Sorry for not seeing your post...

I'm not going to start a Versus.. Wood Elves thread.
They are possibly the weakest army around at the moment and I just don't think they cause the problems necessary to make a Versus... thread take off and become truly helpful. I think a standard tactics thread would cover this (rather then one linked into the Versus... library).

If we are going to make Heresy a better place for Warhammer. (I note our threads are rather poor response wise). I would suggest a few of the following to assist Warhammer players.

1). Vs. Unstopable Magic. (strats for dealing with High Magic Armies)
2). Vs. Hordes in General.
3). Vs. Empire (Not everyone plays just gunlines)
4). Vs. Psychology and Running Away! (How to stop or create the flee!)
5). Vs. Terrain. (things to look out for and dangerous terrain to specific armies!; iel Grail Chapels, Sigmarite Chapel, Charnel Pit, etc. Or perhaps on Cavalry tactics for terrain etc)
6). Vs. Monsters and Big Things! (Dragons, Hydra, etc)

One of the things that forums always fail at miserably is stuff that is considered too basic... it is almost a part of the game lore... well who cares about Beastmen due to X Y Z... etc. or who cares about Wood Elves due to A, B, C. But the last time I played against WE was 6th ed.... If a person showed up with them I would be saying hey awesome something I haven't played against... but it would be nice for some of the new players to get an overall tactical appraissal or dummies guide for what some of us consider basics.... I had a PM two days ago asking why the Pendent of K was so good for Dark Elves... )

Lexi.

May i perhaps suggest Tim/Steve we do a "dummies guide for army basics?" It may give Heresy Online a source point for 8th ed for newbie players who are after not opinion but just basic advice on a few issues like Psychology, like charging, like other really simple stuff!

Versus... Hordes

Versus... Monsters

I don't think there is a need for any of the others just now (and I don't want to flood the tactics section). I will create Psychology and Terrain threads if people have found particular problems with them (and make requests)... but I've not heard many people have problems with either. The hardest part of terrain is just reading what all the pieces do... though it would be great to see random tactical pieces/tacticas on how to best use different/specific pieces of terrain.

I won't make a non-gunline empire thread since its mostly covered by hordes, same with unstoppable magic... what tactics there are are mostly covered in the Teclis thread, since he is the origin of 90% of unstoppable magic in the game.

I have a friend in my store who everyone claims is cheesy for using a dwarf gunline army. I don't believe in the notion of cheese but is it hard to fight against? Is there a really easy way to beat it. I plan on fighting him soon with lizardmen if that helps.


I have recently started a new Blog. I would really appreciate it if you would LOOK AT IT

I think that Dwarves in general are kinda covered by the Gunlines and Hoards threads... not really seen them played in any novel way that would be different enough to earn them a thread to their own.... but as always I'm open to persuasion.

Versus... Ogre Gunlines

been a while since I last did a Versus.. thread. Almost forgot that they were here (shocking after the amount of time it took to organise).
