Is there a summary of how I can play HE in AoS 3.0?

Looking at playing a few games of this with a friend. Just trying to figure out how to use my models. Googling helps a bit but I remember this community being pretty stellar. From what I can tell * A bunch of it is now in Lumineth * Alarielle is a wood elf now * Her hand maidens and a bunch of rando...

Re: OnePageRules plays like Warhammer 8th, you should try it

Well after realizing there was no option for a warrior-mage unit in the High Elf roster for this book I posted on the forum. Within a week the creator had updated with an option that essentially allows loremasters and dragonmages.

So the support is really solid. I'll try to post a battle report soon.

Re: WFB: Reworked and Rebalanced

Hi Furion, a few things. You should add a link to this project in your signature. Moranion's Wayshard specifies model on foot only, but does not specify that the character may not join cavalry units. Is the intent to allow a character to give cavalry the ambusher rule (although the character will re...

Re: ETC 2015

I think the main problem with taking a look at average scores to decide where an army stands is that these aren't random matchups, teams choose who to send where. Like SwordMaster says, you might have a player who you intentionally send against tougher matchups because of how their list works. This ...

Re: Warhammer 9th edition?!

I'd also change the unit type of the corpse cart away from Chariot, that way it could march and it matches the fluff better, no way would a corpse cart be causing impact hits being pulled by some shambling zombies. Terrorgheist - 265pts is removing it from the game imo, it's points are fine, just r...

Re: Fan 9e is looking pretty good.

They updated. BotWD is back to 50pts, so our infantry can use it again.

Spears are going to give KB against charging cav. Shield parry saves are being increased to 5++. Both should make the oft-rejected infantry options of most races much more usable.

All of these things are for debate on the forum btw. Feel free to participate. KoW is fun, but isn't warhammer. It'd be nice to have an game that played like warhammer but got attention and regular updates.

I don't think it's crazy to say it's a good game. the main complaint is that it's simply not Warhammer anymore, not that it's bad.

It seems that the swordmasters have more survivability than the white lions in the shooting phase. And clan rats will tear either the shreds.
