    Quote from marcema: “Isn't everything in every game dependant on not messing up or having bad luck? Even if you have chaff, it might still be that you mess up using it resulting in trouble. ” ok let me articulate more. It's unreasonable to assume you can hold the middle and both flanks. Regardless of luck. Unless it's a exact mirror match and deployment is mirrored. Hence we can assume that on one of your flanks the enemy has more forces than you. You will need to play a retreating flank. Hence,…

  • why is prince on eagle so bad? Mis matched base with kestrals, no kindreds, etc?

  • Quote from Eymuster: “Call them Tower Knights, give base attack 2, of/def6 Ridiculously expensive, but effective. also: bodyguard(prince / captain on raptor) to facilitate using larger units? ” like probably 70ppm, no thanks. I'd rather current design.

  • well guess the nerfs wasn't enough. Vc most popular army by a huge margin. And nerfed units still spammed. My hope is they all get pummeled

    Quote from Glonojad: “Well, DE are in a need of an update. Tourney stats for the number of armies in the upcoming teams' master in Krakow, Poland: Quote: “Vampire Covenant 11 Ogre Khans 10 Highborn Elves 9 The Vermin Swarm 8 Dwarven Holds 8 Daemon Legions 7 Orcs and Goblins 6 Sylvan Elves 6 Kingdom of Equitaine 6 Warriors of the Dark Gods 6 Empire of Sonnstahl 6 Beast Herds 5 Undying Dynasties 5 Saurian Ancients 4 Infernal Dwarves 3 Dread Elves 2 ” ” damn poles making my life hard.

    Quote from marcema: “No, as mentioned before the countercharge units are rhamphadons, carnosaur, taurosaurs for example. Meaning that you have to deploy your units well, when the time is right, go for action and m8 flyers, m6/7 monsters will do the job most of the time. ” This seems dependant on neither of your flanks collapsing.

    Quote from infamousme: “Let's not forget about the practical answer here as well.. hunter chariots are far easier to get a hold of than bolt throwers.... decent bolt throwers anyway. I've seen a few models, but none are as cool as the oop GW one. ” hmm? I've had the reverse issue.

    Quote from marcema: “What if, ofcourse when you play DL, maybe you cant do it with your TG. Also, with this tactic, you ofcourse should anticipate on the fact that your opponent doesn't bite. Ensure that your opponent has to or else you charge him. This tactic is build om either you charge me and i get a countercharge or if you don't i charge you anyway with multiple units. Positioning is essential, ensure your opponent cant get out of range and out of sight. Together with Ramphadons which have …

    ofc, m9 chariots are totaly different to bolt throwers. Just cause they both shoot doesn't change that.

    Quote from DeadRabbit: “hey guys, I am planing my first VC army. Which bloodline would you recommen for beginning? I thought about neferatu but this seems to be a spell slinging Vampire. I am not sure if the magic phase is strong enough to do this. The easiest way seems to be brootherhood vor lamia. I like all oth them bit I cant decide which to usw ” Is say in terms of increasing difficulty to play Strigoi Brotherhood of the dragon Lamia Vonk Nosferatu But honestly the top 3 are all just about …

  • an intermittent bug I've found is if you have a unit select some options for it. Save the list then later reload the list change the units options mainly remove. So ditch command and magic banner and weapon options. In the summary page it's rendered ok. But on the main page it still shows the options. Even though the points update to new selection. Performing a reload clears the old options from the screen. I've also had trouble getting the copy list button to work.

    minotaurs with shields and distracting totem. With parry and distracting they are hard to hit. And their base stats are good enough for murdering everything, they just need to survive.

  • Quote from ferny: “having now actually played my first (3) game(s) with dwarfs, having taken big core spear block and big deep watch block with throne king lightening bsb and rune smith/anvil, some xbows and 3 war machines... I've changed my mind entirely on deep watch. They are sturdy little feths that's for sure. Go deep, banner of shielding, goldstone and character support and they can absorb almost anything it seems. I had sylvan targeting them all game with shooting and I only lost them t6 …

  • Quote from Eisenberger: “If a unit of Skeletons led by a character crumbles entirely due to combat resolution but leaves the character, can the Skeletons be raised back during the following magic phase? ” cause there are no more rank and flank models, it's stops being a combined unit and becomes just a character. Hence the old unit can no longer be targeted.

  • 3 skewerers and 2 splaterers Is 600ish points And helps you against fast/flying moving units that you otherwise struggle to catch

  • Quote from Goatrek: “can assure you 90% of your concerns are flat out wrong based on extensive playtesting and streamlining the book to be like other books is not a design goal of the army. I find all 9th age armies rather lackluster for a reason ;P ” you still haven't resolved the master of everything. What are the strengths and weakness. It's not about streamlining so much as making it more interesting. We don't want an ultra marine 40k army that does everything better than every one else. Tha…

    Quote from Aenarion43: “THAT is the sort of thing that I am referring to. THAT sort of maneuver, while legal, is the sort of thing that slows down the game and incentivizes slow playing and leads to games not getting finished. ” not to beat a dead horse, but this example proves my point I believe. Such small movement is the difference between being charged or not, can turn the whole game. It has huge impact, whuch is why it takes forever to get right. To solve there needs to be some rule change …
