    The main question for me now is: where to get models for this great book? Seen the Titanforge Fireforge Mongolians, but besides the Horse Archers I don't like them too much. Additionally I would like to focus on a lancers heavy army. Any suggestions?

    I think the best way to make it more 'ratty' again was to give it back the rule that said the next model has to be target for its shooting attack. It gives the opponent the possibility to counter it and it needed more skill for a proper use of this powerful weapon.

  • Quote from Klexe: “OOhh new idea for comp. You need to drink 1 beer in 1 go when you play UD or double dreadmill before EACH game ” There might be players for whom this would be an advantage.

    Oh my gosh! I f%&§$ing like it! It seems I need a whole bunch full of barbarians now. Though I already have 80 Barbarians on foot But I second the wish for a book without tons of cross-reference links.

  • Quote from da_griech: “Can acutally anyone tell me where all this VS and UD hate is coming from? Granted, all UD lists look the same. Is it the same with all VS lists? Are they really that over the top? Just curious... ” Would have never come up in this extent if Fred hadn't come up with his comp idea.

  • Quote from Frederick: “@Emgies - did not read cause you really care as one of the responsible persons? ” Thank god he just ignored this thread and concentrated on the new LAB instead.

  • Quote from Zwei: “Quote from Fnarrr: “@Lagerlof I think part of the issue is that there was no announced schedule for when the annual 'patches' would happen. So as a community we are kind of left in the dark, and then things like this start happening. If the official stance is "Every October after ETC results are churned through, a points patch is applied", then fine - I accept this year's meta will be UD / VS dominated, and gear accordingly. I think a lot of people would feel the same way. ” Th…

  • Quote from Eldan: “Having unbreakable Skaven would just be an utter flavour fail. Should never happen. Even plague monks were always too much. ” A long time ago skaven usually had 1-2 big unbreakable blocks. Though this is neither a valid argument nor very fitting into their ASAW. But as some kind of special case it could indeed be fitting for the disciples otherwise. Mad ratmen under the influence of hard drugs or gas, just freaking out with their flails.

    Quote from JimMorr: “Doombell could have shooting with area attack (1+X) x (1+X) and metalshifting, where X is number of Veil token burnt. But I feel that we have enough AP capabilities... ” I like the idea! Though I would make it an aura effect and the effect range should be scaling with tokens used. Would be more fitting to ringing a bell, i guess. It seems we should loose some AP anyway. Otherwise we are too much of a counter to KoE and anything else that relies on their armour saves. I could…

    Quote from JimMorr: “Next time I'll start to complain that in WFB there were cool fluffy rules just kick me. the-ninth-age.com/index.php?at…0c756143da0b759eae13056d2 ” Reminds me very much of that stupids bell in the 7th edition. Hahaha! All your Warmachines take D3 wounds due to the fact they have got Toughness 7 or more. Guess what? All mine are at Toughness 7 and have one more HP instead!

    Quote from Lich King: “Additionally I think the 0-1 restrictions for the Dreadmill lowers the power level of the whole VS book quite heavily. I don't like there are 2 mills in literally every VS list. But ask yourself 'why?' this is a fact. You'll quickly come to the conclusion it is their only zoning tool for big monsters and similar stuff the VS is struggeling to deal with since the cannon got nerfed into the ground. ” My thoughts on this

  • They target external balance problems, of course. But the overuse of the dreadmill for example is a problem that came up because of internal balance problems. Before the cannon was nerfed, there were lists with just one or even without any mills too. That's what I wanted to say.

  • Quote from Tanis: “Unfortunately I can not go to the tournament, but if everyone agrees that UD and VS have some balance problems, it is very right and fair that the organization of one of the largest tournaments in the world, makes something about this issue. ” These are internal balancing problems. You don't solve them if you only give harder restrictions to them. In fact by doing so you make internal balancing problems become external balancing problems. So in the end you'll see players just …

  • Quote from Randomus: “Quote from flam: “It's a good ETC tradition to decide important matters via collective vote of a captains. Ask captains about the comp. (But imho better without comp at all). ” Maybe we should also have this vote on important positions in the project? If anything, T9A is much more 'community based' than WTC which is strictly Frederick project and without him we would not have that amazing tournament every year ;]. ” Come on...please don't start this discussion again. It wou…

  • Quote from Herminard: “Its Fredericks tournament, and thusly his rules - if you are not happy with them, yer only option is to vote with yer feet. ” Yeah. And if you don't like the decisions made by your politicians, you should leave your country. I think it's absolutely reasonable to criticize such sensible decisions. Furthermore I don't see it as being 'Fredericks tourney' only. I appreciate his efforts as an tourney organisator very much. But if you call your tourney 'World Team Championship'…

  • The only way to penalize only those dominating UD lists instead of the whole book is to adjust the Resurection values in my opinion. Lower Chariots from 3 to 2 and Cataphracts as well as Tomb Reapers from 2 to 1. Should be enough.

    Quote from tulmir: “KOE is really good against anything without toxic, alchemy or spear spam. I am really surprised to see KOE is not popular in team tournaments. ” Especially VS are picked very often and one of their main counters obviously.

    Hey KNC, just a short question in order to sort out which models I could use to participate in the Golden Sword Contest II. In the description it was said that giants wearing cannons are allowed, hope the same goes out for Cyclops wearing big stones. biggrin.png Furthermore what about VS weapon teams or a Thunderhulks Champions wearing such a weapon? At least rulewise they are artillery weapons. biggrin.png
