palanquin of nurgle and look out sir in WoC Armies

Post by tmjm31 » Tue Jan 20, 2015 2:13 pm

Been researching this a while now and I've still to find a definative answer.

Palanquin of nurgle is listed in WoC army book as MB, but with a lord on top this then turns into Mons Cav.

People have suggested that I can "hide" my palanquin in a knight or marauder horseman unit, but to my mind Mons Cav and Cav aren't the same troop type.

Only other Mons Cav in the WoC Army would be Skullcrushers, which rules a Nurgle Lord out.

Wish this thing was more like Dwarf Shieldbearers! Would make things so much easier. Either that or hide it in a bunch of Ogres or Trolls.

Any clarity here would be AWESOME!

I believe you still can put the guy on palanquin in a unit of a different type, you just can't make any look out sir rolls.

Yeah, he can join units of different types but my main concern is protecting him with 'look out sir' rolls from my friends cannons.

Just get him a charmed shield or something, maybe a decent ward save as well. Also get some chimera's that can fly up and threaten his cannons and battle line, in the end it is all about target saturation.
