Pretty much the same
Greylord Ternion in a nutshell
A toolbox unit, providing a variety of tools to aid the rest of your army.
Combos & Synergies
- They work well with anyone who wants a DEF bonus vs ranged and magic attacks.
- Really low DEF models (like Man-O-War) not so much, because it won't make much difference to the enemies maths, but a target with base DEF around the DEF 12-13 mark is the "sweet spot", as you'll push them up to effective DEF 14-15 which is a lot harder to hit.
Drawbacks & Downsides
- Support unit through-and-through. They're not gonna be holding up a big nasty unit, and they will die to a concentrated attack.
- They're essentially Blizzard-on-a-stick. If you move forwards to try and make use of their offensive spells, chances are you'll be dead next turn.
Tricks & Tips
- The clouds stay centred on the model even if they move, so activate the Ternions first before running the models up the board.
