  • Quote from DanT: “If my sole goal was winning, they would have been taken every time I went to an event with ID. ” Out of curiosity, what else would make this list for you? Or if you prefer: What would be your list if your only goal is to win an event? I'm quite sure it would be very different from mine, as I recall you for example prefering an Alchemy Master. Neither he or Immortals would make my list for that purpose alone.

  • Quote from namadeva: “What in the world prevents them from giving the Karkadan that deserved 4 hp? ” Right now? The book being locked :). Back then? I don't know, I assume together with increases similarties to the Chimera (which doesn't always fly) it would also open up the question why Chosen Knights don't have 4 hitpoints, I mean they're riding Karkadan's too. And "normal" mounts don't increase hitpoints for other armies. Putting a Marshal on a horse doesn't give him more HP. So one could ask…

  • Quote from WhammeWhamme: “Dan said non GW. I don't think anyone thinks GW Immortals are particularly good. ” I think @Kathal had some use of them or at least considered them. I tested them aswell, both with and without Overlords. S6 is/was so much better in the UD filled meta with R5 Tomb Reapers. However I never quite could make them work with their movement and they did die to easily for my taste.

  • Quote from Laksen: “ty cool about the general, have been playing him wrong for some time ” Just to be clear, the model will have it's own dominion even if it's not the general :). So if you have a Scourge and a Sentinel and your Sentinel is your general, then: -Scourge will always have Dominion of Wrath. -Sentinel will always have Dominion of Sloth -The R&F units in one unit chosen at the start of your turn (in range of the IP of your general) will benefit from Dominion of Sloth. Quote from …

  • Quote from Laksen: “dont know if asked before but here goes. About the Scourges Rage ability, says I lose an attack if it gains a HP, how is that posible (to heal it I mean) ? Does the Dominion also arget the general him self of only the R&F? Does the Hope Harvester get -1 to-hit from piveting? Cheers Laksen ” 1) Because "Rage" is an ability shared by several armies and is worded exactly the same everywhere to not create confusion. I don't think theres any way for DL to make it happen. Every…

  • Quote from Hotelalex87: “it does not matter if it's orcs, human pokemon or unicorns as slaves, but if they lose the "vorn to fight" rule they will be too bad to play ” Wanna bet? I believe in the LAB-team and am willing to bet against you. For a beer and the next tournament we'll see each other!

  • Quote from Shane: “Quote from lawgnome: “Quote from Jomppexx: “Quote from Shako: “Quote from Jomppexx: “So slaves/vassals can be of multiple different races? Will slaves also have more weapon options? Wondering as OnG can get crossbow orcs in core. ” Yes to the first question. But no special rules for different races. So whether yours are human, elf, orc or whatever slaves, doesn't matter, same rules and stats.Weapons, according to the guidelines Slaves should not offer significant damage output…

  • Quote from Grouchy Badger: “This actually reminded me of something I wrote down: When are we goinf to get cheaper/more magical items? Something that improved vampiric, adds a single attack, can change what their Awaken unit is, etc. ” The only way for army specific items to come are with the respective LAB. However, since the arcane compendium isn't fixed (and in fact does receive an update shortly) it could theoretical be possible for a new enchant adding a single attack. I don'T know whether n…

But no special rules for different races. So whether yours are human, elf, orc or whatever slaves, doesn't matter, same rules and stats. Weapons, according to the guidelines Slaves should not offer significant damage output and they're definitely not trusted with ranged weapons. So those are out and I w…

  • Well, did my first game with those points. Had to try out the double engineer, double rocket battery. Got the right matchup for it: Zombiedragon, 2 Shrieking Horrors, 2 Altar of Undeath.. They definitly felt really powerful and threatend a lot. Still more damage was done by the insane magic. Wrote a fun report here for those interested in a bit of fluff: A beginners journey into the inferno

  • Quote from YeahGucciFrisur: “Quote from Shako: “Quote from Jocker: “Hi EoS fellows. When will update form EoS? December is far no? ” The beta will be released soon.Then somewhen in december, the beta will end and there's going to be an update for all armies. ” how soon is soon? ” I wouldn't be surprised if it's here before the next weekend, nor if it's the weekend after. That is just my guess. The finishing work is being done right now but I have no clue how long that or the layout will take.

    Quote from tcho: “Hello, Do you have news for the date of release VS army book ? I have see multiple army book are updated yesterday but no VS I m little impatient ! ” There's no date scheduled yet. Short answer: When its ready. Long answer: Soon according to the news. They're currently finishing the work on the numbers as far as I know, after that some layout still has to be done. I would not be surprised to see them next weekend, but wouldn't be surprised if it takes 2 weeks. Take this as a to…

  • Quote from supermercado08: “I understand it's a crap ton of work but maybe just a little info on the intended direction would help. I'm just under the impression the "data" is how many times a unit shows up on a list and the size of the unit ” Data is also the surveys which where held. The community survey asking about internal balance, aswell as an expert-survey asking the same. Data driven approach doesn't mean that the data and the underlying formular have been/are being blindly followed. Quo…

  • Quote from Herminard: “So the 5/6/7 dogs that nobody takes got more expensive - the 8 that everybody takes because of WDG core become 1 (lol) point cheaper - and the 9+ that is utterly meaningless to take got cheaper. Might as well make the 8+ of dogs the core unit and delete the 5 of dogs in special. ” Data from 99 armylists disagrees with you that nobody takes them. Units of 5-7 (I assume mostly exact 5) have been taken 43 times in 31 armylists. However units of 8+ (I assume mostly exact 8) ha…

  • Quote from namadeva: “Is there a chance that we see Flails again for Barbarians? Or will you take it from the VS as well? Cheers, ” Since WotDG are in gold, you won't see them before 3.0 / the next WotDG LAB. So no chance for the next couple of years. Whether VS will still have them is up to their LAB team once that exists and they're working on design.

  • Quote from Jocker: “Hi EoS fellows. When will update form EoS? December is far no? ” The beta will be released soon. Then somewhen in december, the beta will end and there's going to be an update for all armies.

  • Quote from Inn0c: “I dont understand: Is this new update a beta? or are the point changes final (until next years update)? ” It is a beta. The other armies, alongside magic items and possible changes to the magic lores, will receive theirs soon (I do not know how soon, maybe 1-2 weeks?). This beta will lasts till roughly end of the year, at which points theres gonna be a fixed update after all the feedback is collected. That final update will then lasts until the next beta starts (roughly this t…

  • Quote from squalie_SK: “An already expensive mediocre unit just got an INCREASE and your suggestion is to play a few games and see how it goes? Strange advice indeed. You're right though - I may be pleasantly surprised that more expensive Immortals just got better, lol. ” I didn't say you should play the games with lists as close to your old lists as possible, did I? There are new combinations avaiable, test them! For the record: I said I don't understand every price increase/decrease either. Im…
