    And the last spoiler is about a core unit! Lately, mongrel raiders were ignored by beastlords when calling to battle. This was becaused the beastlords felt mongrel raiders wanted too much share of the loot after the battles. After this situation, the mongrels accepted their role as annoying, spareable units and promised not to ask for too much loot. Then, they smiled looking at their lord's booze... However, for now, the RT has decided to drop the mongrel raiders' cost to 95, and 7 points per ad…

    The next spoiler refers to a weapon that didn't see much use within our army. The Soothsayers have received complaints about twin hungers being too heavy to wear. Soothsayer changed some elements for this enchantment's recipe, obtaining the same result with a smaller cost, which has dropped to 40pts (down from 50). With this adjustment, minotaurs, centaurs and whoever wanting to use this weapon enchantment, will feel its power at a cheaper cost!

    And today we bring some more spoilers of 0.205! And the first one is about a character that hasn't been seen much on the battlefield lately. This character's presence in the battlefield has declined, and BH are missing the human-eating contest champion of the forest. So in order to bring him back to the battlefield, Minotaur Chieftain will now be 220pts (down from 235). This will probably make him a good option as a BSB but also as a non-bsb character. So, for example, the typical Minotaur BSB w…

    There's more! Quote from Just_Flo: “For me (acting as fill in for a 2nd BH ACS) the change to come I like most is one Monster which was seen far to few in the last monthes. A Monster which brings an Aura of maddness with it when it flies into the opponents ranks to bring havoc when your army surrounds th Opponent. Yes I am speaking of the Jabberwock. After consalting EE, tournamemt lists from the 24 biggest events we did have in stock, the armies ACS, the external/internal balance poll/survey, t…

    Exactly, changes are done little by little, because we've had some periods of time where there were too many changes in all the armies, and the focus is now on stabilization. From now on, all armies will be mostly fixed and most resources of the project will be put on making full army books. Regarding Hawthrone's curse. Have you played with it? it is a good item, mostly limited by the fact that it takes most of the point allowance in a character, and actually a quite cheap bolt thrower. I really…

    I know we'd all like more relevant changes, but this update will mostly be a few small point changes for everyone. These changes are all aimed at underused entries in armies. Don't expect the most competitive lists to have much relevant changes, but rather to have those 'underpowered things' a bit more playable. Quote from Doug_L: “Is there a strict limit - for example, one unit and one magic item change per revision? If that's not the case, why waste a change on a magic item? For example, I'd t…

    Another change that I like in our army book is regarding a unit whichhad an underused equipment option. And I'm talking about Wildhorns' shields! After consulting EE, tournamemt lists from the 24 biggest events we did have in stock, the armies ACS, the external/internal balance poll/survey, tournament results and more info scources RT saw that wildhorns' shields were heavy underused. Therefore, they realized that, living in the forests, getting a wood shield is so easy that they should not pay f…

    As a BH ACS, there are some changes in our book that I like. One of them is regarding a magical enchantment which has always shown potential, but has never seen much use because of its high cost, that would limit many builds with it. And I'm talking about the Hawthorne curse, which will drop to 70 points (-10). After consulting EE, tournamemt lists from the 24 biggest events we did have in stock, the armies ACS, the external/internal balance poll/survey, tournament results and more info scources…

    Quote from Mirdhynn: “Hello This is a question from à BH beginer: what are the different type of army lists with BH? I heard about monster mash and Ambush based armies. Is there any other ? Can you also describe these army style to give me some inspiration? thanks for your help ” I'd suggest you have a look at the ETC lists, there are quite a bit of different builds - Ambush heavy - Master wizard+Beastlord on chariot+BSB on chariot+minotaurs+double gortarch - Razortusk spam - Centaur madness - M…

    Quote from Exalted Champion: “Did anyone tried with success a big brick of mongrols with spears and banner of wild herd? On paper it looks very strong and very cheap for what it can deliver. However they need the banner and/or shamanism to deal enough damage it seems. ” They are actually quite popular in Spain! It is a cheapish unit with one-turn heavy damage option!

    Quote from oncebitten360: “So, I'm just stepping back into T9A after almost a year away from it. The first thing I noticed in the Beta BH book is that the Beast Axe is not available for Soothsayers. As one of the writer's of the original T9A BH book, I can tell you that the primary purpose of that weapon was FOR the spellcasters. Initially, it was only available to them. The idea was to have spellcasters that could survive in combat - and actually kill some minor things. (It used to improve AS, …

    So far, My take is: Underpowered (up to 10) Non-ambushing big wildhorn units Raiding chariots as core Raiding chariots as special Raiding chariots as Beastlord mount Jabberwock Giant Wildform Twin hungers Inscribing burin Hawthorn curse Overpowered (up to 5) Maybe I'm a fanboy, but I don't think we have anything we can clearly Tag as OP. There's a number of things that can overperform in certain matchups (say minotaurs), but not an overall OP thing

    Quote from Lays_NL: “For me i choose this because it gives more green match ups when playing teamtournaments. Idk if you remember my herford list, msu lot of chariots and the 3 vanguarding giants (and ofcourse the pilkager icoon, i love this item). But that list has to win first round of combat. Afterwards it doesnt do a whole lot.. the razortusks, as you can imagine, still pack a hell of a punch.

    Interestingly, there's 3 lists (out ot 15) with blocks of razortusks Denmark: 1x8 Razortusk Netherlands: 3x8 Razortusk Poland: 2x10 Razortusk while only 6+2x3 minotaurs. Any of those players want to give their feedback on why did they choose razortusks?
