    Warhammer 8th - Don't hate me

    I agree with all the above especially changing the wraith to a banshee, much better choice in my opinion. Also I'd consider splitting the zombies into 2 units of 20 won't take long for them to be 2 units of 40 ;) But a pretty solid list all in all

    Magic Weapons question.

    I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure the 8th Ed rule book does state in the magic weapon section somewhere that a magical weapon can be counted as any hand weapon, so you could have Axe of Battle etc. I think it just cant be used as a special weapon like a halberd or great weapon etc. So I...

    Quick question about Challenges.

    I believe it says that you put the models in the challenge in base to base contact if possible, so I think you'd have to move the character from the 2nd rank into the 1st rank displacing another model.

    lone character free pivot count as moving?

    Thanks guys, that's been really helpful. You would think if a cannon can turn and fire a lone character with a handgun could to but them's the rules :) Cheers

    lone character free pivot count as moving?

    Hi Alabaster, thanks for the reply. If you could find those pages that would be great, I just couldnt find them anywhere. Knowing the BRB they are probably in a completey unrelated section ;) Interesting what you say about swift reform, I didnt realise you could fire move or fire weapons. I...

    lone character free pivot count as moving?

    As the title say, can a character pivot on the spot and still fire a move or fire weapon? Or does it count as moving? Had a skaven player with warplock engineer with a warplock musket, and I'm pretty sure it shouldn't fire if it has pivoted in the movement phase, but I couldn't find it in the...

    Mantic Soul Reader Cavalry

    Hi @VonRaetia , I have some of the older soul reaver knights. I think they were a vampire lord with 4 soul reaver knights, not the newer one on the mantic website now though. I think they look pretty good really, and make good blood knights, they are a little on the small side, but once you...

    Very new fantasy player

    I think for 5 points it would be silly not to take it. Thats 1 skeleton and I know which I'd rather have. I think flaming attackes are pretty common (well they are where I play). As Alabaster says Tzeentch, lore of fire spell give unit flaming attacks, Empire warrior priest can give unit flaming...

    Vampireless Undead

    Hi, I dont play undead legions but from my experience of VC and TK there are a few things I would change. I would drop the Tel of pres from the neromancer. The 19 skeleton archers are his defence from shooting and if he is in combat then he is dead 4+ ward or not. I'd give him the black...

    Very new fantasy player

    I would not field a ghoul king without dragonbane gem, too risky! And if you are only playing 25% lords and heroes then I'd just drop 1 or 2 of the necromancers, I think 2 level 2 and a level one is just about enough if you are set on the ghoul king. I find if I have more than 3 wizards there is...

    Healing the community

    I have to say I think the best way to reunite the community in terms of forum discussions is to properly separate the games into sections on the forum. I also play lizardmen and lustria online have a section with all the same subsections for AOS and Warhammer separately. I think this works so...

    Anyone else very interested in Kings of War all of a sudden?

    I haven't played kow, but I've watched a few games and my only concern is (from my very limited experience) units seem to be very easily routed. You get charged and you lose, it's like earlier versions of Warhammer pre 8th, and I think that was one of the best improvements of 8th. As I said I...
