  • C'est un processus assez compliqué. Il y a un patch d'équilibrage chaque année autours de décembre, avec d'une part l'objectif que les entrées d'une armée soient toutes utilisables (équilibrage interne) et que toutes les armées soient également compétitives (équilibrage externe). Ce patch annuel est basé sur une grosse collecte de donnée de tournois, qui permettent d'observer les ratios de victoires des différentes armées et quelles unités sont tout le temps ou jamais utilisées. C'est l'équipe d…

    That's not how balance work guys. Things are not and will not be priced compared to similar options in other books. See it that way (schematic): Things are priced only for internal balance, so that all options are playable and various list are more or less equally good. THEN you apply a global price multiplier on the points in the army to try to get good external balance. These are two different (orthogonal) processes. No, pricing skeletons while taking into account the rest of the army is not "…

    Stuborn (and Aegis) on a monster is not to be neglected though. Means he can't get overwhelmed by combat resolution.

    I didn't even indicate bows to be up in the survey. I don't think a 5-10% reduction will make them playable anyway, so I thought it would be better to focus on other solvable issues.

  • Quote from WhammeWhamme: “Quote from Serwyn: “Nah, pathfinder are the "short" range anti armour and sentinels more like the long range anti thoughness Pathfinder fullfill the elite archers fantasy. I don't see the book not having some elite scouts archers in some way. Maybe a true elite non-scout archers unit and a good scooting one. Sentinels kind of compensate for the lack or war machine, they could very well be scrapped and replaced imho. ” Just to be clear, when I said "long range" I meant i…

    Maybe an animal companion is possible though Like a shapeshifter being in a unit with its fellow tiger or bear.

    Quote from Wesser: “ The problem is that units tend to be priced based on their maximum potential and in cases such as the Sylvan bow this means the assumption is that the unit will always be in short range. ” From my understanding, that's not true anymore (also it would not apply that way: Otherwise it would mean that SA with always S4 and accurate would have the same price as actual SA.) I think that now the target is more specifically win rate (external balance) and pick rate (internal balanc…

    poison does not fit SE that well imho. That banner would be muche better for SA or goblins. Lethal strike or +1 to wound better fits SE Also sure WH may do non-negligeable damages on a cowboy, but they get wiped in return so you're loosing the fight anyway, and you can't prentively do significative damages at range to permits WH to have a good chance of finishing the monster before retaliation. And more generally, except our own monsters, no unit in the book can take a phase of damage from a cow…

  • The question remains always the same. Does "Auto Hit" make sense from a rule perspective? Is "Wounds that didn't need a to-hit roll" Well defined? There may very well be way to many edge cases, and it wouldn't cover attacks that hits with a fixed, unmodifiable score.

  • Quote from Chronocide: “It's a pattern in the respect that it's 3pts in a line on a chart that only has 3 entries. ” Joachim Son-Forget approves

  • To me toxic attacks are aerosol-based since they ignore armor. Like the toxic spores aspect of nature

  • It only has 4 hp. Taking it down by shooting shouldn't be too hard. Also I suppose a moving warmachine will be priced fairly high. It should have unwieldy however in my opinion. There is no way it is easier to move and shoot with that than with an arquebuse.

  • Core/Special are pure game design and balance concepts and have zero narrative value. If the units repartition is only/mostly defined by background, then they serve no game design purpose either and it makes absolutely no sense to keep these categories.

  • It would if you have background-driven rules. I can't really say how or to which point background has precedence over design though.

  • Quote from Eastern Gate: “I recently heard about the Warhammer armies project and decided to check out the wood elves 9th edition book for funsies. I just glanced over it but to me it seemed like they kept all the entries from 8th while also adding all the new units from age of sigmar but with warhammer rules. At first it was cool to see new units but it got old very quickly. My initial opinion of the book is that it feels very bloated with too many choices that doesn't have a clear role and a c…

  • Quote from CariadocThorne: “@Jarec That could be a good idea. You mentioned rocks, what about standing stones? They could be bought as a normal unit, with no movement or attacks, scout, R10 and a lot of HP, and they could choose one upgrade from a list of stuff like +1MR to friendly units within X", or friendly wizards can measure range and LoS for spells from the stone, or something like that. ” Actually that would be a really cool and unique mechanic, and with very little complexity because mo…

  • Quote from Falco: “Quote from Serwyn: “Useless naked BSB is not a thing. If anything it is the opposite. Both the Hail Shot and the Hunter's Honour on it are great and you can't take both. ” Well I’m forced to play my BsB naked on sentinels because is where I need it. Hail shot is 9 impacts of ST4, not the best for again 70 points.BsB with hunters honour on dancers, rangers or lancers is good BUT he is linked totally to that unit and normally goes on center. So if I take it I lose my BsB on sent…

  • Useless naked BSB is not a thing. If anything it is the opposite. Both the Hail Shot and the Hunter's Honour on it are great and you can't take both.

  • A different, small spells systems using veil tokens or something would be really interesting, however I fear that it would implies a mostly complete change of the magic phase of SE. This would probably mean a lot of complexity unique to the book, and I'm not sure it is worth it for a book that has only a medium focus on magic.
