Pick Dark Elves. I can fail more rerolled leadership checks.

Haha yeah Dark Elves seem to be the choice. I kinda want to run a whole bunch of crossbows and rbts with a cauldron in the middle. Lots of rerolls to wound. But it might not work.

hello everyone it's been a long long time since I have posted on here. Hey Chris I was wondering why you say dark elves are so powerful. now I have not played Warhammer in like 2 years in all. but I was curious to the comment you made about dark elves being a top army. I did purchase the book last year but nothing really popped out to say they were this powerful. So if you would please enlighten me to what combos you referring to.
Also are all of you war hammer guys still fighting away at Empire Games. Like John Adam twitch Brian Wyatt Ian and the other Chris. ..????

It's Naro!

The whole book is epic and considered by almost every GT player to be the best book in the game. Wyches in Core, Dark Riders in Core, Executioners, Doomfire Warlocks, Dark Magic, etc..

None of the people you listed off still play, sadly. They all moved/quit.

Oh I see.. I have not played a game yet with the new DE codex. I did not realize they had gotten to be that good of a army. If you dont mind me asking what is a typical tournament list people are showing up with?? Also I did notice the great core stuff but I did not think doom warlocks, sisters, harpoon chariot, new monster, and the new cauldron was that good for the points.. am I wrong to think this????

Thank you chris. Wow four repeater bolt throwers.. thats kinda cheese to me. As for the Warlocks I need to go back and read those things. I did not think they were that good. Now I knew the witches and the executioners were good. I need to just get some games in. so Chris nobody from the old days plays anymore other than you. If you happen to see any of them tell him I said hi.
