    Yea all the things that got hit were over used items. Also, this is a beta phase so let’s get some games in and give some feed back. “My list went up” is incomplete information and we want to pin point why something went up as much as it has. Almost every infantry entry went down.

    I think the double whack on DR is one thing that I will be bringing up for sure. I have somewhat eluded to it already.

    Bummer. My list went down almost 125 points. I must be playing all the wrong stuff haha.

    Great news Dread Lords and Ladies! The anticipated points update is LIVE! And here is what we need. Look them over, ponder them, try to see how external/internal balance is affected. Play some games, try the things you think will no longer work, try some things you’ve never considered until now. Then, once you’ve got a chance to really check, throw that feedback at us. Remember, this is a beta phase to get all the kinks out. I’ll be opening several threads this weekend regarding specific feedbac…

  • I like most of the ideas here! The project is still in the concept phase so specific mechanics have not been fleshed out or discussed but I know the words “versatile” has been used a lot when discussing aux. so that’s pretty similar to most of the ideas posted on here.

  • @Peacemaker I can confirm there will be BOTH elves and monsters in the new book... In all seriousness items/actual mechanics are probably a little bit in the future. I believe the conceptual stage is still going! I’m more interested in what our update will look like.

    I’m not sure what you mean? This thread was created to further engage community hobby aspect. I searched for relevant active threads before creating it. Last activity was March, and therefore over the 4 month threshold I was looking for. Besides, head of ACS wants more engagement from its team members, and for me, hobby talk is the most fun!

    Also keep in mind that the gap between each teir is way lower than ever before. In fact it’s mostly the outliers where you would see any real significant percentile changes. The last 14 man 1 day tournament I went to me and the guy who won it played our DE against each other at the top table, and both our lists were pretty infantry heavy (considered sub par). So data can’t get it perfect. It’s REALLY important that we have realistic ideas of what is considered balanced. I feel for myself that I’…

  • Quote from DarkSky: “Quote from Angord: “What are your thoughts? ” It's a cool and innovative idea. It reminds me a little of some rules I suggested for the Divine Altar rework back in the day. I made a rule something like "on a combined charge, each unit may use the roll of a different unit". It was targeted to minimize the chance of trying a multi-charge and having only one unit succeed (which can be devastating and happens quite often due to the nature of probabilities). On the issue @GSbasic…

  • Im wondering if we will have more luck trying to create better tools for hunting shooting units or clearing bunkers rather than rules that mitigate their effects. It also would fit the guidelines in regards to playing aggressive.

    Great report! I’m slowly building my DL army. It just seems like so much fun to be able to tailor so many different styles of lists with 1 army.

  • Quote from VampsinMD: “@DanT, So am I correct in thinking that most points changes will be made based on the tournament data that is available for us all to see on the army sub-forums? Also, do you know how the project handles points changes as they relate to army identity? e.g. vampire counts and zombies were taken much more than the mean for their categories. Imo that is because they are staples of the army. One who wants to play vampires, typically wants to take a vampire count and if they ar…

    Wow! Your army is beautifully done! I’ve gone with a muddy snow look on my bases (I’m not have the painter you are) but I’m pleased with the stark contrast it creates and it adds to the overall darkened look I like for DE! I’ll post a pic when I have a chance
