    Its gonna be the terrain feature for Fyreslayers, most likely. Pile of ur-gold.

    Yeah that seems pretty cut and dry. Oh well, just stick him against a big unit of Ishlaen I guess and kill everything else in his army.

    I imagine it will be resolved similarly to the mirror match high tide ruling: on my turn, my Deepkin strike first; on their turn, the ghoul king strikes first. But yeah, one for the faqs.

    I dunno man, would making the other units morr viable even do that much? If you have 12+ morrsarr or 9+ allopex, what is really the difference in playstyle? Its still fast moving cavalry that hits hard with a lot of attacks buffed by an Akhelian King. It would be cool to swap out the models (he says, as he paints up his growing collection of eels) but it would end up playing pretty similarly.

    Isnt that FEC ability only a command trait? So only on one model. Or did i miss something?

    Allopex at 110 points (30 point drop) has a comparable wounds-to-point value as Morrsarrs, and comparable attacks: a unit of 3 is 330 points, outputs 30 melee attacks (15 with rend) and 24 wounds. A unit of 6 morrsarrs is 320 points with 24 wounds and 24-36 attacks (if you roll straight 6s for the d3 tail attacks), of which 1/3 have rend when charging. So Allopexes at 110 points might be worth it. Also Daniel, youre talking about Aspect of the Sea. Storm is the cheaper choppy one, not the spellcaster.

    Here is my first try at a list! I desire to be competitive, but also stick to my theme (why yes, I do also enjoy having my cake and eating it too!), which is Akhelian raiding party. Idoneth Deepkin 2000 points Heroes Volturnos: general, 280 points Soulscryer: 100 points Eidolon of Mathlann, Aspect of the Storm: 400 points, Cloud of Midnight. Units Morrsarr Guard: 9 Morrsarr. 480 points. Morrsarr Guard: 6 Morrsarr, 320 points. Ishlaen Guard: 3 Ishlaen. 140 points. Namarti Thralls: 10 thralls. 140 points. Namarti Thralls: 10 thralls. 140 points. Hits 2000 on the dot. Thoughts? I really want to include the Eidolon, but he is a lot of points. Should I nix the thralls and go only eels? One unit of 20 thralls or two of 10?

    Thanks man, I shall try that
  9. As long as my opponent and I agree beforehand what all the models represent, I have no issues. But, I tend to play in a very casual setting with family members and close friends, so perhaps I have a different experience than many others I certainly prefer painted models, but since I'm also a contender for world's slowest painter (aren't we all?) I can't fault others for what I myself fail to provide. As long as everyone is having fun at the end of the day, I think we agree on whats important
  10. Why? I always thought gating special rules behind "red ones are choppy, green ones are shooty" was stupid. Let people paint and model how they wish, so long as they aren't blatantly cheating.
  11. Well thats not exactly true. The Ionrach and some of their offshoots/other enclaves that aspire to be like the Cythai (or their idealized version of the cythai at least) will specifically leave children alive, try to aid the Stormcast, etc. But other enclaves, such as the Dhom-haim and Fuethan, specifically target other elves (such as the Khainites) for their raids as they believe elf souls are superior to others and so make for finer infusions for their namarti children. They only leave buildings standing, IIRC, because they rely on stealth and speed for their raids and care little for material goods, and so have little incentive to pillage or burn. Not saying they are evil, but I thought the armybook made it pretty clear that while some of them aspire to a certain sort of nobility, others care less than nothing for other races and indeed prefer preying on other Order factions. I like it, it gives the faction some, how you say... depth?
  12. Idoneth are Order mainly because they desperately hate Chaos, definitely hate Death (who hates them back cuz souls) and are still too elfy to ever look at Destruction with anything less than disdain. So while the Idoneth might also look at the order factions as their main source of souls, they are also the only other factions the Idoneth would ever consider allying with against the others (if indeed they ally with them at all). The Ionrach and some of the more "noblebright" enclaves are more firmly on the Order continuum, whereas the Dhom-hain, Fuethan and their ilk are more akin to hostis humani generis: enemies of all, loyal only to their own. I like it. But then again, I would :p

    Slightly different question: how do you guys paint that pale skin? I have been following the Warhammer TV guide; Ionrach base, drakenhof shade, highlight with deepkin flesh, but Im having trouble with it looking very splotchy, particularly with the wash. Anyone had similar issues, and got a solution? Or any other tips?
