  • Good stuff so far, I'd also like Cyclops to come down, but as one of their only players I think it's naughty for me to ask for them to reduce. I'll keep a track of comments here, in person and on DM's and channel to the team.

  • Ok, we all know there are some issues with the points changes, some haven't change enough, some maybe missed, others too much. But, If you could make one change back/new changes to either an item, weapon upgrade, or one unit points cost wise please list them, I'll capture all we can and share on the feedback of what we are most adverse to, in order to channel it into one response. (You could also reverse one of the changes proposed already of course.) Example, >Drop Paired Weapons on Wildhorns t…

  • I think the points changes are not the best we could have hoped for, but it's not the worst either. The "Caal" list lost one unit to offset the points increases to our good stuff. The Eye is now too expensive to have on the MinoLord are an all comer item, but in teams it still has purpose as a bully against DL lists. Small changes to some units that don't change much isn't a big deal, but there were some missed opportunities to get other reductions in which is the shame, would have been good wit…

  • Quick recap of some more recent games: Another series of Intro games returning players, still early games of 9th experience. Same units as before; 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; to give him more time and experience on the table with a starting point. My list, approx. 2000 pts Soothsayer Adept on Sham…

  • Check out the main thread for BH2.0 There is a recent post in there which shows the popularity of units/choices form tournament data complied by the project. This will give you a pretty good steer on what people are playing int heir lists, since we all have different approaches and styles/purposes of lists. Clorens is right the majority is Minotaur units with shields, Mongrel Spears in Core and Gortachs for monster power, but it's not the only way, although if you wanted to know what others are …

  • I know everyone's focus is on the October events currently, but I am itching to get into this event. Cannot wait for the pack to see if there is an occasion/reason to play a Big Brother Giant on an event table in a real game again, it's just the kind of crazy custom pack with secondary missions/bridges/checker boards to complete perfect for a model with his base size. since he is nearly finished painting and there is a new hobby desk for him to sit upon now. Of course, we shall have to see, it m…

  • Let's face it if Frenzy worked as it should and prevented people using parry skill. We would only see paired weapons taken on Minos/nothing at all as the grt wpns mean we die before we get to put a hole in something. The Beast Axe is a strange one to me, go last is bad, and we are a glass cannon as many of you have said, and when you accept that you have a build that suits grtwpn more. (Flayed hide for example) I'd prefer to see the BAxe provide lethal strike and +1S instead. Then we could keep …

  • 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…
