Re: Thoughts on Dragon Princes

Has anyone tried the Dragon Princes against other heavy cavalry? With I5, Elven Reflexes and Counter-Charge they have a good chance of striking before most other equivalent units even if charged (the exceptions being Cold One Knights and Chaos Knights of Slaanesh, I believe), and with two attacks S5...

Re: Warden of Saphery

Mages/archmages without any Honour that restricts their access to mounts can purchase magic armour since they have access to the Barded Elven Steed (which has barding). If mounted on the Barded Elven Steed they can even cast spells while wearing their magic armour since they gain the Ithilmar Bardin...

The other big one that got resolved was HE mages wearing armour: High Elf Realms Q: Can a Wizard with the Warden of Saphery Elven Honour purchase magic armour? A: No. Seems pretty clear. However, they doubled down on any normal armour = any magic armour since they added the same rule that was previ...

Re: Drain magic - useless?

When I played a game against High Elves with a level 4 Archmage on their side, and only two level 2 wizards on my side, it did a good job of shutting down my magic as I consistently failed to roll an 8 on my dispel roll, which is only about a 40% chance or so, and my wizards had little luck beating ...

Re: Drilled Tactica or How to Swordmaster

Anyway, now that it is confirmed that Drilled is as powerful as hoped/feared, I was pondering the practically and efficiency of deploying Swordmasters in small units of six in marching columns 1-2 models wide so they take up less space in your deployment zone, have them keep back a bit next to your ...

Re: Drilled Tactica or How to Swordmaster

If you argue anything above 5" is marching, well then 0" must be not marching? The rules are clear that manoeuvres can only be performed while moving (second sentence under Manoeuvres, page 124), and to march you must decide to do before moving in order to double the unit's Movement chara...

Re: Split Profiles and Always Strikes First

The key issue for me is the pg 74 wording, "if a unit is wounded by a Flaming Attack it loses the Regeneration rule". Is this simply a case of poor wording? These examples we're going through suggest that a character who's joined a unit is not himself 'a unit'. I think it works fine as is...

Re: Split Profiles and Always Strikes First

First question, does 'it' here refer to the unit or the model? "It" refers to the target, regardless of whether it's a single model or a unit. So your position is that Regen would be negated by Flaming attacks after any relevant armour saves are failed? If the defending model has both a W...
