    @Henrypmiller why do you think it’s not enough to have it in the downloads tab as is now? I think its the right place for it to be (rather than new tab) and should become even easier once BETA is no longer beta and all booked mive to the downloads tab Something that could be done is to add, in the Blog tab, another hyperlink in the top section (literally underneath were it says “Blog”). Call it T9A Magazine or whatever and link it to files in Downloads tab. Just an idea

  • Quote from Wesser: “Essentially an ACS is like a backbencher in parliament. ” Interesting analogy for those who are familiar with it ...moreso in recent times

  • @Ganon I find this kind of list very fun to play for a change, and can give some nasty surprises. Access to Pyro alongside 2 Tough flying Beasts and elite shooting makes some match-ups much more favourable. Some comments for you to consider: - Any way to fit Becalming banner? Maybe shuffle around with the points on Grey watchers & QG? i.e. Merge either GW or QG into single unit? - I can see many possibilities with the BSB Dragon loadout besides Nova: a) Banner of Speed & Crown of Wizard King —> …

  • @DJWoodelf @Lagerlof @piteglio Isn’t half of the pages of the new QS document actually missing? The index indicates up to 70+ pages but it has only 36 and is missing all armies, magic items and spells which, according to the index, should be there?

  • What if instead to referring to the old lore we invent the new? My take on the lore of the Sliver Spear Enchantment: (Yes I was bored ) The Blazing Dawn Spear enchantment is a symbol of the power, kingship and pride of the Elven God Wymag, one of the three faces of the Allfather and the preferred within the Highborns, father of Meladys. Legend says this enchantment was originally weaved by Meladys as a gift for his father Wymag, a weapon worth for the King of Gods. Several ages later, in times w…

    Quote from Blonde Beer: “Quote from Calcathin: “@Giladis @Blonde Beer Has there been any capacity/work being done regarding Artwork for the full-coloured Army icons of each army? We discussed this internally in the past but not sure if there has been a chance to focus on it. It would be very interesting for initiatives like this and would make the slimbooks/magic cards look even better Any possibility this can be picked up and managed as a separate track of work with an artist dedicated to it (i…

    @Giladis @Blonde Beer Has there been any capacity/work being done regarding Artwork for the full-coloured Army icons of each army?

    Oh another suggestion: Is it possible to have all Army Categories as predefined Icons and choose which ones to add? If the tool doesn’t support this then you can have two icon designs to be filled with the Initials (2) of the army category (consistent with those in the book). Is there any unit that belongs to more than 2 categories? If yes, then have 3 empty icons instead of 2. A unit belonging to a single category would still have the two category ivons, but one “empty” ( no text ) You could th…

    @Arrahed Just discovered this thread, great work! If I may suggest a couple of things: 1) Model classification (Troop type). You could define one icon for esch troop type (infantry/cavalry/beast/construct) and represent this as an icon. It would save you both from having it in left vertical text as well as under the stats. Regarding where to place it: i’d place the icon either bottom left (within vertical the banner) or top left and move the Leadership value elsewhere (i.e. Under move values/abo…

  • I like the base concept. Considering their name is “Shieldmaidens”, is this because you considering to add a shield? If that was the case, maybe m a small round shield would give them a kind of “Spartan” look which may be interesting? Shoulder armour could be smaller for them. Agree with “MSU’s” comments regarding the bow

  • @Wesser Are you that bored that you want to have some fun in that thread by defining the Tower as “a tall building”, or do you really not know anything more about it? @Giladis care to just throw some snipet here about the magic study-related libraries of the Highborn empire and about the Tower of Canreig? I think some of that was published already, may be good if you can point people (and Wesser specifically) into the right direction about magic in the Highborns society @HbE_community Question w…

  • Quote from espn: “Quote from Kopistar: “has anyone thought about : Mage, horse, light armor, gleaming robes, ring of the pearl throne ? It leaves you with a bsb of your choice and that's interesting. ” can you have gleaming robe on horse mount? the horse is tall after all, so not standard height. ” Yes you can, horsie is Standard Height. Tall only interacts for LoS purposes.

  • @ceridan81 Regarding Spear on characters: - It allows you to wield a Shield. Some elven nobles may feel more inclined to have a more aggressive role and go to battle with a great weapon, but don’t you think it is fitting that a noble elf on foot would go to battle wielding a shield? I think it’s nit only fitting but reasonable. In such case, if you are wielding a shield on one hand, don’t you find Soear is an excellent one hand weapon? Specially when your respectable mages have researched such a…

  • Quote from elendor_f: “@Ganon there were some good points regarding the cost difference made in this post: HE General and News - Discussion I am really happy to see you back @Calcathin! (I was pretty much only reading the forums back then, but regardless ) If I may ask, do you prefer a Nova cavalry BSB to a Nova cavalry Prince? ” They compete differently, difficult to compare one against each other and depends on what other character/units you’re trying to add to your list. To me the Cavalier BS…

  • Quote from Borjnfer Wraith: “It still feels like the powers to be mindset is to limit the characters-to-unit buffs options internally in order to restrain any percieved Army power creep. This policy only dulls the senses for synergy any Army should have concerning lore and internal specialization, thus watering down the Fun-Factor of this game. Something other games strive for to keep the fun alive in gaming. Characters are pretty bland now. Just plug and play in any unit, they won't benefit you…

  • Quote from Fnarrr: “Quote from Henrypmiller: “Quote from Fnarrr: “Problem is he just gains some offence, since not having a shield offsets the cloak. I struggle to see why I'd take that on a BSB even if it cost 1/3rd of the price, at 20 pts. I dont think its a cost issue really. ” Without the BSb upgrade or on a foot-prince. The fact they are on foot is such a big negative. ” Lion Prince could have legs given a decent 2-hander enchantment. There's just a weird disconnect between the Armory (wher…

I even join two lion chariot characters to a normal one to have one full rank in some battles ” My bad, got confused with the single model movement ru…

  • @Eisenheinrich Version 0.205.0 - Lion Chariot ( both as mount and as a unit, and in QRS at end of document ) seems to be missing the Light troops keyword

  • @Eisenheinrich @Giladis Version 0.205.0 - Quick one: looking at the changelog it seems the intention was to have only Frosty with magical attacks and not Flamey. This would make sense based on the new background of phoenixes. However, “magical attacks” have been added to the common offensive profile which would make Flamey have Magical attacks too. Can you please confirm?
