  • Quote from PTG-Lucky-Sixes: “Quote from Lich King: “While I like the idea of setting up a campaign specific board for the reasons already mentioned on the one hand, I need to confess, that using the faction forums for this was indeed intended on the other hand. I think sharing our content with the otherwise slowly dying faction forums (Yeah, I know, there might be exceptions and right now there are all these ETC discussions going on) would be a good idea.

  • Quote from Eldan: “Hmm. Alright. With that ruleset, I should produce 15 points by Sunday for our righteous crusade. Avras for the Avrasi! ” Looking forward to reading the background for your characters then! It might be worth even more points since we'll have some polls to decide about the best contributions in each section later. Quote from piteglio: “WOW! i am SO in! tnx @Adaephon_Delat, @Eldan and @Lich King for the awesome work! ” That's what I was hoping for! Maybe Kamorko deserved his own …

It has been a right whirlwind and no mistake. All of Monday I was on the great Bridge of Destiny, an enormous stone highway that leads into the city: it’s the only way to get there! Sadly, this means that the bridge is very crowded at all times of day – an incredibly diverse throng if ever there was one …

    C'mon don't be that kind of guys please. I didn't tell you to ignore the data, did I? The data we're gathering is fine and important. But there are differences in measuring internal and external balancing of a faction. That' s it.

  • Quote from Calisson: “Please don't put burgers and fast food in the directive. And no, DE being based in T9A~North Murica is not an excuse. ” We're not talking about McDonald's, KFC or BK, okay?

    Quote from piteglio: “"the owls are not what they seem" you cant take team tournament lists statistics as a direct measure of whos boss (within an armybook). there are too many other factors influencing the choice. dan is leading us from the desert of agnosticism to the inferno of skepticism. ” I'd even go a step further and say all tournament list statistics shouldn't be used as a direct measure of whos boss (within an armybook). Most tourney players use the single tournament for preparation pu…

    I guess he wants to point out, that the fact how often the same (or nearly the same) army list is used in tournies, is not something we should base our discussions about the internal balancing of the corresponding faction on. At least that's how I would understand it here...and for me he's absolutely right. The units that are used more often in an AB mostly are the best answers to the current meta, but if meta changes, they will become outsorted again and replaced by other units in the same AB, …

    Quote from Grouchy Badger: “Quote from Kiwi: “I have to agree with ToDD on this. Going with the VC cowboy example, there were no major changes that suddenly made this viable. Someone came up with the idea one day and it just stuck. As more people used it, there became more examples of how to use it well, and so even more people jump on the bandwagon. Now every VC player is using it, So other, non VC players build lists to counter it. Suddenly it no longer does well, so everyone changes to the ne…

  • Quote from BondageGoatZombie: “This thread feels like people already choosing meals when the actual question was which restaurant they want to visit ” Actually that's the way it works. First I want to have burgers, then I decide to go to a burger restaurant.

  • Quote from Eldan: “Again, Ghiznuk is probably right, anything called Gypsy or reminiscent of Sinti or Rroma is not going to fly. ” Then call them mountain folk instead.

  • Quote from noir: “Let’s not make this into a rant again guys. Constructive feedback is what was asked for. What playstyle do you guys want to play? Here just a couple of examples to get the ball rolling: Msu Mmu Deathstar Gunline Avoidance Heavy cav Cav MSU Monster mash Flying circus Mixed arms Any feedback on this would be much appreciated. ” A mix of MMU infantry and MSU monster/cavalry would make them become interesting to me. Extraordinary melee capabilites and some way to avoid too many hit…

  • If I was asked to design a proper background for the different bloodlines I'd say: Strigoi become a Cannibalists Cult army. Replacing Barrow Guard and Barrow Knights by stronger versions of Ghouls (Ghouls on Wolves or something like that for the Barrow Knights). Working with something like a Vampiric mechanic to heal wounds. Replacing necromancer with some kind of witch doctors. Von Karnstein become a slavic themed army with gypsies and things like that who aren't able to settle due to the mount…

  • Quote from Ghiznuk: “The lists given in the WHFB6 VC AB (that's a lot of abbreviations, uh) offer already a very good idea of what we could make with those. ” Well, yeah but no. All they did was adding Imperial Troops and playing around with the units available to a bloodline army. Personally I'd go a step further and at least two steps deeper.

  • Quote from ChrisLegg: “So, all 36 teams lists were in, well formatted and within the deadline! Just to say thanks from me - it made sorting this out easy! This is the first draft. I will shortly set up a Google Doc to comment on lists if there are any errors that have been spotted. drive.google.com/file/d/1Xfj4i…BF2wKXk4/view?usp=sharing Here is the breakdown by race for the lists: drive.google.com/file/d/1qZ27C…7swYopKU/view?usp=sharing Race Count Undying Dynasties 29 Vermin Swarm 27 Warriors o…

Formations has been suggestion in the past and I think would be a blast. Might also lay some groundwork for EoS (why re-invent the wheel?) ” Eos is more of a horde army. I don’t think that there should be major similarities/ can be without one army being defunct. ” Well nothing should be copied one on one, but mechanics for formations might be functiona…

  • Quote from Klexe: “Hey guys perhaps you can help our fellow player @Lich King. He is looking for people helping him in a global campaign. This could be one great step for global events and fun. So if you are Interesse just give him a short pm and ask him. Rules you can get straight directly from him. It looks great though with many pieces of fluff and information of the whole world.! Gentlemen, I'm searching for some administrative help with an upcoming unofficial community driven campaign proje…

After that a week later three games at köllenfeuersturm in cologne on Sunday. Wish me luck. ” Stefan already told me about your game yesterday. Seem to be tough list, just as most UD lists nowadays .
