  • 5.2. UF - Fire Rain Lanterns Quote from Edmund Feuerbach (Marshal during the Augean expedition of 872 A.S.): “We were closing on the location described in the intercepted Tsuandanese communication. We had been spot and observed since earlier that day, as we saw some riders in the distance. It would be a tough fight then... we expected a small garrison, but couldn't ourselves detach more men. All odds were on our side though, and even at a dire cost this would be a worthy mission: seizing their s…

    Quote from clorens: “I dont like, without pi or more strength that army has no option to win combats, it is an army that does not kill and that in the hands of a player who is not capable of loadin will hardly obtain benefits one more point of r will not lead to to be better I thought that hatred and fortitude was a good solution to replace pi and that the idea was well received, because a block of W that is rammed does not win a combat in life, try that codex against the new one of dark elves ”…

  • Quote from Remy77077: “Those are all lovely! That Prelate is great - greenstuff converted chainmail there? (I can't click Like tho due to one of those the unit fillers! ) ” I believe it is the normal horse head/chainmail for Luthor Huss. Great minis and fillers, I might steal some ideas

    Quote from Exalted Champion: “@Idum I think the toughness thing as the main defense/protection should be an army wide thing. How do you see minotaurs or razortusks tanky? They have almost zero armour and no other saves. ” For mino and razor, I wanted them to be able to take charges as well so some elements are (less) hyper-dependent on the charge. They are not unkillable (at all) but their Res 5 ensures a much improve survivability against small arms fire and anti-monstruous beast/infantry arti…

    Yes the brutal insticts gradation from 4+ (with hereditary) to 6+ is exactly that! For the hereditary I am not so happy with the wording, English isn't my native language but even then it feels clumsy. I'm sure there is a way to re-write it that would feel easier. For wildhorns, initially instead of impact hits they had Dev Chg (+1 Att, +1 Res) to make them a bit less rules-heavy but it is really the impact hits that represent best their heabutting into melee. In the end it has a limited impact …

    Quote from Exalted Champion: “Really like all of your ideas. Especially the change to wildhorns and the briar beasts. Though i would suggest to keep at least a few units with Primal Instinct in the book. For example the minotaur fraction or at least the mino characters. Also i would like to see the devastating charge (- 1 to wound) somewhere. Maybe for razortusks and longhorns. ” Indeed minos were among the most difficult to replace Primal Instinct while staying at a similar or higher eliteness!…

    Hotfixed, several typos and copy/paste artifacts ahd made it through. There's probably some left, if you find anything dubious (scoring on mongrel raiders...) don't hesitate to raise it up!

    Quote from Exalted Champion: “Wow. Great. By far the best brainstorming idea about wildhorns i have read so far in this thread. That's what is really close to my key parameters about BH in general: light troops based, small packs, offensive combat oriented with some nice ambushing special rules. ” I was curious where such direction could lead, and explored it through a full homebrew! Link to BH Homebrew It'd be awesome if those interested in this brainstorming thread and alternatives for BH dire…

    Hello all! Stemming from an interesting discussion on the BH subforum, I wanted to further expand on an idea posted there and propose a consistent AB with the same approach. It emphasises strong, mobile BH, is definitely melee and charge-oriented and relies on bursts of violence rather than a predictable damage output. It is meant to be an invitation to brainstorm and explore what could be done to adjust some aspects of the book, with a tangible support so anyone can try out, see if it translat…

  • Perfides elfes ! Et vas-y que ça implante des comptoirs commerciaux partout, gère un monopole maritime pépouze, a des lobbies dans tous les pays... il manquerait plus qu'ils se lancent dans le commerce des drogues à Tsouan-tan ! Heureusement il n'y a aucune chance pour que ça arrive

  • Quote from DarkSky: “Quote from Idum: “Battlescribe file for Tsuandan added to the first post! ” I feel offended. Why didn't you ask me to integrate it into the official repository? ” Ahah, sorry for that For now there may be some broken entries in the book, more feedback is really needed (I'll keep making mock battles trying to spot those but these aren't worth real games). Once it has been battle-tested a bit more and reaches an acceptable level, I'll definitely ask you - but until then I'd ra…

  • Quote from Searingash: “Ha! Are you still in SZ now? I didn't go to Shekou very often. I was almost quit the hobby during the End Time until I found T9A and come back since 2017. Thought I was the only T9A player left in SZ. It's happy to see a cathay rules dosen't mix Japan elements. I will read the book carefully later. Great work! ” I returned to France end of 2017 (and travelled East & SE Asia most of 2017), during End times I played at "D6" in Shekou and after that T9A at "Fun Atelier" in H…

  • Thank you! Don't hesitate to comment or suggest any idea, the book could absolutely (desperately :D) use new feedbacks! By the way I see you're in Futian, there is chance we met a few years back as I was in Luohu (and Futian/Shekou quite a bit for party)!

  • Comme sur le fil de discussion en anglais j'ai séparé le message original en sections, ce qui permet de mieux maintenir les liens (le 1er message était trop gros et chaque modification imposait de retravailler l'intégralité du message pour supprimer les balises et espacements parasites, la mise en forme, etc.) Et ajout du fichier BattleScribe, par contre je ne suis pas sûr que ce soit la bonne façon de partager pour ce format ! De mon côté puisque Dropbox et BattleScribe sont liés j'ai juste à p…

  • 2. Histoires de Tsouan-Tan Quote from Liou Houi-Tan (Romance de la Cité Condamnée - 912 A.S.): “Lao Tchen, ancien et respecté maître du clan Jong, observait Siao Ning. Tout en réfléchissant à sa prochaine décision, il jaugeait la femme qui lui faisait face. Enfin, impassible, il se redressa puis entreprit de quitter les lieux. Alors qu'il s'approchait de l'encadrement de la porte de Lune, il marqua une pause. Sans se retourner, il lui annonça qu'un messager lui porterait sa décision. Lao Tchen …

  • Battlescribe file for Tsuandan added to the first post! Not sure though how the "sharing" works. The way I use it is that it is in my Dropbox folder Root > Applications > BattleScribe > Data > FB T9A Homebrews, then since I have BattleScribe & Dropbox linked together it directly picks it up and I can use it in my application.

  • Hello there, quick question regarding Magic Resistance & Bound Spells. Is there any interaction? It seems intended but the rulebook wording looks obsolete to me since Bound Spells do not require casting rolls. 21.A.a.17 Magic Resistance (X) Learned Spells and Bound Spells targeting at least one enemy unit, including a model or model part inside a unit, with one or more models with Magic Resistance suffer a −X modifier to their casting roll (where X is given in brackets). This is an exception to …

  • Quote from Ghiznuk: “Tu as mis à jour ton LA en français ? Quand je clique je vois encore « version 2020 » ” En effet il est à jour - et même un peu plus depuis ce matin ! En fait j'avais tenté une approche fainéante en remplaçant le fichier source dans Drive/Dropbox (sans faire évoluer son nom) pour ne pas avoir à rééditer le premier post et remettre tous les liens à jour Enfin trêve de paresse, l'ordre a été rétabli et le livre FR est à nouveau disponible dans ses deux formats et avec un nom d…

  • Quick update following the 2021 gold balance patch - which highlighted how criminally overcosted the whirlwind catapult was while being weaker than basically all other catapults in the game! So they got a price cut + size increased to Large. Now there is a consistent pattern for artillery: traditional ones (ballistae, catapult) are cheaper, Large and long range; powder-based ones (cannon, fire arrows) have shorter range, standard size but better damage output on their preferred targets. The stat…
