Yeah, I got the DE noble with helmet when it came out some months ago (probably about a year now that I think of it). No use for a character on foot, but it makes for an awesome Malekith on foot model (for use on display or in his chariot) by replacing one of the hands with a Necron Lord claw bit.

How is the Disciple of Khaine? as it is a kind of priest (semi-warrior and caster) is it reliable in close combat AND in blood powers? It's okay. Really, the DPS side is a secondary feature - more like a handicap that you need to make do with because it powers your heals. Don't pick the DoK thinkin...

@ Ansob. I'm on that sever, I've got a black orc called Ruck, I'll give you a shout at some point. So... we're in the same county and on the same server. Coincidence? I think not. Disciple of Khaine 8, by the way. I doubt you'll want to party up with me that much given your rank, but oh, well.

Still Divine magic is the proccess of calling on a deity to essentialy perform a spell using the priest, filltering the magic through him/her. This is opposed to the magic used by wizerds in that whilst a mage will fashion the spell themself a preist will ask the god to create the spell and then im...

Juggernaught. Pretty much unstoppable once he gets going, a helmet to block psychic attacks, physical invulnerability, and strong enough to make the Hulk* look like your grandma. Nuff said.

Why do so many people take such small units, i.e. 5 strong cavalry regiments, and 10 on foot? Big blocks are so much safer to use, if they get shot less likely to succumb to panic due to numbers, you get +2 on rank bonus, better chance of outnumbering etc. You're new around here, aren't you?

Thunder hammers were always meant to be incredibly individualised weapons, anyway - a bit like the "magic" swords of our legends. Technically, so are power swords, but they're still fairly common - thunder hammers are ancient and holy relics.

In either version, they are used for their viscouseness, and not their intelect (which is some where inbetween a rock and a potato, and the rock is still smarter.) Except for Spite, the runt Malus Darkblade rides upon, they are about as smart as a rock (and the Rockis aurguably smarter) That's inco...

Despite appearances, Kroot are not a CC unit. They are a skirmishing shooty unit.

The real pain is characters counting against the number of mounted units. Otherwise, 3*DR, 2*CoK, 3*harpies, a block of spears, one or two units of MSU corsairs, a couple of chariots, a hydra, a scroll caddie and a couple of nobles on DR, and you'd be good to go. As it is, the rest still makes for a...

And by tradition, Malekith got rejected by the elven gods and went against tradition by claiming rightfull rulership based on ancestry. Wrong.

The dark riders are fine; they just need to be repackaged with new horses.

No, the models that really need a change are the warriors - some of the fugliest models in the whole of WFB. They need non-silly helmets and to do out with the clown shoes.
