I played a game yesterday vs Warriors of Chaos and my opponent had a big block of scary Warriors of Nurgle with an Exalted Hero in it. Lvl 4 Sorceress w/ Lore of Metal removed 10 or so with Searing Doom, then cast Plague of Rust on them, then next turn cast Transmutation of Lead on them - so their 3...

OK SO: played two game with this list, one was a 200 pt loss, one was a 2000 point victory. 200 pt loss wasn't really my fault however, the game was a very very bad one: game type we rolled for was Battle for the Pass, and we rolled for a river, which we thought would be cool to have going across th...

If we're considering dropping more units for more standards for the silly game type I suppose in that sense it would behoove you to remove the harpies for the banners. Seems like you're of the opinion that I should just screw that silly game type and use the list as-is - and in the one-in-six chanc...

Indeed! a unit panicking nearby and the rest of the army saying "meh" and "heh stupid harpies" is always worth a chuckle on the battlefield. So are you of the opinion that I should nix something else in favor of the second squad of harpies? Liiiikeee......... crossbows....? there...

Agreed!

More harpies in favor of fewer shades, though? Shades are awesome!

In a related note, I was reading through the game types and rediscovered "Blood and Glory" - in it, an army has a "breaking point" equal to 1 for every thousand points the army has, rounded up. In the case of this army, it would be three. It then is given a fortitude equal to 1 f...

It's true that the Ring of Hotek isn't as good as it used to be @ defending against magic. But, what you can do is take your Master and park him behind the enemy wizards - because he/she/it will almost definitely be in a unit, and force the wizard to be affected or move forward to still cast. You me...

That's weird.

The only other thing I can see wrong on yours - which is also my fault - is that my BG hav...

Yes indeed, one more Shade to make two units of 5 would be nice. That would be better than nice, in fact. I really want to do that. However, the only thing I could really get rid of would be one of the units of harpies. For a refresher, here's the list again... Supreme Sorceress, lvl 4 w/ Pegasus, D...

Lifetaker's an awesome one and that'd be pretty cool gi...

Dear D.net, 8th edition frustrates me. I've only played one game, and it was against the Lizardmen. My opponent hadn't ever played 8th either. There were a handful of things we did wrong, mostly dealing with cavalry - specifically the Swiftstride and Vanguard rules - and a few other things like how ...

Alas, I lost. He got about 1600 points, and I got about 800. But it wasn't my fault: I rolled atrociously. My Lord on the Manticore was held up by a unit of cavalry for literally three turns, while his lord wreaked havok along my lines. I basically had 26 rolls over the course of the game where my M...

I heard from my Lizardmen friend that played him yesterday that his General is like crazy powerful, He's on a horse that has 9" movement, his close combat attacks auto-hit w/ S7, and every wound he deals he gets another attack. Also I guess he's a lvl 3 caster? I dunno. He's got some Wraiths, a...
