Re: Next ET books

But really....did Warhammer even have any romance other than Tyrion and Allarielle? I guess there might have been Ariel and Orion but they just killed them off. Not sure you'd call it "romance" per se, but there was Malekith/Morathi of course, for an edition or so, until they got all PC a...

Re: Tome of Furion: before or after random spells?

Yup, re-reading it you're right it does override the BRB :mrgreen:

This is pretty much a dice off situation, and potential mess, until it gets FAQed then. Here's hoping "even better" will be official ruling... when ever they get around to doing FAQs again.

Re: Tome of Furion: before or after random spells?

Page 134 Wizards and Spell Lores. Wizards that have the ability to chose spells must do so during the list building phase (ie: it's written down on your army list which you chose), definitely before random spells.

Re: Regrowth Cauldron, Manbane Black Dragon Egg

Don't think you can, the Cauldron is a character's mount right? A funny one, but one nonetheless. Meaning regrowth specifically forbids healing it, you can however Lifebloom it.

Oddly enough though, you can heal the bloodwrack shrine since it is purely a unit of its own.

Wouldn't a theoretical SoS deathstar work better with a life sorc? Same situation as witches, except you don't have to worry about them shanking your mage plus they already have a 4++ save in close combat, so once they're on combat you can save dice on defensive buffs and use your secondary casters ...

No they wouldn't, special rules don't stack like that unless specifically mentioned to. ASF + Timewarp is still just ASF and gets cancelled out by ASL.

How about Lvl1 Life Sorc, 80 points a pop, default for regen spell and you're pretty tanky against anything not using fire.

If I could get the 4++, the tome, and the blades I would all day. Unfortunately that is 105 points so I had to settle for the 5++ instead. That said I've found it reliable enough when paired with the wound glut from Soul Stealer. Have you considered Black Amulet+Tome and OTS? Basically does the sam...

Damn its been a really long time, but IIRC the Dru Perim were the original cabal of nobles that backed Malekith during the Sundering. Many of them were also sorcerers. After the move to Naggaroth and the 'purge' of male sorcerers the term became more of an honorrific for highborns from very old and ...

Re: New book, new start! Character ideas for lower level gam

Could use a unit of 5 warlocks to fill up your wizarding at lower points games. Level 2 mages, come with Doombolt and Soulblight, which should be rather nasty with the smaller model count. As for a general, IIRC basic master with something like Sword of Might, 5++ talisman, shield, SDC and heavy arm...

Not because they have stubborn, stubborn is a nice rule to have, but because they fill a role that frankly is filled by our other (cheaper) troops. If you go after masses you take witches, if you go after armor you take execs... Leaving Black Guard kind of in the middle as a reliable (but expensive...

Given you've got three monsters in there, life seems like a pretty good deal, even if you don't get regrowth you can still ping wounds back on to the dragon, hydras and characters. Have you considered keeping Dark Riders at min core requirement and trying to squeeze in some Warlocks for some debuffs...

We've had auto-hit and auto-wound for plenty of editions now and I have never ever seen anyone try to argue that the latter meant the former was also included by RAW. This is just ridiculous.
