I might considering dropping the Corsairs but I need the Anti-magic hence the Ring of Hotek. Unless there is a better anti-magic option for a 1000 points list? Agrred for the spearman, I need an Anvil. Master on Steed is definately more fragile. IMO for smaller games, instead of trying to squeeze in...

A 1000 points Newbie tournament (Considering I've not taken part in any tournaments) but I expect lots of iffy stuff so I would like to put Dark Elves in the Limelight. I heard I am the only...

On the contrary, in the current edition I always put an Assassin in my unit of Executioners to try and clear off the first rank of enemy units with his ASF rule before my Executioners get to strike back unmolested. But come to think of the hypothesized new rules, I think there will be an added rule ...

Defeats the purpose of being Assassins with the Hidden rule isn't it if your opponent knew all your unit contains an assasin. It is stated in the rulebook.

Most people forget Witchbrew... They really help out with the combat resolution. I fought this Unit of Dwarves with my Witchelves supported by a Harpy Flank. He used some effy rune to give him double unit strength (Example, unit strength 20 becomes 40). Unfortunately, because of Witchbrew and flank,...

The best way of explaining it is as follows: Before any blows are struck, work out which models can attack. Only these models can ever have a chance of attacking this round. If they are alive at their initiative step they can attack any unit they were in btb with at the beginning of the phase , reg...

Close-combat Retaliation possible?

Scenario 1) Enemy unit (5 per rank) charges my unit of Exectioners. Charge was successful. Executioners and enemy unit engage in Close-combat. 2) I revealed my Assasin in the unit of Executioners. Assasin has ASF special rule so he strikes first despite the unit of executioners being charged. Assass...

Dalamar is right. Also, if your opponent pursues further than you, he kills your unit immediately, regardless of what happens later his pursuit. That's because its not that you run 8" and then he runs 10" and catches you, you run simultaneously: he covers 10" in the time that you wou...

Counter Attack? (Baiting)

I had recently played a few games with my new 1000 points Khanite Army featuring Executioners and WitchElves. Like asa most Druchii players have mentioned, these Specials are excellent if they charge (to strike first) and their light amour makes them vulnerable to even enemy firepower. Considering i...

Persue and chased away by Terror?

My unit broke and ran, I rolled 2D6 and got a 8".

His unit persue (rolled 10") and at 7", it got within 6"of a terror causing unit (My cauldron of blood), can I force him to roll Terror test and if he breaks, will he still successfully run down my unit?

The rule allows you to swap a hand weapon for a hand crossbow. You can use the same option twice. It's like giving your heroes two handbows. You don't buy a handbow twice, there's a separate option for dual handbows. So I can use the same option twice to give each Corsair 2 Handbows shooting 4 shot...

Corsairs (Dual Handbow Legal?)

As the thread title suggest, is it legal to give all my Corsairs dual Handbow? According to the Codex, under the Black Ark Corsairs entry, it simply states. Weapons: Swap Hand Weapon for Handbow. Since Corsairs have Two Hand Weapons, they can swap BOTH hand weapon for Handbows right? That means my C...

Instead of Purple, I choose Red. After all Red cloth with Gold amour also gives a royal feel to your army.

Not forgetting, my Witch Elves wearing Red Thongs and Bra. :D More eye catching then Purple definitely.

Just curious, why is red hard to paint with?
