    Quote from theunwantedbeing: “Not being flanked is generally pretty easy when the enemy only has very few units that gain a benefit from doing that. Equally if it was easier you'de see more effort made to bother attempting it and the game would become tactical as a result, those huge units might go away a bit but that'll entice newer players more easily and players would spend the points on more units, again making the game more tactical and interesting. Also 6th/7th ed warhammer have significan…

  • Quote from Memnite: “Reroll to-wound item? You know you cant combine poisions with magic items? ” lol, please don't tell me that all the times the Assassin has done well for people it is because of illegal builds. ANd without those illegal combo no one takes the assassin. That would be funny.

  • Quote from Memnite: “I guess, when i dont have bolt throwers/magic/krakens to kill cowboys and monsters? I never managed to sqeeze an assasin in. BSB+Mage eat my point allowance. I dont actually see a situation in game where i would say "i wish this raptor knight unit was an assasin instead". I guess hes good if you put him in a combat block of CORE to make them usefull, but thats still spending poitns to make something BAD into something MEDIUM. Or in a comabt unit, but that doesnt need him, it…

    Quote from cptcosmic: “Quote from Peacemaker: “If you ignore positioning and opponent flanks you with his 12cav, then you are disrupted. ” sure, if you have 12 dudes, it will work but if you lose 3 of your precious knights its over (except for KoE ofcourse) and not everyone will invest into 12 mounted knights, especially not when they fall into the "elite" category where you will have something between 5-10 models as they are too expensive for more. one or two get most likely killed before comba…

  • Quote from Squirrelloid: “Unused Units Harpies (i'm not saying they're bad, I just don't like the aesthetic in the army) ” Take a look at my Plog in my signature with pictures of my Dragonlings(count as harpies) and you'll feel different Quote from Nemeroth: “@Peacemaker love that analysis and couldn’t agree more. ” Thanks! I'm glad someone read that wall of text I wrote. Quote from Nemeroth: “Amulet of spite, very difficult to get dispel bonuses in v2.0 so I won’t be using, especially with Mora…

  • Their postal service strikes every couple years as well. Or something.

  • Quote from lokobarroko: “Ive one question. Does HBE, with divination as the only path (as Furion had, for example) use to pick the HBE hereditary spell to soak wounds? is it worth it to cast the spell + 1/2 veil tokens for that? Or is just better to pick 4/4 spells from divination? Btw, excuse my poor english xD ” Always take the HBE herreditary. And you cast it last so your opponent will probably let the other spells through and save his dice to stop the Hereditary. Then it's up to the dice rol…

    Quote from cptcosmic: “problem with steadfast is that it is a binary rule that allows you to deliberately ignore positioning with little penalty. no, the lost models arent the penalty. the lost models are the result of the CC phase which would have been lost anyway regardless of positioning or steadfast. it is another "point and click" mechanic that needs to be looked at. ” Got any examples of this? If you ignore positioning and opponent flanks you with his 12cav, then you are disrupted. Even wi…

  • Quote from Lagerlof: “LD5 is fine, just as passing a LD2 test is. My issue is when you kill 45 goblins and the last one felt like being unbreakable was the only sensible thing. ” You don't know that little goblins life story! Maybe he had some insane courage for some goblin related reasons that us humans can't understand. Quote from Lagerlof: “But I don't think anyone in this thread is going to talk anyone over from the other side Just use IC as a house rule, it's not fit for tournaments. ” Very…

  • Quote from Lagerlof: “So that's 1000 CR against 3 ranks, banner and a charge. Now imagine the Persians snake eyes and fought until the last man standing. ” Then they will fight in the shade. Quote from Lagerlof: “I can see Gandalf riding down that hill with the Rohorrim, "Remember, there is a 1/36 chance they will be unbreakable and fight to the last Uruk! If that happens, we are probably f*cked." ” For this to be true they would have to get 1/36 chance to be unbreakable every round. If people w…

  • Quote from bluu: “6 scoring units, 27 bows + 3 bolters should be enough to challenge most lists and objectives. ” So you lose Capture the Flags mission, unles of course they also have lots of scoring units that are easy to kill. Granted, it is only 1 of 6 missions.

  • Alrighty, here is my comprehensive analysis. I will note that only some of this is my personal preference as I do love me my Dread Elves but I also have a very keen analytical brain that I'm switching on here. But its still possible I could have missed some cool combos for something or other, or haven't had the time to test out something that in theory is great but on the table lacks that tiny extra element. I will go into detail on some of them, for others it is fairly obvious and there are pag…

  • lol, the week I was going to order some mini's is the week they redid the website. ...which is why I even found this thread. ...probably for the best. It's making me actually start painting my massive amounts of other stuff.

    I think you guys are all bonkers. Steadfast is great. Learn to Flank. The only real rule change I've read here is making it so you need 10 dudes in 2 rows to be steadfast instead of just having 5 dudes. When you get that low on model count I think the stubborn stuff is better reserved for units with that actual rule. Or changing the flanking mechanism for disrupt since alot of cav units are capped at like 12 models. And fast cav can't even get ranks.

  • interesting. obviously not enough data to do any changes with for most stuff besides the stuff they nerfed like flaggies. I think the chaff in EoS is fine with having low movement. Especially with chaff in core being an option. gunline armies with good defensive stuff can quickly become OP if they have high move chaff.

  • spartans are unbreakable. when they were finally defeated it was because there were no more of them left.

  • ah, just like the Sylvan Elf thread. for Dread Elves: Repeater Auxillaries are Underused.

  • ....looks like the dread elf slave master is cracking the whip!

  • in their last posts on here they said they are doing major changes. Not just a website redoo, but changing their production from casting to 3D printing. ....that's alot of work. I don't think they have much time to respond as of yet.

  • Competitive players don't like it for the reasons the reasons they stated about risk vs reward vs luck. You finally that super combo off and opponent rolls double 1's. As someone who has read a fair number of historical battles, I like the 1/36 chance of the unit holding against all odds. Battle of Nasby during English civil war is a great example. As a general you have to deal with random factors on the battlefield. But since this is a game the competitive players won out. Which is fine. Would …
