Hello everyone! A big competetive tourny is coming up and I was thinking of fielding The Blue Scribes for their energy syphon abilty so that I have a 'steadier' flor of power dice. Unfortunately I don't have enough time to playtest the current lists I have, so I'm really in your hand's experience.
Just for your reference the list contains either one Lvl 4 (Life), two Lvl 2(Shadow, Beasts) and either The Scribes (most probably I'll take up the lore of Death for the occasional Purple Sun or Life for a bonus + heal) and an HoK Bsb or two HoKs (one Bsb).
Did anyone check The Scribes out this edition? Did the change to the Bound Spell system affect it so much?
Looking forward for your constructive feedback
I used the blue scribes in a 2v2 yesterday and it worked great (until it was killed by a stupid movement mistake). I was playing against tomb kings and high elves. I was generating between 6 and 8 extra dice a turn. The bound spells rule kinda stinks but once you determine what spell it is you don't have to use it. If it is a beast of a spell I was throwing the dice at it. I haven't used it 1v1 yet, but I'll let you know if I do.
Death is always a fun choice because you generate more dice if you cause wounds, but then there's beasts, which basically means you have a chance of having your scribes turn into a dragon xD.

I fought a couple of blue scribes recently, and we were a little unclear how these little buggers worked with the new rules. Could someone elaborate for me how they work with the new boundspell rules? Do they generate a random boundspell that is automatically cast at the spells casting value, or do they still need to use powerdice to cast the generated boundspell?
Well first you roll which spell he gets to cast, then the owner gets to choose wether or not he will attempt to cast it, if he does then it's treated exactly as any other Bound spell. (magic level is the casting value). I guess the scribes still has to roll to cast it..
