I have a question....

If we have scouting units in the armies that have to wait off to enter... do the scouts get deployed anyways???

Hey Paul, what kind of army are you bringing? Lots of bows and magic? That might contrast Joe's all combat army nicely, say a level 4 with lore of life or beasts and then a bunch of glade guard and waywatchers? Maybe throw in a bsb with a unit of eternal guard so that Joe can benefit from the bsb as well.

You'll have to ask Carson about the scouts, I have no idea how that would work.

I am not sure how many tables there are however. We should make sure we can spread our magic across the tables if anything for the dispelling bonuses.

So far I think we have a Slann and a High Elf archmage for lvl 4s.

i could not aggree more, if i had to make a geuss i would say 3 tabels. I could easily make my lv2 in to a lv4 and i think we should be good for high lv casters.

I agree that we should have a level 3 or 4 wizard on each table to maximise the magic phase, but with a maximum of 18 power dice for the battlefield lets not go overboard on wizards. I think 3 level 4's will be more than enough, even if we do get 18 dice in a phase that is only 6 dice for each and on average we'll be getting probably around 10-12 dice which is barely enough for them to get one spell off each. Taking magic items that boost power dice or casting values will help us out or maybe a couple level 1's or 2's to get some extra channeling dice and scrolls.

Seeming how we seem to have an idea of who is bringin what I think it would be prudent to sort out or at least have an idea of who and what armies will be deployed in conjunction, as I am a fan of combined arms, basically what lists seem to tailor to each other, ei the woodies will prob "deploy" on the same table to benifit from the BSB, just throwing it out there. if we sort that out, and treat it more like a doubles or triples game the list could be designed with co-op in mind
and of course as table layout and such is given or sorted, the who how what when and where will prob change.
just my 2 cents

well all we have set in stone is who will take the initiative and guard the ruins, that will be myself Andre and Nathan. so we have 2 dwarfs and 1 empire to hold the that area together and by the look of it we will do so real good!


it really depends on how many tables we end up with (3-4), but i think we should almost partner up to make the others to help hone there lists to work together. so how about this.....

Nathan R., Andre Dom
Zack, Jeremy
Joe, Paul
Brent, Darren

We have lists for everyone but:

Dom
Andre
Paul
Brent

I've got a spreadsheet started that has the units that we have so far, right now we have:

7 units of combat infantry (hammerers, Temple Guard, etc)
3 units of support infantry (dryads)
3 units of ranged infantry (thunderers, handgunners)
5 units of combat cavalry (Knights)
2 units of support cavalry (pegasus knights, chariots)
7 war machines
1 monster (treeman)

I can send you guys the spreadsheet if you want it but we can think about what needs adding, what we have enough of and whatnot. I like the idea of teams, I'll divide up the spreadsheet a bit to take that into account as well.

Those lists look good, I would recommend adding a runelord or at least a runesmith to Andre's list though so we have access to a few dispel runes.

The problem with adding ogres to our side is that we lose the trusted alliance allignment. Do we have any other armies that he could use instead or is he set on playing ogres?

There is no "alliance" status. You just examine everything on a unit by unit basis. So the Ogres won't be able to use anyone else's Inspiring Presence, Hold your Ground, and you can't mix characters between the Ogres and the rest.

However, if you include Skaven or Dark Elves, then it makes the entire alliance "Fragile" and each army downgrades ALL of its alliances to all the other armies half the time each turn.

You are right. I mis-read that in the rulebook. Welcome to the new guy and his ogres then!

That High Elf army is actually illegal. You need at least 3 units so I guess you'll have to drop Caradryan and go with the chariot and dragon princes or just the dragon princes and give them a good magic banner.

After looking over what we have said we are bringing (other than the two missing lists), I think I'm going to switch out one of my thunderer units for a smallish (15 or so) unit of longbeards. I think it will give me more offense as they will help support the hammerers and guard their flank. I'll still keep 1 unit of 10 thunderers so I'll have pretty good ranged capabilities as well.

Edit:

Also, am I lending models to anyone? Here is what I have available to lend:

Wood Elves:
24 dryads, 16 painted but they all should be done by the time of the megabattle
6 treekin (old treemen)
1 treeman
drycha

Bretonnians:
11 knights errant & 3 command groups
9 or so knights of the realm
6-ish grail knights
battle standard bearer
lord on a warhorse
6 pegasus knights

Dwarfs:
12 or so slayers including command
2 slayer characters
grudge thrower
cannon
flame cannon
ironbreakers
warriors
crossbowmen/rangers

I'm still hoping for some sort of a map or something from Carson and Bob so that we know what the battlefield will look like. A get-together does sound like a good idea though, if nothing else we can let everyone know the magic items that we are taking and see if we can come up with some good combinations. Remember that most of our characters can join each other's units so we could really get some good buffs going with magic items.

so Carson has said that more info on the event will be coming soon, so with that in mind would it be possible for people to get together either this upcoming Friday or the Friday after that? if we have any other times that work better for people let me know. i could host us if we want to get together and finalize our lists and work out some kind of deployment plans based on the knowledge that we should get some time in the near future .

We should also find out what else we need to muster up to build our "free units". this is what we get
25 Inner circle knights - Carson(19?), Dom( I have 18)
40 saurus warriors - zack
Korak-gar - Jerrmey or zack?
20 handgunners - Carson
2 great cannon - Carson
2 mortars - Carson (1) Andre (1)
2 hellblasters - Carson (1)
Master Engineer - Carson
Captain of the empire - Dom
general on gryphon - Carson

so we should only need a hellblaster, and we should be good i geuss

I don't have access to anything empire or lizardman so I can't help you with anything but it looks as though we've got pretty much everything anyway. I do have some credit at the den so if worse comes to worse I can chip in to buy that 2nd hellblaster.

So now that we have a map are we going to meet tonight and figure out our deployment? I believe we fully deploy before team evil so we might as well get a good plan beforehand so that we only have to make minor tweaks on game day depending on the other terrain on the table. We should also come up with some plans on how to deal with some of the different threats we are going to face etc.
