  • Two independent timings have to converge: Kikstarter/printing, and T9A Gold. Quote from JimMorr: “I estimate that I will need at least 4-5 months from the moment crowdfunding is resolved to the moment the books are printed. Further at least a month is needed from the moment Golden Edition is released and the moment I can send materials to the printer. This includes waiting for first hotfix but also preparing the materials to be ready for professional printer (e.g. checking bleeds pictures resolu…

    Our Anteaters have only a few millenia of biological evolution towards the social insect model. They cannot have reached the same state as ants and termites, which have been selected for hundreds of millions of years. There are not families of soldiers, there are soldiers risen from families. Compare to termites, the same egg could make a worker or a soldier, the difference is made by food. For rats, they just select the strongest from litters to become soliders, but these do not reproduce so th…

    No more comment? - OK, new objective incorporated. - Fusion between two different units, after examination, it would be way too complex. Already, Anteater Column and Reinforcements are extremely complex, and I am not sure that these rules will survive long. Opinions? - Soldiers Str4, OK. Soldier training could justify. Unstable/unbreakable, what would justify that for rats playing termites? - 4 columns per rank, we could, but why would we? - Crushing Attack for column: in the rule Swarming, ther…

  • The printed rulebook is going to address partially the needs of many different users. - Collectors, interested in having a copy - Shopkeepers, to introduce the game to new players - New Players, to start playing - Old Players, to update playing Not everyone has the same needs. Putting too much will increase the cost and not interest everyone. I would assume that while the extra cost of printing more pages of the same format is negligible, everything else has a significant cost which may impact t…

    What you have read right is, in particular: Quote from Calisson: “That's all I am aware of without making extended searches. ” I have certainly missed some works I am not following, which are not in the list I provided. There are probably also many more intentions, which I am not privy of. Everyone is welcome to update.

    Quote from SmithF: “@Calisson est-ce que une version abrégée des règles (autre que le quick starter) pourrait être rédigée en anglais plus littéraire et moins 'jargon légal' ? ” Il y a plusieurs personnes qui y travaillent. Au sein de l’équipe, une "Rules Clarity Team" s'y consacre. Hors de l’équipe, plusieurs contributeurs ont fait des propositions, qui je suppose ont été lues par la RCT (j'ai bien dit la RCT, pas le RCT). J’espère que la 2e édition version Gold sera ainsi plus claire et moins …

    Quote from quadratus: “Et le travail des bénévoles qui fond les règle et juste énorme encore merci à eux !!!!! ” Au nom de l’équipe, merci . Je retransmets aux anglophones. Quote from joel127: “1. Pour éviter des problèmes légaux, nous ne pouvons pas utiliser le monde créé par Games Workshop (donc oublie Gork et Mork) 2. Tous les personnages ont été supprimés (pour la raison ci-dessus) et aussi parce qu'à priori les joueurs compétitifs s'en contrefichent. On nous a dit qu'ils allaient en réintro…

    One addition to the recap post above, as I've just been reminded by @Bugman. We would also consider an adaptation to 10mm ruleset (which is just normal T9A with ranges adjusted to smaller models, 10mm high instead of the standard 28mm). I thought that you just replace all inches (") with as many centimeters (cm) and it would be done, but there might be a few more tweaks.

  • Quote from deadbuc: “My question would be what would the future look after buying the book. And I mean if they keep doing constant updates every half a year spending 30 or 40 Euros on a hard cover book seems pointless as it will be outdated in six months. ” The intention for Gold edition is certainly NOT to have to be edited anymore in the coming years. An FAQ/erratum is never totally excluded, of course, but it is far from certain. Quote from JimMorr: “I would be careful including magic paths i…

    OK, let me start with some changes, which I hope all make sense: Added to Reinforcement an explanation about VP and that the merged unit can’t move again. Added Anteater Column to Workers, and Reinforcements to several units: Hulk, Miners, G.Rats, Swarms. Lightning Hammers rule clarified. Special equipment fluff edited. All who got Brood’s Courage have it for workers and soldiers. Nasute: Dis6 Att 3; Smith Def 3 Res 3 Att 2 Off 4 Crystal, Nests, Herders: Res 3. Miner Dis = 6. Miners got Broods’ …

  • Quote from Ghiznuk: “What do you think ? Still, are you ok with my theory of a « political capital » outside Dogoko ? ” I'd like to keep Koghi/Koghinan as it is. No problem to have a different name for their own use. No problem with having a different place where the Emperor rules, and the min trading city.

    Movement trays: see Magnetic Movementtray.com where 8-wide trays adapted to the new Line formation are announced. Previously, the Horde formation was 10 wide. By WDG standard, I mean content-wise, excluding the background. For the power level, the balance is refined as we speak, and the Gold edition will be released with all 16 armies very, very close, power-wise. What remains to be done is an examination of each army rule, each unit, each option.

    Work in progress: At the moment, most of the team concentrates on Beta rules becoming Gold. Autumn is a good bet - but still a bet. Simultaneously, a team updates the associated Quick Starter. Making swift progress, but need a stable Beta to conclude. Simultaneously, a dedicated team finishes DL. To be released very soon. Simultaneously, the background team pushes for more background to be released. Soonish as well. Simultaneously, a Campaign Team started to think about a campaign scenario. That…

  • Quote from Ghiznuk: “« Koghi » is the name of that dominant class, the people who inhabit the empire are the « Koghians » the language is « Koghinan » ” That is not accurate. See internal wiki. "the Empire of Koghi.... we all live in the shadow of the Koghinan." Koghi (no article) designates the nation, the Koghinan (with article and "nan" ending) designate the people, here in singular. In the internal, hidden background, I find mentions about "Koghi" (no article) as the name of the Empire, civi…

    Quote from Ghiznuk: “@Calisson there are 9 character classes ! I don't really mind it, as long as it's fun, but then, why do we only have 4 character classes for Vanhu, which was meant to be a more « characters » army ?? ” Vanhu has more characters in quantity (%), in quality (double or triple role, they all can lead, fight and do their thing) and especially adaptability (incredible character customability with the Ancestor Spirits). Anteaters have more variety, but look closer, each one is supe…

    Done with the first draft! Here it is. Enjoy.. and report mistakes, desires for changes etc. In particular, I know I cannot evaluate properly pts costs, so do not hesitate to suggest an adjustment. Of course, rules could change as well. It is just the first draft, so that we have something concrete to discuss about.

    A piece of fluff as introduction. I am confident that @Karak Norn Clansman will appreciate the inspiration from his Letters From Mesopotamia. (Hidden Content) I will rename Cynocephalis the Gnolls: there is an existing legendary word for them, let's use it. That is consistent with T9A habits.
