The steeds fly move effectively happens in the remaining moves phase. So no charges.

With the Dark Elves having a bit of a vulnerability to warmachines, my plan is to drop a master on chariot into position to threaten my opponents warmachines.

After the template has scattered, only then do you resolve the spell. (Page 9)

The powered up version is just highly risky. I prefer pendulum to pit because at least then you can target a particular model.

A Cauldron of Blood is a Death hag mount. So probably a viable target.

What would you target with Steed then?

Flying Blood Cauldron

Recently I read something that made me read Lore Of Shadow more closely. Something I noticed were the targeting rules for Steed of Shadows. "..or a Friendly character within 12" No mention is made of needing to be on foot etc. SO that got me thinking about what would I have fly around. The...

Armour piercing provides a -1 to the targets armour save. There is nothing to suggest that it stacks, so giving a unit armour piercing 10 different ways still just means that the unit's target sufferes a -1 to its armour save. if it (at the beginning of the special rules) says that rules stack unle...

Well shadow can lower either. In fact shadow can lower every stat except leadership. (If you accept Pendulum rather directly lowers wounds ;))

In my opinion the magic changes have meant that the lore is very much an integral part of the army rather than something that is tacked on afterwards. Which, to me, is a good thing. Lore choice is something that I feel is dependent on what level the caster is. To me lore of fire is a bit pointless o...

JSfelber your hammer doesn't work. With greatweapons our Execs stirke last. My Math is sound. It says Warriors with GWs as no one will run them without GWs. Hammermers have GWs also. Execs will strike First because of their higher init. Your maths is still off. ASL against ASL means simultaneous.

I've heard repeatedly that faqs go live on day of release. (From several store managers)

Though there has been disagreement on which day is release day. 8th when pre-orders arrive or 10th when the stores start selling.

... I view the Darkelves as a similar army to 7th. You have to hit in conjunction with other units (infantry and chariots/monsters, Cavalry and Charriots/monsters etc). You have to focus fire your shooting (which has gotten better) and magic to take out targets which can possibly disrupt your plans...

According to the BBRB the cauldron is indeed a "Unique" unit type.

It's rules probably will appear in the errata since they state that you randomize like warmachines, which no longer happens.

Re: RoH errata

I haven't seen anyone even mention the possibility of the RoH being changed. With miscasts being removed, (new wording does NOT call them miscasts) the new devastating "loss of control" table, and magic being a much more of a risk reward system, I highly doubt the 25 point magic-ender is ...

On the other hand, taking 3 level 2 on a single Lore grants you 100% to get once THE spell you wish absolutely to get. If you're interested.

Only one dispel scroll per army, but there are other scrolls now, for example one wounds the wizard that cast a spell on 5+ for every power dice used (deadly for those level 4s casting on 6+ dice), or one that turns a wizard into a toad.

Re: Yes, I was bored. 2000pts by the rumoured 8th ed rules.

Sorceress chosen lore will most likely *not* be Dark Magic as I have a feeling it will be rather inferior to the new rulebook lores. Fire will be simple and straigthforward and Metal will be very situational (pretty useless against most elves, daemons, or ogres). I'm curious about Shadow and Death....

Find the points for a musician on the xbows.

muscian grants "swift reform" which means they can shoot after a reform if they pass a leadership test. Alot easier than having to wheel left or right now that turn to face has gone.
