Re: Sea stories - tell us the unbelieveable

Hakseer The slave decks were quiet now, the howls of anger, shock and sadness had faded as they crossed the Great Ocean replaced instead by the dull silence of despair. It was a pity really for the cries had been an audible reminder of his success. With just a single ship at his command, and a mode...

I run the following and it normally works quite well: Lvl 4 Supreme Sorceress Dark Magic Whip of Agony, PoK, Black Dragon The Whip of Agony actually makes the sorceress reasonably effective in combat, two attacks at S5 with armour piercing and hatred isn't to be sniffed at and also has the advantage...

Fingol23 your reasoning with dispell against power dice does not really work does it? Morathi rolls of first and then the enemy decides how many dice he will use.

Hiya chaps, thanks for the constructive (and not constructive - Eldria! ) criticism and considerations. @ Fingol23 - first off, REALLY like your bit of work for the First War Against Chaos!

I've used her before to reasonable amounts of success, soulstealer and bladewind give her a reasonable amount of protection against warmachines. I find the Book of Ashur to be a nice item for her as it gives you a very high chance of getting any of her spells off on two dice and boosts your magic de...

At least one of his cannons will be flaming so if possible try and keep your hydra hidden until you have either killed them both or figured out which it is. In order to actually kill his warmachines I can not recommend Blade Wind enough, as combat attacks it uses the crews toughness which is amazing...

The generic baddies faction is the Unbowed, Skaven have a devoted enough player base to justify their own faction. I hope I didn't come across as being too defensive I just wanted to explain the reason for the lack and how it can be rectified in the future. Also as their are already two Druchii in t...

It is, also there has been a historically low presence of elves, particularly Dark Elves which makes it hard for the GMs to justify taking the risk to give us a specific faction, that combined with low turnout by bad guys in general tends to see us lumped into one generic faction. HOWEVER, there are...

This also means that you are not restricted to playing an...

The shadows signiture spell is a god send against High Elves for one very simple reason, cast it on their combat units to drop their initiative and they lose their re-rolls making them much, much less effective in combat.

Drasnir watched as the procesion of slaves ambled past, creatures from a wide variety of lesser races, all humbled before the might of the Druchii. The chances of those slaves being something to do with our man are probably a million to one, he thought despondantly. As he watched the last of the sla...

The lack of smoke billowing from the factory slightly concerned Drasnir, it might become slightly awkward if its homeless residents survived. Still they never saw me, so even if they do make it out of there I should have nothing to fear. . Drasnir was considering following the group of men who had c...

In the case of the BSB the Death Hag becomes a crew model for the cauldron so she is still part of the model and can therefore carry the standard.

Another interesting item for Morathi is the Book of Ashur, it gives you increased magic defense as +5 to dispel is pretty healthy and also gives you a total of +6 to cast making 2 dice spells a near certainty and meaning that to have a relativly sure chance to dispel a level 2 wizard would need to b...
