  • Personally don’t think the placement in the tiers is all that out of place. The gap between tiers will differ and the gaps are no where near as big as they were in the past. We cannot do everything, and don’t have an answer to all problems, but nor does anyone else, that’s what create the imbalances and make the game interesting. When the price changes come through, we will see what tweaks are applied. There probably won’t be massive changes, the fact we identified outside the major concern brac…

  • With Shields is better for the plan yes I agree, although the threat to go super wide and chuck out a ton of shots is a nice trick to have in the arsenal. Likely to be changed to shields though if DS4 and distracting isn't getting the job done. Thanks, -Tim

  • Hi All, So looking at pulling together a list to play some of the suggested units less widely used. I will try out the below list on 1-2 games before making changes to the next iteration. General Idea here is to sit into a combat and bring a high volume of Static Res, and make taking less damage the priority, and win grinds on static then apply all the discipline modifiers to break targets. Spells such as -1 Res -1 Discipline from Evo, +1 Res on Shamanism, Two sets of Distracting Totems, should …

  • Team PWP are formed and laying down the first challenge of the event. Matt P, Kev S, David B, Tim B, *pending wives permissions Cheers, -Tim

  • Hi All, Just to clarify this isn't just a combination of lesser used units, otherwise the lists would be made up of mismatched chaos with nothing of reliability to build around. Where I wouldn't be using BSBs, Adepts or Masters, command groups, at all making for poor performance no matter what is happening with unit selection in a list. I took the Spear block with a combat minotaur character as a core to build around. As you have stated that kind of unit is a staple, and something that others ar…

  • I need two spots please, Myslef and David Box will be travelling the 500 miles proclaimers style to join you. Team to be added to 3 more mercs at the moment. 2 fresh new organ guns on the paint table.

  • Count me in, I am trying to bring another 1 with me, will see who else of local interest there is in this and go from there. Prefer organised teams though, even if the mercs band up on here together. Otherwise you will get a Team of 5x Dwaves... Wait, actually I like the sounds of Team 10 Organ Guns, this could be a thing....

  • So update on some of the games played with the less useful units…. Quick recap of the game setup: Intro game for a friend returning to wargames, first game of ninth. Playing 2,200 points of WotDG. Envy Warrior block, FC relentless company, Barbarian block FC flaming banner, Two adepts with some small items (all three lores used) Two warrior chariots, 3 forsworn tooled up, Purpose of the game; show him every interaction I can of the 9th age, highlighting different rules, units, moves, psycology, …

  • Still trying to decipher your comment to so I understand completely. Not everything needs to be fixed, just uses found for them. I agree some things will need adjusting/redevelopment, but there is more in the book than just bulls and mongrels with Gortach and Minolord support. I want to give some airtime to some stuff and see if it sparks anything new for people. I assure you this is a format is just for me to try out the lesser used units as seen by the forum users and feedback for people that …

  • I hear you, Cyclops as 1's and 2's is not good, the chance of damage from shooting is worth the opponents risk and they don't deliver. 0 or 3 choice. I play 3 of these as my staple list so won't try out three's on this thread, and can confirm 1-2 are a waste already. Briar Beasts will be in a/the lists as I think the Hereditary their Fear, random move charges and the Jabbers could be a thing. (Not necessarily a good one, but a thing none the less) Centaurs, I will start small for you, then try t…

  • Thanks a lot, Sure no problem, one list variant will be heavily focused on infantry Ambush units. Cheers, -Tim

  • Hi All, Quick Introduction if we haven’t spoken before, I am your new BH army support representative alongside @goatman So expect to see some new discussions from me about different elements/parts of the book, which you may have discussed previously, albeit under different rules versions, or meta changes as books change all the time. Anything you want to discuss send me a message I'll help all i can. I wanted to kick off with getting some feedback/interest in a list designed to play with many of…

  • Quote from demgear: “Minotaur Chieftan -5PPM Wildhorns -2 ppm +1 PPM for PW +1PPM for Ambush (+2PPM for ambush with Throwing Weapons) Minotaur - 1ppm GW Centigor -1PP lance Cyclops -5PPM Jabberwock -5PPM ” I like all of these, although i think Cyclops and Jabber could be more severe like -10 or 15PPM for the Jabbers. Dark Rain -5 Hawthorn Curse - 5 Briar Beast -5PPM might be offset by some tweak the other way, don't think we will just get reductions without increase. Crown +5 Eye +5 Ambush +5 ba…

    I like the list, will be interested to see how this goes. I always struggle vs Elves, so can't see much achievement there, perhaps more int he SE match up, but the DL should be a good match up for you. (without knowing player skill or their lists) Interesting to see Evocation as the lore choice as well, i am going to be trying that out soon as well. -Tim

    Nice video, but it open with "This is going to be a Minotaur list" hence all the bulls. Focus on the unit selected to be the dominating force. He also notes, "This isn't the best list" as it is what he wanted to do for the list by theme. If someone did a video on "I wan this to be an allover swarming list" it would feature Briar Beasts, Ambush, Vanguard and Scout units, and fewer/no big bricks. I believe it comes down to what people really want to use/how they want their list to do things. I per…

  • On the contrary, there are times when weird things have a purpose. It comes down to the role/responsibility of the units and their purpose as part of a larger picture. I agree the opportunity might be few and far between, but the potential is what allows the interaction to happen. I have plans for a Wildhorn infantry block in a new list idea to abuse the width it provides at times as well. we shall see if it does have a use on table as I believe it does in theory. Dan's usually got plans in mind…

    Quote from Giladis: “What do you have against Longhorn bricks? ” I just didn't like the fact an ambush, swarm over opponents style army would rank up and smash into a battleline exchange in the front like the Longhorn blocks would do. i get it that they pinned units for the flankers and rear charges to end the opponent, but not often should you elite units be the anvil absorbing damage from a battle for the chaff to come in and turn the tide. But it's just me... for BH only.

  • Quote from DanT: “I wonder if a big core brick is just structurally incoherent with BH. Certainly I struggle to recall a time in t9a or legacy where core bricks were common and BH were externally in a reasonable place. ” Spot on Dan, BH shouldn't have bricks, the idea of Ambush is that we attack flanks/rear with subsized units to make it a "fair" fight. Nothing hurt my eyes more with BH than bricks of Longhorns with GrtWpns. -Tim

  • Everybody has their preferences, and battlefield roles/item combinations to assist. I am trying to make my little bunker step up into a bigger on table role and be able to support my list more, this growth could end up with a full on effective unit when points reductions come in. I do see a small role for 15 Wildhorn with throwing weapons for me for tricky units where I want a throw away blocker. (Squig Herds/Slayers etc.) The more I think about it, perhaps Ambush/Vanguard would be a good rule f…

    Hi guys, I am afraid I need to drop form this, didn't sign up in the beginning and don't have the ability now to do two events back to back in quick succession in October. So push up one of the reserves into the event in my spot. Sorry, -Tim
