Big block of Executioners with an Annointed, lvl 2 high Mage with Khaines ring, Death Hag for frenzy and Shadowdancer to negate rank bonus. Choppy fun in the name of the Eternal King!


Dark knight wrote:
Sisters of the Thorn with a Sorceress spamming Power of Darkness (those ranged attacks start to hurt after a few casts!)
BotWD Witch/Exec horde (that moves 20" the first turn because of Malekith) is probably somewhat broken too.


Sangfroid wrote:
Tyrion with warlock bodyguard.

4++ ward against combat and shooting and 2++ against magic, loses fast cav rules but for 1000 pts that's tyrion and 15 warlocks so a plus 4 for casting soulblight and doombolt too.

If you want to stretch out the points 3 or 4 1+ masters/ Dreadlords and a champion, and then that's +5 to cast (20 models total) as well

Have toyed with the idea of dropping the crown on the Annointed for Khaine's Ring and the high Mage for a Beasts Mage to bring the attacks from strength 5 to 6.

Also Alith Anar in a combat unit with Allarielle means you get regen, a ward and minus 1 to hit from missile fire. Works nice in a block of Eternal Guard and the opponent has to take a bolt thrower to the face as they come at the unit. A tasty stubborn anvil.

You'll need to help me out with the HE Choices.

I'll update this post with new combos and builds :)

BotWD Witch/Exec horde (that moves 20" the first turn because of Malekith) is probably somewhat broken too.

Then there's stuff that's broken without any combos due to the new magic rules, like Warlocks and Sisters who know two lores... Being able to take bolt throwers from both lists might be somewhat broken too, especially when combined with wood elves with hagbane arrows. Also has anyone tested monster smash with Alarielle? It could be really strong, having access to frost chickens and hydras having two different types of regeneration.

^^Alarielle Monster Mash using HE, DE, WE beasties? Very promising :twisted:

Here's a little multilevel gunline I cooked up:

Shades n Glades -- 3K

Lords

SS Lv4 Shadow MR3 DS (or Heavens, or Death)

SS Lv4 Metal RoH RR

Heroes

BSB Master Pegasus CoT

Core

20 Glade Guard trueflight FC
-- Shadow SS here

18 Witch Elves Razor Standard FC

5 Dark Riders, Rxb, Sh

5 Dark Riders, Rxb, Sh

Special

RBT x 4

14 Shades GW FC
-- Metal SS here

5 Wildriders, Sh

5 Wardancers

5 Wardancers

Rare

5 Warlocks

5 Waywatchers

14 Sisters of Slaughter FC WarBanner
-- PegMaster starts here

Total: 2997

Rationale:

----------------------------------------------------------Wardancers--------------------------------
Dark Riders-----------------Shades-----------------------Glade Guard--------------------Dark Riders--
Wild Riders----RBT, RBT--------SoS-----Waywatchers------Witches---------RBT, RBT----Warlocks--


Multilevelled 'bowline':
- Shades (MR3) screen SoS, GG (MR3) screen Witches (both-autoflee when charged)
- Wardancers screen, redirect and assassinate in front of GG (trueflight ignores them)
- Dark Riders hunt chaff and warmachines
- RBTs put down hail of fire
- Waywatchers positioned to threaten cavalry
- All supported by Metal (Bubble Armour, Enchanted Blades, Nuke threat) and Shadow (Pit, Mindrazor, Miasma, etc) lores
- Warlocks, Wild Riders and Peg Master for countercharging threat


There are probably a lot better double Lv4 Wizard combos -- I don't have the HE *hhhhacck, spit!* book -- and Waywatcher/Shade/Gladestars out there, but I thought this an interesting demonstration of firepower backed by magic and a countercharge threat. No space for a Giant Blade/Dawnstone Dreadlord unfortunately :cry: !lol!

I am not sure whether this would work:

Malekith, Attached to High elf special unit of choice (White Lions would be my Choice), Full Command, Banner of the World Dragon.

No 2+ ward against Magical attacks and missile? BotWD takes care of that.

Thoughts?

Sadly its not possible: pg 97 BRB character that is a monster can't join other units. would be unbelieveably broken if you could though
