  • Quote from namadeva: “Yo! As I was reading through the ID army book, I saw the Disciples of Lugar unit, 5 models for 130 pts... Than I looked at our Fallen unit at 150 pts and in my humble opinion is weaker than those disciples. Any reason why? Cheers, ” Fallen are core right?

  • Can Firebrand swap fireball for hereditary spell? Firebrand big name says: Bearer always knows fireball. No limitation on swapping it though.

(y'might shove them into a meatgrinder but... well, that's IC. "I don't WANT to sacrifice them like this... but needs must") ” You want to keep them alive to sacrifice them to occultism

    Quote from Giblit: “I agree with the idea a goblin gets parry and thus a fighty lord then needs 4s to hit. What, if anything, should be done is still up for discussion so I will throw my idea into the hat as well. I would propose if you have parry, you instead gain distracting. The -1 to hit usually has the same affect as the +3ds but to me it seems simpler. ” I think parry was -1 to hit at one point or it was discussed. Really good on high defense troops as they would get hit on 5+ by more basi…

  • Still your character has better offensive, defensive and agility. Also there is no 1+ armor in ogre army Only way is ghostly guard which is situational. Maybe CL is too expensive but 4HP would not change it. Comparing with a different army is also a fools errand as the units exist in completely different armies. As was said, ogres can even shoot.

Cant kill most characters, cant take return damage with AP3 or more or lethal strike or alchemy, cant brake steadfest and dont deliver any synergy to the rest of troops. I can see that they can charge chaff or some medium threats. But thats it. ” As I look at it now and thinking of games I played, multic…

    Quote from Happy Aspid: “Quote from DanT: “Should e.g. deepwatch by hit on a 5+ by os4 troops? Should e.g. imperial guard with shields or DE infantry with shields or basic dwarfs with shields be hit on a 5+ by os3 troops? *shrug* I would say no to these. ” Chosen on foot with Def9) ” But then they have shields and not killing weapons so I'd be okay with it. Sure they'd be really difficult to kill (marshal and khan hit on 5+ ) but they wouldn't do that much damage back.

  • Good estimations, found out trough google that they are about 6,5cm tall. Too short for giants but I'll keep looking.

  • 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 and they're definitely not trusted with ranged weapons. So th…

  • Quote from MxM: “Honestly I think PWs for Mercs should be free (as their base weapons), and the other weapon should cost a little less, especially GW as they have never been chosen as far as I recall. ” Don't know about free but very cheap. Ironfists are almost a strict upgrade that also increase defense.

  • Because generally you don't see small units of them. They are usually in 5/6+ size units and very rarely 3-4. Just because of the way they are, they must have extra wounds to lose and bigger units get more guys with same special rules (plate, poison). I expect price increase because that has been the way usually, maybe promotes bringing smaller units.

    Paired weapons wouldn't need to change. Ignore parry is still the same effect basically.

    Good thread with a good idea and civil arguments. Following to see where this develops. I would not mind changing parry to +3 defense. This change would have to be very careful to make sure some units don't have parry become completely redundant.

  • Quote from Exalted Champion: “Quote from matrim: “Yeah but the slim book has only Lord(s), chief and sorcerer. I'm sure we could come up with gender neutral for all or feminine title for one of them at least. (Chosen Lord to Valkyrie [feminine] or Doomlord to Unattoned [neutral] for example) ” Seriously? This is a fantasy game. Does the gender-neutralisation not even stop here? Crazy. Im really speechless..... ” Total war warhammer 2 has both male and female dreadlords in dark elf factions. They…

  • Quote from kigraa: “u did exactly the same in TA9. everybody was playing marauders with flails aaaaand its gone ! Chariots in core was amazing, it created a entier new meta. ” You mean broken as balls? Core chariots were really degenerate as it made core entirely chariots and chaff, which really doesn't look like an army at all anymore, more like a random skirmish of single models and low model units. If literally everybody was playing marauders with flails it was probably too good anyway...
