    that is my intent. Core filled with no enchants for all armies not just hbe. Technically that was done before with only one core banner and typically a low cost low power level item. If the caps are now removed and then every one have same requirement for core and the choice to upgrade a core unit at the cost of decreasing point available to special and characters. It realty isn't all that hard to add up core to a subtotal of 1125+ then add another 50 points to the assigned unit for a banner

    While this might add a layer of complexity i would be completely in favor of making core fill the requirement without enchantments first then if a player wants to add magic banners above 1125 pts on your typical 25% 4500, then so be it. This way no one can claim this sort of "but points from core argument"

  • I feel like they stole my ideas however. I built these way back during storm of chaos but sadly never finished them. To make matters worse i dropped a box they were in during a house move and here I just quickly hot glued halves together. Obviously a lot of repair work ahead of me. The model with eagle should have the eagle's left foot in his land and the keeper mod had a dangling Juan Dias daemonette balanced on the one finger like a pole-dancing beatuay on a Slannesh boob worm halberd. The col…

  • mono pose like others have said makes it look like she has a gimp arm. I want to like the medusa/snake body but a few features lessen it for me. the wings are huge for the model. On top of that the tail is super long with a tiny tiny head and upper torso. Proportions are out of whack even for a fantasy type model imo. Classic gw overkill why have 1 skull when you can millions. This model is gonna be whuge. Epic to the max

    What i find difficult to accept in all this, is the notion that people quite often are subtly suggesting that elves should not get the charge more often then not. Or at least are surprise that we as elven players expect the charge. I mean if elves are not suppose to be fast who is? 8th simply brought about so many means that eliminate the speed of elves it really isn't accounted for now. Yes a unit of chaos warriors or empire troops still have 4 vs 5 but yet the proliferation of so new units of …

    I agree with Aenarion's vision on some level. Dread Elves are reaching a point of they don't even need to roll to attack and wound. Opponents just make save roll on max # and see if you they can sneeze back to a victory, given lighting reflexes spreading +1 to wd, rerolls 1 etc, blood banner etc. Clear shoehorning and an example of a concept taken to far imo. While appreciate the murder glass cannon approach to differentiate DE from rest, the idea is going to far and along with restrictive cults…

    With a bsb character plus banner I have no difficulty seeing that a unit he joins and that combined unit was cc, it would get death trance. However if the banner is placed on a unit of tower guard does unit itself get death trance itself now unlike the prior 201 version?

  • Quote from Just_Flo: “ No please remember that reality is not so easy as an example. So reality might (I am not on RT or BLT, so I might be wrong) more be like Scource 1-2 say A, Scource 3 says B, Scources 3-4 say C and Scource 5-6 say D. So what to choose as the facts to work with when some of A,B,C,D don't contradict each other? ” Probably the conservative approach, change very little and re-access further on down the line when the picture might be more clear. Acting with no clear path is the …

  • Look guys I am not trying to antagonize or goad people into conflicting answers, I simply desire clear communication and talking points. To often in threads like this, subtle talking points often get missed or lost in volume. I personally believe that swiftstride is to powerful and the wrong direction for the game. I believe the prospect of full blown swiftstride on DL to be frightening and will have many unintended consequences for the game in the long run. The problem with communication in som…

  • @berti so if the 0-3 HBE banners had the correct point cost you have no issues with them then?

  • I only refer to the argument that people feel HBE having banners with a 0-3 limit is BS and feel entitlement that either their army should have the same or HBE should not. It is potentially a flavor tool. HBE= magic no? I make no reference to power of such items only the aspects that provide some identity, preferred playstyle and list creation all with a few creative changes. Could these changes have provided to high a boost? Perhaps, but my fear is that heavy handed hotfixes will not only remov…

  • Besides the period at the end i fail to see the point ??

  • I would like to refresh peoples memory and point out that historically high elves have had access to more magic items and even discounts on items that other armies had, yet paid more for as part of identity and affinity for all things magical. It seems that in all the hoopla this point is lost, only seen as a power grab rather a much requested attempt to add flavor and uniqueness. I dont think any army was as dissatisfied with the reality of how their army played and felt vs commonly held concep…

  • Looks like 2018 "dangerous" terrain tests in shallow water to me

  • Game one Siege at the Tower I charged 2 Exalted Daemons ( 2 Exalted : 1 Emissary & Avatar 1 Dragon & Sorcerer) and a giant into 23 Talley with full command with a Harbringer of Pest with Token, Bloated Purtrefaction and Div magic. I had no intentions of winning the combat I was confident i would hold this unit up on my stubborn lead 9 on two ExDs. On top of this I also knew that a 2nd 23 Talley man strong unit with a second Harb of pest BSB halberd and bloated would counter charge 1 EDs in the f…

  • Quote from Giladis: “Quote from PapaG: “Quote from Giladis: “Some interesting things here for certain. Just all still too elite for my taste. smile.png ” Intriguing! Might I ask in which realm your tastes’ “ideal” lies? ” Sure I come with a design principle where less is more. I believe the game is boated, individual unit entries got bloated in the WHFB's race to WOW the audience. Minor in setting differences were transferred into mechanics in a far more substantial way due to the limited range …
