Hi. Welcome to the load of people who like showing off. I for myself do that with slaves, too. BUT let me teach you how to do it better. I do that since the "new" army book was out. Each enemy model killed while it was fleeing is counted as being enslaved. This enables your dark riders and...

Hi. Continuing a canon of criticism in anohter way: - Black Guard, Chariot and Bolter don't fit. Drop them for style . - Add a cookong pot of bloody mess (Cauldron) for competitivity. Noone will cry "lameness" when you tell your number of casters. - Add up on the executioners - they'll nee...

Pathetic! Why should I sign up for things I already do myself, if not better? Really, guys. My dreadlord rides a chariot . I used the hydra only in Storm of Magic games from the scrolls of binding. Even the Pendant is rarely accessed (like on a Manti Rider with Sea Dragon Cloak as only armour). And ...

Well - you can have both . 1) Prime black. Paint with thinned black the deep areas where the spray left raw metal....

Then I'd like to point you to some issues when you go for blending : First thin your colors. having 1:1 pait:water ratio is already thick .

Hi.

I'm happy with the line of Feldherr.com
The foam trays have a convenient size for some bags&cases I found in other (cheaper) stores.
Anyway I'd recommond to magnetize, as Azure did. You'll save helluvalot time for starting a game. Beware of loose magnets, though.

If that list can win, I'll be pleasantly shocked! That being said, I'd strip out 55 points and put in a unit of Harpies. Because no Corsairs should ever be without their lucky Harpies! I think the Monster/Cav army of my friend will have Hrpies enough ;-) So effectievely it will be more like 5000Pt....

Hi guy, Some ideas on that topic: 1. Old paints tend to flock. Pigments stick to each other and create flakes. You'll find that with light yellowish paints in the extreme. 2. Shake 'em baby! Really, that might help. When you have access to tiny metal balls you might want to put some into the pot, li...

Hi. Tanks for your input so far. I believe he needs to have some sort of extra edge (besides the armor). For example, you could attune him better to a certain lore of magic or even make him only be able to choose one, but be much better at it. Perhaps a loremaster of Death? Actually he sas, compared...

I'm using wooden coffee stick to make my bases. It's a great looking base and VERY fast to complete. I'll show picture later on. GREAT idea! I'll try to get some of those.

Taking a Master on the chariot became a worse option than it was in the 7th edition. You already named the cannon double hit and the randomizing, compared to the better survivablility of other options. Stepping up, shooting from 2 ranks and not denying rank bonus in the flank is not helping at all. ...
