  • Quote from Boomvalk: “Looks like a spearman to me but good stuff @GSbasic have a look too at the threads by @Lord Drakon, he did his legionnaires and heroes in a Spartan theme ” yea, the problem is a halberd is rarely ever actually used in history, I’ve always thought them to look fairly obnoxious as well. The important thing is my ACTUAL spear men will look much different!

    Quote from CariadocThorne: “Quote from Giladis: “Quote from CariadocThorne: “Really, the guidelines for all three should have been worked out at the same time, so that we could see that nothing like that would happen. ” They have been. All three were done at the same time to avoid encroachment on each other's design space. ” Ok, so long as SE characters have their own strengths and don't just get shunted into shooting as the only thing which isn't a) already claimed by DE, or b) off limits due t…

    Quote from Giladis: “Quote from GSbasic: “It’s been the reason many brainstormed entries will not make it into the book. ” ” This is more accurate. Thanks.

    Quote from CariadocThorne: “ Quote from GSbasic: “from a static stat line output, he should be the most offensively capable character within the 3 elf books. The guidelines definitely point toward this. ” That's what I'm concerned about, that no-one has considered what this means for the other elven books (mostly SE in this case). Being good glass cannon damage dealers is really all SE characters have going for them so that's why I'm concerned. ” The design space of other factions have been high…

    Quote from CariadocThorne: “I'd just like to voice my concern here (as it is a feedback thread afterall). If the Manslayer is supposed to be the best offensive fighter among the three elven factions, I'm concerned about where this leaves SE characters. HE can be the best defensive fighters, so that makes sense, but SE can't be better armoured, have lower Discipline, can't have more synergy... When SE characters lost a point in Disciple, the trade-off was slightly better offensive output. If SE h…

    The Army wide rule is probably one of the things subject to the most tweaking.... it might just spoil with age... loo

  • Quote from jirga: “Maybe the disciplined legions is the most different factor from the real life rome. Late republic fits well the VS theme as power started to shift to capable generals from the Senate. What comes to dread elves I think using victrix republic era roman legionarie miniatures as a base might be fun idea to explore. DETAIL_IMAGE_7_300x.jpg I was thinking of replacing the head with one that has more elven looks. Replace it's shield with kite shield from the coming plastic normans an…

    Quote from DarkSky: “Quote from da_griech: “Quote from Giladis: “@everyone: the DE LAB has so far shown no intent to remove the option of a Wizard general or of a non Wizard on a Dragon. ” its written a little cryptical, I guess by purpose. But what you are saying is that there will actually NOT be an Option for a mage general in Dragon ” No, he wrote the opposite in fact. There is "no intent" to "remove" the options of a) Wizard general or b) Non-Wizard on Dragon. This means a) the team will (r…

    Quote from Giladis: “Since these are work in progress concepts the proper explanation is "potentially" and it depends how everything else develops. It is important to understand what you see is not a finished thing but a picture take at a specific stage in development to show the public the general direction where the Team's thoughts are headed. ” This is really really important guys! One of the reasons for showing in process entries is to gauge if the direction the design team is going is close…

    Quote from Cam: “Really like the model @GSbasic ” Thanks! Actually after getting this model I’ve started to completely redo my army with a Roman lean. @Marcos24 has been bribed into making a few other units for me. I’ll make sure to post them and take full credit

    I almost always played an Oracle general, it was sort of a thing DE could do that was always fun.

    Please remember that names/titles are still very much up in the air. As I understand it, the current names are references for what the design team would like the entry to represent. “Manslayer” meaning pretty good infantry blender and so forth. Don’t get to hung up on unit or special rules naming at this point in the process.

    Guys this last 9th age scroll has some de spoilers! Go check it out and give us some feedback!

  • @Peacemaker I’m not sure on the model size yet. Or it’s relies sets. Are you so sure that a 50x50 mount is necessary? Don’t we already have the 40x40 peg? Base sizing is one of the FEW legacy things that take ALOT of discussion to change. Imagine how upset people get when they have to debase?!

  • Ok I owe you all an update!! Sorry @KiRaHyuU for lagging so much on it. We’ve been told there will be a press release on it in the near future, obviously that will have plenty of information. As for spoilers, there really aren’t any yet as concepts are just being ironed out into first round mechanics. What I will say is this book is being built from the bottom up. The team has an incredibly unified vision of how they want the book to feel. This is so important. The killer of all progress is a te…

  • Quote from Radian: “Quote from GSbasic: “as I’m allowed. ” I mean again, why be so secretive. is it community project? it's ours or yours?stop being so secret. I like your good work, but some things that you (the teams) do (mostly this) i really don't like. remember, it's just my opinion ” It’s less about being secretive and more about having something real to present. The mechanics phase literally just started so right now all the team has is essentially the same thing that you guys have here, …

  • Hey guys, just wanted to pop in and say I’m seeing your posts! My posting has been low because this time of year I work several jobs until March. I’ve dedicated most of my forum time to following the LAB and I have to say things are looking great! The team is solid and they always come back to “what do we think the community wants”. It’s really encouraging! Also I see a lot of ideas pulled from here for discussion which is great. Keep it! I’ll drop any spoilers as soon as I’m allowed.
