    Hexwraiths, what units should I watch out for?

    Im thinking of throwing 5 hexwraiths into my 1500pt tornement list for August instead of 5 crypt horrors (I already have grave guard in the list) I think they have far more uses than crypt horrors (which I like as well) Apart from the obvious (Any daemons and other ethereals) what should...

    I was testing out a new list today and came against a deamons of chaos player I have not faced before. This was a strange game with a grand number of epic fails on both sides Luckily (I thought) I had chosen to test a level 2 light vampire today, but things didnt go according to plan. I did...
