Priority targets for Spectres?

Wed Jan 20, 2016 8:17 pm

I've purchased 6 Spectres.

How many should be used in a 800 or 1000 point list.

I have them behind a shield wall.

What would priorities be for using their fell lights?

Also can I try the power on a model who passed it from a different spectre?

Any tactics with Spectres would be appreciated.
Thanks?

I use them along with a Nazgul to drain courage of the target first but good targets are wizards, banner bearers and other heroes. they are also good for disrupting battle lines and moving heavy troops out the way to get at the softer units in the back lines. Another use is to push fighty heroes out of combat. As for how many I run with 2

Running them along side Nazgul is a great idea.
They are also OK with the Golden King.
You can cast on the same enemy more than once, and they will keep trying to resist it until they run out of will or fail.

Nice

Can I move a pikeman who is surrounded by his own guys?

Do they move out of the way?

you have to move the back one first then the supporting one, as the model still has to make a legal move ie the base has to fit through any gap

Yes, it also doesn't get to avoid enemy control zones.
I would rather share one lifetime with you than face all the ages of this world alone.

Actually you can't. The new rules state that once you've made a Courage test and passed, you automatically pass all other Courage tests of the same type.

So Spectres get one chance per model in The Hobbit rules.
