  • @Klexe and the rest in T9A Chaos is not chaotic as is the case in some other settings. Thos has been repeatedly stated for nigh 5 years now yet I keep reading such statements. Chaos in T9A is the mythological/cosmological Chaos since we drew inspiration from there to create the two principal opposing forces in the setting both theologically and phisically.

  • That would be against the guidelines as well. edit @ army is not supposed to have better Special Deployment than average.

    @Minidudul Designers are not allowed to take inspiration from existing miniatures since that is Legaly unsafe therefore we cannot do what you ask.

    While discussing cost and the exact rules can be helpful to spot perceived issues as far as the reveal goes we are also deeply interested with the reception of the concept. Also while some of the images posted in this topic did serve as part of the inspiration the exact shape and nature of the creature is yet to be revealed so don't get too hung up on "jellyfish"

    Quote from Radian: “.. ” Yeah, how about no. Sure there could be an odd deranged person just like there are deranged humans, but that isn't what they as a society and culture are. T9A Dread Elves are not WHFB Dark Elves. While both belong to the wider fantasy niche of "dark" elves each has it own unique take on it. Quote from Squee: “Quote from Giladis: “Quote from Squee: “Possibly stupid question, but: if HT is against the guidelines - which presumably set out that DE should be vulnerable to ge…

    Quote from Marcos24: “@Giladis couldn’t the crippled or old slaves that aren’t as useful or any that are sentenced to death be used as meat shields? Even up to 5, as a 0-1 upgrade per army, even for a specific unit, could still fit into situation. I can’t imagine any slave be completely useful to the very last days of their lives. So I’m sure they’d just be outright Killed the second DE realize they can’t get more out of them. So instead, if there is a know raid or battle planned, toss them asid…

    Quote from Marcos24: “@Giladis Here’s what DE need then: Meat shields “Slave shields” as the official name for unit upgrade. Basically just buy extra wounds, up to 8 in case the unit is 8 wide, (or maybe just 4 if it’s too strong)that can be modeled and placed in the front of the unit for looks. They don’t attack, but any wounds done in shooting or combat are first removed as “slave casualties”. So it’s not hard target. It promotes aggressive play because theyre going to run out anyway and it wo…

    Quote from Squee: “Possibly stupid question, but: if HT is against the guidelines - which presumably set out that DE should be vulnerable to getting shot - then isn't designing a unit that goes against the guidelines in spirit a really bad idea? Aren't the guidelines there for a reason? ” Because the unit promotes offensive play while rules such as HT or cover are always active and give benefit if you play evasively. While guidelines do not prohibit protection against ranged damage it needs to b…

    Quote from Jomppexx: “I don't really like the transport idea. I don't want to see too much "units inside carrier" -style stuff in the game. However... Quote from 9th Scroll: “We wanted the “Mist Leviathan” or “Littoral MistDrifter” as it was previously known, to provide somekind of missile cover to the Dread Elves so wediscussed that the background could represent abeast that secretes mist as a camouflage while it iscloser to land. ” You could make this thing work sort of like an EoS buff wagon.…

  • Don't think so. Best just to quote them in the OP.

  • @Erethriel feel free to open a topic in the Background and Stories subforum and elaborate to your heart's content. BGT members frequent that subforum on a weekly basis looking for inspiration and ideas. Depending on the discussion at hand we sometimes join in

  • Quote from Erethriel: “Well, my gut feeling went towards something like "monster background/biology/fluff"-weeks within an army subforums. My first thought (always is, always was) greenskins: Gargantulas and smaller versions (plus the role the forest gobbos play), Wyverns, different kinds of Trolls, gnashers, giants, and possibly green idols. Probably forgot somebody, didn´t I? I see three problems, though, and would love to hear your opinion as well as further insights into the background desig…

    Dwarven holds in general are inspired by Derinkuyu if you are looking for more geographically related inspiration.

  • The answers to your 2nd question are in the World Hymn tapestry

  • KoE is part of Vetia and Vetia was inspired by Europe. In the same vein people of Vetia are overwhelmingly inspired by Indo-Europeans. Considering there has been no equivalent of Christianity in T9A the old Indoe-European pantheon continued to evolve among the various peoples of Vetia culminating in different takes on it for each of the T9A nations and the pantheons we constructed for them In other words based of what could have been seen from other factions and their pantheons it is highly unli…

  • Quote from Erethriel: “@Giladis I feel like opening or participating in a brainstorm thread on fantasy biology. Monster by monster, if you like? ” How do you envision this brainstorm?

  • That was in 5th ed of WHFB when they had access to fighting stances.

  • Quote from Klexe: “Quote from AEnoriel: “At least 144 Grail knights are officially recorded with their armorials, not counting the others who were either lesser known or whose armorials didn't respect the usual color rules. With less than 20 on a battlefield, do we have too many ? ” read the rulebook the number are abstract. 1 grail knight model means around 100-1000th models in fluff ” Or it could be just 1 for 1. Prominent individuals and creatures have a tendency to be seen as more focused re…

  • Thank you for the elaboration @Erethriel We do indeed take these things into account when discussion creatures inside the T9A setting to ensure their distribution, habits and character are sustainable. Another important point is that while the game of T9A:FB is violent in the same way a game of WHFB is our settings are quite different. There is no war all the time and conflicts in scale vary as much as they did in our history. Great battles or participation of great monsters are decennial, vigin…
