    Yes, we know @'EdSteiner''s Independent Mercenary States. And while I like many ideas inspired by Matthias Eliasson's army book, there are quite a few things I personally don't like, e.g. the Roc as a mount. We also think there are some balance issues with this book at the moment. @EdSteiner We don't mean to undermine your work by any means! It's just that our vision for the old Dogs of War is somewhat different. Regarding the fluff of the new book: There is only a little bit of fluff until now,…

    Well, it has almost been a month since you last heard from me. Next week, I'll probably be able to make a battle report to make up for it . It's going to be a battle between Nippon and another home brew army a friend of mine devised (I also helped here and there ). It's a Dogs of War army! We are currently working on the layout of a document that will eventually also be uploaded in a dedicated thread here. I think it captures the "spirit" of the old GW army pretty well... But that's enough with …

  • Quote from VampsinMD: “the lower you scale down, the better wizard conclaves become. character points are so limited... ” That's only partially true, as Wizard Conclaves are also much more expensive. You can get an ordinary Adept with Heirloom and Lightning Vambraces for ~300 points. That's 4 spells, which is enough for the magic phase. The Wizard Conclave is usually more expensive and grants only 2 spells, which usually means your magic phase is not nearly as versatile. Of course, you can then …

    Quite some time has passed since the last activity here... I was occupied with work and am moving to a new city, so my main concern lies somewhere else at the moment. But worry not, Nippon is not dead! In fact, you can find the next update below. And not just that, with @Ghiznuk 's (and other people's) help, we now also have a French version of the Nippon book. I worked on the German translation, so the new version is available in three languages! Here you go: Download Nippon 2.2.1 EN Download N…

    @Henrypmiller You can have a look at the very first post. The links there are mostly some years old already... Some still work, though.

    Thank you very much for thoroughly going through the texts! Quote from Ghiznuk: “Also, I note that the previous version says « The bearer gains +1 Armour and ignores the first unsaved wound it suffers. This can allow him to cancel a Multiple Wound (before multiplier). If the bearer suffers several wounds at the same time, choose which one is ignored. » I find this a much better wording. ” Thanks for pointing this out! I'll change it back to the original version. Quote from Ghiznuk: “Candle of th…

    Yes, that's the newest version. There are plans for another update some somewhat soonish™, though.

    @Ghiznuk I'm not sure I can make a .doc file out of the Latex files. But I have updated the Nippon book to the latest version of the Latex files, i.e. it is now compatible with the other Latex files from other offical books again. Would that also help? I can send you the entire folder, so replacing the language specific files should suffice.

    @Ghiznuk: I believe much of this is not from the most up-to-date version? Anyway, thanks for pointing this stuff out. I'll have a look at all those things and to see if they still are part of the new version!

    Quote from Jim_blade: “been running this list or at least a very similar list, for the last few games and it's Absoloutly smashing my regular opponent, with his skaven. ” That's interesting! Would you please share the lists you are playing against? I think both the Vermin Daemon and the Pendulum can both cause major problems for your list, as they both kill your characters rather effectively. Plus, with the limited amount of ranged damage potential in your list, both of them are somewhat safe an…

    Are there any artists here that could provide some icons? Nippon still needs a proper title page (and icons for the different clan Mons). So in total, Nippon needs seven icons in the style of the icons used in the other army books... ---------- I've started today to incorporate the recent feedback from this thread into the army book. This is the current change log: (Hidden Content)

    Quote from DarkSky: “Quote from Caledoriv: “fluff-wise it makes much more sense for it to be able to join units (and that can only happen if it has war platform). ” In that case: Please consider giving it a chassis and impact hits. All other war platforms have those as well and most of them are an Altar, Shrine, etc. just as much. Otherwise I feel, that 210 points is a massive waste. Remember: You lose at least 6, if not 9 models who could potentially attack. I'd never put it into my Warrior Mon…

    Quote from DarkSky: “But he also can't take the "only for wizards" item. This is my point. You use "Only on Shugenja" and "Only on Wizards", but those two terms are exactly the same (ruleswise) in the book. Unless you want to introduce a second Wizard character. ” I actually forgot that they changed the Crown of the WIzard King; it itself does not allow the bearer to wear a "wizard only" item. Because of this, there really is no difference. Quote from DarkSky: “In that case, I'd drop the option …

    Quote from DarkSky: “But a Shugenja is always a Wizard right? So there is not "Shugenja, but not a wizard" scenario. The BRB item specifically does not allow you to take items only for Wizards. ” Yes, but e.g. a Hatamoto wearing the Crown of the WIzard Kiing is not a shugenja, so he cannot take the item ;). Quote from DarkSky: “restrictions ” Mmmh, the restrictions were there since before the new WotDG book was released. I didn't pay attention to how this has changed for the new books, as these …

    Whew... There is a lot to cover again. Thanks for the feedback! Quote from DarkSky: “Is there a functional difference between "Wizards only" and "Shugenja only"? I couldn't find one. ” Yes: The rule book item that makes the character a wizard cannot use it. This item was originally a Horumi-Clan item only; that's why it said Shugenja. I didn't change it, but game play wise it doesn't make a difference in my opinion anyway. Quote from Velmates: “What about an upgrade for samurai cavalry and/or re…

    Quote from Marcos24: “@Caledoriv when you started this, had someone told you “just so you know, the book you’re start and finish will likely not be made official, at the very least not as you leave it”, would you have still made it? ” I started with Nippon years before T9A even existed . In the beginnings of T9A, I still "had hope" for it. But after some time (maybe 1 year?), I realised that it won't happen (at least not in the next 10 or so years). Partly also because some people told me exactl…

    Thanks for the feedback! Quote from DarkSky: “A Sode is basically a shield not using up a hand. [...] This may cause problems with rules concerning shields. ” I see it more as an "upgrade" for the armour. It is not really a shield, but a "plate armour plus". You can use two-handed weapons with it (as can all races with access to plate armour). But since there are no shields in the army, the Sode grants at least access to the shield enchantments it otherwise wouldn't have access to and thus impro…

    So what's the problem? I thought there'd be significant changes needed anyway for the homebrew books if anything "official" was to happen with it? Whatever that means; be it a "T9A approved stamp" or indeed an official supplement book or something else entirely. I never thought the current iteration would get "accepted" / "stamped" / whatever as it is. Sure, some mechanics can / should be reused to keep the identity of the army. But that doesn't mean every unit in the book must be transferred as…
