Re: My Dark Elves on eBay

For those potentially interested, the last of my Dark Elf stuff is now posted on eBay including some rare models -- Mengi Manhide's Manflayers and Ltd. Ed. Malus Darkblade on foot.

Farewell to Warhammer

I have not been on this board for months. A combination of being very busy in real life and being generally disenchanted with GW and Warhammer soured me on the hobby. It started with the crazy prices for the last Dark Elf release, and the whole End Times thing just smelled bad to me ... I have tried...

Re: Mount Murderous Prowess?

The rule for Murderous Prowess specifically says that it does not apply to mounts, so "Riders Only" would be redundant.

Re: Thoughts on Swedish Comp

Seems like under your analysis Swede comp would always "win" Yes, I think comp makes Warhammer better. I thought this was quite clear from all the things I have already written here. It is quite clear. But you miss my point. Whether or not you believe comp is a good thing in general, if s...

Simple.

It should be listed either in the "Special Rule" section of the Rulebook, or that it be listed as a "Special Rule" in the unit entry of an Army Book.

Re: Flaming Sword of Ruin and Breath Weapon

Page 66 of the Rulebook says that the list of Special Rules in that section is not exhaustive. But the reason given is that "Many troop types have their own unique abilities laid out in their Warhammer Armies book." I think it's a stretch to say that anything not contained in the first 63 ...

Re: Flaming Sword of Ruin and Breath Weapon

There is an entire section of the Rulebook called "Special Rules." Most people I know play that if a spell conveys an ability listed in the "Special Rules" section of the Rulebook, that does not apply to Stomps and Breath Weapons (per the FAQ quoted by Haagrum). But if a spell co...

Either he finds out his army does not work and abandons the deathstar in which case comp wins. Or he is successful with the rarely used units, showing that they have actually a good potential and giving the others the courage to use them more in which case comp wins. How is it a "win" for...

Exactly. Makes him much more vulnerable to even low strength attacks since he has to face so many more of them.

Nice report.

In all the official GW pics, Glottkins' base is wider than it is deep -- looks like your opponent has the base oriented the wrong way.

Re: Karl Franz Ascendant

Sadly, I think the most reasonable solution that involves killing KFA is probably to feed KFA a unit champion when he charges, hold on Steadfast, then 6-dice Okkam's Mindrazor onto the unit and hope for irresistible force. ... and this is a great illustration of why comp systems that nerf magic are...

Re: Witch Elves and Hags attacks

Spit Fire is nearly worthless because you will almost always need a 6 to hit. The attack only has a range of 8", meaning that most of the time you will need to move in order to get within range. Unless you move within 4" of the enemy, you will need 6 to hit (-1 move, -1 range, -1 multishot...

Well, the rationale seems to encourage deathstar vs deathstar and may whoever has the biggest win. I understand that some people like that. And some find it incredibly boring to play that way ...

All magic is 5 PD max, but all death spells and specifically mindrazor is 4 PD max. Fair or not is a matter of judgement and preference I guess...

Re: Karl Franz Ascendant

Between regular attacks and Thunderstomp Karl Franz should kill or break a 10-strong Witch Elf unit in a single combat round (2 if you have a champ to challenge and hold him up).

Got a model to represent Malekith?

Destroy his weapon round 1 and Karl's toast.

So the event you are prepping for allows Karl Franz Ascendant but is capping magic at 4 dice per spell ?!?!?!?!?

Honestly, I would not attend such an event.

Re: Karl Franz Ascendant

I would try this:

Shadow magic, Warlocks + lots of shooting. Hit him with Withering and/or Soulblight and your shooting suddenly has the ability to hurt him more reliably. Try to strip away a few wounds with shooting, charge him with something and then 6-dice Mindrazor.
