We lack a war machine comparable to other armies' machines (Asur have the same problem though) TBH, I never understood why the Druchii/Asur never got another war machine, or at least the option to enchant BT shots in some manner. Maybe a war mage upgrade to the crew (similar to Dwarf engineer) who ...

But its a Special Slot so sometimes they don't make my lists, but I really love chariots :[ I love the models, but I don't think they are worth the special slot most times since they dropped the 2-for-1 rule. Stupidity is IMO just too debilitating when it fails and having an entirely offensive spec...

The question was submitted so it being dropped tells me they thought it self-explanatory. I would go with the most reasonable interpretation of it applying only to herself. Realistically, any other interpretation seems like wishful thinking to me.

Dunno if anyone's looking for additional confirmation, but it's been slow for me for the past couple weeks. And by slow I mean unbearably so, sometimes over a minute for a single page to load.

I just have a question which ties in with the FAQ on hatred and the HE Standard of Balance. Am I correct in my interpretation that the standard removes the DE hatred, but that our Black Guard still continue the to hit re-rolls, as this is a unit special rule (Warrior Elite) and not due to hatred.

Actually, someone pointed this out to me. Apparently if you read the books it's not a sea dragon cloak at all. Malus was never a corsair. It's the hide of Spite's clutchmate.

I wonder if the ring of hotek rulings are GW's way of appeasing the power creep issue. It is easily the strongest anitmagic item in the game and by doing this, they severely neuter its ability. It would not be the first time GW has used a sledgehammer in response to a single issue. IYAM the concept...

Just like with Black Horror where you don't have to say beforehand where you're going to place the template. FYI, most long-term tournament players I've spoken to disagree with that interpretation. All spells require selecting a target as part of their basic rules and when it comes to template spel...

The blade wind ruling makes no sense... In this way, we have a magic missile weaker than other lists with the same cost (8+, 2d6 s4) Not really. You have 2d6 chances to hit at S4 *and* you are allowed to allocate a small portion of them to models you might want to kill such as champions/characters....

Definitely the Battalion. The spearheads just aren't worth it and you can find everything in them separately and usually for a better price.

The answer lists an explanation why it does work that way. And that explanation cannot be specific to that single spell as it is far too generic. I dosagree.

Characters charging out of a unit, an Assassin using his cloak for example, does not get shot but instead the unit he charged out of does. And then if they panic then he is somehow sucked back into the unit and they run in the opposite direction. I think they screwed that part up but at least we ha...

And thus going clearly against the BRB rule, if you say it is not possible to affect units in combat, even though it only says "cast at" not "affect". In this case I would read the answer as specific only to that particular spell. Any other interpretation does nothing but confus...

I don't see it that way at all. Nothing has changed. The Blinding Light spell still "affects" all models in its radius of effect and says nothing about whether MR would apply or not. The only thing that particular answer did was say that Blinding Light applies to units in combat, including...

So, we can cast Black Horror into close combat now, and MR does not affect it anymore? Wow! :eek: No. Black Horror no longer has the wording from 6th stating that the template is placed after rolling the dice. Because of that it falls back into the normal casting order of: 1. choose spell 2. nomina...

Unless it's just for repackaging, it appears Cold One Chariots are no longer available at present. I personally hope it's because they are being redone in plastic (the metal model is awesome), but I have no info on whether that's why.

I doubt they'd do something as blase as shields in plastic unless they were to accompany a new warrior box set. Too expensive for just a few bitz that most folks probably won't even see.

Given that I've spent more on certain bitz for conversions before, I will probably pick up two batches of the kraken ones for a single unit of 20 speareleves. $20 isn't too bad I guess, though they are *way* overpriced for what you're getting. They should be no more than $.25 - $.50 each IMO. Oh wel...

Actually you do not strike in initiative order. If you have ASF and are armed with a great weapon, facing another unit with ASF, they cancel each other out.
