  • Quote from infamousme: “Quote from Grouchy Badger: “Quote from DarkSky: “Ranged weapons do not know "supporting attacks". So the rules for supporting attacks don't apply. ” ... So if I have 3 ranks of 8 troopers, they get 48 ranged attacks? ” yeah and it's pretty good at str 4 base. ” Really? I think only the first two ranks can shoot - unles they have "Volley Fire", but Throwing Weapons don't!

  • Ich habe mich ja als einer der ersten für ein Elo-System ausgesprochen und dachte dabei eigentlich daran, dass nur die Spiele unter uns Münchnern dafür zählen. Allerdings habe ich inzwischen verstanden, dass das viel zu wenig Spiele sind, um das System richtig zu "kalibrieren". Das Elo-System funktioniert sehr gut, wenn eine ordentliche Datenmenge zusammenkommt (mehr als 100 Spieler mit mehr als 20 Partien pro Jahr). Was demnach Sinn machen würde, ist wenn weltweit alle Spiele getracked würden (…

  • Has anyone used longship raiding?

    Byron - - Asklanders

    Post

    Quote from anarkie751: “Quick question related to longship raid. Does the chief need to be upgraded to a jarl to take longship raid. The entry is confusing since both Jarl and Longship raid are in bold after the "If general" tag ” No - it is not necessary to be Jarl or General in order to take longship raid. I have to admit that this is confusing... @Eru shouldn't the "Jarl" option be indented? Or should we write: "Jarl (General only) .... 30"?

  • Quote from Searingash: “Hi, any ideas about Viking style war dais? ” I use a viking warlord riding a bear on a 50mm base. However I will probably also get this model: grippingbeast.co.uk/SWMCP01_Iv…eless--product--5350.html someday and add an additional guy to the base.

  • Was it correct to create one file per tourney or would it be less work for you to collect several tourneys in one file? Tourney 13 seems to have no VS, but there are empty pages at the end, so I don't know if something is missing...

    Quote from JimMorr: “Well most ancient cataphracts had no shields, instead two-handed lances: ” O.K. I stand corrected. In order to be able to use cataphracts with shields (I totally love the Fireforge Mongols), I would then probably field them as Warrior Knights...

  • Makhar Discussion

    Byron - - Makhar

    Post

    I'm not a big fan of the Two-Handed lances rule. From an anatomical viewpoint, I think holding a lance in two hands provides a weaker grip, than having it crouched under one arm (but my knowledge here is only theoretical - I'm not a rider, so feel free to correct me). In addition it requires a new rule - the lamellar barding - to patch up the loss of a shield. However I am a big fan of the lamellar rule, as there are many manufacturers who sell "cataphracts" with lamellar barding. Most of those …

  • New website - feedback & bug

    Byron - - General Discussion

    Post

    Great job! The new website really looks great! Quote from Kopistar: “Maybe show the last 3-4 news ?? ” I agree! The latest news and blogs should displayed on the frontpage. Then there would be a reason also for "old" players to return to the frontpage to see what's new, and not directly go to the forum. By the way: 9th Scroll is only displayed up to issue 15, but not the latest issue 16.

  • Fun tournament List, thoughts?

    Byron - - Asklanders

    Post

    I think, the minimum size for Horsemen is 8 while you can already take 5 Warhounds in core. Apart from that, the list looks solid. Just see what works for you and exchange the rest next time.

  • Ich glaube, bei mir liegt ein Fehler vor: ich habe nicht gegen den Traumdieb gespielt. Sein Gegner heisst nur zufällig auch Martin und spielt auch VS

  • Ich finde die Idee der Liga cool! Es wäre auch noch toll, wenn es zusätzlich ein Elo Ranking gäbe - denn das könnte ja saisonübergreifend laufen - falls es nicht zu viel Arbeit macht... Kertak (OK) vs. Byron (VS) 18 : 2 Refused Flank, Spoils of War

  • Åskland 2.2 update

    Byron - - Asklanders

    Post

    @Krokz What about the question in the first post? Do I understand correctly, that marauding giant stays as in v2.1 with the addition of a Shield?

    Post

    Thats good! But as I'm currently working on the "standalone" book, I will just replace the options.

  • Åskland 2.2 update

    Byron - - Asklanders

    Post

    Quote from Asklander book v2.2: “Use the Trolls unit entry in the Orcs and Goblins Army Book with only Ice Troll Type to choose from (cannot choose Cave Troll or Bridge Troll) ” I think this statement is ambiguous, if Asklanders can choose Common Trolls. While it is clearly stated, that only Ice Trolls can be chosen, Common Trolls are not explicitely mentioned in the exclusion list...

    The WDG Chief has obtained a Trophy rack for 25 points. Do I assume correctly that the Asklander Chief has no access to that as it is not mentioned in the army special rules? Edit: it seems the trophy rack was formerly known as warband standard... so it is to be replaced by the battle standard...

  • @Eru yes, this is the actual Asklanders book! I'm considering your offer to join the LATEX team... what I would like to do next is to code the Makhar book as well and come up with a clever way to integrate WDG, Asklanders and Makhar into a common library, so that the work (and the error-proneness) for updates is reduced. But therefore I have to dig deeper into the code. All I did for now, is to modify the WDG (in less than a working day). But then this is all, someone writing a hombrew book need…

  • @Eru many thanks! All layout problems have been resolved - except for the missing artwork. My LATEX skills have become a bit rusty lately, but when I started to understand, what you have been doing there, I have to say that you did an amazing job! I have uploaded a new "proofread" version: mediafire.com/folder/u686j19pk5yns/Asklanders Could anyone please confirm if the file is accessible?

  • I have stumbled on the LATEX template for slim armybooks and tinkered around with it to create a consolidated book for the Asklanders. Please don't print it yet, as it is still full of errors... But you could help me proofreading, while I try to sort some major issues. Maybe someone from the Layout Team or @Eru could help me with some LATEX problems (I am using MikTex 2.9): - The font Caladea is not found - even though it is included in the template and also should be part of MikTex 2.9 - The ic…

  • Quote from TheGodOfCakes: “Quote from Byron: “ ” I've been thinking about using the Thunderwolfs, but it looked like they had robot bits here and there. Have you greenstuffed that or are there enough parts to make 3 models without any robot parts? ” there are optional Bits to replace most of the Robotic Parts, but some still remain an have to be removed. The only part, that I was not able to remove were the saddle straps
