On the left are the two forests and the hill, right next to the bottom forest is the waystone. The normal house (2 stories?) is right of the hill. The swamp is in the middle left, the grail chapel at the far right.

Is the map ok with you?

Ok some other questions.

Would you like to play open or closed lists?
Would you like to use a dice log or not?

That's all I can think of at the moment. I'm looking forward to the game.

Map is fine. Hopefully I'll learn to use it properly! xD

Open lists I think. So many Dark Elf surprises I could pull it just wouldn't be fair. Will work on my list.

House two stories why not, I'm not gonna go in. :slapface: And don't know what a dice log is, but surely we can roll like this?

Swapping spell 4 for the signature spell, so that's:

- Melkoth's Mystifying Miasma (Sig)
- The Enfeebling Foe (2)
- Pit of Shades (5)
- Okkam's Mindrazor (6)


That really couldn't have gone better. xD

EDIT: Ah, I'm not sure how I can deploy my Assassins. They are hidden until I reveal them, so I'll PM Bishop before we start telling him where they are to keep things fair, but how will Batchron understand the unit suddenly spawning inside another unit? Any ideas? *pokes Bishop*

Finally got it! The Incantations of Vengence and Dessication, and I'll pick the Incantation of Smiting with my doubles.

I don't have much time till Thursday, so I've gone ahead and tried to attach the terrain file using the rules in the site guide. I've never uploaded it this way before (I've always used an extrenal server) so I hope I did it correctly.

If you've got time before Thurday, Darvy, and want to create your army template please do so, otherwise I'll send you the file with my template ASAP

Oops sorry Bishop. Points removed.

Your army seems deceptively small, forgottenlor. All those 6s and 4s make the units seem too easy to deal with... are a lot of those core choices? I know little about the new TK book, so maybe they are. Just making sure you got 25% core minimum! (I myself forgot this in my first draft of my list... and I wondered why I had so many Executioners *facepalm*)

EDIT: Erm... forgive me, forgottenlor, what do I do with this file? xD

Forgottenlor - If you choose EXPORT GAME FILE from the menu. You can then upload a BC file (instead of using the attachment option). This wil import the file with the log and the map like in the other BC threads.

2 Hydras, Darvy? Now that's just mean. xD

/edit: Sorry Lasombra, I won't take that bet. Probably for the above reason.

Well, one Hydra just feels so... incomplete. Plus at 2500pts I need something super-scary to combat all those possible Necrosphixen etc.

But with Okkam's Mindrazor (the reason I took shadow) and two big hordes, both chucking out lots of attacks, it should be fun. Plus the Sacrificial Dagger and Power of Darkness should fuel my magic phases well, and Pit of Shades is always nice! At least I didn't take Malekith or something. I was tempted, but he costs more than half a thousand points on foot. And Assassins... man I once took four in a 1500pts game. It was horrific. :tongue:

I'll try and make the army template thingy then. Do we want to deploy all at once to save time, sorta 40k style? I think we'd both go insane deploying one after the other over batchron. xD

EDIT: Template done, but how in hell's name do I do a War Hydra... it comes with two beastmasters, but they have different base size. Well, I think we should just ignore them until combat, as you can't single them out by shooting or combat anyway. Sound fair to you, forgottenlor?

I've got a Hydra in my other game Darvy xD. It's technically two seperate units.. the beastmasters are attached to the hydra. I did the same thing with the RBT crew.

Darvy- The chariots, horsemen, and skeletons are all core. I just checked and that comes to 33.9% of the army. I'm running a very fast army with little infantry, so it may seem small. We'll see how it does. If you want to know about any of the units, pm me and I'd be happy to tell you how they work. That with the Hydras sounds fair.

Bishop-I exported the file just as you said. Where is the upload function?

foggotenlor - You have to use the (full) NEW REPLY in order to get the upload function.. it's at the bottom.

Darvy - I think that you can only attach models to units when you deploy them. There's an attach function in the properties box on the left side, when you select a unit.

Ok, cheers Bishop.

Oh, I tried to just start a random game so I could get used to the deployment mechanics, but I can't seem to get the template into the list... whenever I click on army templates it asks me to exit the map! Am I doing something wrong?

Darvy, go to the Games Menu, then go to deployment. Now you should be able to deploy your units. As Bishop said, you can click during deployment (or during the game) on a character model, and go to properties-unit (should be on the lower left sidebar) then check the attached box. Now a bar should pop up to the right, which becomes a pull down menu where you can select which unit the character is attached to.

Ah ok, but we still need your map put up on here. xD

Do you mind if we do a standard VP 12" deployment mission? I would greatly appreciate that as not only am I new to Batchron but haven't played fantasy (let alone Dark Elves!) in quite a while.

So apparently I'm to stupid to find the upload function. At the bottom is the thread review, and above that the attachments, and above that the dice roller, above that the post options and the thread subscription, and above that the message text. What am I missing?

I'm fine with the classical open battle.
