  • Quote from Masamune88: “@ferny we had this fight in the 2.0 rejig. BGT has LG as a hero cult of guardians for the throne and FW as quasi priests/monks. Unlikely to change unless BGT is willing to change direction and fluff that they have already created. ” where is this info stored?! Have I just missed it or is it not publically available? This is exactly the sort if snippet we need...!

  • Regardless of whether fnarrs proposals are more or less specialised infantry, they make sense. Bodyguard on LG is legacy, superfelous to their all-rounder/monster killer role, and potentially contributes to their over representation. A switch to a more focussed monster killer role would avoid a nerf (something like the alpha Carnos extra charge range?). They become woodsmen and hunters, not varangian (body)guard. But bodyguard on your tank unit makes sense, and would help balance the scales betw…

    You quoted me but didn't actually answer the question - do you play other armies and how vulnerable do you find their generals?

  • Health Points of Vampires

    ferny - - Vampire Covenant (VC)

    Post

    Grouchy, just for frame of reference, do you actively play other armies? How vulnerable do their characters feel to you? Having switched from elves to VC I'm loving vampires, though I tend to make a necro master for march reasons. Daliances with beast herds and dwarfs also felt pretty resilient. Lots of armies I've not tried though, not sure if empire or demons for eg would feel that tough.

  • Looks really really nice, I'd love to have these on my table (and on display).

  • I love the idea of having these guys ranked up as slinks and saurus and having a full Dino army! Quote from jirga: “Found this site by chance. hlbs-redux.co.uk/#/ They have models which are useful for saurian players. Mainly different mount options. Prices are relatively low. 20£ for the Trex and 1£for the smallest critters. s542257983467318700_p61_i31_w2560.jpeg s542257983467318700_p64_i28_w2560.jpeg s542257983467318700_p67_i28_w2560.jpeg s542257983467318700_p66_i28_w2560.jpeg s5422579834673187…

  • @Alexwellace which army are you taking?

  • I want to like this - it's big, interesting and has cool ideas... but it's just such a wierd mix of styles. If it fits anywhere I think it's more dark gods, but probably with some sort of converting. Not sure I'd want to buy it and validate the style though, even if I could find a use for it.

    Quote from IntrigueAtCourt: “ok.. out of the other 15 books, which top tier lords does our spear prince beat? ” is that his role though? He still threatens plenty of lords with high agility and lots of decent (but not earthshaking) attacks. But he ratchets up CR, even on a small frontage, helps finish units and combats faster, and perhaps most importantly, zones (or anti-zones?) excellently. There's plenty of units that can't dare charge his if he's in it, in a way which a regular lord with fewe…

  • Quote from DanT: “does vary a bit from list to list, based on how proactive my list is, but to put it simply I've recently espoused a "15-20-10" approach: Play for 15, look for the 20, ensure the 10. Play for 15: small vp win+good chance of mission. I.e. look to get the mission whilst giving yourself more chances to get VPs than the opponent. Sometimes this "play for 15" is "play for 12", i.e. draw the mission and get small VP win. Look for the 20: moment of important luck or error from opponent…

  • Dan - question in relation to your lists, match ups and general approach. Do you always set out to get a big win (20, or 15+, or whatever might be considered big), no matter what army, objectives or opponent you face? Or do you sometimes decide you have to play safe (unless opportunity presents), and play for a small win, draw or small loss? I ask because I think a consideration of lists, unit value, and playstylss which is often ignored is whether you aim to win a tournament or simply not do ba…

    @Arturius

  • I really want to find something I like about these models but the more I look the less I like. I almost think they'd be better as some sort of wdg models, but there's much nicer options imo. And by and large, whether the aesthetic is to my taste for fantasy, I've quite liked most of the non stormcast releases.

    Quote from Giladis: “A conclave representing the geomancers guild. ” Could you signpost me to published fluff on this please?

  • pretty much fully agree with that hristo. First @DanT agreeing totally with you, now me. It must definitely be end times! Quote from Fnarr: “In reality, smart balancing involves knowing "choke points" in army construction, and how a list fits together. ” having been privy to some internal discussion within the team, this is one of the areas I feel @Calcathin excelled at, and I now see @Vespacian also making the cases.

    My theory is that it is more inefficient if you're a good player, because you're paying an extra 35pts for something which you don't need, as good positioning will keep your eagle chaff safe til you need it. However, if you're not such a strong player, and you'd value the safety net of the extra wounds to allow you to put them a bit more in the open, correct positional mistakes, or just a general buffer, then it isn't a huge additional outlay to compensate. That said, hbe are not a cheap army so…
