  • @Il Maestro There are lots of issues with those rules breaking design guidelines and gamewide design guidelines etc. Ignoring that though. All of this: ": Advanced Unit Cohesion "Commitment to your mission, commitment to your unit, commitment to your brother." Trained to uphold the lives of their brothers above their own, the warriors of the Daeb will often find a surge of vitality when mortally wounded and take further incoming fire for their brethren, that their brothers might reach the enemy …

  • I was asked my opinion regarding someone's ideas for the OnG book. So everything you are arguing against is my own subjective opinion. I cannot claim that what I say is objective truth. I do tend to be staunch on the complexity budget for army book design. I sincerely hope that OnG are not in the first half of LAB books. While I can point to short comings with the book, it is overall in a really sweet spot. I guess the ADT members who worked on the last OnG updates before going Gold for second e…

    Manslayer is an internal Work In Progress name and is not at all settled on by Background Team which will do the naming. The purpose of the name is only to express the character focus during the conceptual and design phases.

  • Quote from Gingersmali: “Quote from echoCTRL: “Quote from Gingersmali: “I mean the competitive gamer in me loves more options, but as the proud owner of a cave, forest and common goblin army I would be gutted if these tribes got merged. I've had a lot of fun trying to improve my mono-race armies and loosing these options would make me sad. This all said, I;m in favor of any changes that just allow the same races rules to be expressed more succinctly. ” This right here cements for me the pickle t…

  • Quote from Pellegrim: “Quote from echoCTRL: “And seriously, cannot you guys just allow the book to be split. ” It can be split without splitting it right? Can't take goblins away from orc armies completely. Design two sub-streams in the book. Player has to Choose "Greenskins", "Warclan Goblins", of "Warclan Orc". With each there is e differente set of restrictions, mutally exlcusiveness etc. Choose "Warclan Goblins"? No Orc Warlords, no X, No Y. But you unlock the following upgrades/ items in go…

  • Goblins should be the absolute worst thing in the game. Hands down dog poop. Str 2, OS/DS 2, Res 2. Discipline 5. Conversely Human Peasants in KoE remain just as bad as they are now. OS/DS 2, Str 3, Res 3, Discipline 5, Move 4/8. And both Slaves and Rats at Arm's Str 2, Res 2, OS/DS 2, AG 4, Adv 5 Mar 10. The difference between a Slave Rat and a Rat Soldier is they gave one armour and a spear while the other gets a shovel. The human army is the one not designed to be useful as a main combat bloc…

  • If I get enough of those hammer and shield models they would make good peasant Crusaders.

  • The dark gods are beneath h Father Chaos. As far as the background to WDG is concerned Dopey is right. The good vs evil concept is very monotheist and with every religion belonging to a pantheon in this game the existence of good vs evil is hard to have from our perspective. We look at the game and see the motivations of all the races, while a peasant farmer looks at the world and sees the goals of Orcs as evil, thus his being aligned against those orcs means he is clearly good. From our perspec…

  • Quote from Wes456123: “I don't believe there is anything stopping you from simply giving the Castellan entry the Character and Not a Leader special rules. Not a Leader is already applied to War Platforms (as they are characters and could therefore be chosen as a general without the addition of Not a Leader), and character is obviously not exclusive to the Characters category in the Army Books - they simply share a name. Regarding piling multiple Castallens into a single Peasant Unit to create a …

    Correlation.

  • Alright, so I used War Platform on Castellan because it was just so much easier for me to do so from a rules perspective. I forgot about the last sentence of War Platform rule that only one model with War Platform can be joined to a unit. But, I am actually not unhappy with the balance this creates as it prevents stacking multiple in the same unit and balances Men-at-Arms with Peasant Crusaders. Mantlets with War Machines have all of the restrictions on them that I wanted them to have... The oth…

  • Quote from Sir_Joker: “I am unfortunately very hard pressed on free time at the moment ” Understood. Respect that.

  • Awesome!!, you showed up.

  • I think this Homebrew needs more view points from outsiders. @Sir_Joker would you like to help me out with this homebrew. I respect you are busy for time. So, only if it is fun for you to offer up some advice on balance, pricing, maybe what RT would not like. I know sometimes we disagree but that is precisely what I need help with at the moment. I need someone to disagree with a view point about how strong things already are. I fear being in an echo chamber at the moment LINK

  • Oath Bound: Universal Rule. Units consisting of half or more models with Oath Bound gain benefits determined by the army's chosen Prayer or Quest: - If the army chose Slay the Fearsome, the unit gains +2″ Advance Rate when rolling for Charge Range against enemy models with Towering Presence. In addition, model parts without Harnessed gain Battle Focus. - If the army chose Retrieve the Holy Relic, model parts without Harnessed gain Battle Focus. In addition, models in the unit gain Stubborn whene…

    Quote from Marcos24: “Quote from Serwyn: “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 k…

  • Quote from Klexe: “If you get stubborn you want to fight and have a big unit to hold. If you get the relic you do NOT want to fight and run away to get easy +1BC. Preferable on small min size units ” But, the unit is already Fearless. So, cannot always run away. I think they need to be Stubborn once they have it. But, might need something more anyway, to make fighting better. Maybe Pure of Heart.
