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. For the moment it's a purely theoretical army 8) I drew it up as a thought experiment to see what you could face at 2500pts. Mainly because people mentioned that going higher in points meant fewer m...

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

Save a few points by not giving them full plate (unless they have it because you gave them blood of caledor?) Yeah, I realized as I posted the list. Like I said, the whole thing can be optimized. You could also drop the griffon to give the characters some more protection, and put the BSB on a horse...

Re: Speculating/Wish listing on the High Elf Arcane Journal

Tyrion and Teclis could just about be fit in there. The Battle of Finuval Plain, where T&T played a big role, is something like 220 years before the End Times, about 120 years into Finubar's reign. It's just after TOW, but with a bit of finnagling they could just about squeeze them in there. I d...

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

One thing I have been wondering about in the discussion about 2500pts, is that it also allows some nasty stuff to be brought along. You could go with a double star dragon list that includes 4 monsters and a bunch of hard hitting cavalry units. Something like ++ Characters [1247 pts] ++ Prince [491 p...

Re: Let’s talk about Line Of Sight

It's a few things. The multiple wounds has been reduced slightly for the great cannon (D6 -> D3+1), and the S has been reduced for the regular cannon, which matters against T7 stuff. 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.

I'm not a big fan of the models themselves. They're not as good as the newer OK models. But your paint job did them justice. They look suitably menacing, and as if they are actually butchers. So well done!

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. No options and no equipment means no magical equivalents. Two questions: Can you give a magical shield or the armour of Caledor ...

You will actually hit plenty of R&F models on a 2+, as Asuryan intended... That's a change to the To Hit table this edition. If your WS is more than double your opponent's, you hit on 2+.
