Fellow T9A gamers, it's finally time for the annual balance update. Not a moment too soon! Find all information about it in our news.

The latest issue of the 9th Scroll is available! You can read all about it in the news.

  • Quote from Alexwellace: “If this continues to be the state of affairs, then in my opinion we have failed as a project in terms of Veil Serpents. There *SHOULD* be more than one role for Veil Serpents. And their Wizard Conclave should be a choice, not an auto-include. The aim of internal balance updates should be to improve the internal balance of the book, which means lifting up the under-used choices to enable more list variety, without actively improving the things that are doing well already …

  • Quote from Alexwellace: “Harbinger of Father Chaos - Mount options. Problem: All Harbinger mounts besides the Dark Pulpit see relatively little play, being deemed too expensive, especially if you start kitting the Herald out. Thus some of the units which a Mounted Harbinger could support, Flies and Brazens and Sirens, rarely are accompanied by a Harbinger. There is also an issue with the Flying Great Beast of prophecy being the wrong unit type to support flies, however, I think this is beyond th…

  • Quote from Alexwellace: “Would a unit of 6 Veil Serpents for a suggested 354pts see play as 18 flying wounds with psudo agility 7 on the charge? ” I wouldn't field it (maybe if my hobby end of it looked really cool, but I wouldn't for the rules). In my opinion, Veil Serpents have only one role: They have Twisted Effigy access and don't count towards characters. So if you don't have a wizard character with witchcraft and don't want to die to shooting, a minimum unit of Veil Serpents has some meri…

  • Maybe this is on purpose, but I'm looking at the ID dwarf core options. Why is the Sword+Board option lower Str+AP than the Sword+Board+Pistol option? Got the Infernal Warriors with Str 3 and ap 0 Sword+Board. And then we have the Citadel Guard with Str 4 and ap 1 Sword+Board+Pistol. Is the idea to exaggerate the limitation of using a Hand Weapon in close combat? Seems like it would be really practical to be able to take a slightly lower cost Citadel Guard unit with just sword+board. And fluff-w…

  • Oh, for DL, there's somehow an extra "n" in Centipede Legs. Reads: Centinpede Legs Very minor problem, but it prevents the lexicon link from latching onto it with Text output settings.

    Thanks to @EdSteiner for updating armybuilder with the points patch. Here's the current list in progress: (Hidden Content) I think I misspelled "assassintants"

  • Quote from Glonojad: “Is it just me, or is the Grail Vow's description (on the printout) blank? ” Could be in your advanced output settings. If you go to print preview, advanced output is a button that looks like three horizontal exclamation marks. I have mine set up to save paper, by default, so it's very stripped down.

  • Okay, so request, though I understand it might require too much work. Armybuilder has this cool feature for unit cards. File > Save Custom Output > Unit Cards (3x3) Outputs to a .htm file which unfortunately can't be attached. Got some screenshots: (Hidden Content) So the problem I have is that the unit cards don't say which unit has which rules. So the long list of rules is not very useful, since I'll be going back through the armybook anyway. And it doesn't list magical path selections, comman…

  • Quote from Traumdieb: “Taurukhmage is pretty much a dead option. Since you need a lot of Taurukhs to protect him that is not Bodyguard. No request for this ” For me, I just don't really like the idea of a dwarf centaur. Hmm....I suppose maybe I could get behind some sort of dwarf werewolf...which could probably fit in the same rules.

    Quote from clorens: “I'm thinking that the only way to change IP would be in exchange for hatred and regeneration of 4+, that would make us less glass cannon and less dependent on druidism and minotaurs ” You mean, make BH into an army of beasts with special saves? That's DL, if you want to try it.

  • Quote from Traumdieb: “A.) If the wizard was the target has if hit channel 2 instead of 3 since its one model. ” Since channel applies per model part, wouldn't it reduce the channel value of each model part by 1?

    Quote from Kallstrom: “A question to everyone. What about Beast Herds/Beastmen is it that really strikes your fancy? Is it the look of the army, the feel of the army, a certain special rule, a certain unit? Could that one thing that you really like be amplified or applied to the rest of the army somehow? How would that work? ” Absolutely nothing about actual army is appealing to me. Rules-wise, it's like a horde variant of DL, which means lots of purchasing for very expendable forces. I suppose …

    Waiting for points update, not really doing much. Today I decided to update the miscast table lexicon. The previous version had a "click here to see the full text of the miscast table" in the abstract. This version has a separate article for each result on the miscast table, so I could fit it all in the abstract of the main miscast article. 111, 222, 333, 444, 555, 666, 777 I decided these triple numbers probably won't be a problem since they are likely to only come up when referencing miscasts.…

  • Quote from Cultivator: “Iron husk makes no difference against either of the two divination missiles or against cannons. Omen with Iron husk, hard target, general and no magic is 865 points in 5 wounds. Giving him more manifestations makes the problem worse rather than better, because there's no way to give him reliable protection, and all it takes is a slight spike in your opponents rolls to take all those points (+200 if general). Seven wounds gives you wriggle room on the scourge. Courtesan is…

    Here's one for BH. While BH probably won't have an entire creature type dedicated to hives of things, might have a single character that is more a swarm than a single creature. Schools of fish in creeks, bees in a hive, a pack of tiny dogs, whatever. Strength of the Swarm Weapon Enchantment Bearer's attacks Always strike at Str 1. Bearer's attack characteristic equals it's base attack multiplied by it's Str.

  • If you don't like the T9A fluff, join the background team. It's their call. I'm not a huge fan of the T9A fluff, but it doesn't bother me enough to where I join the background team. Pick your battles, right?

  • Omen has a crazy high base cost for a character who's only got a 6+ save. Or rather, crazy high for a unit that almost always fails their saves. Yes, that's 4+ vs magic, but even a 4+ save is pretty low for 510pt character. Means that they only save half the time. And those crappy saves must further be re-rolled vs divine attacks. 1: Seriously, 6+ save for a 510pt character? 2: Why isn't brimstone secretions free for characters?

  • I still think my three are the best, of course.... Quote from Chronocide: “1. Increase Max unit size of all units - Rank and file game with an army that can't take much in the way of ranks or files. Bump the DL core to units of 40 max. Bump the 5-15 units to 5-25, bump the 3-6 to 3-9. Make our single model units into units of 1-3 (aside from the hope harvester). 2. Brimstone Secretions, Incendiary Ichor, Chitinous Scales and Iron Husk - Price and Price of Characters who can take them is too high…
