  • I have completed A1-9, B1-28 and C1-2 for all EoS lists present and uploaded them to designated link. The only exception is that I could not find lists for B22 Crippling Rides. There may not be any EoS lists there, but I can't verify. I found the lists for every other tournament.

  • Quote from The Changing Constant: “The stank is not tall. So you can not hide behind it. ” Steam tank is tall. It has towering presence which includes tall as a nested rule. So things can hide behind it just fine. Quote from Marcus el Piadoso: “This is my list, Each unit has a name. All very fluffy. Before my Prince had the Talisman of Shielding, but I got bored of quicksilver lash and other damage spells. Now he is dying from bolt throwers. If my valiant prince hides my opponent just targets my…

  • Quote from The Changing Constant: “I don’t see why everyone is hating on gryphon generals... I use them with a fair bit of success, they just work differently than many other cowboys. He sits behind my light infantry and makes long bomb charges. If he makes the charge, probably still in the leadership bubble, but if he doesn’t, then he fails to go past the light infantry and is not in harms way while still being in position for his bubble. ” Are people hating on them in your experience? Why? I e…

  • Quote from Scorbol: “@Nerocrossius KotSg are not tall, so you can't hide your Great Griffon behind unfortunately. ” Tall is a nested rule under the Cavalry category (page 87 of the main rulebook) which KotSG are of that category--I promise I hide many things behind my KotSG. Quote from Scorbol: “Marhal, Great Griffon, Heroes heart, Paired Weapons, Shield, Basalt infusion, Witchfire Guard or Marhal, Great Griffon, Heroes heart, Paired Weapons, Shield, Alchemist alloy, Winter cloak What do you guy…

  • Quote from Chronocide: “Some good points. Though I think Gigantic models can see over Large intervening models. ” Marshal on great griffon is a large model with tall. KotSG and wagons are also Large models with tall. Unless you mean that Gigantic models could see over the screen to the imperial prince on griffon then you are correct there. However, aside from a couple of exceptions (looking at you SA!), there are few gigantic models with substantial ranged attacks to threaten the prince. Quote f…

  • Personally, if I were to try an imperial prince on great griffon I’d go full-on wild and take a prelate on battle altar too. Keep the prince hiding behind the battle altar and have the prince support the nearby infantry block benefiting from the hatred bubble with an order every turn. When the time is right have the prince fly out and strike something with the Sonnstahl+hatred. The only advantage a prince on griffon has over a dragon is that it can hide behind large category models, if you’re no…

  • Quote from Enrique: “Is there a rule that says Health Points cannot be negative? Combining Fanatical and Rage, it is a relevant question. Can we have like a twenty attacks Giant? ” Page 17 of the main rulebook states character stats can't be reduced to less than 0. The exceptions being Agility and Attack value which can only be reduced to 1. As such, the imperial giant will never have more than 13 attacks with big brother and big fan of sunna.

  • Imperial Princes don't normally go on great griffons Marshals on griffon tend to be excellent options when they're not key leadership models as that makes them less attractive targets. Imperial Prince forces the model to be the general and have less defensive options... so it's just not ideal. The common marshal great griffon combos involve ghostly guard+witchfire guard/dusk forged+dragon-gem, Winter cloak to protect both against magic and ranged attacks or Death Cheater+Shield of Volund/witchfi…

  • Quote from Eleanor: “Is the empire seen at the gaming tables, or is it one of the least used? ” Short answer: Empire has decent representation at recent tournaments. As for its tier performance in tournaments I would say that it's in the middle of the pack. EoS isn't an easy army to win with, but that's not to say it's weak. It has some difficult matchups with the top tier armies and that can complicate things and it often requires a lot of models on the table which can make it difficult to keep…

  • Another question for clarification, for an entry such as the Marshal: If there are three marshals in the list and one is a BSB, do I indicate that as 3x Base Cost Marshals and a 1x BSB OR is it 2x Base Cost Marshals and 1x BSB?

  • Quote from Just_Flo: “I checked with the army book and the macros of the analysis files. Pistols are treated as the custom choice. So as long as no light lances are chosen it is assumed they use pistols. ” I think I understand. If I where to enter 5 reiters with just pistols into the file it would look like so? (Hidden Content) I just want to ensure that I understand it correctly.

  • Quote from Shako: “Can't believe I forgot to upload this.. it was on my laptop for 4 months :(. Doesn't matter where you begin, we need it all done before RT needs the data for the next update (no, there's no info about that one). ” Awesome! Thank you! That’s how I imagined the data population worked, but wanted to be sure. And what should I do for Reiter pistol entries? Technically lance/shield is a safe way to enter it as it’s the same cost and I highly doubt anyone took any. But if we could g…

  • I do not know how much of this has been done, but I'll gladly take care of the rest. There is an error however on the EoS masterfile as there is no option for base price/regular pistol reiters. Could you post a corrected masterfile and I'll start uploading all of these. Quote from Shako: “Some hopefully more vivid example: Armylist number 1 features 2x25 Heavy Infantrys aswell as 1x15 Electoral Cavalry with Great Weapon and a 1x10 Electoral Cavalry with Lances, the result would look like this: *…

  • Quote from berti: “We tested the game against ID and infantry is totally lost. ” I'd be interested in seeing your armylist it sounds spicy! Either way, I'd recommend that anyone that's had a negative experience with the ID matchup post their feedback in the new threads for Eos vs ID Price Feedback and EoS vs ID Desgin Feedback both of those threads are your best chance to getting changes made to the ID book from the EoS community. Quote from berti: “Too many spells you have to dispell that mass …

  • Some EoS perspective solutions I've found effective: Knight Commander Cowboy on Young Griffon with Basalt infusion + Dusk Forged + Hero's Heart/Titanic Pick. High damage output and is hard to get rid of. Dispel Silver spike when against alchemy. Winter Cloak EoS cowboys are decent too, great griffons aren't as ideal as expected because of all the clipped wings in ID artillery. EoS small core knights units can move in front of infantry blocks to screen some of the strong anti-infantry shooting. N…

  • Greetings Marshals! We had some initial discussion on the new ID Beta book a few weeks ago: What do you think about new ID book (from Eos perspective) ? In this thread we want to gather your thoughts on the designs in the new ID book. Please remember that the book is just a Beta and isn't a finished product and the project is attempting to gather as much focused feedback as possible Please provide feedback with the following structure: What design entries feel too strong: What design entries fee…

  • Quote from Mirdhynn: “I have real doubts about the lance and shield option.This is something I never seen and to be honnest, I would probably never use it ” I have tried it a few times and it's satisfactory chaff. The issue is that it's not as points efficient as just pistols and it doesn't kill chaff as well as the brace of pistols. Thus, in my mind if it was the base cheapest version of reiters it would see more use. Also if characters could meaningfully join reiters the lance/shield option wo…

  • Quote from DanT: “Marshals! Talk to me about reiters. In your imaginations/visions of the army, how do these guys fit in? What do they do? What is interesting about them? What battlefield roles do you want from them? P.s. ACSes: do you know if there is any public knowledge in terms of t9a background for reiters? Even very basic stuff? ( @Nerocrossius @Adaephon_Delat @greentide ) ” From the background materials that I've been able to read I do not see much information on reiters aside from their …
