Re: The Coven of Light Revisited

Hello again! Going to do my best to respond to everyone - I'm blown away by the quality of responses I've received! I've got to go back a bit in the thread, as I haven't replied in a while. First thing I'd like to touch on is the reavers. There was some discussion about them earlier, in particular a...

Re: The Coven of Light Revisited

Hey Guys,

Kind of pressed for time this morning, but I just wanted to mention - in addition to providing the unit wide 5++ save vs. mundane and magical attacks, Alarielle also makes the unit immune to Fear and Terror.

I know, right? What doesn't this gal do?

Re: Tricksters Blade Tournament - Game 1

Ouch, tough break man. Still, you need to look at the positives as well as the negatives. The charge you set up on the chosen was a thing of beauty, and you should be proud of yourself for setting it up. I find in a tournament setting it becomes very difficult to remember the little things you'd rem...

You could always try something like this: Mage, Silver Wand, Lore of Fire 11 x Archers, musician 7 x Phoenix Guard (Or SM or WL), Musician 5 x Dragon Princes At a low points game like this, Phoenix Guard are actually quite good due to their uncanny ability to stay alive. At 500 points, I take it you...

Hey superdupermatt, I agree with SpellArcher - you've got far too much invested in characters/magic for such a small points level. What lores are you using on your mages currently? There's a lot to be said for a budget level 2 fire mage with the silver wand at this point level. I'm also not a huge f...

Re: MSU HE - on High Magic and Light Lore (long)

At long last! A couple things here before I start - in your observations for most matches, you've done an exchange for the equivalent spells in lore of light. However, it's important to remember that your spell rolling patterns would be different. For example, in game 2, I'd be surprised if with 5 s...

Thanks guys! @Spellarcher - I've played the coven at both point levels enough at this point to finally settle on the fact that 4 mages at 2200 is just cutting too deep. I lament the drop in strength, but at the end of the day S6 still gets the job done. Breaking his focus is a good way to put it. Wi...
