Re: Where did everyone go?

I've been thinking of getting back into fantasy and digging out my old models again

I guess a really powerful book requires less discussion than a weak one

I would go for the dagger. Up to 5 chances to roll an extra dice per turn is not to be sniffed at. This is very good vs O&G who almost always take that magic banner and the dice stealing thingmy

You should probably avoid the seal as well. Your sorceress is crying out for a basic 4+ ward.

Save yourself some points and just take one farseer with a spirit stone and two powers. I disagree with Rork on the Wraithlord.

Hmm. Good point. Its been so long that Ive forgotten where to start. When i design my army I try and take the tools to beat all comers if possible. Priorities go like this I suppose.

At least we dont have Darkoth Darkshade riding a Darkbeast with his retinue of Dark troopers protected by a Darkfield Generator.

I just laid out a tonne on beautifully shaped grey plastic.

Cant wait for them to arrive. BB team first. Then an army list, then whatever else i need.

Well my rather modest plans for a Dark Elf bloodbowl team may have expanded a little.

These guys may have get me back into playing 40k. I am definitely getting the book and doing an army.

Nothing special about it.

Just use standard superglue and the tiniest chip of polystyrene you can manage.

I have tried it on other things and it works really well just not anything as ridiculous as an executioner sword.

They used to be great for killing those critical support units in 7th. Now those are less critical the reapers are too.

Similarly they posed athreat to large flying targets. There arent as many of them around either.

Kairos is nasty but only has I 1 so a purple ball or a pit of shades will almost always kill him with no saves allowed.
