Ok first things first. -Lord Uramael i agree 100% with what you said to linda and whaledawg -Linda your views are just as valid as everyone else's. I myself seem to sit between both camps on this one. On one side i am with the maths they show that dark elfs can't hold on their own, however i agree ...

It could be a good way, but simply make it as: whenever you have less WS you hit on 5+ ? goblins aren't the only unit we have trouble with point wise :). As an O&G player, are the druchii players giving you a challenge? as a night gobbo player i can say OH YES!! the fact that on turn one i have...

Thanks Crimson Death. :) I think that in order to characterize us better, GW should make cityguard part of our core list, not part of just a specialized force. Should then make warriors just 7 points, with spears and shields upgradeable. They wouldn't have to change anything as far as models go, and...

Pistoliers are good, very good in fact (My other army is Empire and I have 2 units of 6, with boss/repeater pistol, very nasty on the charge!), but they are nowhere near as godd as Dark riders Well first off, I thought I should point out that I am very impressed by the way this thread has headed.

Yep, the list is quite old already and gets a facelifting in the new Annual 2003. But I absolutely think it's a fine and balanced army mostly. Yes Waywatchers are good, but they are supposed to be the best scouts out there! The only thing in the list I really do not agree with, is the cost of the A...

Magic armour cost is 5 pts per +1, this is very consistent throughout all the army books, with the high save armours not being combineable with other armour usually. Basically, the Armour of Darkness does get a disadvantage (shield included) for free. ;) If that silly sentence was dropped, the Armo...

I beleive we are in agreement on this. A couple of clarifications: First of all, your stats are fine, but as you ably demonstrate that is why when you charge gobblins you minimize their frontage but maximize yours. So IOW you fight a 6 goblin front. The corsairs kill approx 2:1 with goblins with ha...

Thanks for the kind words. Perhaps I will continue to write batreps if people like them. Its just a lot of work if no-one cares about it, even if it is for personal satisfaction. :P

I do not understand how you can think that 20 corsairs can "toast" 28 goblins with spears. Let's see what will happen most times when the corsairs charge: Corsairs attack- 11 attacks (5 wide w/ 2 hand weapons plus champion) 2/3 hits, 7 hits 1/2 wounds, 3.5 wounds 1/3 saves, about 2 kills Goblins at...

sorcerus(on foot) You know you can get a cream that'll clear that right up. :lol: :D :D :lol: :lol: I'll get it for you... Anyway get some corsairs, that and DR are the best unit I've bought for 1k games. You've got a nice hard hitting hydra, if you want to get started right away thats what I'd do....

I've searched for them on an army builder but couldn't get my hands on the stats... :cry: Could someone help me for this... Thanks For th...

Sorry for the two in a row, but I want to make my points clear. One on one a unit of 20 corsairs will almost always win combat and 50% of the time rundown a goblin unit of 20 armed with spears, shield, light armour. That's approximately 100 points gained for the potential death of a corsair. Ok its ...

Linda- You are correct about the fear test. However, the same example is possible using Hobgoblins, Clanrats, Ork boys, and any number of other cheap units. Also, it is quite possible that the gobbos would even pass the check (with a general nearby)! Also, my point was not to compare the two units ...

To retro for me. I liked the WE miniatures that GW made, the half naked ones with torn fishnet stockings better. Much more modern Heavy Metalish if you ask me.

Not that I can carve worth crap, or that I can see her 3D from that pic.

I rarely use the full allotment for my highborns either, usually gauntlet and enchanted shield (if not mounted on CO) with sea cloak, heavy armour etc. But if I had available a 4+ ward save I may think about it. My friend loads his dwarf lords up, and I don't blame him. If I want to trounce his lord...

Something was nagging my mind a few days ago and so I looked again and I was right. In the Dwarf book you can get a rune of gromril, which gives you a +1 AS for 25 points. Us DE get the Armour of Darkness which gives us a +2 AS for guess what 25 points. :shock: Ahh, there IS a slight difference her...

Langman, consider this example: 20 corsairs (5x4) charge 30 goblins (5x6). Both units have full command. Turn 1: Corsairs attack first with 11 attacks. 2/3 hit, so 7 hits. 1/2 wound, so 3.5 wound. Gobos save 1/2 (hw+sheild), so 1.75 dead. Goblins strike back with 4 attacks. 1/2 hit, so 2 hits. 1/2 ...

My only hope in the sanity of GW lies in the fact that they seemed to realize that raising a dwarfs toughness from 5 to 6 is a big advantage, and made that upgrade 75 points (its usually 50 points to raise T by one. I think for DE it should cost 25 points to raise our T by 1, but anyway.)

--Not to parrot FallenAngel's response, but I also feel that you have slightly overstated the Druchii strengths. Core: Warriors. Diciplined, skilled but fragile and weak. However, they add the ranks needed to win combats and are most commonly used as a part of an attack, not a unit that is designed...

Now I am confused - are you trying to tell me that the Ld10 combat simulator thinks that Corsairs are likely to beat Dwarfs with Heavy Armour, Shield and Hand Weapons? I've done this myself, and statistically speaking, Corsairs can expect to lose to those Dwarfs, even when they charge (or in subseq...
