Title: Dwarf Totems in an army.
Post by: Buzzu on August 25, 2018, 06:03:51 PM
Hy. After an amazing match between some dwarves and Helios elves, some questions arose about how many totems and keepers could be played in an army. The main questions are: How many totems can a keeper hold? If I have a Dark Tusk keeper in play, can I field two Dark Tusk totems? Or do I have to place one Keeper for every totem I'm gonna play?

Here's more. According to the rules (p.195) a Keeper must belong to the main clan I'm playing. Let's suppose I already have a keeper and a Totem of the main clan, can I play another keeper of a different clan in my remaining 40% of the army? (Obviously respecting the rules of 1wb/individual and the full AP amount of the army).

Let's make it clear once and for all. Thank for your help.

I don't see any limit to the number of keepers you can have, unlike blackblood alchemists or stygian priestesses.

I don't see any limit to the number of totems you can have, either, so it appears you only need 1 dwarf clan keeper and you can field as many totems of that type as you like.

Alchemists of the blackbloods have no limits. You can field as many of them as you want (with one wb each of course).
Apart from this, I appreciate your answer but I need the second answer too: can I place ANOTHER DIFFERENT keeper in my 40% secondary clans units if I placed one of the main clan into the army? (See page 195).

Thank you!

You are right about the alchemist.  I should have use a lotus eater as an example.   

I think you can only use keepers from main army clan, no second keeper based on the rules as written.

Of course if I was playing against you I would encourage you to play multiple keepers and different kinds 9f totems because they look awesome on the board.
