Re: Forum Resurrection Advice

Sadly, I don't think it's the image uploading issue that has killed this forum. There just isn't the player base anymore. Spending a lot of time and energy fixing the image uploading issue isn't going to resolve that.

Re: Converting WHF fan fic into None Warhammer fic

I think it's an interesting idea, but I'm a little confused as to what you are intending this lore to be for. Is this the creation of an army book for a game kind of like warhammer? a novel you are writing? something else? If it's for a novel, I think you are investing your energy too much into crea...

Re: Original metal manticore (6th edition army book) base si

That is correct. The last manicure was on 50mm by 100mm IIRC. GW went that way towards the end, it was part of their make monsters and everything bigger so that they looked more powerful and they could charge more for their purchase.

Re: Original metal manticore (6th edition army book) base si

The original manticores (back in the days of 3rd ed) were on 40mm bases. The general rule was always that you should use the base that the model came with. If it did not come with a base, it's pretty much up to you as to how to base it - there are two main philosophies: i) pick a base that seems rig...

Re: Most beneficial ruleset for Wood Elves

Wood Elves are a tough army to play, even after the release of the 2014 army book. But typically the problem with any army coming across as weak lies not with the rules, but rather with the player understanding HOW that army plays best. If your friend is feeling willing, he might benefit from readin...

Re: New DE armybook RULES analysis

Yes, by "battle" they mean "game".

Combat between units is typically referred to by GW in its rulebooks as "melee" and "close combat" but never AFAIK "battle".

Re: DE vs WOC 2500P 8th

Fun game. Your list looks very tailored to taking on WoC (e.g. the executioners and witchstar) - was that a deliberate choice from knowing who/what you were going to be facing or just happy good fortune? Dark Elves can do anything well but can't do everything well. In my experience, melee oriented d...

Re: Eighth Edition Army - All Comers

I sadly don't get to play these days really - different phase of life and all - but I went through a similar transition back in 2009 when I picked up the game again after a 15 year or s...

Re: Eighth Edition Army - All Comers

8th edition had a lot more bulk and staying power built into the game. Gone were the days of expensive elites ruling the battlefield: new rules such as steadfast and stepping up put staid to that. As a result, your army looks too fragile to me. You have no real bulk (blocks of infantry) and the cava...

Nothing - it's all gone, blown up, kaput. Yeah.

Assuming you are talking about pre-Age of Sigmar, it might be helpful to know what you need the information for? The proximity to the chaos wastes gives you quite a lot of license to just dump down what you want there, but it depends on what you need.

Re: 8th: Hydra or Kharibdyss vs Treeman?

Both will struggle with a treeman - but the K Beast would probably do better given its monster killing properties. To some extent though, I would consider the broader goals of the model. A hydra has a lot of versatility and I would give more thought to what your overall battle strategy is rather tha...
