  • Quote from youngseward: “In retrospect I should have taken 3 cyclops instead of double gortach. ” Castle??

  • Quote from TowerGuard712: “Acadamy units: Can cumulate and add their rank bonuses to combats they are involved in up to maximum of +3 total combined (including non-academy rank bonuses). Example 1: Unit of executioners with 1 rank bonus is together in combat with an academy unit with 3 rank bonus. You can add +2 of the academy unit's rank bonus to the executioners to a maximum of +3. Example 2: Two academy units and 1 TowerGuard unit, each with 1 rank bonus, are fighting an enemy unit together. …

  • Quote from Herminard: “The gullible fool even thought Citizen Spears are playable ” ..How dare you! As the DE ACS i make it my point to know that Citizen Spears are the best spears!

  • Like I don’t personally enjoy doing a moderator role since I’m all for speech, but you guys really gotta stop trying to justify or implement a slave unit. Again I’m ambivalent personally on the issue, so this is not my bias against slaves - just the design and background team don’t support it. So please I’m happy to open a Wishlist thread but yeah very likely a forever Wishlist item.

  • Quote from shadoweyed: “but make the blank Academy thing be something along the lines of always counting as having +1 Rank Bonus from what they have (Max +4 for CR) meaning MSU feels bigger in combat, and MMU or Max Unit still retains a bonus, that may have diminishing returns. ” I'd actually be keen to see Academy Units being able to share ranks when involved in the same combat. IE: Coordinated Offense: A unit with at least one Full Rank MAY count as having the same number of Full Ranks as anot…

  • Quote from Pellegrim: “Quote from Giladis: “DE raiding is the result of geography and the economic model they maintain, a different location would not have resulted in the development of a naval tradition. Even though Spartans are one of the point of inspiration we are not copying them directly. Furthermore Spartans didn't need to go raiding across the sea because everything they wanted to could have been reached by land. ” Cool, that makes sense, from a certain perspective. Raiding is geographi…

  • Quote from GSbasic: “Quote from YungPabby: “I would rather have like a hostage unit than a slave unit that you could kill as the DE to enrage the enemy for a turn but you could also save as the enemy to get their points. ” Interesting idea! What would really be cool is if you could upgrade a unit corsairs with “slaving nets”. Could be something triggered by a leadership test (to stick to guidelines) or something that allows you to stop a unit from marching for a turn or something like that. ” I …

  • Quote from Eol: “I think that Handlers must enhance HtH skills for beasts, not only Mv and LD. To battle beastmasters must choose their most skilled and deadly beasts. ” And interesting dynamic could be that Monsters, become uncontrolled if out of range of a Beastmaster therefore granting it like maybe, frenzy, battlefocus and +1 attack but suffers -2 DS. However when in range it gains hatred and re-roll 1s to Wound. So it’s not so much they are pivotal to use Monsters but by flirting being in r…

  • Quote from Folomo: “Remember this comparison considers all elven FAB, not the current slim versions. So the Swordmasters will probably lose some offensive power when the HbE book gets redesigned. ” I’m probably a bit touchy on scaling other books to meet ours, I don’t want a us vs them approach. But as @Uthegen pointed previously “how it’s hard for DE to have a unit that out powers SM and still being balanced” being what the guideline is saying I’ll have to take a different tact. If we simply ca…

  • Quote from Uthegen: “Reading this while thinking about Swordmasters (mostly seen as too fragile by HBE players) and Spears (which are already quite deadly with their 4 ranks) makes me fear for our game play. ? ” So you fear for DE is gonna in trouble because even HE "the pinnacle of elven defensive abilities" have the most fragile of units ie Swordmasters but discount other units like their 2+ cav in core, 2+/6++ special cav, 4+ Aegis Flame Wardens, 3+ armour save Lion Guard in close combat I'm …

  • Quote from matrim: “Is it possible to get an artefact like BH, VS to mitigate against first turn enemy shooting?? ” The theft of other artifacts is fluffy..

  • Also, regarding assassins and the idea of duels... When you’re forced to accept a challenge that you have no odds of winning there’s no “honour” at all. When a dragon rider gets singled out by a Champion we know that’s an exploit and not really “honourable combat”. So let’s first agree that a duel has nothing to do with honour, and the assassin forcing someone to have to fight them in a duel - has nothing to do with bravery, chivalry or bravado. The assassin has simply caught its “prey” with the…

  • I mean, I’ve sorta in the past laid out how I think the three races can sort out their monsters and have some individual design space. Obviously this would mean HE get the most ridden monsters, SE get independent monsters and DE get ones that need to be “controlled” which I know a lot of people see this as detrimental but again it’s all about the pts

  • Probably an unmounted version would be a big leap but I know most of you are touchy about that subject - cause it’d needed to be babysitted and what not plus foot characters are no good etc etc.

  • Hi guys, please again keep feedback in feedback thread and ideas in the idea thread... I don’t want to go all “noir” on your posts

  • @duxbuse so you want Mage Blight Gremlins sorta deployment?
