The latest issue of the 9th Scroll is here! You can read all about it in the news.

  • Pretty boring lists, but could be worse I suppose.

  • In a world of nerfed healing each bit of survivability becomes more valuable, so the Barrow HA seems quite atrractive.

  • Saurian Warriors and Skinks in core, obviously Or Feldrak cultists.

  • While the armybook itself may not change, supplements are always possible, and extra content is always being worked on in some capacity. Like, a book that has new rules for Dragons, or new magic options, is a change to WDG as well but doesn't directly affect the book. Similarly, there could be Supplements focusing on mono-god armies, potentially shared with the Daemon side of things, but there are no such plans at the time.

  • As long as the barrow halberds issue is fixed, it seems like 'tis the rise of Barrow Legions. All the main parts of that list got really notable disounts, perhaps not to the point that you'd want to go over Core minimum...But very close to it. Actually, scratch that. Provided Halberds go down to just replacing the Shield, I could see myself playing two blocks of those, a block of Lance cavalry down a flank, maybe even two, and some MMU NG with Catapult and Reaper support.

  • This happened in a nice position for me as well, since I've started to (extremely slowly) work on an army with the theme of "on the brink of damnation", Warriors edging into Fallen, Fallen and Forsworn edging into WO, Doomlord nearly turning into a FO and an Exalted Herald with the attitude of "I came here to laugh at you." Maybe I'll have it ready in time for the nerfs.

  • Oh no, my MSU spear skellies got 20p more expensive! Otherwise, I guess we really are heading for skeleton county, good thing I ordered 60 NG from Kanadian on halloween. Have to figure out if sword'n'board skellies are worth bringing along, though. 430p for 60 doesn't sound too terrible, nerfed healing or no.

  • Exile fluff lists took a discount to the tune of 205 points, not bad at all. (LotD, EH, 2xDamnation, 2xWO, 2xFO) I did say that the FO change back to 400 was a kneejerk reaction due to its sudden popularity, not because it's super great. And I guess RT finally tired of lowering the WO cost by a few points in every patch.

  • 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…
