Sowing Misinformation – part 3

Having already covered High Elves (Sowing Misinformation – Part 1) and Dwarves (Sowing Misinformation- part 2), the 3rd part of these post will look at Beastmen.

Those of you who have been following the blog will know I’ve been on a bit of a beastmen building and painting spree of late. This is partly due to their completely different colour scheme from my other figures and it’s good to have a change to stave off boredom.

In terms of army play time, beasts suffer the same affliction as my elf choices, in so far as I have very limited play time with them (or none as it is in this case). They also have a small disadvantage as they never received an updated 8th edition book so many of their choices are considered overpriced. They’ve also been around for long enough that their main competitive builds are reasonably well known (minobus and herdstone).

That having been said, they can still by all accounts be competitive and in the same manner as orcs are a horde army with a number of unique and fun options.

I will of course eschew all conventional wisdom (ok not entirely) and again list build incorporating the models I really like.

Hugging the Herdstone

This is a fairly conventional beastmen list, maximising their magic phase strength whilst still piling hordes and plenty of chaff forward.

Characters 

Great Bray Shamen – magic stuff

Wargor – magic stuff

This list probably isn’t as competitive as the previous but has the potential to be a lot more fun. Who doesn’t want various blood drunk frenzied rampaging beasts on the battlefield!!
