Re: 2400 ETC - My First DE Tournament

I really like the list. Very flexible and hard hitting. Consider the idea stolen! As far as the comp goes, I would argue that you might as well go with the interpretation that the "other"-bit on mounted is separate from ds/peg. As such, your bsb would unfortunatley be a power choise on his...

Re: Handling the Asrai and Trueflight spam

I have been running a SCGT-komped list as of lately and found a bleaksword/bloodwack bunker with a L2 fire wizard to be quite handy against woodies. The wizard can chuck 36" fireballs with relative leisure from there as well as whichever complementary spell she happen to have. The block is larg...

Re: 2400 ETC-esque list with double cauldrons

Thanks. I have been fiddling around with battlescribe and do agree that the BSB needs to switch focus. I´d be uncomfortable in sticking a regular bsb with the witches as they will backstab him. A Hag bsb would be an option albeit a very frail one. Dropping a unit of harpies and the peg would afford ...

Re: [PLOG] Going vintage

Thanks again for the feedback. Sorry about the long absense. New shades uploaded now. Have done more playing than painting this last year as well as an excursion into internet blood bowl (thanks for the game Pahvivalmiste!) which took a bit of time. More stuff is on the way but the manti-lord photo ...

2400 ETC-esque list with double cauldrons

Everyone seem to be trying out double-thingies as of lately. I was thinking that double we-horde with cauldrons might have a bit of mileage. Monstrous cav seems rather harshly comped this time around and RBTs are not. Do you guys think this would work or is is more of a gimmickey list? Frenzy is a b...

Re: dual dragon 2400p etc (draft2)

I like it! Should be loads of fun. There are of course less favourable matchups but you know that already. With regards to tinkering, I would consider flamebanner on the witches. They may get stuck fighting a dragonbane character but on the other hand, they will also do well against trolls and other...

Re: Your Experiences from using Dark Magic?

I like it particularly because it is really useful throughout the game, perhaps even more so than the 8 standard lores. Early, the opponent is forced to choose between dispelling black horror (sideways through the deployment zone if possible) or a couple of doombolts to the face. The extra 2D S1 AP ...

Re: 1500 All-mounted (well, almost) list for fancy tournamen

Yes, the hydra might be a bit of a weak link in this particular list. I am keeping it against better judgement, primarily to keep the list "friendly" looking. Funny how hydra and friendly can be used in the same sentence in this edition. Well, almost.

Game on in a few minutes. Report later.

1500 All-mounted (well, almost) list for fancy tournament

Tournament coming up this weekend. All input appreciated. What will this list struggle against? Does the lore fit? What would you replace? I was thinking about lore of heaven but double doombolts feels better for this list as I plan to do a lot of running about. There is no comp per se but the ones ...

Re: 2500 PTS Local tourney list

I really love this list! Had a couple of games with it now. It really has lots of responses to different opposition. Heeding your advice, I dropped the gear on the hag in favor of a unit of harpies. They tend to earn their keep and more. As for the sorceress, I find that she excel in both fast and h...

Power of Darkness and Power of ETC

Last time I checked, the number of additional power dice that can be generated each turn is 2 under ETC conditions. Power of Darkness generates D3 power dice. If Power of Darkness generates 3 power dice, the caster suffers one wound. The wound is connected to the number of pd generated, not to the d...

Re: 2500 PTS Local tourney list

I really love how this list looks. Will try a variant of this list for my next game. Will try these humble changes however: L4 w/ steed, Black Amulet, Dispel Scroll, Ironcurse Icon -Will go with the knights unless the matchup favours otherwise. Not sure if it is healthy but S7/5 on the knights is so...

Re: 8th Edition MSU, 2400 pts ETC

It almost looks... friendly. But then again, the last time I played one of your “friendly” looking lists I had my behind quite elegantly handed to me. This does indeed look like one of those lists. Lots of redundancy and everything hurts, though that makes it a bit tricky to comment on the list with...

Re: My first DE list, 2k points - input welcome

Another option for the master is to keep the shield and give him a horse instead. It still saves 2pts, he still has 1+ armor but you get an extra 2M and the option of vanguarding for him. You lose Fear and 2 S4 so not always useful but it does give you more options.

Re: 2500 PTS Local tourney list

Beautiful indeed! I would love to read a battle report with this list.

I cant quite think of something with which to replace the cauldron, should you prefer that. 275pts is a lot though. Would the list play any better with (almost) another 10 knights or another witch-horde?

Re: 1200pts Mini Monster Mash for Triumph & Treachery

Ok, next try after input by the esteemed resident corsair Calisson. Quite different but should play similarly. More shooting though so I could also afford to stay back more often. Shades are there to fill up points. They are frail but below 100pts so it should be ok. One option would be to ditch on...

Re: 1500 tourney list let me know what you think!! :)

+1 on RBTs. One or two rarely goes wrong. Making the peg master BSB and dropping the guy on foot gets you points for two. Or a hydra/kharibdyss if you prefer that. Also, the sorc looks rather frail to go in your main combat block. A ward save might be an idea. Apart from that, the list looks fun to ...

First time Triumph & Treachery game tomorrow. Four players including me. 1200pts is a wierd size but what I came up with is this. How does this list look? The gear on the master feels a bit lame. How to change that? I have not been able to fit in the Cloak of Twillight yet I really do like the ...
