Re: Butcher 3 is coming :D

I've played against him. He's the ultimate super solo. In one turn he took out 5 bastions and a reckoner from 16 inches out. He charged, energized, impending doom, flashing blade, feat, flashing blade, flashing blade, charge attack against the reckoner = 5 dead bastions and a reckoner, and sitting o...

Re: Buffing Menoth

The Book is amazing for two main reasons - 1) the no-knockdown/stationary effect encompasses the entire army. Nothing that is FF can be knocked down while in it's command area, which is a hefty 10 inches. Placing him directly in the middle of the forces gives you a 20 inch bubble of protection from ...

Re: Best Beast/Jack

even taking out the extremely cheap point cost, the Reckoner is my favorite jack. W/ out the choir, vassal or caster buffs - 10" threat range, def 12 against range, reduces living models by -2 MAT w/in 2 ", with 3 foc gets 4 attacks on a charge, a 20" threatening boostable gun that reduces def by 2 ...

Re: Style over substance?

What amazes me is that while players poo-poo all over things as "sucking", more and more unconventional lists that use less popular models are winning major tournament events. Then that winning list is seen all over the place and heralded as the best. It's the player, not the model, more then anythi...

Re: The warmahordes general discussion

I don't believe that either Focus or Fury is better. Lets take 2 games I had yesterday for example. In one, it took a Scythean a charge turn, the following turn, Spiny Growth damage and Warspear support to kill a single Juggernaut, while in an earlier game a Crusader with Battle Hymn took Megalith ...

House guard are great, but reform from the UA is what makes them awesome. You'll get use out of a full unit and the UA, so staring w/ a min unit isn't bad.

Re: Menoth list idea

You're going from a battle box game to 75 points? That's an insane jump. If you play 40k its like playing a bunch of 500 pt games, and then playing a Apoc game. You might want to try a few 35 point games first. That said, the stuff you want to buy will see use as it's all good stuff w/in the army (a...

Re: Tier lists

They aren't necessarily over-powered, so don't feel bad about using them. The bonuses are quite reasonable, if a little weak. additionally, the use of tiers come at the expense of not being able to use other army models/units/character warnouns. So there's a trade off. Some tiers are better then ot...

no... you should get assault kommandos and kosite woodsmen. They're awesome. You're opponents will tremble in fear.

Re: Looking to get into Warmachine

if you're planning on the 2 player box, and another caster, get the Butcher. Please don't over look learning Sorcha though (it's her prime version). She's a great caster and can really be powerful at low levels.

welcome to the best game out there!

Re: styles of play for Menoth

With what you have, try running the deliverers, the zealots, repenter, vanquisher and redeemer w/ pKreoss. The Temple Flame guard don't really synergize well w/ him b/c one of his strongest aspects is that all enemy models in his control area are at defense 5 during his feat turn. The more fire powe...

Re: Khador lot, worth it?

They still sell winter guard don't they? That's all that matters. yes what he means is finding them in 2 man blisters to take the unit from a minimum unit (6 models) to a max unit (10 models) as they are now sold in 10 (or 14 w/ rocketeers?) man units only. Also, if the price is good and that what ...
