The latest issue of the 9th Scroll is here! You can read all about it in the news.

  • I like most of the ideas here! The project is still in the concept phase so specific mechanics have not been fleshed out or discussed but I know the words “versatile” has been used a lot when discussing aux. so that’s pretty similar to most of the ideas posted on here.

  • @Peacemaker I can confirm there will be BOTH elves and monsters in the new book... In all seriousness items/actual mechanics are probably a little bit in the future. I believe the conceptual stage is still going! I’m more interested in what our update will look like.

    I’m not sure what you mean? This thread was created to further engage community hobby aspect. I searched for relevant active threads before creating it. Last activity was March, and therefore over the 4 month threshold I was looking for. Besides, head of ACS wants more engagement from its team members, and for me, hobby talk is the most fun!

    Also keep in mind that the gap between each teir is way lower than ever before. In fact it’s mostly the outliers where you would see any real significant percentile changes. The last 14 man 1 day tournament I went to me and the guy who won it played our DE against each other at the top table, and both our lists were pretty infantry heavy (considered sub par). So data can’t get it perfect. It’s REALLY important that we have realistic ideas of what is considered balanced. I feel for myself that I’…

  • Quote from DarkSky: “Quote from Angord: “What are your thoughts? ” It's a cool and innovative idea. It reminds me a little of some rules I suggested for the Divine Altar rework back in the day. I made a rule something like "on a combined charge, each unit may use the roll of a different unit". It was targeted to minimize the chance of trying a multi-charge and having only one unit succeed (which can be devastating and happens quite often due to the nature of probabilities). On the issue @GSbasic…

  • Im wondering if we will have more luck trying to create better tools for hunting shooting units or clearing bunkers rather than rules that mitigate their effects. It also would fit the guidelines in regards to playing aggressive.

    Great report! I’m slowly building my DL army. It just seems like so much fun to be able to tailor so many different styles of lists with 1 army.

  • Quote from VampsinMD: “@DanT, So am I correct in thinking that most points changes will be made based on the tournament data that is available for us all to see on the army sub-forums? Also, do you know how the project handles points changes as they relate to army identity? e.g. vampire counts and zombies were taken much more than the mean for their categories. Imo that is because they are staples of the army. One who wants to play vampires, typically wants to take a vampire count and if they ar…

    Wow! Your army is beautifully done! I’ve gone with a muddy snow look on my bases (I’m not have the painter you are) but I’m pleased with the stark contrast it creates and it adds to the overall darkened look I like for DE! I’ll post a pic when I have a chance

    Quote from Alexwellace: “chaoscards.co.uk/miniature-gam…nis-genie-efreeti-p183716 - Just got this guy from my local DnD store to be my new Omen. He's pretty much the perfect size and very easy to paint for people with not a lot of time, but want striking models. Painting mine up in blues, purples and golds while painting the clear-resin sword with gem paints.

  • @Nemeroth what if they get just as good in combat as other elfs? Why are the number of shots/aim the only way to make them effective? I personally would like to see them apply a debuff

  • Quote from Nemeroth: “Quote from GSbasic: “Quote from Radian: “Why everyone here want this hudge nerf on auxiliaries? reducing their range to 18 is idiotic. they need buff not a nerf. ” I’m not sure they are going to be nerfed. The TT sees that they are clearly underrepresented. But they are trying very hard to stick to the guidelines so that each elf faction feels unique. If their range was cut to 18 but they got say 3 shots instead of 2, would you consider that a nerf? Not saying that’s what’s…

  • A couple of ideas I wanted to get documented. Hopefully a few members of the TT see it! An item/character special rule?: Once per game, all academy units may triple their march (up to a maximum of 15”). This must be declared at the beginning of the movement phase. Kinda like the great waagh, it must be used that 1 declared turn or not at all. This could help our fragile core get down the field, or late game secure an objective etc. it also fits the background that dread elves were very good at c…

    Has anyone used Victrix miniatures before? The pictures of their sprues looks fine but curious if anyone has used them. I’m very tempted to start replacing my current DE models with their Roman and Ancient Greek models. Only thing is they don’t have very good chariot models IMO

    Happy Fridays eve everyone! I would like to create a space away from the LAB process to share projects that are being worked on. Post your conversions, your favorite model, your whole army, anything that you’ve poured sweat tears and blood (especially if it was your enemies blood) into! Let’s see what the community has been working on.
