  • Faced a DL list with triple Herald on Pulpit, I'm both convinced and not conviced about them now. It was silly.

  • DL is pretty up there when it comes to memorization of stuff. Unless we're talking about mounts, in which case - Does anyone even use the DL mounts? I've yet to see a Harbinger on anything but its own legs.

  • It probably would be, but having any unified rules remains a millstone hanging on our necks, less in the "it will be" way and more in the "it might be" way.

  • Yet that's been the plan for nearly three years now, especially you should be aware of that, @WhammeWhamme, given that you have access to those discussions.

  • The background basically must be written simultaneously for both, because both armies function within the same rules within the SETTING, and any changes to mechanical parts of Undeath must be agreed upon by the teams of both armybooks as well as the background team. If they are not done at the same time, then neither the VC team or UD team will be able to make any sort of changes to how Undeath functions rules wise, because the book that isn't updated would then be affected by these changes. One…

  • When the eventual LAB happens it's likely going to happen simultaneously with VC so the undead as a whole will be fleshed out within the setting, and both armies will probably be pushed further apart, though in what ways who knows. I can guess that VC will continue to be mass with dirty tricks and crazy characters while UD might move towards being an elite army, since that's the route we're already on basically.

  • MY CHARIOT BRICKS! NOOO!! What reason is there to even live if I can't have my 12-chariot deathstars!?

  • If memory serves me right, there was a big debacle about point costs and combat stats and 'paying for things you don't use', essentially. There were two camps - Those who just wanted a spellcaster and those who wanted a fighter, and the compromise was to settle on just having armor, but which made us originally decide on creating an upgrade to turn a Sorcerer into a combat wizard. This upgrade was later subsumed by Hero's Heart, and never got off the floor again for different reasons, the larges…

  • Sloth HW dudes are expensive as heck, but if their job is to just sit down and stay alive, then it's a pretty solid option. The increase in defense against S3 and S4 high-AP death is super notable. You could make a case that just taking 5 additional bodies is better for that though, I think the math comes out really painfully close. I think that throwing Zealots on them pushes it towards Sloth being the better choice since they can go wide and lose the bodies that can hit a bit slower.

  • Had a quiet night at work yesterday, and since I'd forgotten to bring my study books I spent the time scribbling instead. Cleaned it up and wrote it down on the computer, so here - The saga of the Mad Blacksmith...In limerick form! Warning: Crappy limericks ahead - (Hidden Content)

  • Quote from Happy Aspid: “Dont want to be a downer, but I always thought that armor is actually part of a deal. You sell your soul, in return you get armor suit that you can't remove, but that improves your physical capabilities (all while replacing soul). If hellforged armor was possible to get without pact with d gods, then there would be much more fallen and forsworn in this world. ” Nothing says the armor can't be 'gifted' by the daemons giving someone the ability to craft it themselves, or j…

  • Not as darkly amusing and unique as an insane blacksmith who manages to brawl and forge his way up to the very top of the totem pole and probably doesn't even realize it, being singularly focused on his goal of crafting the ultimate armor. Could be a dwarf, though...Doubly amusing, actually - A M7 swiftstride dwarf, just a tiny ball of violence coming at you in absurd speeds, violently screaming something about "steel folded a thousand times" or "three months in the forge" in an un-intelligible …

  • Quote from matrim: “Almost not quite He was a sunna worshipping empire man. His forge was blessed by priests to harness the sun's energy. He set out to build an armour set fit for sunna herself. Started with the armour, forged the steel 3 times to ensure it was the hardest metal that cannot be penetrated by mundane weapons. Then he started to forge the shield, but the sun was setting... The dusk is when the veil is strongest and the separation between mortal realm and Deamons realm weakest. As t…

  • These days, yes. The current build I use is - Chosen Lord: General, Trophy Rack, Favor of Envy, Idol of Spite, Spiked Shield, Symbol of Slaughter, Thrice-Forged, Dusk Forged, Ranger's Boots, Dragonbane Gem

  • On the Lord? I think that was the earliest version of the build, this happened two months ago. So it must have been this: Chosen Lord: Favor of Envy, Daemonic Wings, Spiked Shield, Symbol of Slaughter, Thrice-Forged, Dusk Forged

  • The only time my Rocketman has lost a fight thus far against non-character units was against Empire halberdiers, where he, hitting and wounding on +2, manages to cause 1 wound with his 7 attacks and takes a wound back through his re-rollable +1 save, without even causing a spiked shield wound. Then the halberdiers roll a 11 on their pursuit, running him downand getting them half an inch out of the LoS of my 10 Chosen. Dice be wild sometimes.

  • Less talking, more raiding

  • Damned chariots went way too far in their grinding power, it's the first thing that gets tuned back when there's a chance.

  • Quote from Laurfelt: “Aren't you risking that the enemy just ignores the wardogs, moves up full speed in the middle, and you are unable to get away from all the free charges you have set for them turn 2?? I mean, 10 dogs in a congaline is a looong line and only your fliers will be able to fly over them. Would love to see some pics of how you do this ” I wanted to come back to this for a third time - This response feels really similar to a lot of stuff I've spoken about in other games, especially…

  • No - Because I'm not enough of a fool to fall into a trap like that. Or to elaborate, this is not something I'd do if there was a risk of my opponent being able to pull a nasty outplay on me.
