Re: 3000pt High Elf List

[/quote] It sounds like you were making some progress against the support units, despite the outrageous saves of the Warlocks. Also that the Witch Elf combat came too soon, before you had a chance to threaten it's flanks or get a cast of Convocation off. I get that the sheer insanity of that deathst...

Re: 3000pt High Elf List

ok I just played game 3 vs Dark elves. I was wrong about a couple things.... first off, my opponent brought a Witch elf deathstar, with 40 witch elves and the cauldron of blood with Hellebron on the cauldron. he also had a seperate larger unit of dreadspears housing his BSB and sorceress Lord. there...

Re: High Elves in challenges

This is an excellent response, exactly what I am looking for. I always bring either a frost phoenix or caradryan, its my favorite model. I like the idea of using a better armor save to protect against the vamp, my opponent does frequently bring the +2 attacks sword bc he knows I play High elves and ...

High Elves in challenges

Do you think the Anointed of Asuryan is our best “challenge accepter”? How would you build a High elf challenge acceptor? I need a character that can out combat a Vampire counts Blender lord. Much of the power of a blender lord comes from: always strikes first, a magic weapon, and the ability “red f...

Re: 3000pt High Elf List

In my games I'm currently wrestling with how the hell to put a dent into 3++ PG. Dwellers below, final transmutation, melekoths and pit of shades, curse of the horned rat (kills them too efficiently). There is a nurgle spell tbat gets them pretty good too, i dont remember what it was but i had to k...

Re: 3000pt High Elf List

Game 1 vs the Vampire counts ended in a nearly flawless High elf victory. I thought he would take manfred but he didn't, he took a blender lord on a horse, in a unit of ~15 black knights, but his general was a Lv4 necro. His vamp was a Lv2 of death, he also had a backup lv2 necro of vampires. He bro...

Re: 3000pt High Elf List

Ok so I made some modifications based off the feedback. I didn't realize gem of sunfire was user only, for whatever reason i thought it conferred to the unit. that significantly limits its usefulness… I took the handmaiden out completely. I agree for 140 points, it isn't doing twice the work of a si...

Re: 3000pt High Elf List

I'd be tempted to boost the Archmage's Ward to the 4+ item if you can because you'll often want to be casting with the Loremaster and hence not boosting Shield of Saphery. one other point that shouldn't be ignored is the fact that we are playing with the 4d6 (dispel is highest 2 dice) rules. what I...

Re: How to deal with Skaven as High elves

Fully agree with Dwellers, I did try to cast it.. twice? during that game? I got throne on turn 1, and my opponent never tried to dispel it the whole game. I was prioritizing Flesh to stone and regrowth more so than dwellers. I had the Banner of Averlorn in the Lions unit, so it seemed like a waste ...

Re: Warhammer Armies Project: a search for experience.

I will keep trying though. in WAP, I have run a block of 30 spears in a 6x5 formation, if you aren't running the banner of the world dragon elsewhere, this significantly increases their survivability. I find that when my spears die, it ...

Re: How to deal with Skaven as High elves

Isn't dreaded's casting value 25? 6 dice give an average of 21, which means that you on average manage to get it with a lvl4. Add in a few IF, and it's a bit more than average. But getting it 12 times without fail sounds lucky. Don't feel too bad about that then :) Still, it's always nice to come u...

Caradryan on Ashtari Slightly risky perhaps given the Storm Banner but seemed to really work out for you taldarinzphoenix. 13 Silver helms, full command Without mounted characters I'd have been tempted to split this unit. he lost 3 wizard levels, lost all his spells except scorch Payback's a bitch!...

Re: How to deal with Skaven as High elves

One thing to note is that you should make sure you and your opponent know all the rules regarding Skaven. They have a lot of very specific ones. For instance, your opponent seems to be missing that the Storm Banner affects his shooting as much as yours. At least, in the errata it was changed to: Pa...

Re: How to deal with Skaven as High elves

One query - did you find the 2 bolt throwers worth it? I've found 2 don't do much and 3 are the minimum to threaten an enemy. Having at least 3 can also tempt the enemy to send some forces against them, because they are more threatening - think of them as a 'stationary redirector', or more accurate...

thats 8th edition for you! there was a round of combat where i lost 7 lions, and he lost maybe 13 rats. 8th was known for lots of death, and overpowered magic. dreaded 13th is one of the most annoying and overpowered spells in the edition depending on the matchup.

Re: The importance (?) Battle Standard bearers and other characters in WAP and in general

I would say that if your main combat block is a block of white lions that have a noble or mage in the block with the banner of courage, they will fail roughly 8% of their stubborn break tests in combat, or terror/panic checks etc. with a BSB, and no banner of courage, the chances of failing such a t...

Re: How to deal with Skaven as High elves

This game admittedly went much better than the first because I did manage to kill a few things, but you are correct in that I felt oppressed by his dice, but thats fantasy. he rolled a result of a 7 on 2 of the 3 miscasts, which only took out 7-8 rats per miscast. I dont love trying to very specific...
