Thanks for the compliment!FrostFox72 wrote:So would you say it's worth it to give a Great Unclean One the Eternal Blade or is it just best to take the Balesword? Doesn't seem clear to me, considering the GUO's Monstrous size would give AP2 and make it better. Seemed like a pretty good option considering, and I've used it to great effect before.
Otherwise great Tactica!
As far as equipping Great Unclean Ones go, I would advise taking the Balesword for the Instant Death awesomeness, especially since so many armies are losing their access to reliable Eternal Warrior (including ours, but hey, gotta go with the flow) and taking Biomancy powers to augment the GUO's stats, rather than the Eternal Blade. Raising his Mastery Level is cheaper than a Hellforged Artifact, and has the potential to be much more powerful if you happen to get Iron Arm. It's random, I know, but better to have the chance at a Toughness 10 Eternal Warrior GUO than a guaranteed Toughness 7 that is slightly improved in close combat.
You can also acquire essentially the same buff as the EB provides through the debuff Miasma of Pestilence brings, and you have a decent shot at getting Miasma every time you roll on the Plague Discipline.
