True. Using the example of the Hag with the Cauldron. The Cauldron is a warmachine and the Hags are the crew. However the Death Hag is a character so I would say she WOULD be able to be sniped unfortunatly. Despite the fact that she's part of the warmachine crew. Dunno... I can see a valid argument ...

Hey mate! I ran an all Khanite list at a tourney a few years ago. I think your idea is solid but IMO if you want to go Khainite then I would take nothing but Khainite warriors. Big blocks of them with no shooting, magic or anything else apart from khainite troops. That would get you points for theme...

Hey all! I've been using the knight bus in pretty much all my games (I usually play 2000 and under). Some times with the back up of the cauldron, sometimes with out.

Hey mate!

Have you had a look on Youtube?

There are a few video battle reports kicking about. I know it's not a actual 'video' of game tactics, but it'll probably be all you will find for now...

Hope this helps.

Cheers!

1500 pt Dark elf list for an upcoming tournament.

Hey all! Well after enjoying the Dark Elves in all their awesomeness since their re-release a few years ago I've decided to leave most of my tried, tested and trusted toys/ units at home and try something completely different- ALL CAV!

Um, I think he's Strength 2 Toughness 2 if I remember correctly. He's like a house of cards.

Obviously being a mage he has no armour but am not sure if he has a ward save or not.

@flash29, it does depend on what else is in the unit. However if he's by himself then send Shadowblade in. Of course if he does have choppy characters in the unit this will make things difficult. Assuming you don't roll a 1 you could bide your time with Shadowblade and wait for another unit with a c...

Hey all!

Use Shadowblade!

Then POW!! Right in the kisser!!!

Shadowblade will probably die but at least you'll take a few of the weaklings with him and Teclis will be a pin cusion.

Hope this helps.

Could not agree more.

He's just not worth 600pts for what he can do.

However, fluff wise. He'd look sweet in a massive unit of black guard!

I have to say the change from fantasy to 40K and vice versa is quite an interesting one. I have also noticed that a number of hard core 40k players have either taken up fantasy or have made the complete transition. I think the general consesus is that 7th ed was a far more 'tactical' game that what ...

Personally, I think it's still a little too early to be 'done and dusted' on 8th ed.

Now I don't speak for the the whole Australian WHFB frat...

Actually, it's D6+4 pieces of terrain so it ranges from 5 (just a little less than standard in 7th) to 10 (quite a bit more than standard in 7th. As for terrain screwing over specific army builds... it's an incentive to build balanced armies. Completly agree. This I think is one of the beauties of ...
