the bsb and highborn were the 2 characters making them 5 wide with the bsb holding the banner making them immune to magic.

still if he stays 3 wide with full command he stays in the 2nd rank and can use los from the model in front of him. The worst abuse of this Ive seen is high elves putting a bsb and highborn in a unit of pheonix gaurd giving them the banner making the unit immune to spells and charging them into a un...

they took away most of the unique magic items in all the other new army books I think that runic items will end up taking a big hit. As far as not working in the game, I think dwarfs, if played well are a very good army

I dont want a new dwarf codex I'm very happy with the one they have now. I also think they will lose all the extra dispel dice they get and will see major changes in the runic items rules. Here's to hoping they don't get around to Dwarves for a long time.

Yes I was asking about charges the anvil allows other units to make in the shooting phase. Thanks I also believe that it is correct for the 2d6 plus movement.

dwarf anvil charge

Just a quick question or clarification on possible anvil charges. I play in 2 groups, one plays the anvil move as 6 inches and if it makes contact it is counted as a charge. The 2nd group(and my opinion) is it allows a normal move even a charge so you can roll 2d6 and add your movement treating it a...

A dirty high elf trick is to put a bsb with the banner that makes the unit immune to magic and shoot purple sun out from the caster in the 2nd rank, as a vortex it can even be cast when your in combat.

Im tired of hearing that the unkillable dread lord is cheese. Are your opponents so terrible that they can't figure out ways to kill him. Any worthwhile opponent should be able to deal with him. At most he's an expensive 1 to 2 turn speed bump. If your opponent doesn't rely on cheesy deathstars he's...

the only restriction on getting out of a transport moving flat out that I can find is in there own movement phase so if it's destroyed in my shooting phase I think it's just a pinning test.

Flat out passengers

Am I reading this right? A skimmer that moves flat out gets a 4+ cover save when shot at in the next players turn, if it is immobilised it is destroyed as it is moving to fast to land, but it's passengers get out unharmed. Moving flat out only keeps you from disembarking in that movement phase. Grey...

I started with dwarfs and moved to DE as they play as different as can be.

I looked in the book poison states "natural rolls of 6" killing blow just states rolls a six but I agree it should be played as a natural roll of six and I don't think a case can be made for a 1/3 chance of killing blow, The only argument that could be made was killing blow happens on a 5+...

poisoned attacks say a natural dice roll of six so +1 to wound wouldn't effect it as far as killing blow is concerned a roll of six would therefore become 7 and it states for killing blow a roll of 6 not 6+ but you would still only get killing blow 1/6th of the time any discussion should be to clari...

if your new you dont want to drop the hydra move the hydra up and flame him will cause more wounds on his elites than handbows, the handbows work okay but are much more difficult to use.
