  • Quote from Babnik Kalenina: “a lance formation, is it the 6 attacks hitting on 4's with only 6 wounds resilience 3? ... And we know what happens next when we play MSU I play Brets/KOE for eons, in 9TH AGE I started with full cavalry Then I added 2 trebuchets, switch into 2 scorpions Then I discoved Forlorns knights Today I'm painting my second unit of 45 men-at-arms! Tomorrow I'll play 1 big block of Forlorn and 2 big blocks of peasants with only 6 realm to grant them march 10' Ah I nearly forgo…

  • Quote from jirga: “Does this image give you some ideas? It was my favourite part in the film The King on Netflix. rpatzz-the-king-1.gif ” That scene was ridiculous lol. Overall the costume design in that movie was pretty slick. They had Falstaff’s armor on display at the theatre I saw it at in downtown LA, whoever did the armor did a nice job of stylizing while still keeping it fairly historically accurate and functional. I’m a sucker for any movie with a trebuchet though, you could get me to wa…

  • Oh yeah, a small picnic table with a wheel of cheese and a few bottles of wine, maybe some grapes. Nothing says medieval France like a few bottles

  • I’ve never liked the idea of a “unit” of hunting hounds, however a fun upgrade for a castelan might be a “pair of hunting hounds” change his base size to 75x50mm give a bonus to charge range and damage to Yeomen and it could be a very very cool modeling opportunity.

  • Hooves? Yep I’m sold on the battle-bison! the Offensive-Oxen! the unyielding yacks! the Skirmish-steer! but like seriously @GSbasic you gotta add something to the spoiler: what are we supposed to visualize these things look like? I don’t want to find out years from now I’ve pictured them all wrong (like that time I said Bi-opic instead of Bio-pic and all my friends made fun of me) edit: ninja’d by @Giladis

  • I got your back - background write up Incoming: In the history of mysterious mysteries there has never been a bigger mystery than that which the mystery keepers of the Daeb mysteriously watch over. That is, until now! Now the ancient mystery of the Daeb will be revealed! ————- Spoiler go! j/k the spoiler is still a mystery... sorry I’m bored

  • There’s also this idea: Liege Lord (or Tip of the Lance?) - R&F models in a unit joined by this character may use the OS of this character when charging. give this rule to the basic duke/paladin, but not to Grail or Questing Characters. It would give a reason for players to take naked paladins, take Realm Dukes rather than questing or Grail dukes, and help tremendously with rubber Lance. All without really changing much in the way of charge potential (in a unit of 11 knights + champion the c…

  • Quote from Casp: “Fully agree with you @Ludaman Except as EOS player I should say about character role .. you forget synergy ” Yeah there are certainly exceptions. Some characters have bodyguard, some armies are EoS lol, but yeah synergy is a possible reason also, I just see it as less common outside of EoS in tournament play.

  • Currently there are really only 3 reasons to take a “combat” character in most armies: 1. Blender 2. Cowboy 3. Leadership Bubble (feel free to convince me I’m wrong) KoE typically goes Blender (Might Duke) and gets the added bonus of being able to murder most characters also. Virtues need more diversity and removal of the no-brainer option. Any talk of reducing eliteness walks a fine line between Fluff goals (why should a human be more elite than an dwarf/elf), and the reality of gameplay (why s…

  • I think statues of women holding grails would be a nice idea for a marker as well, also a hand coming out of a pool of water holding a sword

  • The dreams of @Bretboy84 are kept alive for another day

  • Quote from Scottish Knight: “@Marcos24 - quick question about Sir Prodigious - what happened to his 5th fingers? ” Clearly his fight with that werewolf (varkolak?) had two little fingers as casualties. Now who’s good at sculpting/painting scar tissue?

  • Regarding Standard Cavalry Eliteness vs. Monstrous Cavalry Eliteness: It’s been mentioned that the idea of Hippogryph Knights is probably a non starter since KoE is supposed to focus on the strength of their knights rather than the strength of the mount (like demigryphs). This means that the role of Monstrous Cavalry in KoE will probably need to filled by Standard Cavalary and Grail knights seem like the best option. comparing a unit of 5 Grail knights with 3 attacks each to 3 chosen knights you…

  • Yeah, I can’t wait for the this KS, just excellent minis being offered all around.

  • I suppose it depends on what the BGT decides as far as grail knight fluff goes. If they’re just really nice virgins that earned the grail by being the most friend-zoneable dudes the Lady could find, then they should probably just be Realm knights with divine attacks and better aegis saves. if they’re supposed to be epic heroes of legend according to the BGT then it makes sense for them to be taken in small units like chosen and have the same basic stats as paladins (They are after-all a unit of …

  • Quote from Giladis: “@Ludaman the DE direction is a conscious choice of the majority of the TT, it is not mandated from above or universally supported ” And here I was trying to compliment the teams

  • It’s a valid topic, but the problem isn’t necessarily the “core-tax” but rather the overlapping of function. With KoE we have aspirants (weak knights with lances) realms (better knights with lances) Grails (best knights with lances) Now the function of aspirants vs. Realms is different enough (due to the lower strength and devastating charge on the aspirants) that the two units are used differently and both have roles, however Grails are just “Better Realm Knights” in every way. probably the eas…

  • The announcement that KoE will be next after VS got me thinking about ideas for background stories for the FAB. I’ll bet I’m not the only one either. If you have ideas for stories (not ideas or opinions about the background itself) that you’d like to read in the new book post them here. Maybe someone on the background team suffering from writer’s block or looking for inspiration will see this thread and run with something one of us jotted down. Anyway here are my ideas in no particular order, fe…

  • Quote from Cultivator: “My inner Bretonnian doesn't know how to deal with getting a book in reasonable time. I was all settled in to wait at least another decade. ” Just keep the patient attitude at the ready for the release of “The Winds of Winter” in 2034...

  • Well I for one am quite excited. There are some very cool background themes that have never been touched on in an army like this: Number one for me being, The Lady rewards Knights who follow a virtuous path with supernatural power and ability, however as most of us know getting ahead in the world (especially the medieval world) requires virtue that can be easily set aside in order to achieve your ambition. Finally getting a chance to see the fluff fleshed out between the factions and families of…
