Re: Blades of Nabh

Well executioners can still be Nabh cultists But yeah. Blades of Nabh are truly, truly a joke. I believe I saw someone do some number crunching and came up with this: for almost all purposes, the order of our infantry in terms of cost efficiency goes: Executioners Tower Guard / Gladiators almost tie...

Re: Dark Acolytes

Two things to keep in mind, Vulcan: they are not fast cavalry in the 9th age, they merely have free reform. So no feign flight, no vanguard. In addition, the ranged shooting attack is only S3. However, bolt of darkness is a great spell on them and I think the casting value is justified. It is hard t...

Re: 2400 pts "exec netlist" + thoughts on 9th age (as of .11

A few thoughts on Dread Elves in the 9th age. The good first. 1. Knights have received a major buff with beast masters making stupidity almost a non-factor, point reduction and T4 to boot. Very nice unit indeed, the major problem of which is 'getting the charge'. I have spotted some nice options wit...

2400 pts "exec netlist" + thoughts on 9th age (as of .11)

Guys - Thraundil is back! I pretty much lost all interest in Warhammer this past summer somehow, but with 9th age emerging I am trying to get my mojo back on. First, here is my take on the executioner netlist. It features almost no shooting (since I really find reaper auxiliaries to be utter trash i...

Re: Druchii.net UB Tournament 15 Final Round Draw

I'm afraid Cihan will wipe the floor with me. He's rolling freakish armor saves and I made a bad decision. The game is paused after game turn 3, his dragon is dead but his dreadlord is on foot engaged with my waywatcher unit. He's been taking his break and armor rolls like a complete boss, not much ...

Okay - my anti dark elf list is sent to Amboadine, and I am more than happy to play our final round game as soon as possible, so I can cement my domination! I will accept anything from a 11-9 win in your favour, and all the way to me just steamrolling you ;)

Re: Druchii.net UB Tournament 15 Third Round Draw

Jeeeeez! Cihan is a lot closer to me than I thought he was gonna be.

I have a valid guess concerning my next round opponent! :burns: looks like we shall duke it out for the championship. We're still allowed to modify our lists, right? Is there a submission deadline? :)

Re: 1500 cavalry for optimalisation

Unless you plan to flee a lot, you can skip the musicians and champ on the dark riders (unless they are there to optimise the minimum core req.). You already have a good solve vs gunlines. Word of pain neuters BS shooters, and black horror autokills war machines. Utilise terrain to the max. Wood elv...

Re: Final transmutation and the cauldron

I disagree. I would think you roll separately for the rider and the mount, seeing as how with a normal direct damage spell you would have to allocate hits. So the death hag is hit, and affected on 6, and the cauldron is also hit and affected on a 6.

The black amulet only works for the dreadlord...

Re: Dragon ETC (Updated)

I'd go with build 1 for the dragon lord. You dont want him without a ward save and metal lore on the lvl 4. Unless you want to pick up lore of shadows. When you have 5 locks for the magic missile goodness, dark lore will 'not bring that much to the table'. Also. I'd honestly consider dumping the wit...

Re: Cauldron of Blood and shooting

To elaborate on Amboadines comment: the cauldron, when joining a unit, follows all the rules for a character in a unit. So: cant be singled out by your opponent for BS shooting or magic missiles. Can be selectively targeted by templates, cannons, death magic snipes and the like. Do keep in mind thou...

Re: Victorypoints and Cauldron of Blood unit?

The cauldron follow all the rules for a character. If a whole unit is killed leaving a lvl 4 standing, will the dead unit give up VP to your opponent? The answer is of course yes :)

Well. A horde can work, yes. But its one massively juicy target for your opponent. Will hit like a ton of bricks if your charge goes through, though!
