  • Those dragons look niiice. Which model did you use as the base?

  • Quote from jaith1: “@Giladis Heaven forbid that attention actually becomes warranted one day, gosh that would suck! ” that only means that they'd be drawing proportionally less attention than now, which would actually suck .

  • Quote from Herminard: “Of a fair comparable note - how would the HBE react if the shiny spear was removed outright or MoCT becoming a non-BSB honour only? ” On the first point - I'd be up for it as long as the characters receive appropriate rules changes to fit a role in the army - I.E: Non-mage infantry characters right now only offer two roles: QtF buff carrier and combat lord with spear. Without the spear it goes down to a single role, cos without spear the combat ability of normal infantry c…

  • Quote from Herminard: “I dont see why them having Hard Target makes them directly weaker to UD. Screen them against massed bowfire. Take the chariotshots on the chin like a man. Be thankful if the Shabties throw their high quality shots at so relatively cheap wounds. ” I play basically casual, so don't worry too much, it was more tongue in cheek than anything (the fearless comment was from back when I used to play competitive). The guy I usually play against loves to spam skelleton archers, and …

  • Quote from Wesser: “Hmm Ill admit I cant remember the competitive meta at the time. Mainly remember my poor Empire troops not getting to strike a whole edition against HBE ” That was 7th ed, when HBE got built in ASF. In 6th edition HE infantry was powerless to charges, just like everything else.

  • Quote from Herminard: “2 attacks s4 ap1 Hard Target Distracting? #jediknights ” Stuff that makes HE weaker to UD makes me sad T.T. Quote from Giladis: “@ferny or they could loose their monster hunting capabilities to be more true to their T9A concept. ” Funnily, after thinking a bit about it, I wouldn't be against this. Move their monster hunting capabilities to another unit (say - lion chariot, for example? Better threat range and mobility to match monsters) and make them barebones great weapon…

  • Quote from Vanagrand: “I used play casually. 3-4 times a month, and because the state of the HBE elves I haven't played since 2.0. When i was more exited about this project was around 1.3 if im not wrong, when WITHOUT ANY DATA they nerfed them due they seem to be to Overpowered. I repeat. Without any data. ” As someone who went casual after playing (semi) competitive I can say honestly that balance matters frankly very little in a casual game. a 20-30 pts difference in a unit doesn't really matt…

  • I still fundamentally agree with @fnarr - advantages like giving cover fire or improving the shooting of other units is just another boost to shooting heavy and protect the castle lists, and there they are forced to compete with all the other shooting units. Ideally, I'd like it better if they were geared towards making combat lists more efficient, while remaining a somewhat decent pick for the others. My idea, how about changing Fae miasma to something like: -shooting attribute, any unit that s…

    Quote from Kopistar: “First off, your chaff is not doing it's role. ” While I wouldn't call them good either, a multi-tasking unit is expected to offer redundancy, not to be the primary mean for its roles (unless said role is niche enough that might not warrant an army "slot", such as it is usually the case of warmachine hunters). If you usually take two pieces of chaff, you could think about upgrading one to chaff+WM hunter if you don't always find the best use for the second one, and adding a …

  • Honestly... I don't really see much incentive on improving CAs. They are certainly "meh", but... I don't know how to change them without changing severely the army dynamics. By themselves, as of now they have a relatively limited role: counter-chaff, bunkers, banner holders and minor support. These kind of roles tend to be ones that require relatively few numbers of them (10 to 20 in one or two units, more is overkill) positioned in the right places. The thing is that strengthening them will 99%…

  • Quote from Noldor: “Quote from Giladis: “WDG is the only 2nd phase book of the bunch and they habe 'monster mash' as one of their playstyles. ” Wasnt monster mash (especially flying Circus) one of ours? Did this change? ” I don't know if it has changed again, but there are two takes on this: 1- Very early on, when there were individual design teams, each design team was asked which playstyles were available to their army. Back then, our team did state flying circus as one of ours. 2- After that,…

  • Re-picking the game after a long hiatus, but playing light (2250 pts) Current list (casual) -Master Mage w/ light Armor, Gleaming Robes, Divination (General) @ 470 -20 x Citizen Spears w/ Standard, War Banner of Ryma @ 320 -6 x Highborn Lancers @ 280 -15 x Lion Guard w/ Musician @ 385 -1 x Reaver Chariot @ 110 -1 x Giant Eagle @ 100 -10 x Queen's Guards w/ Spear, Musician @ 315 -1 x Sky Sloop @ 265 TOTAL: 2245 It's amazing how constrained you are at 2250, but I like the list quite a lot. 4 scori…

  • While I personally am not unhappy with the army or the state of the game, the notion that any army should have units that make me think "how the heck do I tackle that?" feels absurd. A unit for which the best battle plan is to just avoid it (note that I'm not saying "only") is an unfun unit - I would say that for both sides. The side playing it won't enjoy not using it, and the other side will feel powerless. This is why I hate sphynx so much. They might not be OP, but they are so tough and taki…

  • I'll be honest, MD would be worth those 20 pts (probably even more) on reavers if it covered panic tests. As is, it doesn't and MD very rarely comes into play for them. But I'm of the opinion that context matters for units, and that it's not a good idea to draw one-to-one comparisons between armies, even if the unit is basically the same.

  • Quote from Masamune88: “QCav forcing you to lose a whole category due to one choice is pretty appalling and that happens even if you don't take a gigantic mount, this restriction was put in place due to historic feeling on the army and previous builds, not current data nor trends so a bit of a pet hate from me. ” IIRC, QCav was originally not a full fledged honour - honors were originally meant to be an attempt to standardize character types into options, and prior to the appearance of the QC we…

    Quote from Voymire: “I really regret writing that about the Chaos Lord as I obviously did not get through what I wanted. In any case, let's ignore this and concentrate on what I really wanted to get across: ” Do not regret it, because for a reasonably large amount of people what you were discussing is exactly what they want. There has been enough literature of powerful heroes killing tens of lesser warriors with a single swing of their sword to fill entire libraries, and the musou genre of video…

  • Quote from Peacemaker: “Wrath of god should be changed to not have strength. first turn it wounds on 6+, 2nd turn it wounds on 5+, then 4+ and so on. ” Spoken like a true elven player

  • Quote from cptcosmic: “I am mostly happy about HBE, there are only a few things I dont like, but if there is anything I could change then I would make HBE slightly less a bunch of elven berserks and a bit more a bunch of elven knights. ” The armor vs offense thing, is that right? I guess that the last bunch of price drops to the griffon mellowed you out

  • Quote from Lagerlof: “Did you really remove the part of my quote were I actually mentioned charges? ” Yup. Natural 1 to spot. I think I though it was part of your signature or something. Sorry.
