BDD 292 – Top 5 Lord Choices

Top 5 Lord Choices

There has recently been a survey carried out on the various forums to poll warhammer players of their opinions of power levels and balance within warhammer.

The results have returned quite a few interesting sets of stats that will make for some good Daily Episodes, particularly the Top 5’s.

So in the first from this series I cover the Top 5 Lord Choices.

  1. Slann
  2. Daemon Prince (WOC)
  3. Dark Elf Supreme Sorceress
  4. Vampire Lord
  5. Ogre Slaughtermaster

And an honourable mention to the lowly Dwarf Daemonslayer who finished in last place!

BDD 267 – Painting Inspiration from Warhammer Achievements

Painting Inspiration from Warhammer Achievements

On todays episode I talk about the ideas painting inspiration that I picked up at the Warhammer Achivements 3 event a couple of weeks ago.

You often hear people saying they saw an army and was inspired by it, but then you don’t hear how exactly they were inspired or how they tried to implemnt that inspirtaion in their own armies.

I talk about exactly what I saw that inspired me and how I am going to try and put it to good use in my Chaos Dwarves army.

BDD 252 – Top 5 Wamachines

Top 5 Warmachines

This week the Garagehammer podcast talked about their top 5 war machines. This sparked some discussion on twitter as to what is the best warmachine for the points. In this episode I give my reply to the garagehammer Top 5.

5. Magma Cannon

st5 D3 Wounds. A huge range for what is a flame cannon on crack. 24 + Artillery dice + Template. Access to an engineer is also a huge bonus

4. Warp Lightening Cannon

The dreaded WLC has been a long time friend and foe of mine. Having played with and against this warmachine I have a healthy respect for the high strength template landing in a unit. The fact that the shots are always no armour save and always do d6 wounds makes up for the random strength value.

3. Brettonian Trebuchet

No frills just high strength. Cheap and strength 5 all the time compared to the dwarf grudge thrower that comes in at an extra

2. Doom Diver

80 points. st5. No Armour Save. In the days of Empire, Warriors and lots of other high armoured targets. Not much more to add here other than its really cheap and when its dies no orc units will be bothered. One of my faves.

1. Dwarven Cannon.

This has a massive list of reasons that it is number 1. 30 points cheaper as standard than the Empire version and when runed up is massivly reliable and accurate. Also has s ton of options for fun runes that while not the optimal choice can make for some interesting gems. They also get access to a 4th wound with the engineer upgrade. Overall this guy is hard to beat in a straight up warmachine challenge.

“Back in 2011, a guy named Dave Hiatt made a documentary called “Hammers of War,” which can be found on Youtube, for his film school senior project. He only had 17 minutes to show a 40K tournament and the passion the players had for their hobby, which turned out to not be enough time. Skip ahead to 2013, Dave and his brother Dan are looking to make a feature length sequel called “The Love of War.” They’re looking for help funding the project through Indiegogo. Please search for “The Love of War” on Indiegogo.com, and if you like what you see, donate to the cause, and share the link with your friends!” All help, whether financially or otherwise is greatly appreciated.”
