Now that AoS has set WHFB free, I no longer feel the need to play the most recent edition. I thought I'd try out some more relaxed gaming against some old friends using some old lists. We toyed with 4th, but agreed that 6th Edition was probably our favourite. The only amendment from 8th which we are ret-conning into the usual 6th Ed. rules will be the step-up rule - i.e. the front rank always gets to fight back (but no supporting attacks).

He's bringing High Elves (and likely with plenty of cavalry and magic). I definitely want to use my newly finished Egrimm van Horstmann model and have tried to make the magic items faithful as possible.

Huh, interesting choosing the Step Up rule as the one to keep. 6th edition will likely be wildly different with that in place, so feel free to share your experience with it.

I honestly don't remember running into that many units of Warhounds in 6th, but that may well have just been because they were pewter then and are plastic now. Other than that, looks solid (from what I can remember from 6th) with the classic 2+4+2 Power Dice of a magic-lord led army and scroll caddy (though in this case a lvl 2 one).

Your army is illegal. You can't mix marks unless your general has the mark of chaos undivided. Egrimm van Horstmann should have the skull of katam.
