Re: Warhammer Armies Project: a search for experience.

Do you feel like he will be sticking around? Yes. I really feel HE need a BSB (I use him as a BSB) and he is relatively cheap, although his stats are lower than those of a noble. The Naval Discilpine power makes that you can risk firing a full last salvo with your seaguards and risk reforming at th...

Re: Warhammer Armies Project: a search for experience.

Again some Blood & Glory against Dogs of War. I won, largely by shooting. My general succumbed to the deadly Kiilling-Blow-strikes of Vespero though. It was my opponents first game with DoW, and several units were too small I think, especially those with the banners. My opponent had a bit too mu...

Re: Warhammer Armies Project: a search for experience.

Played a small battle against O&G, Blood&Glory. Nice, funny battle, we had to stop before the final combat which would decide the battle. Alle dependend on if my remnant swordmasters, hopefully supported by a charge by my remnant seaguard, would be able to defeat the remnants of a black orc ...

Ouch, that was a sad day for the Elves.

Defeated by Tzeentch demons. I made serious mistakes, but I fear that I don't have an answer to that list.

General question: how to keep your wizards alive?

Related question: how can the elves be a magic race if mages get killed off so quick?

Yes, this is a complaint.

Re: Warhammer Armies Project: a search for experience.

I did, two or three times. He is quite good, but once in combat he can only cast hexes and augments so you may need another caster o use all the dice.

Interesting, and goof for elves because you can combine functions.

Re: Warhammer Armies Project: a search for experience.

Interesting battle agains Skaven, relatively narrow loss. My axewielders (with swiftstride) did very well, my lord on Griffon OK, my two lvl-2 mages died in the midlle of the battle, Swordmasters did OK (but were thrashed by magic), as did my SH. My two-wepon-warriors did a very effective rearcharge...

I field them 25 at least. Spears 36.

You're right, I want to like them, and I will keep trying to field a big unit of them.

Re: Warhammer Armies Project: a search for experience.

Yes, I'm still not convinced of our spears, but our seaguards are a very nice unit: well armoured, and capable of doing damage both from an distance and if charged.

Re: Warhammer Armies Project: a search for experience.

Given that models tend to die more quickly in 8th Edition than previous editions, how does WAP compare Aerendar? Is it even more lethal? The elves are a dying race .... and they show it every time. I haven't played 8th much (perhaps once), but it may be comparable. There is no horde rule and armour...

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

Banner of courage only works for one unit, isn't it? With high elves very few units are expendable, so a reroll for break test is a must IMO. I really lost battles because of bad dice rolls, a risk of 10 is perhapsOK, but a 9 or 8 is risky too risky, and even with a 10 not all units haves stubborn. ...

Interesting battle yesterday against Ogres. I'm still not convinced of our spearmen, I had a big unit, but they had a 1000 point deathstar unit against them, so it wasn't that surprising they ran. My swordmasters did well, but did roll a 5 to stand, so that was in result a bit flattering. White Lion...

I seldom use reavers, if I do in 5's. SW: 5's. I tend to give them double weapons. Sisters 10. I like the WL models, ...

Re: Warhammer Armies Project: a search for experience.

Seaguards I field usually 25 (or slightly smaller if I plan characters in there). As it is prohibited to have a deeper unit that its breadth, ideal are numbers as 25, 36, 49 (5x5, 6x6, 7x7). Seaguards fight in three ranks, so between 20 (4x5) and 25 (5x5) are best I think. I usually form two ranks d...

Re: Making a Cothique elite infantry unit - which should they count as?

In 3rd Ed. 'Ship's Companies' could have (long) bow and a two handed weapon. And 'Merchant's Companies' (closest to seaguards) could have bows and halberds (or better said: they were organized like the DE City Guard and had half halberds or spears and the other half bows.) And if you look further on...

Probably the 3+ Ward Phoenix Guard one. Where do you get the 3+ Ward save? PG's have 4+ one, and savens cannot stack further than4+. p. 47: "However, no model may have a Ward save better than 4+ by combining multiple Ward saves regardless of source; single Ward saves with a better value than 4...
