    Calisson - - New army books

    Post

    Sorry for the brief off topic: Quote from Petterwass: “As a swede we kinda didn't anyway (we had one slaver colony on an island somewhere, and that was pretty much it) but still... ” en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swedish_…_of_Saint_Barth%C3%A9lemy -=-=- Back to topic, there were nice attempts to differentiate between several African playstyles, as Africa is not exactly a single nation with a united culture. T9A also has several distinct Taphrian cultures. Quote from Ghiznuk: “I guess inspiration can be …

    Calisson - - New army books

    Post

    Quote from Ghiznuk: “I think the two closest armies we have are the Beast Herds and the Sylvans, so that's the one we need to differentiate ourselves from. ” Quote from Ferkinason: “there should be some questions we need to ask: - what (despite the visual impression) does this army bring to the T9A universe? - what strength and weaknesses does the army have? - if there are similar armies with this S&W then what does the 'african army' difference from these? ” There are two ways to apprehend ASAW…

  • Quote from Calcathin: “Past publications and threads: ” Most apreciated!

  • Here I am in my element: the sea! Basically, naval battles can be envisioned at several scales: - strategic: map = worldwide; units = fleets. Example = Risk. - tactical: map = sea area with probably some coast, some islands, some harbors; units = ship. Example = Dreadfleet. - individual: map = two ships, or one ship and land; units = either individual models or small units. Example = T9A with specific terrain. Long term wishes for naval battles in T9A have been discussed already internally indee…

  • Quote from Iluvatar: “I'll let you the task of updating the news post, as a penitence. ” Done.

  • OK, you should see them in the first post of this thread. I am awfully sorry, I did not realize that graphs in the News were of limited access.

  • Don't you see the graphs in the news? I will reproduce the news in the first post - with graph, hopefully. -=-=- EDIT I am sorry: I see the graphs in the news when I log from my account, but no longer when I log off. Thank you for telling me, I could not have imagined that. @Iluvatar, Help! Graphs are visible from my account, but not with an incognito browser. Is it normal? I loaded again the graphs in the 1st post of this thread.

  • Sure! The link to the poll is in the News, but the poll is closed. Here were the questions: 0) Please choose your language 1) Please could you tell us the game size you regularly play at? 2) Could you please approximately tell us how many games you play in a month including club games & tournament games? 3) From your experience, the decision to set the game at 4500 points was... 4) Based on your experience and opinion, what should the recommended game size be set at? (Hidden Content) The associa…

    Post

    Hey everyone: you've been heard! The results of the poll are posted in the latest news: Poll results about the preferred size of the game I would suggest that this thread needs no longer to be active, and everyone should use that one instead: Discussion Thread: Poll results about the preferred size of the game. Thank you!

  • News is up: Poll results about the preferred size of the game. Here below is your chance to discuss the results of the poll. And to get replies! Bring your Note: a pre-poll publication discussion was running here: 4500 vs 5000, using educated guesses. I hope that it can be pursued in the present thread, using actual results. -=-=- Hi there, fellow fans of Fantasy Battles! As many of you reminded us (4500 vs 5000 thread), we have'nt released yet the results of a survey we held last summer - The S…

  • Quote from Karak Norn Clansman: “I dare you to make something of your own, sometime in the future, may it take years before you start if you think that's needed. Just one official army book, even if it's a variant of an existing one such as KoE. ” Challenge accepted. Let's give a try with variants of an existing one such as UD: - Commander of the Terracotta Army - Lord of the Barrow Legion So let's check: - something of your own => check - sometime in the future => miss - Just one official army …

  • Quote from Raffazza: “The question: is the project opposed to free new books that may excite the % of players that crave new armies and start broadening out the game from the GW IP? ” Actually, as I said, we are welcoming free new exciting book. -=-=- But you forgot a word in your question: "official". And this leads to a totally different answer. Quote from Raffazza: “it is a next to zero cost play for the existing staff to allow this. all it cost was a couple of hours of someone in authority t…

  • Wow, lots of replies! Let's see some of them (and let a zillion more post slip while I type). I feel that most people typing in this thread grossly underestimate the amount of work required to make each army book up to the quality of "T9A official". But let's admit that a goodwilling and brilliant independant team could assemble in fast tracks new army books, compatible with T9A fluff (I am sure we can get some indication from our BG team to avoid gross mistakes), totally exempt from IP risk (i.…

  • Oceanborn, Norsca, wolf rats, razorgor riders, a new unit or 2 to each book, Northern Dwarfs, legionnaires, phalanxes, slingers or peltasts, 2 full army books, with some fluff, in a very short space of time? All of this is possible within T9A framework. The solution, as you nicely propose, is to do it yourself. And incorporate it to the Homebrew section. The project team itself bcannot devote the many necessary hours on these ideas at the risk of creating armies and units which would not be popu…

  • But that is already what ACS do: - they do read every single community suggestion regarding their faction. - they gauge the interest by the rest of the community, the number of "likes" and the comments are an indication. - they do forward some of the suggestions, when their faction is reviewed. The issue remains, that it seems to vanish in a Black Hole and never sees light again. IMHO this is only where we need more effort. What you suggest is to be much more community led. Sure, there would be …

  • Thanks for te pursuing dialogue. If I may, I am puzzled by your persistent mention of our secrecy and our refusal to show a working draft. If this is not showing portions of a working draft, how do you rate the information released in the Rule Team Blog? See its 10th release, Issue 10 - FAQ about 2.0 and more rules spoilers, and previous ones. And how do you rate all the information provided in each faction sub-forum by every ACS in the last couple of weeks - and counting? How do you rate the in…

  • Quote from Vulgarsty: “A minor but related point is look at all the stuff on wikipedia for wfb - loads. We don't even have a page. ” It was tried. Twice. Dismissed twice. No use to try again before 2nd Ed is live.

  • @Mortus Thank you for this long testimony. What shocked me when reading it was the word: "secrecy". I know what is going on inside, I compare to what we tell outside, and still, there is a feeling of secrecy? That is frankly annoying, and I wish to understand why. Let me give a go, and please correct me or ask me more questions if I am not clear enough. <whispering> It looks like there was a conspiracy theory, telling that a selected few super-exclusive Illuminati ETC sect of players have gather…
