Re: 5000 pt End Times DE v Lizardman (2 turns only)

Calisson - no problem at all! It's my first stab at writing a battle rep, but believe me, I'm a 43 year old gamer playing since Rogue Trader, not a thin-skinned noob I suspect my gamer circle is going to play the magic item list, too. It just totally blind-sided me, the idea that you couldn't choose...

Re: 5000 pt End Times DE v Lizardman (2 turns only)

Interesting, I just read the rationale for why list-specific magic items are disallowed for ET lists. And, while I'm convinced this is the correct rules interpretation, no one in my group will want to play that way. I, personally, would be happy to give up BotWD for my buddy not being able to bring ...

Re: Magic Items for Khaine

You've convince me that on a RAW basis, list specific items are disallowed. My two cent opinion is that, on a ROI basis, GW intends that you can take, say, dark elf list specific magic items for dark elves taken in a ET: K Hosts army. My two cent reason for believing this is that, GW has a tendency ...

Re: 5000 pt End Times DE v Lizardman (2 turns only)

Calisson - you absolutely correct, my army was an Host of the Eternity King, not a DE army. I get sloppy with my terminology sometimes. Often. I haven't written a battle report before :)

5000 pt End Times DE v Lizardman (2 turns only)

So, my buddy and I fought 5000 points, his lizards vs my dark elves. We only played two rounds (we're kinda old guys, and it was getting late). But there was killing and death, ranks of models crushing lines, lessons to be learned, and a lot of fun had. WARNING: I'm not really used to writing these ...

Re: It is time to state your allegiance.

Amusingly, those High Elf playing schmucks over at ulthuan.net are having more of an identity crisis than we :)

(I say "schmuck" with all the love and kindness I have in my Dark Elf playing heart)

Re: It is time to state your allegiance.

Hail to the Uniter of the Three Nations of the Eldar! Hail to the King ... Not the one we want, but the One We Need! The Eternity King Serious, though, I love his stay line ... Can't wait to ram his dragon-riding-butt down Nagash's throat. And I enjoyed the read from the book well enough. The real p...

The only luck I've had with this unit is 7 wide, in the middle of the line, push them forward. Don't bother w/ these guys v orks, ogres, Chaos-Warrior-Heavy chaos, deamons ... even against high elves with Speed of Asurman, they tend to get cut down before they strike. Really, they're designed to go ...

Oh, interesting, I missed the whole '3+' ward save. Ouch! OK, his whole strategy depends on the two war shrines, yes? He's looking for that good roll. What about a manticore or dragon mounted hero/lord? Bait the chosed until you can get a charge in on the warshrines with said bad-ass. Even if you on...

Interestingly enough, I was playing lunch-hammer with a friend who's just getting into the game. He wanted to play DE, so I played WoC (my two armies.) He ended up stuffing my chaos warriors (not chosen, but still had the mark of khorne!!) with spears after squeezing off the Word of Pain spell! Coul...

My Two Cents

I've fought a number of battles against Vamps with DE now (literally, half the players in the area are running vamp lists now.) I have the following observations to make: 1) I don't think shooting is very effective at all against vamps. I reguarly leave all my shooting at home any more. The problem ...
