So I decided to turn this thread into a POLG. In about 3-5 days I will be getting an another unite of darkshards and a bolt thrower. I will post those when they are done. Also maybe fingers crossed in a week or 2 I might be able to order 2 units of witch elves. And by then I should have the hair mor...

Re: Base size question

Thanks for the answers. I talked to my gaming group about it and they said no,because they did not want to fight the base rules.

Base size question

So one of my many conversion ideas is to convert a dread lord onto a lizard men carnosaur. And that would be he's cold one mount. But the carnosaur's base is much bigger than a normal cold one's base. My question is it ok to make a models base different.

Re: The first step

Thanks for all the support. Dyvim tvar I agree it does look a bit odd with the blonde hair. I will keep the hair as it is for now, i like the pop it adds to the model but if i find an idea for the hair i like i will use that.

Re: what is the "dark elf way" of tactics?

Depends on the scenario and your opponent. Too general of a question to have one answer. If you gave us some more specific hypothetical situations it would be easier. Standard deployment and victory condition-victory points.Table has a few hills and a couple of forest on the table.Opponent has a ho...

Re: Conversion?

So after looking at other people's conversion I think I will give it a go. My first try will be Dreadlord on a dark pegasus. My idea is to get a Eltharion on Stormwing and get some Black Ark Corsairs. Take the body form the Corsairs and use that and keep the legs already on the original model and th...

Getting Started

Sorry if these questions have already been answered a million times but I am still gonna ask it anyway.So is the Dark Elf Warhost of Naggaroth worth picking up? Then what are the best units to pick up first and to build a sold list at around 750-1000 pts.

Conversion?

So I am sorry if this has been asked. But as a new Dark elves player I noticed that you have to convert a lot of our lords and Heroes. As a person who is in school and does not have a lot of time on their hands making conversions takes a lot of time to do. So I was wondering is using some of the Hig...
