A gross misinterpretation of the rules... (Ornak)

...or maybe it was just a very poor assumption on my part.

This is sort of an embarassing one that I could have avoided had I read the Book of Ornak a little closer.

Anyway, here's my story so that the one other dolt out there may be saved the ridicule.

Got all the Flag Bearers for Christmas this year, and was finally able to play some scape the other night. I built an army around Ornak and a couple other uniques (Utgar) to take advantage of his Red Flag of Fury Aura.

The "DOAH!" part of this comes with his Orc Battle Cry Aura. I assumed that the Flag Bearers were given all those dice for a reason, why give 12 dice unless you are supposed to use them all? You see where this is going?

Yes, when I was finally able to make use of the Warrior Enhancment I took out all 12 Utgar dice and prepared to roll them, only to be stopped and asked what the heck I was doing.

It made sense after it was explained (especially since Ornak is only 100pts) but for a while I didn't agree. I think it was more my not being able to get beyond the fact that they give 12 dice in the box and you really need none of them. I had more of a problem with them costing $13 each for essentially just the figure and card since the dice aren't needed. Yeah they're cool and all, but... meh... I'm a dolt!

DarkDino Woo who?
Same thing I did with Laglor, I thought, with his auotload, that you rolled them seperately and that you rolled all 12. Basically he killed everything within range. This didn't fit his points so I looked it up here, and now I know it's just 3.

You get 12 dice so that you have a full set and can use them in place of the regular battle dice.

I thought it was a rip off too at first. But then I split up all my blood and turn markers and put them into the bags. Now, when we go to play you just grab a bag and you're ready to go. It's awesome.

I actually do this too...original order markers in the Vydar bag...Marvels in the Jandar Bag and SotMs in the Ullar bag so they match.

Gotta get some purple and black ones for Einer and Utgar

I did the same thing with my FB bags. I have wound counters in Utgar, Order markers in Jandar and Ullar, Glyphs in Vydar and D20s in Einar. All the regular dice are in one crown royal bag and the FB dice are in another.

I actually enjoy using the Einar dice for my regular dice rolling. I let my friends use and abuse the regular dice. They all like to sit there and shake the dice, so I don't have to worry about my FB dice losing their paint.

This is not the path I thought.
This is not the place I sought.
This is not the dream I bought,
just a fever of fate I've caught.

Somebody tried on this on me with Einar's flagbearer . . . he thought he could roll 12 Einar dice when defending and let all the Einar symbols count as extra shields (this is in addition to regular defense dice).

Am I in the minority by playing them the right way from the start? :P

Yep, that's exactly what I thought too, but with attacks instead.
