Rising from the Vault of the Dead....

Hey All! Long time no chat! It's been a while for me, I played back in 6th and 8th heavily, before finishing out 8th edition with my VC (including surprising the **** out of some folks at the last 8th edition Buckeye Battles with a Vampire Lord on a Zombie Dragon, but I digress) and then AoS hit, an...

Re: Rediscovering AoS

this is an old post so I am not sure if you already solved this, but battlescribe is a tool you can use as an army builder. You still need your battle tome or warscroll cards for the rules, but the tool will print an effective army list to meet the standards of any Tournament Organizer so you should...

Re: End Times: Khaine

I have both and enjoyed what I have read so far in both. Some parts are a little like the history sections of the army books, but overall I think they are excellent reading material.

Oh, and if they conclude the civil war, I am with the archaon band wagon.

Thanks for the feedback everyone. I went 2 cauldrons because I was concerned about making sure everything was within 6" for the buff. With two tha effectively gives me two 12" bubbles I can work with for maximum coverage. I chose not to have any witches because that would take away from mo...

2500 pts RAW Cauldron Tournament List

So I just found out a tournament I am going to early next year is specifically ruling that the Cauldron is "read as written" so it affects shooting and magic in addition to close combat. When we read that, my good friend encouraged me to abuse the F*** out of it and go all in on a shooting...

Re: Clarification: Hydra

I am pretty sure he was actually referring to the monster itself being male and not the handlers. I am not sure how he knows they are male, but Calisson is obviously a much better parazoologist than I. :)

Re: 2500 -- I hate Swedish Comp ...

I will chime in and agree with both sides here. I think the IDEA or INTENT of the swedish comp system is a noble and excellent goal. I like it. However I think the nature of humanity and how fallible humans can be, the implementation of Swedish comp leaves a lot to be desired. I believe the intent o...

Re: Cold One Knight unit

I agreee with Heartsbane, if you put a sorceress in the CoK unit, then go for beasts over life. Life has some higher casting costs, and with only two spells its going to be very easy for your opponent to pick the right spell to dispel each round nullifying her. Plus the signature spell for Beasts is...

Red I think that what people were saying is that the same issues you have with them are the same issues we have as Dark elf players in general. They are no worse at being killed from shooting than witches and are actually slightly better with at least a shield. Is the shield worth 4 points? No, but...

Zombie Dragon Swarm of Flies + Glittering Scales

Suppose a Vampire Lord on a Zombie dragon is equipped with Glittering Scales. The zombie dragon swarm of flies forces enemy models in base contact with the dragon to be -1 to hit. Glittering Scales also inflicts -1 to hit the vampire. Does this mean opponents are at -2 to hit the vampire? What happe...

Re: Are Executioners mandatory now?

Why only 1+ AS units? Their S6 makes them equally good at any armour over 6+. There's a lot of stuff that would be covered in that category that aren't Skullcrushers, and which S3, S3AP or S4 units would otherwise struggle to scratch. Plus, there's also the question of wounding - again, S6 is great...

Re: Are Executioners mandatory now?

I think Askador raises a good point. You will meet some armies that have 1+ armour saves, but these are mainly WoC and Empire. WoC should not be a hard matchup for DE anyway, and I don't really see what the Executioners will do here anyway. The Empire matchup becomes so much harder if he has HBVGs ...

The guys posting above me have some great, well accepted points.

Here is a list to the Character Compendium Thread that discusses many many different options for character loadouts and their uses. It is a bit long so it might take some time to wade through, but it is well worth the read.

You only hit on 4s and wound on 5s. It in return hits on 3s, wounds on 2s, no armor save and has thunderstomp. Plus the phoenix h...
