Your favorite single entity unit in Warhammer 1&2 !

DarkLordDDarkLordD Posts: 2,293Registered Users
Hello everyone !

Here is another 'your all time favorite' post ! I see they are doing well, and most importantly, we have fun with eachother discussing our favorite game !


So here we go again. This time its about your favorite single entity unit in warhammer 1 and 2 combined. Remember, only 1 unit allowed, and no more.

Before you are going to give your answer, may I please ask you to read the rules before you make your decision ? thank you very much !

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Rules :

You can pick any unit IN the game, not units which might have been added by mods

Your choice needs to be based on the game options of units, this means no unit that is affected by mods (buffing stats or the likes) which make you like it better and thus your favorite.

All DLC"s, FLC units are allowed.

The question is about your favorite unit in the game, not lore (this can make a lot of different)

Tell us WHY you like the unit, otherwise it loses the purpose of this post.

No legendary lords, generic lords or hero's. (and therefore there mount)

RoR units are allowed.

No bashing others for there choice !!! Don't need to explain to someone else why there choice might be a poor one in your eyes.

You should pick your favorite unit without regards to cost effectiveness. I want to hear you overall favorite unit, not because it does best cost wise.

Only 1 unit (meaning, not 2 or more !!) can be your complete favorite, so choose wisely !!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As usual, I start with mine :)


This was an easy pick for me. the very first time I used this one I was in ABSOLUTE LOVE with it !! Without further due, I choose : The Chill of Sontar !!! (note, I really mean the RoR unit variant of the War Hydra, NOT the standard version of it, but sadly I couldn't find a nice screenshot for him ^^)




This guy is so much better then the normal War Hydra.

Let me begin by saying he looks MESMERIZING. When you are fighting in snowy areas, his beautiful blue/white colour reflect like a mirror on your soul. It is truly a desired beast to have.

His Breath attack is ammmmmaaaaazzzziiiinnnnggg !!!! (if you haven't tried, I highly suggest you do it NOW(!)). It truly slays infantry.

The overall feeling of a war hydra is very easy going and easy to deploy against a wide variant of units. I like the simplicity it brings, yet with great effectiveness.


This is my favorite RoR unit out of all of them that are available. I love the guy and is therefor my favorite single entity monster in the game (so far !! I challenge you C.A. to make me chance my mind !)


Now its your turn ! as always, I look forward seeing all of your decisions and thank you in advance for your contribution.

Have a great day everyone !

    ironbreakers

    140 n armour and 91 MD + charge defense VS all

    good luck getting past that

    It's much easier and more fun to get engrossed in lore that takes itself seriously and tries to make sense within its own frame of reference.

    the reason I prefer LOTR over warhammer fantasy and 40k

    If I had to choose a favourite single entity unit I would probably have to say the Lizardmen Stegadon.

    During my first full vortex campaign playing as Lizardmen, Kroq-gar, the starting Stegadon I got was with me from start to finish and I loved watching it smash through my enemies in battle. There is something very satisfying about watching those rats turned to red paste by an angry herbivore and of course it never gets old, I could watch time and time again (provided my attention is not needed elsewhere on the battlefield.

    I always had a fascination with Dinosaurs when I was younger and the Triceratops was always one of my favourites, thick hide, large intimidating crest and of course the horns. Given it's similarities to our hardy, big booty Stegadon, it's easy to see why :smiley:





    I also love big butts and I cannot lie :tongue:

    War Mammoth. Just fun to see it's size and inertia just wreck battle lines.

    Easily the Carnosaur. I love the look and it's animations, it's a shame they aren't formidable as infantry killers, since their animations take a long time and they don't rack up as many kills as say a Stegadon, who trashes around all the time.
    I know they're a dedicated anti large unit, but still

    Easily the Doomwheel. I just love crushing man-things...
  • Michael4537Michael4537 Posts: 2,045Registered Users
    Single entity... hmm...

    Ancient Stegadon by a mile. It's anti-infantry, but it can still hold its own against cavalry and even other high-tier monster killers. The blowpipes mulch infantry, they have a massive charge bonus, and they have such a high mass that they can just plow through almost everything. Truly a monster, and the best all-around one at that. Need it to fight cavalry? No problem. Infantry? That's what it's made for. Other monster? Just watch as they get skewered on the Stegadon's horns. Every anti-large infantry can struggle, since the beast just tosses them around.




    The ONLY thing that might top it was if we got an Engine of the Gods variant...

    I love me a Vamp Lord on zombie dragon, but that's just looks and theme. Function wise I have always loved gorebulls, so bad ass, but they just make me wish there was a doombull though.

    As a Big Lizardmen Fan I simply got to go with the Mighty Ancient Stegadon.

    It simply feels like a Tank, a monstruous Guardian of Order. Charging Headfirst into the fray, with the most glorious and devastating charge in the game, sending lines of enemy flying. Their poisonous machine guns makes them suprisingly powerfull against Monsters, beating Mammoths and even the Carnosaurs in combat. They are an anchor or any army, able to tank hundreds of enemies at a time.

    Simply an amazingly beautifull sight on the battlefield !




    Plus the Mighty Zlaaq, the loyal mount of Pepe the toad is an ancient stegadon so thats a **** plus !

    Ancient Stegadon. It simply wrecks faces, even if you click attack once and forget about it the rest of the fight.

    It is really hard to choose one favorite unit in this game especially because there are so many cool monster in the game. I have dillema between Varghulf and Vargheists. I think that I gonna choose Varghulf as the best monster in the game.

    I'll have to say the Carnosaur. Not only because it's a dinosaur and therefore already awesome, but I love the animation of it leaping into infantry. It just looks like it's having so much fun jumping into them. I'll agree, they are not really the best units, but I love watching them tear through infantry like a puppy diving into a bunch of tissue paper. They look like they enjoy it as much as I do.
    I am incredibly mad and angry at whatever someone insinuated could possibly, but not likely, happen in the WH series today and CA must answer for this with an explanation of why they might possibly, but didn't do this!!!

    Agree they are so **** nice, if they could be a bit better vs Infantry they would be my favorite unit single entity for sure.

    In terms of right clicking the enemy line, pressig K, and running for a box of tissues - defo the hellpit abomination. The model and animation is just mesmerising.

    Overall though the doomwheel. Love speeding around flashing off lightening like a madman
