    Are there any terrain placement rules?

    One fellow I used to play with would D6 for a table setup from a tourney he'd played in. 6 presets, no messing around. You can always roll for mysterious terrain as needed.

    Question about Vlad, Mortarch of Shadow (game tomm 2/22)

    IIRC, if Vlad has the loremaster attribute, he gets to re-roll failed castings under Khainite magic.

    Casting a magical vortex from the second rank?

    Would you get your dice back, though? Odds are, you'll get 2 dice per rank, which means you're utterly annihilating two+ spells worth of dice (raise, sun, IoN, IoN, IoN...) to get not much in return, unless you're just using the zombies as a dice bank.

    Transformation of Kadon and the mounted caster

    Apologies if this is a duplicated post. I didn't find an answer by exhuming other threads. What happens if you roll up Transformation and your caster is on a horse-like mount? Are you automatically resigned to take the signature spell, or is it the equivalent of rolling doubles or a duplicate...

    Has anyone tried Bondic?

    I just saw this article on gizmag about a UV cured cement. I thought it looked good, but thought I'd check here to see if anyone has tied it.

    Sorry, for some reason the chat thingus didn't update, so I thought you had logged off. I was just wondering why my image of the pieces I started with was deleted, but those for that cool vampire lord were left in place. Please keep in mind this is not a complaint, just curiosity.

    Fell Bats and Flying Sticks

    I drilled the bats and sticks with a 1mm pin vise, pinned the sticks with about 10mm of paperclip, and glued the sticks to the bases. To centre the bit on the top, I cut an x across the tip with a hobby knife. Bats sit on reasonably well, and the tips don't break.

    I was really torn, but had to go for the Horned Nightmare. I wish I could vote another 4 times at least! Well done everyone.

    When all you have is a Mathhammer, the world looks like nails

    I have finally gotten off my duff and done the number crunching (apologies to those who've been ever-so-patiently waiting). Included is the number of models needed to dish out wounds from/to opponent's models. pdf is attached. I can fire off the xls via pm if desired. Let me know what you...

    My Coven Throne Build

    Thanks for the tips on GS. I was basically wetting two sheets of plastic film, and rolling out the gs between them. I kept having issues with the film stretching and tearing, and the gs migrating to places I hadn't wet down, so it'd stick to the film and tear when I tried to pull it off...

    My Coven Throne Build

    This is my first WiP thread. And my first attempt and doing so much in the way of a conversion. I'll try to talk through the whole thing. Please feel free to comment on things I can do better. I can't be my own worst critic all of the time :slapface: Step A: Assemble the Pieces! You can see...
