What army do you think was the worst hit in the recent Edition? Which has gotten worse the most?

Well WE cetainly have been hit hard and are now one of the weaker armies around... but I dont think they lost a huge amount from the new rules, they just got hit from middle-low to low, so I dont think they are the worst hit.

Brets didnt come off too bright either, but I have the sneaky feeling that clever Bret players will still muddle through: their cav is harder to use but I think it may still work, and lots of peasants, trebuchets and men at arms will help them out. Again, they took a hit but not the biggest hit.


So, the army I recon that got hit harder then any others- Daemon of Chaos
Daemons were the undisputed kings of 7th, but I really dont think they'll be anywhere near as good under 8th ed rules. PBs basically dont work anymore, blocks of horrors are pretty pointless (unless you go for a mega block to fill core and get you a Lv4 caster) and all the 'big hitters' wont have ranks to stop enemies being steadfast, so may be hard to beat/kill, but wont just knife through an army like they used to.

You forget, those elves are sneaky... they stuck their (spare) knives on poles that they cunningly camoflaged as bushes just in front of their lines- the knives hit the horses, and any that survive manage to carry the knights in to strike the elves with their lances. Damn those cunning elves :p
