  • Those Halberdiers with the Relentless banner should provide a strong countercharge threat with your Knights. The inquisitor cowboy and steam tank are powerful units. Light of Sonnsthal with hatred from the Prelate has to be respected also. However, I fear that your Sun Griffons and other halberdiers lack support to be meaningful threats. I do not know you or your opponent's playstyle enough to give meaningful predictions, but based on just the lists I would predict 12-8 win for WDG.

    I play an EoS Alchemy Adept on Pegasus with Destiny’s Call and Dragon Staff. I’ve enjoyed the model a lot, but that is obviously personal preference.

    I find that if the Alchemy Wizard is mobile enough that Silver Spike becomes more viable as you can do a lot of wounds to high armor units by hitting their flank with the AP10 area attack. It’s sometimes good at killing single model targets that Alchemy otherwise can’t hurt (usually flaming aegis targets). It’s a matchup dependent spell I think.

    These look awesome!!! (EoS needs more cavalry models with hammers!!!!)

  • Quote from Inn0c: “I've done a quick scale comparison in case anyone is interested. ” Very helpful for the community, thank you!!! If I had seen this about 4 years ago it would have saved me (and my wallet) a lot of heartache!!

  • Quote from Donner: “Quote from Nerocrossius: “Quote from Peacemaker: “Potential error on the Lance and on the Electoral Cav. Lance is listed as 1pt per model. @Just_Flo in your post you have it listed as 3pts per model. ” This is most likely an error/typo that needs to be corrected. ” What is the error? 3 points or 1 point? ” My understanding is that Electoral Cavalry lances should be 3ppm. The mistake has been reported and should be covered in the typo hotfix.

  • Quote from Peacemaker: “Potential error on the Lance and on the Electoral Cav. Lance is listed as 1pt per model. @Just_Flo in your post you have it listed as 3pts per model. ” This is most likely an error/typo that needs to be corrected. Quote from Peacemaker: “HBE have 0-3 for griffons. Elaborate please. ” RT communicated that there is a firm guideline for most armies and ACS has received recent clarification (originally we were under the impression that HBE might be changed to 0-2 also) that H…

  • Quote from The Changing Constant: “Great job! I really appreciate the explanations, it makes the changes feel much less random. Though, I am not sure which flying mounts get a 0-3 limit and which get a 0-2 limit, for instance VC and HE both have a similar flying mount with 0-3 but EoS still only gets 2 Griffons. But no big lose, as post states, 3 griffons was not super competitive in the first place. ” I have double checked with RT. My new understanding is that HBE and VS are specifically suppos…

  • Quote from Casp: “Quote from Nerocrossius: “All of that said, I haven’t found many situations where artificer on horse with long rifle doesn’t outshine rocketeer. Artificer gives accurate orders, helps other warmachines, has a 48” MW shot with good aim that shoots over standard infantry and can chaff things later in the game. ” I dont really understand the comparaison ? No way to one shoot a cowboy, monster or artillery with an enginner ^^;Maybe it is because you play a steam tank and it limit y…

  • Quote from DarkSky: “I wanted to ask if somebody has success with the Imperial Rocketeers. I had one in my list in the past, but it never performed well enough for me to keep it, not even versus Ogres. ” I find they are mainly useful against vulnerable single model targets like opposing war machines. The best configuration I have found is rocketeer with cannon and Steam Tank. Deploy the rocketeer and cannon near each other so that the cannon’s grapeshot volley gun covers the blindspot of the roc…

  • For reference this is Ben Mitchell's list that he took to 5th place: (Hidden Content) It's not a double inquisitor list, but it does have the blessed steel cowboy with the knight slingshot. Large units of ranger chaff and artificer on horse. Steam tank and cannon with artificer. And GW IG block with halberdier support. The Prelate has a potent locket kit with a mobile mount. It's interesting as this locket build doesn't benefit from some of the powerful swaps that locket can get, but it is also …

  • KotSG have gotten cheaper than they used to be by a significant margin, so it’s not as much of an investment. But still you have to decide if you’d rather spend 500pts on an Imperial Guard combat block or a 500pt KotSG unit. In general, I would say the IG are easier to use, but I don’t think KotSG are too far either as long as they have support.

  • Quote from Scumboogie: “Chicken knights are good in 3 or 5 model units, but never tried them as 5. How do people use big units of them anyway? 3x2 formation? ” If you want 5+ as a combat unit you generally run them 4-wide. If you're using them as a bunker you run them 3-wide. Quote from Bad: “Chicken knights seem best as flankers/scorers. They can zone off some threats, eat enemy scorers/chaff, or flank charge into combats your infantry are bogging down the enemy in. I honestly haven't tried the…

  • Quote from Marcos24: “Angels would be freakin sweet actually ” Quote from Marcos24: “@Nerocrossius in fact now I have an idea for another set of models ” I actually used some Angel models as Marshals on Pegasus for a long time—sort of like Avatars of Sunna.

    Quote from Pellegrim: “It seems Wrath of Mod has hit James Mcdonald .... terrile shame, I enjoyed his discussions. Shame if that is a reason to ban someone these days. Only makes this forum weaker imo. ” I don't know the entire context in this case, but the ban may have had nothing to do with this thread. For sake of clarity, there are a lot of factors that play into the mods banning someone--usually it's just a short time-out for getting a breather from the forums. For instance, we have a few p…

  • This is probably my own bias, but I don't find EoS cavalry to be optimal at combat in general and I don't necessarily agree that they're stronger than EoS infantry. EoS cavalry tends to play more utility roles. As such, I think they actually fulfill their role as supports for infantry units quite well. 3x KotSG make for adequate flankers and screens against shooting, but I don't find them reliable combat units--I much rather have combat dedicated infantry. Units of 5 KotSG are decent if they're …

  • Quote from arwaker: “Out of curiosity: Would you use Knights of the Realm instead of EoS cavalry units, if you had access to both? Do you think Knights of Realm are better for their cost? They are not as armoured, but have Lance formation and 6++. It is not so easy to to choose. ” Personally, I think overall army context is too important here to make meaningful comparisons. But, in a vacuum I think Knights of the Realm are probably better combat units. Electoral Cavalry make better scoring darts…

  • Quote from Bloody MIsfire: “Anyways, looking at the general opinion in this thread, and looking at our army book as rationally as Im able to, I do agree with the great many people who also think greatweapons for IG, and lances for the knights, are too expensive. So it seems Im pretty much aligned with the majority view. My comment to Dan T was simply to point out that we are some who use what we have, not because it is good, but because we like the looks of it and don't like to proxy. ” Thank yo…
