If you don't mind though I have one small criticism, I think the Anti Paladin's black armour needs a little bit of highlighting so it doesn't look so flat. Unless thats just the photo not doing it justice. The only reason there is black armor on the figure at all right now is because she is still u...

thank you everyone for your compliments! I was especially surprised by those that I got on the skin as this was the first time I had painted any large amount of flesh. Does anyone have any ideas on how I should paint the flesh above the hilt of the sword on my character? I was going to try and make ...

Ok, I'm a bit confused only in that. One poster said, to have a cauldron JOIN a unit of executioners. No one said this at all. Someone did however say this: -I would then make a Death Hag a BSB and give her the ASF banner, Rune of Khaine and Manbane. -Put the BSB in a large-ish block of Executioner...

Yeah the eyes were supposed to come out better, they didn't turn out at all how I practiced. Maybe a serpent would work better with the army, i will have to give it a shot when I paint my BG banner.

Mangara's Army, The beginning. A fair few pics are present.

Here is some of what I have painted for my army. I chose a purple color scheme but not such a traditional one. I am a slow mediocre painter so the quality isn't the best and I don't put very many models out very fast, but I try. The entire army is done with a green eyed theme. I am going for serpent...

The cauldron is very, very useful, it doesn't matter if it spends time in combat as it will still give its blessing to whomever you wish. and the blessing is brutal. It can give your infantry the ward to make it across the board alive or it can give really any unit in the army the killing power it n...

What's the function of having 7x2 BG? What makes it so good? I don't really see it... Like I said... I've never played BG before. The function of 7x2 Black guard is to maximise frontage. As black guard are elite and very expensive you will win combat through active combat resolution(I.E. kills) and...

I agree with smiler on dropping the Ring of Hotek, but I always like to have a dread knight in my CoK. I would drop the musician in your black guard as a musician in a stubborn ItP unit is next to worthless. Trying to make them bigger would be a huge help as well, as smiler said 14 in a 7x2 formatio...

Harpy Wing Bitz Packs

I read somewhere that the wings that come in the Harpy Wing bitz packs are only half of the wings. Never having seen a harpy model shy of pictures and not having any wings to look at myself I was wondering if these were enough to attach to Daemonettes in the place of buying the awful, awfully expens...

I most definitely suggest at least 2, but possibly 3 war hydras as well as a Dragon Lord. The Pendant BSB isn't a bad idea either as he can hold up against dragons and other nasty's for quite some time. A lot of people go exceptionally mobile with lots of DR and Harpies but in any situation where ov...

I like the list, but I think you will find a lone level 4 to be underwhelming in the magic phase and she may just turn out to be a glorified scroll caddy. My first thought when reading the list would be to Make the sorceress your General and make the death hag your BSB, this will give your army a la...

One other thing to add... IMHO, it would be more fun to buff weaker armies than to nerf powerful ones. Takes some of the negativity out of the game and sends a positive message to the developers; if you can't fix them, we will. This unfortunately only adds to the power creep that all games suffer f...

I prefer a unit of executioners with the banner of Hag Graef as their chance to wound is twice as high as that of witch elves and they are going to destroy the armor on whatever they hit. Personally I like the unit of can openers that Execs turn into with ASF. This could just be because I like execu...

You dont have a lot of soldiers in this list. And i dont like Death Hags with army standards, due to their lack of armour save. I would put the army standard in the hands of a master, give him heavy armour and a sea dragon cloak. (: I would assume the purpose of the BSB is to give the executioners ...

you don't really need the cauldron. My Exec unit (which is excatly the same) plows through units just fine without it. My executioners are the last unit that I plan on bolstering with the cauldron. The cauldron is there to throw around some ward saves until I get into combat at which point it will ...

Why would you ever give dark riders shields? Their fast cavalry rule is what makes them good, I'd suggest dropping those first and foremost. Honestly I don't know what you would do with the points but those shields don't do your riders any good at all.

False, this is just plain false. Against a unit of 5 models with 25mm, one of the handlers are in base contact with the 5th model. You basicly have 4 on the Hydra because they are 25mm and the Hydra is 50mm then the handlers has to be on one side of the Hydra which extend the reach of the frontage ...

no, moving the cauldron would not stop it from casting its blessing. The blessing is chosen at the start of the turn, before the movement phase begins, therefore you choose your blessing and then move.
