PostSubject: Restless Dead in BTB Tactics, Tips needed   Thu 11 Jan 2018 - 6:58

Hello everyone,
yesterday i played my first game in a new BTB campaign with a Restless Dead Warband (Silent Threat objective). I made some rather silly decisions like choosing to be the defender in the Blockade Secenario and ended up losing two wights against filthy skaven. All in all i won and the rats paid more, but i'd have preferred none of my warband dying. Or raiding that supply cart for that matter. My necromancer causes fear though, so not all went poorly.

I have started with three hired swords this time, because i wanted to change things up. Usually i just filled up my roster with zombies, but i figured i could do that later too, when the hired swords have experience. Turns out i rolled the reanimation spell with my lich, so that may have actually been a better idea.

So here's my warband:

Lich +Reanimation, Call of Vanhel
Necromancer +Fear, Reanimation
Graveguard
Graveguard +Step Aside
Graveguard +1S

Wight
2 Zombies
Witch +Cure, Warrior's Bane
Pathfinder
Cathayan Merchant

Everyone who can has a mace and i have a sword i will probably give the GG with Step Aside.

I don't see myself purchasing anything expensive in the near future with the upkeep of 40 GC.
I am hoping to eventually get a skill roll on the merchant and to put the reroll of the pathfinder to good use so i can balance out the upkeep. Any tips to help my corpses in denial out?

Thanks!

On the plus side the Merchant should pay for himself without a skill roll and have a bit left over. What skill would you take if he rolled one?

I think stone cutter, if i got that, i'd be a lot less strapped for cash and i could start putting money aside for the Skeletal Giant fund. Most of the time he's a big waste of gold, but it's really fun to put that huge miniature on the field.

What would you try to do with this warband?

Sorry to be the only one answering. Despite the popularity of BTB, actual players who will post seem rare. I was just curious about the merchant as I only use the Arabian one and was too lazy to look up his rules.

Stone Cutter on average gives you extra gold whenever you sell treasure. I also took him because only 2 of my heroes can search for items. Though my group using a rather silly rule about item searching doesn't make that as bad.
