BDD 154 – Monstrous Cavalry Comparison

Monstrous Cavalry Comparison

As 2012 draws to a close I want to run a Monstrous Cavalry Comparison as they have been the units that are the most talked about this year.

In this episode I run through, with a lot of help from a listener, Kristof, the differences between these units when pitted against each other and against some ‘control’ units.

Monstrous Cavalry units are truly brutal when unleashed and this test shows the power that they can unload.

During this episode I refer to a document that I have to compare the starts of the units and the results of the fights between them:


The test pits Mournfangs, Demigryph Kinghts, Skull Crushers of Khorne, Necropolis Knights and Bull Centaurs against each other and against some common Warhammer Units to see who is the king of the monstrous cavalry


If you have anything to say about this episode feel free to let me know by leaving a comment below or sending an email to

Tomorrow is the last show of the year and I will be doing a WWCD episode with a christmas theme so let me know what your christmas themed army would be.

I look forwards to hearing what you have to say!

    crackin’ episode! Really fun to listen to. Makes me wish for similar episodes regarding monstrous infantry and monsters. Possibly even regular infantry and cavalry.

    I can certainly do some similar shows in the new year!

    Hi Ben!
    I’ve already tweeted you this, but I’ll just make it known here too (for no known reason).
    “Bull Centaurs don’t get +1S on the charge from their Spears because they aren’t Monstrous Cav.
    They’re Monstrous Beasts…”
    So instead of the extra strength they get to attack with an extra rank, as long as they don’t charge.
    Forge World sure know how to write an army!
    Also, a “MathHammer” app exists already from fantasymathhamr  which is worth a look at…
    Great episode regardless!
