Hi, fellow D.netters!


There is a problem with fighting most other armies.
At present, if a DE general wishes to improve his knowledge about how to beat other armies, the D.R.A.I.C.H. post with the antitacticas(link) is too long and hard to exploit. :cry:

Only few armies have a decent antitactica:
HE = High Elves...........***D.R.A.I.C.H- High Elf Tactica
Empire........................*** D.R.A.I.C.H. - Strike the Empire.
Bret = Bretonnians.......*** D.R.A.I.C.H. - Taming the Horse Lords - Beating Bretonnians
WE = Wood Elves ........***D.R.A.I.C.H.-Waging Woodland War: Flaming the Wood ElvesStonecutter, with the help of Tethlis, Malevion & Auere made together an extensive article on how to beat them. With 4 strategists working together, Woodies stand no chance.
Chaos Demons............. ***D.R.A.I.C.H- Banishing the DaemonsMalevion made a wish to help D.netters getting rid of them. Wish completed!
OK = Ogre Kingdoms.... ***D.R.A.I.C.H How to kill a big mean Ogre v7.0Enkiel did his bull rush before they get a new army book.
Dwarves............................D.R.A.I.C.H.Dwarf tactica, how to open tough, tin cans gramash took some spare time to provide tips.



For all the other armies, the only thing D.net has to offer is the collection below of threads with no structure, expressing a few opinions often based on little experience with our present army.

There is a need to remove all of these old threads and replace them with a single thread for each army, written by someone who knows what he speaks about.
This is what I've done with my other army, the Empire.


What about YOU?
Would you write something about what a DE army could do to beat the other army YOU are knowledgeable about?
:P

If so, please, PM me or report below!
Your work is direly needed and will be appreciated by many readers once you've posted it.

Thank you! :D

Calisson.

I collect Lizardmen, but I'm not sure about my ability to make a DRAICH quality article. I'll send my first attempt once i've made it.

Already, if you write a synthesis of the few threads available, that will be a tremendous progress!
Hopefully your article will trigger some comments.
Thanks.

Brets are done. :twisted:
Lizzies and Woodies are on track. :P
There is still some room for would-be D.R.A.I.C.H. authors. :roll:
Who will help D.netters to take care as they should of the following races that we hate so much?
Beasts of Chaos - Chaos Demons - Dogs of War - Dwarves - Orcs and Goblins - Ogres - Skaven - Tomb Kings - Vampire Counts - Warriors of Chaos

I would really like to read some tactics on Lizardmen. They just seem so damn strong on paper, and should I ever face them, I think I would be in for a tough battle.

Sharpen your blades, prepare for your next expedition! :twisted:
Woodies are done!

Four :shock: more antitacticas on the writing table!
We are now waiting for Lizzies, Dawis (see post below), DoC and WoC! :P (first post above edited accordingly).


If you know how to beat one of the following races,
and agree to share your knowledge for the sake of Malekith's glory (and yours, too ;) ), send me a PM or just report below:
Beasts of Chaos - Dogs of War - Orcs and Goblins - Ogres - Skaven - Tomb Kings - Vampire Counts

Do we actually have to be good with this other army we play? lol

In a theoretical world, where I can find some spare time, I will try to put something together on OnG.

I play Ogre, and know them very well, but i'm not sure if its really worth it to spend any time working on some strategy when a new book is on the horizon (ok, 2011, but still)

@ Malevion
Your PM seems full of interesting ideas, as far as I can judge, as I've never met them.
You can add detail it prior to post it, or later, taking the comments into account, as you wish.
Please make sure the presentation is spaced enough, leaving empty lines for the reader to take a breath, and providing titles where applicable.
That will sure be apreciated as well. ;)

@ Camaris
Thanks for volunteering.
By the way, writing an article is one of the best way to increase your proficiency about what you wrote, as a matter of fact, the writer usually benefits more from the article than any reader.
So, the answer is that whatever your level was prior to your writing, it will have improved!

@ Enkiel
If you want to contribute, the sooner the better.
By the way, isn't the 8th edition closer on the horizon anyway?
All the D.R.A.I.C.H. will have to be reviewed...
Better modify later than have nothing for one more year.


I'll mention both of you on the first post of the present thread, so that nobody else starts the same topic.
If later on you feel that you're not going to do it, just let me know.

Thanks again for all of you! :D


This makes now six antitacticas on the writing tables! :o
Just a handful remain:
Beasts of Chaos - Dogs of War - Skaven - Tomb Kings - Vampire Counts
