Re: Henry Cavill on Warhammer

Nice find. I don't know any famous players. I did find the reaction of the show host interesting, and Henry Cavill's reaction feels familiar. It's someone who doesn't want to understand and sees "plastic toy figures you play with" and stops there. And Cavill feeling almost appologetic and ...

I am now considering to repaint the other 21 Swordmasters I have with these colours, but laziness is probably stronger than me for now :lol: As my painting improves my older mini's will start looking worse by comparission. However, I long ago decided to never repaint a mini unless there was nothing...

Re: Chumphammer's Daughters of Khaine Blog - Glory to Hellebron!

Not really related to anything, but I love the giant pile of dice in the bottom left corner of the first picture. Makes me want to pick 'em up and roll them. Not sure what it is about dice, but it's very satisfying to roll a million of them when attacking something. :) Pretty quick game from the loo...

I like how we've gotten a leak about when we're going to see a leak about miniatures... I'm moderately excited. I don't mind 7th edition and I didn't mind 8th edition. So picking the best of those will work for me. Aiming for a 9th edition type of game sounds good to me, especially if we skip flying...

Great news about the greenstuff! I was just surprised to not find it on GW stores now, have they just done away with it? Seems like it.

Yeah, phones tend to oversaturate images. It's a software thing.

Re: Mireadur's log. Refurbished Mounted Chracian lord 28/10/21

I like the horse. He's suitably imposing for the noble elf on top and the purple works well with the blue of the elf's robe. It does feel a bit like there's a mismatch between the highlighting of the puple cloth on the horse and the blue cloth of the elf. The blue has a very bright, white highlight ...

The models are just epic. You've really captured the psychidelic madness of the Squigs.

Re: 1500 pts HE tournament list (8ed)

I'm not convinced by the bows on the reavers (except if you need them to get to the core points needed). I don't think those 5 S3 shots add anything. I think the main issue for infantry at 1500 pts is that units tend to be small and get shot to pieces fast (even more so at 1000 pts). This should fix...

That sounds pretty brutal. Maybe the only way to really deal with him is to kill the rest of the army while you keep Archaon busy and grab as many objectives as you can.

Re: The Cavalry Prince - List Design, Tactics, Battle Reports

I personally think an archmage and a loremaster don't work very well together. Both want to use most of your powerdice. And while you get a great array of spells, this makes the combination suffer from diminishing returns. The two separate mages do cost about as much as the loremaster, but I think t...

It's really going from bad to worse for the O&G. THat one turn where you failed to do much damage is now really hurting. Not a lot you can do anymore. Your army is slowly being picked apart and your options are very limited. To come back I think you'd need some very lucky shooting, a big magic p...
