  • How I’d see Hydra: HP: 5 (each HP representing one head) Att: attack value is always equal to current HPx2 (representing each head having 2 attacks) Regeneration: upon succesful Fortitude save Hydra immediately recovers 1 wound. No more than one wound can be recovered that way per each Player’s Turn. or more brave design Scrap Fortitude alltogether Regeneration: at the beginning of each Player’s Turn Hydra recovers one wound. No tokens, no contradictory rules. Simple. More meaningful regeneratio…

  • Quote from DarkSky: “Feedback Game As announced here is today's feedback forum question/task/game. In the DE LAB sneak peek we saw several flavourful rules, which represent something more or less iconic about a unit. For these rules we can see a variety of implementation methods and I'd like to ask for your feedback about some of the "dimensions" of those. I will list the "dimensions" how I think of them, explain them, and then ask for your feedback on any of those. If you do not agree with how …

  • Quote from WarX: “@Klaudel I think the problem is that we have a little bit too-tight stats on Off/Def. I do not like the idea that some (wild) monsters have Off/Deff like most elite DH unit. I understand that combat proves of such monster (compared to Human/Dwarf/Elf on foot) should be reflected in HP, R, number of attacks, Stomps, etc. But definitely not in having high Off/Def. I also more understand giving (Kraken?) Distracting to monster then superior Def. ” I understand and have nothing aga…

  • Quote from Peacemaker: “ Quote from Tyranno: “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? ” This!I always found it daft how the DE monsters had OS/DS5, where every other (animal) monster capped out at 4. Like, the Alpha Carnosaur is supposed to be the apex predator, OS4. Hydra, OS5...wat. ” Well, T9A uses abstractions. So it can kinda be whatever. I'd argue…

  • I don’t like the new hydra. Contradictory rules seem off (I’m talking of course about Rage vs Cut one off). Also not a fan of handlers. Unnecessary complication and people will usually forget to role those 2 S3 attacks anyway.

  • Quote from setrius: “Quote from Wesser: “Not a fan of Poison Hydras is an iconic concept that dont scream “poison/acid”. Moreover it clutters the entry. Consider removing Happy about Breath change. Hydras were often seen in triples and with auto-hitting it was pretty broken vs other elves. This at least cuts the madness back a bit Great to have “grow heads back thing”. Ideally I would have made a solution removing Fortitude (which doesnt fit IMO) entirely, but solution is fine. Rage is perfect h…

  • Quote from DanT: “Quote from Girien: “Quote from Klaudel: “... I think Thudnder Herd depleted our design space for LT units ” ” I think you may have over-interpreted and over-emphasised this remark.Which I think was not made by a member of the team working on the book? Perhaps wait and see if light troops dancers are in the book, and if they are not, ask the LAB team directly if you lost them due to the herd? I am sure if you ask a reasonable question, politely, they might indulge you At the mom…

  • Quote from GSbasic: “This book is closer than you might think! ” I think this is the most important update of this week

  • Quote from Jomppexx: “You guys realize this thing giving light troops would be extremely powerful? Like extremely is understating it. Giving in the range of 2-4 units of R&F infantry units light troops and march 14" would be crazy. ” Btw take a look what guidelines say about this „B.3 Movement Typical elf speeds with a special emphasis on playing aggressively towards the enemy and enabling close quarter fights. I.e. charge range and speed forward towards the enemy should be more emphasized t…

  • Nice update. Here are my answers. Please let us know regarding the concepts for Leviathan: * Do you like it better, equal, worse than the one shared before? Much better; wall of text replaced with something simple and nonstandard at the same time. * Do you see any obvious OP combos/breaking the game? nothing comes to mind * Do you think it manages to lower the wordiness and therefore complicatedness? yes * Would you know what the first part does without looking up rules? After looking themga up?…

  • 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 religious military groups represented by this unit. Wit…

  • I’ve been thinking about the Executioner’s Icon and I wonder if it won’t be the case of a very good item which is seldom used (like for instance Ring of shadows). I mean if you kit a character (even on foot) you have to think first and foremost about protection. And if you take a captain (or a priest) with 100 pts limit you have to take at least Essence of Mithril or Talisman of shielding which are both at 50 pts so you have 50 remaining for other items. So you have a dillema: make a vanila capt…

  • Quote from setrius: “Does the Manticore gains +1 Avd in flight movement with the Scent of Blood rule? That is all ” yes - BRB p. 94

  • 50x50 base for manti - love it. Concerning the list shown: do I see a unit of 3 medusas?

  • There are no mounts to choose and imo manticore is overcosted for 50x100 base.

  • Quote from Lord Drakon: “3 questions to you all: 1. What is your biggest fear for the new DE book? 2. What is your biggest hope for the new DE book? 3. What do you love most about DE? ” 1. magic gets too weak 2. interesting background showing a living faction 3. what @Phaeoron said: a noble race corrupted by their sense of pride. It’s like Galadriel accepted the gift of the One Ring from Frodo, defeated Sauron and established a new elven era in the Middle Earth. That kind of themes

  • Wow, I haven’t been active in this thread for like two days and some of you managed to start a regular flame war. Well, if you wanted to get attention than you 100% succeded - now this thread is being watched by the whole mod team. The days of „soft” moderating here are over. From now on every offensive, impolite or in any other regard flaming comment will be deleted. Warning points will be issued and people banned if deemed neccesary. And to all the others: if you feel that someone acts inappro…

  • Quote from DarkSky: “Quote from Klaudel: “Waiting for use of hunting bolas on whatever unit it will be possible. ” Let's play a game: Guess which of the successors of current DE units will get Hunting Bolas. As it is a common rule, we already know it will be at least two units. ” So what’s the outcome @DarkSky ? Who has won this time?

  • I like the Daeb. I pronounce it with long „a” - Daaaaaeb - and it sounds just fine.

  • Speaking of „chaotic”: is there any thought behind our weekly sneak peaks? I often look at the VS sub-forum and they seem to have quite structured approach to spoilers (seperate topics starting with AWSRs that are thoroughly substantiated). And it is amazing: I can see where they are coming from and what they want to do with the army. Whereas here we see stuff dropped every Tuesday and it looks quite random (good example is Artistry of Death which was revealed 2 weeks after one of the units havi…
