Sorry to stray off topic, but with all the talk about alternative models, I think maybe we should have a thread or sticky on where to pick up which units as an alternative i.e. Ragining Heroes - Blood Vestals (Witch Elves)? Back on topic, I'm done with GW, until the release of 6th ed. 40k, and thats...

Nice work sir, I too am in the process of re-painting my Druchii, and it is really refreshing seeing someone else doing the same thing. It actually just inspired me to keep pressing on, the repaint of my corsairs has come to a lull, but I will continue because once the whole is done, it truly looks ...

I would say double check this, but I believe it is called Disruption, if the flanking unit has a 2nd complete rank or more, it disrupts the unit it charges negating the steadfast of that unit.

There simply is no cause for GW to be priced so high, other than 'because we can get away with it.' And that attitude over mediocre-quality toy soldiers really irritates me. And me as well. I'm not demanding an explanation from GW, just stating that without one, there is no way to say what GW's mot...

Are you or have you ever been employed by GW? I find no one, on a few different forums, able to justify the extravagant price increase, however the only posters defending GW's increase are people that work or have worked for them. There is no justifiable reason that the prices has been increased at ...

My thoughts are, I'm done buying direct from GW, I will only be looking for Ebay deals, 3rd party vendors etc. I feel bad for those who run GW hobby shops as I feel these price hikes will price the shops out of business, which may well be GW's long term goal and just rely on the 3rd party vendor/ret...

As I mentioned before, the picture on the top with the entire unit is how they were painted about 3 years ago, the picture on the bottom is me repainting them to a higher standard, the face, hair, cloaks, etc. have not been touched yet, just the main armor and boots/gloves. I can't really decide on ...

Getting Back to It - Repainting the Army - Need Advice

So its been about 3 years since I've begun my campaign and adventure in WHFB, and at the beginning my painting skills were not exactly that great, and over time and many models later, my latest additions to the army make my first renditions look not so good. This is my first go... http://i1021.photo...

I'd like to see/read about how you do when you face Bretonians, Ogres, any army with mobility because I feel that an army that will reach you on turn 2 will wipe yours out. Once you lose one or two units, this list starts to drastically lose its edge, which is range and firepower. Your opponents vs ...

It was my understanding the Army book overrides the BRB when it comes to unit specifics, so I guess I'm not seeing why AHW and Frenzy don't work. To me, the FAQ is just stating the base number attacks per the profile. Or am I way off? I've never ever played any match where it was an issue.

Don't get caught up in, "if I win, I will be first" this will lead you to second guessing yourself, my advice is just have fun. And to me, with the volume of shots you'll be putting out, you might as well shoot the knights if they are in range, you'll be forcing a good deal of saves, and h...

What is your list you play with, if what you have listed is your list, you need to drop a character, at 1500, you really should only be running one character, if you must have a 2nd, it should be a BSB, not a 2nd mage.

Viable Assassins

In an effort to get my favorite model / unit / character back in the game in 8th Ed. I'm trying to find a viable assassin set up. I typically run a COB, so I will have access to 5+ wards, KB, +1 attack. I was thinking Rune of Khaine and Dark Venom. 130pt assassin - fairly cheap, and with COB support...

I take it you bless your COB with killing blow when it gets in combat? Otherwise KB is not a standard rule for the unit/model.

I give my champion the potion of foolhardyness, one time use but on the one use you get furious charge, which means another attack. Add that in with the COB and Hydra banner and ouch. You can mash up 30 model units in horde formation pretty easily in the first round of combat.

I love the models and how they are turning out, very excellent work, my issue is I can't decide if I'd rather see these models as 40k or fantasy but they are amazing, they remind me of a steam punk theme almost.

If you are looking for most cost effective, harpies are definitely the way to go. The common setups for each unit are 5 harpies, 55pts; 5 shades, AHW; 85pts; 5 dark riders, muso, xbows, 117pts. They all fill similar roles or warmachine hunting, mage killing, and to an extent re-directing, however I ...

You can argue against it all you want, but your still wrong. The movement phase is not the whole of the argument. The argument is ANY MOVEMENT. The FAQ's support this clearly, you move to accept a challenge the unit counts as moving. You can not argue against something that is that plain to see. Co...
