  • Question. Does anyone use the Jotunn? He looks interesting and VERY tanky. But does he offer anything tactically that cannot be found for cheaper in the army?

    Those Victrix Vikings are VERY impressive. I am tempted to switch my WoDG to Asklanders... not gonna lie.

    Quote from Dalin O'Balin: “No Lamassu... Does anyone plays it ever? ” I played it for some time. Until everyone got used to it and knew how to handle it better. It's not happy with divination around, that's for sure. Even with its magic resistance, it is too tempting a target to snipe a 900 point model out of the sky instantly.

    It is all well and good having a unit look right, but if it creates awkward and player-unfriendly gameplay then it's not worth it. So many large units trying to move in a small space is already difficult and fiddly. Lets not try to make it worse.

    Quote from JimMorr: “Give the archers skirmisher? ” That would make deploying them and fleeing with them even more difficult and annoying.

    Quote from Krokz: “Quote from Krokz: “We certainly do not want them more elite and power wise closer to Heath riders. ” ” Ok. And Heath Riders are faster, have better bows, better combat stats, potential for Ambush, and cost more. So, you could add say 4 points worth of equipment options to Horse Archers and they are still cheaper.

    Quote from Krokz: “Lammelar Barding seems okey because they are then 4+ AS and kinda slow with March 14". IMO you still wouldn't get enough differentiation than currently (like you say, 'better horse archers'). When you have 40% allowance for shooting you want to use that allowance for best price performance you can. Unless you give them more niche roles so they are not just 'vanilla horse archers' and 'better vanilla horse archers', because if that is the case better p/p unit will always prevai…

    Quote from Krokz: “Yes. We certainly do not want them more elite and power wise closer to Heath riders. ” What do you propose the answer is then to the Horse Archer verses Flayer problem?

    Quote from Chack: “But this army should have a horde theme, so light troops cavarly with good bows and good As in core wouldn't be a good thing by design ” While true, there is a practical limit at which this army can operate. This is not the wide open plans of Mongolia, it's a 4x6 board with limited movement and deployment options. Cavalry units are on the larger side, so multiple units of cavalry has an upper limit before a critical mass is achieved and they cannot operate properly. I am not a…

    Quote from nightwun: “3+ horses should lose light troops. On the other hand 4+ could still be ok. We could also make flayers less all rounders and more focused on killing beasts with price being main tool also making flayers max 5+ and horse archers 4+ Would that be more in line with your vision of the units? ” Not quite what I meant. Let me just break this down as there is a lot to cover here. 3+ Horses would lose light troops: Why? Does 9th age design have a limit on the save of something with…

    I have no problems with Makhar Lancers at all. What I do think needs to be looked at is adding something to Horse Archers where they perform better at something than Flayers (but are not so good that they are superior outright). I think this could be done by giving Horse Archers the option to buy Heavy Armour and Lamellar Barding. This gives them a max 3+ save, and makes them more durable than other cavalry archer. (But durability does not always help a cavalry archer do its job. Speed does, whi…

    Quote from Krokz: “That is kinda the concept with many Core/Special unit relations in T9A. Some times it is intentional, sometimes not. Don't know where I would rank them up for Makhar, because it is kinda simple that you can have lesser 'horse archers' from Core and then have room for more toys from Special. There was a problem with why would you take any other toy from Special when Flayers are best toy, which results only taking Horseman from Core. In last patch Recurve Bow for Flayers went up…

    I feel like the flayers extra 2 inchs of "threat range" really adds to the recurve bows potential. So while Flayers are more expensive per extra model, they are just steroided Horse Archers at the end of the day. Although. Horse archers come with light lances, that flayers have to pay for, which has come up more than you would think. So I think it's more a case that Horse Archers come with gear that is not "necessary" to their Cavalry Archer role. Which artificially inflates their ranged cav pri…
