  • Quote from WhammeWhamme: “First, WRT "really close" - 16% is a notable gap; it's about the difference between succeeding on a 3+ and succeeding on a 2+. (.833 - .667 =.167) ” I haven't check your calculations, but this is wrong. going from 3+ to 2+ is actually a 25% increase ( (5/6) / (4/6) = 5/4 = 125%). +16% is equivalent to "for each HIT roll a dice. On a 6 you get two hits instead", i.e. you do 116% of the initial damages.

  • My idea is to give swift reforms to dryads anciant (instead of via aspects). Would give a bit more incentive to take one for something else than a redirector.

    Quote from Giladis: “@Minidudul Designers are not allowed to take inspiration from existing miniatures since that is Legaly unsafe therefore we cannot do what you ask. ” However if I remember well, designers are required to create entries such that there are at least three fitting minis from different compagnies available. Thus the question can be rephrased as showing three models that would fit the concept.

    Here is an updated version with a couple of new units! I've tried to stay very reasonnable in the complexity or crazyness, but I would really like to play these (the Storm Roc and the Forest swarm), and to find, build and paint models too. Tell me what you think about it! Sylvan Elves Homebrew

    Quote from Marcos24: “@Giladis couldn’t the crippled or old slaves that aren’t as useful or any that are sentenced to death be used as meat shields? Even up to 5, as a 0-1 upgrade per army, even for a specific unit, could still fit into situation. I can’t imagine any slave be completely useful to the very last days of their lives. So I’m sure they’d just be outright Killed the second DE realize they can’t get more out of them. So instead, if there is a know raid or battle planned, toss them asid…

    I'm not sure about that, It still gives you the opportunity to ambush from anywhere on the battlefield, and after that you're left with a monster. Not a very strong monster, but still stomping and with 4 riders. Also I'm sure it opens a lot of shenanigans. Like charging a unit with weak damage output with it and then ambushing out to get a flank charge then ext turn. Or ambushing out of it in front of warmachines or archery and using the leviathan to block the enemy unit that was supposed to pro…

    The issue being called "9th Scroll Issue 22 July 2020" makes it look a lot like it's the issue of the 22nd day of July. Also the cover image is really nice!

    I think the unit is cool and original! It probably needs good planning, but it has potentialto do degenerate stuff. I think the rule is not precise enough though. What happened if the unit is not big enough to touch all the units that were in combat with the leviathan for example?

  • @Little Joe I don't have much time right now, but please feel free to ping me arround mid jully (if you haven't got enough help at that time), I would be glad to give you a hand

  • Quote from Shako: “Quote from Serwyn: “A quite simple rule would be "When distributing ranged hits, half must be distributed towards the model", which in game isn't really more complicated to apply than an additional -1 to hit. ” Not quite true.-1 to hit is a basic game rule (soft cover). "half hits must be distributed towards the model" does not exists in the generic game rules and no other model has something similar (not to say that could not happen in future LABS). -> It IS more complicated,…

  • Quote from Shako: “I also accept that I don't really do any damage to the house (apart from a window perhaps). So the bastion should ignore all hits from bows and similar? Or maybe it could be reflected by the rules that I am at a certain spot (a window) I could actually deal a little bit of damage. Of course hitting just a single window is harder then hitting the whole damn thing. Your example actually can support Soft Cover as well it can go against it. ” To be fair, the exact same reasonning …

    Quote from Kdownunder: “I wouldn't remove poison from sentinels since you lose all the tools to fight those high resilience monsters in case you would want to play full elf lists. Plus side you have some nice ideas. ” +1 to wound also helps against monsters, and the problem with poison is it's as effective when you're hitting on 2+ and on 6+, so it doens't fit "high skill archers" very well. Poison is indeed stronger than +1 to wound in most cases, but note that now the Darkwood Predator and the…

  • Guys, I'm sure RT will be able to balance well the book with all the data and everything. Noone could expect the balance to be right on the first try, giving points to completely new entries is very hard. Arguing about overall external balance is really not productive, especially when it is data-driven. If it's not strong enough it will be buffed, if it's too strong it will be nerfed. Just give it a bit of time. "Balance" is really the level 0 of game design discussions so please don't waste you…

    Quote from Alexwellace: “The only kindred that really deserve it’s own spot is the shapeshifter. I like yours. I also really really like your deep wood predator. I think that the design would be cleaner if you combine the two concepts into a single model. Yeah... but then that is basically just a mount, whi I wanted to avoid. Also note that I called it Darkwood Predator, because Deepwood was a name used in WHFB fluff. Other things I like: I think you’ve done a better job than I did on be specia…

    Hi everyone! Following advice I've read somewhere that trying to write a "redesigned" book was really informative, and following all the discussion on the SE LAB brainstorm thread, I launched myself into my own update of the book! This is not a full redesign like a LAB can be because this would be a lot of work to do alone. Moreover I think that a few units works well enough that I wasn't convinced my changes would improve them. Also some inspirations or idea may comes from the excellent homebre…

  • Quote from WhammeWhamme: “Or three Dwarves normally take three hits, but if one of them stands on the other two's shoulders, they only take one hit. ” Maybe the one on top is further away from the heat? Joke asside, I don't think it usefull to reasonate like that. The profile of a chariot or a mounted char is a combination, an abstract representation of the model's characteristic. A hit is an abstract thing, it's not exactly a single blow. What does it mean that a dwarven King on two other's sho…

  • I personaly find the book quite fun and interesting. The units are impressives and cover the fluff well. When reading the book, I had the feeling of red hot, infernal, constructs and dangerous evil-looking dwarves. Playing it must be great. It has clear, powerfull play paterns and (it seems to me) also good ways to cover its weaknesses. The play paterns aren't too simple or boring though, with a kind of "decently mobile" bastion feel, so that's cool. I feel that march and shoot don't combine wel…

  • If you like pride, sloth,anger and chaos, you probably have no problem with darkness either, so it's reasonnable that Warriors call their gods dark imho.

  • Dear Sage, Some old stone tablets say that some Avrasi emperor convert to a monoteist religion. They also assert that, with time passing, the celebration consacred to Sol Invicta become the birthday of a prophet of that religion. Please dear Sage, tell me, do these tablets speak the truth?
