    Death and Injuries to PCs in RPGs

    I agree with your sentiment, Beagle.

    My C'thulhu inspired list is finally getting some victories! And some defeats...:( Troop 1 Xeldorian w/ magic weapon (RAV) monocle of accuracy D'Khul Bathalian extraordinaire 10 Broken Fodder, meat shields. Troop 2 Bathalian Primarch 3 Bathalian Exarchs 2 Bathalian Centurions Troop 3 Devourer of Mashaf Troop 4 Aundine The list is simply one I am enjoying collecting and painting. It turns out it is fun to play as well. The whole force does best when run in almost a blob formation. The high point cost models need to be close enough to support each other and the Broken Fodder I string out in front to soak up arrows, and if they're lucky, slow down charges with their Nausea SA and Xeldorian's WL benefit of leaving nauseated models shaken. Continuing with troop 1, the obvious combo of D'Khul casting Barrage on Xeldorian is a real nasty trick, and one of a few things he can do. Great caster. Troop 2 comes in behind the Fodder. The Primarch is a powerful caster, but not the kind to blast fireballs across the board. Much more of a Warcaster freezing and stunning the enemy in close combat. The Bathalians in his troop are all immune to support, and nauseous, and usually last a little while. Good combat troops, but very expensive. Troop 3 is the Devourer of Mashaf, one of my favorite models from the Darkspawn. I've finally learned to play this beast after some time using it wrong. The Devourer is best kept away from arrows in the back of my blob formation. You get two Mind Blasts from it in a game. I use him to pick out select targets, usually the best RAV models or spellcasters, and then after two turns, maybe bringing it in to close combat, preferably on a stunned model. The low DV of 9 means this model probably will get taken out by most Leaders and Elites, and even soldiers can bring it down. Troop 4. Aundine. Cleanup crew. Solo Assassin. Don't forget to use her Parry Ability. It's a good trade to forgo defensive strikes and stay alive to use the Assassin SA. Having fun, hope you are too.

    Custom stats?

    Warlord runs very deep with the sheer amount of data cards for each model in the game. I would recommend buying the book and playing the factions as written, but then nothing could stop you creating a custom force mixing up all the cards that best describe what you're looking for. The game is balanced with all of the factions, so you would be in the realm of the untested, unofficial, and totally wild.

    Warlord - the state of play

    I'm pretty spoiled. I play about once a week with my friend who lives within walking distance of my house. Previous to Warlord, we played Chronopia, for 15 years, with no support. Compared to that, this Warlord thing is easy. The full range of models and the rulebooks are available, with maybe just a Darkreach model unmade. I was used to proxying and kit bashing models to get what I needed, now I can just do it for variety. The online army builder is fantastic. I can cook up any force whenever I want. We proxy models we don't have, and we've even gone in together to complete some armies. Now to get Dalton painting..... Ending thoughts, you just need one or two gaming buddies and the will to collect and paint.

    77171: Stone Golem

    Tasty paint.
  11. Small complaint of mine, as the game is awesome. The good outweighs the bad, and I proxy stuff or convert my way around models I find too delicate, or use the Bones version!
  12. I don't have many complaints about Warlord, but I take exception to some of the choices of fiddly bits on models that get pushed around on a gaming table.

    Good stuff! Models are beautiful and that board looks like Taltos. I play about once a week lately with my best friend but the circle may be growing soon. Keep posting pictures and reporting your battles.
