Is it worth tiering hordes armies? I have 15 points of circle and im thinking to the future and what to get next. I have an idea but it does not match up with Moshar's tiering. Does it really make a difference or is it some thing i should look into? I know ill loose the extra litltle bonus abilities that come with tiering but other than that whats the difference??

Theming an army isnt massively advantagous. The advantages you get are mostly underpowered compared to being severely limited in your army choice.

oh good i was hoping that was the case i have a good idea of what im gonna do and if i had tiered then it would have been completely different lol
at present i have

Mohsar
Gnarlhorn
Shadowhorn
Shifting stones
Sentry stone and manakins

15 points

was thinking of expanding that to 25 by adding reeves and wolves of orboros (gives cheep expendables for sands of fate plus the reeves work well with the manakins abilities) then to 35 by adding a stone keeper (increace potential of shifting stones massively) a gorax (for use with maltreatment) and a warpwolf skinwalkers unit.

What do you think ?? anyone ??

Mohsar
gnarlhorn
shadowhorn
shifting stones and stone keeper
sentry stone and manakins
druids of orboros
druids of orboros
stoneward and woldstalkers

which according to battle college covers all the criteria of tier 1,2,3 and 4 but i dont know how it all works exactly as i don't have the book yet Razz

The tiers take the Lock, caster down and give IMHO a different twist on the play style of the army with restrictions and bonus's.

Some are good others are pants to be polite, but looking at the circle book I think they have really got them right for the faction, Morshar and Baldurs' are one to watch and Kaya's could well be filth.

I'll stick with cryx as thats my comfort zone to say the least!!

cheers all ty for your helpful input. I do like the look of a themed war band and some of the bonus's with Mohsar are pretty cheeky. I feel like a kid in a sweet shop. So much cool stuff and not sure what to use LOL


Would it be worth including a 3rd beast as i think i might struggle keepin my fury up (all 8 of it) with just 2 beasts ?? I was thinking of adding a gorax (pain response)? But its been pointed out that a wold guardian would be a good addition also??

Yes to get each tier you must fulfill the requirements of all the tiers for it also.

What a shame two druid units with UA, what filth could that possibly begin to give.....

Rolling Eyes

Though templates that block los also help....
