What you've got is a general common tactic I find in getting rid of a nasty unit. Most often though, its not really worth sacrificing 200 points to buy yourself some time from getting eaten by a monster unit, especially when in the end you're not getting anything back for it. What's normally easier ...

Mobile gun lines work quite well (and don't forget the accompanying magic element - use lots of MMs). RBTs to be used as bait, DR, couple units of RXBmen, will generally be able to take away the support unit after which point you can easily take on the rest. Chariots work quite well as do march bloc...

I find that as long as you have Ld9 you're fine. So, I don't bother worrying about the knights. With the chariots, I tend to do one of 2 things. Get more, or have the general nearby. 3 of them testing on Ld8 gives you a good chance of making at least 2. You group them all together and you'll almost ...

I try not spend much at all these days. I'm much more patient these days to find good deals on eBay and the like to the point where I've barely spent any money in the last year or so on figs. Still likely $100 a year though on various stuff I suppose though.

New miscast table: well okay this is a change that doesn't help us, but it doesn't hurt that much either, we still have the soulstone which is more than most armies have. (and besides, I never liked magic anyway :P) I disagree with this one. With only one roll (snake eyes) that outright kills the s...

Your army has 2 very expensive sorcereresses and another character in a very small army. Dropping a l2 sorceress sorceress would enable you to get another 10 crossbowmen. I wouldn't recommend this personally since I find the sorc to be more valuable than another unit against wood elves - chillwind ...

I bounce between death and dark depending on the opponent, though I find I tend to go with death more often. That being said, you can fairly reliably get a 5 casting magic phase (with useful spells) using 2 L2s and dark if you've also got the wand and if you end up rolling up a pair of doombolts and...

With 2 swords, you can attempt to parry two different attacks from 2 different sources (say if you had 2 models attacking you), which is still useful - at least that's how we've been playing. "Okay... this one attack is from the sword, the other two are from the axe"? Pretty much, yeah. Al...

I suppose I've likely used him more than most people, and I think he's worth it. Sure, you have to be careful when you use him and use him appropriately, but if you've got the proper strategy down, then he's practically unbeatable. In fact, I've only had him go down once and that was because the sce...

The first thing I noticed was that Shadowblade could kill his general in turn 1 Not necessarily as he could easily challenge with the champion or could refuse your own challenge, etc, meaning that you could always lose or get bogged down. Point being that its still risky and really, there's no need...

I don't bother to be too WYSIWYG with Mordheim, myself. I just try to be consistent. Henchmen with missile weapons really should have them just because its easy and they're not likely to gather up too much other equipment anyways. Heroes, on the other hand, are more difficult to make WYSIWYG so I ra...

On the subject of fear, do remember what sort of culture (in the game) this game is geared towards. Its not like 40K where the big ass bug with talons three times as large as you are standing right in front of you doesn't even cause you to flinch. Its the game of fearful peasants who get upset when ...

-archers 10pts Something to keep in mind when giving suggestions is not to make them too outlandish. Decreasing a unit by 2 points per model doesn't solve anything since it just means you can get more of them in an army. That's not to say that the cost shouldn't go down, but you need to compensate ...

I'm not so sure all that equipment or even the highborn is necessary for this kind of task. Also, no matter what, the unit of knights is going to be at +2 combat res (assuming they've bothered with a banner), which means you need to kill 3 of them to win that first round of combat. That's barely pos...

Also, don't forget that the hydra's spere of influence is now 12" in diameter with a flame template on top of that. (Not that I am a fan of the Hydra; I'd rather another pair of chariots) I haven't forgotten, but its not like you can really just walk up to a unit right in front of you and brea...

Do the corsairs work particularly well with this set-up or were you just desperate to use some sweet models? ;) Depending on the army setup, if you have the special slots, I'd certainly say that the ideal is likely executioners instead, but comp-wise you tend to get a better rating using more core ...

Its not bad, if a little annoying perhaps, and in escalation, you may have issues even with the autarch when rolling for your reserves. I love the idea for sure, but there is a great deal of min maxing going on that won't win you many comp points. Also, I tend to disagree on the immune to CC point a...

Its pretty clear that the strength is reduced to 0. No matter how you cut it, that's the case. The question revolves around the result. The result is also fairly clear, though people have disputed. 0 stats do exist, but have varying results. 0 toughness means you're dead, 0 wounds means you're dead,...

I kind of like one on foot to be in a unit of either RXBmen (where she can leave the unit safely most times when necessary owing to its position near on on top of a hill and therefore out of LOS) on attached to an RBT.

And yes, if he were, then the bunker would tie up a lot of points for no benefit. But it will be rare to find a vampire with M less than 7" and more likely 8", now that everybody will be mounted. Such a creature is indeed likely to charge out of his unit if you give him an opening. That w...
