranks x1), won't crumble and have a rank for disruption purposes. That costs 9 points extra. And they are Striders, to boot.
Icon of Vengeance... really?

Am I missing something here?

Normally if the boss goes down you can pretty much kiss the game g'bye, so this item only comes into effect if things have gone drastically wrong. And if the boss doesn't go down, then it's a wasted standard.

Or am I missing something....? :scratchhead:
Wooah, what's with the Eldar/Undead crossover....!!

Creon, re-read Icon of Vengeance, specifically states, casualties as a result of general's death...

Sethis, always good to see you're input =)

Blood Knights, ofc, I had completely forgotten about those guys as they were too easily baited with Frenzy. New rules, drop in some high Ld and it's a whole new ball game, likin' it.
Funny though how both armies need to be run in tight symbiosis with augmentation from a prominent magick user (pref named) or two...

Could Count Mannfred be the new Eldrad?
