Hey everyone, to my surprise I came home from work tonight to a Hurricanum/Luminark box as a birthday present from my girlfriend. I'm not too familiar with it, as I've mainly been using infantry and cavalry in my (small) empire army. I haven't put it together yet, and I was just curious what everyone thinks is the more useful configuration.

I always liked the look of the hurricanum (havn't yet been willing to shell out the 50ish bucks) over the 6+ ward...which is kind of meh.

I'm both selfish and rational. I'm scheming, secretive and manipulative; I use knowledge as a tool for personal gain, and in turn obtaining more knowledge. At best, I am mysterious and stealthy; at worst, I am distrustful and opportunistic.

Luminark.
+1 Dispel dice is nice, and the S8 D3 wound hit is pretty good.

@2500, you can take a luminark, 2 hellblasters and a steamtank. You can't do that with the hurricrapium.

I might have to get two of these then... Because look-wise I like the Hurricanum, but it sounds like profile-wise the Luminark wins...

The luminark actually looks pretty good if you only build it with a single lens.

I have a special love of the hurricanum. But it depends on whether you need more help with casting or dispelling.

I run massive infantry blocks, and a +1 to hit helps the halbreds and great swords continue to dish out the pain even after hatred wears off. A 6+ ward means less to a halberd then the extra dice for the priests 5+ or a dice to throw at earthblood.

Its too bad the ward doesn't stack like how tzeench does. Perry on a 5+? yes please.

Despite my heavy use of the hurricanum, it's bound spell is rather crappy, and I've been meaning to drag both wagons around a while to try give the offensive laser beam machine a second chance....

Sargent! Bring me my brown pants!
