  • Quote from Clangeddin Silverbeard: “The chance for an exalted herald to cast wrath of god with three dice is 37,5% without thauma re-rolls, so maybe just under 50%. That's not fairly reliably in my book. ” Well you have to include thauma re rolls, and with that it does go off quite reliably. And anyway you've totally ignored my whole point. The enemy cant risk you getting it off, and so must save dice for it. Which means it doesn't matter if you actually cast it, as your last spell they can thro…

  • Yeah it fairly reliably goes off on 3 dice. So you can just save your last 3 dice for it, and make your opponent save his dice for it. IF they are a corner camp army then they are super afraid, so will let you cast everything, and wait to ensure wrath doesn't get cast. By casting it last failing to cast doesn't even matter, cause it makes the enemy waste their dispel dice

    Quote from Chronocide: “Okay, so Houserule solution for this single model unit thing: Modify "March to the Beat" to: Quote from BRB: “21.C.b.1 March to the Beat A unit within 8″ of one or more enemy units that contain a model with March to the Beat suffers −1 Discipline when taking March Tests. Units with at least one model with March to the Beat ignore this modifier. Enemy units cannot Wheel more than once per phase if their any of their movement for that phase places them within 8" any friendl…

  • Quote from AlWeeks: “Honeslty I really like this. Although I think that there is nothing wrong with armour 5, HP1 and Res 4 either. It depends on what the rules team would feel is 'right'. ” My logic was that a horse is easy to armour plate, where as a raptor, is probably hard to defend and they have inherent armour. And being a small monster they are probably as easy to harm as a regular horse, but being a predator I expected them to be more resilient to pain, eg 1 wound wont stop them.

    Quote from Vamp87: “Right. Having 4-5 maxed units of ghouls wouldn't change my lists in any serious way. ” 4 maxed units would still put you over core points. And you are allowed to take 2 maxed units now if you really want to fill in your core. yet no one does. I like ghouls and they have their uses but they are fairly dependant on character support. So having more units wont make the extra units any better. You will still only have one ghoul lord character, you still have to be within 12" to m…

    I recon all non light troop core could have their price halved rounding down. Extra models halved, weapon option halved, command cost halved. That would be my stating point. I'm not even convinced that twice as much core on the table would even change lists in any serious way.

  • Its tough to balance everyone all at the same time. As you say if vc are at the top end they get some nerfs, but the armies like he at the bottom end receive buffs, makes it very difficult to predict power levels when both happen at once. But they way I see it vc had underlying issues that were masked by army popularity and getting good results. Every army takes turns being in the spot light and being in the dregs. Hopefully with vc in the dregs more attention will go into their internal balance…

    Quote from ilovepeanut: “So why not a rule specific to heavy blocks? Representing how warriors fighting in formation protect eatch other. Like some kind of parry but for to-wound role and armour saves. Units composed of R&F model without light troop can only be wounded on +3 at best. Units composed of R&F units without light troops can never have their AS reduced to less than 4+ with plate armour 5+ with heavy armour 6+ with light armour when fighting in close combat. This represents how…

    Quote from panterq: “Dude, such posts make me sad. You're showing it as a hopeless fight, which is very far from true. Like I've said before, units don't fight in a vacuum, it's the armies that are fighting. If you have a problem to deal with FDEs and Chimeras while playing HBE - you are doing something wrong, or you get really unlucky. ” Perhaps I didn't articulate my point well. Of course if the enemy is taking monsters there are counter play options. My issue is say you enjoy playing monster …

    Quote from panterq: “So now we venture into a land of models like Medusas, Kin-Eaters, Chimeras, single Razortusks. If you ask me, these models are good, but do not feel broken. ” Take chimeras for example. I agree 1 or 2 by themselves are not an issue, but when paired with more powerful single models eg a feldrake elder, even if you face the front of the feldrake, the chimera in the rear is often more than equivalent points in RnF can handle, and then your pinned for combos later. Even if they …

    Quote from panterq: “If it's still about single models, I'm interested to hear if we can establish a baseline for a single model being OP, so far I have the following: - Move at least 8"/16" - Swiftstride - Toughness 6 and above - Gigantic Size (for the Monstrous Rank and D6 stomps) - Preferable base 50x100 Let me know if this hits the spot, or are there any other criteria I should be looking for. ” I think this has missed the mark. For me its the ability to move laterally more than 10" and face…

    Quote from Wesser: “Generally I would love it if more models were charged extra for the 2nd pick to punish spam Far too many choices including in VC is taken in doubles or not at all ” Yeah I think this might even be the easiest fix to prevent armies feel like solo monsters. What if all monsters were 0-1. Like the steam tank is good, but no one complains as they can only take 1 and it can't be everywhere. Dragon is good, but only can take 1 If you want a warriors monster mash you still can, but …

    Quote from Altao: “Anyway I remember similar discussion - it was about deathstars. I really feel that any solution will reveal another problem like too strong magic, shooting, chaff or again deathstars. ” But thats ok, for a few reasons: It changes the meta, which keeps the game feeling fresh and interesting. and its an iterative approach, so with each step we get closer to more people being able to play more styles competitively, further improving the depth and fun of the game.
