    Quote from Drakkanor: “Right now if you spam as many bows and hero archers as possible the only one it would be unfair for is the SE player. In fact you will probably lose every game 20-0.I personaly don't want a superhero carrying a rocketlancher as a bow with 10 other special rules, I simply would like to have a viable one. What does viable mean? No idea, but remember SE don't have wm and lack in high S attacks and MW so I guess somethingh that cover those spots would fit well. That said my ma…

    Quote from Arrahed: “I feel there is lot lost in translation here. This is how I interpret the SE community position (as represented here, not in general): "It is frustrating that the supposedly premier bow and arrow faction currently spends a lot of its complexity budget for character/item combinations that are lackluster when compared to other factions which have much less of their complexity budget allocated towards ranged characters." This is both true for a background-first approach, where …

    Quote from Bash: “My fault. *edited I don't think it would be unfair. Little Pyrodwarf in ID has 3HP T4 4+ Armour... A shot has a succesrate of something 30%. I think it would just add some pressure not to do whatever they want in their safety units. ” R5, not 4, and possibly a 3+. But it's not ID mages who would be hurt by snipers, it's UD and Elves.

    Quote from tuba hero: “Hi! Do we know if The new update to The book will come with the balance update to every other book or it will arrive sooner (or later)? I am really looking foward to it hehe ” I don't believe Beta 3's release is specifically tied to the general balance update, but that doesn't preclude them coming out at the same time.

    Quote from Bogi: “Quote from Arjelte: “Are you actively trying to get people to quit making 9th for us? You're being excessively rude. ” I'm just saying that designers should have a good insight into the game. Whammie came here saying things like if we want our two bows to be competitive we need to probably sacrifice something. The whole idea that buffs to certain parts of the army which are not taken need to come with nerfs to the taken parts and that somehow this buff would cause our army to b…

  • Quote from Just_Flo: “Please remember, that LAB time and an actual change possibility is still away. But feel free to make a homebrew in which only one unit differs ... ” I mean, the project has on occasion changed it's mind, but yeah... see below. Quote from Guille: “I do not understand why the updates are now 100% restricted to points change, considering there are units that need a redesign. I think the regular updates can be points adjustment based but change 1 unit or a couple of magical obj…

    Quote from Falco: “We should have the BEST archers heroes, actually one high elve noble with eluus bow, shots way better and could have fleet officer for seaguard... We don’t need new bows, just what we had before: 2d6 poison bow with str 1 Lifessed without restrictions Wyscan with +1 to wound, +2 if is in short range And done What is terrible for me is no changes since 2 years and we are not going to change it in at least one year more, when solution is easy. With that you are going to solve th…

That was just petty, spiteful insults. Good luck with your life. ” I gave you plenty of comments about the ID book but you were too stubborn to change. Please refrain from workings on the SE book.

    Quote from Bogi: “@WhammeWhamme I usually have a very ironic note behind my posts but this time I will say it straight. In your posts you mentioned some background but you have not brought up gameplay into the mix. Gameplay and how things works in the game is more significant then background and having res3 archers outside ld range with low ld is something which is not easily playable. I feel an approach and any discussions need to mainly focus on playability and background does not even have to…

  • Quote from strauss: “Quote from Kriegschmidt: “I feel the opposite: if the Dwarves are supercilious about other races to the point of xenophobia, why would they make *their* armour for another creature? Seems more flavourful to me that - like with vassals and slaves - they'll use them in battle but won't allow them to wear their precious Infernal Armour. I feel the armour is partly how they hold themselves 'above' the masses around them. ” For this part I summon @WhammeWhamme, our background gur…

    Quote from Drakkanor: “Quote from WhammeWhamme: “There's nothing lore-incompatible with SA and HE having better weapon enchantments. SE are clearly better archers than anyone else in the setting; a Pathfinder character has performance comparable to other factions using a magic bow based on pure skill. On a mechanics-as-flavour level, the current SE book makes it clear Pathfinders are better archers than anyone else, end of story. So - SE are neither denied nor guaranteed top-tier bow enchantment…

    Quote from Falco: “Someone could explain to me why druids are disc 8 and even master druid has disc 8? And matriarch has disc 9... I know that forest prince disc was reduced and blablabla but druids? IF I want to have BsB + disc 9 I have to pay 200 points and 150 points on two nacked chieftains (or take dryad matriarch). We also have the option to pay 65 points to increase disc but if we lose it ... LAB is going to keep the same way of disc on druids? ” SE are not as good at Discipline tests as …

  • The "small updates" for 2.0 took an enormous amount of project time and effort. Still, in the interests of encouraging people: be the change you want to see. Put together a team of people who play all sixteen armies (or maybe just the ten non-LAB armies, since you can probably exclude WDG, DL, ID, DE, VS and KoE from this). Work out what one unit per army really is utterly rubbish and just needs to be redesigned. Figure out a redesign that doesn't fundamentally change the flavour, and a backup i…

Anyone could explain me his role? Is better than The club un some scenarios? I have a very cool model and i LOVE The concept but i really dont know why i have to play with this equipment Cheers ” It was literally stronger in previous incarnations (as in, bigger bonuses).
