Re: Mixing box of DR and Glade Riders to give 8 DR + 5 locks

Looks great, looks like I'll be mixing a box of both then!

Thanks for the feedback, Helle I'd be interested in seeing some pictures as well!

Mixing box of DR and Glade Riders to give 8 DR + 5 locks

Has anyone tried mixing DR and Glade Riders? I'm guessing you could buy a box of each and stick the DR torsos to the Glade Rider legs, giving you 5 DR, 5 warlocks and leaving you 3 GR to convert to DR. Are there any problems with doing this that couldn't easily be fixed with a bit of Greenstuff?

Re: Pidgeon plucker pendant

Pigeon plucker tells about models. Reading p.105, there's no doubt that character & mount constitute a single model. The sentence on page 105 I think you're referring to is under the heading "Monstrous Cavalry Mount" Very rarely, a character will have the option to ride a monstrous be...

Re: Pidgeon plucker pendant

I'd guess the 1.8 update about fast cavalry is to specifically allow characters on fast cavalry mounts like dark steeds to join dark riders without causing them to lose fast cavalry status. "If a Fast Cavalry unit is joined by a character without the Fast Cavalry rule, the unit loses the rule&q...

Re: Pidgeon plucker pendant

Would it be 5+ for wounds off the mount only? Other rules which apply to mounts (tough skin, flaming attacks etc) wouldn't be given to the rider. Page 82 Unless otherwise noted, special rules that apply to the mount do not normally also apply to the rider, and vice versa. There are, however, a few e...

Re: [PLOG] Druchii-on-a-budget army

I'm very slowly getting through rank-and-file, but fancied a change so over the weekend I've added three dismounted heroes to the army. GW don't seem to want to make any level 1 sorceress models (to me they all look like scary level 4s) so I've made one myself out of an old Dark Eldar Wych torso wit...

Re: Decent and cheap harpy option from mantic

Oh nice find, thanks! I've looked through the Mantic site before and wasn't impressed with their spindly elves but their newer models are brilliant - I wouldn't have thought of looking in the dirty-peck section at all. £1.50 for a great looking harpy is excellent!

Re: Beginner 1200 points

There are some great builds for Dreadlords and other characters here. With the points cost, the corsairs would be 230 (20 * 9pts base costs, 20 * 2pts for compulsory weapon choice and 10pts for musician) and the CoKs would be 160 (5 * 30pts for models and 1pts for mus).

Re: Shooting at Characters in Units

My understanding is if a pegmaster joins a unit of 5 warlocks including a champion and the unit takes a single hit from a RBT, the target is chosen randomly as there are fewer than five rank-and-file models in the unit. If the unit is hit by 6 repeater bolts from a RBT, one hit is allocated to each ...
