If by soon you mean in about just under 2yrs time then you are dead on I reckon Yeah, that's why I keep coming back once every six months. To watch you know everything. Though the Blog has a so-far fairly accurate post on what was coming up.. and the next three are TK, OK, and Brets. At two per yea...

They can be good in large numbers...we're theoryhammer'ed a nice list but noone's made it yet... the core is basically a basic captain, and 6 10 man squads of tacticals with the freebies, a razorback, half with TL LC's. Toss in 3 Venerables w/AC and you have 61 marines in power armor, and 9 Low/Medi...

The average Grail Knight unit has 11 attacks, hits 6, and wounds once which has a 50% chance of saving. Not sure where you got the idea they will splatter a Steam Tank. I do believe you've been playing wrong. I realize this is old, but you asked, and it does appear there's a rules question here goi...

And keep in mind the Brets will be changing soon. Their overall flavor and playstyle will probably stay close to the same, but it will change when the new book comes out.. likely late next year. That also means newer models- likely high detail plastics for some of the more popular units. I would exp...

The peasantry can easily be assembly lined. A box of 16 can be assembled as 4 different groups of 3 models, and 2 groups of 2 based on the bodies and heads available on sprue... at least the last time I picked up a box. As for the knights, I tend to paint, assemble, paint, assemble, paint, assemble ...

Errata is out. Not too bad. TK smacks of VC in 7th. nickel and dime their dispel dice to death, then get off a buncha baby augment that irritate your army from a grain of sand into a pearl.

I think you should be able to use any special character without needing to ask your opponents permission. I don't think GW would design characters that are obvious game breakers. That doesn't make any business sense. Most (if not all) armies have special characters that are worth far more than thei...

Actually with teh 8th Edition changes, I think Tomb Kings got a very unexpected boost in power. a 3K Khallida list- Khallida (an intruiging death machine in close combat) A Liche High Priest, with a staff that increases their incantations by 1, and a 4+ ward save. A priest with a Casket of Souls. A ...

While not quite what you meant, I think Tomb Kings are an army that "gained the most" literally. Their incantations, as well as the ability to stack more heroes/lords opens up some interesting possibilities. They can finally put out a scary magic phase. For those who don't play the Mummies...

The Grail Reliaquae. Creepiest unit in the game.. buncha guys dug up a hero and carry his dead body around the battlefield pretending to be his horse.

Lets get everyone to help everyone else digest the new rules they may have skipped over... Small changes you may have skipped past because it was at the tail end of a paragraph that hadn't changed since last time, or because it requires daisy chaning 2 or more rules together.... For example flying c...

HKB has been in the Bret arsenal for years and years now. The build you're talking about I refer to the Guided Cruise Missile. It's there for the large terror causing monsters. As it was the first attempt, it also has the most restrictions... I belive VC or WoC or one of the evil races I can't remem...

Actually I wasn't overly impressed with PK in 7th Edition either. Read my past posts. They had some value after the warmachines were gone, but not as much as people thought. And now even that little bit has been reduced- because as I said their use after wards was wiping out small units of missile t...

Technically, two could have it... as a virtue less than 51 points, when you take it with a second character it's still less than their allotment.

And how is any of that different to what they could do before? They never got ranks before (and that was never the point of them; that hasn't changed) and they could never break large units. For what they do on the battlefield the new skirmish formation doesn't really hurt them and the fast cavalry...
