    Good stuff! For the most part the drops and hikes were well targeted with the exception being the Cheiftain's weapons. I get the idea behind the increase but I think in the end 90% of the time you see a Chieftain on the board it will be with Hunters Honour because of the price hike. The model just doesn't have the stats to fully utilize Spirit of the Whirlwind or Titanic Might and paying 20 pts for Sylvan Blades on top of the 60 pts for Heroes Heart is a hard nerf on the second most common optio…

  • With 5 pt drop on Titanic Might as well as the drop on the Horn of the Wild Hunt we can run this guy: Forest Prince: Wild Hunter Kindred, Great Elk, Sylvan Longbow, Light Armour (Destiny's Call), Sylvan Blades (Titanic Might), Dragonfire Gem, Horn of the Wild Hunt - 640 pts Bunkered in a unit of 10 Heath Riders /w Full Command & Predator Pennant is quite nasty, especially when paired with 2X4 Kestrel Knights /w Shields & Champions for some excellent board control and multi-charge plays. I'll be …

  • I am personally adverse to layering additional special rules onto the Kestrels and Briar Maidens. They both already have quite a few basic ones from the main book on top of our army rules and risk becoming bloated and overcosted if more are added. For skimirsh Kestrels I like the idea of having a sweep attack, but instead of a special unique debuff how about a simple damaging sweep attack; 2 hits per model @ Str 4 AP 2, then have the option count towards Unseen Arrows. (Its something I have been…

  • Yeah I am digging the following build: Blade Dancer Chieftain: Battle Standard Bearer, Spear (Hunters Honour), 2X Aether Icons - 335 13 Blade Dancers: Champion, Standard Bearer (Banner of Silent Mist) - 486 MR 3 & -2 to-hit vs most shooting. The Banner of Silent Mist is optional if you just plan on camping a Forest with the unit. Another good choice could be Banner of Swiftness on the unit for some silly charges and flanking maneuvers.

  • Noticed an error while building some lists SE: Heath Hunters Ambush option is coming up as 4pts/model. Actual price is 2pts/model Briar Maidens Champion got an error correction today and was changed to 100pts Thanks for all of the amazing work, Cheers!!

  • Here's some more of my thoughts regarding Wild Huntsmen & Briar Maidens: Wild Huntsmen - Thematically they are my favourite unit, I find the real world myth of the Wild Hunt incredibly engaging. I used to always take them in my lists because of this theme regardless of their efficiency but after the 1.3 update cycle I found them to be quite the liability most of the time and noticed an immediate improvement in my performance at events after I had dropped the unit. I find they are a very "RPSy" u…

  • 1. Araves Infantry (male arabians) 2. Charemises (female arabians) 3. Valkyries I was a Shield Maiden & Forest Goblin kickstarter backer. I would love to see the same love and attention given to a fantasy Arabian army! There aren't a lot of options on the market for such models and a unified product line could look amazing. Cheers!

  • Hello! This update came out faster than I had anticipated, woot! Here's my hot take without playing any games yet: Bough of Wyscan: I believe a deeper discount was needed to give this item a chance to see some play. Although the change does allow a Pathfinder Chieftain to take this + a newly discounted Horn of the Wild Hunt for an okay support character I guess ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Lifeseed Feathers: This item will remain unselected Mist Walkers Mirror: This item is still too expensive to take on a charact…

  • Here's my own personal wishlist: - Remove Electoral Calvary as a unit and make Knightly Orders a special unit . A Knight Commander then allows you to take a unit of Knightly Orders as Core. - Remove the Light Lance Reiter option and make it it's own unit in Core (maybe call them Hussars or Imperial Calvary?). Give this new unit Support Unit and some weapon options such as Hand Weapons, Shields, Lances, Handguns, & Bows. - Give KotSG a Calvary pick option or let them use a Halberd + Shield in Clo…

  • I am a fan of Paired Weapons /w Heroes Heart + Troll Ale Flask

  • Updated to 2.1.4 This is a bigger update than I had originally planned. With the current trends emerging in the DE discussion threads for their upcoming LAB it became clear that the project was going to pursue lowering their magic access by locking the Oracle with 3 paths and having an Acolyte with 2 others as an Adept. In the interest of keeping this homebrew within the bounds of the project's philosophy for magic I feel that ultimately the 5 paths option is unrealistic. As much as I am sad to …

  • Hey all! While I am enjoying the current SE book quite a bit, it still has it's flaws. For me it's primarily related to the narrowed themes and extreme streamlining process the book has had over these last few years. But since this is a points update those concerns will not be addressed at this time. So with that being said, barring the special items section and a few standout entries I don't think the internal balance of the book is particularly bad. Externally the usual suspects are causing th…

  • Here's a more fleshed out version of an idea for an assassin I have previously posted: (Hidden Content) Hidden: Beyond being highly thematic, the ability to be consistently deployed where it is needed most makes pricing the model easier since its nearly always going to be fighting it's preferred target. This also opens up interesting builds involving MSU infantry units. Marked for Death: This is an attempt to create a deadly assassin that's great against its chosen target but mediocre against R&…

  • Something I would like to see all the assassin type characters in the game get is a army specific version of Ambush. I suggested an Ambush from forests type ability for SE Shapeshifters and something similar for the DE assassin would be pretty cool! (Hidden Content) I think this recaptures the feel of an assassin lurking in the shadows waiting for the right time to strike. It gets around the old clunky mechanic of writing down where it is (the assassin was simply where it was needed most all alo…

  • Here's my two cents: Repeater Crossbow / Repeater Auxiliaries (Hidden Content) Repeater Handbow (Hidden Content) I am sure some of the rules text could be cleaned up in the examples above. The goal is try and meet the desired design goal while keeping rules bloat down. I dunno if Supporting Fire is too strong, the ability to cancel out stand & shoot and flee reactions at will is quite powerful. But it does require the proper units to be in position and for the Auxiliaries to be within 18" at a m…

    Quote from theunwantedbeing: “ - check whether the template/forest will fit where you want it to go - before moving any unit, note exactly where it is using multiple markers, dice work - move the unit very carefully and don't drop it ” Not sure if these suggestions would work in this case. I was placing it underneath a TFA (the bearer) and a unit of thicket beasts. Knowing it would fit wasn't an issue and placing a marker where the unit was wouldn't really work either since then you place the fo…

    Sweet template! Out of curiosity has anyone had issues when placing the forest underneath their own units? I took the seeds to an event a few months ago and there was one particular combat where I think the angles got severely messed up because of models bumped around as I was trying to fit the forest underneath multiple friendly units. This then allowed some charges into a flank that I think we're originally to the front. Any tips on avoiding this situation? (beyond not taking the item to begin…

  • I used some insta-mould putty to press mold the base the Dragon came with. Here's an inspirational image of what I have planned and have been testing out: l5r.fandom.com/wiki/Mirumoto_Ishino There is a large amount of lovely artwork from the Lot5R setting that suits this army perfectly. I got side tracked the last two weeks with some SE projects that came up for a team event, I had been hoping to debut these guys at the event but that just isn't in the cards Updates will be slower than I hoped b…

  • I am personally ambivalent on the Elven stat line, if it stays the same that's cool but I would also be open to tweaks. If it did change I would personally vote for the removal of Lightning Reflexes as a baseline rule for all elves (leaving it on Great Weapon users) in favour of slight stat bumps based on the flavour of elf and an overall points decrease. Dread Elves: Offense 5 baseline, with elites at Off 6 and Characters at 7+. Highborne Elves: Defense 5 baseline, with elites at Def 6 and Char…

  • I believe the player registered as a SE player, played WDG in the tournament instead, and used orc models to represent his WDG.
