    Reworded the Gold caravan, which was not clear indeed. Any better? The idea is that the Salt Caravan is worth a single additional Secondary Objective, while the Gold Caravan replaces all the Secondary Objectives. Note that in that way, the Koghi player gets to control Secondary Objectives. Furthermore, he does so with a highly mobile unit, which is a clear advantage. However, this comes at the cost of the Caravan itself which is not likely to participate to any combat. The Caravan is pure pts de…

    OK for Camels. Not a fan of unit limits, because it does not scale with the size of the army, and make small armies very unbalanced and large armies too homogeneous. % categories are much better. -=-=- All right. I tried below to capture most of the ideas expressed so far, and to align as best as possible with ASAW and desired playstyle. Please comment. Note 1: I am totally unable to determine the appropriate pts value of anything, someone else will have to do it please. Note 2: Could someone pl…

    Thanks for replies. @Mercenary Armies See the whole Taphrian project here: It's time for Africa ! BH-derived AB is planned indeed, see in It's time for Africa ! the embryonic thoughts about Beast Tribes. Would you happen to be willing to develop it by yourself, with a little help from other participants? -=-=- Quote from Pomegranate: “Maybe some Savannah flavoured centaurs to supplement the cavalry element, such as antelope or zebra bodies? ” I am not aware of any Centaur legend in African backg…

    Brainstorming ideas for the army book. Cavalry should be widely available but light. Core lances with little armor, shield optional. Barded cataphracts rarer (armor weakness). Could be the Emperor Guard. Javelin available but rarer (gunline weakness).EDIT: Javelin-armed harassment cavalry, as support. Some units able to appear behind enemy's lines (ambush strength). An all-cav army must be competitive. Camels as monstrous cavalry, inspiring fear to horses, but not in core. Core Infantry of medio…

    Quote from Ghiznuk: “Remember that most pictures you see of the African savannah are taken from the top of a jeep. SO MUCH FOR « OPEN » SAVANNAH ” Well... you anticipate: 1) this picture shows the green savannah of Vanhu, not the Sahelian landscape surrounding Koghi; 2) the infantryman does not belong to the predominantly cavalry army of Koghi either, but it could be an Imperial Voselander. Seriously, for a place like Sahel, it seems hard to move without making a large dust column, let alone to …

    This thread is designed for building a T9A army based in Koghi Empire, mirroring (with some fantasy) the fabulous old Empire of Ghana and the legendary city of Timbuktu. It was initiated thanks to @Ghiznuk, in It's time for Africa ! The goal here is not merely to find an exotic setting for models. What we want to achieve is to take inspiration from some of the most glorious or fascinating pages of the History of various African peoples, and realize from that a quality extension of T9A, which wil…

    Thought about that, but that was not really necessary, given that the distributions were similar enough at first glance. I would have done it if someone had provided too unbalanced results, but everyone played it very fairly.

  • EDIT: tl;dr: The background is explained through the lenses of Humans narrators, living in the world. Some players wish to have a non-Human perspective, in order to get an internal understanding of the faction they are playing. Giladis explains why BG has this policy. (Hidden Content)

  • Sorry, but YOU are mixing two things. Im my quote, I mentioned "us". In your reply, you mention "individually". That is precisely the point. Admittedly, I do mix something, when I mention you, that is not you as an individual, but you as a representative of the BG team. I know that nobody takes personal offense, but let's clarify it once more: every individual in the BG team does a fantastic job, and I know that the whole team does what they believe is the best they think. What is debated here i…
