Welcome to Librarium Online!
well.... Im not asking any startagies b/c i like to think of my own, but.... it descusted me... he outmagiced me soooo bad it was descusting.. to my 4 despel dice...he had like 11 pwr dice combined with his 2 mages...banners....item that steals 1 of my pwr dice... and i could not get a single spell through the whole time.... he used the comet and killed about 15 men combined out of my 2 squads...... If u want too see the exact army list i used...it is in the army list section a few pages back unless someone made a reply...but is this nomal becuase im descuted and it is bothering me....?
tnks in advance
Right now, I'm more interested in your opponent's list. I mean, 11 power dice in a 1000 pt game?! That's unheard of. If I were playing that list, I'd politely ask my general to let me read the rulebook and item descriptions, etc. With two mages, assuming they're level two, he'd have six casting. He steals one of yours, that's seven. But four more? I'm not familiar with HE, so someone out there tell us if this is likely.
I've had problems with my buddy's HE army (he outstrategized me, basically, but I was a rookie then and want a rematch!). Their high leadership hurts us, and their magic's good. But with enough summonings, they shouldn't be too much of a problem.
well...as u said the 7, then each of his mages had this item that they get an extra pwr dice for each of them...that only they can use.. so thas 9, and a banner that gives D3 extra dice... so thats about 11 on average. his list was like 20 spearmen, 2 mages, 12 swordmasters.... and 10 archers...
Well maybe you should bulk up on doom wolfs and fell bats. Rush his mages with 2 units of 5 doom wolfs and a unit of fell bats.
mabey, but normally there in pretty beasty units...swordsmasters, and stuff
I'd ask what item his mages are using. Unless there's a special rule (like dispel scrolls and power stones), any magic item can appear in an army only once. So if he's using Jarrod's Magic Unction or whatever, two magic users can't both have it.
Valhallan's advice is good. You could kamikaze some bats or wolves into the mages if they're inside a unit, or track 'em down if they're outside of units.
HE's can take as many of the same magic item as they want...or so he says....
so thanks for all the advice and stuff... and keep it comming
Post a question in the rules forum asking about that. I really don't know and don't have the book to check. Okay, I did just check Armybuilder, which can be flawed.
The only magic item to steal a power dice converts that stolen dice into a dispel dice.
Armybuilder doesn't like the fact that both mages took the +1 power dice item. It claims it's illegal. That's a standard rule that can be found in the rule book. Look in the section on magic items.
A mage doesn't have enough points for the both the dice-stealing item and the power dice item. If he's giving the dice-stealing item to a commander, then it's illegal since arcane items are available to that commander.
If a character's carrying that particular banner, then I don't think the list is legal. That banner would consume all of a character's points at this army-size, giving just about too many items between all the characters. However, it could be a special unit carrying the banner, and then it'd be okay.
um... yes.. it was the champion of the swordmasters that have the banner... he is allowed a magic banner of like 50 pnts or something
sry i double posted...jsut look at the post on the next page...sry again and i dont know how to get rid of a post
