Loremaster and Storm of Magic Madness

Does a Loremaster of Hoeth or Slann with Wandering Deliberations have access to all the cataclysm spells for each of their eight lores or not? I can't think of any reason they wouldn't get all the Cat spells other than game balance and fairness.

Re: Can Slann with Loremaster(High Magic) choose another lore?

We are waiting for an FAQ on that, but the consensus on Lustria.online is that Focus of Mystery means you must take High Magic. This is based on logical game balance more than anything.

Re: advice against the new Lizardmen?

Metal will be useless against them. Unless he fields a unit of Cold Ones but you have WLs to counter. He'll probably have Scar Vets on Cold Ones in which case they'll have 2++ against flaming attacks. I would drop the metal mage for more redirectors. Not necessarily true, the new Bastiladons are ar...

Lothern Skycutters versus Tiranoc Chariots

A flying bolt thrower can set up side penetrating thoughts if you are feeling lucky, but a chariot that is setting up bolt thrower shots is a chariot that's not getting impact hits. Thus it doesn't seem worth 25 points to me. Skycutters have an extra inch of range, an extra crewman attack, a somewha...

Re: My take on how to fix dwarfs. My AB rewrite

Most army books seems to have the goal is to allow a wide variety of viable builds.

Your goal seems to be more focused on removing the Dwarfs current best build as opposed to replacing it.

Re: High Magic

The one clear blind spot to work around a Banner of the World Dragon is to use buffs and hexes. Drain magic removes buffs and hexes.

Drain Magic is a signature spell. I'd say if you use the ueber banner one should always take at least a level one High mage.

Are Sea Helms any good without Skycutters?

I only play High Elves rarely. I always kind of wanted to make Phoenix Guard work. Sea Helms are a neat idea but they seem to fail in implantation. In theory I can see a benefit to fielding Sea Guard in wide formation to get lots of shots and then condense into deep ranks when you are charged. It do...

Crossbows, long bows, bolt throwers, DEs and HEs

High Elf archers use long bows not cross bows. Their bolt thrower is basically a giant crossbow. Dark Elf archers use crossbows not long bows. Their bolt thrower is basically a giant long bow. I figured the main reason for the difference in bows is an acquired taste. Why would both sides style their...

I figured a sword of Heoth would be good for slashing rank and file Saurus. Do the math. A great weapon is clearly superior for killing regular Saurus.

What were you thinking with that Prince? The Sword of Hoeth is an absolutely awful weapon, because it cannot get past armour.

I think the second idea is better. Even if your opponent turns up magic light, HE magic is too important to the army to pass up like this. I'm not sure you can afford two elite Hordes at 2000pts. You could really do with a couple of eagles and your Core units are a little small. Not to mention you ...
