BDD 203 – Dealing with Chariots

Dealing With Chariots

In this episode I will talk about some of the ways that different armies can deal with chariots.

Yesterday I talked about some of the best chariots in the game and recent army releases have seen a resurgence in the use of chariots.  I talk about each army and how they can play against chariots.  I did this in a previous episode where I addressed each race and talked about their options.  Last time it was well received so I will do the same with chariots.

Beastmen can use big blocks and soaking up casualties, Dark Elves have Pendant wearing Pegasus Riders and Ogres do what they always do and use Ironblasters, these are just some of the tips I give in this episode.

I offer up a different piece of advice for each race and try to not repeat any tips where possible.

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.
