  • Third payment sent to complete the pennies, for the service of event tickets. I've raised a query with PayPal for the first MIA payment, so on that as well. Can I get a name change now please? otherwise I'll never qualify for the Masters with so many copies of myself from attended events. Thanks,

    Hey guys, I heard there was an event in the region run every year? (possibly it could be over towards Valencia though) I have the ability to get to this region to attend an event next year, wondered how best to find it if it happens? Thanks,

  • Nope, they are all spelled correctly, there is not one by that name printed on literature at the event. The person in the flesh perhaps... I had hoped to take names and chew bubble gum at this event, but I am going to be so busy sorting the names there will be no time for bubblegum.

  • I get that "almost always" doesn't exactly convert to 50% on the discipline tests. I think statements vs stats could tie us up all day. I believe the point to the discussion was regarding Ambushing units generally appear on the edge of the board, which happens to be a dangerous place for a panic test. Because 1 you're likely to be away form General and BSB, and 2 if you fail you're likely to panic off. I have enough experience ambushing discipline 8, 10 man units of longhorns and seeing them pan…

  • Just confirming, payment has arrived this time? It's not update on the list. Although I hope Tim Botknecht is grateful me paying for him... Thanks,

    Nothing like bringing a Discipline 8 list, no BSB, and just put your faith in the dice to hold. Playing a 20-25 unit MSU army, where everything is a fireball away from panic is a feeling like none other. Very cinematic as well, either they fail/you pass the dice and you Zulu dawn them front back and sides for a swarming. Or they blow a hole in your lines and send half of it scampering away, meanwhile you flood the gap with the next wave. (If it didn't break as well) Sometimes your forces flee al…

  • Team Mookbusters 2/3rds lists submitted. Painting tables are go,

  • Sorry it’s been so long again for an update. Now that house move is all done I should find some more time for hobby updates. Kicking this one off with some modelling visuals of the new Gortach models for the herd. (replacing the endless spell big cows from GW) The two beasts are Meirce Minatures and the riders (cav themed herd that it is) are GW minos with some minor re-positioning of legs to have them mount. Handling chains and some useful sculpting cover ups bits where necessary. First guy is …

  • Oh so you mean, a Cyclops could have a "one per army" upgrade to channel. I like this idea, it could work as a cool option where it steal an opponents unused Veil tokens and move them to the BH player? (As a one off rule more power/impact would be nice) And for clarity previously i mentioned Cyclops should have Accurate vs Channel, not channel itself. I have fingers crossed for a gold edition Herdstone/warplatform that will channel and cast spells etc.

  • If I can survive the final singles event of the year then I'll be there in the main event, and you can count me in. If somehow I finish outside the places i guess I'll be there for the side event to also prevent Jord winning the event and the painting award. (I'll play you last round Jordan, no submarine action this time for you )

    @Mirdhynn I'll try and do an overview of how I personally get the best of the cyclops when I play and how I build my list/how it plays. I'll stick in in a separate thread when I am done, would that be alright? Not saying everyone should do it, and of course there will be other ways to play them, but I can do a summary of how I have used them and share information on that.

    HI all, I seem to play BH differently, as I very much have a control style and react to opponents rather than play an out and out push style. But I have spend years building around Cyclops and making the most of them as my favourite models. I am pleased they came down slightly in points, but I feel they are missing something to make them balanced. - (Accurate vs Channel) would be my preferred way of fixing them. - Removing the chance of them losing ammunition for the rest of the game would also …

  • 3x Grt Wpn minotaur.... Unless you run a champion and run them like a dart, I am not convinced this unit will help you. Any lightweight target they want to fight (I.e. one that doesn't kill them first) can be dealt with easier with paired weapons or shields, both which help them survive longer as well as they are more likely to get to strike. But hopefully you have a role for them you like, but I think you might find striking at all is better than waiting for the last one to wound on 2's. Cheers…

  • Team PWP disbanded with the reduction to 3's. So now Team Mookbusters (two thirds of a team name) needs a third arm to compliment SA & BH we think at this stage. Cheers,

  • Interesting, so far i haven#'t had that issue as I have ranged monsters to protect the flank as no one can afford to fail a long charge there. but I take it on board, I'll see how the next games like this play out. I think other races would lose their minds if we had Bodyguard in Core. (Although i'd like to see it work on a single Beastlord/Chieftain joining unit only, as a Herd leader.) Cheers,

  • Doubles! Both games results add together! Cannot split a 4 man team into 3's that's Maths!

  • Another update of games played with some bad choices or lesser used units, at the Cardiff Open this weekend past in UK. My list was a Triclops list with master shamanism, and Evo adept powering two blocks of Mongrel Spears and Mino Chiefs, plus 3x hounds, 5 centaurs and two ambush units of longhorns. With a list looking to make use of MR. (O-Rock, I-Burin, 3x Ae-Icons, plus cyclops) Overall summary, Cyclops were pretty disappointing in this one, their shooting vs the ranked units missed also, th…

  • @Shako, those figures are very useful many thanks for doing them. @Smith F, thank you for you feedback too, not everyone is against the changes made, but there are some areas that need help. There are other of us who have played triple clops and have well tested their balances for many years, and they are indeed short for their cost. Double Jabba is another thing tested a few times but in a game with so much discipline protection it is too narrow an impact currently. I'll keep up with the DM's a…

    Thanks for the feedback all, I have a running list of requests combined looks something like the below for the moment, roughly in priority order (based on number of mentions); Points Change Feedback; - Wildhorn Herd - Free weapon choice / -1 pt to weapon choices - Cyclops - 10 pts - Longhorn Herd - 1 / -2 pts per additional model - Eye of Dominance - Drop back to 30 pts - Inscribing Burin - Drop 5 pts - Banner of Wild Herd - Drop back to 50 (Some think drop to 40 given the one turn use ) - Jabba…
