  • They don't, since Cobalt Clubs aren't Hand Weapons. ce58d3f092.png It needs to be noted, for example: a7b62b073f.png IMO Rending > Mixoatl because of their lowly AP1. High Armour becomes really hard to deal with.

  • Quote from Peacemaker: “Any good caiman models out there? Best I can see in the miniatures library is the Warmahordes ones. ” Lost Kingdom and Last Sword, both started out as Kickstarter projects.

  • Quote from Traumdieb: “Does altered sight of cosmology affect Aspen Bows or great Aspen Bow? If there is a mage with shamanism attribute on him vs. a slayer dwarf. Is the mage wounded on 4 or 5? ” 1) It does. Cosmology's Altered Sight improves weapons' Aim by 1. Aspen Bow and Great Aspen Bow always hit on it's Aim. f6efbb23e0.png 2) Priority of Modifiers: when several modifiers within a group are to be applied to a roll, the lowest chance of success has priority. So Seeker will wound on 5s regar…

  • Opponent army: HE Score: 19:1 MvP: Wildsh!t Captain (helped taking out all 3 Reapers and allowed Tauro Bow to kill a Master Mage in T5 because of Cover denying rule), Cuatl (Pyro, obviously), both Sentries (one shotted Elyrians and Great Eagle with Rocks, game losing mistakes actually) LvP: Caimans (literally did nothing, moved like 8" total)

  • Quote from nobeernoplaying: “Why shouldn't we create a real roadblock? Remove crush attack, reduce attacks to 1, no upgrades, change res5 to 6, health points from 5 to 7 and add unbreakable (and perhaps telepathic link). It will not kill anything, but it gets a role in the army. ” Because it's the dead end of designs and arguably the most boring "role" unit can have. I can guarantee unbreakable will sky rocket it's price it won't be even close to being playable, as we've already seen - and with …

  • Arc of the Horned Serpent Deity: Venomous Tide proved to be pretty irrelevant in a real game. A couple of dead infantrymen doesn't mean much, if anything at all. +3 CR seems good at first, until you realize Swarms bleed CR like crazy - Def3 R2, Stompable. It won't change much by itself I'm afraid. Volcanic Engine: Salvo within 6"/12" might be too strong for just one/two veil tokens. You have to get a 300+ pts model though, so there's that. I really like the idea of burning aura in b2b, don't thi…

    Quote from Herminard: “While the number of fallpits are many - I concur that this list contains a huge load of units that should indeed receive meaningful buffs ” Could you elaborate, please? Is this about tarpits in general or just a couple of under performing units happened to be in there?

    Another irrelevant comparision made in the shadows of "vacuum realms"... Enjoy fellow Saurian Ancients players! QGcBeLI.png And as usual, a little bit of not-so-deep commentary, skinks only: -Start body count: 5 models below average (-25%), lowest of all the units (while their price is pretty close to average). -Maks body count: 15 models below average (-27%), lowest of all the units. -Base ppm: ~2,3pts above average (+33%). -Next ppm: ~0,83pt above average (+12%). In short - less models for mor…

    Quote from DanT: “[...]Quote from Dancaarkiiel: “I do hope it's a joke Single player in a single event justifying current price of an item while it has far less than 10% pick rate, seems like it. ” You have seen the aggregated data presumably given your tag?I have not. Nor was I advocating a specific course of action re: this item. I was merely commenting on the sociology of the t9a forums. I do not object to data driven discounts, indeed I was one of the drivers of the project doing things this…

    Quote from DanT: “The man himself says he has no bad matchups with his list and you guys want to give it a discount? ” I do hope it's a joke Single player in a single event justifying current price of an item while it has far less than 10% pick rate, seems like it. imo Wildfire is fine as an item, just a little bit overpriced (Elu's, Viper's lel). But idea of granting +1 to hit (Spearbacks) and Flammable (Salamanders) looks really good. Perhaps you pick one effect to keep it from being a powerho…

    Imo javelin is inferior to blowpipe because of one reason - poison. And bpipe has twice the shots, you just fish for poisons and that's it. Someone made an interesting solution, make baseline hunters with javelins cheaper, bpipe up to compensate. Price for bpipes stays more or less the same while javelins are considerably cheaper. Guerilla skirmishers need a slight drop to make them viable anyway.

    @berti So you basically want to buff something while completely trashing something else. Why would buffing bad units while nerfing something (arguably fine/mediocre) else be a thing in a first place? IMO seekers are completely fine as they are, could even use 1ppm reduction. t. seasoned Dwarf killer because half my club is playing DHs

    Captain with Hero's Heart is vulnerable to fluffing dices more than anything in this army. Def4 R3 HP3 is really bad for defensive stats, his only saving grace is armour 5 - or even 4 if he's rolling with PWeapons and Agi6. Excellent for really small units, like chaff. You'll be much better with either naked, Egg or Wildfire Captain. I admit though, he's kinda fun to play with and I field him every now and then. Quote from Pellegrim: “Its the coolest though plus 9 attacks versus designated is no…

  • Quote from ahk3927: “Question on a Character mounted on a 50x50 base inside a 25 mm sized unit. Since the character is occupying the space of the 2nd rank, would the rank and file troop behind the character gets to support attack or no? Thanks! ” It can't attack, unless in Line (old Horde) formation - 8 models or more. It's still considered to be in 3rd rank, Character is in 1st and 2nd ranks - he doesn't form one by himself. RnF models determine the ranks. (Hidden Content)

    Quote from Ipower: “[...] Also why should grasp, basic Ramphodon riders, sun tablet not get increases? ” Why would Grasp get an increase though? Based on some data, Cuatl has ~80% pick rate. Half of the Cuatls are given Grasp - that's 50% of Cuatl lists, 40% of total lists. Far below the half, does that justify the increase? IMO issue is with other disciplines - they're either completely unplayable (Weaver) or just overpriced (Reality, Knowledge). Agreed on Rhamphodons, imo slight increase is in…
