  • i think they used to be, but it was taken away, hence the problem.

  • The other thing I like seeing in SE is connection to seasons, partially because you see a few seasonally based SE armies (Fall, Winter, Spring). Connection to the elements is ok I think if its done in a smart nuanced way, especially where they are combined in cool contextual ways - like a Storm Roc could be considered a spirit of air and water combined, not so crude and much more naturally nuanced than say a straight water elemental or whatever. Nymphs might work.

  • Quote from Peacemaker: “Quote from Falco: “Treefather ancient is wayyy worst than normal treefather, he should take deffensive skill 5, impaling roots 3 and strenght 6 with ap3, no matter if you reduce attacks to 2, the importance is to do stomps with Str 6. He is old but no stupid cmon, 460 points are enough Avatar of nature is on a god spot but it should be more Orion oriented or at least creat one new Heroe similar to shapesfither but with a bigger base and better stats (more points). ” I thi…

  • Quote from SmithF: “Well done Shannon, very impressive results! Now let me go back and find all of the posts of our fellow sylvan elf players in this forum claiming that "only Tree lists can work" or that "Bladedancers are crap" and so on. ” I think you'll find they're mostly before the most recent update, though some people may not have caught up There's quite a few variations that are pretty good now I think, played well so SE are in a pretty good place. You still need to play them skilfully, …

  • I'm not super across OK so I'm not sure why the discrepancy there. It has been noted however, and will be brought up again next time there is an opportunity for change.

  • I think it was a deliberate change at some point to make characters in general not light troops out of units. And though brought up several times, a hard case to make to make SE characters especially so when the project was attempting to lessen our avoidance in general, there were a limited number of changes we could make while every army was being updated at once, and there were bigger fish to fry. I hope it will get addressed when we get our new book, but for now it remains a petty annoyance i…

  • I think it can take a while for meta changes to set in. Sometimes people are a bit set in their ways, need to learn effective new strategies available over time, and sometimes they have new models to paint first The tree list is stable, competitive (scores well) and relatively easy to play, as people have said - so I think it will stick around. But I think there are great other ways to play competitively now too - hopefully we will see them emerge more over the next year.

  • If only there were big tree like models with giant bows available...

  • I dunno I can split threads. I can just lock or delete them (in the SE forums only). Here is an ok place to discuss current SE matchups though, and I don't mind it being specific. Players could learn something from that. You could just quote whatever you want to respond to here, or start a new thread quoting what you'd like to talk about.

  • Well, they're both imaginary

  • To be honest, this thread has kinda run it's course being on topic even - since it was started in an old version about perceived problems / unpopularity with SE in that version, but we have a shiney new improved balance SE update which you can discuss relevantly here: the-ninth-age.com/community/in…se-slim-army-book-2nd-ed/

  • The idea more or less came from the fluff, which as I understand it has forest spirits having a supernal connection, somewhat like daemons. Hence (as mentioned) why Divination is a requirement etc. To my mind it might make fluff sense for the smaller tree spirits like dryads to have a weaker connection to the mortal realm and therefore able to be sent back to their source when subject to violence, whereas the bigger spirits like Thickets, Treefathers etc have stronger connection to the world and…

  • I mean I think a Trees Auxiliary book (and even a SE Clan without Trees) would be a cool idea. But beyond that I think we have the smallest roster already, doesn't seem a lot of sense in taking things away.

  • I guess part of the question is how often that situation happens going forward.

  • Quote from nantuko: “Going to Norwegian masters next weekend and I will be playing the following list: 610 - Avatar of Nature, General 330 - Thicket sheperd, BSB, oaken crown 775 - Treefather Ancient, wizard master (Druidism), magical heirloom 439 - 25 dryads 456 - 26 dryads 239 - 6 heath riders, Heath Hunters 435 - Treefather 500 - 5 thicket beasts, C 615 - 6 thicket beasts, C 100 - Great Eagle after having seen the meta I already regret I didn’t go with my full elves list so I expect an epic f…

  • Quote from Falco: “Someone has seen Poland masters SE participation and lists ? I cannot open the drive ” @Laik?

  • Don't forget our racial trait comes with a free forest and tree singing. I agree something more distinctive could be better tho. Even just Distracting in the Forest for Forest Walkers would be fluffier and cooler I think.

  • The potential problem I see with adding strong rules explicit synergies between trees and elves is that it looks good to us as an idea because the idea is all upside for us on paper without being costed. However, those synergies will have downsides and costs too, likely in costing extra points. What this might mean is that the troops with the synergies are less effective for cost outside those particular situations the synergy applies to in general play. My experience of those type of synergies …

  • I mean you're not required to like him. I do though, and some players (like smithF - check out his battle reports) got pretty good use out of him even before the update, where eagles both as units and mounts dropped in points. We'll see how he goes in the data over the period to the next update, but I'd just make the point all things don't have to be liked by all players for them to be good.

  • Quote from Razon: “I'm not sure who the survey is directed to, the tournament scene or the casual gamer? ” It's directed at players of SE who would like to talk about how the army is currently. As I said the old thread people were using to just generally discuss SE wasn't so relevant anymore since it was started addressing the an older version, hence a lot of the info in that thread was out of date to a new reader. Quote from Razon: “So, just in case someone missed my very sarcastic point; why b…
