Re: Fireborn

It’s surprisingly OK Rod, maybe due to the pot design. I don’t have that much though. A little progress: I've heard that said before about the old pots. Seems like the newer ones were a step down in that regard (and also the fact that the lids don't stay open). I had a look around for comparable pa...

Re: New High Elf army project

Great to see you back again. And great to get some games in. The painted models look pretty great. You've really pulled off the traditional blue-white scheme, and you've got some crips and clean models. And the cream bases work really well. Got the archers and proper bolt thrower crewmen painted up,...

I found it hard to decide where the northern boundary of Yvresse stopped and Cothique began.
Don't worry about that too much. That goes for all Yvressian's and Cothiquians. It's been the source of many conflicts throughout the centuries... ;)

Re: Lore/Fluff behind the High Elf shield's Star?

I think I agree with Aerendar's assesment. (High) Elves are generally associated with purety, and the night's sky. Which makes Stars a clear option for heraldry. Also it's a "look at my lovely gem" kind of thing. And gems is one of those things HE have plenty of. I did a quick search throu...

Re: Fielding a prince in Warhammer Armies project

I'm not sure spearmen are important enough to make the cost of the banner make sense. You want to use the banner to protect a clear target from magic. Those are units which are hard to deal with by other means. Spearmen on the other hand die too fast to regular attacks, and they don't kill other stu...

Re: Ulthuan Rallies for War

These small games can be quick and loads of fun. They're a great way to get into the game. They just need to be taken not very seriously. As you noticed, they can be very unbalanced. Some things become a lot more powerful, while others lose their power. Skaven rank bonus is a good example of how it'...

I can see that working, yes. Though HE don't do a very good death star in my opinion. 3+ ward Phoenix Guard are one of the options, though I feel they would still die to other death stars with higher damage output. I would also be tempted by some other magic lore. Mindrazored PG are probably the sin...

Re: Fielding a prince in Warhammer Armies project

The main issue with infantry killing by a character is the combination of the low number of attacks (relatively speaking), the low base S, and the low T. Low T means that protection is important, so you can't just spend all points on offense. Low S means that adding more attacks (with Sword of Strif...

That definitely looks like a fun list! A few things you can do to improve your list (in my opinion at least). I would: - drop the shield of merwym on the lord. He doesn't get the parry save when mounted (parry is when on foot only), which basically makes it a regular shield. I'd probably change him ...

Re: Feedback on High elves 1000 pts. army

Indeed, SpellArcher is correct with the definition of force multiplier. Chariots by themselves aren't amazing. They're relatively slow and squishy. However, they're great to combine with a different unit, especially infantry, at lower points. The impact hits can be very deadly with an average roll. ...

I think the list is good enough for a returning player playing in a friendly tournament. One thing to note is that the game isn't really designed for 1.000 pts.
