  • Quote from Eastern Gate: “I recently heard about the Warhammer armies project and decided to check out the wood elves 9th edition book for funsies. I just glanced over it but to me it seemed like they kept all the entries from 8th while also adding all the new units from age of sigmar but with warhammer rules. At first it was cool to see new units but it got old very quickly. My initial opinion of the book is that it feels very bloated with too many choices that doesn't have a clear role and a c…

  • Quote from CariadocThorne: “@Jarec That could be a good idea. You mentioned rocks, what about standing stones? They could be bought as a normal unit, with no movement or attacks, scout, R10 and a lot of HP, and they could choose one upgrade from a list of stuff like +1MR to friendly units within X", or friendly wizards can measure range and LoS for spells from the stone, or something like that. ” Actually that would be a really cool and unique mechanic, and with very little complexity because mo…

  • Quote from Falco: “Quote from Serwyn: “Useless naked BSB is not a thing. If anything it is the opposite. Both the Hail Shot and the Hunter's Honour on it are great and you can't take both. ” Well I’m forced to play my BsB naked on sentinels because is where I need it. Hail shot is 9 impacts of ST4, not the best for again 70 points.BsB with hunters honour on dancers, rangers or lancers is good BUT he is linked totally to that unit and normally goes on center. So if I take it I lose my BsB on sent…

  • Useless naked BSB is not a thing. If anything it is the opposite. Both the Hail Shot and the Hunter's Honour on it are great and you can't take both.

  • A different, small spells systems using veil tokens or something would be really interesting, however I fear that it would implies a mostly complete change of the magic phase of SE. This would probably mean a lot of complexity unique to the book, and I'm not sure it is worth it for a book that has only a medium focus on magic.

  • Personally I've never played Treefather Ancient, so the number of paths is essentialy 3.5. However, Maidens are fairly interesting in my opinion. For 100 points, you have a mobile Adept with some good spells. It would just need to be able to take a single artifact and it would be perfect! In the Lab I would like to see some more options for druids, even if it meant removing trees as spellcasters (or only apprentice with the hereditary spell). Some wild, fighty shaman, a healing specialized Druid…

  • On paper treesinging is nice, but the fact that it can't move forests that touches a unit or move a forest under a unit make it really cumbersome to use. You can't make a forest follow your units. Essentialy you can move a bit a forest that is not very well placed on the battlefield and that's all. I would love to use treesinging every turn, but 90% of the time there is nothing to do with it. Quote from Giladis: “From a background and design perspective SE wizards are average at it but get their…

  • Quote from Bogi: “Yeah pretty much skip on the whole item section in the SE book. You might as well edit the pdf so that you accidently do not think about using any of those items. However you can use the kestrels and Eagle character's quiet effectively. Light troops and single models are what win games, no need to put them in the same unit but you can do so if you please, with this comes limitations because of the base size but it's doable. I would keep them as separate threats. Small dryad uni…

  • Quote from Wesser: “Kestrels lose both Vanguard and Feigned Flight.. Lifeseed Feathers is also a terrible bow, that only works for a character in Sentinels and even then it stinks ” Yeah I don't get why it hasn't been priced down. It's bad and no-one is playing it.

  • Looks nice, gj! I like the blue scheme, and the details are very easy to read. Maybe the gradient could be a tiny bit smoother though.

  • Unfortunately, missmatching basis sucks...

  • Quote from WhammeWhamme: “First, WRT "really close" - 16% is a notable gap; it's about the difference between succeeding on a 3+ and succeeding on a 2+. (.833 - .667 =.167) ” I haven't check your calculations, but this is wrong. going from 3+ to 2+ is actually a 25% increase ( (5/6) / (4/6) = 5/4 = 125%). +16% is equivalent to "for each HIT roll a dice. On a 6 you get two hits instead", i.e. you do 116% of the initial damages.

  • My idea is to give swift reforms to dryads anciant (instead of via aspects). Would give a bit more incentive to take one for something else than a redirector.

    Quote from Giladis: “@Minidudul Designers are not allowed to take inspiration from existing miniatures since that is Legaly unsafe therefore we cannot do what you ask. ” However if I remember well, designers are required to create entries such that there are at least three fitting minis from different compagnies available. Thus the question can be rephrased as showing three models that would fit the concept.

    Here is an updated version with a couple of new units! I've tried to stay very reasonnable in the complexity or crazyness, but I would really like to play these (the Storm Roc and the Forest swarm), and to find, build and paint models too. Tell me what you think about it! Sylvan Elves Homebrew

    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 know raid or battle planned, toss them asid…

    I'm not sure about that, It still gives you the opportunity to ambush from anywhere on the battlefield, and after that you're left with a monster. Not a very strong monster, but still stomping and with 4 riders. Also I'm sure it opens a lot of shenanigans. Like charging a unit with weak damage output with it and then ambushing out to get a flank charge then ext turn. Or ambushing out of it in front of warmachines or archery and using the leviathan to block the enemy unit that was supposed to pro…

    The issue being called "9th Scroll Issue 22 July 2020" makes it look a lot like it's the issue of the 22nd day of July. Also the cover image is really nice!

    I think the unit is cool and original! It probably needs good planning, but it has potentialto do degenerate stuff. I think the rule is not precise enough though. What happened if the unit is not big enough to touch all the units that were in combat with the leviathan for example?
