  • Grind attacks would be nice indeed, will do about the same but without the convoluted "pass an armour save with a natural 4+"

  • Quote from GarrethSw: “Quote from Nongor: “Parry rarely benefits us given our high stats, so battle focus would be a really cool idea for the shield. It also means we don’t have to come up with another rule, as battle focus already exists. It sounds like a great way to lower complexity and get a better outcome. ” If your DS is higher then the OS of your opponent, parry provides +1 DS. Warriors shield could give +X DS in this situation (def boost : DS 7/8 and you get distracting level defense aga…

  • Quote from Happy Aspid: “Quote from umbranar: “Quote from Happy Aspid: “The amount of dead bodies unfortunately affects combat resolution. This is why 20 sloth warriors is better than 30 unfavored. If you are going to break after the first round of melee, additional bodies will not help. ” 30 unfavored warriors could have more ranks tho and so easier steadfast. ” Could you provide with actual numbers of models per rank and the final price? The second question - is it going to help against someth…

  • Quote from Happy Aspid: “Quote from Col. Tartleton: “I feel like superstition is pretty universal. The most civilized groups like Rome and China were very superstitious. The least civilized tribes were also superstitious. Seems to be a human thing. I would argue Warhammer style orcs are relatively practical. I see them as bold and direct risk takers. If a bird poops on you, you wipe it off and keep going about your business. Unlike humans they haven't assumed that the bird was trying to warn the…

    Quote from Grouchy Badger: “Quote from Pellegrim: “for my friends ” whad they change with the new book? ” alot, biggest issue is pricing tho

  • So background had to make fluff with the eight pointed star in mind, and you guys had to make rules with in this case 7 sins + father chaos :p. Think a little more working together would have helped?

  • Aint it in the 40k lore that Orcs protect themselves and stuff by painting it blue and it works because they believe it does and some strange thing happens? Yellow blows up better, red moves faster etc?

  • Quote from Giladis: “Quote from kisanis: “spiked shields: Optional upgrade At the start of each round of combat you can choose whether the model is using the shield as a shield, or as paired weapons. (or some variation thereof) ” That is just a superior version of HW+SH or PW and does not achieve the goal of the design and that is to promote Sword and Board Warriors in comparison to other weapon combinations. ” As Armour is our Army strength, maybe just allow faves of at least 5+ or 6+ no matter…

  • Quote from badman341980: “If you field a hellmaw, you could smash a chosen chariot somewhere turn 2... That is, if i read the rules correctly? ” In turn 1 magic phase you set up a portal, provided you have omnimous gates, you can teleport turn 2. Turn 3 you can declare charges.

  • Quote from Krokz: “Quote from Fleshbeast: “Random suggestion: if we are lookin at marks, would we consider making the Marks and Gifts (for the Lord) the same and essentially the Chosen Lord simply chooses a second Mark? It would free up complexity for the Doomlord to have mutations or similar because he can’t get gifts/marks. ” We did consider this option, but background said that you can only pledge to one god, no mixing. ” How about amplified favours for the Chosen lord? just a little extra of…

  • Quote from Rothulf: “Quote from jimmygrill: “Without all other armies also having their troops downgraded, this would be a catastrophic choice... And straight nerfbatting everyone and their mother would have not gone down well with players, to put it politely ” Yes and no, the game relies on special rules... Those are what makes a unit or destroy those who have none / weak ones. With the base stats and gear of our warriors, there is no way to get strong rules on them with a decent price, hence s…

  • Sloth not that situational though, there will always be 1 or 2 turns of just marching before combat and for that, sloth protects you against ranged fire, even against handguns or what I encountered in my last battle Jezails.

  • Quote from Happy Aspid: “Quote from Aegitru: “Since Father Chaos seems to be closely linked to beyond the veil stuff, for example with EH, I'm guessing his gifts would be also linked to the veil rather than accentuating human sins. So perhaps sorcerers are the closest to what we can call Father Chaos' followers? From the army book they seem to have seen much more of the immortal realms/hell than the average ascending warrior, especially because they seem detached from human sins. So perhaps the …

  • Quote from Happy Aspid: “Quote from umbranar: “Aren't the Barbarians the one who prove themselves first to become warriors and warriors on their turn try to prove themselves to become chosen? Although according to the lore, they come from pretty much everywhere if even Saurians are accepted in the ranks. ” As far as I understand - you don't need to prove yourself to be accepted in Warriors, since all it takes is to sign up contract to sell your soul. As soon as you part with it willingly - Fathe…

  • Aren't the Barbarians the one who prove themselves first to become warriors and warriors on their turn try to prove themselves to become chosen? Although according to the lore, they come from pretty much everywhere if even Saurians are accepted in the ranks.

  • Quote from Kasocles: “GW bases aren't their supposed size anyway so... ” Experienced this last Friday where 5 dread knights in closet fit snuggly on a 125x50mm movement tray without issue but 5 chaos warriors are about 2 mm too wide to fit.......

  • Pretty old one, checked that one on your channel already New one pls

  • Your army : Wdg - Opponents army : VS- Score : 10 - 10 - MVP Wdg Unit : Chosen (Greed) - Lvp Wdg Unit : Exalted Herald. Exalted herald got magicked to death in Turn 2 by divination magic from the Vermin Daemon.

  • Bit harsh, last Friday I played my first WDG battle against VS and I had a blast. With barbarians and warhounds to screen my chosen units and my warriors I was able to get to the other side pretty well. All in all it was a 10-10 due to last turn mistakes I made, else it would probably have been 13-7 or so. As suggested here many times, some units I wouldn't take without change and others are just way to expensive. Spiked shield felt lackluster. I do love the chosen with greed favor as a real Swi…
