  • I don't really like the idea of making hindering rules to try and reinforce what is a background\fluff flavor thing. That can be captured in descriptions and design. Like the Git launcher, crazy concept, decent rules (even if it was borrowed from a previous game). I've always seem goblins as vicious, foolhardy (see git launcher) and tricksy. Giving them options like caltrop dropping when fleeing from combat (-2 to enemy pursuit roll or something) gives flavor without crippling.

  • Well again we're not talking about the top dog count with the good items. Anecdotal evidence is just that. Personally i have had those off 4 guys get a wound or two in before and even kill a count wounded by something else earlier. Seriously if you want a vamp with a shield and armor save and your going to ignore some of the benefits your paying for your better off with a BOTD vamp.

  • I believe grouchy has stated this is a secondary build, after the good items are used up. Personally i would use essence of mithral and Tali of shielding To keep the distracting, but thats just me.

  • Quote from Stirnlappenbasilisk: “Quote from Grouchy Badger: “Ya'll are sleepin on close combat lamians. Vampire Count [770pts]: Army General, Commandment, Evocation, Heavy Armour, Lamia Bloodline, Shield, Wizard Adept. Special Equipment: Cursed Medallion, Legend of the Black King, True Thirst - Vampire Counts and Courtiers Only Killed a dwarf king in a duel, two rounds of combat I think. ” No offence but this lady looks awful to me, I mean 3+/4++ without distracting?

  • 75 pts was the upgrade cost for the mount version of court of the damned in 2.0. This could be a copy\paste error when the book was being put back together, hence why no change log. And since there is no change log for an increase in price either i expect the actual intended points is 90 still. However RAW its 75 right now, but the battlescribe editor has it listed as 95pts, saying he was told by a rulebook person that that is what it is supposed to be.

  • This has been asked multiple times now, and i haven't seen an answer. WHAT IS THE ACTUAL PRICE FOR THE BLOOD TIES UPGRADE ON LAMIA COURT OF THE DAMNED FROM SPECIAL (Not the mount)? 75pts? (As listed in book, but no change log) 90pts? (As listed in previous version) 95pts? (As per the mount version, but still no change log for it)

    Would it be possible to eliminate some units by making a cheapish "hero of renown" character with 2 wounds that can pick from a set of unique renown skills that adds a permanent buff to a unit he joins. There-by making the various old regiments of renown creatable with a single entry. (Skills like: access to plate armor or set a unit's strength to 4). These guys could have race upgrades similar to orcs and goblin book.

    According to the battlescribe writer the 75 pts base Lamia blood ties is a typo, that was confirmed with the book writers.

  • There is something to be said of retaining an army's playstyle though. If O&G lost its hordes of cheap but strong glass Canon fighters, and well cheap everything with low leadership I would be upset. Everything is expensive iron orcs now! Bleah...

  • I'm just talking about not invalidating peoples models without sacrificing the idea behind a slave unit. Letting them field the slaves as both 25mm and 20mm for the same unit would allow them to use any infantry they have laying around, including all the orcs they have. Its not about easier, its about letting people use what they have without impacting the balance of what you design.

  • Regarding base sizes. Its entirely possible to include an "upgrade" for free that changes the base size of a unit. Or Maybe start at 25X25 slave, then have a 1pt upgrade to change to 20X20. None of the stats have to change, but all models could be accounted for.

  • Id rocket battery upgrade to bound demon is at 190pts. Should be 130pts

    You know nearly all characters that fight have a paired weapon option. Easy fix if you want to ignore parry....

    All the characters went up 5-10 points. So while it looks like Warcry got free, the points were stealthed back into the characters (even at basic, general, bsb, and wizard it's a 30 point increase, good forbid you took lots of little characters on gnashers and Chariots and such, guess it was overpowered) Gnasher herds were increased again after a decrease, no big surprise.

    I don't think the idea is to be ultra realistic. Just balancing what each gear can do. Regardless of what is could or should do. Most troops, if all they have is hand weapon and shield, aren't putting out much offense. They aren't breaking the game by being hit on average rolls. Chaos warriors, of course, being the exception.

    I really don't think there increase to necromancers was necessary, they are our only regular, non-super expensive caster option, of course everyone had them. Also the regular non-mount court lamia blood ties upgrade, what is the real price? 75pts, 90pts or 95pts?

    Actually in 6&7 ed. Parry granted an additional +1 armor save. Meaning dwarves and chaos warriors were pretty dang tough.

  • VC; court of the damned, lamia blood ties, non-mount cost went down to 75 pts. It is not listed in the summary, but is written in the book. It is still 90 in battlescribe update. Easy to miss it you aren't looking for it. (The summary also erroneously says that the wight king mount cost went from 10pts to 55pts, and i know for a fact no mount in the game costs 10 pts anymore)

  • Quote from Grouchy Badger: “Quote from Adam: “You can have distracting and minimally worse armour for a lot of points less with destiny call ” You sure are hard of reading. Above I posted both my counts who are in the same list. ” didn't see anything that says they were both in one list myself. Guess I'm hard of reading too.
