  3. Its been about 12 pages since I last checked into this thread but thought I'd post about a one-dayer I have coming up this weekend. Due to a range of factors (timetable clashes, 1,000pts, splintered community etc), numbers are lower than we hoped (only 4 of us, so a minimum for 3 games). We are playing random scenarios from GH, with artefacts etc being picked for each game. I've included the lists below - my Hunters have scythes - and will post pics of my force later in the week. Now to think of what to do about that Bloodthirster and the wave of undead....

  5. The FAQ for the main rules also gives some examples in the shooting section, where GW make it clear that it is model eye's view (ie true LOS) that is the test. For instance, the answer regarding shooting a larger unit standing behind a smaller unit.
  6. Thanks for the write up @MidasKiss. Remember there is true line of sight so if the models can't see through the wood they can't fire through it leafy trees help
  7. @InternetPseudonym @Ferrus Mattus Tagging two other Kiwis from these boards to draw their attention to this thread.
  8. @Die Gruenhaut In terms of models, the Start Collecting box is excellent value and will give you the Treelord Ancient, the Branchwych and some dryads. In fact, its worth getting two boxes, if you can afford it, as you will definitely use the second treelord/treelord ancient/durthu when you play at slightly larger sizes and it will give you enough Dryads for games at 1,000 points. The alternative would be to pick-up some dryads on eBay (or local equivalent, buy/sell page etc) as they are older models. Then all you need do is buy some Hunters
  9. Great following your return to the game James. I left the hobby in about 2000 and returned in 2013/4 so had to go through a similar process of rebuilding the hobby station and connections to gaming groups etc.
  10. Good to know Gus - When I'm next down at my firm's Christchurch office I might have to drop in. Tim, funnily enough, I find fewer work reasons for visiting Hamilton though I do have a case on at the moment down there.
  11. Hey guys, Dan Street, Auckland-based and looking at getting along to the one-dayer at GuardCon. Got a young family so find travelling for tournaments nigh-on impossible but can definitely do games at home with a table and plenty of terrain. Enjoy all aspects of the hobby - modelling, painting and gaming. Importantly, just enjoy talking about the hobby, the fluff and honing tournament lists (within the boundaries of theme). Mainly can be found on Twitter. See you around. Dan
  12. Try the Paint Pot app for iOS - has all the Citadel and Vallejo paints. You can mark all the paints you have in your collection, create paint recipes etc
  13. Interested in thoughts on deployment. In particular, the pros and cons of deploying in the spirit paths. The analysis may change depending on the scenario (for example, Escalation). Pros - avoiding being shot, ability to deploy anywhere on the table near a wood Cons - can't use command abilities, spells or other methods of generating woods while off the table, so in Matched Play you are likely to only have one wood on the table (so your point of arrival is predictable).
  14. Hmmmm my birthday weekend but very tempted.
  15. But if you remove the "a" then it becomes ambiguous suggesting that you can only cast two spells even if you have 4 casters (for example). Just on on my phone so hard to find an example at the moment, but I understand it to be widely accepted that you can cast two spells per caster (not just one caster) with the battalion.
