For me, it has to be my Cauldron of Blood. The amount of times it's allowed my units to smash through my opponents lines is uncountable. My knights and black guard particularly have munched through units in one turn where realistically it should've taken them two-three or even them losing combat. I ...

Well, considering that cold ones come from the Underworld Sea, there might be some heat source down there somewhere or maybe the sea itself has enough heat for the cold ones to survive. I don't know anything else that would allow them to survive in the extreme cold. Then again this is a fantasy game...

Just a quick note about marines. When you catch them in a sweeping advance you do not kill them automatically instead you takes as many armour saves as you lost combat by, which is what your opponent did. For clarification the rule is And They Shall Know No Fear. Also you cannot put two marine conba...

The rule that says the flyers die if they flee and land on a forest. What they can't dodge it? Fly over it? Especially bad with Dragons and such. Normally you would expect the Dragon to either just keep on flying over it or simply land and crush the trees under its bulk but for some reason one of th...

Well, Hatred says reroll all missed hits. But for anything else like Ld tests etc. then reroll all of them. So to answer your question, reroll all dice unless you see an exception in the rule like in Hatred. Hope that made sense.

Ok thanks Mr. Anderson.

Ok new revised list, I took some suggestions on board but didn't take rangers as I want to be different from other people and I don't particularly like paying 95 points for 5 shots and I get really unlucky with my rolls anyway for 40k. Also my Wraithlords do indeed have twin flamers. Doom was not me...

I'd get rid of the Autarch and put in a Farseer with Guide, Doom, Runes of Witnessing and Spirit Stones. Makes your units a lot more effective especially against Marines and similar armies, the more saves they have to take the better. I'd get rid of the vectored engines on the wave serpents to make ...

Personally I'd get rid of the centigors and dragon ogres and replace them with 2 herds and 2 units of hounds as in my opinion have enough heavy hitters and this list doesn't really need centigors IMO. Also I'd replace power stones with something else but I just don't like them so if you do like them...

Simply, they are the most boring army to play with and against. They only have one Troops choice and one HQ choice (not including the C'tan). Plus everyone takes a Resurrection Orb (which makes for a very boring game IMO). Way to beat them usually remains the same, by phasing them out which is quite...

Personally, I think the Rangers are not needed in such a small points game as you have somehting counter just about anything you'll face in 500pts. I'd go with 10 Dire Avengers in a Wave Serpent with upgrades and such fitted to your liking instead of the rangers. They will let you deal with hordes, ...

The Banshee's scream works like this. The VC player rolls 2d6+2 and for every point that beats your leadership value that's how many wounds you take with no armour saves or more importantly without a strength value. Also it has an 8" range so most of the time the stand and shoot will be resolve...

Actually the only thing official about the FAQ's are the Errata. The FAQ's are essentially house rules that you use when at Tournaments etc where you don't have common house rules.
