  • Wow sorry, it was late yesterday and I had only CTRL-F'ed the term "Highborn Elves", so I had missed 4 lists, including yours I have included those 4 lists now in the main post Quote from Kopistar: “My biggest surprise comes from DarkS. If he puts the titanic might on the spear (which would make sens because he paid it). That's 3A S7 ap3 agi8 if he got charged. Not sure how much better than the GW it is and not sure if it is worth the cost. But i like the idea and the out-of-the-box thinking ” H…

  • @Kdownunder Compared to Ocho there are far less Grey Watchers and Sword Masters indeed, but Flame Wardens (only 1 list in Ocho included them) have appeared again. Seems that people are trying out different concepts Also nice to see players trying out different Core setups than the Sea Guard block + Support units, although it remains the most popular.

  • Also: the HE lists for the online team tournament Cinco de Wingo: HE lists - Cinco de Wingo

  • Hi! I bring you the Highborn Elves' lists of the Cinco de Wingo online team tournament, organized by the USA ETC team and played in Universal Battle. Teams are made up of 5 players, and each player plays 6 games. The duration is six weeks. You can find the forum thread for the tournament here: Cinco De Wingo- 5 Man Universal Battle Team Event TourneyKeeper link: tourneykeeper.net/Team/TKTeamleaderboard.aspx?id=3228 (Results will be uploaded here when the event is finished). All lists: docs.googl…

    I'll briefly interrupt to ask @youngseward if he would, by any chance, be able to provide a link to the lists for all factions?

  • Hi! This is probably slightly old news to many, but I thought it would still be interesting: Results from the Ocho team tournament: tourneykeeper.net/Team/TKTeamcodexleaderboard.aspx?id=3187 HE Ocho lists: HE General and News - Discussion On first glance, Highborn Elves were the fifth most popular faction and the fifth top performing faction (tied on average points with KoE). You can check the battle reports of second best HE scoring player @Arthur (tied with the one and only @BustaMoovee) here:…

  • Age of Single models?

    Quote from Pellegrim: “What discussion? The single models one? We haven't established there is a problem there, still. ” I think there is definitely a problem perceived by several people (shameless self plug): Age of Single models? In fact, and this is still anecdotal evidence, the only character and single model light (more or less) list in the top 10 performing lists of Ocho that you posted is the UD one.

    Let me try to summarize things. I will miss proposals because this thread is quite long and, although I have been following it from the beginning, I can't remember everything, but I hope I don't misrepresent the different positions. First: what is the problem? Well, there are several, according to whom to you ask. I think the main problem is that powerful monsters and single models are perceived to be doing most of the fighting while regular troops, particularly Core Standard Infantry, are perce…

  • @ErenHolyFlame Since the list is pretty defensive you can consider exchanging the 10 Archers+5 Reavers for 20 Spears with Musician. It is a better unit for Scoring and supporting the FW and SMs, and since you are already playing defensive having 1 instead of 2 units of chaff is not very important (imho).

    Quote from Chronocide: “You really need to work on your terminology. Infantry doesn't matter to this topic. A giant is on the weak end of SSMUs and it's infantry. Likewise, your Blocks aren't always infantry. DL has blocks, but they are Beasts - but it's the same struggles. ” I think arguing over terminology is completely sidestepping the points he made. This is how you sounded to me: "Oh but technically blocks of Daemons are blocks of Beasts, not Infantry." I get it, technically correct is the …

  • Some questions about special items Feel free to ignore them if they cannot be answered yet. In the Ninth Scroll vol. 12 p.34 we can read a legend about five Elven princes and a special set of armour forged by the god Dorac, which is heavily implied to be the origin of the enchantment Protection of Dorac. Are there similar legends for, say, the Book of Meladys or Elu's Heartwood? Is the Book of Meladys named to honour the goddess, or is there a legend telling that she wrote the first volume / ins…

    Quote from Morgan_Treeman: “What about if every core point above the minimum core amount, came without the core tax? For example: Regular OK list, once you fill core to 1125 pts, every bruiser cost 30 pts instead of 38 pts. ” I think that removing the Core Tax* completely is a strictly superior approach. * By Core Tax I mean the overcost of a Core Unit over a Unit of any other category with the same stats and rules. I think this is what most people mean by Core Tax, right?

    To add to @jirga 's finding, the UK-based shop Sarissa Precision is also making movement trays for Oathmark for models on 20 mm bases: sarissa-precision.com/collections/oathmark There are two styles: separated square holes or no separation and the boundary is extended to the correct dimensions. I have got hold of the book a couple of weeks ago and I have only skim read it, but I have had a very positive first impression In the FB group you can find some downloadable files for Kingdom and Army sh…

    Hi! I got my last 5 metal Phoenix Guards from eBay last February, and finally the time has come to paint them and finish a unit of 20 Flame Wardens. I painted 10 of them at the end of last year, so I'll be using the same colour scheme: (Hidden Content) In the meantime I have already painted the champion, musician and two more models. Unfortunately, I broke the metal banner at some point and I can't find the lower part of the staff anymore. I thought of using a spare metal spear from an Ellyrian …
