  • Infernal Dwarf Book Snippet

    DanT - - Infernal Dwarves (ID)

    Post

    Quote from TheChange: “Neither do I expect them to be Wizard Masters, but I don’t like the idea even if they would be Wizard Apprentices. it does not fit the idea I have of ID. ” I sympathise with this view. But didn't this discussion already happen a few weeks/months ago? Maybe I am misremembering.

    Quote from Honeym: “Easy easy... as Said: Really appriciate the work and Im Not implying any sort of incompetence. Im just saying that sometimes Its hard to Answer quistions without knowing the complete background. Just trying to help. ” I didn't object to what you were saying. I was trying to give you more of the background

    Quote from Glonojad: “@DanT well I kmow people who wait half of a year to join the team, no wonder it's short on volunteers... ” I cannot speak for HR and haven't been part of that team. I do know that I have personally seen people applying who are manifestly unsuitable. I have no idea if this applies to the people you are referring to of course. It's easy to criticise the project, and imply malice and incompetence. My personal experience of most of the top level staff is that neither is the cas…

    Quote from Honeym: “Quote from Klexe: “Quote from Honeym: “when they change in the AB, they could easily create a post in each forum with the simple facts of why they did as they did. Then we have something to compare to, when we test the army: Example: We raised the point cost for each additional x because of z. Then we play test and is able to tell if z is a reasonable argument for the point increase of x. @Klexe - can you make something like the above written happen, so we are not just guessi…

    DanT - - Special Rules

    Post

    Quote from CariadocThorne: “Quote from DanT: “So I don't believe any simplistic "I prefer this version because situation X or principle Y" can ever really be a meaningful discussion. And to have the discussion in the depth it requires would take a lot of text ” Why not? Surely it's worth discussing whether people prefer a degree of parity between stats, or keeping stats like OS/DS as less meaningful and less granular than stats like S and R. ” Right, but this is a huge change. Every army book wo…

  • Quote from Litoperez: “Can you explain me how can it be,??? we are a bottom tier army but anyway continue to get price increases????? while all the elves get cheaper and cheaper??? Is because we dont cry enough? How can it be that if we get a worse stank, it could remain in the same price? ” You are conflating multiple things here. I don't have time to split them all apart. I will return later if I have time.

  • Quote from Litoperez: “Quote from DanT: “After much thought over the last few years, I think the tank should move like the ID engine. This makes it a fairer piece to play against. ” if that hapens it should drop in price to around at least 100 points. ” I strongly disagree. I do think that such a change might be enough to stop the relentless price increases though.

  • FWIW, my view on flaggies is: Flaggies work with altar. Altar works with flaggies. I don't think either really work super well in a list without the other.

  • After much thought over the last few years, I think the tank should move like the ID engine. This makes it a fairer piece to play against.

  • Quote from arwaker: “Wow, EoS players claiming one of their units is over performing, even if it is seldomly used at all? So much the opposite when you read HE forum, over there something is even considered underpowered when used in majority of the lists. ” Only sensible, reasonable people are allowed in EoS. Oh, except for me of course Seriously though, there are lots of really cool and level-headed people around here. It's a great place to discuss stuff.

  • Aside: (I might be mis-remembering, and it probably isn't worth dredging up things and discussing in detail, I just wanted to make a comment about randomness that is relevant to the balance update and might be relevant to the LAB) My impression of earlier in the project's history, is that there was a bit of a push against randomness from some quarters, including some VS people, because it was felt the project didn't price randomness fairly. And if it was priced badly, it was perhaps better if it…

    Quote from sonny1086: “Something similar like WotdG Core would be epic and something i would support in all regards. DL core is too much imho. The task will be to embed these coretroops in Guerilla and Monstermash playstyles. Personally i can hardly imagine how single models monsters or skirmisher will be part of coresection. I am also afraid that Light Cav in core may compete or kill Pteradons and Raptoriders and may become autoinclude. Future will show us. Keep on going. ” *Shrug* A lot will d…

    Quote from CariadocThorne: “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. ” Why? if R=S+1 is enough to be wounded on 5+, why not DS=OS+1 AND armed with hw+sh be enough to be hit on 5+ ” Because. Lol I don't think I have anything further to add to the totality of my other posts in this thread. I would just reiterate…

    Quote from Slayer Zabojcow: “I hope all armybooks will have more choices to fill their core in their LABs. ” I'm pretty sure basically everyone, including most (maybe all) of the high level design staff, want the LABs to have interesting, fun, competitive and fluffy core Certainly that is my impression from my time with the project. And I personally find DL and WOTDG core pretty satisfying

    Quote from Wesser: “Quote from DanT: “Quote from Arthur: “I definitely don't wager this is the new horrible power build, but it feels very unbalanced, and it's so out of tune with everything T9A stands for, that I wanted to raise it as a point. ” I think it is good feedback.Combinations are the hardest thing to account for in a data driven approach, because they are highly non-linear. Pointing out combinations like this for RT to discuss is the kind of reason the beta exists (to my understanding…
