Most Commonly Used Warscrolls by Subfaction

Taking our average number of Distinct Warscrolls for each Subfaction shown in the second table on this page, we show which of the Warscrolls in the faction are most commonly used and show them in a list equalling that Distinct Warscroll value.

Once again, the number of times the Warscoll appears in a 4+ winning list is shown in brackets.

As a note, reinforced units are treated as a distinct Warscroll. This is intended to give an idea of which units are commonly being reinforced for that subfaction.
