Welcome to Librarium Online!
anybody have a bad turn out with this model yet??? they just kill so much....its awesome!!!
but my opponents complain that i take one , but when you look at Skavens lack of; flyers, gunlines, combat prowess, bad saves, large targets or an answer to dragons ect....yes we have numbers but whats that matter against chaos knights or blood knights or any character flying on a monster???
watch out cheese armies the cheese experts are back, yes pun was intended
i dont see why your fellow gamers would have a problem with one of them. i could see a reasonable amount of cheese calling if you ran two of them. But considering, like you said, we dont have fliers or any other monsterous creatures it should not be seen as cheese. tell your gaming group to stop crying, it is not impossible to bring down.
...and you do the Hokey Pokey and you turn yourself around, thats what its all about.
What armies are you often playing against? Its no excuse for them but alot of the armies like dwarfs, woodelves, empire etc who have yet to be recast with a new book often feel hard done to when all these new armies strole out onto the field with a nasty unit they dont yet have experiance in bringing down.
Just remind them next time that they will probably get a big nasty thing when thier book gets released or that when it was re released just what was thought nasty about thier book.
thats what i tell them...its not impossible to kill, T5 is not THAT hard to wound, and its a 50/50 if i make any saves, if its not fire. and i constantly remind them Skaven has no fliers or monstrous creatures... it seems people cry cheese when the get beat a few times in a row, as each new codex has done for the past few years.
i was teamed up with lizards last game and i took thanqual and he took a sweet slann with and EoG, and we faced a Woc (throg, valkia, 15 trolls(3 units of 5) (he was going regen heavy) a tzh shrine and 4 flying wizards(discs) with 2 chariots and some core..naked crap), and he was teamed up with DoC, and he focused on an UBER unit of plaguebearers with 2 heralds one being the BSB, flesh hounds, nurglings and blood crushers and fiends), i pulled off a solid victory at the end...i did take 2 HPA's though
Ive played against a few armies now and Ive used the HPA pretty constantly, im probably going not use the HPA and free up some points and let the heat cool down, let the new beasts earn some aggro lol.
Yeah this is awesome! I play against DE and WE and against big blocks of troops designed to beat Skaven (EG 24 Spearmen/ 30 Eternal Guard),, it is the best. I do not know how how you could go wrong with these guys... unless you get massive blocks of troops on the flanks and front! The only thing is when you try to field a 2250 pt game you spend 2550 pt on it especially against DE who are magic-heavy.
I had them team up against me in a 3000 pt game and I pwned with it. I had a HPA charging in on the DE side and a Doomwheel on the WE side. I managed a MV at the end, still had my HPA goin with 5 wounds.
my HPA gets killed once in a while, usually around turn 5 or 6...after its pulled in over twice its points value, im just waiting for the day for when i roll a 6 on the "too horrible to die" chart and it stands back up to wreak more havoc!!!
