    Quote from ahk3927: “You and I are out-numbered here. ” Perhaps there is a reason for that. BH are far from the weakest army. At worst they are in the middle of the pack. In fact, I am pretty sure they are in the middle. Are they easy to play? No; they are an army that wins in the movement phase, which is the most skill-intensive part of the game. Do they have the tools to win? Absolutely. Quote from clorens: “with a one alone totem you dont make anything ,you need a totem beaber for 80p and the…

    Quote from clorens: “80p for totems is not cheaper and the longhorns not are a lot of expensive than sword master. i pay happy more cost for something like a mamoth or damed court ” 15 points is though. If you know your list struggles against elven/high agility elites, you buy the Black Wing Totem. Longhorns are very versatile, and not expensive at all. You get a very good all-rounder unit that can have upgrades to make it better in different areas. 80 points for the big totem is more a utility …

    And they pay points for it. The Totems are cheap because they are more unreliable, and require more careful use and planning of your magic phase. But you still don't seem to get it that Longhorns, generally should not be beating Swordmasters... because the Swordmasters pay a lot to be stronger in the offense and weaker in defense.

    Daemons have a 5++ that does not get negated by anything the Swordmasters can do. Mammoths make the Swordmasters slower, exposing their weak defenses. And Grave Guard literally get back up again if killed. Some units are not designed to beat others. Just ramming Longhorns into Swordmasters with no help shouldn't produce a win. Otherwise they would be insane due to being harder to kill in range and having higher numbers of models for the same total cost. But, you know what does make Longhorns bea…

    Quote from clorens: “sword master destroy list of longhorns and new daemons with sucubos destroy minos units. 46 ungors with spears and wildh herd better than wildhorns ” Sword Masters are one of THE most offensively geared units in the game. Of course Longhorns can't go toe-to-toe with them! Longhorns are tougher, so they survive ranged attacks better. You are comparing Longhorns to the gold-standard of pure combat damage (which they trade for awful defense). Stop and think for a minute.

  • Quote from Peacemaker: “Quote from Hotelalex87: “+1 Armor Penetration for flintlock Axe in close kombat ” Could be a decent upgrade option, which goes along with my idea that infernal weapons be an upgrade for mundane weapons.Flintlock axe can be upgraded to an Infernal Flintlock Axe that gives an extra +1 AP in melee. I'd very much prefer it to be an upgrade rather than automatic as it leads to better listbuilding. ” Actually it's a return to how the weapon used to work in 1.3 and earlier. It u…

    Quote from Herminard: “Ambush is fairly solid vs Battle Lines, and especially if the rest of the list plays pick off/guerilla. Battle Lines are not really as prevalent in the game as their percentage of the army books and rulebook would lead you to percieve, though. ” I used the term just to mean my opponents army. Not the specific deployment type or anything else. I have used them against people deploying in various different ways (eventually trying to get weird to avoid my blocks).

  • Kadims used to be one of the best units in the book, and I don't think they are useless by any stretch. But they do need much more careful play and the right targets. A lot of people probably still hype them up like they are still in their golden era. Which would cause disappointment to find that they are not the insane blenders people make them out to be.

    I mean... I have a bit of an odd meta. But I used BH with two 25-strong Ambushing Wildhorn blocks in all my lists; and for about a year I had a single loss to my name. I kitted them out for maximum damage and used them to wreck havoc with my opponents battle-line. Then the rest of my army picked off the stragglers as they tried to contain the threat. So somebody was using them. They had a purpose, and they were good at it.

  • I agree with quite a lot of this. The train is great. Even if you whiff and miss a lot, people are terrified of it. And if they are not, they often get too close and get blasted. I played an event recently and had both happen. I agree with the Citadel Guard hitting stuff. They don't. Unless you roll way above average, they hit about 2/3 times a turn and only do about 1 wound at most. Scoring and high armour is all I have found useful in them. (and the former might be because they are small enoug…

    [QS] [Gallery Contest] [Infernal Dwarves] 11th of April Another heads up people! The quickstarter team is looking for pictures of Infernal Dwarves in the form of a contest. Specifically Taurukh, Citadel Guard, Hobgoblins and a Prophet. Full details in the thread.

  • I will set up a notification in the ID general thread. Should turn some heads... That is while I ready my own forces for picture-taking :P. (Quick question. Would it be preferable for the Citadel Guard and Hobgoblins to be equipped with their respective ranged options or not?)

  • If any tickets are still wandering around, sign me up (Joe Parmenter). I will pay as soon as I can.

    Alright folks, here we go. This might just be my longest post here, so bare with (and I will use spoiler tags to help make it shorter), and there shall be a reward at the end...
