  • It used to be that Random Move gave the model Fearless. Also, Fire Phoenixes used to be Fearless on their own accord. Both of these things are now long gone from the game, which means that my advice is moot.

  • Quote from elendor_f: “Seeing as there is a 68-pages long (and going on strong) recent thread about whether T9A is currently "The Age of Single Models", I thought it would be interesting to submit the following question to this thread: What to do when your opponent's list features several strong, mobile, hard-hitting single models? I realize that the scope of the question is very broad, and the question leaves one's own list completely open, so feel free to narrow the scope down a bit to your li…

    So an overdue reply to this thread! First off, I'm glad to see more players coming back to the Beast Herds. The amount of variety in the lists is a pleasure to see, and every last one of them is very well constructed. I hope they all do great, as is fitting for BH armies. Quote from youngseward: “Beast Herds 710 - Minotaur Warlord, General, Light Armour (Aaghor's Affliction), Paired Weapons (Blessed Inscriptions), Crown of Horns 585 - Soothsayer, Wizard Master, Druidism, Light Armour ( Essence o…

It specifically affects the models that could not under normal circumstances attack RnF due to characters/champions in duels being the only models in btb.

  • If by working you mean “you just won the internet”, then I think it does. Thank you, sir, for making my day !

  • Any reason in particular that this thread is in the Beast Herds subforum? Is it aimed at BH players? Is BH input required? I've yet to play a game against the new book, so I'll reserve the tips until after I've seen what the army does in practice.

    Amazing stuff! So many nice conversions, and the colour scheme ties everything together. I really like the blood spatters on the banners, plus the sickly green glow that makes the forest seem warped by chaos. Well done, sir! Do you have anything on your painting table right now?

    Quote from BigBird990: “Is "sliding" still a compulsory thing to engage more bases or does that require an explicit reform? Be sad if the gortach gets slid down into contact with a load of WDG chosen after they butcher all the dogs! ” Actually sliding is not allowed at all: when charging, you have to try and maximize the amount of total models in combat, while respecting all movement/charging limitations (including the one-wheel clause). After that, any unit that is NOT engaged on multiple front…

  • Very interesting topic, thanks for bringing this up! Since most of us are in an introspective journey, I'll add my 2p. First off, losing every single game you play is a challenge, and even the most optimistic fellow can be deterred by it. That said, I know a few people in my local community who attend tournaments and lose consistently all of their games. And they still keep coming, and they still have a good time doing so. But I admit that I probably couldn't. Here's what I've observed about mys…

    My bladedancer Prince with Titanic Might and Glyph of Amryl begs to differ. I've seen a lot of Pathfinder princes lately, in shooting-heavy lists. Two of them = roughly the same effectiveness as a full unit of Pathfinders. Not my cup of tea, but a lot of people swear by them. I agree that the Forest Guardian is a bit lackluster, but I bet you could make him work in a Forest Ranger unit with the spear and potentially the Glyph of Amryl to protect him against challenging monster-characters. Having…

    @Zikum @Iluvatar I'm re-iterating the question. I've got a tournament report coming up, and odds are I won't have enough image left in my limit to be able to post it. Is there any workaround? (the only person with more images hosted on this site than myself is Blondebeer, and he's over 1000 so I'd imagine there's a way?)

    Apologies for the lack of activity, recently I've been doing some (UB) gaming instead of painting on my spare time. I ran out of primer spray, which has put a damper on my painting activity. But I did manage to paint some...unit fillers! First off, a Herd Stone for my Beast Herds: this will probably act as a terrain piece for my display board, whenever I get around to making it. Or it could fill in for 16 Wildhorns/Longhorns (the only base that can fit it would be a 100x100 base). the-ninth-age.…

  • Quote from AxelVicious: “Hello. You're write up of my list is like the discussions i've had with myself and the team for the last week. I know Druidism is better but i really hate that Magic Lore, it bores me to tears so i thought i'd try without it. I may regret it. I initially wanted to go for 4 units of Minos but my team talked me down to taking one big block at least. So if the little units of 3 are terrible then it's my own fault. I also wanted to take Great Weapons on them, a shameless the…

  • Greetings! The wonders of the internet are such that even in the madness that is the current crisis, the good folks from Team USA were able to organize an online T9A team tournament! The tournament is -appropriately- called "Social Distancing 2020" and it involves no less than 34 teams (4 players each) for a total of 136 players from all over the world! The games will be fought on UB over the course of a month. I took the liberty of copy-pasting the Beast Herds lists for your enjoyment and criti…

    Quote from Sodder: “Been pondering one this for some time now - how would one ever stand a chance of taking out anything but the flimsiest of cowboys with the jabber breath. Skirmishers and magers wandering off on their own I get but cowboys - I'm just not seeing it. ” I'll admit that I wanted this part to be provocative. But essentially it's not about killing cowboys outright. It's about having in the list a combination of options that make using them more difficult and riskier. In other words:…

    Update! I speed-painted some Forest Eagles. They are far from perfect, but they are fine for now. the-ninth-age.com/community/ga…bcbb8d5e5455db5d491c9b422 I also put some paint on the unit fillers/falconers WiP. the-ninth-age.com/community/ga…bcbb8d5e5455db5d491c9b422 There will probably be more models/stuff on the base, but I wanted to see how the converted models would look with some paint on. One of the guys is missing any highlights for now. Here's the "finished" guy: the-ninth-age.com/commu…

    I can wholeheartedly recommend the Wildform+Hero's Heart Chieftain combo: R6 with Parry is probably the best protection that model can get on foot. Others might prefer Aaghor's, but the downside is that it kind of forces you to go for a weapon that strikes last, plus losing the Parry. And flaming attacks are not that rare in the current gaming scene.
