Hi,

This thread is an introduction and contents page for the "Enemy of the Month" series that i am starting up, something to give the tactics forum a bit more activity and to bulk together the advice and dicussion on each enemy race, so that we slowly build up some sort of how to guide for dealing with different enemies.

Each month, around the 16th, i (or someone else) will start a seperate thread for the specific race of that month and link to it from this thread (which is going to be stickied). This way the old threads don't clog up the top of the tactics forum, but we save all the information in an easy to find place. In the race-specific post i am asking people to post their thoughts on other armies: commonly seen units and character set ups; what High Elf units are good against this army; a break down of the units in the book and how to deal with them; any surprises to look out for and what items we should expect.
If people have any specific requests for a race each month, please PM me.

In these threads i would ask that people refrain from complaining about the army (we don't want to hear that daemons are broken, or orcs are too weak or whatever else), these don't add to the post and just de-rail it.

Thank you in advance for any and all involvement in this series (and special thanks to Eldacar for agreeing to this).

I'm for Lizardmen. Given how new the book is, it's a good idea to review now.

I would suggest the one of the so called big three that isn't already discussed, Vampire Counts.
Had a though time against them wednesday, due to extremly bad rolls and good rolls on his side though.
Failed 95% of my 8+ ld tests :? and he saved most of his 5+ saves for his graveguard and every save against 4 S7 dragon attacks on his chariot :evil:

Cheers

Yep VC's are a good shout.

True, but I used an allround stardragon list (more friendly than normal, no battle banner :lol: ), so the one magic banner I had was ellyrion on my DP's.

Controle the movement phase equals a win against them, redirecting with reavers and eagles and then countercharge.
If that's not enough use an archmage with lore of metal and burn them to death.

Cheers :D

Daemons all the way, it'd be a great help for players of all skill levels.

At 2-2 it went to a flip of a coin, Daemons won and the topic is now up.

i'm thinking Vampires for October... any other suggestions.
Also, while we are on the topic, i will be out of internet range for a few days around the 16th, so if i can get a volunteer to put up October's army of the month thread that would be great (pm me if you are willing) and i'll add it to the titles of this when i'm back. Otherwise it's going to be a few days late in appearance.

With Hallowe'en coming up, Vampires actually seems rather fitting for the month.

Have you considered posting a poll for what army tactica should be posted next? I personally would love to see an Ogres tactica posted, but I'm sure there are other armies posters would like to see before an Ogres one is put up.

This is the internet, not a democracy. If you want to see an army's tactica posted that won't be part of the featured articles, you could just always ask for one/start one.
