 Forum: Druchii Tactics & Army Discussion   Topic: Corsair Army Fluff and Tactics in new dex

Comparison between corsairs and ordinary DE need to take into account that with hatred, corsair re-roll two attacks when most other units reroll only 1. So the pts evaluation of hatred should be higher. This explains the apparent high cost of corsairs: they benefit more than other units from hatred....

You're right:
both are arcane. :?
We really need to have the book in hand before any sound tactics can be thought about.

@dggrj - thanks for the answers. Clarifications below: "2 CoC"? - No, only 1. It takes up a single special slot, or possibly none at all if a Master can have it as special-free mount (still unsure). I considered it a good idea to take a CoC for a noble, hence providing a better Ld to overc...

Sure! If the opponent has little shooting, that's OK. You could even mount the sorc on a DS and jump from this unit to a similar one in vicinity, in case it was threaten. Against heavy shooting, I would add a shield, or consider to take corsairs instead. Another option is to hide the cheap unit behi...

I saw somewhere: Master” The Beastmaster is gone. No longer there as either a character or an upgrade. Instead the new "Master" is the new generic Hero with more upgrades than you can shake a stick at. So I understand that you can take a Master as simple (and cheap) as possible with the Ma...

I just noticed that the UK websites has updated their range of DE models. Now harpies are listed as core. Most new minis appear with "preorder". Assassins, new sorc, new CO-mounted heroes, new corsairs are there. http://uk.games-workshop.com/storefront/store.uk?do=List_Models&code=22&a...

About the question of which specials to choose, many of you answered, revealing yourselves probably as long-time gamers who own already the whole range of minis and look for the most competitive army. My perspective is a more modest one, but may be shared by many. Although I am playing only non-comp...

Luckily, as I play usually against shooty opponents, corsairs are good to resist that.
I love the fluff of corsairs. Let's see what special ability is brought by the new octopus Master.

I always loose against my son's dwarven army. He plays as many cannons and catapults as he can. Rest of the army is half heavily armoured, half shooting with crossbows and handuns. When played over 2000, I know he will play his Anvil of Doom loaded with all the runes he can to make it practically im...

Lokhir Fellheart will perfectly work out with the fluff I want to give to my army. So glad Corsairs finally have their own special character!

Should be legal for official tournaments as well, as GW allows all conversions using GW parts, and the demonettes heads will not alter the WYSIWYG character of the converted hydra.

@getwisteerd The step was a big mistake of mine. I averaged instead of summing up, so the result was divided by 3 or 4. Thanks to you, I edited the initial post, which should be accurate now... and much more interesting with a huge increase in the expectations! The conclusions stay the same. The mor...

@ hyetemplar Let's take 3 level-2 sorc, that have 8 die together. Without PoD, they cast 24 2-die spells in a game (assuming they survived...), each with 1/36 chance of miscast. Less than once a game. With 3 2-die PoD cast each turn, they gain 14 more die in the full game... Assuming all of these ad...

Reading this thread, I found many incomplete maths about the new Power of Darkness "O level" spell, leading to hasty conclusions. Lets examine how many die you gained after 36 PoD casts, casting 1 or 2 die. Cast................1 dice.....2 die miscast.............0/36......1/36 (actually l...

Only the fluff changes.

Many dies are needed for WH and WH40K.

Very small dies ...

The figure to take into account is the AUTHORIZED limit, not the actual total. If you plan for a 2000 battle, then you can take a Lord, event if your final total is 1950 pts. On the other hand, if you plan for a battle with a 1999 limit, that means that no Lord is authorized. In every case, you are ...

All what I said applies to RoR as well as DoW. Giants are the only exception mentioned in what I read. From what I read, - they are very cautious to let all options open, - but they (who are really "they"?) clearly consider to remove DoW as a legal entry for non-DoW armies (except giants)....

In the French GW website one, there is an insight about the future of DoW availability for non-DoW armies, found in a document providing clarifications for tournaments. The French document, dated 04/04/2008, is found there: http://fr.games-workshop.com/telechargement/warhammer/jeu/Conventions_wh_04-...
