if i charge it from the air with a flier, is their still the charge penalty?  i.e. no charge bonus?

The way it reads, yes. I agree with that, as the tendrils are assumed to be 3-dimensional, writhing and wriggling in all directions.

Sick, icky, and disgusting...ain't he the cutest thing...I will love him and pet him and squeeze him and name him George and stroke his little tendrils....

ok, i hope i didnt miss it, but how big is this thing?  Dog I guess ill just have to hover and through javelins at ya.  this is the last thing I need another big beastie to deal with from the devout.  it will be fun, terrifying but fun.  if we find any weaknesses we will be sure to share it, maybe dog will break it out in a couple weeks when we play.  ill start searching my armies now for something to counter it with.

Well it's immune to most missiles, so you'll have to find some brave squad or steadfast individual to bring this beastie down.  It can be done.

right, but handheld missles are defined as bow, crossbow, handheld crossbow, composite bow, slings etc.  not thrown weapons like spears and javelins correct?  at least that is how i have played it.  i need to bring my book back up to the office

I'm not entirely up to speed on this either, so I'm goin' with my gut, so I'll have to go back to the FAQ too.   ::)

From the prisons they came. The worst cutthroats and criminals of the mighty Emperor's forces; Ogres, Orcs, and a single Goblin - Achmed Jah Maggotamon. Twelve was their number, a number derived from the prophecies of the Samura; the inner circle of of the Alchemist's Guild. Lead by one of the most ruthless and astute of the Emperor's Deathseekers - Reichman al Jafar. Given the promise of a pardon for their crimes, these twelve along with Reichman al Jafar are tasked with killing the abomination of rotting flesh that threatens the alliance against the encroaching darkness.

Archer faced this thing once at his place, in what is becoming a rare victory for Slater over him.  He seems to have mastered Chronopia and has handed me many defeats.  Sigh.


I **thought** I recognized that @#$%^&@#$!! model.  The Magister has decreed that any enemy commander caught using said model in his army will be used as a practice pell for the Macemen....

 Or a target dummy for the X-Bowmen.

Really.


As for lately, dude...  I've merely found where my ju-ju went since I've lost the last two UWZ games I've played.  And thats kinda nice; I have long been a Chrono doormat with my Firstborn, with most of my wins coming with a borrowed SoK army until recently.

Last game, two things happened- 1 was I made you blink... and numbah 2 was you did not go for the throat in the right fashion.  But that takes practice with that army....  I know how I would have whupped on me with that army of yours and it would have taken three turns.

  Yep, I am worried about that Devout list.  Very Worried.

As for facing this thing...  I suspect it will require some very steadfast troops.

O.K., what all can the charnal golem absorb.  I mean, I don't really see it being able to absorb an Adamanite Golem, or anything else that is not flesh and bone.  Speaking of bone, what about Risen? Is there enough there to absorb?  What if the creature is classified as elemental? I assume that those models don't count.  This would go a long way to balancing this very cool and very deadly power.
