D.R.A.I.C.H. - Complementary material
This sectiion last updated and links checked 8/10/2010. See individual sections for details

I’m still looking for help in developing ideas for sub-titles and other subject matter. As well as adding additional content for the different areas of interest that is currently in place.

If you know of a forum out there send me the link, especially if its in a non-English language and I will add it or know of an interesting topic of interest that does not fit into any of the more traditional sections we’ll find a place for it here or create one…

Proposed sub-titles are in red
Link Check = I clicked every link to make sure it still works. If you find a dead link please PM me
last update = new content added
correction made = content was either deleted or corrected
The Violet color means sub-titles have enough content to stand on its own

Recommended common practices and weirdness
Magic
** Magic-based Army in 8th..........................Winning Magic-Based Army Analysis

Army FAQs observations:

** General observations:
*** All canons do d6 wounds now, per the normal rules...interesting though that one of the Dwarf Master Engineers abilities is to allow Canons to do d6 wounds.


** High Elfs:
*** All High Elves do essentially have Eternal Hatred, even those with Great Weapons.
*** High Elf magic bows are magical attacks, Wood Elf bows seem to have no such ability.


** Warriors of Chaos:
*** Chaos Warshrines do not have Thunderstomp!. But the Corpse Cart still has it! So a rickety wagon full of carcasses can Thunderstomp! But a hell-forged contraption blessed by the gods of Chaos can't


** Empire:
*** Engineer now just needs to be near a warmachine to allow a re-roll. Which is good, since you can't join a warmachine now. Neat if you have a battery on a hill. Just stick an Engineer near them all and use the reroll when best needed.
*** Steam Tank is classified as a Chariot now instead of a Unique as in the back of the rulebook. Hey, the book just came out and it's already invalidated and incorrect!
*** Steam Tanks are T10 again!
*** Big issue with Steam tank being immune to spells without strength value. Since they rewrote the entire rules passage in FAQ does this now mean the immune to magic rule is void. [color=red]edit (7/16/10)
The entire rules passage wasn't really re-written, just the profile and applicable special rules. The ST's immunity to spells without a Strength value was never in either of those sections. It's in the section listed on how to play the ST in the Magic phase, which according to the FAQ has not been changed or omitted. Unlike, for example, how to treat the ST in the Movement and Shooting phases which have had some corrections done. So that section remains intact and the ST is still immune to spells without a Strength value.

** Ogre Kingdoms:
*** Ogres are no longer Dogs of War.


** Skaven :
*** slaves now take panic tests caused by other Skaven slaves.
*** Anyone in base contact with Skaven bearing Censers take the gas test, not just if they're in combat.
*** Moonstone of the Hidden Ways can be used to leave combat AND can be used in the opponent's movement phase.


** Vampire Counts:
*** The Banshee Howl takes 'Strength in Numbers' into account.
*** If a unit with a Vampire wearing the Helm of Commandment is in combat, the Vampire counts as engaged (even if not in combat).
*** Carstein Ring works against being sucked into the void!

Mea Errati or FAQ for Dummies or what I learned last week that I should have already known

The idea of this section is to bare your soul and admit that after years of playing you learned something new and are willing to share so other may learn from your mistakes.

I’m still trying to figure out how to organize this so bear with me this may go through a few iterations.

New abbreviations
I've taken a stab at consolidating a list of abbreviations. Since I'm new to this I thought abbreviations through a new set of eyes would be useful. Since some of the old-timers know these like a second language what is obvious to you may not be obvious to someone new like me. You’ll also notice there are some I don’t know – to my point above – so the abbreviation is there with no definition. If you send me what you think it might be I'll update the list below. If you think something is missing by all means let me know and I will update the list.

Thanks for your help

    Good start.
    Don't forget to take into the thread what has been already collected so far:

    TOC - Complementary material

    A new idea: what about to collect the weirdies? I mean, any funny idea, still linked with the new army book, but that doesn't help winning the game?
    Example 1: How can a dreadlors by more dumb than his cold one? (and Malus adds: I can help the CO, I cannot do anything for the Lord...);
    Example 2: the poor's dragon = peggy + dragon's egg.
    Example 3 & 4: see Sorceress in two places at once?

    I'm still looking for anyone who may have content that is appropriate for this section.
    Changes
    1. I've added a link last check date. which is basically the date I made sure the links in that section were checked? If you find a dead link please let me know.
    2. Abbreviations was updated
    3. New section - Druchii Terms.
    4. Cult of Slaanesh - The Cult of Pleasure now has its own dedicated section.
    5. Added a few more translation websites
    6. The game club section has grown. If you have a club and want to add it to this section send me your link and I will add it. this section has been cool since I've had a chance to see how other people do things.
    7. More updates to the "The Antagonists" again more interesting view on how our enemies view the world from there point of view.
    8. Odds and Ends - added a GW Release Rumors link. This group has a nice thread on release rumors including an 8th edition prediction.

    that is it for now... Dec will be a slow month for updates.

    As always any additional suggestions are welcomed

    I'm still looking for anyone who may have content that is appropriate for this section.
    Changes
    1. Trying to stay up on checking links and review the content to weed out what is not relevant.
    2. Move the vocabulary section under the Library of knowledge. Was not getting much traction on this section and replaced it with links to tournaments.
    3. Playing with a new section - Mea Errati or FAQ for Dummies or what I learned last week that I should have already known. This is not meant as a rehash over rules or FAQs but more a, if I had remembered this rule the outcome of the game may have been different. Not sure how this will work yet... so look for change also if you have a content you would like to provide please do.
    4. Added a few more forum links

    That is it for now....

    As always any additional suggestions are welcomed

    At the abbreviations part you should put in another subtitle: magic items.
    The guiding eye for example is not a spell ;)

    Just to point some things out:
    The Guiding Eye has 3 abbreviations (tGE, EYE, GE), which is, IMO, more than is needed.
    We've always used HvA as "heavy artillery" - but if it's correct I cannot say.
    It's reaper and not repeater bolt throwers now.
    Also I've seen (but not sure if they are used here) these:

    BA - Blood Armour
    Cwo - Unequipped CO knights without command group
            (Cold ones without)
    MoP - Master on Pegasus
    RoHC - Righ of Hotek champion
    SoP - Sorceress on pegasus (SSoP for supreme sorceress)
    TFC - Tzeentch's flying circus (screamer army)
    WMD - A 100 points item (Weapon of mass destruction)
    (Heard once on a tournament, went like this: A player was describing a 2250 battle against HE. He said something like: "He had a mage lord with some arcane WMD, 'twas a tough <an expression that describes a female canine>.")

    should or shouldn't some of these be included is up to the mods' decision - of course - this post is meant nearly as an inert statement of possibilty.

    I don't think WMD should apply only to a 100 point item...it should be anything with a huge potential to destroy. I'm also wondering about Cwo. If it's standing for Cold Ones Without...(I prefer Vanilla CoKs myself)...shouldn't it be 'CoW'? *shrugs* It does seem to be a popular thing to have CoWs in your list these days...^^

    Wow, thousands of years of evolution climaxed as the elves discovered... a cow. Nonetheless I presume that the abbreviation started as COwo(wo -without) in a pair with COw (Cold ones with) and later, the capital O was dropped as well as COw. Just my hunch, though.

    And the huge potential hypothesis seems more reasonable, than the 100 pts. *shrugs* then *shrugs again*.
