Re: Competitive list at 2000 points for 6th pure

400 points on RBTs seems excessive. I would drop 2 of them and spend the money getting a couple of units of Crossbowmen.

Re: Another old bloke back

Welcome back.

My oldest daughter turned 8 recently and we've started playing Pokemon together. Hopefully she'll be old enough for warhammer in the next year or two as well.

BTW, this site is basically dead, lol.

Re: The Oldworld: What we want and what we don'

8th ed was the zenith for me. You had a pretty perfect balance: - Big infantry hordes beat small elite units - Magic casters beat big infantry hordes - Small elite units beat magic casters Rules like steadfast and stepping up made armies feel more realistic. 7th ed was fun, but ultimately came down ...

Re: Is it time to close Druchii.net?

On the one hand, it's pretty clear that D.Net as a thriving active community hub is basically dead. It's been dead for a long time, sadly. On the other hand, it does possess significant archival reference value. It would be a shame to lose that. Imagine if it was deleted tomorrow and then you wanted...

Re: Triune of Elves! Wood vs High vs Dark! 1k, 1,5k 2,5k ideas?

Now that’s what I call a lengthy battle report.

Sounds like a tough game; always frustrating to forget rules but it happens. Good luck with the next bout.

Re: Treasure Horde Board Game

It looks fun, but a few comments (if I may): - It looks very much like Heroquest. I assume that is what you were going for, but I guess it made me wonder what made your game worthy of purchase rather than just getting that game instead? You could potentially make that clearer up front - what does th...

Re: Dark elves mounted and monster - 2K

From a fun-level point of view, unless your opponent is running an equally cheesy list, your list is going to be pretty miserable to go up against. 3 Hydras is too many. Even in the new book, they remain very strong and at 2k you are really being cheeky by having so many. Go with at most 2. This lev...

Re: [PLOG] Restoring my Old World Dark Elves

I love the older models. My army has 60 old school dark elf warriors as Bleakswords. It helps that they dirt cheap on ebay (at least they were back when I was collecting, I've not had to look for a long time now). A trick to rank them up is to put half of them at the front of the base and half of th...

Re: Where to put the sorceress

The various talismans are possibilities, but they also put the price up, so you protect her better but the risk you run on her becomes higher. If pressed, I would take the Talisman of Endurance (5+ ward save for 30 points), but mostly I just ran her naked if she is in a horde anvil unit and make sur...

Re: Where to put the sorceress

One other option, while I think of it, is to put your level 4 in a unit of warriors that already has five characters: e.g. a unit with a full command, a battle-standard bearer or general, and a level 1 sorceress with a scroll. That bumps the level 4 back into the second row (assuming you run the uni...

Re: Where to put the sorceress

I usually ran one level 4 in a bunker of warriors (spears or swords) with an offensive magic item of some kind. Then I had a level 1 with a dispel scroll in with my RxBs. That way, the level 4 had the bulk of the warriors to keep her safe, but was also able to get into a part of the battlefield wher...

Re: How to beat Lizardmen Army and Fiery Convocation

In both games, you had a huge amount of points bound up in a big infantry block. 20 Blackguard means that you have a minimum of 300 points in a single unit (and I'm guessing that you also had a full command on it, maybe with a banner, and maybe with a character or two - netting you at more like 400 ...

8th edition was always a game of Scissors, Paper, Stone: - Small units get beaten by big units - Big units get beaten by magic users - Magic gets beaten by small units Your first mistake was taking a block of 40 spearmen in a 1000 point game - that's a huge chunk of points, especially as I assume yo...

Re: Original metal manticore (6th edition army book) base si

That is correct. The last manicure was on 50mm by 100mm IIRC. GW went that way towards the end, it was part of their make monsters and everything bigger so that they looked more powerful and they could charge more for their purchase.
