    The Unholy Choir

    I'd like to see what exactly we can do with our new toys, taking the psychology theme as far as it can go while still staying as far from rock-paper-scissors land as possible. I'm looking at something like this - Deathlord, lvl 3 (4) Lord of the Dead Forbidden Lore (Lore of Death) Dark...

    Leading from the back for every army!

    Yes, you read it right. There are no listed drawbacks for putting your character (BSB, caster Vampire Lord) that you want to keep alive, in the second rank (apart from being reduced to one attack). So, when something nasty threatens your caster bunker, just reform those Skellies with full...

    Curse of the Necrarch

    Time for another variety of the Night of the Living Dead type army. And the only archetype deserving to command such a force is the Necrarch (seeing as the Necromancer lords fled the country). I've tried to make the characters Necrarch-esque, kept them simple and sucky in combat. I want this...

    New Dark Elf FAQ

    New Dark Elf FAQ: http://ca.games-workshop.com/WhiteDwarf/download/2006Errata/Errata/WH/2008_DarkElves_FAQ.pdf I see the condescending tone of the GW faq's is unbroken. You can always count on GW talking down to you, when you ask them about their sloppy rules writing (but to be honest some of...

    Had a thrall (Dreadknight, Infinite Hatred, 2 scrolls) flanked by a Chaos Giant on full wounds the other day. I killed it in the first round of combat. How about that? He rolled pick up, I stabbed the clumsy brute in the hand, hit with all four attacks, wounded with all four attacks, it...

    Strigoi - revisited

    Another army in the series 'Bloodlines - revisited'. One of my old favourite lists had the flying Strigoi Lord with 6 Infinite Hatred S6 attacks, and 6x5 skirmishing Ghouls (among other things). While the days of Strigoi and proper Vampire lords are gone, I thought I'd give it a try to get as...

    von Carstein

    Here's a try to recapture the essence of the old Carstein bloodline. Granted, it was perhaps the blandest of them all, void of special rules as they were. I don't want to go down the road of Special Crutches either. First draft: Friedrich von Carstein, lvl 3, riding a Nightmare The...

    Ghosts of the North Coast

    March blocking Danse?

    Someone asked me recently whether a unit under the effect of Vanhels Danse Macabre could be march blocked. Of course not, was my knee-jerk reaction. But reading the actual text, I'm not so sure anymore. The unit can make a move 'in the same way as a normal move made in the movement phase'. Guess...
