I'm planning a 2000k to battle dwarves, see thread here: http://www.druchii.net/viewtopic.php?t=57100

One of the undecided question, noone have responded to is the BSB. Im planning using the Hydra Banner on the BSB and field him/her amongst the executioners. Im still a little worried about survivability, so I'll either field:

A master with HA, SDC, GW - 117 + Banner

A Death Hag with Dance of Death and Hand of Khaine - 160 + Banner

I feel the Death Hag might actually be more surviveable and the Executioners will almost want to charge if able to or otherwiase shielded, so Frenzy should be less of an issue.


What's your opinion/experience, Master or Death Hag?

I understand from reading your army list in the other topic that you want to use your BSB in your executioners.
Executioners are Khainite, so only the Death hag BSB would be able to join them.

DOH! Thanks for pointing it out.

On a more general note, which would you prefer if the BSB was to be field in a non-khanite unit?

For me I'd prefer the master, for fluff reason and for the fact that he can shoot the enemy with a normal RxB, can use a GW, better protected than the hag and can use a mount meaning you can have one more dead in your unit as he's on a 25x50 base (not sure about this one)

He's more flexible I think.

Master. You don't want your BSB to suddenly run out of a unit cause there was some random fast cavalry unit within 9,5" and you didn't want to charge them.

Just put your Death Hag BSB in the center of the first rank and it won't happen? Or at least itll be harder for him to redirect more properly.

eh, just put the unit 8" in front of that block. You'll flee anyway but you force the whole unit to charge (and get into some trap) or stay behind while valuable BSB charges in frenzy.

A risk to take if you want ASF Execs and I wouldnt mind my Execs to fall in a 'trap' when supported by ASF banner and Cauldron of Blood's +1A (:

But thats all extremely situational and list dependant and opponent dependant.

The death hag is a more offensive character then the master.
A BSB is a defensive character IMO.
I'd go for the master if I wanted a BSB.

But think about a BSB Hag with CoB. you're giving Stubborn to all Khainite unit and you're able to reroll all break tests. Which is pretty defensive to me, if you use a Khainite army, of course.

Your right Crawd.
Malerun wanted to play his BSB in a unit, A BSB hag with cauldron can't do that.
