With the new book we no longer have to choose between a caster and a fighter (woot!) and I almost instantly thought of how useful it will be to have mine zipping around the battlefield causing mayhem on a “magic carpet”. My question is - what would be a good conversion for a character on a carpet. Uh…besides a carpet I mean. A flying plinth is just to obvious so I’m looking for something more original.
The Purple Sun of Xerces is about the only spell I won’t let him cast. The chance of him misfiring, catching himself, and then falling down a well is just too high. I was thinking he’d be dishing out the Lore of Hashut which would be even worse! Chaos Dwarves can do what a lot of other races can’t. We can debuff a stat and then make someone take a stat test for a double whammy. Chosen bunkers? Bring it. Slann bunker? Bring it. Greater Deamon? BRING IT!
I’ve learned from experience that having a mobile caster annoys the heck out of my opponents because they can’t pin him down. Being mobile and on a tiny 20mm base is going to irritate them even more!
I LOVE the “ash cloud” idea. That’ll be perfect!
And sorry for posting in the wrong area. Feel free to move the thread.
I kinda like the idea of a disc of Tzeentch going on pimp my ride if Westwood was a Sorceror Prophet, I’m thinking like a big shiny flying cutting disc.
Shame the magic carpet can’t be taken with the daemon flask of ashak, zipping into your opponents army on turn 1 and unleashing that baby for mass panic and destruction of war machines would be awesome.
When you say flying on a cloud, i can’t help but picture that chinese? show “Monkey Magic” or something it was. You know tripitaka is a preist and there was the monkey king and pixie and sandy walking somewhere looking for bhuddha.
