Karma

It's quite true what they say about Karma. In a game I had against Ogres this weekend, I had Morathi and a lvl 2 sorceress on life. I rolled up and took Dwellers, Purple Sun and Pit of Shades. After two bad magic rolls of 3 and 4, his Slaughter master ate the hellheart rolled high so I had to take a...

Re: 2400pt army list

Hmm, good question about Morathi, I was hoping threatening the ranged units and movement could help but my practice game saw her take a cannonball to the face Turn 1 (they got first turn). We didn't play with much terrain so nothing to hide behind. She rolled up Mindrazor, which could be deadly with...

2400pt army list

For my upcoming tournament I have been playing round with a list, making changes here and there etc... which has started to do my head in a bit. So I scrapped it, and just put a few things in which weren't really like my other list and am tempted to just go with it. I'll list it here and see what yo...

El Flying Assassino

I've got a tournament coming up where I am trying to create a fun but quite competitive list. I haven't used an assassin for a while and have recently bought the Shadowblade model so want to use one, so it got me thinking about novel assassin builds. I thought of the BDE on, but then I thought what ...

Re: Competitive lists without witches.

I've used corsairs before and they were good, including an epic 'trap' I set where they got charged on three side by units with good armour, I then IF Mindrazor on them, it was great. The Sorceress could always sit with the RHB corsairs, they've got a good save so could be a good bunker, and I'm sur...

Thanks for the replies. The Hydra fiery breath would have put me over the 7 score on the swedish score unfortunatley. The sorceress is Lvl 4.

Re: Death Night is coming - How will YOU survive?

Surviving Death Night should be easy for me.

I shall be with my unit, and 20 of us could easily defend ourselves against a ragged throng of Kha...

My idea was that they need souls to live on and it says (I think) that the more pure the...

CoB and hordes

I've scanned the forum and also internet and can not get a firm answer on this. If I had a CoB in a unit of WEs (or any inf), that I wanted a horde, would I then need 7 WEs in each rank to make the horde (so three ranks would attack). I take it then I need 21 WEs for a unit 10 front 3 deep, and woul...

Re: The Hydra Blade - Do we love it or hate it

I think if I took it, I'd only take it for HKB, in which case I'd be wanting to fail the Ld tests. Seeing as you can't hex yourself, it would be too much of a risk running up to a Monster etc... and then passing and during 3 puny attacks at the creature rather than taking the chance to HKB it.

I'm not sure if this thread would be good or not, but last night I had a game, and I thought I'd use the RBT with a single shot. For some reason I'd always thought that a single shot was St.5 Armour Piercing ( I knew the d3 wounds / rank piercing rule), so the few times I took an RBT with the 7th ed...

Re: whats your opinion on The Black Guard

I'll carry on taking some for a while probably. They seems good for tournament lists, as with the right buffing they could do the job against most armies, as opposed to the more 'specialist' troops.
