    You could also cast it on the target you want to shoot with your several small units. It's very versatile and thus quite interesting

  • I just looked through the guidelines quickly for now and I'll have a closer look later. But I wanted to thank all the team for their work on the VS book, it all seems very interesting and I think that these adjustments corrected the most glaring issues with the previous guidelines while also clarifying important points. Keep it up On a side note... Shouldn't this thread be pinned ?

  • Quote from Ghiznuk: “Le nom est un peu nul aussi, du coup. Ils auraient pu trouver un truc un peu historique, du genre « Gouge » ou que sais-je. ” Là il y a peut-être une raison background derrière ? Qqch lié à leur origine ou mode de fabrication qui serait de nature "infernale" ? J'ai hâte de lire le livre complet

  • Quote from Ghiznuk: “Actually, I'm thinking about making a podcast summarizing the fluff we have for the different factions, in French. But I honestly don't know when I'll have time for that, lol ” Do you mean one person reading a condensed version of the info we have ? Or discussions between several people ? What would you need for that ? Writting summaries ? Other people reading maybe ? I'm not sure what is your plan nor wether I would be able to help but I most definitly would be interested. …

    Quote from spicybarbecue: “Empire of something or other ...I mean this entire army feels like it is way too historically advanced to exist in a fantasy wargame ” Don't tell him about the ID train . Nor about all our darkstone technologies Seriously, fantasy doesn't set in stone any historical timeline. And different T9A factions draw inspirations from different historical period with cultures/technologies that didn't coexisted in the real world. To me that's one of the best part of this "fantasy…

    The mino chief seems on the high side of power level with Hp4 Res5 but we could test it. I don't know about his rules regarding joining units though Quote from piteglio: “- immortals: even by dropping Whispers of the mask, we could have a very different infantry from the Premade ones by buying them an Infernal weapon. they should probably come as (0-2) and in two options, 5x3 and 7x3. - kadim incarnates: probably (0-1), as 3x1 or 2x2, ignoring Magma tunnelling ” Right now it doesn't seem like ID…

    I like the look of this rule page BH : The premade list has Wildhorns, Minotaurs and Centaurs. That's only one core unit so we'll need to find at least one more. core units : - Mongrel Herd : their rules are simple, we could give them spears to be useful in numbers - Mongrel Raiders : nice alternative to the herd. The issue here is that more of their rules are not QS compatible. Also the list already include 2 units with throwing weapon. Even though it's short range shooting I feel that it's mor…

  • Quote from Eldan: “But then, people would only take the risk when they think that none of the misfires are really bad right now. PixelClear.gif ” Not if the reward for taking risk is big enough. For example : - adding range : if the enemy is far you chose between big risk or not shooting - big damage increase : if you need it to eliminate a dangerous target you might be willing to take the risk All of that is very speculative and that's what testing and iteration is for. Finding the sweetspot be…

  • The advantage of misfires beneficial chosen by the opponent is that they can be balanced assuming that it'll be ALWAYS THE WORST (also quite comical I feel). This way it allows for prices reductions or power increases elsewhere. I would still prefer giving the choice to the VS player for when to take the risk (like the current cannon or dreadmill). This way you chose when you're willing to risk really bad repercussions. And if you do so you can be sure that if it backfires it'll backfire in the …

    Alright, it's good to be close to the end of the list I'll have a closer look at your lists and write the BH one tomorrow. Also I haven't checked if the ones voted by the DH community are possible in QS rules

    UD : I didn't find any previous community consultation here so I'm going to do as I did for the other army by analyzing the units and there possible place in QS form. The premade list has : Skeleton Archers, Necropolis Guards and Shabtis The UD army is split in 2 dominant parts : mostly skeletons and some statues + Vultures and Scarab Swarms I feel like it makes sense to have a split of 4 skeletons / 2 statues. Maybe one less skeleton for Vulture/Scarab if deemed adequate. First of all like @pit…

    Quote from piteglio: “ID premade: of course a single playtesting game isnt enough to draw conclusions, but the new ID premade army seemed quite balanced to me. rather than because of the lists or because of luck, i had the impression that the game was won (or lost) because of clever (or silly) decisions. i'd be very curious to read your opinions too. ” I have just started watching your video. I'll finish it first before commenting. On the subject of RaA : ok, let's give them the spears For the V…

    Quote from piteglio: “- RAA: we should definitely add FieR in the Advanced mode for extra specificity ” Probably not if we give paired weapons to footpads because in both case it more or less ends up with one more attack per file Quote from piteglio: “- guard: i'm not a huge fan of "shield vs shooting", i'd rather balance them via points ” My concern here wasn't about balance but about avoiding RaA and VG stats being too close together. So there is a clear differentiation between them other than…

    Vermin Hulks (0-2) 40x40mm, 2x2 3x2 4x2 global: 6 12 6 defensive: 3 2 5 1 offensive: 3 3 5 2 4 rules : Safety in Numbers, Fearless, Stomp (1), Monstrous Support, Light Troops (in the QS it does the same as swift reform, right ?) The lack of Battle Focus leaves them quite bland but I guess that being Monstrous Infantry is special enough in this army Jezails (0-2) 25x50, 3x1 3x2 global: 5 10 5 defensive: 2 3 3 0 offensive: 2 3 3 0 4 rules : Safety in Numbers (for the Pavise we could add it like th…

    Yeah keeping VG for numbers make sense... Let's try to write profiles : Rats-at-Arms : I'm wondering if the spear option might make sense here. It would help detaching them from the Footpads (in terms of offensive capability. Though it would bring them closer in defense but it's minor...). Don't know here. Else I would keep them as in premade 5x5 5x6 5x7 (again, the same issue all the time with units with no offensive power, it's mostly just a tarpit) Vermin Guard : no change to make here 5x4 6x…

I'll watch it later, thank you for posting (I follow your channel on YT anyway ^^) Quote from piteglio: “i am not sure how to deal with Unstable (outside of Undead/Daemonic) ” What do you mean ? It's part of the core QS rules so it's a possibility Quote from piteglio: “i'd rather go for RatsAA / Footpads / Hulks in Premade ” I…

    On to VS now We'll start from Clanrats, Vermin Guars and Footpads. Not sure if the footpads were the best choice here. It's 3 core units with really close statlines. Plus Footpads aren't the best right now in term of model availability. But I assume it's too late to change now (plus it's just my opinion, I would be curious to know what were to reason behind this choice). Moving on... Considering we already have 3 of the infantry ratmen units I consider that Slaves and Plague Brotherhood are imme…

    I was referencing current lists. I agree with the 2 lines approach. No need to diverge from the FB:T9A layout. I'm pretty sure that we could use the work done by @Eru as a basis to avoid redoing the work and to get a unified look

    A campaign being built using the QS armies... ??? Hum... Interesting... Back to the rules design : What was used to make the army lists files ? I feel like I should organize the VC and OK design proposal so we don't loose them in this thread and the best way would be to use the design template of the other armies I think. Who did the layout for the army list 1.1 draft ?
