  • Quote from Velux: “I'd like to point (again) one of the problem that seems for me one of the most important : Unstable... Yes, the skeletons point cost got reduced, and I thank you for that a lot, because it makes me play 2x45 spears'letons, with both undying will, and it is really fun to play. But! summering unit and nomarch makes the units quite expensive, and if you get in close combat against an elite unit, it melt in 2 turns max... For less points, in other armies you can get 60 models, wic…

  • Unrelated question to what is discussed now. In a DE list buolding thread there was the dicussion about a Captain on chariots joining a raptor chariots to make a beafier unit with the option to split. Wpuld the same work for a Barb chief with warrior or chosen chariot? With fearless, more than half needs to have fearless in order to benefit. So a chief with trophy rack joined to either chariot can should be able to flee while also rerolling checks and can split up when needed. Has anyone tried t…

  • I think skeletons need an ability or stat increase to specialize them more in tarpitting/anvilling. NG just might need a second attack or Battle Focus by default to make them more offensive. Also a very clear difference with advantages and disadvantages for both Stone and Bone elements of the book.

  • There are several reasons why its not used. It uses an artifact slot, we have access to buffing while healing if we want, usually people take multiple wizards to get extra channel instead of the book, its a bound spell and so relatively easy to dispel. It is seeing a bit more use now that healing increases a spell's casting value by 2 as a sort of emergency back-up healing, but you'd need to deplete the opponents dice first.

  • Every unit within 12 inch of the caster is affected by Death is Only the Beginning. That means you can heal (raise) each unit within 12 inch of the caster with all normal restrictions (not past it initial unit size, limited healing on towering presence and character models, etc).

  • A colossus with Scales of Destiny (bound spell Fate's Judgement) gets +3" range per wizard withing 9", correct?

  • Quote from PrinceCharming: “Quote from Happy Aspid: “Quote from PrinceCharming: “If a doomlord on behemoth breaks from CC, donthey both attack? Or just the doomlord? Just to be sure hahha ” Both unleash full amount of their CLOSE COMBAT attacks. Which means - no stomps. ” And whyvdoes the behemoth get to strike? He is not exiled right?Also, it does reroll the breaktest than? ” Path of the Exile says models with path of the exile make their close combat attacks, not model parts.

  • Quote from Feldmarshal: “Quote from umbranar: “Futher changes will probably only happen in the UD LAB project. I agree its not really fixable by point changes, but point changes make it suffer-able. ” I know but I don't like this method, if a change was necessary as it was it should at least be given the possibility to tweak it a little bit after feedbacks, especially if it wasn't playtested much before implementing it (idk if it was or not).Of course, if i'm the only one who doesn't like this n…

  • Quote from namadeva: “Quote from WastelandWarrior: “I very much doubt it will go down again its worth its cost. Abom is just excessively discounted to try and tempt vermin players away from their other OP choices ” By giving them another OP choice? ” Last update's point changes were pretty simple: picked alot? Points up. Barely picked? Points down. So I guess the Abo is barely picked?

  • Quote from Happy Aspid: “Quote from umbranar: “Just a random idea that's been lingering in my head for a couple of days: Has anyone tried mulitple barb chief cowboys on shadow chasers? Looking at the available weapon and armour enchant, I think they can be descent while insanely fast and ofcourse "cheap" ” Too expensive. It is easier to take Flayers squads with shields and lashes instead, for this price. If shadowchaser wasnt nerfed so hard - it would be an interesting option. But barb chiefs on…

  • I have no experience playing against a shrieking horror but I guess Feldrak Elders and regular Feldraks are a good "counter" with hatred, fast movement and swiftstride, while the horror can't flee when you charge it because its undead.

  • "Because I like the model" is probably still the best, although maybe inefficient, reason to play something :p

  • Quote from Happy Aspid: “Thanks for response everyone: Quote from WastelandWarrior: “Other than the superdex being a few wasted points it looks pretty ok to me. I like the titanic pw doomlord i might give that a go myself, hed be good against sphinx lists ” Superdex - purely boost of confidence, for you know we already have "good combat stats" compromise on him. May be should replace it with musician\champion for barbs. ” Maybe take shieldbreaker instead? He has quite a descent OS with paired we…

  • Quote from setepenmentou: “2 units of 20NG Musician and Shield ? (Considering both Hierarch are masters) ” always found sword and board NG much weaker than the Paired Weapon option. 5+ as is usually the same protection as wet toiletpaper.

  • I think that is you run a barb horde with Giant inside, you have to support it with magic anyway. Evocations is probably the most useful here but Word of Iron and Hand of Glory can help here. Just march him away when the barb unit is about to get charged by something they can't win against, the giant is not nailed down in the unit.

  • Quote from Krokz: “Quote from Nasion "Demon": “So he provides bonuses and punch agains monsters and block of units without being killed in first round of combat. ” I played Giant in a unit in 10+ games and not even once did enemy allocate any attacks onto him. I would not either if I was on opposite side. ” If I have the choice to kill res 3 barbs with ease or a res 5 giant who only gets more attacks if he survives, ill take the easy combat res and kill the barbs.

  • Giants can charge fronts, just not alone. Take a unit big enough to satisfy maximization and put him on the corner.

  • Quote from Echunia: “light chariots do seem very tempting now, if you can get enough scoring in the rest of the list. It gets pretty hard if you want to have 3 monsters. I've always struggled with scoring for that reason. But I guess if you go for blocks in your special instead of monsters, the scoring shouldnt be an issue. ” With the choices between core and special we have plenty of other, even fast scoring. Shabti's, Shabti Archers, Tomb Cataphracts (can even amush and score), Skeleton Cavalr…
