  • Quote from Pellegrim: “Quote from Grahf: “.... These books are awe-inspiring, especially compared to the resources available. .. ” Bold statement. Imo CtA totally missed it's target purpose, and thus was a pretty staggering waste of effort. T9A could do alot more on "focus" of effort ” Quote from Grahf: “Try to flip through the 4 LABs, Circling the Abyss, etc. and mellow out. These books are awe-inspiring, especially compared to the resources available. If you focus only on the rules you'll miss…

  • Quote from JimMorr: “I am afraid no-one will allow us to have low Ld high Damage unit priced correctly. Nature of low Ld is randon. Such unit would perform terribly in one game and played exactly the same way in another would become man of the match... ” I don't think so. Every close combat unit should get their own job to do. For me the VG should be able to dish out A LOT of Str 4 AP 1 attacks at high initiative (good against medium infantry), plague brotherhood should dish out EVEN MORE Str 3 …

  • Quote from Adaephon_Delat: “Quote from Kdownunder: “When is the poll for challenge III Avras Trembles? ” @Lich King? ” Whoopsie! Will set them up as soon as possible.

  • Quote from Twisted Magpie: “You could always give them stubborn Ld6 so they will not have to take penalties, they'd still flee just over 50% of the time with just the 3 models, exactly 50% with a rank and just under with 3 ranks (although I still think limiting to 6 models would be a good idea). Although... As we're taking about a complete redesign I have always imagined them trundling in with the other troops and would go for allowing them inside infantry units just like caimen in skinks. Limit…

  • Quote from Lubart: “Hi everyone. We need some feedback. cHYrRJ3WfzI.jpgyVC85yiTTwg.jpgOZGy_mzbWJE.jpg ” It'd go for a octaeder instead of a rhombic dodecaeder on his staff. So number 1. instead of number 3. the-ninth-age.com/community/in…ceb67a61b32d4ab1f98e04bef And maybe have a look at the size for the blade again. The proportions look a bit weird to me. It should be a bit thinner and longer. Otherwise one could go with a more typical form of swords for egyptians like the Khopesh. the-ninth-ag…

  • Quote from Fleshbeast: “Um, Dis and lack of ranks is their weakness... they don’t need a gimped DS as they have a Dis weakness. Essentially, you want these guys in a flank or against RnF where they spank a few ranks a turn and provide more kills than static res against them. Thereby not having to test in the first place. If you get them in a fight they are going to lose with S5 R5 then you are probably being outplayed anyway or have decided the trade-off is worth it. ” You're right, but you're s…

  • Quote from Twisted Magpie: “I don't think they should lose their resistance 5. That is quite important to what makes them a viable unit without much armour, even heavy armour isn't going to cut it. Having said that, an extra round would be pretty thematic for the army and would help allot. I also would like to see the 3 model unit return, they were very good for flanking and with swift stride were fairly reliable too. My vision would be that the standard hulks be smaller units in total, perhaps …

  • Quote from piteglio: “aw man, you won't improve much if you go on like this. you should start playing against more experienced opponents! (Hidden Content) ” Listen! Master Tactician Pitelius speakin'!

It's racism against the elves. Intolerable! Lol ” Sorry, Hugo. No one likes Elves. Though ... wait a minute ... my gf is a Dr. sc. nat. in BIOchemistry AND a vegetarian.Well, maybe I do like SE.

  • Quote from Mercenary Armies: “speaking about mercenaries...her we go with one of the deadliest warrior of Avras and of this forum!! PITELIUS !!! the undefeated giant!! ” Quote from piteglio: “yeeeh, i like this dude! dont know why, but i like this dude! : D ” the-ninth-age.com/community/in…ceb67a61b32d4ab1f98e04bef Well, I see what you did there! Though needless to say, that the BH book already has got the best weapons arsenal to represent the so called 'Pitelius'. I'd just merge the following r…

  • Well, for compability reasons we already have a lot of units that may change their base size for a small reward. Actually I've played Thunderhulks without a champion + weapon upgrade in the past. Heavy armour was a nice trade for making minimized units of 4 models a bit more resilient to poison attacks and the like. Played in a 2 x 2 formation the bigger base doesn't make a big difference. So, if spliting up the entry was a problem, I'd go for one unit entry only with the following rules: place …

  • Quote from Eldan: “I´d split them into ranged and melee, honestly. The combination is awkward. Ranged type just with normal-ish hulk attacks, the upgraded one with grinding and probably AP. And a tunnel option. ” I like to see the Vermin Hulks as some kind of Roman gladiators for shows at the amphitheatre. Therefore it would make sense to give them very unique kiting options with a focus on melee combat. The Thunderhulks would rather be used by engineers to build mobile weapon platforms (with bi…

  • Quote from Grouchy Badger: “Quote from Barax: “When you download the VC rules, the VS pops up..Just so you know.. ” the rat book? ” Yeah, problem already solved! Thanks for reporting it @Barax

  • Quote from The Matt: “This has been asked multiple times now, and i haven't seen an answer. WHAT IS THE ACTUAL PRICE FOR THE BLOOD TIES UPGRADE ON LAMIA COURT OF THE DAMNED FROM SPECIAL (Not the mount)? 75pts? (As listed in book, but no change log) 90pts? (As listed in previous version) 95pts? (As per the mount version, but still no change log for it) ” Quote from Adam: “Quote from The Matt: “This has been asked multiple times now, and i haven't seen an answer.

  • Let's take a look at the bigger picture, guys. Is von Karnstein worth it? Well, it depends on your list, it'd say. I like the von Karnstein bloodline. It grants us so much flexibility and mobility! And as we all know, this game is won most of the time in the movement phase. Lists which use lots of fast and autonomous units or the double coach don't want to pay the extra core 'taxes' connected to playing a bloodline army, especially if they can't profit of the main vonK advantages. But what I lik…

  • Quote from joel127: “Quote from piteglio: “well, the t-shirt that the one on the left is wearing could be an additional clue as well, right? ; ) ” "man" ? sorry I don't get it ” Dude, it's just too obvious. Have you ever heard of a tabletop company called Mantic?

  • I'd wait for the update before investing time and money

  • Hey guys, looks like I messed things up in the rules for this sidequest. So, let me try to explain myself a bit and fix it. It was meant to be ending today...we really tried to connect it to the Cultists Supplement release and that's also what will be the reason for what is happening in the city center of Avras right now. It'll also be a significant key point for how the storyline is going to evolve further. But I wrote the deadline was in 'october' and that's how it goes. I'll accept any entrie…
