    I would argue that Sylvan Elves have the most proficient elf lords in combat by a fair margin when considering the Wild Hunter. Yes he has draw backs in limited armour save and being mounted and frenzy, but if we’re talking about pure damage potential, that elk lord does pretty much the most damage of any single model in the entire game on the charge, at agility 10. Using his Black Stag and a Lance plus weapon of choice (I like blessed inscriptions) I don’t think any other single model, and cert…

    I think if the conclave options where available to everyone, they'd be taken. A specific example is in a strigoi double Count list I'd 100% consider a Hexwraith conclave, since I'd have access to Awaken the Beast + Perception of strength. I'm almost considering a unit of Hexwraiths in my Strigoi list now, since Varks are more expensive. A unit of 10 Hunters is almost a straight swap for a Vark! I'd also consider a Wraith unit conclave simply to include it's own Raven's Wing. Or Ravens Wing in a …

    Was having a discussion today about blood ties, and if the blood ties restriction was removed how would this affect lists. I'm of the opinion that the blood ties mechanic is nothing but restrictive, and they don't do anything to actually open up new styles of lists. For some units Blood Ties open up new ways to be played, in the case of Ghouls and Vamp Knights, others aren't taken due to not being considered useful (Coach) while others are considered essential for a unit to be played (Court). Co…

    I enjoyed Blazing Glories at 320. I thought Blazing Glories where good at 300. At 290 Blazing Glories are absolutely amazing. 300pts for Cloven Hoof Blazing Glory is such a great unit, AP5, D3+1 impacts, great stats. Utility in being stubborn. 350pts for a Flying Blazing Glory! 720pts for 2 Flying Blazing Glories with Impact hits! Now that is something I want to test out. That gives you 855pts to fit in a kitted out Scourge, which is fully doable. 2 Flying glories, Cloven Hooves. 720pts. 1 Scour…

    Quote from Snarkhunter: “Quote from Alexwellace: “This. The effect on chieftains is essentially that the Heroes Heart build has gotten 15pts more expensive, while the Hunter's Honour build has stayed the same. What was initially two competing builds with no clear winner, now has a clear winner. I don't really think this is justified. However at least we can now use Titanic Might, Horn of the Hunt and Aether Icon. Other than that, cheaper Huntsmen units are probably worth a try in larger units, s…

    Quote from Laik: “Quote from CariadocThorne: “Quote from Laik: “I'm really surprised that after years of making good rules they've decided to increase price of sylvan blades by 15 points on chieftan - which makes it ex aequo the most expensive mundane weapon in the game (with same pricre on prince - that has more WS,I, Agi, AP) - can anyone answer me why does it happened? I've always played shooting oriented BSB chieftan and it seems that it will stay that way. ” As I said in the OP, it makes mo…

  • @Gaelion I'm a little confused about the purpose of the tournament packs on offer, i.e are these packs exclusively for a 'prize pool' scenario? Because it reads almost like they're an incentive or reward for putting in the effort of running a Ninth Event, that the organizers get access to this cheaper option.

    No love for Kadim's bindings? Sure it makes him counterable by basalt and dragonbane, but he's got a large base size when maximized as a cowboy and it really helps him put wounds onto infantry units. A friend of mine has been running Mask of the Fernance and Kadim's bindings and he seems to like it. It gives the toxic breath weapon flaming, which alongside alchemy or the hereditary gives rr-2-wound toxic, which usually makes up for not having strength 7. Our meta has 3 Sylvan Elves, so maybe thi…

  • As a character battle, Shady Shanking really seems like the best option. Tuctek's guard / Mithril mail are the best options for defence considering you already have a 5+ ward, perhaps death cheater but it's pretty expensive and doesn't get you a good armour save. 2+ armour vs t6 are essentially interchangable, but would perhaps go with Tuktek's simply because it's more thematic than a 2+ save. so 95pts left. Troll ale flask is a must, as it's the only option to upgrade our offence. Last artifact…

  • Quote from Shlagrabak: “Quote from Lord Drakon: “14. Agility and attack can never become lowers than 1. ” A small nuance, agility can't be modified to be lower than 1 but rules can dictate that some of the model's attacks happen at Initiative Step 0 (as with great weapons or stomp attacks) and p67 hints at the possibility of attacks having Agility 0 (though it's probably a shortcut for attacks from model parts with agility 0). which could happen with a model part stating with Agility 0 in their …

  • the-ninth-age.com/community/ga…6ccefbc6b3772ba06302cdc63 Marksmen, Hold Guardians and an eventual Grudge Buster. Wow painting a whole armies of these bearded boys is going to take an age, but I'm happy with them being a passion project until I make some more headway.

  • What if KOE had two 'detachment' styles? I.e when you made the list you could make it in one of two ways, an 'Army of the Land' style list or a 'Crusader' style list. For this type of book I'd suggest we do something interesting, 2 separate core categories. A crusader style list would be 20% core, but core would only include knights, while the Army of the Land style list would be 15% core knights and 10-15% for a separate category of peasant units. Then we could attach a lot of these special rul…

  • Wow this forum doesn't have much general discussion going on! Was talking with a friend and playing around with OnG lists since he's trying to break into them, and we where stuck on good general builds. Something we came up with and subsequently got a little excited about was a Feral Orc Warboss with Mithril Mail, Rangers Boots, Titanic might and trollale flask. He was sat in a unit of Feral Orc Spear Edbashers with Banner of Speed. So the fun part is this boy is movement 7 when charging out of …

    What is the intended role for Bloat Flies to play in the army, and to what extent do the current rules facilitate this role? I really think Bload Flies are the only unit in the book I can't see a role for. Even if I don't think a unit isn't doing it's job very well currently (Eidolons, Miser, Titianslayer) I can perfectly see what the design intention is. These are all issues I 100% see can be dealt with via small changes or with points. But in my opinion flies are different issue.

    I've come up with two lists so far that make use of some of the models I wouldn't have touched before. The first makes the new, cheap and large pulpits to help provide ranks to Lemure blocks, which gives me points to sneak in a unit of Imps into core. The Imps with volly fire and move behind the Lemure blocks in relative safety, but my main pull to them is that the unit gives me two spears of infinity and an extra 3'' of range to my Div adept, really helping my early turn 1/2 magic phases that w…

  • Got carried away making lists today and ended up with this. 810 - Omen of Savar, Dark hide, Bronze Backbone, Dexterous Tenticals, Throne of Overwhelming Splendour, Adept, Thaumaturgy 495 - Harbinger of Father Chaos, Living Shield, Guiding Mirrored Scales, Battle Standard Bearer, Wizard Adept, Evocation. Dark Pulpit 470 - Harbinger of Father Chaos, General. Living Shield, Guiding Mirrored Scales, Unnatural Roots, Wizard Adept, Divination. Dark Pulpit. -= 1775 --- Core --- 378 - 14x Lemures, Venom…

  • If the design in right, and only the points are off, shouldn't we be able to see the intended role for this unit? Like a unit with a clear design direction that is only off by points should still have an obvious design direction. But the stat-line of the Flies is all over the place. If they're a cavalry hunter unit, then they are only move 6 (can't catch their pray), statistically only cause a single AP 2 wound per model against resilience 4. If they're a unit mulcher they are directly supersede…

  • Quote from Arwarn: “Quote from Happy Aspid: “Very glad for imps, eidolons and sentinel. ” I don't get it for the sentinel. It's 20pts more expensive (considering third eye was 20 pts in previous version) and he didn't get much (dark pulpit is a little better than the throne but won't change much). ” Might not change much for you, but for me this is fantastic. I've been playing the Sentinel in a unit of 20 Lemures and every piece of combat rez counts! My Sentinel had unnatural roots, and Witherin…

  • I didn't get 100% so no Scourge, but got close enough to learn that they're fixing the issue with Harbingers and Deceiver not having Light troops, which impacted their ability to be used with Eidolons. And that Eidolons as expected are moving to 24" range...but loosing Accurate. Which is a trade I can live with as long as their points aren't increased. I can pretty easily see a list that naturally uses poison Deceiver also including a unit of Eidolons for the Deceiver to sit in turn 1-2-3 then h…

  • Has anyone successfully deciphered all the the spoilers and earned the Scourge one yet? If not I'll throw my hat in. Eidolons - Range 24'', 5++, Dark fire rework? Lots of talk about it being great against armour, which right now it isn't (only being equivalent of AP 1.5 in most situations), but this might be just poetic lisence. Creatures of Supernal speed = increase to 6''-12'' perhaps? Imps - unleash *A* bolt of energy. Not multiple, A. And since later in the sentence it alludes to spear of in…
