I have to agree with martian, dwarfs are different from us in almost every aspect of the game and in the fluff. All elves are quick, while dwarfs are easily the slowest army in the game. All elves are fragile, while dwarfs have high toughness and armor. Dwarfs are unrealistically honorable, while da...

I would use Lore of Fire on lower level wizards, and here's why: The spells, as has already been pointed out, have low casting values. The signture spell has three different casting levels, starting at 5+ making it useful for any level wizard. The fluff seems to support fire as the lore for magic no...

Apart from that, do you limit a slaans casting ability by engaging the temple guard? Not at all. Slann can still cast magic missiles as long as they are not in base-to-base contact, which doesn't happen until the TG are reduced to one rank. I was browsing the art of war here on the forum and i saw ...

it's pretty good, since Lizardmen don't have good ward save items (they have like what, 2 of them? And 1 of them is the Talisman of Protection). Lizardmen can take the ToP, a 5+ ward save, or a one use only 2+ ward save. But it is quite good as saurus heroes get great armor saves (4+ scaly skin, Li...

Tyrion has a 0+ Armor save, a 4+ ward save, and regeneration. The rulebook states that his mount increases Tyrion's unit strength to two, which may or may not give Tyrion a total US of 3 for being mounted, depended on how this rule is interpreted. Tyrion's armor makes him immune to flame and all bre...

I've never been in a tournament before, mostly i play a few of the same opponents (WoC, Dwarfs, WE, DoC once)
So how many pieces of terrain do people use on average for a 2000 pt game?

why not start them off on their own? Assassins have the scout special rule, so why not start them off on their own and get a Caludron of Blood up there to make them stubbon w/ Leadership 10? or am i misinterpreting something?

I'm a bit OCD when it comes to my army. I always prefer an army that makes sense together.

I've been wondering about an DE army composed entirely of Assassins. How novel is my idea? has anybody else tried (or even considered) it before? A cauldron of Blood would make them stubborn, and just add some RXB for minimum core and a supreme sorc for magic? Thoughts pl0x

I think the game would have a more strategic element if pikes were added to stop cavalry charges. give them 3 ranks to fight in, +1 strength when charged in the first two ranks, wtvr. And as for mitigating the importance of charging, what about introducting a counter-charge rule? Soldiers don't alwa...

I don't really see any good combat units in this except the three monsters. A lot of defensive magic items for you characters are limiting thier close combat potential. None of your units give any significant SCR either. My advice would be to give your characters magic weapons. Ditch the ward save f...

Against goblins and TK you would benefit more from the 7x3 setup because of their light armor, low toughness and horde-ish numbers. Most people take the 5x4 setup, i beleive, because str 3 attacks really aren't that great, even that many of them. the SCR is usually more reliable against WoC, Orcs, D...
