Why do you want a close-combat Wraith anyways? All of them have the potential to die in one unlucky round of combat.

D8 and 2 fate will see them surviving at least one turn and then you can just withdraw them and use them for purely harrasing. Also, KoU isn't always best against heroes as he can only fight them on even terms but if you charge with Khamul against a transfixed hero, even if he's just on a horse, you can properly hammer them.

Ok, so they fight for one turn, what's the point in that? You're not going to kill anyone worth while killing with any Nazgul in one round of combat. Why not just transfix the enemy model than swamp him with Orcs or a Troll?

I'm not saying that's how they should always be used and you'll be very unlucky if they can only last 1 round of combat. It's just simply another option and also that way you'll be able to knock down your target as sensible players will put their nazgul on a horse. Also, mobbing them with trolls and orcs is not so easy if the hero causes terror (like many elf heroes).

Terror test against someone who's transfixed? You'd have to be really scared not to fight someone who can't fight back! :lol:

Once you download it, select an army and then start selecting units. Put a "1" in boxes with desired wargear, and also a number in the box for how many of that unit.

yes i must pass on my thanks for this as well, gw havent responded to the 2 emails ive sent asking questions that this forum has answered and more... happy days..

Does a vault warden team count as both dwarves? 2 in a team for the points value in the army builder so 4 teams of 8 models would be 100 points?

Are the rules for the Galadrhim army anywhere on the web? I know it was in a WD, but since moving, it's post/packed away somewhere.

Sorry - I was unclear. The rules are indeed with the model profiles, but there was a full army list article for SBG in WD a year or two ago when they released the plastic Galadrhim.

The full SBG army list is on the GW site too (it's the same article)
