PostSubject: Warlord Traits   Thu Dec 27 2012, 12:26

Just wondering how you guys roll for your warlord traits, my friends and I got fed up of getting useless traits. Instead of choosing a table then rolling, we now roll first then chose one of the three options it gives you a lot more choice and we find it works better all round.


has anyone else done anything like this? If not you should give it a try.

I personally consider warlord traits as a random factor for the fun part of it. As far as I can remember there are only about.. 3 in total that can possibly break the game. I'm thinking of the additional +1 cover in ruins and some of the Command traits.

We usually roll once on one table, then another roll on a second, different table, picking one of the results

Strategic for normal games, but personal for campaign games and everytime I use Ze Dook.

Why strategic? Well, because I think the army wide effects are all useful most of the time and don't require your warlord to be anywhere. I usually play with a Haemonculus as my warlord, but have been using Archons and Ze Dook quite a lot recently in our campaign. Personal all the way, then. Smile

This isn't a rules question so shipping this off to DE General.

I'm with Kinnay, I'm a big fan of Strategic and think it overall provides the best benefits to the DE.

That said, there are a lot of differences about which table you should roll on depending what you're fielding. When I field Ghaz and my Orks I tend to go Personal, for instance.

I agree, strategic is the most flexible for us

Strategic--the only worthless trait is Master of Ambush.

Been using the roll first, pick the desired number so that the number of useless traits decreases dramatically.

i've been going with Strategic as well, as getting another opportunity for the first turn for night fighting is too go to pass up!

My gaming group decided to make a house rule that you roll a d6 and choose from the 3 categories. So if I roll a 4, I pick what column I want to take the 4 from; Strategic, Personal or Command. (Apologies for not having my rulebook on me to list the actual abilities)

It's just so random, especially when I roll the outflanking bonus or something. This way we can at least pick something that might be a little useful.

But personally I like the strategic, for night fighting, +1 reserve, or -1 enemy reserve.

I will try it, its a good idea and it sounds like something a opponent would accept.

I ALWAYS use strategic.
