I'm unfamiliar with these 10 other methods. All I know is that If you can interbreed and have fertile offspring you're close enough to be considered the same species. There are exceptions of course for genetically similar populations separated irredeemably by geography , (like caribou and reindeer)...

Weird miniatures? They are all from games workshop! I don't like the hydra but guess it makes it's place on the battlefield (though beware, the base is not correct size). It's not the same as the base the new one comes on, but there's no actual rule (that I know of) that requires a chariot base. Mo...

Milney, back right down. You want to start getting nasty with people, you come through me. What did I say that was nasty? No it doesn't. A simple statement, explicitly stating an (percieved or not) incorrect statement. You can't just say "It says hand weapon therefore it is a hand weapon"...

Why does an Assassin have to be black? I HATE that common misconception. Dark Elf Assassins are not members of, say, the Discworld Assassins guild - punished for straying from the "uniform". They are meant to adapt and blend in to the armies they are fighting for and against. If an army is...

The FAQ was done just over 2 years ago and now they started re-introducing Magic Weapons with the very clear rule "Hand Weapon" this is definitely a change in how they do things and thus should be considered when going with the FAQ's ruling. Since it has "Hand Weapon" in its rul...

And ever since the Daemon book, we have Magic Weapons that are also Hand Weapons, thus they gain the Parry Bonus when on foot and using a shield and an extra attack when used with a second hand weapon. Whip of Agony is a Beastmaster's Scourge which is also a Hand Weapon. So Whip of Agony + Enchante...

Amazing. I'm not normally a fan of NMM (or SENMM for that matter) but your work always makes me think twice. The only thing I would comment on is the skin tone, which although nicely pale and "otherworldly" (as a 300 year old child of Slaanesh should look) does have the ffect of having his...

More than 6 levels of magic combined with harpies/dark riders/shades only is the only one I can think of. For the rest, if people complain about it I genuinely think they have severe issues with objective thinking. I've never understood the arbitrary cut-off point of "6 levels of Magic" t...

Pendant High Sorceresses are great! People who can't see the uses are doing a massive disservice to themselves. Not only does it offer equal-to-or-better protection against all the miscasts you can protects against that a 5+ ward would, but against mage hunters it gives a far better use. Then you ha...

Currently killing myself to get the 3 colours/based minimum on my army. It's going to look fairly poor, but at least it'll have all the slog work done so I can take my time and finish them off after the tourney xD

I better get them all done on time for Saturday >.< See you guys there :P
