Don't worry too much about the amount of work, thanks to current open source software like wordpress and joomla and others setting up a website is a breeze. If needed, I can knock things up VERY quickly for no cost. It's when you want custom programming when the real headaches start. So what do you ...

That could work, would be sweet to use beastmasters then for handlers, would be great for a beast themed army...

What model is that, a kroxigor? And what did you use for the cauldron bit?

I can help out on the programming/web development section, but time being a limiting factor, I don't do deadlines on voluntary after hours basis (I need a normal life too) so I'll need plenty of time (well, not plenty, just enough).

Warriors of Chaos maybe fit the bill, but it's the characters that do the heavy lifting in those lists. Especially in 8th where Tzeentch characters can easily get insane ward saves for a reasonable prize and still have enough kit left for decent offense. While not a necessity to go character heavy w...

In short: vs T3 light armour: +1 attack all the way vs T4 medium armour: +1 attack for elites, ward for cores vs T4 heavy armour: go with the ward unless you're executioner and strike with hatred, or don't exspect much punishment in return (flank attacks, bogged down cavalry) This makes COB less of ...

Interesting. Can you do that again and factor in a killing blow blessing from the cauldron (turn into a 1+ attack for execs).

This would then give us an idea how the numbers are effected when a cauldron is on the field, and if it's a good way to compensate for the lack of elites.

100 pts is too much for a 2 wound model. What about 200pts/225pts for a 4 wound model? That 4 wound model has a 4+ ward save (so 8 wounds), 3+ ward vs magic (so 12 wounds against magic missiles), cannot panic as long as it's frenzied, and has terror which isn't as good as it used to be, but still c...

She is still vulnerable to lots of S3 shooting, so consider using the focus familiar. Also, remember that a sorc on pegasus can join a unit of troops, so sac dagger is still an option. She can then fly out when the unit gets into combat range, so your can safely use your unit in combat.

Ah well, that's not so bad, because of the overhaul to magic anyway. The days of caddy/ring for no/low magic lists are gone. Right now 2 level 2's can provide a solid defense and offense combined. Lvl 2, ToF, Seal of Ghrond. Lvl 2, Staff of Sorcery, whatever... +3 to dispels, +1 dice in the pool. So...

That's a great list man, if all goes according to plan and you'll get all spells off. But I like the magic setup, I might steal it myself.

I'll let you know how it works.

Thanks for the feedback Timz. The merging of miscast and irresistable force is a good thing imho, so I'll be on the lookout. Now I will include mages in my force (starting with a level 4, after that possibly a level 2, have to test for balance), but if points allow it, a combat character (even a mas...

The first one would make me nervous, as it has some good shooting and magic, but you'll be outnumbered two to one usually, as you have so few bodies. Also Cauldron is weird in that list, as you have nothing to boost really except the hydra and your characters. I like the second list better and I thi...

Yes, but with the new miscast table, it's unlikely that people will cast into the ring area anyway. And yes, still targetting a spell at a unit within 12" will cause it to go off, otherwise the area of effect spells wouldn't also cause an effect. Bad wording indeed. Where's our updated magic lo...
