Re: Old rules redux: Mengil Manhides Manflayers

Hahaha TD! This also made me chuckle: Note that the company consists of both Elven males and females, Dark Elf women being easily as mean and aggressive as their menfolk. As if some dudes girlfriends in the 80s weren't like that already?! I also enjoyed: Mengil is a Mighty Dark Elf Hero. HELL YEAH H...

Re: Putting the M in 'Monster List'

Indeed! I like lots of these suggestions, if you want a fluffy but challenging list I'd run what you have already, but to twerk it into something even more stream lined then the addition of Warlocks and/or swapping one Beastmaster for a Level 4 on Peg would be VERY advantageous. As Underway says, Li...

Re: Rumours about GW in 2014 - not good ones

I'll be very interested to see how GW recover from this over the next 5 years. I believe that is their realistic deadline to turn things around. And they can. If they're smart. Seperating themselves so coldly from their fanbase was their biggest and worst move. Gamers, once they reach the age of 17+...

Re: Black Guard - putting the E in Warrior Elite

Give them armour penetration as standard and be done with it... Nah I like your fluff based rules although they need streamlining a bit. I think that they should be unbreakable instead of stubborn. That'd do the trick. Shield are a nice addition (loads of other halberd wielding elites have the same ...

Re: Your Experiences from using Dark Magic?

Word of pain also has great synergy with soul stealer (when it hits properly!).

I agree with Dal's thoughts on countering WoC with it too, though sadly I *still* haven't had a game with the new book! *curses his slave drive job in the quarries of Hag Graef...*

Re: Looking for advice on deployment

Could do with knowing which units you intend for your characters to be in (Death hag is fairly obvious!). Your BSB looks like he is internded to be on a mount, is this correct? He also has no weapon - is this correct too? What lore does your wizard intend on using? What tournament format is it? I ca...

Lovely, really like these rules - this unit made a fine addition thanks to the poioned shots and BS5 (again the initial concept behind the modern shades) in my army, in fact they really were the first time I ever heard someone proclaim that Dark Elves are overpowered! They used to sit in a Forest pi...

Re: Assassin Builds - 8th ed army book.

I really like all of those Underway!

I particularly like the sword of might version - he'd do very nicely against enemy spir...

Brilliant report! Blimey you really pushed back hard in this game didn't you?! The ethereal units were a pain as you quickly stated at the start and I think you're right, your undead opponent seemed fairly jammy in the magic phase but perhaps lacked a few decent rolls in the other phases: notably co...

Death Night in the Malice Tower. The howl of anguish snapped Delekth from his vacant stare into The Wastes. As well as the sounds of murder within his own watch tower he could make out the eerie drone of at least two other alarm horns sounding out in the distance. He did not feel at ease; his watch...

I shall certainly continue to use harpies.

I'm not sure that I quite understand your scenario 'ideas' for the tournament (which are VERY important if you want to write a successful list, no matter what style / theme it uses).

Re: Assassins in Scouting Units

I'd like to raise the topic of how viable Assassins are compared to Masters! In all seriousness, the way I perceive this is that the assassin in not placed upon the table during Deployment, thus it does not matter if he has the scout rule or not. He is simply revealed in one of your infantry units a...

Re: Morathi?

Actually, by pumping down a model's S or T by Withering / Enfeebling / Soulblight / Word of Pain, would Morathi end up killing them via combat and knocking the enemy's remaining stat off? Quite a tricky combo to pull off but that could be a serious nail in the coffin! :D
