Crone hellebron

the crone has a niffy rule, that she can accompany a CoB. since she cannot buy one herself, that should mean (and did so in 7th) that she could join another DH with a CoB. Now, i like crone hellebron a lot, for the WE as core rule, but with the step up rule, i doubt i want to see her in a real comba...

well, i like the cob BSB to fly with steed of shadows indeed. a warmachine is 1 model (crew is woundmarkers only) and a deathhag is a char, so its a fine target for steed of shadows (does not need to be an infantry anymore, just a character model). I also like to fly it smack in the middle to hold s...

VC has been nerfed a little due to 2 things they only have ghouls as usefull, counting core choices (and then 25% is a lot) single dice spell spamming is not really smart, since a 1 or 2 is a fail anytime, and each time ye fail that wizzy cannot cast that phase. but the coach took a big step up inde...

Metal default spell power is not so much in the ignoring AS saves part, but in making toughness irrelevant at all, the easiest way to kill T5/ T6 medium armoured monsters there is (dragon, hydra, stegadon, chariots), and the golden hounds make a good job on singling out the chars in there as well, w...

no upgrades on them, just use 6 naked witches instead. and dont necessary deploy them 6 wide as well, they do not lose out much on 3x2 (ok, 6 Attacks) but will not be a handicap in deployment or manouvring then. just deploy them as you have the space for them (3x2, 4/2, 5/1. 6/0, whatever. see them ...

more wizzards = less risk on losing the fase on a missed spell. especially for VC this is still important, 1 dice spamming is fine with lots of wizzards, and not something ye do with just one or 2 of them. more wizzards = more arcane items that add PD as well. That said, i think its not the number o...

well,

ye dont have the 25% core required, harpies and assassins dont count towards that, so its really back to the drawingboard i am afraid (finding almost 200 pts for the needed core troops will upset the list quite a bit).

survivabily in a BSB does not matter at all, he just should not lose

so maxxed out AS and stubborn (preffered from either a CoB or BG instead of a expensive item) is all that counts.

your wonderfull BSB can shrug off all wounds he wants, if he flees he is dead thou

Flanking is not dead at all, however, the flankers are different to get flanks you use either characters (US is of no importance to get flank bonus to CR, and stepping up only works to the front) or small frontage units so they can get there, either CoC or my preffered 3x2 deployed WE/ BG (trading s...

could work, in the (in my eyes limited) situation that those harpies cannot be charged by something else instead.

I.E, this can only work if the opponent is moving badly.

Callison,

even with steed of shadows, a char may not join a unit and leave a unit in the same turn.

that said, if she uses the smoke and mirrors trick to swap, it can work.

While it does not matter if you can charge or not on a 1 on 1 unit combat, it is still VERY important if you want to combine 3 units to gangbang on one, especially if one of those units is a chariot or cavalry, or if the opponent has units like that near/ the ones that charge. The + 1 CR is moot, bu...

not enough units for my taste, at 2500 pts, i want to have at least 10, but prefer 12 and up deploymentslots, many opponents can just wait and see what you place where to give them a favorable match up
