Welcome to Librarium Online!
Knowing Your Enemy is an essential part of winning games. I think anyone could agree with that. But this presents a problem: there are so many armies and each has so many perks and quirks.
Trying to learn everything about every army is a very difficult process. This process is especially tough because getting access to all the army books is difficult. In other threads when people have discussed this point, they suggest either buying all the army books, (no thanks) or borrowing a friend's. Those two options aren't very appealing or even possible for many of us.
So I propose we use this thread as a place to post and discuss the various special rules and quirks of the different armies. For example, if you are an expert O&G player, you can post all the vital things one would want to know about O&G before going into a game against them. Once there is a post for O&G, perhaps other players can add to the list or expand on things that need clarification.
If a comprehensive list like the one I am proposing already exists somewhere, please just post the link. Otherwise, I think it would be really cool to make this list. It could be a very powerful tool.
Hmm, this probably belongs in the FB Armies main forum. Let's move it there and see if you get some bites. People will see it here, but this forum is for people writing story backgrounds and such for their armies.
Ok, my bad (insert an embarrassed icon here).
Thanks for your help.
I like your idea of a consolidated forum to discuss the intricacies of play with each army. Though I've found that purchasing each book isn't prohibitively expensive. Most of the army books, except the latest ones can be found with a minimum of expense on the internet. As an alternative you can do what I've done and simply buy the books for the armies you play against regularly. We have a somewhat small group of regulars and each of us play different armies. I've concentrated on buying the books for the guys that tend to flex the rules first and then went on from there to buy different books as I can find them inexpensively on the internet. With the exception of my Vampire Counts, and Dark Elves, both of which I purchased with the spearheads I have yet to pay more than $10 US for a copy of any of the army books.
