  • "Legacy Reasons" Although, really it's the Chosen Lord being allowed Favours who is the odd one out, since none of the other character options get them. It's a bit odd that Warrior Chariots don't get Favours though. I don't see any obvious abuses from letting more units get access to Favours. Not that we're going to change any of the rules since WotDG only recently got a legendary book.

  • Quote from Chronocide: “For the 3.0 game, what about the option to field units from other army books in a combined army? ” It'd require a complete re-think of how we do balancing (aka we're definitely not doing that ever). Since the points value of a unit in army A is based on how it fits, it's slot percentage and what else in the army can be used, offset against it's points value....so putting it in army B gives an inaccurate points value, and then likely messes up the values of the units in ar…

  • Slim rulebook page 18, Section 7.A Classification of Attacks Melee Attacks are split into two categories, Close Combat Attacks and Special Attacks. Unhinging Jaw applies to Close Combat Attacks. Acid Blood is a Special Attack. So the Unhinging Jaw doesn't apply to Acid Blood. Slim Rulebook page 114, Section 21.H Special Attacks As for why the attack attribute doesn't turn it into a close combat attack. Special Attacks normally don't apply the Attack Attributes of the model. But the model doesn't…

  • Bearer is just the model part. This doesn't override Massive Bulk. Bearers model is the entire model, all model parts. This overrides Massive Bulk. Bearers unit is the entire unit, including all model parts. It also overrides Massive Bulk. The distinction is there for balance reasons.

  • Cover Volley

    Yes. Cover Volley happens before the charged unit declares its charge reaction. After the Cover Volley, if the enemy unit is still able to charge, the charged unit declares its charge reaction as normal which includes stand and shoot if they're able to do that.

    Interesting vids, but you're a bit too quiet when you talk so I've got to ramp up the volume on my speakers to hear you properly and even then you're often a bit mumbly.

  • Quote from Altor von Drak: “Which document is that? ” Rules explained in Figures. the-ninth-age.com/community/fi…les-explained-in-figures/ It's in the downloads section under Gaming Material.

  • Quote from Chronocide: “Can we do bases+skirmishers in inches rather than mm? It's weird using two counting systems. ” So 20mm bases become 0.79" bases? That's really messy, that or everyone has to rebase their models, which they won't do. At least those with war machines won't. I do agree that having both mm and inches is a bit silly, especially when the two measurements don't even line up. It should be 12.7mm if it's really half an inch, not 12.5mm. Calling it half an inch would have been bett…

  • Quote from Marcos24: “@theunwantedbeing that’s what it is now, but the misunderstanding is caused, I think, at least for me, that the order of rolling and moving chargers changes when it involves a combo charge ” Yeah that's probably where most confusion comes from but I think some of it does likely come from players misreading, it's easy to get mentally tripped up with those sorts of rules which are just one big sentence. Quote from Marcos24: “Actually I loved the old D3+1 charge range, I’d gla…

  • Quote from echoCTRL: “I think it would be beneficial in the LAB to resolve the Virtue to represent the manner in which people play it. ” Possibly, although the rule could be tweaked slightly to make it less likely players will misread and then play it wrong. eg. Daring Charge Range rolls of the bearer’s unit are subject to Maximised Roll. ChargeRange rolls of friendly units against enemy units in base contact withthe bearer are subject to Maximised Roll.

  • Have you tried applying warmed plasticard (so it's more pliable) onto a curved surface like a bottle or tube or maybe even a large spoon to get the curve you want? You could use a bit of tape or something to secure it and then when it cools down it should (in theory) keep the curve.

  • Quote from Erudhalion: “Quick update: I've done a bit of a test run with a 10 thou sheet of plasticard, and it looks like I can get both the scalloped edge around the base and the curved tumblehome. ” How are you curving the plasticard?

  • Quote from WhammeWhamme: “In terms of what I'd do: 1) Make it about more than just end-game scoring. Make it something you do from turn 1 to the very end, and get some benefits from doing. e.g. (off the top of my head) "Control the Arcane Nexus: Score 1 token for each turn you have a spellcaster near it, spellcasters near it get benefits". "Hold the Line: [Breakthrough] + bonuses for engaging them near your deployment zone."... something like that. ” Isn't that just having more interesting terra…

  • Is that link the entire current Vermin Swarm background for T9A?

  • Quote from Grouchy Badger: “Quote from theunwantedbeing: “Close Enough If the charger is unable to reach the enemy unit or align but can get within 1" of the enemy unit then the charge is deemed successful, the unit is counted as making the charge and is considered to be fighting across the gap (and will close the gap as soon as it is possible to do so). ” Tested this out. It actually works quite well. ” Got any images or diagrams of the sorts of situations it worked for? (no rush of course, but…

  • Quote from Chronocide: “@theunwantedbeing Are you answering this in an official capacity, or is that your opinion on the subject? ” It's my opinion but I don't think I said anything you couldn't take as official. T9A is model agnostic but the setting is much the same sort of look and feel as Warhammer was before it got turned into Age of Sigmar so that's the general expectation of what an army is intended to look like when you create it with miniatures. You are still free to do whatever you want…

  • Quote from Chronocide: “If they don't enjoy it, that's one thing. I can't really control what others enjoy. But if the army is fully painted AND it looks good AND represents the models it's suppose to represent well enough to avoid confusion on a game mechanical level, should I really feel like I'm taking away from anything by bringing such a force? ” Looking good is subjective, and since that's on the other person and you can't control what they think, that's where the issues arises. Quote from…

  • Quote from DanT: “8th is different skills to oldhammer. 9th is skill intensive 8th. No version of oldhammer was as skill intensive as t9a. ” I'de describe it as being less luck affected rather than being more skill intensive. Quote from DarkSky: “You covered the first one. The second is more along the lines: There are games you can't play competitively, because the result is too random. In order for a game to be able to be played competitively it needs to have skill expression. That does not mea…

  • Quote from Sir_Sully: “Reforming from 1 wide, to 5 wide against a flank 7 wide ” If your flank is 7 wide and you fail to protect it, I'm not sure I can really complain if somebody conga-lines against you in a beneficial way. But lets assume this is a common situation rather than being dismissive of what others say: Quote from Sir_Sully: “Reforming from 1 wide, to 5 wide against a flank 7 wide gives the conga line 5 models who can attack in full (up from 1) and 5 models who can make supporting at…
