Re: Questions for active gamers

To keep from cluttering the forum I continue here: Which of the three Elven factions is best at the avoidance game and why? I'm interested in collecting a band of brothers, wandering collection of warriors searching riches to get back into their society after being exiled. I'm thinking of using part...

Re: Questions for active gamers

Indeed D.net is still the fastest site alive! Thank you for the quick and informative replies, much appreciated. Vargheist wings and cold ones do give me certain ideas, I might end up mounting an elven steed instead of a jetbike for the next year's tournament season Ps. Oh my gods that Medusa is bea...

Questions for active gamers

Greetings fellow wargamers! Runes of browsing were cast and rumours of the End Times reached my craftworld. I started playing Druchii some 18 years ago and have since sold all my stuff but never lost the interest. Now that the End Times are here (there?) I have some questions regarding returning to ...

Nice, thanks! The Jar especially is just something I don't even think about most of the time The Bowmen units were naked 10 at the beginning but I needed to come up with the points...

I understand its a lot to ask (green stuffing is dang hard!) but the Manticore's right leg should be GS'd a bit. Both my vocabulary and dictionary failed me but you know, the bottom of his paw? Its flat as it is, while it would IMO look a lot cooler if it was sculpted somewhat. Nice idea, cool pose ...

SSup is Sister Superior? BosL must be the Book of St. Lucius then?

Just one question, what does your Palatine do? Why not the typical jump pack, Blessed Weapon/Eviscerator, pistol, Mantle of Ophelia Canoness?

And I very strongly suspect Hierophant because the rumours of a plastic Trygon (which I'd like to see more the Hierophant btw) were on the Tyranid Hive more then a year and a half ago, but nothing ever happened and I lost hope.
