  • Good idea Dan. Perhaps the wizard should get the horse for free? It seems he is at an disadvantage when mounted no matter what, seems unfair he should pay 20 points to buy that disadvantage.

  • I really like the idea, but fear it might be too radical to win favor with the rules team. Perhaps we should be satisfied with the prelate who already works, and focus on making the KC and the horse knights work? (And by the way, I really like your suggestion for the horse knights too). Just one thing: In the old GW days Empire Knights were definitely about the glorious charge. Both rules wise in many editions, and fluff wise (Read their lore from olde army books to the end times). In my opinion…

  • 1) Small. You need to have as much of your army as possible within the bubble, while still being able to maneuver. I suggest lining your units up and practice/measure them. 2) The best answer is more shooting since we are a slow army with few units that can fight on their own. Luckily, you can get quite a lot of shooting with EoS. You can further boost your shooting by magic. I use a Divination wizard with magical heirloom and choose Altered Sight from Cosmo as my hereditary spell. This means yo…

  • If our monsters were better we would be less reliant on cannons to deal with other monsters, while having a lot of mobility and punch. Could make for some variety in lists. I say yay to beef of the Griffon, the Dragon and the Pegasus!

    Bloody MIsfire - - Empire of Sonnstahl (EoS)

    Post

    So, after playing a cosmology master on foot like every one else, I was wondering which other competitive builds there were. What do you guys think of a Wizard Apprentice with Alchemy on a horse? The purpose of this guy is two fold. First of all he will use his mobility and expendability to bring the pain to heavily armored expensive targets such as knights and mounted characters. Secondly he will synergize nicely with the flaming banner and the prelates blessings, making our enemies flammable. …

  • - What do you believe the issue with this unit is? Triple nerf and lack of a role in the army. - Do you think this could be resolved by a points adjustment? No. - If not, how would you 'fix' this unit? Make it more powerful. Keep paired weapons. And give it a purpose. Perhaps Feigned flight (The Patriot anyone?). Or like it was proposed, make it a retinue of the Inquisitor/artificer. - Do you have any additional comments to do with this unit? Try to get an exception from the stand and shoot spec…

  • - What problem within the EoS AB do you think could be fixed with a small tweak? The Imperial Prince which is never used. - Do you think this could be resolved by a points adjustment? Yes. Make him 10-20 points cheaper.

  • - What problem within the EoS AB do you think could be fixed with a small tweak? Champion guns for light infantry. The repeater gun should either come for free or be improved. The long rifle has accurate which you already have from orders. - Do you think this could be resolved by a points adjustment? No. - If not, how would you 'fix' this issue? Make the weapons free or better. Make sure they synergize with orders.

  • - What problem within the EoS AB do you think could be fixed with a small tweak? The Dragon which is never used. - Do you think this could be resolved by a points adjustment? Yes, it is too expensive. - If not, how would you 'fix' this issue? Give it a better armor save.

  • - What problem within the EoS AB do you think could be fixed with a small tweak? The Pegasus which is rarely used. - Do you think this could be resolved by a points adjustment? Yes, it could become a bit cheaper. - If not, how would you 'fix' this issue? If not a points decrease, then increase its usefulness. Better armor, speed, resilience or increased range of orders (Should go for all flying mounts)

  • - What do you believe the issue with this unit is? Not worth taking because he does not provide synergies. Magic items allowance too small to make him shine. Needs mobility or the enemy will simply avoid him. But the model on foot looks so cool - Do you think this could be resolved by a points adjustment? No the cost is fine. - If not, how would you 'fix' this unit? He needs to fill a role. This could be obtained in a number of different ways: - He could give MR in a bubble which would make him …

  • - What do you believe the issue with this unit is? He is not worth taking compared to Characters that provide synergies. His order can be obtained from the Marshall that we already have, making it less of a bonus. His can give him self accurate two times (Long rifle and order), making one of them redundant. He needs to stay very close to the artillery. - Do you think this could be resolved by a points adjustment? No the cost is fine. - If not, how would you 'fix' this unit? Make the order he giv…

  • - What do you believe the issue with this unit is? It is weak and boring to play because it cannot really do what you ought to think knights does = Glorious charges that hurt the enemy! - Do you think this could be resolved by a points adjustment? A major point drop would make them competitive, but they would still be boring. I believe a point adjustment is needed for making them worth while, but a point adjustment alone can only do so much. - If not, how would you 'fix' this unit? The unit lack…

  • This is very interesting, I look forward for your experiences

  • Thanks for the replies, I see your points. What is the general sentiment regarding multiple small units of core archers vs. one big unit? And how would you use the different units?

  • Good points and interesting builds Just one question: I usually find my BSB and general not being able to reach many units, because they are spread all over the board. Sometimes I wonder if the BSB is even worth it. If I don't spread out I usually die. But maybe that's because I have primarily fought VC and is used to playing EoS which can't function out of the leadership bubble.

  • That sounds interesting. Could you elaborate in which situation which builds would be good?

  • Ah I see. But an expensive work around eh? I mean, shooting is good but you need more than shooting to win.

  • I do not get why you guys want to spend money on 2x pathfinder chieftan? It is the extra leadership? Seems a bit expensive.

  • Quote from Maelstorm: “I think the price is the way it is because they are 1+ AS, S6 knights in core, that armour save is really one of the most important part of them, either being unupgraded^^ But yes, allowing the KC to give an order if he is general (probably at a cost) would be nice. ” And yet, they are still not worth their points Especially now since "core tax" is apparently not a thing anymore.
