Which do you regularly use? Vote for all that apply.

Assuming tactical is not an option, which table does your Warlord get his powers from?  If another faction is usually your primary detachment, please hit 'other faction.'

Very list dependant question.

It also depends on the list I'm facing.

I generally roll on the DE table for a mix of fluff and general amusement (because I don't always get enough opportunities to swear at GW).

The Covens table is sometimes useful. However, I can recall very few games where I've rolled on the DE table and not regretted it immediately (+1 WS wooo!).

I prefer the Covens table myself, fixed if possible.

I am curious why people like Strategic so much more than Command, though.

Here's a question for you all - which results do you tend to reroll on your chosen warlord table(s)?

Better reserves for my opponent (Startegic table +1 to opponent reserves). Nightfight against Tau.

Depends

Eh? They get -1, not +1

They do. Very Happy I had it wrong in my head. It helps keeping fragile troops of the board.

If Dark Artisan Formation is used, I don't roll.

If doing null deployment list or a list with a hefty amount of reserves, I pick Strategic. There are a few good traits here to help survive until the reserves come in, or even allow reserve manipulation.

Sometimes with a succubus in a unit of grotesques I'll take Personal because its a nice way to beef up a solid CC character.

I always wide up with the infiltrating trait....which is boss. I reroll when I am going second.

If I'm running a normal list I take a Coven trait.

If I have a Troupe Master and no Covens I go with the Night table from the Harlie book.

If I HAVE to make an Eldar/DE my warlord, I go Command. Dust of a Thousand Worlds is just too awesome not to use. Inspiring Presence is amazing for DE, AND intimidating Presence is one of the most metal things a Freakshow list can have. Both the reroll Command traits tend to be rerolls for me, but I'm not sad if I still get them.

If I run harlequins I got for their twilight table. For some odd reason I think that their warlord tables and the daemonlin are some of the better built. I say Daemonkon since 5 put of the 6 is not bad for a Daemonkin style army. Included the +1attack.

I usually take the Dark Artisan and use the set WL trait that comes with it. There are better ones available certainly, but as much as possible, but I like going for the sure thing over the possibility of getting something mediocre or not super helpful.

Dark Artisan and Scarlet Epicurean are both great.

When you use the Scarlet Episcureans Haemonculus as your Warlord, do you try to get him killed for the d3 VPs?

IMO Strategic is so much better because of the army wide buffs.

I usually pick the random Dark Eldar table, but from now on I'll be picking the Strategic or Tactical table.

You fool!

You'll be forfeiting the chance of +1WS on your warlord. +1WS, man!

Or even Rage. RAGE I tell you!

The Hulk himself kneels in submission before the power of your angry warlord!

Yeah, I know, if only that would make him dangerous enough to threaten space marine chapter masters.

Well now hold on. He's still the toughest HQ we have because you'll be taking him with a shadow field. And given a power sword or Agoniser he can take on tactical marines pretty well, just not a whole squad by himself.
