Love the Bisotaur Shaman

Although the model hasn't been released, I've recently been using a Bisotaur Shaman as the warlord for my Banebrood warbands. My Bisotaur Shaman is good value at 77 points.

Bisotaur Shaman - 30
Disruption Totem - 12
Staff of Mors - 10
Witchweed Extract - 7

Bulging Biceps - 4
Exoskeleton - 5
Long Legs - 9

I use him to buff my units before sending them into battle. If I take Guthackers, the Shaman gets another D6 for spells. The Staff of Mors allows a re-roll of a d6 once per round and the Disruption Totem makes the Bisotaur Shaman difficult to hit. I find over the past 6 games he's survived every game, unlike the Gorelord or Reaver Tyrant. His Beastspawn sub-faction ability helps with charges, he has a free spell-sustain per round, has a better magic ability than the Fallow Shaman and best of all is his ability to make the mutations permanent. He can make cheap units like the Maldire Mongrels or Reaver Tribesmen a lot more dangerous by pumping them up with his mutations. If a Fallow Shaman is added to the warband, the Bisotaur Shaman can also make his mutations permanent. I prefer the Bisotaur Shaman to the Gorelord & Reaver Tyrant.

I agree with all your comments here. He is especially powerful with a supporting Fallow Shaman and lots of Reaver Tribesmen due to their Bonus for Mutation spells.
And when taking These guys it does of course make sense to take a small unit of Guthackers to act as Magic boost and Bodyguards.

now I believe the debuff spells that the bisotaur and the fallow shamen get are also mutations.
If that is true would that make it easier for banebrood to debuff enemy banebrood?

Jep, that's the way it is. If you are frail to mutation magic you are frail to mutation magic Wink
