Ive touched on the subject of Harpies many times in this forum over the last few years last time in a topic about ''mammoth units'' m The Harpies are incredibly versatile in regards to control but should never really be put into combat unless your certain they can make a sufficuent dent in the oppon...

it was actually a pretty commonly used tactic by alot of DE players back when we still had the 6th ed book. When the 7th ed book came out all the tactical stuff vanished and the ''Tactics'' forum became a ASF BG discussion board. Alot of very good tactics that were perfectly viable in 7th and now in...

You could model up an Ogre Bull to wear somewhat more Druchii'ish equipment. Or alternatively You could model it as a slave.


Or you could go with a Palanquin carried by either slaves or Dark Elf Warriors.

It depends what your list aswell as your playstyle looks like. I think that now with the new edition My assassins will probably get to spend a game or two on the shelf. Do love the little nasties though. If you have something in your army that could need the support by a character that does not chew...

On both RxB's and on Spearelves Im going with shields for the sole reason it looks better. Besides that in my group theres alot of base units with STR4 or AP so a 6+ save means nothing. Technically giving Spearelves shields pretty much translates into the unit having 1 less rank in total and on aver...

It really depends on the people you play with. Theres are all sorts of player groups out there.

The main problem I see with this is that your opponent only has to use 6 inches to get outside of your box. The remaining 2-4 inches can allow them to slowly turn towards your army. On top of this, if they charge and roll a 7 that is average of 11 inches giving them 6 inches of wheeled movement out...

The Death Star does however have one weakness regardless which army have built it. It is very vulnerable to MSU armies. Not that the MSU army can usually effectively kill it but more that the MSU army has plenty of expendable cheap stuff to keep the Death Star from killing anything of value while th...

I picked Guerilia because its the closest to what I actually play. I have lots and lots of Shades, DR's, Harpies and all my chars(mostly Sorcs) are on DP's. I only very rarely use my rare choices. So basically what I play is Skirmish-Guerilia warfare. This is IMO what the DE's does best and this uni...

Shield improves your armour by +1. Theres no additional effects of any kind.
Hand weapons however have a special bonus of +1 armor if the wielder is on foot and also using a shield.
Its not the shield that has the added benefit its the hand weapon that has it.
