  • 1. Rule/unit/Item/over all feel/strategy Warhounds 2. What is the problem? No reason to take them as they are very expensive and there are better chaff options 3. Why is it a problem? No one will take them. They are 20 points a model for chaff that can be very easily shot off before they move as they have no armour now. They can only march 8 in first turn making them useless as a chaff unit now. Everybody would be happy to pay 40 points more for a light troops unit that can march 20 and get in a…

  • Just throwing this out there WAR OF THE NEW AGE

  • Question for the design team. Did the team want the army to be more MSU or MMU?

  • Quote from Krokz: “Comparing 2.0 prices with 1.3 is just wrong. Play 2.0 meta, compare internal choices etc. @Feynn Non combat rules are there to give flavor to the army. If cost is inflated because of them that means units will not be used and/or WDG will not be competitive, so prices will go down. Design should not be a prisoner of pricing overlords. We design as if pricing is perfect for internal and external balance. ” I agree on this that the design should not change as one of the goals of …

  • My primary army is WDG and my secondary army is VS. My current VS list I think would carve through this army very badly. All the crazy shooting and magic plus the sheer numbers would be too hard for the warriors to knock down the crazy numbers and then the shooting into combat would crush them.

  • Quote from Krokz: “Quote from IoRi78: “are you telling me that right now the book is fairly priced and balanced? ” Nobody knows for sure. Its all just educated guess. Its why we need games, tournaments. And another big problem is that WDG seems very competitive with some choices and that could very much be true, but the other 2/3 of the book can still be over priced. ” Good point. So IS the team is trying þo make all the options viable in the book? Cuz I can see that some options are very good b…

  • Quote from Krokz: “Quote from Exalted Champion: “Quote from Krokz: “But WDG are allowed to bring flying monstermash. Its just that heaving access to two flying monsters constitutes for just that. No one will be allowed to have more just like no one is allowed to have more than xx% in warmachines or yy% in avoidance. Just like EoS is not allowed to have two Steam Tanks even dough they can be balanced they offer gimmick play (or "negative play" as BLT says) which T9A wants to avoid. Both sides of …

  • Quote from ramesses2: “@Krokz: How did the Irredeemable models fare? all of them seem to be designed as tanks with some hitting power (the wretched beasts remind me of Nurgle beasts, in fact) but the cost seems to be really high for their actual durability. Quote from Chuck13: “I agree as well. It doesn't get stomps and the biggest problem is the 1 DS as units like slaves and goblins hit on 3+ even with low strength attacks a few will go through and with only like dis 5 and unstable it won't tak…

  • Quote from ramesses2: “Quote from Exalted Champion: “I dont understand the forsaken one. It is similiar to the old skaven hellpit monster but with way lesser attacks but with a similiar pricing. ” Got to say, I agree that the Forsaken one seems underwhelming. Random movement is good and all, but it isn't really that resilient (6 DS1 T6 wounds with Regen 5+) and it doesn't really hit that hard (1D6+3 S6 Ap 2 hits). It's role seems to be to take on monsters and a tough, resilient anvil due to the …

  • Quote from Krokz: “Quote from Enekruti: “The discussion of this issue is being centered on the flying circus and in my opinion that is an error. How does the flying circus make influence in the decission of removing wasteland trolls? At least my dissapointnent is about having models that I cannot use with 9th Age. Also making peaple changing the bases is not positive. I enjoy painting my models and that includes the bases. Again, I feel that the 9th Age is forgetting about models and only being …

  • I haven't read these posts until today and I have noticed that much of the community has had a negative reaction to the book. I can understand some of the reaction with some thing but I think the book has improved in spots as well. After reading it I had mixed feelings about many things. First thing I have noticed that overall most things went up in price. I've been trying to make a list and notice that I would be fielding a lot less than before making each unit more important. Therefore any los…

  • Rule/unit/Item/over all feel/strategy. Chaos Lord as general and expensive What is the problem? Went way up in price while getting nerfed Why is it a problem? He lost 1 on discipline and a 1 defensive skill while going up in points by 60 points. Yes he gone better movement but that can only be usefull with one unit in the book making it very situational for a point increase. Only real plus he got was getting immune to fear from armour but thats it. Plus to make him usefull he needs to be maxed o…

    Good point we shouldn't be hesitant to charge cuz then you could get a very low action game. But how do people think shaken will affect the game as a whole?

  • Shaken

    Chuck13 - - General Discussion

    Post

    I noticed that after a failed charge the player is shaken until the end of the players turn. This just simply makes it so they can't do anything after the failed charge. I was hoping that there would be more of a penalty for a failed charge. I would like it better if a unit is shaken until the beginning of that players next turn. So that way on the opposing players turn the enemy could take advantage. This would make players more cautious about lol bomb charges. Thoughts on this idea?

  • I am kinda interested to see how the soul tokens work with magic as that is a whole new layer to the magic phase for our army book. I actually would like to see more variance between army books that gives little abilities that would give the game more flavor in general. But that's just my opinion.

  • I haven't played with the new magic phase yet but I don't think it will be boring. I can see that it's more even and I like that every phase you will get something off. Plus there are times you can get a 9 to 5 phase if ur veil tokens are set up well hand still have a strong phase. So I like the change. What I like more for the army is picking spells. Before I felt like our sources were very expensive to have spells that would randomly generate so I usually played a no magic list. But now that t…

  • Quote from kisanis: “I only have a handful of older pewter VG models (and don't like mix/matching). so that block will likely be x3 ranks of 5 with a combat character what does everyone think of line formation and rat at arms? Because I have a lot of the skirmishers for chaff and a lot of rat at arms (and a block of jezzails, weapon teams, and a wheel) ” I wouldn't mind the rats with spears in that formation and maybe a grinder and an assassin that could be a cool combo.

  • Honestly im not too worried about it as they are clearly buffed quite a bit especially with the new line formation. The one good thing i love about VS is that we are a tool box army and we still posses the tools to deal with HBE. They will have a 800 point unit of SM or lions and just sit back and blast them with some rattles and magic, maybe some sling shots and shrink those units down. Then set up a charge with the VG at they will strike at the same time killing most of their unit. There are w…

  • Quote from Kathal: “Quote from Chuck13: “The bound spells would be interesting in this list as there are 3 I believe that they will have access to. So that would be a cool thing to see in action. Plus we still don't know if the shrine will give us one. ” You can run a decent full bound magic phase with WDG, if you want too. The question is rather, if it is worth it. Greetings, Kathal ” I would be interested in it or run one with like 2 bound and the EH for like 4 spells. From what I can see ther…
