The Town Square / Re: Not secure

I suspect that this is because warhammer-empire is a http not a https website. Https means that there is a secure encrypted connection between the web server and the web browser. Very useful, but not something that is absolutely necessary for this website, I should think.
Apart, perhaps, for the Back Table...

Welcome to the Empire - Help, Guides, and Rules / Re: GDPR compliant?
« on: June 12, 2018, 11:32:15 AM »
No, the GDPR is the EU regulation designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe. The enforcement date was 25 May 2018, after which penalties might be imposed for non-compliance. The GDPR applies to organisations located within the EU, but also outside of the EU if they offer goods or services to, or monitor the behaviour of, EU data subjects.

Historical Games / Re: Roman Dice Tower

I was a bit puzzled by the grammatical irregularities  (the accusative pictos victos, and the feminine hostis), but those turn out be due to the board game Duodecim Scripta the pyrgus was intended for.

 I can easily imagine a WFB version.

I must admit, your post seems to have no relevance to the subject at hand.

There are both rules for Elspeth and the Carmine Dragon.
You may not believe this but I happen to have a copy.

Nah, everything's perfect. Only thing I'm not personally a fan of is the convex shield.

that's funny because I love the shields  :biggriin:

But then you love tin foil hats too....

WHFB The Electors' Forum / Re: 1250pts 8th ed Army with restrictions
« on: April 25, 2018, 08:54:08 AM »
Well, the spearmen will not benefit from the parry save, because that is only for HW & shield, and they must use the spears.

As I indicated before, a character in a unit cannot be targeted by normal shooting, or will have a 2+ ward save against templates, at least as long as there are 5 or more models of the same troop type. In that case, items like the Ironcurse Icon or the Charmed Shield are superfluous.
I would replace the Icon on the WP with a magic weapon.

If a BSB has a magic standard, he cannot take any other magic equipment. However, his re-roll ability is what you take him for, and it is best to kit him for survival. I would drop the Charmed Shield for a normal one, and give him the Dragonhelm.

In the 8th edition, CC often becomes a grinding match, because of steadfast. 30 models is more or less a minimum for a non-elite infantry unit. Unfortunately, shooting too is not what it used to be. You could drop one Detachment to increase the size of the Regimental Unit.

If you have points left, give the units containing characters a champion, to sacrifice if need be in case of a challenge by a powerful enemy.

- Well, it all depends on the model you have, but in the 8th edition, halberdiers are preferable over swordsmen, which are preferable over spearmen. I am not too enthusiastic about GS either: knights are a far better option.  But Demis are one of our best units.
- As it is, your WP exceeds his points value for equipment (50 points).  HA and Enchanted Shield with Dawnstone wiould give you a re-rollable 3+ AS for 30 points. Against Undead, the Shrieking Blade (Fear) for 10 points may be useful.
- The ToP won't do your Wizard much good. You do not want him in CC, and in a unit, he cannot be targeted by normal shooting, or will have a 2+ ward save against templates.
- You might consider changing one Detachment of Handgunners for Archers, and put the Wizard in there (-1 against BS Shooting, and Free reform). 
- Always take a musician, if possible: you get a no loss/win in case of a tied CC, a +1 to rally, and the  possibility of a Swift Reform. For 10 points, that is a bargain!!
- Any points you can save should use for a BSB, equipped for survival.

Of course, if I am correct, finding the earlier reference on this website will be extremely difficult, because
1. photobucket's policy sucks bigly
2. the search function here sucks bigly

Somehow, I cannot shed the feeling I have seen this one somewhere before, perhaps even on this website.

Did you click on "make primary group"? If so, undo that.

Works for me. Both what Ursa Doom said, and the Bar Brawlers.

I wonder: did GW ever publish the results of their Community Survey?

Paint the faces, and some odds and ends; put some gloss on the armour, and call it the Army of Nuln.

Clearly not so much a sub-forum as subversion by the forces of Chaos!  ::heretic:: ::heretic:: ::heretic::

You did not need Huntsmen for that - Archers would do.

As it happens, in 8th they are/were very useful against armies with vanguard units.

For some time, I had toyed with the idea to ask via PM all previous members the reasons why they dropped off, but then dropped it as too inconsequential.
