  • Quote from Auto2: “My suggestion is to avoid trying to hand-code the AI and instead use the techniques that deepmind used for alphago zero. This has the advantage that we don't have to mess around with AI code and especially that we can make changes to the game without manually recoding the AI. (Just have to retrain it, but that can be automated) So we don't touch anything to do with what is or is not favourable. We just have to 1. Make a wise choice of discretization 2. Define what moves are po…

  • Quote from Auto2: “Quote from Xeonic: “divide the playing field into a grid ” yes but it's hard to represent arbitrary angles in a rectangular grid. ” I work a bit with GIS and it doesn't have to be. You can extrapolate data, weighted or unweighted, to allow for an extrapolated value for the tray itself. That would allow the model to determine the most favourable position based on a series of weights. You can see the playing field as a raster of 1x1 inch cells. If you then place a tray with the …

  • Quote from Feynn: “This would be the change I would make: - Barbarians: unlike other I'm sure their only problem is price. Once they are cheap enough they'll have ways to be played. - Fallen: for each Doomlord allow for one unit to lose light troops, gain scoring, max size up to 20-25. Cheaper base price. - Warriors: as they are or (to favour MMU) cheaper bodies up to 20, more expensive up to 30. - Barbarian Horsemen: allow min. sized units in core. cheaper extra bodies. - Warhounds: allow min. …

  • You could divide the playing field into a grid of 2x2 inches or something, where each grid square reachable by a unit has a value between 1 and 0 determining if it's a preferable position to be in. 1 would be perfect, 0 would be horrible, this can then be weighted: 0.75 archers are within range for shooting high-value target 0.05 within average charge range of combat unit x 0.50 within General leadership range 0.25 within BSB range etc.

  • I've been discussing joining characters to units with some friends and we came upon the very rare ability to join a character to a single model unit, most of these are prevented by insignificant, supernal, towering presence etc. BUT we've found some exceptions. Could you join: 1. A Vampire Lord to a Varkolak? 2. A Saurian Warlord to a Thyroscutus (also getting a unit that is stubborn and coldblooded in the process.)?

  • Quote from Baldin: “Hi guys, I hope I post this in the correct thread. I need some help with getting miniatures that are delivered on round bases. How do, on avarage, round bases convert to squares? My main questions would be 32mm round to xx square 40mm round to xx square 60mm round to xx square 100mm round to xx square 120mm round to xx square Cheers Baldin ” The diameter of the circle should be equal to the side of the square. So 32mm round = 32mm square etc. circle-in-square-dr-tri-1.gif

  • Quote from Grimbold Blackhammer: “Has anyone found any decent tactics for using a Hellmaw? I'm convinced it is awesome but I'm struggling with its usefulness. ” Have had some success but it's pretty easy to counter it once you know how it works. It's pretty limited by the fact you can't open portals within 6" from enemy units and outside their deployment for the ominous gateways.

  • Quote from Exalted Champion: “Quote from Malda: “Try this, its updated (and also the best builder available atm) newrecruit.eu/ ” It is not updated to 2.06. Tried it a moment ago. ” You need to hit F5 to update the client.

  • @Krokz @WhammeWhamme @DanT @Happy Aspid Have to say this discussion on complexity has been one of the most respectful, concrete and constructive discussions I've read in a long while on this forum. Make the forums great again!

  • @WastelandWarrior Warriors Knights: 255 → 240 – now restricted to 0–5 Units per Army Goddamnit, that restriction is your doing!

  • Quote from AutoHammer: “Quote from Peach: “Has someone used battleshrine with or without wizzard? Or is still unused unit ” Just to clarify, if you mount a wizard apprentice on the shrine you get no benefit - it's the same thing just more expensive? ” Hmm, well the difference is the points would be taken out of characters instead of special I guess, If you want more room for stuff in special.

  • Regular two-component plumbing epoxy should work pretty well! The only basic difference is that it hardens faster and might leave some cracks, but if it's only for filling that shouldnt be a problem.

  • Quote from AutoHammer: “Quote from Xeonic: “You have plenty of large models to hide behind. ” 1) Another chariot is not a safe hiding place...2) hills exist and opponent's cannon/bolt thrower often goes on the hill ” I'm not saying it's a super competitive list, it has 1 scoring unit. It is hilarious seeing your opponents face when you start lining up 8 chariots on the board however

  • Quote from Happy Aspid: “Question - do anyone know a good Chariot Chosen Lord builds? ” Any build you'd use on a karkadan or horse lord I guess, except you get impact hits! Though I think there are better Sorcerer builds for the chariot.

    Quote from Marcos24: “@Haunted Forest you’ll be glad to know I do not speak german and used google translate. But I also left many of the words covered and half the phrase cut out intentionally for two specific reasons. Also, I have no intention of adding cute ponies into a dark art piece or setting. Your reaction 100% proved the point I was trying to make. And I’m sure that the art piece would never be allowed by the head of art and the head of background have no fear my friend ” But you promis…

  • Quote from AutoHammer: “Quote from Xeonic: “Higher quality attacks, stomp, fear. A 1+/4++ Karkadan Lord Cowboy isn't bad in itself. ” and this is better than a chimera cowboy? You really want 3HP? You can get a chimera lord up to 1+/4++ with 4HP, and you get some decent chimera attacks, and 20'' movement ” Still not saying it's better than a Chimera cowboy! I was mainly comparing it to the horsie horse. I don't want it to have 3 HP, but I don't have a chimera model, and I do have a pretty cool k…

  • Quote from AutoHammer: “Quote from DanT: “If this was changed, I would expect the karkadon mount to go up in points, because it has lost its main disadvantage compared to a horse (and the ability to hide characters in units is a strong factor when pricing mounts, I can tell you this for sure). ” But I don't see why you would get a karkadan other than to hide in a unit. ” Higher quality attacks, stomp, fear. A 1+/4++ Karkadan Lord Cowboy isn't bad in itself. And even if you can't hide it complete…
