  • Quote from AutoHammer: “Can you explain why in 2.04 5 WK of Lust with lances (465) are more expensive than 3 CK of Lust with Halberds (459)? ” No, didn't do the pricing on any unit. I can just explain how or what I see. Is it expensive? Maybe. Does it affect the price if we talk about it and exchange personal opinions on it? No. In the end tournament data will resolve any inconsistencies in internal balance. I think we all want prices to be data driven as much as possible to avoid personal bias.…

  • Quote from AutoHammer: “Have we already seen a lot of minimum sized Warrior Knights with favors? Any in ESC/ETC/other high level play? ” No. If you haven't notice WKs got a substantial decrease of price in .205. With Favored Champion and Favors too. Pricing is an iterative process, better to do small changes and risk heaving only one unit priced wrong, then doing big change on an entry and risking the whole book being broken and consequently all data useless and distorted. Quote from AutoHammer:…

  • Quote from AutoHammer: “The 2HP champion with inflated stats is totally unnecessary for these tasks but you still have to buy him for 40 points which is 15% of the price of the unit. ” If no one will play (minimum sized) Knights with Favors then price will adept. Quote from AutoHammer: “A unit of 5 warrior knights wants to bait and flee, flank charge weaker ranked units, kill chaff or hunt war machines or archer units. ” Do not forget you have a cheaper Core alternative for doing exactly that wi…

  • Quote from anarkie751: “Does the battleshrine character mount have access to the ledger of souls/banner upgrade that the special version has access to? ” Character mounting a Shrine makes that model have access to those items. There is no separate Shrine part and separate Character part when taking magic items.

  • Quote from AutoHammer: “Quote from Krokz: “Yeah Champion price is quite drastic, afaik it was priced so high at start mainly because of extra HP which turns a Champion in Hero level character who can Challenge better than a 1HP Champion and so easily bring that extra Combat Score from Path of Favored. ” Those poor 5 warrior knights of lust though. They end up paying 105 points to be able to flee. ” correction: and +1HP and Strider and minimized Rally and March after rally. Still expensive for th…

  • Quote from AutoHammer: “By the way, can someone explain the reasoning around needing to have a favoured champion to take favours on warriors and warrior knights? ” Fluff and immersion. Yeah Champion price is quite drastic, afaik it was priced so high at start mainly because of extra HP which turns a Champion in Hero level character who can Challenge better than a 1HP Champion and so easily bring that extra Combat Score from Path of Favored.

  • Quote from Happy Aspid: “How much cheaper? ” No one knows. Depends on external balance and internal balance data. Could also be zero and Great Weapons be made more expensive if WDG external balance is over the median.

  • Quote from marotta: “Out of curiosity - which versions of Warriors do you see being viable, and in which settings? ” Currently GW bricks still look best. Most other Warrior variants compete with other entries in the book so they will need to be made cheaper to be worth it.

  • Quote from Palmu: “Goblins are un-ironically the best Core infantry in this game, though. ” giphy.gif My tears when my Warriors bounce off of Poison Spear Goblins. Dough tears are even bigger when facing Plague Disciples.

  • Quote from WastelandWarrior: “Whats everyones thoughts on zealots but keeping ranks and not going line formation? You have output like line formation but static res too? Against a lot of units the extra 8th file doesnt get to attack anyway ” My questions is more or less the opposite. I always play 5-6 wide Warriors, even with Zaelots, so I would ask why going 8 wide and limit my deployment space and battlefield movement on a unit that everyone already avoids. And going deep is useful occasionall…

  • Quote from Aegitru: “How ? Even if your armor is not reduced (because low ap or thanks to alchemy boost), that's just half the number of wound you received in str4 attacks. It's never plenty of wounds ” Do not forget best case scenario For me is plenty when Spiked Shield hits do more wounds than normal attacks. And with Word of Iron that is a common sight (if enemy is stupid enough and let you cast it). Enemy shouldn't murder himself on your Spiked shield as some expect, but it should give you e…

  • Quote from Mahlzeit: “aren’t they melee attacks already with being special attacks? ” Ah right, I wanted to say Spiked Shield should become a Close Combat Attack.

  • Quote from Kaitin: “it doesn't really matter what banner will they have. ” Of course it matters. In my experience everyone avoids big Warrior brick by default. So why would I want to make a unit everyone avoids stronger with Zaelot banner, when I can pressure opponent better with the unit if I put Relentless company banner on it? There are shenanigans with Relentless Banner I do to keep Zaelots on Warriors dough. Like putting Relentless Banner on mounted BSB and deploy him in the Warrior unit, f…

  • Quote from Aegitru: “Spiked shields for all other units as it is now is, in best case scenario, 1 or 2 wounds per round of combat. ” In best case scenario is plenty of wounds. Just get Word of Iron on them or Whispers of the Veil on opponent but yeah, opponent needs to be AP1 max. Armor becomes terribly strong when your save is 2+ instead of 3+. This can be seen on ForSworn Spiked Shield price compared to Warriors/Chosen. I'd want Spiked Shield hit to become a Melee attack, so it works with more…

  • Quote from Feynn: “Many units are just in the edge where 1-2 Rot Within make a difference ” Generally The Rot Within is better for CKs for me. Because WS3 units start hitting them on 5+ with one cast. But I know what you mean. Evocation does not have any defensive augments.

  • Quote from Feynn: “This was the basic one, I made some changes going with some Feldraks with Paired Weapons and Halberds, Sorcerer with Evo, Stalker Banner, ecc. Little but important changes. ” Evo is much better for this list. I'd also consider Banner of Discipline on Barbarians

  • Quote from Exalted Champion: “But if you are 1" to your own units, you cant wheel your FO, since you get closer then 1" to your units and therefore this turn would be illegal. Or do i miss something? ” + random movers are a lot of times deployed horizontally. So if you need to move forward you pivot the model vertically, gaining 1" of movement in the process.

  • Quote from SkavenInAZ: “The Battleshrine unit entry has Not a Leader. The mount option does not. ” All non-mount War platforms have Not a leader.

  • My last game it was: CLord, BSB, Sloth, Karkadan, Entropic Aura, Lance, Relentless Banner, Banner of Speed, Dragonfire Gem, Wyrd Stone. He starts in Core Warrior brick, enables Relentless banner and leaves the unit.

  • Quote from Laurfelt: “I simply won't believe that you'd be happy playing giant A if giant B is clearly better value for it's points. And if you actually do, I think you're in the minority. ” I think you could say that for every new entry or change of any entry in AB. Something like "Why are you putting new entries in my Army book? It is making all my existing models obsolete."
