As described in the thread here, I thought I’d try and put some rules together.
Bull Tauren… ? points/model
- M WS BS S T W I A LdBulltaur (?) 5 4 3 4 4 1 2 2 9Hand of Hashut 5 4 3 4 4 1 2 3 9(base size 20mm x 20mm) Unitsize:
10+Weapons & Armour:
Hand weapon & heavy armour Options:
- Bull Tauren may carry great weapons (+2 pts), or an additional hand weapon (+2 points).
- May carry a shield (+1 pt)
- Upgrade one Bulltaur up to a Musician for +9 points.
- Upgrade one Bulltaur to an Icon bearer for +18 points.
- Promote one Bulltaur to Hand of Hashut for +18 points.
- A unit of Bull Tauren may carry a banner worth up to 50 points. Special Rules:
Hashut’s Chosen: Magic resistance (1)
Now this is as far as I’ve done so far. IMO they could do with something else adding, but I’m not sure what? Perhaps something like a bull rage, or an impact hit or something? They’ve already got a lot of attacks, so an impact hit is a bit much really.
I’m not really happy with the name either.
I like the Idea but I have no idea bout points.
20mm? I was picturing 25mm.
As for points, pretty high… 18? Special or Rare?
They could be unrestricted rare? Or 0-1??
I don’t see the need to put them on 25mm.��As infantry they would be the only ones on this in my list, which doesn’t seem necessary.

with 2 attacks each - you do need to but them on 25mm
essentially with 20mm bases theyd get an extra 4 attacks for a 5v5 frontage over their 25mm counterparts.
thats why nasty things like orcs and chaos and lizards get 25mm not 20mm
Id also say 25mm due to the 2 attacks
:hat off ~MM
Looks pretty good, but yes the name doesn’t seem to work so I’ll throw an idea or two out there. Chosen of Hashut to me sounds pretty good, well thats I could come up with, yet reminiescent (sp) of the chosen of chaos unfortunately…
+1S on the charge. Bull Rage. Is that something along the lines of what ya wanted? They should also have access to the 4+AS or start off with it. (P.S. I agree with the 25mm base…)
In my list that would come under ‘stone armour’, which would mean they couldn’t carry a shield, but would get 4+.��I’m not sure on this though as although they are rare with 2 attacks, and fast for dwarfs, that is 'ard armour as well. With only one wound as a rare infantry unit it might be worth it though?
+1 strength on the charge would be S7 if they have great weapons… :0
+1 attack at base strength on charge instead would be 4 basic attacks per model (with additional hand weapon)… :0
So I think both of those are out.
An idea I’ve just had;
Holy Vengeance:����AKA Rolling Thunder
Roaring sacred oaths to their dark god as they race after vanquished foes, the Bull Tauren pound their enemies into the dust in righteous fury..
+1 movement when pursuing broken enemy units.
This may be of interest:
