    It doesn't cost quite as much as the Architects ability, since the Pharaoh needs to be IN the unit to use it. With the Crown, the cost is technically around 110p.

    That's a big part of why it should be an upgrade, it ought to be something a frontliner can use without actually impacting their ability. It gives both Ranged UW and bubble march to make it have impact in more than just shooty lists...Of course, the price got in the way of that again, but hindsight is 20/20 and all that.

    Which reminds me that I believe the Crown of Pharaohs should be removed from the magic items and made into an upgrade for a Royal, preferably a General.

  • They're plenty effective even in bad match-ups, not always totally worth their cost, but rarely a dead pick. I might be picking the shooty dudes up again, now that I can only have 8 shabti in my murderblock.

  • Cheap and spammable +1AP banners, Shabti and Reapers with S6, even Cataphracts are worth consideration now, KoE especially dislikes a super long unit appearing 1'' away from their ridiculously long flanks. KoE in general, I feel, is one of the lesser problems for UD these days.

    @IHDarklord snagged those minis I was selling up pretty fast. Thanks for adding to my ETC fund!

    Edit: SOLD. That was fast. Went through my closet, looking for old stuff and things worth selling, now that I've replaced chunks of my army with TMS models. Found a lot of stuff I didn't even remember I had, from back when I bought another TK army used. I'll put them on sale tomorrow, but putting the gallery in here already. Heck, if I'm lucky I might not even need to make a marketplace thread because some early rises just wants to take them off my hands or something. Despite the quality of thei…

  • 2x3 or 2x4 ambushing is my usual pick, I like the shock value of a large unit of MC appearing in the flank. Now they do it much more often, too!

    @grungimusic, I can personally say, about failed designs, that sometimes you start with something good, but then end up slowly toning it down until the point of release, never noticing how the nerfs stack, and at the point of release you look at them all together and just realize that you screwed the pooch and it's too late to change it. Ark of Ages belongs on that list, and it STILL hasn't recovered from that situation because we haven't had the chance to just smash the design to bits and start…

  • Not an official statement, more like a discussion started. Jumped the gun there a bit. But yeah, it's being discussed.

    To start with, I don't even think Shabti are a balance issue. They're super strong but haven't destroyed the world thus far, and as such, not an issue. I'm laying down the reasons for how I guess the BLT would have seen this stuff, since we've yet to get an official answer. As for the reasons as to 'why now' don't even look at me, I've got no clue, this whole 'hotfix' has been a dumb, hot mess.

    The designing team was not involved with those changes so all I have is conjencture and strong guesses: Shabti got nerfed to 8...I have three guesses. First being that UD are not supposed to have a MI strength, second being that Shabti are one of the strongest MI units in the game (due to Architect) and thus got hit for it, and third is that BLT considers the Architect buff to be a way of dodging unit limits. There was a time, and probably still is, when pricing was decided and one of the rules …

  • Mechanically, of course. It's still a turd. But a polished turd!

  • Redesigns not happening for now, just a quick n dirty fix to keep it actually working. Still gets a small buff, if only because it starts affecting more models than daemons.

  • Mm. Too expensive to pack two of them into a tourney army and if someone brings two into a friendly game, they're being a donkey. Lots of potential, but to me it seems more like HBE, scary on paper, less so on the field. Even one is a pain, though.

  • So Godslayer doesn't work since there's no unified Supernal rule. Currently trying to change it via improving it instead of nerfing it more.

    True. An army has to feel good for both the player and the opponent playing against them. ...Swarms were a brainfart. And that's also still why I dislike Sphinxes and their T8 shenanigans.

    "not going overboard with changes" he says after I caused the Casket to be re-designed a total of three times thus far. Fourth times the charm...?

  • Aye, among others. By the looks of things (currently) the May patch will be large, but it will be preferable if no large re-designs are made so close to the freezing of the rules, so we'll be looking at ways to keep concept and role as close to similar as possible and improvement through small changes. Which is all that the UD book needs to function for the time being anyway, aside from maybe Stalkers who need their shooting completely revamped imo. As for Cataphracts, I'd think that just gettin…

  • Quote from setepenmentou: “Rending banner is one use only so logical to be cheaper, but additionnal move make them a better threat (with the good spells) ” Don't need speed when you Ambush, which is how I use them if I use them. @Floyder Check the news for armybookchanges, rule and magic changes in their own summaries.
