  • VC in the Ocho tournament

    Wesser - - Vampire Covenant (VC)

    Post

    Im going through the tournament data And currently I'm leaning toward the problem not being VC being overnerfed/underpowered per se, but rather list variety being very low There is an extreme amount of exactly the same few character builds. There are a lot of shall we call it "jaded synergies" (people just isn't surprised at Strigoi rush lists anymore) and lets just say that unit usage in the book is not evenly spread. - A LOT of units see little to no use - Several units are seen in multiples o…

  • Quote from Cam: “ VC second bottom is a surprise! ” Not really VC seems to be struggling atm and list variety is very low. Im halfway through the tournament data and it is getting really boring seeing the same configurations and builds over and over

  • Hmmm One thing that always bothered me about GW Dark Elves was that the beastmaster theme and the raider theme always dermed at odds with each other. Oh, I know that there can be different themes within a book. SE Pathfinders and Wild Huntsmen doesnt seem to have Much in common for example, yet they do share a theme of being one with the forest. I have vastly more difficulty making Thunder Herds, Corsairs and Temple Militants fit thematically together I not entirely sure, how cool I think it is …

  • Could perhaps use a simplification for the Dragonseeker Recently lost a game partially because I missed Lethal Strike among his ... is it 12-15 special rules?

    Wesser - - Infernal Dwarves (ID)

    Post

    Quote from rolan: “you are right about immortals being somewhat redundant, but that cannot be the only reason as lurgars are still used, only immortals are not ” Dunno about redundant The other day we had an Immortal/Overlord engaged in a no-budge against Count/Barrow Guard with shields (probably the BEST matchup VC have for Immortals) and only vastly superior magic buffing Saw the BG narrowly beat the Immortals after 7 combat rounds. Both greatweapon hordes and Disciples would have folded under…

  • Quote from eggsPR: “Quote from Wesser: “Used a Court today against ID. Sadly a Titan Mortar blew it and its accompanying unit totally apart in 2 shots. Its really vulnerable to Catapults ” You gotta rush it faster. Give the unit +1M banner, then 5 dice Danse Macabe to get close to the flintlocks, then eat some chaff. Then maybe you can use it once that's cleared out. ” Eh, it was shot in Turn 2 and then in Turn 3 after it had broken a unit. There wasnt a problem as such other than Catapults bein…

  • To be honest complexity creep is my main fear as well. Well perhaps after more things like Hellmaw which is REALLY should only be allowed on UB...

    Wesser - - Battle Reports

    Post

    5000 points vs. @Izzilduuurand his Infernal Dwarfs yet again . As usual we played Frontline and Multiple Objectives. I took it on myself to add a bit of fluff text for fun (I’m no writer), and amused myself naming a few of my opponent’s characters for him (haha). Infernal Dwarves: Mutiny (Own General must be dead, while one other character survive), Precious Cargo (Immortals must survive) and Message (Vassal Conjurer must start a turn from Turn 4 onwards in enemy deployment zone) Vampire Counts:…

  • Quote from Falco: “Why not BsB with spear instead of the spear prince? I mean, faill one test is common and with it you reduce that problem... The rest for me is ok, maybe doble strenght buff would be better but with that magic is ok ” Probably because the unit Will be really vulnerable to enemy single characters. That Prince in in with a fighting chance against mist things

  • I dont get small units of Heath Hunters. Too expensive to be good redirectors, too little firepower for it have a job. Bigger units of 10 are cheaper Per model and able to do more jobs IMO And ofc... failing frenzy with WH Prince.. especially if with Briar Maidens.. can suck Bows the magic setup working out? I havent been able to make myself use Big Ranger units without Druidism, but you tempt me...

  • Asklanders maybe...

  • Even Wolf Chariots lose a crewmember

  • Quote from da_griech: “So SE should be as hard hitting in combat as DE (if they want to field such list) but DE should not be as shooty as SE (if they want to field shooty lists)? I kind of suspect you play SE ” In that scenario SE wouldnt have better shooting troops per se, but rather more kinds of shooting units whilst DE would have fewer and more specialized shooting units (which would also mean that while building a DE shooting list could be possible it would be likely be specialized with a …

  • Quote from DanT: “Quote from JamesMcDonnell: “From what I have observed the past few months the book is far more popular with people who hadn't played ID before than it is with people who played previous versions of the book. ” This was my observation about DL too. I have made this observation directly to a member of the EXB and the head of the Rules Team. My concerns were treated with some skepticism, but I hope it is something that will be monitored in future. ” How much of that is due to Coro…

  • Quote from Peacemaker: “Quote from Wesser: “Certainly not A CC-oriented should have better tools to get into combat as Well as better choice of combat units, but if they straight out outperform other armies then why would those other armies take CC troops at all? ” Outperform them overall. Not versus. ” Still no. More choice of different combat units- Yes. More options for getting into CC (Mist Leviathans and such) - Yes Stronger in CC - No. All armies need to have about equally competitive CC o…

  • Quote from da_griech: “Quote from Aenarion43: “There’s a reason Lion Guard + Spear Lord is the build, usually with Div. FWIW, I do think Lion Guard (kills monsters and high AP) is the thing to test against Judicators. I’ve always seen it as Lion Guard + Judicators +/- Forest Rangers (since these are units designed to tackle The Tough Stuff and Armor) being each other’s counterparts. Meanwhile, Tower Guard, Sword Masters, and Blade Dancers are each others’ counterparts (as they are made to chew t…

  • Goblins-DH Marching Columns/Spoils of War 0-20 MVP: Nothing LVP: Me & Dice First game of Crippling Rides and it was over after turn 1. Eerily Accurate Cannon fire one-shotted my Gargantula General, killed both Wrecking teams and send 2 big goblin units fleeing over the table edge. I hadn't read properly through the wall of text of the Dragonseeker and didnt realise he also had Lethal Strike which cost me my Huntsman Cowboy, who I thought would be an excellent blocker. My turn 2 then started with…
