+1

Depends a lot on unit size, but equal points value of Witches should take down the Trolls even without a Cauldron.

Indeed it is silly.

Among friends I would house-rule the Cauldron to have Ld 8 on death of the character. But in a competitive environment you generally have to live with the written stat line.

Thanks for this.

I have a wet palette but have had trouble finding refill paper.

Using parchment paper is an excellent idea.

Nicely done!

I hope you put the original banner top of that limited edition model to good use.

Good stuff. Very clean.

You can put the photos directly in your post:

I do think that the purple would benefit from some highlighting.

I agree that the stuff is obsolete. The new plastic models are so well engineered that you don't need to worry much about gap filling. Just use a plastic cement and you barely need to worry about seams at all. And for some of the older metal and plastic models still around, the gaps are big enough t...

Well, dark riders are better than both marauder horsemen and warhounds, they should comp more. The have higher movement, shoot better and fight better. Why is that strange? It's not. It's the degree of difference that is the problem. Why? If you dont like it, dont play it. It really isnt harder tha...

Math really isnt my strong side so thank you for calculating it for me, I´ll take your word for it. But surely the dreadlord is better if he can manage a higher average with 4 attacks (3.45) than the chaos lords 6 (3.33)? Then there is the mounts of course on top of that. Still, damage output isnt ...

1. I would say that re-rolls to hit in combination with murderous prowess is where the big difference is. The dreadlord has almost no way of whiffing his attacks and with S6 (even better with giant blade) you have pretty much 100% wounds with the re-rolls of 1´s. Dreadlord with Ogre Blade has 4 att...

I agree, Swedish is lighter on WOC, but that's that nature of pretty much all comps - they rarely make all armies equal, more change where the bar is.


You just made my point for me. Thank you.

Furthermore i've the feeling the swedish comp favours WoC more then other armies.... Agreed. I've played against high Swede comp WoC armies that are still very tough. Here's a prime example of why Swede Comp is totally screwed up: Dark Elf Dreadlord on Cold One with Sea Dragon Cloak, Ogre Blade, Ar...

I love Swedish (and comp in general). It makes me write different lists. Swedish is an entirely different meta. You can't (usually) just take your standard list and apply scores to it. You build a list to the comp I understand that. But it doesn't mean I like it. Whilst I agree that there are some ...

I like how swed comp works, saying you can take 1-2 crazy combos, but not all them. If that's the goal, I think it's better just to have a comp system that actually says "you can take 1-2 crazy combos, but not all them." That's what ETC does explicitly, which I think is better than layeri...

I hate to say it, but if I had to choose, I would prefer a an ETC-style comp system. I don't think the Swede Comp system is very accurate with respect to the various numerical penalties it tries to impose, and I think it's a nearly impossible job to get it right. If you want some form of comp restri...

Looking good. Definitely want to see the finished product.

I have to say that blonde hair on a Dark Elf is odd for me though.

Yes they are very good. My issue is that there are powerful units in other armies that get off very light. Gorebeast Chariots and Nurgle-marked Chaos Warriors are a couple that come to mind immediately. The more exposure I have to the system the more it just seems really arbitrary and I don't think ...

I agree that there are a lot of tweaks I could make to save comp points. But that just highlights one of the things I don't like about the system. It adds another layer of calculation that needs to be "gamed." And aside from that, the comp hits just aren't proportional to power level. They...

No.

What matters is the whether the models you are attacking have ASF (or high initiative). Other models in the combat don't matter for that purpose.

The shipping cost was a little higher than for Europeans, but the end cost was massively below that of Australian GW prices. GW fixed that hole a while back by placing a lega...

I've mostly been playing my Lizards lately but am feeling the urge to play Dark Elves more. I put together a 2500 list last night based on models I have that I thought would be competitive. Definitely a hard list, but I don't think it's super-powered: Supreme Sorceress, Level 4, Lore of Shadow, Sac ...
