Units with CoBs Assaulting Buildings

Not sure if this has been asked and answered already but is a unit with a CoB allowed to assault a building and if so, are there any implications? The Skaven Bell and plague furnace have very clear rules that allow them and their unit to assault buildings, albeit at the cost of d6 x S6 hits. There i...

Re: Does the Gorebeast get to attack?

The main objective is to keep all 3 units in contact and combat if possible when casulties are removed. In this instance, the chariot would be moved forward (and slightly down so that it doesn't hit the warriors) so that it is in contact with the dreadlord. Alternatively, if the chariot could not be...

Re: Stupidity charges

Just one more point to add regarding the HPA/random movers coming in as reinforcements. Random movers move during compulsory movement phase while reinforcements come during the remaining moves phase. That being the case, the random movers only enter the board and stay where they are - they cannot ch...

Re: Cleaning a unit with a DD

The rules for shooting at characters in units are on page 99 under "Shooting" and are precisely as Taijushue indicated initially - all hits are allocated on the unit when more than 5 R+F are present.

Re: One last go with the old book...

If you are doing the one last go with the old book, then I think the BoHG on the CoKs is needed since it will likely be gone. Similarly, the banner of murder for the warriors would go well since we will have to pay nearly twice the price with the new book to get AP attacks. Other than that, looks li...

Re: An idea with wyches

It's a great unit if you can get it into combats where its capabilities and cost are warranted (i.e. against high value targets). In my experience, the unit can be easily distracted by chaff due to frenzy causing overruns or pursuits that pull it far out of position or leave it vulnerable to a flank...

Re: Impact hits

The stank is a supercharged chariot and the impact hits when it charges work exactly as detailed by Van awful, as is the case for any chariot. However, here are a few other items of note that pertain only to the stank due to its unique nature: 1) Grind attack - during subsequent turns when the stank...

Re: 2500 khaine list vs ogres

Shadow is an excellent lore for dark elves and particularly for going against ogres. Every spell except for steed of shadows would be very useful and the lore is optimized for supporting combat. The three hexes are excellent and have long range, the direct damage are great against ogres since they a...

Re: 2500 khaine list vs ogres

Looks like a fun list to fight ogres with. Here are a few observations and recommendations: 1) Gifts of Khaine - as per page 99, a model may not have multiples of the same gift so no double rune of khaine on the COB. However, as Calisson has pointed out, there is no need nor desire to put runes on t...

Re: A really dumb question about dispeling

In addition to not being able to attempt any further dispels that turn, a wizard that fails a dispel attempt cannot cast that turn. Consequently, if you are planning on attempting a RIP dispel during your own magic phase, it might be advisable to save the attempt for the end if you also want to do s...

Re: Banner of Hag Graef

I usually employ the BoHG with my executioner block & a death hag BSB. However, this is an eggs in one basket list so almost the entire army ends up being built around servicing this unit as follows: 1) death hag build is defensive if any gifts are taken at all (5+ ward & -1 attack ). Also p...

Re: Need help against Skaven

One last change is to drop the focus familiar for a scroll. You will definitely want to stop any dreaded 13th that doesn't go off with irresistible force far more than an extra 6" range for a support wizard.

Re: Allies anyone?

Dark elves allying with anyone, even other druchii, does not work well due to the fragility test for both players each turn degrading the alliance to desperate in very short order. Once this occurs, the magic phase will really suffer both offensively and defensively since the pool must be split equa...

There are three tweaks and two major changes to the list that I would recommend as follows: 1) Dreadlord - go with DP vice CO for better mobility, higher toughness, stomp & not having to worry about stupidity. Also, the xhw & shield don't work together. I would recommend the whip of agony or...

Re: Query on disruption

I like the new rule as it makes taking infantry worthwhile and relies a lot more on tactics and manoeuvre to negate ranks while combo charges are needed to negate steadfast. I really don't miss the days of a single bloodthirster/dragonlord being able to roll an entire army up simply by flying in and...

Re: Changed weapon rules

The FAQ gave both RHB & rending stars the quick to fire and multiple-shot special rules. However, the FAQ did not remove the first paragraph for RHB so they still have no range penalties while RS do. That being the case, the initial rules are correct except for adding +1 to hit due to multiple s...

Re: An allegiance: beating WoCs

I would recommend dropping your wizard entirely for three reasons: 1) sharing the power pool between 3 wizards means there really isn't enough for anyone; 2) Vamps need the magic far more than dark elves; and 3) you cannot fit a COB into the list if you have a wizard. Facing a monsters only WoC army...

The spell description indicates that the wizard gains the PD and that these are added to those available to the sorceress (i.e. The sorceress now has two sources of power dice: 1) those from the power of darkness spell and 2) PD in the regular PD pool). Since the PD are not added to the regular pool...
