[Archive] Look out sir for tauruk

Da Crusha:

Hey guys, was just wondering if a Tauruk inside of a unit of 4 bull centaur renders can get a look out sir roll like an ogre character (I think). I thought I remember reading about ogres only needing 3 rank and file models. Or was that an army specific rule?

m0rg0th:

Ogres only need 3 models if they buy a Look-out-Gnoblar. Sadly the Renders do not have that option so no LoS in a unit of 3-4.

Billy Ocean:

Ugh, I wish. I love using the Taur’ruk in a small unit as a small agile hammer, but he continually gets cannon-sniped. Its why I had to move away from my absolute favorite Taur’ruk build:

Dawnstone, Dragonhelm, OTS, Great Weapon

To one with the charmed shield:

Dawnstone, Sword of Might, Charmed Shield

Not as powerful, but I’ve found it really helps get him into combat.

Abecedar:

@ Billy … your original build is like what I am using but what is OTS?

Geist:

OTS= Other Tricksters Shard.

Grimbold Blackhammer:

When I run my Taur’ruk, I stick him in the second rank. He survives 50% of cannonballs that way.
