  • Witchcraft soley because it has 2 spells that can shut down shooting. And it has the movement spells to rush up aginst shooting lists that try to deploy far away. Obvioulsy this also has some benefit against armies that don't shoot because you can redeploy against bad unit matchups, and you can get charges first which really helps against charge dependant armies like KoE and Ogres. If Heavy shooting wasn't so apparent in various meta's then I would have to chose Occultism. It synergizes well wit…

  • Quote from berti: “Quote: “I also heard DH will be losing their devastating charge rule in Sturdy, and most players agree with it. Maybe replaced with something else. ” I realy hope it will be replaced with battle focus. I think it is a way stronger rule, that will come into play a lot in DH army. Way more often than current +1 st on charge. ” Check out the dwarf holds hombrew books. Has alot of good changes. Its got my vote for tge new book. Its new sturdy rule fits dwarves very well.

    you can get that champ in plastic as well for easy conversion.

  • Quote from elendor_f: “I am fairly certain they do not say that you have to "dance around guerrilla style more than any other army". They say that you have to choose your combats and control space on the board because mistakes are very punishing (more than for other armies) for an army made of fragile expensive models. ” Guerilla is pretty much the catch all term for it. From wikipediea: Guerrilla warfare is a form of irregular warfare in which a small group of combatants, such as paramilitary p…

  • I've taken the plung into Infernal Dwarves. Got my Norba and Mom Miniatures on the way. In the mean time I had about 20 Russian Alternative models from a while back to paint. Russian Alternative Infernal Dwarf. I started with the red/gold paint scheme but knew quickly that I didn't like it. I really like the Dark Iron Dwarf scheme from World of Warcraft but the Russian Alternative miniatures have a bit of a different aesthetic. I figured that Infernal Dwarf culture is based around riches, more s…

  • Instead of Banner of Gar Daecoes, I find +1 speed banner is much better for even more movement! Gar Daecos still decent though. Honestly with DE, the banners are fairly balanced. You can kinda take whatever you prefer and change your playstyle/list accordingly.

  • Quote from Nemeroth: “All our elite infantry have their problems. The common one being how incredibly easy they are to shoot off. Dancers will fight to the last woman and hold up anything, especially with a Divination master putting guiding light on them every turn. I found a cult BSB good as KI on the great weapons is a lot better on S5+. ” ya, if I were to take a big unit of Dancer's I'd probably take Divination Master. Obviously scrying makes them more tanky, guiding light makes them tank, an…

  • Quote from LegioIgnatum: “Unlike the elves the ID and DH cannot share all of the encompassing racial rules. All elves have some assortment of different unit types (monsters, mounts, cav, chariots, monstrous cav) that cater to different battlefield rules allowing infantry to have common special attributes, while DH is basically infantry + flying chariots + warmachines compared to ID having access to almost all unit types in the game. Due to DH being so limited in terms of unit choices (warmachine…

  • I want to clarify another reason why I take judges over everything else. And its not because they are OP. They are quite balnced in the Dread Elf army. ...in any other army they would be OP. 1st reason - glass cannon. Most elf units are actually a Glass Balista. Many enemy characters that are 400-600 points can dish out reliable wounds on par or better than DE characters. Many enemy units can do similiar wound output when they add in a few synergies. Empire orders + hatred, Vermin Swarm rank stu…

  • Quote from matrim: “On a seperate note @DanT why is your experience in a single tournament so important compared to anyone else's?? Why is it so significant for the project? I'm sure every one in that tournament were better players than I am but when was the last time England won ETC? why do the project shun people like @Furion when they critique the army and say it's statisticaly insignificant but jump on positive feedback? ” I think it's just because DanT made a thread about it detailing his a…

  • Tracer shot sounds great. Infernal Dwarves gunnery team flamethrower has a secondary fire option that grants flamable. Check that out for balance purposes. Giving +1 to hit is pretty good but as long as it doesn't stack with engineer then that's ok. And it still works great with catapult, organ gun, and gives a reason to take the balistas. Sure the cannon is expensive, the tracer shot is also extra points. But cannon's don't just bring killing power to the table, they give zoning.

  • Quote from Clockwork: “Judges vs Dancers. If you could only take one infantry block which would it be and why? I’ve been having mixed success lately with Dancers but there has been talk recently of Judges putting the Dread back in Dread Elves. 27 plus Strider banner is only 20 points more than 28 Dancers plus Daecos I’ve been running. ” I've been using both in various loadouts. If I had to chose one it would be Judges. 24+ block with whatever banner suits your needs in every list gives you such …

    Good thing i saw this. I was considering ordering a couple things but I abhor bad business practices so can't ethically support it. Their models look great but there is enough competition to find stuff elsewhere.

  • Quote from Zambro: “30 points left in menagerie, so manticore is out of the question. I'm trying to balance survivability (res 5, 2+ 4++(vsS5))) with killing power (impact hits, S6 on the charge, raptor attacks) with speed. I get 2 out of 3 on the chariot. With a Raptor, I lose killing power, have moderate survivability, and i'm able to march. With a horse, I lose killing power and survivability, and gain speed. With the peg, moderate survivability, lose killing power and gain speed. I'll give t…

  • Quote from WhammeWhamme: “The Spear shows that individual items (and, presumably, honours/kindreds/etc) can make foot Elves viable. Given that, there's not really any reason to creep eliteness; just create items (etc) that are foot-only that have appropriate effects and cost them right. At FAB time, of course. ” I feel that fixing problems that unit entries have with Items is the wrong way to design the game. Items should add to the game parts, not make them fundamental. Otherwise we just have a…

  • Quote from My_Kin: “One thought that occurred to me, is the character options that are being taken generally fulfill multiple roles. In the past we've argued for more raw power from our characters or for them to be force multipliers (which has been mostly unsuccessful), but perhaps this is what they should be, toolboxes that excel in different phases? I'd still love Elf combat character to get +1A so they weren't competing with their own troops so much, but I think flexibility might be the way f…

  • Quote from Zambro: “Dislike the chariot BSB. Not fast enough to keep up / catch up with the Hydras so the 12" beast master was lost out on a few times. Not sure how else to run him? ” Chariot BSB needs to have Yema to be able to keep up. If you want beastmaster you gotta put him on Manticore, Pegasus or raptor. As manticore you can put the Talisman of shielding on him for a 5+ aegis. And in a list with dragon and 2 Hydra's you can just hide behind them.

  • Quote from Traumdieb: “To be fair it would be a bad sign if they would work dwarf only because ID is more. Kadims are fine. Put them on the shelf lately because Taurukhs annointed are better fitting for the tasks I have for them after starting to use blunderbusses which now kill stuff with no amour. ” Ya Dwarf only Infernal Dwarfs shouldn't be a competitive option as that's just not what the army is about. But like everything else in T9A it should be somewhat decent. As long as the racial specia…
