  • 1) I don't want to see way more new units. This army should consist of many knights. And no matter if it was during Warhammer's several editions (okay, there have been just 2 books from the late 90s to the end of Warhammer) or nowadays - most opponents can't tell the knights apart (every real KoE players knows the name of the horse by looking at its butt...). So I don't want that many new kinds of knights. Take the 3 normal ones, add maybe one and I'm fine with it. But I would like to see a knig…

  • Yesterday I played KoE at an internal tournament. And I realised why I don't play them that often recently. Our knights are just too expensive. Other armies get better knights for less or just a couple of points more. As knights should be the main part of this army, this can't be "right". Warrior Knights don't have Aegis, but they have got Res4, Arm 6, 2 Attacks and better Off and Def. Why are our KoR so expensive than? And Grails Knights are imho too expensive too. Large Cav of other armies add…

  • I just hope DE won't be still the only army with Light Cavallry as a core unit and nearly no disadvantage (SE i.e. don't have chariots, warmachines, buff wagons or good armour). And Strider for a bargain is bad joke imho. They should not be steadfast in forests or water and not be able to field a dragon with Strider.

  • I struggle with characters charging out of an unit. "(...) any game effects that would affect the Combined Unit (such as Banner Enchantments) remain in effect (...) untill the end of the phase (...)" "As soon as the Character declares a Charge (...) it uses its own Advance Rate, all hits from Stand and Shoot Charge Reactions will hit the Character(...)." A Character charges out of an unit with following Banner Enchantments: a) Banner of Speed b) Stalkers' Standard c) Banner of Roland a) Is the A…

    I would like to see a new warmachine (Titan Forges "Dragon Organ gun" as I would call it looks to cool). And traditionally samurai used bows instead of some kind of musket or arquebuse. Yeah, samurai armies used them, but only in later centuries and many refused to use them, because of tradition or because of their honour. I would also like to see Tengu again. But because this could cause balancing problems, I would include an option for the general or the Daimyo general. You've got either acces…

    Samurai Characters on foot using a Katana look awesome and badass. I want to see them more often. And an infantry based army with Sashimonos over and over looks very impressive. It's a pity I have to force myself for using Samurai and not only Ashigaru...

  • Hereditary needs a buff imho. Nearly every other spell available seems to be a better alternative. Either switch it to the former version (Aegis increased) or increase its damage slightly. Iron Husk seems to be too expensive for models without Towering Presence. It should be cheaper for them. Mark of the Eternal Champion is too expensive for our (weak) hereditary. Chitinous Scales seems to be useless. An Armour of 3 doesn't bother anyone on a model with Res 4. It should at least be an Armour of …

    Almost ever: Harbinger (without mount) Deceiver Myrmidions (normally with Whipcrack Tail) Clawed Fiends Bloat Flies Chaff (Furies, but will be replaced by Sirens) Sometimes: Omen Maw Succubi Veil Serpents (rework/miss of Tarakin hits them hard) Hope Harvester (normal version) Hoarders Imps (won't be used without changes) Hellhounds Lemurs Hereditary Spell(will probably be never used again) Will be tried: Courtisane Blazing Glory Mageblight Gremlins Brazen Beasts Never used and probably never wil…

  • Daemon Mirror match. Unit A includes a character and activates Red Haze (character also) and fights vs Unit B which is upgraded with Mirrored Scales. What happens with a to Hit roll of 1? If the character would roll a 1 while fighting an unit without Mirrored Scales, the hit would be distributed to the unit.a Unit Apple charges Unit Banana with width 5" in the flank and wins. Exactly 1 inch away is Unit Orange (same army like Banana). Apple pursuits and rolls a 6. Is Apple now in contact with Or…

  • Dusk Forged and Special Save The description for Dusk Forged is rather short. How does it work exactly? A character is wearing Dusk Forged and Basalt Infusion and fighting several models with different rules and Agilities. At Ini 7: - A has caused 2 wounds, no modification. B has caused one wound, high AP, Flaming attack. a) Is it allowed to use Dusk Forged vs A and Basalt Infusion vs B? During the same combat at Ini 3: C has caused one wound with high AP and Flaming Attack. b) If the model used…

  • You can't shoot the war platform. You aim at the unit, you maybe just see it because of the war platform, but you shoot the whole unit. If you hit the unit despite the cover, you can decide if the strong hit is vs the war platform or vs an infantry model.

  • How many times may I raise health points with 2 models having the guiding version of Broodmother? Twice or once? The description doesn't include a restriction.

  • A large unit 'A' is defending a wall. Another large unit 'B' is covering the flank. An oppossing unit infantry with longbows (volleyfire) is in the flank of A and can draw a los over the wall, but due to is height not over B. If they shoot at A, how are there rolls to hit modified? Is there either a penalty for the covering unit or the wall? Or is this just another case where rules defeat logic?

  • I know, but people who are investing so much time and work should not pay for the full version. The community should pay their fees. If you are collecting money for a person which needs something like a rail ticket, money will always go to a railway undertaking, but at least the person you were collecting for could pay with your money

    Let's face it - despite claiming this game has nothing to do with GW's Warhammer Fantasy, there are only official armies so far with a clear alternative in this system. And after years in the making, there is not one finished army so far. Even the two which should be done and final got (massive) changes lately. If I remember right, there'll be no new army before GW cannot claim copyright for the "innovative" T9A armies, which for some strange reasons share many similarities with Warhammer Fantas…

  • Quote from Krokz: “Quote from WarX: “I just started work on both WotDG and DL. I will try to do my best! ” Somebody give this guy a medal and tool support tag@Blonde Beer ” How about paying his Battlescribe fee? His work should be appreciated.

  • Quote from AlexCat: “@Natasake why are making succubi go in 6*3 formation? 20+ succubi will go line formation and while 24 myrms dish out 24 attacks, 24 succubi do 40. ” Because as an opponent I would not play my zombies or EoS Infantry wider than 5 models. And you can't attack with more than 6 models. So I doubt you get 40 attacks. 18+6+6 is 30. And a Gortarch is in contact with just 4. So it's 12+6+6. 12 hits, 2 wounds. Flame Wardens get 15 attacks if they are 5 wide. They would get 5,5 vs bot…

  • Quote from AlexCat: “Because Succubi are better against a lot of opponents. And are workable in more different unit sizes. ” Like zombies? Or EoS with Parry? Bigger units of Succubi pay a lot for one attack or no attack added. With Fight in extra Rank, Myrmidions have just one attack per model wide less. And due to S4, wound their opponents easier. Just some examples (both 6 wide, 3 ranks) Saurian Warriors with Parry: Suc - 4,4~/ Myr -3 Saurian Warriors Spear: Suc - 4,4~/ Myr - 4 Flame Wardens: …

  • The biggest problem I have with Myrmidions are Succubi. Why should anybody take Succubi now? There are only few units against which Succubi are slightly better. And most of that units are so weak or rarely seen that nobody cares. And because most opponents don't only field Infantry with Parry and Res3, I would always choose Myrmidions. Especially because they get Lightning Reflexes for a bargain (which works against every opponent, not only against Infantry).

  • Quote from Eisenheinrich: “Quote from Natasake: “May an Omen of Savar join an unit with a Hope Harvester? ” Quote from Boomvalk: “yes ” Incorrect .Quote from Shino: “no. He cannot ” Correct . The hope harvester is a war platform and thus it gains the character model rule. And the omen got a new rule that prevents it from being part of a unit that contains another character (in this case the hope harvester). ” According to this, an enemy with King Slayer fighting a unit with a "real" character li…
