    Why do they have hand cannons and not bombards - after all rgey don’t have the penetrating rule like proper cannons?

  • i hated 4x4 etc instead of the old templates but i now really appreciate the squabble reduction, transparency and increased fareness of it. we still play that the point of impact of a miss can scatter (but obviously not still hit the originally missed unit if it doesnt scatter far enough from the centre of the original target unit to completely clear it.

  • I'd certainly change it so if one model is in arc and range they all are. Save messing about with individual agonising and squabbling.

    how is it dis 10 and not dis 9?

  • given we cater for a broad range of models and manufacturers, and given we generally frown on confusing and abusable “counts as” or “invisible upgrades”. why dont we offer more unit options as naked -ie cheap with hw, nd then offer far more weapon/armour upgrades? now this could mean i load up a missile dude with a great weapon and cover off his weakness, but, it costs more than just 2 points for the gw, and 2 points for the bow - in order to use both effectively you have to be trained - and tha…

  • wow, thanks. i love it. can anyone think of a dwarf driver model?

    Well the thing i am most fussed about is a more linear arrangement than at present so there has been a lot of interesting work put into this. Well done all.

    I still think it needs to go def, res, arm, hp Ie the order in which they become relevant to save making your eyes jump about, or if you get lost, be guided by logic/what is needed next. Every little helps with pages of stats. I mean its wholly arbitrary to have the current order so lets at least make it chronologically correct and marginally more useful

  • Hi all, inpired by a certain series of fantasy books, I was thinking of mounting an Ice Queen on a sled. I plan to use the topmhalf of the gw tzarina, but any ideas who may manufacture a suitably surly looking seated dwarf to steer it, aswell as a decent sledge (i’d rather not scratch build unless i have to) - i may add a box of turkish delight tho... I plan to use either use bears or gw wood elf plastic stags to draw it. Any tips greatly appreciated

  • I used to pin even man sized arms and legs and use a two part epoxy resin. Since I discovered gorilla superglue I don't even bother pinning big metal wings on big metal dragons. it really is that good. I did have one breakage when I accidentally put a substantial amount of my weight on a joint. very difficult to plier apart.

    i am going to play a lot of the hundred years war next year with my koe and see how the rules support that. there’ll be a few house rules for accuracy (no blessing, the “english” koe dudes get bodkins for their longbows (ap-1 at short range) and multiple shot (2) when volley firing, the “french” koe dudes get pavises for their crossbowmen (+2as vs missiles), in some games the french will get quite a few more points, but a fair bit of the battlefield will be muddy (ie dangerous” terrain. but i ho…

    Quote from DJWoodelf: “Quote from kisanis: “now, one thing about the current stat block vs linear that we run into is that...we're trained for linear. Literaly decades of linear statblocks in wargaming. in many respects I do agree that our current setup makes sense. Still, the linear system looks worth pursuing or exploring. ” other than linear wasnt really possible/necessary if you compare to warhammer FB, because- WS instead of Off and Def - no AP as counter to Arm as stat but directly related…

    lovely. much easier on the eye and you can fir more entries on a page. just one thing, i would bring agi earlier. in order, i need to know who rolls dice first how many dice they roll what they need to hit what they need to wound what modifier they impose on my oponnent save

  • .” It was agreed a change from the current situation would require an overwhelming majority preference for a base shape different than what is now.“ if only all referenda about radical change had a certain majority threshold rather than “just one more...”

  • Flails were great, they offered a real glass cannon, sh1t or bust choice. I would point them at some gw armed opponents and look to batter them into the dust, or if they didnt, delete my unit. It wasnt a boring attritional slog. “Flails, (first round bonus: +2S, -2AP)” how hard was that....?

    I had one like a castle which I got for our club to keep everybodys rolling honest. It seems like the 4th century Romans of Germania Inferior were a similar vein of shifty characters to many contemporary wargamers... Plus ça change....

  • I understand firestorm games in cardiff have a monthly tabletop sale one sunday a month - should be good for second hand stuff as It seems to be quite a big gaming community down there - Its 150 miles from london tho... firestormgames.co.uk/ I do a lot of wargames shows for second hand stuff sites.google.com/site/tringwargames/wargames-shows - my favourite being warfare in reading as i generally combine with a trip here sweeneyandtodd.co.uk/ best pie shop ive ever been to.
