Re: Bolt Thrower's High Elves

Together, starting from the end of quoted rules sections: - if you would be a wizard, you could cast all the spells you know (including several magic missiles and vortexes and including one spell from bound spell item) - but you are not a wizard just because of the bound spell, so RAW you can't eve...

Re: 1500 40 sisters.

The second list is indeed illegal because of the double lord choice. For the first list, I'm not sure why you would take the extra units of sisters in rare. I don't mind sisters in core, since they're superior to what you would normally bring in archers or spearmen. But I see little value in then br...

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

You pose a great question. I mean Holy Cow! The rubber really hits the road with that army of yours.

Mainly because people mentioned that going higher in points meant fewer m...

One thing I have been wondering about in the discussion about 2500pts, is that it also allows some nasty stuff to be brought along.

The armour piercing has been reduced to -2 or -3 compared to the -7(!) in the previous edition. And mounted character...

I have been wondering the same thing. After all, special rules are explicitely said to stack unless otherwise stated.

1) I agree with Morgen. The desciption says "may attempt to use it by passing a LD test". Thus if you fail the test, then you're not using it. It seems the most fair interpretation, though I can see someone arguing the reverse as well. Best check with your opponent before the game. 2) They...

The BBB says Magic armour follows the same rules as the mundane equivalent (if given). E.g. a Magic suit of heavy armour offers a save of 5+. So the question would be is the save a magic armour is given is tied to its "class" of armour so for instance the meteoric iron armour is a 5+ ther...

the problem is you've got two rules in opposition to one another. I my interpretation there is no opposition between the rules.

Those are the only two qualifiers beyond paying points and the high elf mage fails both of them. They're able to wear armor, but they're not able to be equipped with any.
