So Im an avid if very average TW warhammer player(playing mostly on hard or VH depending on how miserable the start is), alot of the legendary lord and to an extent some regular lords(high elf and power named dark elfs), have serious upkeep and general buffs to specific units, how strict are you guys with abusing that?
As an example, when I play HElf with Tyrion, I red line the combined arms and archer buffs, play him with pretty much all spears/archers/silver helms/Bolt thrower to make that stack super efficient, I then bring in Alastar and go mostly white lions and archers/sisters on him and I keep them like that for the rest of the campaign, maybe adding a dragon or two on Tyrion to weather through in the lategame. Its to the degree that the only thing i use Tyrion's recruit bonus to LSG for is to ship them of to other lords.
Likewise for kroq-gar I go saurus/riders with the redline buffs, sprinkle in a dino and a flying unit or two, otherwise I keep him like that for the campaign.
Do you guys switch up the armies later to make them doom stacks or do you play like me and get other lords to carry that load if it is ever needed? I feel like the concentration of power rarely help except for quest/final battles, and the economic saving and investment in red points I've almost always committed merit that I keep them as is with just a sprinkling of a big hitters like the a cannon, dragon or dino
the exceptions to this dilemma is ofc LLs like Malekith and big Maz, since they give upkeep benefits to powerful units like TG and BG, so I never feel like Im missing out.
Anyways, just curious to how people prefer to play them out
