Yes, standard Imperial Gryphon. Best equipment choices? How do we make him worth it. Okay, I don't think we can make him worth it but dammit I at least want him to be effective. So far here's the best idea I've come up with.
-Full Plate, Charmed Shield, Ogre Blade, Crown of Command
-Blood Roar, Two Heads
This gives the rider a 2+ save with a 2+ shot at avoiding that first cannon ball or stone thrower shot. Combining the Gryphon and the Character the model has 8 WS5, S6 attacks so on average hit on 3's wound 2's should be killing average of 4-5 guys and then the Thunderstomp at S6 for another average of 3 is 8ish... Blood Roar is probably unnecessary but I consider it a fair bit of added defense since the Gryphon actually has no armor this should help keep him alive through multiple round of combat and even should you lose the Crown should keep you there.
Thoughts? Other equipment kits? Please, please, share.
