  • Quote from Babnik Kalenina: “Quote from Cicciuz: “Quote from Jomppexx: “Then again, did it really make sense for a wild animal to have the offensive and defensive fighting skills of a grail knight/EoS Marshal/Warrior of the Dark Gods? ” Does it make sense for a wild gigantic animal to have the same toughness of an Orc or an ogre(lord)? ” Remind me how many HP have Orc/Ogre lord? I think you are a bit confused with your assumption.... ” I don't think characters are relevant for the comparison. Th…

  • I must protest though at that fluff piece. A daeb highborn lady getting angry at her slave, punching him and cutting his ear off? Totally unbecoming of a lady. Indubitably, she would tell her butler, who would order another slave to get angry on his lady's behalf and to administer the punishment and mutilation.

  • I agree that it is a bit counter-intuitive that regaining hit points results in less attacks, but I see why that design decision was made. The way it is, its current number of attacks depends strictly on the number of HP it has lost, so no additional bookkeeping is needed. One thing I think it is missing, though, is the ability at pure regeneration of damage over time. As in, not just when it passes a save on a 6, but just from waiting and letting nature heal it. Would it really be too much to l…

  • Just wait for the Dread Animal Farm supplementary armybook, featuring Silexian animals that have revolted against their daeb overlords and established Communist communities.

  • Quote from SmithF: “In an attempt to help clarify things: I can confirm that any changes to Dancers or any other units had NOTHING to do with the addition of the Thunder Herd. The way book creation works is Background --> Guidelines --> Implementation and creation of rules that fit the narrative and will ALSO give players a lot of choice in terms of playstyle and a decent chance of winning games. On a personal note, concerning Dancers: The slim-book unit was problematic in that it did too much s…

  • Quote from Girien: “ So no slaves on the battle but, "hey! Cletus, stop milking and making bread, just pick that giant fork and lead your cows to crush the enemy!!" ” More like "Hey, Cletus, the Legion is mustering! Get your cowboys together and catch some rhinos, the Legate decided he wants a thunder herd!" If particular skills that have military use are found in significant numbers among the civilian population, any rationally organized conscript army would assign the conscripts to positions w…

  • I think it is an entirely reasonable request that players should be able to ignore any single unit they don't want to field and still remain competitive. It is also pretty much the essence of the design goal that there should be no auto-includes. The notion that players should be able to ignore any single unit and still have access in other ways to all the other capabilities the army has to offer, I'm not so sure about. It would be nice if that were the case, but I'm not so sure it's feasible wi…

  • Also, predators like dragons and hydras are meant to fight, and have the necessary anatomy and psychology for it. Stampeding herbivores are more about the momentum of the charge and the impact. They are living cruise missiles, meant to be largely fired and forgot. While they could possibly be trained for the follow-up combat, doing so might not be worth the effort when you could instead be capturing and turning more animals into cruise missiles.

  • Quote from Jomppexx: “Quote from Konrad von Richtmark: “It's against the guidelines to have Vanguard, but not against the guidelines to have a special rule that has mostly the same effect? Like WDG hounds have? I'd rather prefer the game kept clean and let them have actual Vanguard, not not-technically-Vanguard that somehow is still okay under a technical literal lawyer's reading of design guidelines. ” I agree but you must still see that 4" Vanguard and +4" March in turn one are different abili…

  • New Mist Leviathan concept feels much better. The rules correspond much better that way to the idea of elves advancing under the cover of mist to get the drop on the enemy. A moving smokescreen rather than an actual troop carrier. My first thought was though, why not just let it give nearby friendly infantry something like 4'' Vanguard? Much cleaner that way, no need for special rules and exceptions. Just firing from the hip, I would have it give 4'' Vanguard to all friendly standard infantry wi…

  • Making Thunder Herds a mixed unit like that would be rather redundant complexity. The beasts are the main thing the unit is about anyway, so it wouldn't make sense to let beasts and handlers be there in different proportions. The handlers are using the beasts for cover would likely bugger off if the beasts die, so might as well let them have a combined defensive profile that matches the beasts.

  • Looks to me like one guy doing his own 3D printing operation. Not so easy to add to the library if he only sells sporadically on ebay.

  • @Nemeroth, that's going in the miniature library! Where is it from?

  • I would prefer 18'' Quick to Fire auxiliaries over the current ones. With 18'' plus Adv 5'' you still have a 23'' effective range without penalty to hit, and in every direction at that if you have a musician. Also, once you're in range, you get an effective 2.5'' of free lateral or backward movement if you need to maneuver. I don't see much of an issue either with them being so close to the enemy that they will get killed. Just flee from any charge you can't take, if the auxiliary unit is a mini…

  • Quote from Kriegschmidt: “Quote from Klaudel: “I’ve been thinking about Temple Militia in context of perceived Dancers’ model invalidaton and I’m wondering if equipment customization wouldn’t be (at least a partial) solution to the problem. Here’s what could be done: 1) make light armour a purchasable option 2) introduce (purchasable) weapon options: a) hw + shield, b) blades of doraic, c) halberds (all of them one choice only of course). Those changes would catch in some way variety of religiou…

  • Got the Griffon Knights Panther done: xt8WYus.jpg JKAZ8sf.jpg mF6bwO0.jpg Nowhere as fancy and blinged out as the other unit. These guys are serious business, with a pinch of intentional gloom. Black death, black Panther! Black is a tertiary colour of my army anyway (behind red and white), so it fit right in to make them actual Knights Panther, not Knights Panther-that-actually-is-a-Leopard. This time, banner emblem only on the front. Freehand banner fatigue hit me, I'll do the backside if I end…

  • As long as legionnaires, auxiliaries, corsairs and militants are decently points-efficient, it should be a non-issue that dark raiders will only count for core in units of 8 or more.

  • Academy next or riot!
