Re: Alter Highborn ( close combat version )

The only time I use the Alter Noble is when I know I'm stuck up against a army with ridiculous amounts of Armor against which I don't have much ranged options. Personally, I am not using alters now, tough I am regulary running noble on he horse, GW, LA, Sh, HotH and rebirth stone. He have vanguard,...

Re: What units to use?

Eternal Guard: For a newbi like me they look fairly decent in a very elf type of way on paper. Add a CC Hero/lord and their stubborn. WS 5, I 5, 2 Attacks, 5+ save seems rather common/decent across the board for elf elites. Are these guys actually any good in reality? They are good, but extremely c...

Re: Alter Highborn ( close combat version )

If you are looking for something like this, what about:
Alter highborne, shield, LA
sword of bloodshell, HotH, potion of strength

8 S4 attacks normally, 9 on charge, S7 if you use the potion..? ;) Plus can be healed by lifeweaver and can have 4+ ward for staying close to infantry units...

Re: Vaul's Undoing

I think it's been FAQed that they cannot be destroyed as magic items actually. Unfortunately, not in 8th ed; and 7th ed FAQs are not source of rules anymore. Plus, there was only stated that they are not magical items, the destroying issue was not directly touched. Tough it has been FAQed in 8th th...

It is not FAQed nor the item states otherwise. It can not destroy spites.

Re: From the horses' mouth - Empire VS Asrai.

@Unicorn: What would you suggest VS treekin/treemen - Pistoliers for S4 AP shooting, a Helblaster for area-denial, extra Greatswords? Treekins? Hmm. Magic, probably, is the best choice. They are flammable and you deny them their ward. Or STank. They can not do much to it - and even treeman hates hi...

Re: From the horses' mouth - Empire VS Asrai.

Basically: The main treats for you are his treekins and treemans. You need to find a way how to cripple/destroy them. Rest of the units is tough, but will not be able to break the steadfast of your ranked units for several rounds of close combat, so will get stucked - and after that, they can be cou...

Re: Poor defenceless elf Vs. Hellpit abomination ?

@unicorn--How does that tactic with the Eagle work exactly? I assume you mean that the HPA can't rotate before it rolls it's random movement if the Eagle is close enough to it's side. I understand that as part of most moves, a unit can't come within 1" of an enemy model, unless charging--so I ...

Re: Poor defenceless elf Vs. Hellpit abomination ?

Really, the best way to deal with the HPA is shooting and finishing it off with high Initiative combat troops like Dryads. In fact, the best way to deal with HPA is stick an eagle to its side and let it move directly forward in every single turn. For 50 pts, it is pretty safe and reliable way how t...
