  • DL 2.3. Question to RT

    nightwun - - Daemon Legions (DL)

    Post

    Is this in scope of this thread? How much does RT think we should aim to change designs before gold? How much big changes we should expect in final phase to stabilize book? on side note: Is the level of shooting power like O&G mentioned somewhere in guides? O&G can play army with 100% shooting models of 24"+ range.

    Finally got myself a game with Makhar. Used mounted goblins and orcs and super random monster pile as Karkadan Herd. (and many fillers in rear ranks) My list (Hidden Content) against (Hidden Content) Marching Columns and Breakthough I won 15-5 as I scored opbjective 1-0 Plan was to try out maximum avoidance and the Herd. I think there should not be more avoidance. And increasing its firepower would also be maybe silly. At no point did I feel somethin would be amiss, maybe a lot of uncharacterist…

    Good points that we shall be knee deep in learning new armies if we push the limits Then again TOs can and should make list of what Supplements to use and what not to use. The Gold Versions should be solid enough with worst hiccups removed. As for powerlevel... agreee Total 1 draw with 6 games, rest losses. This is attempt to make new non-militant faction work on battlefield as opposed to expanding one corner of main book like in WDG books which are actually very "historical".This is attempt to …

    I'm on the other side of spectrum. Supplements should have more trickier and experimental mechanics as we can then implement on the main books if they work out. It is perfect place to try out some new stuff. So far I have not received feedback from opponents it being complicated. I plays differently and has lots of possibilities, but basics are not that difficult to understand.

    Played one more game yesterday with cultists against HbE. Lost ofc :). I played really silly and did not get my possesed to fight at all... Noticed something we might have a look at. - Dragon got was vanguard.. that was bit crazy. My opponent forgot to abuse frenzy, and would have been catastrophe if he had... - Occultism which is the "fluff" path of army, it did not work out at all, as units do not have champion the buffs and spells are hard to use. Also the range even with veil walker is too l…

    I have time for one game tonight and was planning on trying cultists, as that is other Supplement I want to test more. What I gather on feedback is that Horse archer impact is not enough the overlap with flayers is still in favor of flayers, and Herd has not seen much plays at all. Also seems that big monster is needed to zone one flank (same with cultists). I'll check if I have time to build makhar list and try it out as we have less rounds to finetune this.

  • On magic area, tried Witchcraft in 5 games and the reduction of MR hit that quite hard (-1/-1 on last spell was not enough). Most armies had mr2 on 2 units and all spells are hexes so all casting rolls are actually -2 when it matters. This helps deathstars with augment compared MSU with hex.

    I think idol was very useful and maybe the MVP of non-daemonic parts. It was crucial in all games. Sadly KoE Scorpions killed it with 3 shots fired... but in SE game killed one unit of dryads and diverted a lot of attention to himself. In last game it had a dance with Gortach about opposing scoring unit and managed to keep that stupid model out of killing my whole army. on top of that Giant managed to kill one uinit of ambushers and one divert while doing that. The army is so low on moving model…

    Tournament over. Was fun, but bit frustrating also, as I got always shorter end and army was sadly in some cases a bit slow to play due to daemon appearance. Only played one game to 6 turns... results and lists: gowarhead.com/2019/10/t9a-autu…results-and-coverage.html some thoughst as I shall skip the battlereport part. Inquisitor: Step 7 is after moving vanguards so that rule does not work as inteded? Avatar of nature was quite deadly inquisitor... Vanguars might be bit too disadvantageous rule…

    Ah was only a concept. I think we could storm that one together here on makhar side (make new topic). As new concept designing is my favorite fun and doing it together with positive spirit my favorite thing in project Would there be interest to participate in for Unit/scenario design?

  • I'm at loss. What would you like me to post?

  • Shooting is in the end points game as it is "free rolls" unlike bad melee DL unit which will just die to CR, I think we will get that in better spot in future. I see Gigantic GDs a lot too (if you meant that), last weekend friend bashed us with Scourge with all kinds of proctetion items on in three game home tourney. I also had a lot of fun playing one tournament with Omen on his wagon. He zoned half of the battlefield with Witchcraft. Last game was only 4 turns which meant I did not get 3rd pla…

    We double all points. Make bow S1 range Pi and add DT from open terrain to all units. Nah we did some minor adjustments with points mostly. Did my favorite change as engineer and added insignificant to herd... why was that not there before... but we get it out soon. Scoring is challenge and I hope it does not hamper you overly much as I feel on fluff side that is how the roaming mounted armies operate. On sidenote if you guys plan on doing some campaigns with homebrew feel maybe add a unit we di…

    yes that! I would definitely keep Throwing weapons. Was key in winning DH mirror and getting 5+ TPs in main-event. The vampire kill and elf kills at least. Would not change anything I was mostly dubious about the 10 vanguard dwarves but they worked well enough.
