Hey im thinking about entering a tourny in september, and im thinking bout bringin out the DE. also thinking about Skaven and Tomb kings but ill ask for advice on the approprate forums.
the rules are....
no double rare choices
no more than 2 of the same special
pendant of kaeleth counts as a hero!
any advice on how i should kit out the dread lord? or maybe even take a supreme sorceress on pegasus?
how many points tourney?
if it's 2k then it's no problem taking pendent
3 heroes on 2k will do ur allowed 4 so with pendent would make by their lame rules 4 heroes
PoK = Hero?
I'd just as soon not go to a tourney run by idiots of that magnitude lol
But yeah, at 2250, 3 characters would work just fine. What did you want to use?
if you don't get the PoK, then they better not get
1. waggghhh special rule for the orcs
2. vampires and TK's cant raise dead
3. HE's dont get drain magic
4. skaven can't have storm vermin
I mean come on, what kind of tourny is this?
Darks Elves 6000ptsWood Elves 500pts (WIP)
Imperial Guard 5000pts
Well the Drakenhof banner is a hero choice also and with undead raising every casting of it adds one to the casting value for then rest of the phase.
also daemons ward saves are dropped by one against magical attacks i.e. a 5+ against normal and a 6+ vs magical, and their BSB can either take gifts or icons.
im thinking 2 Lv2 Wiz with a Dispel Scroll each and the Darkstar Cloak and Sac Dagger with an appropriate unit of Spearmen, 20 xbows and a dreadlord on Cold one with Pendant and Caledors bane.
obvious i would take a hydra and 2 reapers. also 15 black guard with the Crimson death and ASF banner. although it was said that if an army has the banner and the pendant and the ring of hotek they would get 0 Comp points.
i was thinking shades and maybe taking an assassin. possibly converting up a Cold One Chariot too, andof course Cold one Knights.
Jesus man, what a stupid tourney. I'd honestly not bother, and make sure everyone and the TO know exactly why (stupid comp limitations). All comp does is remove the current "powerbuild" and replace it with another.
upsets me so much I had to make a second comment on this matter.
The people in that gamingclub are obviously not very skilled players. That probably can't stand it losing from Dark Elves.
Second could be that they look at the item by itself without taking into account that our elves are very squishy and have no big tough super lord.
Again RIDICULOUS that they give 1 specific item a penalty.... If they do this they should limit every army.
And please refer the gamingclub to this topic. I'd REALLY like to know what their reason is for giving only the DE a penatly :/
I don't see how this is a stupidly run tournament because of those rules, I think you can manage just fine without the pendant if you were to want to use all your character choices. Yes comp removes some 'power' builds so new ones emerge but I see that as a good thing since it's not like all tournaments will take these rules, this gives variety as who wants to be playing and seeing the same lists over and over. New challenges are fun and if it's not what your looking for simply don't go to those type of tournaments as I'm sure there are plenty more without comp like this, but saying it is stupid is a stupid thing to say as different gamers are after different things.
BEN DIESEL FTW!!!
its not that we cant deal without the pendant. the fact is my current 2250 list has been complimented as to how balanced yet strong it is, and now i cant use it because of one item! sure he's hard to kill with heavy stuff, but he can still be outnumbered, out ranked, and chased down, and although he is ld10 he is subject to stupidity.
the organisers want to see the lists prior to the event too to see whether they will allow the list or not. if they are doing that why comp it so much to begin with? if the list is cheesey it wont be for that one item and if it is thy wont allow it anyway. the pre-event screening of the lists should iron out power gaming lists anyway.
they are heavily comping DE, and DoC, but not so much vampires. i can see why they are comping daemon lists so heavily as they are extremely powerful if not broken (there i said) lists possible with the.
and thats not me bitchin about daemons as i play and love them
