Battle of the (War)bands
CE vs CE



It's worth noting that both evil factions have come down to Outsiders vs. Undead. Last week, it was Pit Fiend vs Lord Soth. This week, Balor vs Vlaakith the Lich Queen. But first, let's look back to our last poll, asking for your final LE choice:

Choice 1 (Pit Fiend): 52%
Choice 2 (Lord Soth): 48%

Be sure to check the ongoing brackets, to see how far your warband has advanced!

Balor

The melee muscle of the Balor's band is unmatched among the commanders in this poll; few opponents can withstand many hits at 25 or 30 damage apiece. When it comes time for a morale check, the Balor's crew can work together to force the opponent to endure penalties up to -8, with the looming threat of Enslave ability hanging overhead.

  • Ogre Ravager
  • Orc Wizard
  • Orc Wardrummer
  • Troglodyte Thug
  • Quaggoth Slave
  • Orc Warrior

Vlaakith the Lich Queen

Vlaakith's all-Fearless warband doesn't worry about morale saves, but opponents need to worry about Disintegrate saves, possibly at -2 because of the Cursed Spirit's aura. Both of Vlaakith's melee beaters can heal themselves as they fight, and Vlaakith's DR and resistances make her no soft target, either.

  • Vampire Dire Wolf
  • Thrall of Blackrazor
  • Quaggoth Slave
  • Cursed Spirit
  • Warrior Skeleton x3
