    Well i agree its hard, but it's also a pretty interesting game mecanism. Not really realistic, but for the game, it add lot of tactical interest. ( and be sure like EoS player i hate those ambusher ... .. Always take me 15 minute additional to find how to deploy)

    I also miss, some cheap item. For exemple i miss the 6+ aegis to spend my last point at the end of a list building.

    I got similiar reflexion here : Improving the Rulebook texts post #24 But in your suggestion, it seems strange to get something about vision into the front arc definition. For me seems more logic, that front arc only talk about angle. And that is in the line of sight we talk about what we see or not.

  • @Lagerlof I dont have seen other people already answer when i wrote my message. The notification panel send me directly to last message from p.32 Without seeing there was also a p.33 i have wrote an answer to help snagash. I have added my reflexion to the answer and not just say "4+" without explain, because well i missinterpred myself the item in my last game, so seems natural... Now it become a discution.. But you start it, not my fault ok ok ---->[]

  • Quote from snagash: “Armour enchantment destiny call says armour is set to 3....this means 3+ or 4+?? Thanks in advance for your response. Regards ” The wearer gains Aegis (4+) and its Armour is set to 3 and cannot be improved beyond this. yeah this wording is confusing. To be less confusing it should be: The wearer gain Aegis set to 3 and an armour set to 3 that cannot be improved beyond this. or more simple: The wearer gains Aegis (4+) and an Armour save of (4+) that cannot be improved. Choose…

  • Quote from Giladis: “Just to inform you guys that RT is discussing the Magic Phase and especially Veil Tokens. Our current concern that has been brought up to us from multiple independent sources is that Tokens are too easily available and that magic phase is too strong. We will gather further feedback and conduct more discussion before we make any decissions whether to do any adjustments or not. So please play games, report your experiences and help us make a better game for us all ” May i ask …

  • Why compare canon and rocketeer ? They are really different. First about target, some are really better for canon, but some other are also really better for rocketeer. And second the cost difference, 70pts its not nothing. Give different build opportunity. And third there relation to artificier. I do see lot of interest for an artificier with rocketeer. But with a cnon coupled with avolley gun, yeah canon really benefit from artificier. And if we see that rocketeer need more specificity or diffe…

  • Quote from shakedown47: “What makes you think the cap is arbitrary? ” Well its a rule exception that broke the rule mecanism. That is an issue we often see in the T9A rules. That is what make them complex. All mecanism always get some exception. A good rule design dont get exception, is more easy to learn. I think this is was Shakedown means by arbitrary. Even if we can reduce complexity by improving wording, or introducing some new concept like i have try to do for the tall exception rule. Impr…

    @fjugin @Eisenheinrich Maybe this could help rules clarification team ? I beleive this i saying exactly the same things than the original rule, But original rules was 3317 letters, this wording only use 1807 And in my personnal opinion is less confusing. ( @Shlagrabak I take in consideration your comment, and modify the logic of wording for tall rule.) ---------------------------------------- LINE OF SIGHT: To determine if a model see a target, the player should be able to draw an straight line,…

  • But S4 area 2 would be really weak against monstrous infantry wich is the main target of the rocket launcher. They always get resilience 4 and somehting 5 ...

  • Quote from Konrad von Richtmark: “Or, instead of standing and shooting, you could flee and likely make the opponent fail his charge, especially if you allow some margin of error in how close to the enemy you move them. His unit spends a turn chasing after your much cheaper unit, and only manages to move a failed charge distance in a direction he might not prefer to have moved in. The legs and the lungs of our soldiers are the greatest force multipliers in existence. ” To apply this tactics, mili…

  • Quote from Ezraen: “very nice but the AREA ATTACK rule is not good for it => create a special rule to cancel the rule "area attacks X-1" during the partial Hit for this WM. ” Dont understand, what is the issue here ? You dont have to roll the area attack X-1 i think (there is not missfire during a reroll i beleive.) Quote from Ezraen: “Mantle of Ullor too situationnel, because 7 of other army has already a better agility (5 most of times). In a unit of spearmen only or if you know which kind of …

  • Quote from Konrad von Richtmark: “Support units shooting and fighting in an extra rank seems to me like quite a significant bonus to msu/mmu/mcu. When I saw the 2.0 previews, I knew that the time of the 5x4 halberdier and 5x3 handgunner detachments has come. ” Yeah you are right. I only though the comparaison betwenn 1*40 IG or 2 / 3*15

  • Agree, our army works really better. But i regret MSU dont get also some advatange. Maybe if i got model for IG with shield and sword, i would test a 3*15 IG. But dont think it can compet with the one big block buffed. Prelate hatred, Bodyguard, death warrant, and exemplar flame, all call to big block to be rentabilized.

    Quote from Shlagrabak: “Quote from Casp: “LINE OF SIGHT: To determine if a model see a target, you the player should be able to draw an uninterrupted (I suggest you regroup all things about interrupting a LoS in one sentence and all the requirements for a regular LoS in another. Better organization and less unnecessary repetition) straight line of sight (don't refer to a concept within its definition, that would be circular. What is LoS? A straight line. Careful, if you say nothing people could …

    I got a discution with @Shlagrabak and @Lagerlof about the tall rules point, that was confusing me. And my conclusion to this discution was that Line of sight, Cover, and Tall rules could be improved to removed what confused me at the origine the "count as one size bigger" into the tall rule. I share here my proposition: ---------------------------------------- LINE OF SIGHT: To determine if a model see a target, you should be able to draw an uninterrupted line of sight, from any point of the mo…

  • Quote from Shlagrabak: “Are you really saying, in the end, "please take into account that players won't read the rules"? Because there is nothing we can do if you insist on discarding half of the sentence and saying that it proves rules are confusing...etc Well of course i understand what you say. But you have also to take in consideration that each time you create an exception, you open the door to mistake. When you using a rules, you are not always reading the rule itself to be sure to get all…

  • Conclusion, personnaly to simplify the rules with my logic, i would love to read this: COVER: When you draw a LOS to a target, and more than half of the target unit's footprint is obscured: - if you can see the target over the obstruction, apply a soft cover. - If you can not see the target over the obstruction, apply hard cover.` Rule exception : - Skirmisher do not provide any cover - Standard model do not provide any cover to Gigantic model. TALL: For the purpose of drawing Line of Sight eith…

  • Quote from Alzam: “Quote from Casp: “When you read for sof cover: • Models (of any size) - • When shooting with or at models of Gigantic Size , ignore models of Standard Size for the purpose of Soft Cover. and then for hard cover: • Models of the same or larger Size than both the shooting model and its target. its seems agains a bit complex rule. Because i cant see any clear logic to how it function. If you apply the sentence it works ok. Here you should apply sentence, whitout understanding a l…

  • @Lagerlof Well personnaly i dont understand how you make to dont understand its confusing after all explanation we all have give to you ! i think you now this experience where you remove letter from word, except the first and the last from word, and nobody have trouble to read the sentence. Brain work with logical and shortcut. Writing rules means, using those shortcut that the brain will do when reading a sentence. And do not means writing a law text where every word would be essential to the u…
