    Quote from Wesser: “Shouldnt that fight in extra ranks banner just be a VS special rule? To really encourage Big units that can muster tonnes of low-quality attacks ” Yeah that idea has been brought up several times over those 50 pages which is an indicator in and itself :). There also have been a lot ideas for a Discipline related rule. For example no general but every unit has Inspiring Presence. Or that the Discipline depends on the number of units in x". Another, similar, idea I just had: Re…

  • With 2 LABs being in the process and another one announced (which means it's technically also in the process), I'd like to take a moment to (re-)introduce everyone to the LAB-Process. We wish to inform you in which state which LAB is and every time they change a phase! Abbreviations: ACS = Army Community Support ADT = Army Design Team, BGT = Background Team, LAB = Legendary Army Book (i.e. "full", with Art and background). Legal = Legal Team, PT = Play Test Team RT = Rules Team, TT = Task Team (…

  • Quote from Kalerith: “If I get a breath weapon from thauma or dragonstaff on my hunter with trolleater, does there potential hits gain mw2 against medium infantery as well? ” Multiple Wounds is an Attack Attribute (21.G.b) Breath Attacks are Special Attacks (21.H.a.1) Attacksmade using Special Attacks cannot be affected by weapons or Attack Attributes, unless specifically stated otherwise. (21.H)

  • Quote from wokrze: “Not joke: the project built certain expectation by declaring that there will be 2 army books per year - everyone knows that that development stared previous year so we should be getting closer to release date (and moving forces towards next book) so we get curious and impatient. ” Reminder: We're not working on one book at a time. The release date of the ID book has no influence whatsoever on the release for DE, or VS. Quote from wokrze: “PS. Guys, we all understand that this…

  • Quote from wokrze: “On the offtopic of "hype management": GW, Wizards of the Coast etc regulary show some snipets monthly, biweekly or even every week (not always on te same system / faction but still) - be it new models, parts of models ("guess what's comming"), fluff, rules, news about new rules, campaings... ” T9A does the same, although not monthly, but bimonthly.

    This implies they stay with high R. I don't think its necessary a given. Remember: its a ground up rework, not an adjustment to the slim book.

    It works well with a second Flamethrower/Volcano Canon. Another trick, but more difficult to pull off: Make an enemy unit which is getting ready for a charge flammable to provide the bonus in melee in combination with Kadims/Flamming Banner.

  • Formations (and when to change them) are one of the more difficult part of the game. "Reform" is used often. For example to turn the unit by 90°, 180° or any other way where wheeling might not be enough. For example if the enemy outmaneuvered you and is setting up a flank charge! Or to still be able to shoot at the enemy. Regarding "formations people usually use"..puh that depends a lot. Commonly for 20+ models of Infantry you want to set them up at least 5 wide to benefit from the boni (for com…

    21.H "Special Attacks" Attacks made using Special Attacks cannot be affected by weapons or Attack Attributes, unless specifically stated otherwise. Flaming Attacks is an Attack Attribute. And Grind Attacks are Special Attacks.

    Quote from Twisted Magpie: “Quote from arwaker: “What about RatAtArms being able to host VerminHulks inside, just like those skinks can do with Caimans? That might help us to improve close combat abilities. ” I've been asking about this for ages! It's how if always seem them, it would look amazing on the battlefield too. I also think all Vermin units should have feigned flight, it's a very ratty thing to do ” Note: the following is my uninformed pondering without knowing how the guidelines will …

    An update: I'm sorry I couldn't keep my self imposed time table, but with taking up a new position in this project my T9A-time has been filled out completly. Well between that and learning UB so I can play even more! I still want to continue this little project of mine, at least finish the next update incorporating all your feedback, thank you again @everyone. It might just take a little while longer then I originally hoped.

    Quote from Twisted Magpie: “I ask why not? ” Because more armies makes balance even more difficult then it is. For the sake of argument: Let's say VS were to be splitted up in 2 books (it's not). What would that mean? Split entries nearly in half? But what about the people who want to field Vermin Hulk and Gutter Blades in the same army? Those are now going to be disappointed. You would split collections in half ! Now with splitted units the books are lacking options? Easily solved: Create new u…

  • Quote from Skarab86: “but since the rules and the armies do not advance regularly people get bored. ” Once per year an update isn't regularly for you? Remind me, how often did the other famous game update their armybooks? Let's ask in the KoE Forum or UD Forum, they will sure know. And if we can get to the goal of 4 books per year.. heck even 3 would be more then what GW has been doing, no? (This is a real question, I actually don't quite know how many books they published per year). + what Cali…

    Quote from JimMorr: “Quote from WhammeWhamme: “Right, there's so much wrong here it's hard to figure out where to start. Wrong is a member of a team from other faction coming to VS brainstorming and telling we cannot have some idea because in his UNRELEASED book the idea is already used. WhammeWhamme isn't "just" a member of the ID team. He is, and speaking, as a member of the background team. But this is also not quite what they said. He even said "all 3" are possible, and even for multiple boo…

    One idea could be that a standard bearer increases the range of how far the support unit can be from the parent unit for the orders (and possibly also the other boni). So instead of making it cheap, encouraging to buy it despite still be 20 points for a small unit.

  • Quote from Laksen: “so you get 1 str4 hit extra? and not 1, 4x4 str4 hit? ” Yes. Quote from Lohkir: “21.A.a17 Magic Resistance (X) Learned Spells and Bound Spells targeting at least one enemy unit with one or mor models with Magic Resistance suffer a -X to their casting roll. How it works with Bond Spells? Target has Magic Resistance 3, so 4/8 becomes 1/5? ” Correct. Note that it could also become 0/4 for example but you would still need to use at least one dice to dispel.

  • Quote from Laser: “Is it possible to generate an addional hit with an Artillery Weapon (Catapult) when the shot benefits from battle focus? For example by using Bewitching Glare from witchcraft. ” Yes it is. But the high Strength/AP is still only used for 1 hit. So a Catapult with 4x4, S[7]4, AP [4],1 which hits while benefitting from Bewitching Glare would cause 1 S7 AP4 hit and up to 16 S4 AP1 hits. Also note: Battle Focus specifically needs to say that it works for ranged attacks like the spe…

  • Thank you for your critique, I'd like to adress a couple of points, though only shortly for the time being, as I'm under some time constraints yet want to answer you. Quote from Pigtails: “You guys really don't get how spoilers work. That much is evident. ” That might be a bit harsh. PR is one area the project did lack manpower but the project is aware of it and is trying to do more. @Tyranno for example does a phenomenal job writing articles for the 9th scroll and including his own models.

    Mhh, at some points I think I didn't get my point quite across, I think I spent to little time on the actual answer, for which I'm sorry as your effort definitly does deserve more. And mind you: I'm not a designer and my first attempt at it you can see in this forum..it's far from good, but I'll keep working on it :). Quote from DanT: “ Quote from Shako: “(AvB now? I didn't realise/know; congrats ) For a whole 2 days now! Thanks :) Also, I hope I don't sound to negative. When giving feedback I t…
