Re: A Cunning Plan from Ulthuan.net (re: Cult of Slaanesh)

I'm hoping the cult of slaanesh will turn up in a future chaos endtimes book now that they dont fit in Elves anymore.

Re: One-wheel mystery solved

Druchii are the risk takers of the Elven people; they just wanted a chariot that could fall over when it stopped because it seemed like a cool idea at the time.

Re: Warlock extra ranks

If you want a fragile deathstar, sure. Fragile? How so? All the characters in the front rank will be 1+ armor. All the Warlocks are 4+ ward. I agree. 6+/4++ is not fragile. Large footprint makes it largely resistant to the wrecker of elven deathstars; the s5 template. Fragility is not the warlockst...

Slaaneshi lvl4 with minimal toys hiding behind the soul grinders seems like it would work fine to me.

Re: Bloodwrack Medusa + Babysitter

Hitting on 5+? That's as good as shades early in the game and dark riders most of the time. It's not as terrible as people think. The potential of damage to (usually) small units of heavy cavalry should not be underestimated. But at the same time not overestimated. Medusa is a cheap redirector that...

Re: Bloodwrack Medusa + Babysitter

Since it's a ranged "weapon" you have, why not move her into charge range of the enemy(preferrably within 12"), then stand&shoot? mournfangs charge her, every hit wounds on a 2+ no armor save, for that cheap amount of points sounds pretty good, even if she dies after. she also ha...

Re: That's no Moon, Death Star Compendium 2013

Wow, that's a very dead unit of dogs you just charged and overran... Kudos though. If this were an online game you would probably have gotten a trophy for the overkill.

Funny if an enemy flank charged and all the hags simply made way into them. Not so funny if your opponent throws 6 dice at dwellers.

In first case, keep one in, keep one out. In second case, flee? Why do you think Dark Magic is so good? Honestly, I think Shadow is much better. I find Dark pretty much like it's always been, only moreso. Awesome against elves, humans and undead, poor vs WoC and Ogres. If you had to make an all com...

Pick Black Horror, stick her on a Dark Steed, and run her in a unit of Warlocks up the flank of a battleline. Drop Soulblight on a target of opportunity, then throw out the Black Horror. Warlocks...

Biggest nerf; Chariots lost a wheel! Now they can fall over while still tethered to their beasts.

There could also be some potential for Dark Riders in Metal. Dark Riders /w shields and Metal's Glittering cloak could make for cheap, exceptionally fast 2+ (if my math is right) cavalry.

Re: botwd vs black horror

I believe I addressed that referencing the instant kill text. Black horror qualifies as a special attack, but allows ward saves, but because the text in the BoTWD specify wounds, which special attacks do not cause, it can't be used. The instant kills text box is irrelevant. The basic ward save rule...

@Dalamar, not sure if it's as simple as that. This isn't an BRB vs. AB discussion, it's about AB vs. AB. The wording for Banner of the World Dragon specifically says you get a ward saves from "wounds caused by magical...etc". Black Horror doesn't generate any wounds, so by RAW, you can't ...

My gut reaction is that they don't know any 'lores' so wouldn't get access to any cataclysm spells. Still get to chuck out the cantrips though, which are the real gamewinners in SoM anyway.

Re: The biggest question now: Which Lore?

Dark on my lvl4, beasts on my lvl2, plus a unit of warlocks.

Shadow will still be the best bet, but the combo I have will be a solid smashy alternative with a wildform mage to help boost the core.
