Looks good. The tuning fork has to go but a weapon swap should be easy.

Looks great. I use the 5th edition blackguard models as executioners as well. I have used them as executioners since 5th edition. Sadly, they don't get a lot of table time these days.

Great work the painting is really strinking and well executed. I love the daemon heads makes your girls look even more possessed, motivated and ready to slice and dice. You have CoK, daemonette, HE chariot/hero and what other kits in this unit?

There is no such thing as a "finished" army. It is the WFB equivalent of the holy grail, often sought but ever elusive and legendary.

From list two this is a set of equipment I just don't understand.

It negates your shield, makes you strike last and still only yields +1 Strength. I would ra...

Since 1996 when a good friend introduced me to WFB. I have painted an awful lot of figures since then, sold off and acquired new armies, repainted some things. I can definitely see a ton of progress since I first started and am still improving. I just do not have as much time to paint and model as I...

Great conversions. Mordheim is okay. I seem to remember a lot of tipping models over and then standing them back up ans part of game play and the combat system was less than sleek. The carry over of the game to game campaign was fun and a big change from WFB.

The list is waht I would describe as a hard list which I am given to believe you will need in your upcomin event. It has strong shooting and magic with an element of no touch along with a copule of close combat monsters to broom things up. Basically your opponent has to kill the CoKs/BsB or the Lord...

Good, crisp, effective painting. Normally black and yellow is not a combo I'd like for this army but you have carried it off very well.

Calisson, I understand the benefits of crunching numbers but the secenario you propose it counting on 6 T3 with at best a 5+ ward save and heavy armor surviving a charge. I have attempted to urge you to consider that their are tons of units that can either kill these guys or lead them off. Anything ...

It is one thing to pop into your local store and play against an unpainted army it is quite another to travel to a tournament at considerable expense in funds and time and play an unpainted army. I dislike unpainted armies at tournaments it seems disrespectful to your fellow hobbyists.

I will be sure to stay tuned. I really like the rest of your army so I am eager to see what you have come up with for the dark riders. It makes a lot of sense that they would have had to have some local remounts during the course of a long expedition.

The frenzy is what makes it unrelyable - but a noble with 9LD can usually keep it at bay - durin a 6 turn game you usally fail it an average of 2 turn, at least in my case. This might be a silly question but what test are you talking about? Frenzy is automatic, there's no Ld test involved. The fren...

As I said before I would like to see a battle report of this tactic at a tournament. I find that I do not have great faith in your calculations based on my roughly 15 years of playing this game.

It depends to a large extent on your gaming environment. Dragons are frowned on in some places whereas the Manticore is not seen as over the top. There is a significant level of resentment for the unkillable dreadlord on dragon build.

It is a very creative concept but I am afraid it is unlikely to be viable. Ex's are T3 5+AS elves your units of 6 will be easily wiped out on the charge even if things break your way and you get the 5+ ward on the charged unit they are still going to be toast. They are so small that they will be ver...

I like the second list much better. I would be tempted to drop one more BG and the Dread knight from the CoKs and instead bump them to 6 models. You get a significantly more durable CoK unit from that switch. The unit can take one or two casualties and still be combat effective.
