Watch me write up the Ielthan conspiracy next! You said it so now you can't back out of it. I'll be expecting a story soon. Soon? It took me a fair while to do this, and that's considering this part of history is actually well documented... I started to read the story but I stopped after the first ...

It's a nice idea... but: Warhammer Dragons, while being magical creatures themselves, can't cast spells. D&D dragons can, sure. But not Warhammer ones, these can't even talk. Not all, but the High Elves WotB list suggested that Dragons for characters (not the ones Dragon Princes rode back then)...

Muchos gracias for all the comments I've tried for the first time to write about Malekith this way. The new book was very inspiring and enlightening about his character for me.

U.net's Scrivener's Contest 2008 entry - Lethalis

I was sort of planning on trying to get this in the D.net monthly but seeing as they won't have a new issue before Gav's book comes out (if at all, ever...) I'll just try to see what people outside Ruerl and Voodoo think of it. If it appears cramped, well... it is Prophecy - A Different View ”And lo...

Are you saying that's not toning down, or that that doesn't give his opponents a chance in their magic phases? Besides, if he's asked to tone his list down I don't quite expect people to suddenly build up their lists on all out magic just to counter his. And even then he has enough harpies/dark ride...

I actually have a better idea than toning the list down. Let them play, say, five to ten games with the old Dark Elves book. Then let them get back to their old armies. It will improve the quality of all players instead of downgrading one of them Otherwise... I don't know, maybe remove the Ring of H...

If you think of successful gunlines, you're quickly thinking of Dwarfs and Empire.

They also have strong, long range missile fire and armour punching middle range missile fire from...

Aside from the fact that a BSB adds 6 attacks of his own for roughly 15 points more (10 points less if the CoB Hag is made BSB), that's a tactical debate which has little to do with the rules question :)

Killing blow remains viable against anything that has US1 or 2 and no great ward save. That means that any Dwarf characters without shieldbearers or anti-killing blow rune, all Orcs and Goblins, most Elven characters (bar those with the Pendant ), most Chaos characters bar lord level daemons/mortal ...

You're correct. It may not have been intended that way but just because the lil' bugger stands on top of a shield you can't chop his head off anymore in one fell blow :P

It says they rank up, as opposed to riding as lone chariots. That doesn't mean they get a rank bonus since they are still Fast Cavalry. Even if they would normally rank up like cavalry (like it says in their book, page 25) and got a rank bonus for that (which they don't) they'd still be subject to t...
