(Mod's note: hydra mention removed - Calisson) Elven HtH Lords/Heros are the worst bang for the buck compared to all other armies, so something needs to make up for overpaying for them. I mean 80 pts for 2W T3 S4 3A. Without expensive magic armor/weapons 2-35pt T4 Goblins have the major edge. (Yes ...

(Mod's note: hydra mention removed - Calisson) Anyway. I've tried big cheap spearmen blocks, but the 40m RxBs or 40 Corsairs with 2H + frenzy banner always seem to outperform the spears (survive more, have additional benefits ie ranged or 3A). I am partial to a 30m spearmen block with warbanner as ...

Yea, the ladies are a common part of my army. I run the unit of 14 with the Banner of Murder. I like to put them right in front of armor save 2+ knights and dare my opponent to charge. They usually bite on the potential to eat a no armored small unit. They quickly find that 22-35 pt knights (common ...

Best bang for your buck unit? (Excluding Hydras of Course)

So I've been playing a lot of 8th edition games recently and besides learning that War Hydra's are broken (big news, I know). Is that it seems the most effective bang for my buck unit is my RxBs. It's partly due to how a field them, 1 unit of 40 with shields a standard and a musician. They form the ...

spear doesn't require two hands, and you can get a 5+ light armor, shield, spear.

I believe Pikes are 2 handed weapon that fights in ranks, and i don't even think they exist anymore.

can any of the rule hawks confirm this what frostbite just said?

with 'Ardboyz you'll be facing tough lists (hopefully if time allows, one of mine). You need contingencies for the great cheese lists. Something like 2 Star Dragons, or 2 Greater Demons wouldn't be unheard of. Something like a 6 bolt thrower list with shooting units to offer some protection against ...

i run a 30 man unit with a warbanner for sick combat rez. It's nice because 8 need to die to lose a rank. And with combat rez 6 they're hard to beat, especially for all those pesky uber lords these days. Challenge with the champion opponent maxes out at 6, your musician wins it. Don't like the 20 ma...

hah go check out my list, has the same problem, no capturing units. Wouldn't want you to take it to a GT either.

Ur right u can move out of the way of a block in the woods, the idea is UR not in the woods now, therefore vulnerable.

But anyway obviously ur set on it, tell me how it goes.

personally i don't like sorceresses in warbands, things like black horror, and soul stealer are not as good. Chillwind may also not work as well if the enemy has a ton of small shooting units instead of 1 big one. Master in a chariot is my fav, bash through unit after unit. maybe some harpies. Other...

alls i be sayins is if the ring is in the middle of your army 90% of the army is DEFINITELY covered, if it's on the dragon 100% of your army is SOMETIMES covered. 'Tis risky. Anyhoo ur dragon should be fine if he turns his casting unit around to cast on the dragon ur entire army can get rear/flank c...

I never like a lvl 4 alone, need at least 1 lvl 2 to help draw away dice. 4 units of harpies with 2 units of shades might be overkill on the light stuff (I know i'm gonna get yelled at for that one). At 2250 you'll need to watch out for a heavy cav army. A few light units should be enough to marchbl...

harpies pinning the wizards is perfect, thanks. As for the dragon charges i'm with marauder, tried and done. 9 attacks against armor regen and ward save isn't enough. I actually came up with my own plan (finally). Suicide 2 chariots in after a round of shooting. Hopefully knock the rank down to 2, c...

yea though the enemy has his movement phase to get away from the ring. And when playing DEs a tourny general should know to spread out his casters a little.

love the changes. Shades much more effective with the GWs, black guard last longer with the ring. One question though, without the spearmen what are your scoring units in scenarios that require them (ie breakthrough)? A few shots here or there and the BG, shades and riders are all under US 5. I see ...

i never like the RoH on a dragon. Dragon's like to get into positions for rear and flank charges, taking the RoH away from the bulk of your army. A nice centered RoH would do more than one off to the side or rear of the action.

Icon, his unit isn't frenzied so leading his unit around doesn't help much. If i try to charge and then flee to bait a pursue it won't even work (he usually just kills any minor units outright).
