Re: Strategy Help

I don't find Helebron that good actually. Where there is a blender-lord, there is also the Night Shroud to make you lose ASF. Once that happens, you're character is toast be it Helbron or a lord with the Black Amulet.

Re: Light Magic : Kharibdyss or Cold One Knights ?

Both are solid units but a Kharibdyss is just one cannon away from the dead pile. I'd go with knights.

Re: Strategy Help

Actually against Vampire blender-lords, I find the Black Amulet REALLY good. First turn you'll kill his champion. After that, he has to start making hard choices about who is going to die next.

Re: Dreadlord built vs DOC and WOC

I prefer the durable build. Every attack they make on your Dreadlord is pretty much wasted so that's combat resolution in your favor.

Re: Dreadlord built vs DOC and WOC

If you want a character to challenge out Great Demons, you'll want a Dreadlord with the Black Amulet, Other Tricksters Shard, and a weapon of choice. If you want to grind someone out, a Dreadlord with the Armor of Destiny, Dawnstone, and Great Weapon mounted on a Cold One has worked very well for me.

On Saturday night, Warhammer fantasy dies. With the end of Warhammer and the concept of "druchii" no longer existing, is this board going to be shut down? Or just re-named? Or are you planning on just going forward business-as-usual? I presume all the Warhammer race-specific boards are goi...

Re: The Warlock Beaststar vs. Dwarves

That doesn't sound like list I'd like to play against. I don't think deathstars require tactical wizardry to field and if you don't bring the exact tools to crack it, the games tend to be very lopsided wins.

Re: Tactics vs WOC

You can remove that from the back of your mind - Initiative 5 is not enough to negate the re-roll benefits of Always Strikes First. The enemy initiative must exceed your model's initiative in order to negate re-rolls.

Re: Tactics vs WOC

I don't think there is a "best" combination. A lot of it is dependent on your army composition and play style just as much as it is of your opponent. A good General will take the tools he has available and use them to win =)

Re: Is there any point buying models now?

Assuming you believe you will be able to make some kind of use of today's existing models, people are dumping their armies on bartertown so there are many good deals to be found.

Elves don't really do "deathstars" particularly well. That's the unit that will get hit with Dwellers Below or Final Transmutation or an Ogre charge and you've lost the game. Maybe it's the best thing ever but in my experience, putting all your elven eggs in one basket is a recipe for disa...
