  • Quote from infamousme: “Quote from Grouchy Badger: “Quote from infamousme: “Quote from Grouchy Badger: “Huscarls with thrown weapons peeled off 20 light EoS infantry with their throwing. 10/10 would do again. ” In how many shooting rounds? ” That was one round. The next round whittled them down to just two ranks. I love how huscarls can do this. "Im not gonna charge you, im gonna just chaff you, ha ha!" "Very well, have it your way" [Axe whistling through the air] ” This is how I would theoretic…

  • Quote from Marcos24: “Quote from arwaker: “Tbh, that does not change anything imho. From a Knight's point of view, peasants and men at arms are similar. ” Actually knights were men at arms as well and rely* on them? I’d say no but if you buy them they’ll can help. Let’s focus on making those units anything but boring ” A knight that sees a peasant and a Man At Arms as the same is one pompous idiot of a knight. Ay sor lemme till the fields with me bloody halberd.

  • Quote from arwaker: “Imho that is a hard stretch. But I doubt that tha discussion is worth continuing. On the other hand, I could very well imagine Brigands having poison. That is far less unrealistic. They live in the woods, they are outside of the regular KoE society, and they are far less common. ” I'll take what I can get.

  • Quote from arwaker: “Quote from Grouchy Badger: “Quote from arwaker: “Farmers have no idea haw to make poison ” they know how to poop in a bucket, dont they? ” And in what way would that be a poison that affects the victim within a relevant time span during a battle?Poison in game mechanics is not the same as poison in a literal way. Game affecting poison must be something very special and effective. Neurotxines for example, but not some poop in a bucket. If it would be that easy, why wouldn't e…

  • Quote from arwaker: “Quote from Kratos: “Quote from Grouchy Badger: “Speaking of alternative weapons, why don't peasants get poison shot? You would think peasants would know a thing or two about swirling their arrows in a slurry of [Redacted For The Nobility] and whip it at the enemy.. ” Peasants must be a support element.Take in mind how where designed in GW. On 6th edition WFB, they got flamming shoots to be able to get regen out FOR THE REST OF THE GAME so knights could charge trolls and hydr…

  • Quote from DanT: “Quote from Stygian: “Now were talking! The larger area attack in game terms still inspires the feeling of the more massive war machine and would be much better for KOE's purposes especially if it were to become cheaper. I had proposed 5x4 but 5x5 without center hit would be even better to me I just didn't want to go to far. DanT make it happen brother! I know you have the power.. ” I have zero power... I gave it all away If asked to design something like this I would maybe keep…

  • Quote from Duke Niemar: “Quote from Stygian: “I agree realistically, but in game terms that shot would be really lackluster. 5x2 would be more worthwhile. a regular catapult is 4x4 s3 and is not great but against t3 blocks becomes at least a consideration. I'd at least want a similar output but probably larger radius since the trebuchet is considered bigger..? ” Trebs were not used to hit moving targets (gee I wonder why) so it was not designed for splash damage. The shot from a treb resembles a…

  • Quote from Stygian: “To shift gears for a second.. What if we cut the restrictions between grails and trebuchets, and the treb profile changed to this: S3(7) ap1(5) area attack (5x4) multiple wounds (d3) 185 pts. This would solidify the weapon as anti infantry while keeping the feeling of a massive war engine due to the larger area attack and ap1. And it becomes more affordable so could feature in lists more commonly. ” I for one welcome our Trebuchet over lords. 1xu0gd5aso411.png

Allowed colonist rebels to poke at the waves of british troops assaulting their position ” This battle took place on two hills and is called after one. But anyhow.

  • these lists are tearfully boring, except for triple Tomahawk Banshee and the dude bringing the skeleton and zombie raising horde.

  • Quote from SlaveToThePyre: “Quote from Traumdieb: “Yeah that was the reason Please send me the Wiki page of one battle were the goal was to capture a wall as strategic goal. ” It was very common in Greek Warfare. Battles were fought around easy-to-build last minute fortifications in the Peloponnesian War, for example in the battles of the Epipolai around Syracuse. ” and Roman field works.

  • As well, for Peasants, their walls are a pike lined fortification, which is well represented in history.

  • Quote from Traumdieb: “Quote from Grouchy Badger: “Quote from Traumdieb: “Please take out of king of the hill that you can choose a wall. Its such a small terrain and silly fluffwise. The fight to capture a wall. ” A lot of battles have been fought over walls, im not even talking the big ones. ” But not over those ones the size of 9th age battles ” Not exactly true. Lots of late stage wars (pike and shot, ACW, Napoleon French Offensives) would fight bitterly over walls barely waist high
