  • You could easily take the basic idea and tweak it, certainly. I'm sure someone with a better mind than me could expand upon it to be something more challenging. I guess I prefer simplicity but everyone is different. Thanks for taking the time to look at it.

  • Quote from Pellegrim: “I see, thanks. So @BlackLobster's variant is based more on ME. Which seems more practical. ” The basic idea was built around Mighty Empires but with some ideas taken from other sources. The main one being disregarding the map tile system as it was felt awkward to keep track of when a short list/summery of territory worked easier and better. The only downside that we had would come from one or two players who wanted to play everyone as though it were a league system. Normal…

  • Thanks. It's a hodge podge of ideas from different campaign systems over the years that I found works well for a fun and casual bit of gaming.

  • I posted a homebrew campaign system in that section. That's the sort of campaign I prefer. That basic leagues.

  • Quote from krzechu: “The general rules for discipline tests apply, so you choose any model in the unit to make the test, this may be the character - 5.C.a page 15. ” Aha! Thank you!

  • If a character is in a unit and you want that unit to March, does the unit roll it's own discipline or does it use the character's if better? I've been reading and I can't see it anywhere. Thanks.

    They are really nice models. Very pleased with Mantic's designs.

    “I saw thousands of them. A sea of the dead that roared like an ocean! You would have heard them screaming toward you. It would have taken days to steer them away. Killing them? I don't think killing them would have been possible.” Another busy week or so with little hobby time. Although now that the shops have opened again here I have managed to get the T9A rulebook printed and bound which will make it much easier to read and play with. I've also started painting my new skeletons. As they are m…

    Not had much hobby time this week due to work and my girlfriends birthday so all I have managed to do is rebase the cavalry on some rectangular bases. When I get around to basing the models, I can cover up the remains of the old base. Also had a bit of a boo boo this week. Ordered some bases from Ebay to redo my AoS skeletons but ended up ordering 25m bases by mistake. Ordered the right ones now so itll be another week before I can sort those. The forty skeletons I got from Mantic are undercoate…

  • Quote from Chronocide: “T9A has sparkly vampires. ” Don't scare me. Please.

  • Dear sage, All my life I have heard stories of vampires. Everything from shape-shifting in to wolves and bats to drinking the blood of virgin girls. But I was always told that vampires could not be abroad during the light of day. However, my cousin, who has served in the Emperor's army claims to have seen one out at midday leading an army of the undead. How is this possible? Should he not be dust under the harsh light of the sun?

  • Redirected from my original background/lore thread: If I remember correctly, under WFB vampires were not traditional vampires as they were not affected by exposure to sunlight. A simple conceit I guess to allow them to lead armies and fight by day. But I was curious whether this is the same for the vampires of T9A or do they have some other means of protecting themselves from sunlight on the battlefield?

    Thank you both. I know that in the original stories that it wasn't such a big deal but modern public image of vampire lore holds that they are destroyed by sunlight and I figure most fantasy games of some kind tend to incorporate that. I was just curious. Thanks for the link, I'll post it there.

  • Quote from Peacemaker: “Post some cool conversions and when people ask what you use it for you can be like "divine altar in T9A" or "arcane Engine" or "knight commander on young griffon", etc.... . That will peak people's interests and then they will come check out T9A. ” That's basically how I got here. I had joined a "The Old World" Facebook page looking to see if it was something that would draw my club's old WFB players out of the woodwork and someone mentioned that they would be playing T9A…

    Quote from saint_barbara: “Wraiths seem very graveyardy to me. And banshees fit the theme very well as well. In regard to expanding the skellies I'd consider a few fillers now. They are great for gameplay (easy to unpack etc), cool to convert and very rewarding in terms of time/value. Here @Gasior has fillers ranging from 12 to 20 models: Show me what you get - coronavirus army review ” Wraiths are definitely on my list. Mantic do some nice scythe wraith models which will do very nice. I also wa…

    1000 points now built. Just got to paint the remaining skeletons to have it painted and ready for my first game. Then I can paint my vampire count at which point all my current models will be painted. With that ready to go, I now consider where to go next. Mainly I do want another unit of skeletons which are spears rather than sword and board, but how big should I expand my units to? Should I expand each unto by another 10 or even 20 models? Thoughts?

    Couple hours to go before I had to head off to work so I figured I'd open up that box of skeletons from Mantic. I am so pleased with their models. Admittedly they are mono-pose but the bodies are effectively snap fit with a tiny bit of glue. They go together so much better than the Games Workshop ones. I think I'll be buying more from Mantic I think now. Half a unit built so far and the rest ready to go tonight when I get home. In other news, this week I have bought some square and cavalry bases…

  • Thanks. I'm going to stick to T9A. Even if I can't get many of my club members to play, I know there are local-ish players that I can hopefully get games against.

  • Range to attacks would be reduced while charge distances would effectively be slightly longer. Your opponent may also not get as many models into attack range due to base sizes. It's fine. I'm not overly worried about AoS. I prefer more generic fantasy. AoS just feels like a 1960's prog-rock album cover.
