Re: [PLOG] Raiders from the Black Ark

P1060095.jpg So I was pretty happy with the force going into my second ever tourney. I had a blast with four games against great opponents. My list was probably one of the harder lists there, so I ended up tieing for first on generalship points and coming fourth overall. More importantly I came fif...

Re: [PLOG] Raiders from the Black Ark

after getting fourteen exes done, finishing the second DR unit and a 2nd RBT, as well as a ton of movement trays, I rewarded myself with some characters:

Re: [PLOG] Raiders from the Black Ark

So I got cracking with painting models that I liked. First up were the executioners, probably still my favourite warhammer infantry models. While they look great, assembling them so that the swords will stay on and the models will stay on the movement tray is a pain: 20140322_163109.jpg 20140322_163...

Re: [PLOG] Raiders from the Black Ark

P1060221.jpg I really enjoyed painting the warband, got great feedback from everyone on the night (although they sat next to the scoring laptop all night, as the ringers weren't needed). I realised that I had hit the painting wall because I was sick of edge highlighting models that didn't really in...

Re: [PLOG] Raiders from the Black Ark

well its been roughly six months since my last post. Despite the kind words of those who posted in this thread, and my cunning plan to use the Dnet invasion as motivation, I fell into a massive hobby funk shortly after my last post. I was really unimpressed by the End Times, then further de-motivate...

Re: [PLOG] Raiders from the Black Ark (pic heavy)

Finally, I have completed a unit of 5 warlocks. Eventually they will be part of a bus of 10, so when assembling them I made sure they would rank up. I am not a fan of the GW warlock models at all, and initially didn't run them when I picked up the dark elves again. It wasn't until I saw a Dark Eldar...

Re: [PLOG] Raiders from the Black Ark

so first off I decided to do 5 dark riders, to make sure I was happy with the paint scheme, both in terms of the look and the speed of painting. I am not a fan of the new horses for dark riders, so have done them all using the time honoured glade rider conversions, which I first saw on this website....

[PLOG] Raiders from the Black Ark

Hi all I started playing WFB again last year, after about 15 years out of the hobby. I spent a lot of time collecting and prepping models, and playing games to learn the rules and start to work out how the Dark Elves (my first WFB army almost 20 years ago) play. The DNet Invasion and my plan to atte...

Re: Opinion on Cold One Chariots

Here are a couple of shots of the gamezone chariot mounted on a GW chariot base next to a converted GW high elf chariot for size comparison, using CoK cold ones and various 7th Ed DE kits for crew and spiky bits from the old 3rd edition Dark Ekdar warriors. http://i825.photobucket.com/albums/zz176/s...

New kit base sizes question

I'm looking at alternatives to the new GW CoB and Kharybdis - could someone please tell me what the base dimensions are for the GW CoB/Bloodwrack kit and the GW War Hydra/Kharybdis?
Thanks for your help!

Re: 1500 pts - returning to WHF

thanks everyone for your feedback and the very interesting discussions. I ended up going with the master BSB as is, and despite deploying terribly had a win in my first proper game, mainly thanks to some Hydra heroics. I will definitely start getting together the bits for a Master on pegasus convers...

Re: 1500 pts - returning to WHF

My mistake - I hadn't really gotten my head around the changes to frenzy. After reading up the rules a bit more I now understad that as long as the Corsairs pass the Ld test to restrain the frenzy charge, the BSB can then charge out of the unit.

Re: 1500 pts - returning to WHF

Thanks Jvf for your feedback - I like the idea of dropping two BG for the SSS, although I guess that means I won't have the master able to charge out of it.

1500 pts - returning to WHF

Hi all after hanging up the dice for several years, I am getting back into fantasy with my beloved Druchii. I have played a friendly 1k game just to get my head around the basic rules after watching a 2400pt competitive game. After lurking on here for some time, below is my first crack at a 1500pt l...

This will free up about 60 pts (If I remember right) to put into core units (Your really light there, meaning this isn't a good choice for a Tournament Environemt). Yeah, having more points in characters than anywhere else is a bit dodgy, and less than 600pts in Core is also not very balanced. I am...

thanks for your feedback. In regards to the DR - I have noticed this in a lot of the lists on this forum. Proper use of fast cav is probably my weakest area in the game. Alot of the DR heavy lists seem to centre on MSU tactics - is it still worth taking given the blocks of infantry in my list? I pre...
