Re: 8th Ed: 1500 vs Bretonnia

Thanks guys! I broke the Darkshards into two sets and switched some banners around but mostly ran the list above. The game went really well, a definite victory for the Druchii! It was great to roll some dice again and I had a lot of fun. We roll random terrain and get 10 pieces so the battlefield wa...

8th Ed: 1500 vs Bretonnia

Hi Druchii.net, long time no see. About to dust off the old models for my first game in quite a long time, a 1500 point skirmish against my old Bretonnian foe. Here's what I'm planning: Lords Supreme Sorceress, Lvl 4, Lore of Metal, Dispel Scroll Heroes Master, BSB, Cold One, Great Weapon, Heavy Arm...

Re: 2018 PAINTING CHALLENGE

I admit I fell far short of where I wanted last year, my first year painting. I beat one of my friends' orcs and goblins so badly he hasn't wanted to play another game in 3 months! As such my inspiration to work on my army has lessened. This month I resolve to pick up a paintbrush again and get some...

Re: War Box Battle Reports

Great to see new content, but for my personal absorption, an hour and a half long video is a bit much. I like the more chopped-up narrative "highlights" style of some other videos, SkaveninAZ comes to mind.

Re: 8th Edition 1000 point list vs. High Elves

Makes sense! Thank you! As an aside: why would one choose to deploy Bleakswords over Dreadspears? They cost the same and I have yet to find any benefit of having a sword over a spear? Am I totally missing the point? 6+ ward save as Red mentioned. Personally I never take either; I built my infantry ...

Re: Long live WFB!

Bretonnia's one and only advantage is in the charge, especially the combo-charge. Deny them the charge and you should win easily. Given DE's advantage in maneuver plus DE's generally cheaper AND better troops, Bretonnia should only challenge DE if there's a significant skill imbalance between the p...

Re: 8th Edition 1000 point list vs. High Elves

I'll echo Dark Riders, with their 4+ save they will likely get to a block of archers without getting pincushioned and can easily get into a flank, or make the archers reform to chase them while you advance with the bulk of your army. I worry about the lack of a BSB in your army; rerolling leadership...

Re: Long live WFB!

Unless you're playing 6E rules you could take anything you like in the DE book and cause major pain for the stuck-in-time Bretonnians. Unfortunately, I have not found this to be the case, mostly due to a lack of high STR models in my army. I once ran a bus of Witch Elves into a bus of Knights, did ...

I'm afraid I've fallen off a bit, other hobbies/life stuff taking precedence from WFB, but I always think about picking up the paintbrush again, and my lovely girlfriend got me a Malekith on Black Dragon model for an anniversary present! I want to field it against Brettonia and let the knights feel ...

Re: Thoughts on my 1600p tourny list?

I'd be wary of having almost 1/3rd of your points tied up in one model, there are so many ways to kill a Lord, even one as powerful as Malekith, and then your army loses a ton of oomph. Generally I favor having more dudes instead of more powerful dudes, but that's maybe a personal preference. If I w...

Re: Duckman Learns 8th Edition: Battle Reports

2 questions: 1) Is your Sorc really on a Cold One? I'm thinking that makes her a bigger artillery target plus forcing stupidity rolls? Or is this a typo? Yes, I fielded her with the Corsairs but didn't think about the artillery target problem. I was hoping for an armor save VS his 3 Strength goblin...

Duckman Learns 8th Edition: Battle Reports

Seeing as I keep typing out notes after games usually in army list threads, I figured I would move reports to their own thread and perhaps begin to write more robust reports as time goes by. First up is my most recent game against Orks and Goblins. Lists Dark Elves Lords Supreme Sorceress Level 4, L...

I'm interested in knowing optimal set-ups regardless of models owned to continue expanding my collection! I'm still very new to Warhammer so that kind of input is very helpful to further my overall understanding of the game. The game went great, a total massacre! I wiped the board on turn five while...

Thanks for the advice! I am still working on collecting a nice block of high STR infantry, only have 10 executioners so far which I feel would be too easy to splat with one Doom Diver to be a good choice. I feel similarly about the 5-6 Cold One Knights I have. The RBTs were to be my answer to anythi...

8th Edition: 2000 vs Orks and Goblins

Hi all, my next game will be this coming Monday against Orks and Goblins. This player likes to use Fanatics, Squigs, Doomdivers, and tons of Night Goblins supplemented by Black Orks. I also expect him to deploy some Wolf Riders that he recently acquired. So far my list looks like this: Lords Supreme...

Been playing a lot of 8th as my collection grows, and getting some old players back in to it.
