Re: Bases question

Definitely an old thread, but I found this spreadsheet on TGA to be useful;

60x35 if you don't want to open the page. All man/human sized cavalry fits nicely on it.

Re: Darkprincess' Random Creativeness Thread

Hey DP; I haven't really been around much for the last few years, nice to see some familiar names when I do though. Cool job on the spine, reminds me of Tyranid spires. I might use this for some objective markers, seems pretty easy and cheap. Thanks, appreciate the nice write up too! *edit* nevermin...

Re: Poll: What brought you to the hobby?

Walked into a video gaming store who happened to have a Warhammer night with a big turn out. Looked like every person playing was having an absolute blast. I looked at the rack and picked out Dark Elf 4th ed, flipped through and bought it and some Witch Elves with the Cauldron that night. Ended up w...

Re: About points..

Why you didn't use the point system for 8th instead? It's not a question of friendly game or not, even my 6yo son would complain if I give him 30 warrior of chaos and I take 30 skaven, that's not fun, that's a game unplayable. It's not really Warhammer so we didn't want to use Warhammer rules. We f...

Re: About points..

No points in this version, they may or may not put them in with the next update. Right now, it's up to the players - a great equilibrium. My friends and I will be using wounds to balance out the sides. Beer and pretzels, man.

I think the Warhammer IP is about to be overhauled. Bringing in all kinds of new writers, supposed to be a Chaos and also Malekith ET kinda books. I'd like to see CoS come back. I could see Chaos coming together again under a single book. They could do it with others; do away with allies and instead...

Re: Be prepared

Similar issue, most of the friends I used to game with have moved away and the one that remains always has something else on the go.

Re: Base size for our Dark Pegasus?

Definitely mount it on the base it came on, but if it's on a 40x40 base it shouldn't be too much for you to use a bit of Blu-tac and fix it atop a 50x50 base. I'd do the same if I were going to a tournament. Definitely check with the TO if unsure.

Re: Giant 40k/WFB Rumor dump - next WH edition

There have been major false rumors in the past, so I'm not going to worry/prepare until I actually see it. Same here. I stopped putting any stock into rumors years ago. So much bunk and wishlisting goes into them. GW zipped up after the last WoC book (7th) and LZ was basically entirely leaked 2 wee...

I've pretty much always taken then in an infantry heavy army (including past editions, where they weren't so great but fit well with the theme of the list). This edition has improved them quite a lot. It's often a decision between them, and CoK for me. Matter of preference (and/or nerdhammering I gu...

Re: Coop's Crimson Dark Elves

They look cool, I really like the rxbs/Darkshards. The Corsairs make me think of the old VC Blood Dragons. :)
I'm not a fan of drow skin, this is not to say that I think they look bad but wonder if a wash would improve it. I like your overall theme though!

It's crazy how much of a panic this caused among many forums. Things are always mirrored somewhere on the internets, luckily many of us are packrats with digital stuff.

Hey Ras, long time no see! Accidentally clicked submit early. I wondered this myself, but I think the game has changed so much that it rewards and encourages large units so I'm not sure if MSU is even "viable". Might depend on your meta pool. That is a good link, thanks for posting that Ca...

Re: Can playing Dark Elves turn us EVIL?!

Is this the 1980s, and the topic is violence in correlation to Dungeons and Dragons players? Or video games in the early 90s? Same old nonsensical garbage that has been disproven countless times. There must always be a scapegoat, I guess.

Ah, that's too bad. Looks like it could have been great! Unfortunately, GW has a habit of clamping down on IP even if it's all all but abandoned by them.

Re: [FAQ] Can an Assassin deploy 'hidden' in scouting Shades

The way I look at it, the assassin no longer has scout *grumble, grumble* so he can be hidden with them if they are deployed as normal, but not when they are scouting. I think it was an indirect nerf to him to exclude scout from his profile. Slightly OT, I can't believe we still don't have a FAQ yet...

Re: Power of Darkness

Definitely not pointless. I normally put a sorceress in a unit of warriors to stab for more power dice anyway, so it's not really a bad side effect to get S4 elves.

You could always take Doombolt if you don't like PoD.

I've considered taking them, but normally opt to use the Sacrificial Dagger.

I'd be likely to take one in a magic-heavy list though would be hard pressed to take it over a...
