    Zambro - - Battle Reports

    Post

    I have a few games worth of pictures that I want to write up. I'm using my majority mounted DE list (which I'm finding tonnes of fun to play!). The first game features @destroyem and his UD. My list: (Hidden Content) I don't have the list, but the sentiment was 2 casters (master cosmo, adept evo), character on chariot with 5 chariots, 2x5 horses, 30 archers, 10 archers, 20 poison paired weapon elites, 20 skellies, collosus, battle sphinx, catapult and casket. We get King of the Hill and Frontlin…

    Oh wow... That's massive! It's 170mm long, and 60 wide. But that's probably tip of the Raptor's nose to the end of the whip. Should be able to get the wheels and Raptor's legs on a chariot base and just deal with the overhang.

    I'll echo the sentiment's about the Raging Heroes' Manticore being a pain to put together. I used plenty of GS. I even broke one of the main body parts trying to straighten it out to get a better fit. The break is unnoticable 90% of the time, but picking it up and looking underneath you can see it. I'd say you want to be an intermediate modeller (or at least have some experience with non-GW models) to feel comfortable sorting it out. There are so many new Raging Hero models I've not seen before.…

  • I played Guiem ( @Monxyyy ) today in the cup final. No point in making a battle report. He smashed me in 3 turns. BSB Altar and General dead in turn 2. All 3 blocks dead in his turn 3. Admittedly I thought my General did terribly (only 2 wounds on a unit of 3 Crushers on the charge!). And Guiem got lucky with 6 shots at S6 hand of heaven into my BSB followed by S7 shots from hand of heaven the next turn... Well done on the win!

  • Cup Semi Final #1 - Drew vs Gareth - DE vs HbE The lists: Mine (Hidden Content) Gareth's (Hidden Content) My pre game thoughts: F*ck. So many bodies. So many bodies that fight before I do. I don't really have a shot at this. I could (maybe) take on 3 bricks. But 3 bricks of elites AND 2 bricks of core spears... not a chance. The only silver lining is that I out shoot him. All 15 Raiders and 2 Bolt Throwers. Not really enough to do big damage. Oh, and he has 9 spells - one of which is Unerring St…

  • Quote from Peacemaker: “ Quote from Zambro: “What would it take for you to not play with the Altar? ” a 4+ aegis save on the Manticore.+1 Attack on captain and Prince so they are viable to be taken on foot. This is pretty much the core reasons Alter is taken over the other options. As least as far as my experience, my batrep watching, and my theory hammer has deduced. ” Pendant of Disdain for Manticore. Yes only S5 or more, but I've had excellent results with it. Just stay away from units with m…

  • What would it take for you to not play with the Altar? I'm just thinking out loud, based on @Noir's post about dropping points on other units if the Altar gets an increase in points. Even if blades and corsairs were cheaper, I'd still want the Altar for it's buff to make these units better. So it'll still work out as the same cost if I take both at their changed points. The Altar is such a good force multiplier for our army. And I dare say it's the backbone for a standard inf/cav list. Maybe ins…

    I get Christmas and Easter off (2 weeks each). A weekend or two here and there. And that's about it. I'll probably get a game in around Christmas time.

  • Who said Dread Legionnaires were cool? I use the GameZone DE spearmen for mine - and those models are the coolest thing about them.

    I've been accepted to Sandhurst for Officer training. So no more 2-3 games a week; and hello 5am runs! It is a good reason to leave. But I'm not sure I've fully realised the impact of putting everything on hold for a year.

    It's been absolute minimal progress in the past few months. A layer or two on a few works in progresses. A few months ago, I found out I'll be leaving in early September, I've had almost no motivation to paint since then (although I am getting as many games in as possible!). I've actually just boxed up and transferred all my stuff into storage boxes. The next time I'll be able to get it all back out will be this time next year. I'll come back to GOLD and (hopefully) a new DE book!! I'm sure I'll…

  • His other commitments include 40k and AoS. Feel free to send hate mail his way.

  • Are we discussing results here, or elsewhere? 4 of the 5 things I voted for as efficient are in the top 5. As expected. I am surprised to see Dread Legionnaires voted for as efficient (8th on the list, at time of writing). I almost put a vote their way. But thinking about it, I'd say there fine as they are. It's the rest of the core choices being inefficient that makes DL look efficient. It's a bit sad to think that the top 10 things on the efficient list will probably take some sort of price hi…

  • Here is the second game of Division 1. Myself (Drew) vs. James (@'rusty13'). DE vs. WDG. Our table. Capture the Flags and Refused Flank. 966492_sm-.jpg My thoughts going in: I'll be fine. WDG are my favourite match up. They're very popular in the UK scene, and in our club, even. So I've played them multiple times before - they might even be my most played against race. I know what their units do, and how my units do vs them. I've got the tools to take James' list apart. I chose his 3 elite scori…

    The medusa's bound spell is great. -1off/def/agi is amazing against elves. Not to mention fighting against other WS5 units. It's essentially +1 to hit. And it can let us fight at the same time / before charging units. Very helpful, especially as you can cast it multiple times. Oh and +1 move on the attribute is just the cherry on top. Sure, it doesn't benefit from how bound spells work. It's a bit crap that it can be stopped on a 4. But still forces opponent to make choices and gives you an extr…

  • Below are my lists, based on my own perceptions and thought processes about list building. I've run every unit in the book multiple times, so the not used category (for me) is the stuff I don't really give much consideration to when writing lists. Likewise, the Autoincludes don't always make it into a list, but they probably do. I suppose I've interpreted the question as being asked to rank in order the likelihood of taking a given unit/item. Anyway... Items: Not used Death's Kiss Terrifying Vis…

  • Does anyone know who Adam Watts is? The point costs on his list are wrong. His Dread Legionnaire unit should be 495, not 525. The Corsairs are 400 points, not 275. And Both Dread Judge units are 376 not 396. Which makes his total 4452 (the current total is 4397). Not sure what he wants to do to rectify it, but I'd recommend 1 extra body to each Dread Judge unit to round the list out to 4500 exactly.

    The way I see it (in my non-expert opinion), every army has a core "bow unit". That's generally cheap, hit on 4/5s at S3 and is good for clearing chaff and holding an objective (and anything else is a bonus). Auxiliaries are our "bow unit". Except they're lower down on the comparison to other army's bow units because we're 24" and hitting on 5/6s most of the time. I feel that aim 3+ is the best option for us, and crucially, most realistic. QTF would be great. As would range increases/S increases…

    Quote from WAARGHammer: “I would like to see something where the RA's can shoot at an enemy that is being charged (reverse of fire support when being charged like high elves) and then add in a randomness type thing where after you roll hits, the 1's hit your unit and the rest hit the charged unit. Example: Tower Guard declare charge against unit, unit declares hold as reaction, select ONE unit of RA's to shoot into said unit before being charged (maybe set a max unit size of 12 for allowed to sh…
