    Quote from Kdownunder: “For me the treemen with boulders and heroes with magical bows are ok but that's pretty much where I draw the line. Lack of warmachines has to include tools to take out those of what opponent has. ” What about chariots? I guess they are warmachines (but not arty obvs) Yes it makes them more like other elves, but the ancient Britons were a chariot culture in a heavily forested land. It feels kind if right

    Thats not a bad thought. I think he is tailor made for my old Orion model, with his spear as the “Sapling bow” I guess it good also work as a sort of treefather skittling opponents with boulders - but his stats are a bit different. I guess it admits the fact that SE do have a warmachine function of sorts.

    Quote from theunwantedbeing: “Some sort of "Sapling Bow" with a 30" range that works like a bolt thrower, but you can move and shoot with it and we perhaps give it Quick to Fire as well? ” how about seeing it as a unit upgrade like a weapons team - not a war machine. Its lightweight and man portable and keep up with the unit but something the unit takes to deal with something a bit tougher/armoured/multi wound. The SAW or AT team for a squad/platoon - A bit like a Gastrophites, but on a light fr…

    Quote from Falco: “Totally no As I don’t want dwarves or vermins with cavalry I don’t want SE be able to have warmachines neither. Each army has a style, which is more or less, unique, if all the armies are able to take all, we will have the same army with different models. Focus on mobile light shooting and maybe magical bows for heroes can do things like boltthrowers... also thickets could have bows (like shabtis for example) ” I completely agree with the differentiation point - otherwise we a…

    oh yeah. It would add substantially to the cost - but not the base cost. A pile of suitable rocks would be a rare and expensive commodity in the forest so I’d expect to a pay a premium for the upgrade - both for the extra utility that SE dont expect, and the fact it is a dual use model

    I know warmachines are not part of our design - and the idea of an SE catapult or cannon seems unfluffy and wrong - but the new Illumineth bolt thrower got my thinking - its basically a bigger bow, lightweight and in green and woodtones would look pretty fluffy - a longish range 36”? maybe S5 but with AP and D3 multi wound capability - with move and shoot cos its so lightweight. Would that not be a fit? Also treemen chucking a rock - functionally its a shorter range stonethrower, but making a su…

    Quote from berti: “I have seen way more 15 man spear units, due to the huge benefit spears got over basically parry in a WS4 unit. But of course I have a very limited knowledge of international tournaments. ” I’d just like the ability to be sub-optimal if I choose... just fluff and WYSIWYG really. Anyway. I’ll leave it now. Cheers all for the discussion

    Quote from MountainBuns: “I think the load out of a beast breaker is sword and board. ” Yes - correct. Thats good news at any rate. I hadn’t spotted that (I like the revisions to Raiding Party Btw) @DarkSky - in the true spirit of whack-a-mole does this now invalidate the rationale for point 2c you raise in your reply? 2a&b IF true (grateful if you could get a steer from the team) still don’t seem to answer the Hippocratic “first do no harm” principle - If it doesnt achieve a tangible good and c…

    Ok. So practical way forward. 1) What was the real, justifiable reason for making the change and squatting sword and board? 2) If there is one, then is that justifiable over the debits - because it is not pain free or without consequence. 3) If its not, then why not have a simple - “they come in sword and board, would you like to supersize that to free spears with your order sir?” At the moment it seems like needless pain. How about some persuasion that it is necessary pain?

    @DarkSky Thanks for the response - I get what you are saying but you are still invalidating my models as Legionaires - all you are doing in your solution is to “give” me 30 more auxiliaries to add to the many I already have (properly modelled with rbx) and leaving me with nothing in my collection that isnt visually misleading to field as the new legionnaires. (Because as per your suggestion they will look like auxilleries with stowed xbows) I guess I could go out and spend more of my hard earned…

    Quote from DarkSky: “Quote from Vulgarsty: “A bit disappointed that my 30 sword and board midhammer plastic legionnaires are still invalidated in Alpha 2. ” They aren't you can use them for Auxiliaries. ” Sorry - appreciate you were trying to help but that just shifts the problem. I dont want them with rxb and I dont want to pay for that. The game promised “Not to invalidate my models” well you are - and saying I can break WYSIWYG and immersion by proxying my sword and board warriors for spearme…

    A bit disappointed that my 30 sword and board midhammer plastic legionnaires are still invalidated in Alpha 2. Why not have them come with sword and board but with a free spear option?

  • Ah OK, I wondered if it was part of an overarching plan to look at the cultures of our world, consider those that were iconic but would never get a full AB (I know the reasons why it is capped at 18 and understand perfectly that rationale), but at the price of fewer balance guarantees and auto tourney acceptance (although in practice the supps so far as so well and fairly done tourneys do seem to be allowing them from what ive seen) and slot them in under the most obvious parent faction. Instead…

  • So UD already have two extra builds in their Slimbook - Terracotta Army and Barrow Legion which will likely be replaced by supplements rather than variant builds in a new LAB. Any inklings on what undead supplements there might be and where they might sit? An ethereal heavy ghosts faction under VC seems like an option. very weak and low armour, but high special save and good AP would be nice - a chance to use all those nighthaunt minis and those manyic scarecrows... What about a cattle faction, …
