When you come within 24in of a dark elf unit with an assassin and he is reveled can you shoot him with a long rifle? :dry:

No, because he isn't revealed.

You learn he is in there though.
I thought he should act responsibly and just kill himself.

There has recently been a massive discussion about his on this forum... I cant remember how long ago now.

But the answer was not in the Empires favour ie the assassin is revealed and the HLR can shoot at it... altho I disagreed with this *hides*

so what other uses do crystal balls have?
Have you ever considered letting Sigmar into your life? Please read these educational and informative pamphlets. No, no, my colleague is quite all right, thank you. He always foams like that. The flail? A sort of comfort blanky, honest. Ignore the singe marks.

Well, you get to know about all magical banners, the magic items characters carry etc... within 24". Not game winning, but still handy information.
Oh, and remember GW made it personal, not you!

The larger the battle, the more valuable it would be.  At <2k, most likely not worth the arcane choice.  At <3k, I still would hesitate but at >=3k I would definitely bring it.

It's biggest bonus (although gamey) is that you get to see how far away different units are before you use all your guess range artillery...  :unsure:

.hmmm, I don't want to know.

come on guys, it's the crystal ball, there is only one (and it is marginally useful). the plural just carries the wrong connotation :engel:

I was about to point out they are both arcane and so limited to one per character then ....  drunk = slow un uptake.

Great balls of crystal!!!!!

Well I picture this funny....

"General there is an assassin hiding behind his cloak in that unit°"

"Well shoot him!"

"We canīt he is still hiding, he just has his hands over his eyes and pretends as long as he canīt see us we canīt see him either!"

"Ok send the steam tank!"

I was trying to work in something about a glass jaw but it just seemed too.... nah not even I will go there.
