Special choices disappearing from GW?

http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catal ... GameStyle=

Anyone else notice that Black Guard Command, Witch elves, and Executioners are gone? Is it too much to hope?

Tomb King strong points in building army lists.

I have a friend who picked up tomb kings and he is having considerable trouble tracking down the play pattern and strength of the tomb kings.

In terms of competitive play how do people organize their tomb kings to be effective, I ask merely so I can help with his learning curve.

It seems difficult to muster a balanced list capable of beating a gunline and surviving a brutal assault. with just 20 rxbs thats 40 shots, which seems decent enough to me, to bring more would seem like cheese or just as bad a gunline as others, at least in my opinion. However, I suppose, maybe, for...

Yeah... magic. Statistically I have had some bad mojo with magic and miscasts, so much so that I feel like taking the earthing rod all the time. How do you run your magic gear for the most part? I am familiar with the Sac Dagger, but taking it all the time makes games boring to me, so I try to chang...

I appreciate all the advice here. I agree with all of it I think. In terms of the master, I especially agree, I got tunnel visoned on the prospect of having a MAGIC bsb, so that I could utilize something like the banner of nagarythe to make the unit immovable, however, I ended up just having a regul...

I have a moderate painting ability, its not bad, not fantastic.

I'm looking to go as cool as I can, if I can paint a cool rune, sure, if I need to paint a wicked spider whatever. I am just throwing stuff at a wall and seeing what sticks at this point.

Shield Design for spearmen.

I got this horde of spearmen, see? I got most of them painted up but their shields are still black. I am hoping you, my fellow Druchii, can put aside our plots and murders for just long enough to give me some ideas to put on these shields and the techniques that might be involved. For paint scheme I...

Once I had a sorceress cast Power of Darkness on two dice to get a bit more dice going in my pool as I had rolled slightly low. She proceeded to roll two 6's. I roll the dice, I get 4 power dice. On the miscast I roll Dimensional Cascade and, rolling again, removed my sorceress as a casualty. The st...

Seems like at some point someone will kill someone. Malekith kills Morathi, or visa versa, lest Malekith become a useful tool in the sense that he is really no longer an independent thinker. I was never really a fan of the druchii becoming slaves to chaos, it seemed more appropriate that Elves would...

Our spearmen are pretty cheap, still, for elves anyways. I actually enjoy the spears, though the option for hand weapons should exist. In horde formation spears rockzilla. My hopes for a new codex are to keep the flavor of the three sides of the Druchii, the militant raiding, the interesting sorcery...

I find myself forgoing them entirely in exchange of corsairs being a good throw away unit with magic augments.

Shooting just doesn't last enough turns these days with my play style.

Also, I killed a casket of souls with 5 harpies today, feeling pretty good about that.

I am curious, how did you convert Malekith? I'm at a loss for converting dark elves when I had such an easy time of it with chaos marines. Or am I super lucky in that he wasn't converted at all and you purchased him elsewhere? Also I can't believe your SoM Morathi only won silver, it is truly impres...

Corsairs provide a good base to augment, s3 is less good, killing blow is way better. It could serve well with the amount of attacks dished out with frenzy banner and cauldron. Use metal lore or fire and you got yourself some sort of combo, methinks.

If you're dead set on a corsair horde anyway.

My friend was telling me about his games against the Dark Eldar with his Eldar, and he worries that no matter what he does the dark eldar outnumber him, outgun him and out cut him.

Yeah I don't really play on a pro level though. When its a casual thing I think the armies are more even as I know less about my army and their's so there is less to exploit and maximize on our part.

That's unfortunate but it doesn't make it a bad spell For sure, I love magic, I tend to throw a lot of dice and risk miscast as I'd rather get a niche spell off without the worry of dispel and risked all and lost there.
