Can't an old mod drift in and out of here occasionally?

Do I remember the 60's? Of course I do. Didn't we invent tie-dye or something like that?

Re: Where to buy special (round) bases?

Where are you? I get wooden 1" round bases from Hobby Lobby. They have various sizes at good prices for a package of 10. I believe I might have seen ovals there too.

Re: Advice needed 1000 pts wood elves.

I have said for years that Wildriders should be treated like a nuclear cruise missile. Fire and forget. If it blows through the target great. If it doesn't, the target will be in very sad shape for succeeding turns. Arrow fodder. Two great things that go great together. Don't plan on WR sticking aro...

Re: Advice needed 1000 pts wood elves.

It's pretty hard to run a hybrid WE list. When you decide to go wizardless you can't go half measures. Trying to balance close combat (something Woodies are not renowned for in the first place) with shooting always results in not enough of either. The Ogres are a stick-in-and-fight-it-out army. You ...

Re: Advice needed 1000 pts wood elves.

Up to 1000 points the Wood Elves rarely need wizards. Maximize your shooting and do run and gun. Swap your Spellweaver for a Hero with the Hail of Doom Arrow. Lots of shooters for softening up the enemy and then a unit or two of Wild Riders to polish them off. Go with multiple small units. Chances a...

Re: Any more Asrai left in these woods?

I shall endeavor to persevere.

Really, I get it. It's just frustrating waiting on the real deal. However - it's vastly better than waiting 6 to 10 years for GW to get out a new army book. (Or fix the ones they already had.)

Re: Mage on a unicorn in 9th

I used that very same Reaper Unicorn that you have to be talking about. I even used the pre-painted one and then mounted an old Brettonian Damsel figure on it. The figure looks great and is very wallet friendly to boot.

Re: 9th Age

To try and make us stay put? If that's the aim it's wide of the mark. I'm still going to shoot 'n scoot. Or in the case of this game scoot 'n shoot.

Re: Any more Asrai left in these woods?

Try to think of 9th Age as 8th ed with a lot of the bugs ironed out. Not that hard to wrap your brain around.

Sounds like you're on the side of the angels - keep on doing what you're doing. Gaming will still be here when you have more time again. :nod: :thumbsup:

I put together 5 Sisters of the Thorn and I still have all the bits that are not sister if that would do. (still in the box on the sprues) I used all the deer antlers on the mounts but I see that the helms have antlers and I should still have those. PM me.
