Re: Oh look! High elves

Rumor is they are getting a new War Machine... possibly a Flame Cannon of some sort... But we have those already. They are called dragons. :P I do agree that the bolt throwers are a little pricey for what they cost and the real-estate they take up in deployment. Either some sort of buff or point re...

Re: Oh look! High elves

Either cannonballs kill 1 or 2 guys, x2 cannons, or I get nailed by shot. Yes, he'll need 6s to hit, but that never seems like a problem for him :P I always seem to lose four or five warriors per cannon. And I know all about BS4 being awesome and fun. I usually run around with a few blocks of seagua...

Re: Oh look! High elves

Thanks! We usually go by random terrain rules in the book, but even if we get an absolutely bonkers roll for terrain he'll just put a hill or two in the deployments and stack whatever else he gets in the corners of the map... I've got two castle turrets that we also use for the watchtower mission. T...

Re: Oh look! High elves

I always want to have a maximum amount of terrain on the field, but my sworn enemy (actually a good friend of mine... plays Orcs and Goblins, Skaven, and Gunline... I mean Empire.) always wants the least amount of terrain possible. Even then, it is pretty hard to hide a dragon behind anything but a ...

Re: Oh look! High elves

I'll be happy with Silver Helms back as core. I really don't like having nothing in core with a strength higher than 3. Mage buffs sound good to me. I'm tired of having my Archmages outclassed by goblin minimages with their sneaky stealing and magic mushrooms. I'll be happy to see ASF go though. I f...

Re: New to Warhammer, Island of blood

If you're thinking about starting up High Elves, I'd say sell the Swordmasters and get a bunch of Phoenix Guard. I've been fielding a 40 elf block of these guys most games and they never disappoint. Swordmasters, although they carry great weapons, don't have all that much more killing potential when...

Re: Rating the Dark Eldar Elites

Getting De for a flier is about the last thing I'd do. Thx to forgeworld, ... Yeah, that's if you're allowed to use them. :/ I've played a more than a few people that think Forgeworld is no bueno. I personally think they are the WAC types. I'm always up for new stuff as long as it adds to the game....

Re: fortification trouble

My group house-ruled this a while ago. Forts deploy after terrain but before armies. This differs from 'deploying with the rest of the force' because the player with first deployment knows where the other player's fort is going to be before he or she deploys and not after.

Re: Dropping the Fire dragon bomb.

I hear that a lot, but the guys I regularly play with have a penchant for making nearly all their saves. SCs are definitely not worth it when I'm playing anything but space marines, but they seem to be more effective for me than anything else I take against them.

Re: ADL question

I play against a chaos player who nearly always takes lots of marines and a few helldrakes. I've taken to sitting on a lascannon bastion with Dark Reapers recently. BS5 on the lascannon seems to work fine for me. I can basically shoot anything on the board with it. I usually put fast shot on him to ...

I think Incubi look the coolest, but I've only ever taken DE as allies to get a flyer. :P

Re: How do you favour with the dice gods?

:P I've thought of that too, but I love the basilisk model far too much to mutilate it like that. I saw a cool conversion using a chimera and a mortar team for the smallest mortar tank. As far as rules go, I should probably go back and reread the entire book and FAQs now that I've got some experienc...

Re: How do you favour with the dice gods?

Agreed, though for those not in the know I'll elaborate. For the first situation, just about everything I've read is illegal in game. First off, Eldar can't take telekinesis. The only things they can have is telepathy and divination, other than the codex powers. Second, when you choose to roll for ...

Re: New Player Needs Help With Eldar Army

Being blast templates, they don't need high ballistic skill. If you're shooting at an averagely spaced unit you can get five or six hits on one direct hit. One should get two direct hits or more every round. Six kraks, even at BS3, should still kill any light vehicles easily. Guide obviously helps, ...

Re: New Player Needs Help With Eldar Army

War Walkers with Scatter Lasers are good, but I prefer EMLs on them. SLs put out 24 shots, but I've had upwards of 30 hits on Tyranid and Ork horde units per round. The EML'd War Walkers regularly waste tanks too. They are also passable against bunched up power armor. The longer range on the EMLs he...
