    WhammeWhamme - - Undying Dynasties (UD)

    Quote from Folomo: “Quote from LegioIgnatum: “Sacred hourglass and soul conduit is the 2 main culprits tbh. ” Looking at the data, I have some doubts about this being the main reason.Hourglass is taken in 71% of UD lists while Soul conduit is used in 37% of tournament lists. This means at most 1 in every 3 UD army uses this combination. If this combo was the main crutch of the army, i would expect to see it far more, similar to how you see might duke and dreadmills in 90%+ of KoE and VS lists. B…

  • There IS a very easy wording for that: +1 Armour, not vs. AP0. I included it right there! Semantically rephrasing it some other way doesn't change that it would be +1 armour. That's why people want it!

    It was once a rule, but is not any longer.

  • Quote from Peacemaker: “Quote from WhammeWhamme: “And the problem is that piercing resist can allow you to make an armour save against things armour should not work against. Why is it not an aegis, if it's going to be a magical protection that works against things armour does not work against? ” got an example because I'm not sure what you mean. i agree about "why not just use an aegis save" but then we are just spamming aegis saves everywhere. ” So (and this is more for someone else): 1) if it …

  • If you want to argue that the T9A rulebook plate armour should have been named something different, I'll agree. At a minimum the world "full" should have been left in there and then it would be clearer that half-plate, breastplates and muscle cuirasses were not meant to be included under that one word label (instead being heavy, light and light armour respectively). If you want to argue that the minis you picked represent miniatures that actually look well-protected, that I will not give you. (A…

  • Quote from Peacemaker: “Well if magical armour is the norm then I don't see a problem with piercing resist ” It's not "the norm". WDG sell their souls for it, and ID are the faction with the greatest per-capita ratio of enchanted objects to citizens in the setting thanks to the beginnings magitechnological industrialisation and low numbers of actual dwarves to equip. "The norm" is non-magical heavy armour, which some factions have limited access to because they're below average for various reaso…

So either embrace "elves get bonuses other than their armour being plate" or lobby to have that changed to "elves d…

    I have not used Occultism in ID, but can I also suggest a Blunderbuss (+Great Weapons) brick + a BSB with Relentless? (which is a unit I HAVE used)

  • Awww guys... Quote from Calisson: “Thank you BGT for the explanations. So much for me thinking that with my privileged access to hidden background, I could help to design Homebrew rather compatible with what BGT had in mind. I understand that it is not worth for us Hoebrewers to adjust KG. Rather, what we need to do is to enjoy it until times comes for DH to become a LAB. Not to spoil any decision (or lack or), but this may leave us a couple of years. This is part of the mission of Homebrewers: …

  • First off: my day IRL is really terrible, and my tone crossed a line. I do apologize for that. I know y'all are just trying to do a cool thing. Quote from Calisson: “@WhammeWhamme You may not realize to which point it was appreciated to have a member of BGT taking the time to read one Homebrew and mentioning a possibility to incorporate parts of it. Sad to see difficulties of communication causing your discouragement. Is there any way we could make the dialogue between BGT and Homebrew authors m…

  • Quote from Ghiznuk: “OK, this is all a bit worrying to me. If, by, « the official KG will probably not be much like the homebrew variant », you mean the army rules, then I'm kinda fine about it. But I don't see why you would have « doubts about their religiosity » ? No matter what, could you really do what you kind to keep them grounded in a fantasy version of Ethiopian culture ? And as a minimum basis, to make sure they are still an African fashion with an African flavour ?? ” My personal abili…

  • Quote from Giladis: “Quote from Calisson: “For Dwarves, there is no racial or political difference between DH and ID. The difference between DH and ID is most importantly religious, i.e. whether they use runes or magic. Anything else is cultural. Hence our Kegiz Gavem is to be considered ID, rather than DH as we did. ” Quote from Calisson: “For Humans, there is no racial or religious difference. The difference between EoS, KoE, WDG, Åskland and Makhar is most importantly technology and war tacti…

  • Like, y'all are not making an argument for elves getting plate; you're making an argument for deleting the line about "elves have high quality armour". 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 don't believe in armour, often choosing to go into battle sky-clad".

  • Elves are supposed to have high quality, not thick, armour. To veer into AD&D - in AD&D, there is Elven Chainmail. It's just chainmail in terms of protection - it gives AC5, same as regular metal. BUT it's incredibly light and unencumbering, to the point where it doesn't impede thief skills, stealth or spellcasting, Conversely, there's Dwarven Plate: +1 AC over the regular kind. These are both high quality 'mundane' armours. But only one of them is actually better at protecting you than normal a…

    Oops. Second tab is messed up because I added in Backstabbers (and other stuff) without remembering it was there (I was re-using a template I made last year). Lemme just quickly fix that... Edit: Second tab is also meaningless - I used it for WTC because I had individual scores and so it could rank things, but for this it's not important. But it's been future-proofed somewhat now.

  • Well, I would say "to give the feeling that the guys making this stuff aren't morons". If I were on the team (which I very much am not) I would perhaps suggest something like "It's Like I'm Wearing Nothing At All: Models wearing Dathen Light Armour get +1 Agility" (or +1 Advance, or whatever) Or "Frail Physique: -1 Agility when wearing Heavy Armour" (paired with a boost to the raw stat). Something like that. But that's just me, and I ain't got time to help on the DE book.

    If anyone cares, I've inputted the 11 ID lists at the ETC into a spreadsheet that tracks total number of units per army and points spent on that unit per army. docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d…ItoRZVq4/edit?usp=sharing Triple Flintlock core is back at the height of fashion (an average of two units per list), although Backstabbers make their first appearance in any of the tournaments I've done this for (thanks DanT - you inspired someone to copy your list ). Not sure if there's a more useful place,…

  • Quote from Squirrelloid: “Quote from WhammeWhamme: “As for background presence/absence - this is the RT's work, not the BGT's work (guess how I know that ). These are, primarily, the mechanical constraints. ” This is kind of a problem if you're going to do 'Background Driven Design', when the design document excludes the actual background. And if it doesn't feel better on the table mechanically, it's not going to feel like it's superior equipment. Miscellaneous bonuses that don't add to defensiv…
