It has already become customary for me to take the HE when I attend this event so after some thinking and not being able to take HE to TEC due to logistical reasons I am eager to defend the honour of the White Queen in Novi Sad.

The inspiration for the list I will be testing and playing at the event goes to @Henrypmiller and the force he took to TEC this past weekend. Cheers!

A mage on dragon. Nice. I'm curious to see how he performs, given the fact that mages and combat are often not a great combination, as are dragons and playing it safe. But I think he will work well with all the chariots and sloops in the list. It should hit hard on the charge, and with the spears and swordmasters it will even have a nice followup I think.

It might suffer against an army that can take out the chariots at range or has big enough units to not care about the initial impact of the army.

Isn't the flaming banner One of a kind?

Banner is 0-3.


The mage is a combat beast. 3A S5 Ap3 and the Dragon gets +2 Attacks and +1 Advance and +2 March if a single spell goes off from the mage until the beginning of the next magic phase. In addition since he can choose between Alchemy (#1 choice) and Pyromancy more likely than not the same spell will also make the Dragon's target Flammable while the model has Flaming Attacks to begin with. So I am looking at almost certain 7A S6 Ap3 that re-roll to wound with prospect of 1+ save and 4/5 regen and healing via BSB.

Nice :D I like!
I that case I would say, definitely bring the big lizard. As said, I think the biggest danger for this army is getting bogged down in combat for a couple of turns. And if your army somehow happens to get split up and dealt with a unit at a time. But if you can get the charge and get a couple of units in at once then you should pack a great punch. Flying helps a lot here as well I think. Let us know how the list behaves once you get a couple of games played.

Ah, I missed that. Thanks for clarifying.

Big lizard is thankfully not available to Wizards because that would be just too much.


I sure will try and keep people up to date and revive my old painting blog.
