Genius as always!
Right what i thought
Wow man, that's awesome. Not, really this is cool!
This reminds me of one of my friends a few weeks ago, he was fielding Eldar in a giant Apoc game, and, to get more warp charges, he kept on summoning demons of Tzeentch. By the fifth turn, he had over 25 dispelling dice, and my Rune Priest (the only phycer I took) was completely shut down, and my friend was able to cast power after power. I personally don't particularly like the new phycic rules for 7th edition. They're interesting, certainly, and Deamonology is powerful, but, I find that it's far too over-complicated, compared to the simple passing of a Leadership test, and taking a wound on perils that the previous edition was. One of the reasons I play Dwarves in Fantasy is actually to avoid the overly convoluted phycic phase (since Fantasy Dwarves have no phycers.).
was your friend aware that rolling any doubles in the deamon chart yields a perils when using elder?
Probably not, most people don't read ALL the text.
most people read the basic entry:
4-6 generates warp point, double+ 6 = perils
deamon chart : 6- summon a greater deamon of chosen patron
and start either using then, or crying "op, op, i'll never play dis again, nerf, remove, ect...." without reading the FULL text to those spells/psyshic power or rules.
btw, the pink horror squad doesn't fail on any double, so the eldar "just" need to pass the 1st test, then in the following turns let the pinkys do their work (aka, summon their buddys)
on a side note, on fantasy i used to play dwarfs too (long time ago) , used something like 1 flag boy (not real name) with rune +2 dispel, 2 rune priest (one +1 dispel, other rune of balance (aka, give me DAT power dice, i need it for MY poor dispel pool)) and 1 engineer (let just say........ stone throwers are kinda op with runes). funniest game was vs undead, poor guy, he tried and tried, but couldn't summon any extra troops :)
Sure but ghost helm negates that by spending a warp charge.
He never mentioned anything like that, so, I assume that he wasn't using it. Also, I repeatedly pointed out that Eldar summoning demons at all is so, so wrong from a fluff-perspective
Man, why don't you have some comix with ogrins or why you didn't the Horus Heresy comix?
What would he have said if he had been given a warp charge Quote line" My Precious” Then he might start talking to himself.
