    Isn't everything in every game dependant on not messing up or having bad luck? Even if you have chaff, it might still be that you mess up using it resulting in trouble.

    No, as mentioned before the countercharge units are rhamphadons, carnosaur, taurosaurs for example. Meaning that you have to deploy your units well, when the time is right, go for action and m8 flyers, m6/7 monsters will do the job most of the time.

    What if, ofcourse when you play DL, maybe you cant do it with your TG. Also, with this tactic, you ofcourse should anticipate on the fact that your opponent doesn't bite. Ensure that your opponent has to or else you charge him. This tactic is build om either you charge me and i get a countercharge or if you don't i charge you anyway with multiple units. Positioning is essential, ensure your opponent cant get out of range and out of sight. Together with Ramphadons which have a great thread range,…

    Quote from Hebus: “Quote from LordCypherz: “To play the counter charge game well, you need to have units that can reliably hold when charged. And we dont have any. ” Have you tried Thyroscutus? You wont say that after you try... ” Stubborn TG, good luck wiping 20 TG in 1 round of combat. Last time i saw that happen was in 8th ed with a Tomb Guard Deathstar

    Quote from Gmork: “Quote from Red88: “i think they mean without real Chaff (Things that only can Chaff) ” I’m not sure if I read it the same way. But even my dogs can do more than only chaff. The can move into a fu..ing gnasher wrecking team and take it out. ” Last time i did that was a long time ago, i think i kind of had to with 1x3 rhamphadons, but i was able to take 2 out in 1 go with a cheeky reform manoeuvre. So it was worth it sacrificing one for 2. But even in that situation it wasn't fo…

  • Quote from Pinktaco: “Sorry, I just need to be sure. With symbiosis am I allowed to cast all types of attributes through TL ? ” Yes, meaning that jade staff can be cast through Symbiosis including the attribute to recover a wound for example. The same restrictions apply ofcourse, meaning that attributes other than damage are at half range.

  • Quote from trasius: “Quote from Traumdieb: “What was nerven at Telepathic Link? ” if you cant cast the attribute spell following the rules through the telepathic link model the attribute spell is lost ” If you can't cast the attribute spell within the restrictions, the attribute is lost. As before, you can only cast missile type spells through symbiosis. As the attribute is also cast through the telepathic link, the attribute also needs to follow the same restrictions. No nerf, just a clarificat…

    Quote from Cuendae: “Ok, my questions is what do you do without chaff when you meet WDG burning portent lord? Or something other that eats monster in one turn. Or opponent charges and chaff your countercharge Also our chaff is extremely effective against other chaff which is nice ” When you meet a WDG lord with burning portent and you have an alpha carnosaur with starfall shard, you laugh very hard.

    Quote from marcema: “Quote from Darkwise: “Quote from Zamo: “My Army:SA Opponent: DL 20-0 (win objective) MVP: Cuatl+TG LVP: Taurosaurs (I still think, and will remain thinking, that these guys are crappy monsters when they havent charged or cant stomp. Skinks on top are just useless, and 4A ws3 non born predator is crap... any game I play, when they dont have the impact hits...they barely do 1-2 wounds in combat. But they are the only real dino monster option out of characters... so we play him…

  • Quote from Darkwise: “@Aeon and @Zamo, how do you deal with a death star, for exemple dwarf with king, a bus of knight with the duke that reroll all its attacks or against ogres bus or any other big death star. I found, for the moment, more safe that I need to avoid the death star. No ? ” Before this topic becomes too much of a discussion, maybe make a topic, SA without chaff under the tactics subforum guess many more want to join this discussion

  • Its true, either bring something that doesn't care if it is charged or not or ensure you can counter it in an even more devastating way, the army does it quite well. If really necessary you can always block a charge. I used to do it with rhamphadons, just put them in front of a unit to block a charge where i know i will get my attacks if he charges.

    I would love them to come back. Mainly because we lack units and its an alter alternative that already "exists".

  • Quote from Eymuster: “Another strange thing is, 4 attacks, str5, only choice of halberd or great weapon - he is almost same as a champion, damage outputwise. ” I think this is a spot on comparison that should be addressed at the LAB.
