Blondshade, if you want to read some fluff about really badass DE, I would highly recommend the Malus Darkblade novels. It's pretty much six novels of watching the guy take out armies by himself. Anyway, the reason that DE are portrayed as getting their asses kicked all the time is because the major...

As a whole, I like the article. The only comment, I had was concerning the wizarding hat. I am by no means advocating the use of this item, and I understand the reasoning behind your comments. However, I think that saying it's completely worthless, may be a bit too harsh. With 8th edition magic, the...

Welcome to druchii.net, Zanthorn Mist Walker!

The list seems to be looking pretty good. I would, however, recommend a few tweaks: If you like the COB BSB, I would highly recommend switching out your death hag for her. Your current death hag can essentially be killed by rank and file soldiers, since they can direct all their supporting attacks i...

Put shields on the 16 RXBs, since you're going to need that if you win the roll off in hold the tower scenario. You can get these points from dropping the 2+ Ward item off the BG unit champion, since I honestly doubt people are going to be attacking a unit champion with a flaming sniper spell. What ...

Welcome to druchii.net Ezu!! That is a nasty list of comp restrictions. A Pegasus is a monstrous beast, not a monstrous creature, so it's only -17 to comp.

I'd pick the lv 2 and the master setup. Make the lv 2 a scholar(tome of furion, seal of ghrond) and put her in the crossbows, and you'll have a fairly good casting phase. I find that Metal and shadow are great lores against WOC. I would go with the executioners instead of WEs, since they will more l...

I would keep crown of command, since that way you can use the guy as offensive support and as a wall.

Vaul is often represented in fantasy and 40k fluff as the god of the smithies. Generally, we read stories about how he forged the ultimate sword or ultimate bow or something like that.

Good catch! That is something worth worrying about. I would put standards in those crossbowmen. I would suggest also dropping the shades down to 7, since I find that 7 is generally a good number. It is also a multiple of 14, your holy number. ;)
