I use a dragon lord with my DE nowadays all the time. Though he cannot single handedly break ranked units on the charge, he can kill very many models. I try to get combo charges on big expensive units with the dragon, hydra, cold one chariot noble (with black dragon egg), cold ones and black guard. ...

While it is true that an army that is competive in each phase is certainly a good one I don't think it is necessary to be able to compete of the dominion of each game phase. What is necessary is that you must be able to counter your opponents moves in each phase. I agree that magic can be much more ...

You might want to give your shades AHW. I' not sure what good the pendant will do for your general, unless it is to protect from miscasts or you expect her to end in CC, where she should not be. I would also split the x-bows. A smaller target is better when you face grude throwers. FC seems kind of ...

Actually the shades would be hitting the WM crew on 3+ since they have WS 5 if I remember correctly. That and the extra attack would make quite a difference. And if you would go for great weapons they would also kill some of the crew. I think I would find it difficult to get into a good position wit...

Forgot to mention about the lore of shadow. I do not mind the high casting cost. I have only one mage, and usually there will be around 7 dice, which will allow me to cast any single spell that I want to cast. I could even cast two. And I don't think that shadow is situational. Miasma is one of the ...

I am going to keep the master in the chariot. He adds way more than two chariots IMO, since he can deal 25 wounds in one round of close combat. I don't think that I would benefit much from the caludron. This army is supposed to be fast and compact, and that is why there are almost no units that will...

From 2400p to 2500p

Around six months ago I played at a tournament with the following list and ended up third best. For me that is a very good achievment. Now I would want to add 100 points more and maybe even change something, but I am having a some troubles. Here is the list: Raiders of Eglerath the Souleater Lords: ...

6 Coks with champion and potion of foolhardiness. Against big bases you get 8 attacks at str6, which is more than enough to take down bsbs and lvl 4s. Even a vampire count would be in trouble if he is not combat equipped. Though you will get only 6 attacks at him. The nice thing about such a unit is...

IMO the wip of agony is not good enough because it is only str 5. Sure you have the same armour save modifier, but most of the stuff you will be fighting will have at least T4, so you will be wounding on 3's.

I just used a dragon in a tourney and finished third over all. The dragon lord preformed really well, never dying and always being the terror of my opponents. There was not a single time I wished I had gone with a level 4. A level 2 with staff of sorcery gives you almost the same amount of magic def...

If your army is quite static you probably should take a caludron. If on the other hand you want to be able to move your whole army to another part of the table in a few turns, the caludron is the last thing you should take. The pot is too slow, and you don't want to leave any unit behind your main f...

Well if the unit costs around 800pts you can still win without destroying it. Just kill everything else and avoid being killed. One nice trick would be to place someone with the Ring near the building, effectively stopping Mandfred from casting.

Thanks for the fast reply. I am tempted to take a dispel scroll over the staff, but I'm not sure if the 1+ to dispel is better than an auto dispel. On the other hand most people will throw enough dice to cause irresistable force on the on big spell I would want to use the scroll on.. Good point abou...

2400 points of nasty stuff for a tourney

So I am attending a tournament next weekend and though I have many armies to choose from I chose the Druchii. Well mainly because I don't have to carry lots of models with me, and because I just finished my dragon lord conversion. So I want to field the dragon and give him some quick hammer units fo...

Well if you want to take a missile duel between RxBs and empire crossbows, the RxBs are going to win. On the other hand there are much better targets for RxBs than crossbows, who can easily be dealt by any unit with some punch and a good movement value. RxBs are great against the popular halberdier ...

I think a master with black dragon egg can be quite effective and worth his points. Cannons are a problem, but only two armies bring those. Stone throwers and such have a lot smaller chance to hit the chariot. It also depends what you want the chariot to accomplish. They are not very fast since they...

I don't think magic will be as big issue as warmachines are, but then again all single models suffer from warmachines. Most of the spells (and the best ones) in 8th are better against big units, but warmachines are a problem. Regular missle fire can be dealt with a screening unit. Edit. (The army wh...

Master on a chariot + black dragon egg

I know that chariots are not that popular in 8th, but I figured that a master with black dragon egg on a cold one chariot would pack quite a punch. For 200p plus some mudane equipment (armour and lance) you'll get 3 attacks at str 6, 1 str 5 attack, d6 + 1 str 5 impact hits, 2d6 str 4 breath attack ...

If you charge DR into the flank you can deny up to 3 points of rank bonus, and you get 2 + CR from charging and flanking. That is potential 5+ swing in your favour + any kills that you might make, minus those that your opponent makes. Against regular chaos warriors that is something that I would gla...

It shouldn't take 3 turns of getting into combat with the warmachines. Yes the spearmen will be slower, but then again those are not the units you should kill the warmachines with. If you want to field a list that is designed to deal with a gunline, then you should take as much as possible small uni...

Empire have one of the strongest anti magic builds, and what you are faicng isn't even that bad. Actually dispel scrolls are quite useless, rod of power for instance is much much better.

You should have 24 inches between the armies and 10-12 inches deep deployment zones. Sounds like you are fighting on a deeper board, which gives artillerity the edge.
