BDD 202 – Top 5 Chariots

Top 5 Chariots

Today is top 5 tuesday and I am talking about my top 5 Chariots in Warhammer

Firstly I should define what a chariot is.  I could go with the simple way of anything with the unit type Chariot (CH) but that opens it up to the Ironblaster and the Skull Cannon, and even things like Mortis Engine and Chaos War Shrine.  Instead I am going to compile my list based only on ‘Vanilla’Chariots, or at least chariots that have their main role has being combat support units rather than pseudo-warmachines or units that have no classification and chariot is the easiest way of making them work.

So onto the list.

There are 31 different chariots in Warhammer across the 16 races (I’m including Chaos Dwarfs here), some of them you see used in every army others are not quite so common.

  • 5. Chaos Warrior Chariot

If Carlsburg mage generic heavy chariots….

  • 4. Tomb King Chariots

The ultimate utility chariot that has lots of options but excels at none. Its a great at fitting different roles as required

  • 3. Gorebeast Chariot

The ultimate heavy chariot.

  • 2. Goblin Wolf Chariots

A bargin at 50 points and such a useful unit while being totally disposable

  • 1. Exalted Seeker Chariot

The big crazy daemonette chariot, I’m not sure why I like it so much but I do!  Its my top chariot in Warhammer.

    I find one of the true gems of the Tomb King Chariots is their ability to get the killingblow on all those attacks. Especially with all the heavy characters we see in the game now (peg riders, deamonic mount exhalteds, scar vets etc).
     
    1+ rerollable save, T5 and 3 wounds? Killingblow it. Pendant? Can tank sphinxes all day but hates loads of S3 killingblow attacks.

    Would give an honorable mention to the Orc Boar Chariot.   85 points; special – it’s pretty similar to the WoC core chariot.  Loses is str 5 when it doesn’t charge, but choppas will help offset that a bit if it gets charged.  Cheap, tough and reliable.
