Whats the spell you fear the most?
I find magic can either be mediocre or awesome and sometimes just one spell can have a huge impact on the game, so which ones do you fear coming off against you???

Indigo Fire.... My fave spell of the game. When you field lots of low toughness, low WS troops with no armor, it doesn't take much for a few Horrors to ruin your day, lol. That spell cost me a game in a local tourney when my Chaos Warhounds, placed in front of the rest of the army as a missile screen, succumbed to Indigo fire and proceeded to block the advance of my mêlée army for the majority of the game. Ugh... it was a nightmare! :(:laugh:

i love the indigo fire spell especially against night goblins but the spell i most dislike is either eadbutt (just say goodbye to that army standard) or tapdance of gork, gorks warpath. but the spell i have seen used to best effect is in a massive battle when two orc shamens both cast waagh the warboss also called waagh and a whole orc army was in combat in its turn 1 ive never really had too much trouble with any other races magic in this edition although old school arnzipals black horror, the wind of death and curse of yearswere evil

I personally like the necromancy spell curse of years. Nice little spell that wipes out entire units at a time.

For direct damage, the Skaven Plague spell is awesome!

For bound spells, Queen Kalida's Staff is the bomb. Not only can it do direct damage, but it will prevent the unit from moving in the next turn. That, is awesome!

I agree with Gork's Warpath - I wiped out the crew of three of my Friend's Empire war machines in one turn.
Vaul's Unmaking makes me want to grit my teeth, though.

I still remember with dread the old high elf spell that could move hills, not the sort of thing you'd want to face when you have loads of artillery.

Assault of stone, a true classic. Everyone would steer clear of the hills for miles. It was hilarious watching people deploy their armies to avoid it. It was almost more effective as a threat than as an actual spell. The 5th ed plague spell was possibly the nastiest piece of magical shennanigans I ever saw, and funny to boot. I also really enjoy gobbling down warpstone to really power up those spells...

Pits of shades is a pretty destructive spell. If your army is a slow army it can be a character and special unit killer.

Indigo Fire, Titillating Delusions, Gork's Warpath. My favorite spells. It's always fun to see your opponent's most powerful unit march backwards into his army. Or halfway across the board.

yes but a high elf mage automatically come with drain magic so it can make other wizads be appsolutly useless. S I think that is one of the best for what it comes with, for free!

As a magic-heavy player, I have to say drain magic. Just one of the reasons I'm joining the bedrobes club. Go HE!
