  • Quote from Squirrelloid: “Quote from GSbasic: “Quote from Squirrelloid: “@GSbasic I'm not saying model aesthetics are the only thing, but you can't say 'no one imagines elves in plate armor' when there are abundant elf models in plate armor. Clearly those sculptors are people imagining elves in plate armor, and since these companies are actually still in business (and covers most of the major miniature manufacturers, so says something about what people want to buy), lots more people are supporti…

Elves don't archetypally clank around in heavy armour. That's dwarves and human knights (/evil human knights). So either embrace "elves get bonuses other than their armour being plate" or lobby to have that changed to "elves d…

    Quote from Kayo: “Quote from GSbasic: “Quote from Kayo: “Whenever I fight against Dwarves, I realize that we are still far from being the elves that fight well in close combat. That army has too many elements to ruin our potential. ” My last game against dwarves was a 20-0... altar buff and academy banner makes short work of dwarves. Hardest units for us are stubborn/body guard ” Maybe it's the player I'm fighting against. He always saves my attacks with the shield wall, and when I attack him fr…

  • Quote from DanT: “Quote from CariadocThorne: “That just means making special rules to achieve a similar net effect to simply giving them S/R4 or 3+/4+ AS. They end up different on paper, but in reality, the performance is the same, so we only avoid feeling similar on paper, while adding a lot of unneccesary complexity in the process. ” Quote from Cam: “Agree, adding more and more special rules makes it harder to get new players, to play for new players and even for existing players. Just give th…

  • Quote from KiRaHyuU: “Quote from Lich King: “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? ” buddy, it’s all about In and out and Five guys now ” this could be an entire thread in its own... even though in an out is clearly superior...

  • I would strongly oppose a nerf to bolt throwers. They are a key support element. Range decrease would defeat half their purpose, blasting other war machines off the table. But as all things, points and additional rules will or will not make the range cut worth it.

  • Quote from Calisson: “Quote from noir: “What playstyle do you guys want to play? ” I love to play DE around two themes: corsair and beastmaster. I should be happy with next edition!Corsair MMU/Cav MSU, with corsairs as main units, complemented by agile raiding units. Beastmaster's Monster Mash, with heavy raptor cavalry. ” I get shamed because I always play corsairs with monster support!

    Quote from Peacemaker: “Quote from mrmossevig: “Back to the topic of ETC-lists I’m positively surprised by the variety of lists, especially given it’s a team tourney. It means that the army can be played in a lot of ways. Maybe not surprising but still interesting is the lack of non-magical Acolytes. Probably means that their role is better fulfilled either by Dread Knights (fight) or Dark Raiders (chaff). ” Its because acolytes function as mobile magic missile platforms.Quote from berti: “I wou…

    Quote from berti: “This would be a bad rule when it is also used for Auxiliarys. Forcing them to march (and therefore lose shooting) will for sure not make the unit viable. ” Considering their range will likely decrease, they will probably have to match first turn anyway?

  • Quote from Calisson: “Quote from Ozzy666: “I just had this thought - Apart from mounts and monsters the only non-elves are Medusas and Harpies. Medusa's rule set indicates Medusas are daemons, which makes them easily acceptable. But what about Harpies? 1. Are they an intelligent species? If so, they cannot be slaves (since DE don't use slaves for military purposes). So why do they fight for DE then? 2. Are they a sub-species/sub-breed of elves? If so, they wouldn't fight completely unarmed and u…
