Hey guys, I've been looking for years for photos of Rob Lane's seaguard army from the back end of 5th edition and the beginning of 6th. His all conquering all cav army from 6th is pretty well documented and the photos are on CMON, and I've managed to find a page on the seaguard army using the wayback machine but I can't find photos. I have this distant memory of seeing it on the old GW website years and years ago and loving it, really want to find some pictures. It was called "Lord Alassar's Revenge" if that helps, would really appreciate it if anyone could help, thanks!

The cavalry army:

Me too. He ran the LSG army before the 6th Edition HE book didn’t he? I remember him being severely unimpressed with the loss of second rank shooting in there!

Your cav army photo is not showing up for me. Oh and I’ll PM you.

Did it work this time?

Thanks for the PM man :)

Oh cool that must have been great! Were you in the tourney scene back then? I heard he sold it years ago, so I'm guessing it's still in circulation somewhere. Yeah I think he ran it using the ravening hordes list, maybe the back end of 5th too I'm not sure. Losing the 2nd rank of shooting really sucked...was a strange decision as it was hardly op.

The 2nd rank of shooting wasn't really OP, but High Elves in 5th edition were (severely) so when they moved to 6th they just took every thing away.

You’re welcome.

My first Warhammer tournament was the 2001 Pompey Pillage which was won by this army. My first game (8-12 loss to VC’s!) was vs a clubmate of Rob Lane’s, he was playing next to us.

The Ravening Hordes 2 list was interesting. I guess it still had double-rank shooting for the LSG and it must have been the official list for several months. I used the equivalent Wood Elf list for a year or two until they updated it in White Dwarf. I was not pleased to see my converted chariot become illegal!
