Re: Tactics vs the new Warriors of Chaos

Meanwhile, I'm eagerly anticipating the High Elf release to see what tools they get which can be used against it, as this can prempt our own book. Specifically, I'm going to be very interested to see what they do with Repeater Bolt Throwers. There is a rumour they are getting a warmachine that func...

Re: Gamezone turn to resin

Why is it that when other companies - i.e. Gamezone - switch to resin the product gets cheaper, but when GW do it - i.e. failcast - it gets more expensive? :roll:

Re: GW Store Staff

Unusual experience today. Was waiting for a train and thought I'd have a browse in the local store and ask the staff about the impending High Elves release. Staff looked honestly surprised to hear about any new High Elves on the way. They started asking me what I new about it! Don't know if it was a...

Re: Deployment and Terrain use examples

@ Paricidas I think that the point of the thread is to demonstrate some basic deployment principles, early phase movement and tricks such as re-directing and advantageous use of terrain. It is written with a brand new player in mind. It is also part of a series that is not finished. When I read thro...

Re: Good MSU links

To be honest I think that MSU with DE will suffer a lot from the inability to flee charges with our main fighting blocks. Everything that is ItP, Stupid, or Frenzied cannot flee a charge, and I my mind the success of MSU is all about baiting and fleeing to force your opponents into a trap, where yo...

Re: Good MSU links

Hi iamghost, I think if anything the opposite is true - inexperienced players go larger, highly experienced players go smaller. *But that's not quite true as even experienced players tend to go large these days because of the ruleset of 8th edition with horde formation and steadfast favouring larger...

Re: Dreadlord on peg with Black amulet

Black Amulet was my favourite magic item back in the day (4th edition). Same rules as now but 50 points. It was part of a "Bloodthirster-killing" package! I haven't used it in 8th cos of the 70 points cost, so can't give you any direct feedback on it. Off the top of my head I can't remembe...

Re: 2nd Match of this year. Again vs High Elves 2000 pts

Looks like a strong list.

Not much to add. I would think about squeezing in Hag Graef on the Black Guard to counter ASF and rerolls, and perhaps put Murder on the spears.

Have fun, and give us a battle report ;)

@ Amarok - the Dragon on the arm is from the champion of the "battle cow" version of Cold One Knights. @ Cult of Khaine - how much difficulty did you have getting the Dragon's wing to separate from the helmet of the Cold One Knight? also, where is the little Dragon on the top of the banner...

Re: 2000pts list for tourney play no comp

Sorry to hear about your Dark Elves failing their toughness test, happy to hear you are OK I think the list looks good, though Burizan's suggestion of combining the warriors into one block is interesting. Better steadfast denial...but takes away from your MSU approach Have fun at the tourney, and le...

Re: Which Armies do the DE's do worst against?

Gun lines, eh? They were all over the place here in Atlanta about five years ago, then they faded away. I've found that the key unit is harpies, and the dwarves key weakness is that they are move-or-fire. Or has that changed in 8th? Because if they are still move or fire, try to get your harpies to...
