    7th Ed magic

    Over in the Rumours section a big thread containing lots of info about 7th Edition WHFB has popped up. Here

    The main thing people are talking about is the new brutal miscast table. 2 results in instand death, 12 being no more spells being able to cast etc etc.

    This of course was fairly worrying, HE magic can be very useful. But after looking through the armoury a new tactic came up. Fortune is Fickle being the main weapon of choice.

    Kit yourself out with a Staff of Solidity and the Seer honour, choose yourself the Fortune is Fickle spell and go an a rampage!

    The staff will protect you from any miscasts of your own and if you manage to get FiF onto the enemy caster he will be struck with 'The Fear'. Miscasting suddenly becomes far far more likely and miscasting is very deadly. Either he will risk casting, or decide not to cast, it being far too dangerous. The final choice being dispel the remains in play FiF and waste die.

    All in all Fortune is Fickle seems to have become far more useful, at first dismayed by the changes to magic, I'm now pretty happy about my new Weapon. My Khornate army isn't too bothered either :ninja: :ninja:

    Yeah Fortune is Fickle now becomes a pretty sweet spell to throw at opponent mages, certainly would make them think twice about using 3 or 4 dice.

    sounds really interesting indeed.
    HE are one of the few races that:

    A can reduce the miscast danger with the staf of sodility
    B can use the new miscast table as a weapon due to our lovely High Magic.

    am curious what else is going to be changed

    The oft-repeated "Mages can only use their dice" thing. Banner of Sorcery, problem solved.
    Use Light, Beasts, Metal instead of Heavens
    NecroLords: Use at least one Death Mage
    Brets: Use Peasants&Damsels
    Skaven: Don't use Skryre SAD

    it looks like the update rules will make HE stand out abit more with magic and really become noticably better the other spellcasters
