Re: List for an upcoming ETC tournament

Things I really liked: Lvl. 4 death with Asfad honour: Oh he was good. He just murders monsters, which are out of the ld range from the general. Further, he is a constant threat for opponents generals with his soul leach LD10. The path has relatively low casting values and works great with shooting...

Re: 2500 pts army list - Prince of Ryma

It's definitly a solid core option, and 30 extra bow shots are of course not a bad "extra" thing to have. But at the same time, I think it limits you in some ways. First, you only have M5 each round if you are two use the bow. Second, 4+ AS on spears means that they will suffer less again...

Re: 2500 pts army list - Prince of Ryma

I've always felt that spears were outperformed by Sea Guard, especially as a magebunker. Normally, you don't want your bunker in combat, especially with a L4 with no ward save. Bunkering in a close combat unit feels like a bit of a waste. Archers would be better, but Sea Guard are the best, especial...

Re: The Return

Thanks for your thoughts Ferny. Though the explanations of why they were built that way are correct, and enlightening in itself, I think that the potential for synergy falls short. Also, to clarify, a character with Stubborn (vs Fear) does, in a sense give the benefits of Stubborn to the unit it is ...

Re: The Return

Okay, I have to admit, after reading through the book, I can see few synergies, if any. And by synergies, I mean special rules or magic items, some ability that allows 2 or more units to work together efficiently. I'm not talking about how well frost chickens reduce strength, making other units in t...

Re: griffon prince

Agree with SpellArcher, mostly. Not quite sure about the core setup because you only have two infantry units to hide the mage in and both are combat-oriented. If you're not putting the Sea Guard into combat, Archers would probably be a better bunker. I'd be tempted to swap them for a unit of archer...

Re: Shield of the Wyrm

When people post 4+/4++, this means 4+ armor save and then a 4+ ward save. So if you saw 3+/5++, it would be a 3+ armor save and a 5+ ward save. The "++" means ward save, usually. As Parry is a ward save, it can be reflected in this way.

3. I do often use 3 ranks of shooting. In my wood elf army (that basically has martial prowess when in a forest) had three units of 14-15 glade guard, so it is easier to maneuver an archer group if it is only 5 wide. I used to run archer groups in minimum units of 10, but found that they were just a...

Regarding the future of the elven armies. First off, I think it's entirely possible that 9th will retcon the entire ET fluff away and reset to pre-ET fluff.

Yup. Even if you choose to use High Magic with Teclis (instead of choosing one of each of the brb lores) he still isn't Loremaster (High Magic), but instead he just knows all the spells from the Lore of High Magic. So he STILL doesn't get the rerolls, even with High Magic.
