Re: next end times book

Are these new models? Not very familiar with the HE range, but I don't recognize these. They are kitbashed from the High elf lord and mage plastic boxes, with a bit of BG/Executioners. (I think there might be some bitz from the HE dragon rider(s), white lions and dragon princes as well...) Yeah, th...

Re: WTF Alith Anar

As noted above, he is just a fairly soft lord level hero with a really big bow that shoots 36" like a S-7 bolt thrower. He has hatred versus DE and a DE unit suffers a -1 to their leadership to the end of the phase if they suffer a wound from the bow.

Re: My poofy high elves go to a tournament - 2400

Is this list for an upcoming event? If so what is the swedish comp target you are willing to go to? The list looks solid without any of the normal HE crutches that are normal seen. BoTWD, frost phoenix etc. A second eagle might help if you can find the points and it doesn't knock the comp score bad...

Re: How would you rate the new HE army book?

I think that they are a really solid army. A bit of a learning curve to make everything work together and figure out what is the right selection for your playstyle. However, in the hands of an experienced general (and I know some will disagree with me), I think they are a top tier army. Until WoC s...

Re: How would you rate the new HE army book?

I was looking at some reviews and most of the changes seem reasonable except for the wards which are just plain nasty. Also I think that swordmasters are now far more balanced, i.e. they are slightly more resistant to shooting (with ward and buffs) but they have normal ASF which just makes sense. T...

Re: medusa

Re: Winning the Deployment Phase

Lots of drops is a good thing, but not everything. Factoring the terrain into your plan is most important, and matching up your most appropriate units against his certainly helps. I used 10 man units of spears with great effect. they go down first as chaff, and then got used as screens for my witch ...

A really dumb question about dispeling

Reading though the rules for dispel value (pg 35) it says that a failed dispel attempt means that the caster cannot dispel again that phase, so either another caster must make the next attempt or it is made without a mage level modifier. Is that correct? I have never played it that way, but also on ...

Re: Terror Bomb?

it works, but it is very random, and you cant depend on it. Also against armies that have multiple ITP unit's, also fear causing units are common these days, and they render the tactic pretty much usless. I used to stick the wailing banner or mask of eee on CoKs for running down people's flanks. Fo...

Re: Usher of the Black Wind (1K vs HE, Skaven, VC)

OK, 1K of stylish but fun DE. CoKs are good. A unit of 5 with a muso is cheap and very flexible. Alternately you can run a larger unit of 9 with a character in it. Harpies are good, with most people making their own out of demonettes and the winds off tyranid gargoyles or these dark eldar guys with ...

Re: My poofy high elves go to a tournament - 2400

I think i will go with beasts. I've has some success with amber spear and can see it working well versus monstrous cavalry and other critters.

Comp of 13.3 with beasts will keep me away from the harder lists initially.

Re: how do I beat the new high elves?

Outshooting HE is entirely possible - but not if he's playing the same game, then it's heavily influenced by who goes first. HE don't have any boosters to magic dice any more, so Dark/PoD/Sac dagger will work well versus them. Apart from miasma, shadow does nothing, so a change in lore is what is n...
