    Rumors about the "Vampire War" or whatever

    If only 40k gave Space Marines the proper respect and justice they deserve, like Mr. Dan Abnett does in his Gaunt's Ghosts books... I hate how they are just the common denominator in the space setting, when they should be the absolute rarest.

    More Unique Than Ever, A Look at Warhammer Vampires

    Thanks all for reading! I just threw it on the forum in hopes to put a more positive spin on what the future may hold for us in our new book. Personally, this is the most excited and 'looking forward to' Fantasy Army Book in quite a while. Simply because: Anything may happen. From units...

    Zombie Giants

    Alternate Models for Fell Bats (Harpies?) : )

    I also have a weak spot in my system for the undead fell bat models. Some conversions and variants I have found are: wood elf great eagles and war hawks, tomb king Carrion birds (look like massive vultures), winged zombie monstrosities, squig riding zombies, and a few others (think the flying...

    A Note on High Elves ASF And Hellish Vigour

    You are almost correct. Go to your local GW store and take a quick look at the new High Elf Book (usually the stores have a copy on display, as it is not released untill the 10th). Under the SoA rule, the High Elves strike first ability allows them to attack before any ability or item that...
