But it would be possible? There would be an offspring from a human and elf mating...? If it is possible, it must happen on occasions. In the case of dark elves: If they take their liberties on the women when raiding, it would occasionally happen that the dark elves afterwards are hunted down by huma...

Halfelves?

Is it common for the elf races, namely dark elves, to "mate" with humans - thus creating half-breeds...? For dark elves, I am thinking that they could take themselves some pleasure in raping beautiful human women on their raids, or prehaps when they bring them back as slaves. Or is this be...

Hey Iff! Good list! Here are a few comments and advices: - Your gw master build is fine. I would always put him with the corsairs, because he also benifits from their Sea Serpent Standard. 4 S6 attacks is not bad. - At 1000 points you are getting an average of 7 power dice each turn for free.

Seriously the best battle reports on youtube! It is a Bretonnia player, but he goes up against dark elves fairly frequently. Much to learn from!

I would go for a Chuck Norris build or perhaps a stubborn dreadlord on pegasus!

Charge means:

+1 CR for charging
+1 CR for BSB
+1-2 CR for kills

The black coach then does no wounds (or maybe a single) back and crumbles to dust. Sounds like easy money to me!

VC troops do not have good initiative or combat ability. 30 SSS corsairs would be great. 30 witch elves with BoM would be even greater. If the witch elves go in and kill 20 skelettons and the skelettons can only kill 4 witch elves back, it would really take SOME vampire to even the odds in that comb...

The general rule is p.10: where a model (or a unit) has more than one value for a characteristic, take the highest. Exactly! What seems to be the problem here? The handlers are ignored for "most gaming purposes", namely that only the hydras base size counts. That is the only "gaming ...

"We ignore them for most gaming purpose, treating the monster itself as the extend of the unit". This is a very vague desciption, but all we can know for sure is that the handlers do not count towards the hydras base size or any measuring. Actually this is very similar to warmachines. Unde...

I think that the level 1 sorceress will be worth it! First of all, I know that he is going to have dwellers below, and I also know that he will be going for it every turn. With units size 30+ that spell is far more lethal to me than any shooting. I will be happy if the only thing my sorceress accomp...

Does dwellers below allow ward saves?

Do spells with no saves of any kind allow ward saves?

Discipline could be a good idea, swiftness I don't think, Mvt 5 is enough. Flaming banner is also a great idea. Banner of dicipline may be a waste becau...

To be honest, I love the list. But there are always configurations to do: - corsair champion is not worth 10 points. Get rid of him. - I dont think the witch elf champion is worth 35 points either. - What is that warbanner doing with the executioners?? They beat up everything, and should they fail t...

Can they deal with them on their own? 17 SSS Corsairs against 28 orcs? Sure can. Generelly in the first round the corsairs will kill 7 and the orcs 4. In every round after that until the corsairs get down below 7, the orcs are going to lose 4 per turn and the corsairs 2 per turn. (which also means ...

Also, as Dalamar says, one on one isn't everything. In the first round of combat, you lose 40 points of corsairs, compared to 33 of rxbs or 28 of spears. And that first round is all that it takes for your flanker of choice (dark riders, chariot, hydra, 5 witch elves) to break the orcs in the second...

And in the meantime the orcs were so focused on reaching the crossbowmen that they didn't notice the hydra slamming into their flank. Sorry but 1 on 1 matchups just don't work in warhammer. I never suggested they would. I am just trying to show that corsairs are more efficient fighters for their po...

Try comparing units of the same size. 25 spears with the banner of disciple or 18 RXB with a muso are going to be as effective as your precious corsairs. I stopped running them because they are a waste of points for what they do. Spears add bulk and ranks, while RXB add shooting. Corsairs aren't as...

Thanks for all the advices. Ill try a few of them! Well corsairs do nothing that spears or RXB can't do so its obviously your fault that they are failing Twisted Evil Spears have the same number of attacks, the same save in melee and are free to take a banner as their attacks come from their numbers...

Be careful with a horde of 35-40 gors including a BSB with the beast banner. Those will dish out 40 S4 attacks per round with rerolls to hit! One suggestion though: Remove the RxBs, and put your supreme sorceress on a dark pegasus. Give her PoK, Dragon Egg and power scroll using death magic. Use the...
