  • Quote from Happy Aspid: “Never build list around FO, and never seen other people build it around FO either. If anything FO is the only monster that don't rely on synergy with rest of the army. FDE is the opposite - too expensive and fragile to go without babysitting. Even alone and isolated - FO still a great threat to everything. FDE - one wrong move, or not very successful round of combat - and Poof! - you just lost >450p model without doing anything usefull with it. ” Mind that nearly all FO …

  • Quote from Phosphorus: “Interessting...but if that is true (to some extent...what happened exactly? Why is UD now Top and HE Flop ?Were are the "big" changes in the certain army lists which made the difference? And HE were indeed on the Top in 8th . ed.? ” In the case of HE? The army attempts to be a Jack of All Trades army, but with elite troops with ineffectual stats and crazy high prices. They shone as a top dog for a short while, with access to some real good item synergies, which were then …

  • Alchemy is also a great combo with the FO, with two spells that lower the enemy armor, if they have some. Glory of Gold on FO still surprises a lot of people who have yet to internalize that Armor Piercing is now a stat. Alchemy is good for Exile-Irredeemable lists in general, providing Armor to Forsworn, Flammable for Portent and armor penetration for the poor low-AP dudes.

    Quote from Dopey: “A daemon symbtiote has access to both manifestations and special equipment. It’s also somewhat an exalted herald-lite. Interesting thing. ” The background implications are a big part of why it's in the book. The TRUE combination of mortal and daemonic, with the strengths of both and weaknesses of neither, a perfect being. Perhaps the most dangerous endgame of a Cult coming to true power is the creation of an army of such things. Not from peasants and heralds, but from heroes a…

    Daemon unit costs 400p, you need to use 2 tokens to summon it. It costs 450, you need 3 tokens. That's why it's an odd number to have, to actually make summoning useful.

  • Sometimes those toxic hits are scary. As my chariot sorcerer in the ETC found out, the hard way.

  • Well, I mean, yes, obviously they are. All the GW models are. That doesn't make it any less weirder to have them side by side with a human miniature and having LARGER proportions even when taking into account them being tuned up size-wise.

  • I was quite impressed by the quality of the skeletons after seeing them on the table, they actually looked, and were sized like, human skeletons within the 28mm size, and felt quite sturdy despite being so thin-limbed. Especially the GW skeletons in the 28mm range look like their original bodies came from superhuman giants or had heads the size of basketballs, so both the Lubart skellies and TMS skellies are quite lovely to behold.

    Who's defending what here? Barking up the wrong tree, man. This ain't some Borg monolith where everyone has the same opinion on things, you of all people should know that whatnot with your signature in plain sight right there.

    Indeed, the quest for the ultimate balance would be a pointless quest, allowing change to keep things fresh is where it's at. Change is good, is my opinion on things.

  • Last week has been quite the nightmare, falling ill and then immediately after recovering getting some long shifts, but soon enough I'll be able to get back to writing and doing stuff here. In the meantime, a picture of my Doomlord, Argus, commissioned from Dm3_inks while at the ETC (Check out his facebook here: facebook.com/Dm3_inks-1466088730175195/) 5y7vDJO.png

  • Hmm, challenge accepted. Lets see if I even manage to scrounge up the time to play in a tourney before the update, hah.

    People raised hell about Yannics lego army and called to get him banned from the ETC for it, and it actually had traction. How well do you think literal match fixing will be received? And it's not even that I'm particularly troubled by, it's the admittance to it, when you could just as well say you're sick and can't play or something, and save yourself the trouble.

    Quote from Orion: “In the team event I only played 4 games since I forfeited the last two to help Team Spain in the decisive rounds vs Poland and Germany ” Okay, I'm curious - WHY would you publicly admit this?

    Because it wasn't actually fun.

  • @Adaephon_Delat "Nobody expects the Inquisition:0-1 per army. All model parts in the unit gain Vanguard" Well, there's a familiar rule right there...

  • If you have an unit that relies on doing a lot of wounds, and can get it re-rolls to wound, getting them those re-rolls is ALWAYS good.

  • Quote from Happy Aspid: “Funny thing comes when your opponent kills last forsworn, but fails to break Doomlord. Suddenly your damage become insane, while opponent realises what a mistake he did. ” Oh lord, that's an amazing feeling when it happens. Had a match where the Doomlord ended up alone in a fight with a block of those Dread Elf gals with Poison, and raptor chariots on both flanks, completely blocking anyone from interfering and killed them all in three rounds. none-of-you-seem-to-underst…

    I'm more surprised by the absence of obsidian rock, quite a nice thing to have when there's lot of snipes around.
