    Please could we bring a bit more of mutual understanding? You're not talking about the same thing. @Squirrelloid You're right that new official factions with Legendary, balanced AB will be severely limited. It has already been mentioned officially, the existing 16 factions will be joined by no more than 2 additional ones. This said: - official factions are not limited to 18. It is only official factions balanced for tournaments. There will be many more than official 18 factions, all completely o…

  • 100% certain that Background Team knows how fans are/were attached to the late Warhammer Orc & Goblin fluff. 100% convinced that they will deliver a 9th Age Orc fluff which will be even more attractive. (Hidden Content)

  • 100% certain that we will not have the perspective of a WarHammer Orc.

  • Quote from Ghiznuk: “4th Age, 2000 years ago ? So you are confirming that the 9th Age is about 1000 years old, and that Ages 5, 6, 7 and 8 lasted together only 1000 years, that is, as much as the sole 9th Age ? ” I cannot remember where I took these notes from, but it looked indeed like: - the 4th Age alone, - the 5-6-7-8th Ages together, - and the 9th Age alone lasted each a bit less than a millenium. However I cannot confirm that, only give a strong educated feeling.

  • Quote from Auto2: “Quote from Calisson: “creating Homebrew illustrations for official Slim AB ” yes which books do we know will not get FAB treatment between now and, for example, Jan 1st 2022? ” This nobody knows. The furthest we ever discussed internally would have been books eligible to be considered in 2019-2020. But you can guess quite accurately by yourself: those AB which are working well (good enough internal balance, playstyles doing what they are supposed to do) and which communities a…

  • Quote from Auto2: “Do we know which FABs are likely to be the last ones? ” The last ones will be the currently non-existing 17th and 18th factions, one of them possibly the Iron Crowns (mercenaries from Arcalea), the other one undertermined. Quote from Auto2: “A few people are interested in releasing illustrated Army Books but obviously this doesn't make sense if a FAB will be released in the next 1-2 years. ” I am not sure to understand. Do you mean creating Homebrew illustrations for official …

  • Well, you're right if you restrict your knowledge to the publicly released background. In the internal, non-disclosed background, Monopatea is shown on some maps near the "Broken Isles" archipelago, south of Avras. Also, there is an internal wiki about it, confirming its location south of Avras. Not very accurate, admittedly. The RL equivalent would be Crete, which was conquered by the Ottomans only in 1645, two centuries after the fall of Constantinople (1453). In any case, the choice is up to …

  • Well, the Avrasian Republic is a thing of the past. However, Monopatea resisted the VS invasion. Quote: “Owing to its impregnable fortress built on a rock in the sea along the coast just south of the capital,it is believed to be the only province of the ancient empire to have survived, at least in part, destruction at the hands of the Swarm. While it now relies on horsemen from the hills and other levies for its military security, there remains a small and secretive – but deadly – cadre of profe…

  • Actually, there is a dedicated place to check that. This is the rotating band at the home page. I happen to be the one to update it every now and then. One picture (the one with the Sylvan Elf ready to shoot) mentions: Quote from home pate rotating band: “RELEASES: 2nd Edition Gold delivered on 21 December 2018 in its Slim Edition. Legendary Edition hoped in March 2019. ” I tried to maintain there in a sentence telling what is the last major release and the next one. The link is towards the last…

  • I meant, unless I missed something, there is no rule which allows a non-character unit to join another unit except if it is a War Platform.

  • Why is the Consul among special troops, and not characters? Especially if the intent is for him to join troops.

  • Goblins have commonly been mentioned since the Middle Ages. Orcs are probably a distortion of ogres, and Tolkien have used them before WW2 in his Lord of the Ring books. Ratmen exist in DD, probably inspired from the 1816 story The Nutcracker and the Mouse King. The only word you mention covered by GW's IP is Skaven, and we do not use that word in T9A. The Vermin lore in T9A has been developed mostly internally, but large parts are publicly known, in particular how they took the power in Avras d…

  • You're right. No plant nor fungus, T9A OG are officially blood and flesh creatures.

    Quote from Natasake: “1. I can't see any good reason why this army should not be official 2. and be allowed to be played a tournaments. ... Of course, according to this, every tournament could allow Nippon or comparable armies, but as a regular tournament player (and former organizer), I made the experience, that many fear the work for this or are missing the guts (because others complain about the army). ” 1. Cannot be official because the standards for "official" requires a lot of work from th…

    RT will never recommend anything about Homebrew. That's entirely up to you guys. What I can do is to give you recommendations if I understand what are the options and what are your goals. So what is the question exactly?

  • I believe nobody qualifies exactly. I was the one who received first the bad news, because I provided him some help in a job hunt. @Sir_Joker attended the funerals.

    Quote: “Nonobstant je tiens à porter à votre attention, Sieur Calisson, qu'il est exceptionnel que je laisse ma nature profonde prendre les commandes de mon langage. ” Exemple de parler Gobelin avec un fort accent étranger.

  • Reminds me of chimpanzees. IIRC. Sometimes alpha is challenged by beta and friends. Alpha meets contestants one by one, starting by weakest, and subjugates. Hardest to subjugate is beta. If anyone does not concede, a short fight happens. If beta is first to fight, his chances are low. If second or third fight, chances are higher. If alfa lost any fight, beta wins, cause the one who has beaten alfa cannot win a second fight. In any case, the looser shows extra respect to the winner and remains in…

    Précision sur le parler gobelin : Ils parlent tout à fait correctement, sauf quand ils utilisent des mots compliqués, alors ils s'embrouillassionnent.
