High Elf Tournament army list post-event unit review

High Elf Tournament army list post-event unit review

An odd thing happened at Horned Gobbo this weekend not once during the entire weekend did I engage in the usual tournament ritual of re-writing my army list after every game and at the end of the each tournament day.

The Road to Blog Wars 5: Progress

The Road to Blog Wars 5: Progress

It’s the evening of Tuesday 18 June 2013. I have three days to go before Blog Wars 5 and there’s a lot to do before the army is ready! The picture above was taken on the 1st! This post is going to be a brief summary of my progress to date, some of the techniques and materials I have used to prepare the army and my thoughts about what’s worked and what hasn’t worked. Pulling it together: The first thing to do is to get everything stuck together. For the new kits this is a lot of fun, but for the older kits some of the mold lines are pretty substantial. I took a production line approach wherever possible for this project, assembling everything in batches, tanks, piranhas, broadsides, riptides, drones, and finally the infantry models. Working on things in groups allowed me to mix and match between the sprues, taking heads from the pathfinder sprue and arms from the tank sprue for example. The firewarrior kit has really aged and after about twenty of these guys I became convinced that an updated kit would have been fantastic. Especially if it had been made to the same quality as the pathfinder kit which is an excellent example of what Games Workshop are capable of these days. This next picture shows where I got to at the end of my plastic gluing session on the 8th June. Out of shot the piranhas are mostly done and the devilfish and hammerhead tanks are drying

How many flyers?

How many flyers?

Flyers in 40k are like marmite; you either love them or hate them. Either way you’ve got to put up with them as they are part of the core rules, but not only that they also have some very good rules i.e only snap fire can hit them unless got skyfire – there’s no escape from them! 40k has seen lists like Cronair (9 flyers) or Vendetta squadrons (9 also) but really what is the right amount of flyers to have in your list? As mentioned above flyers have some good rules, but they also come with some negatives and that is they must move at least 18″ and can only pivot 90 degrees before moving. This makes flyers have limited manoeuvrability, though does give them speed. This means you have to think where you are placing your flyer as you need to get the right angle of shots in plus you could leave weak parts of your flyer exposed i.e rear armour. Going back to Cronair style lists, I believe these lists do not have the best number of flyers. Sure they are hard to tackle because you need 6+ to hit them (unless you have skyfire), so the greatest strength for a flyer is it’s greatest defence. However, with so many flyers moving about on the table and keeping in mind the above, having that many flyers is going to cause issues. Factor in that flyers base is about 6″ x 3″ – that’s the foot print the size of a Rhino and you still have to be 1″ away from enemy units. Another weak point of having so many flyers is you do not get to use a lot of points on other parts of your army.

Operation #Steakbet – The approaching the end. – Grail Reliquae

Operation #Steakbet – The approaching the end. – Grail Reliquae

In addition to getting a ton of building of non-Bretonnian models built in the past week, I have had 2 hours a night to work on my Grail Reliquae and finish it up. I dropped the Questing Knights from my list a few weeks ago after their less than appreciable performance in a few games and replaced it with a full Grail Reliquae.
