    Stormcast Judicators sold out ??

    I know there's new Stormcast stuff on the way, but I was surprised to see the Stormcast Judicators are listed as Sold Out on the UK GW site. I don't just mean 'temporarily out of stock' - it looks as...

    I much preferred the points percentage system of WFB (and 40k 2nd edition) to the FOC method. If nothing else, the FOC method would surely require maximum unit sizes. Being limited to so many Special...

    Maybe, or maybe they just want to sell Dark Riders (5 per box rather than 8 too), but my real surprise was the Swordmasters surviving, rather than the Glade Riders going.

    You're right that this will be important if you have dice modifiers. I hadn't considered that in earlier comments suggesting that it didn't matter much.

    I don't think it's essential to agree before the game starts - you do have to agree before rolling the damage dice though (but then, you need to do that to know how many dice to roll).

    The d3 is your damage characteristic. I don't really see a problem with that.

    So, if you inflict 3 unsaved wounds, then you roll 3d3 for a total anywhere between 3 and 9.

    That said, if you...
