    Quote from toots: “dark elves 4 lyfe ”

  • Quote from Giladis: “@GSbasic do remember that halberd in T9A is not just a halberd. It is a name of the most recognisable polearm that we decided to apply to the entire category (excluding spears and those polearms we include into the nebulous category of 'great weapons') due to user familiarity. Therefore there are examples of non-spear polearms stretching back to the bronze age. As for using different type of a spear to represent a non spear weapon I think it would be fine. If you are using g…

  • Thanks, they are going to be very distinguished. My core will probably be more Roman reflected with the elite infantry being spartan/Athenian. I’m still deciding on some of the other groups like corsairs possibly being more Dacian or Gauls but that might look incoherent on the table.

  • Hey guys, I would like your feedback on something... I’m in the middle of rebuilding my DE with historical figures of Ancient Greece and probably will have to supplement with ancient Roman models as well to create diversification amongst the models. Historically spears were almost exclusively used, and halberds weren’t invented until much later, would it bother you if an opponent was playing a unit that was clearly very different than other unit but had a spear as a weapon even though technicall…

    Daeb in American English I would assume is pronounced day-eb. I still just call them dread elves personally. And I know a lot of players make their own “lore” to fit their army within the broader lore of the setting the game has (will?) set. I know the lore along with the LAB book should give this army a fully designed identity.

    Quote from Nemeroth: “DT(2) is too much, DT(1) is fine. However, taking into account two similar LAB designs the Infernal Bastion and Hellmaw, the mist drifter is the only one so far with any real risks to your own models. If a bastion is destroyed the unit and 20 models using it to fire from are unaffected.The hellmaw inflicts toxic hits but, funny old thing, they always fail to wound models with hellforged armour and supernal. In that context DT(2) means a third of the unit instantly dead whic…

    Quote from Radian: “no problem mate, I know I sometimes might use too strong, descriptive language I just think I don't like the direction the army is heading (that's why sometimes i call the army Roman Elves, not Dread Elves lol) and I don't know if/how/should do something about this. I love the wfb Dark Elves, Drows in D&D but Dread Elves in T9A not so much anymore. So I have a big and important question- why DREAD elves are called DREAD in T9A? What makes them so "dreadfully"? Are they at all…

    @Radian your comment is deleted, the explicit nature is not accepted on this forum. Your ideas are often controversial and I like your feedback for this reason but we can’t have explicit language used. Thanks!

    Quote from Radian: “so when we'll have a book? ANY +- date? we still even don't know what progress you did till start... @Lord Drakon some info from Roman Elves LAB Team? ” No incoming date yet, although it’s beginning some lab team playtesting to iron out a few ideas. We are only about 7 months into the lab (3 of which seemed to be on pause due to covid) so the team is working very quickly!

    Quote from jirga: “Once I get to do demons I'll be using the harry potter miniature game dementor as sentinel. pikkukuva.php ” Oh I really like this model. I’ve gotten about 60% of my models done and they are all “blind” eyeless models. I looked at the website for this and can’t seem to find any reference to base size, any guesses?

  • Yea so far the special rules have been very tasteful and simple. For some reason shortening shooting seems to be a priority, so I’m not sure small arms is ok unless also at short range.

  • The Task Team is aiming to make Xbows a useful support element to a Close Combat centric army. So far the designs are very interesting and I’m excited for them to get play tested to see what happens.

  • Quote from Peacemaker: “Idea for a magic item: Basically it's the revers of the HBE one: Once per magic phase, you can make your opponent re-roll 1 dispel dice. ” After playing against the UD re roll any 2 dice as much as you want item.... this item does not sound fun. Anything that can take effect more than once per phase (even once each phase feels pretty excessive) Just makes people feel bad.

    Quote from Wijkert: “I found this kick-starter today called Limbo: Eternal War. Maybe you guys discussed this one already and I missed it, but this game has some excellent mini's for DL, so feel like highlighting it either way. The pictures won't do it justice. For a better indication on how the models look, I recommend watching this vid. Around the 1:39:00 mark starts a showcase that can give you a better look at the models and also a better indication of there size. Some highlights: Scourge th…

  • Quote from Sidereo: “Lovely to see another one has succumbed to the ominous calling and followed their path beyond the veil into the Maelstorm. Welcome! I started playing DL with a lot of old(er) GW models from a dear friend, whose brother used to own and play the Daemons years ago. Over the course of time I have started to increase my number of own models, especially since I do not like most of the aesthetics of many GW daemons (or models in general). Agreeing with what TTinus said, try to find…

    Quote from DanT: “Quote from GSbasic: “The fact that WODG and DL are near the top of the tier list. Pretty basic assumption. It also makes sense as the project had broken down the game to a pretty basic level and is now building it back up with flavor and background. 1.3 books were pretty vanilla and pretty weak compared to say 8th Ed WF and that’s not even including the crazy end times stuff. Now we see the teams rebuilding that lost flavor back in the game but keeping it way more balanced. WOD…

    Quote from DanT: “Quote from GSbasic: “The last three new books have soon a pretty decent increase in power level. ” Can I ask what precisely you mean by this? When I was on RT we meant something very specific by this (broadly speaking, something like the tiers that were constructed for the last update), and by that definition I don't think this statement is true. (And even if it is true in some limited fashion, it would naturally be rectified in future points updates). Quote from Il Maestro: “M…

    Quote from Marcos24: “For the LAB team, has the RT addressed the potential of increase of RPS with what they’re asking for? Does the RT actually want RPS armies or is the LAB Team also expected to prevent that and already taking steps towards preventing it? ” This is a very complicated question.. let me take a swing at it. The first thing i would like to point out is that the Task Team is responsible for the design on the book. RT is sort of a checks and balances tool. They are very good at the …

    Quote from Radian: “Quote from GSbasic: “The guidelines have made a pretty tall order. Infantry MMU without an abundance of special deployment, ranged protection, counter shooting, or armor. This will be a difficult task but I’m confident the book will manifest itself in an enjoyable way. This team has been excellent in employing Main rule book rules to spice up units too. This should limit complexity by a large margin. ” no special deployement, no armor, no good shooting, no protectionSo what c…
