Title: Take Halberds or Lances for Demigrpyh Knights?
Post by: Baron Von Griffon on January 05, 2017, 11:30:25 PM
Hello, I am currently building an empire army, and I can't make up my mind on what to arm my Demigrpyh Knights with. Last time I checked lances give you 2+ on a charge, but then you are back to a S 4 attack, but with a Halberd you get an unlimited amount of S 5 attacks. I just can't pick between the two.

Assuming that you are talking about 8th edition, here are some we prepared earlier:

http://warhammer-empire.com/theforum/index.php?topic=43107.0

The majority opinion is that it is better to keep the +1 AS provided by lances + shield, as the mounts will do most of the damage anyway.

On a side note: given that WFB is officially defunct, it is always good to clarify which edition you are playing, when asking questions about rules, equipment, tactics, etc.

As above: the majority of attacks come from the mount at S5 anyway so giving the model a better armour save to make 1 of its 4 attacks generally worse is a better option.  Lances all the way!
