    Quote from Exalted Champion: “People want the outcast to be the army general mostly because of power reasons, not because of fluff reasons. Because they want to spare a third character, while you can have 2 wizards, 6 spells, a BSB and a general combined in only 2 characters. ” Quote from Exalted Champion: “Try to take a view that is not biased. Would you like to play against an army, that can fit all possibilities the character section offers in around only 700 points range and just 2 character…

    Quote from Konrad von Richtmark: “Reductio ad absurdum is a logically valid form of proof. If a particular premise leads to an absurd conclusion, it proves that the premise is false. QED. ” It's only a valid form of proof if you can deconstruct an opponent's ideas to its fundamental tenets and show that this would lead to absurdity or contradiction - space marines with bananas stuffed in their ears is neither of those, and arguably falls into the logical fallacy arm of reductio ad ridiculum by c…

    Quote from Kriegschmidt: “One disagreement: you say that it's not a given that she'll miscast more often because we could use fewer dice per spell and risk not casting them successfully. Is that, in practical terms, a real suggestion? If the only way to avoid the extra risk of miscast is to make her less likely to successfully cast spells than a cheaper Master without Irresistible Will... that just proves that she needs rethinking or making significantly cheaper. ” I see what you’re saying, I gu…

    Hmmm, as currently disappointed as I am in the Warlock Outcast due to it having the 'Not a Leader' rule, I thought I'd repost an updated version of something I wrote a while ago when the (then) new Irresistible Will was being called ridiculously OP. Sorry for the wall of text, I promise to summarise it all below with reference to some above points (in blue for people to find easier). - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Basic Assumptions: - My general goal (extenuating circumstances not…

    Quote from Nemeroth: “I understand your frustration but that’s not how it works. I’m just trying to save people wasting time brainstorming solutions that aren’t going to happen. I don’t have to take the time to do that I could just not bother. No matter how much people rail against it, background is a core feature of the game and the reality of it the game is background driven. The setting must make sense, I’ve explained why WOs cannot command armies, arbitrary get-out clauses are not how we do …

    I totally agree with @Slayer Zabojcow - the issue isn’t with our elite infantry, it’s with infantry in total. Slightly off-topic for this thread, but I really think it’s time the RT considers amending a few ‘major issues’ in the rule book to push the intended game more towards infantry blocks. If there is an adamant ‘we can’t change it cause it’s Gold’ mentality to even small minor changes, then I’m afraid the second part of @Slayer Zabojcows comment will be true - infantry will be made powerful…

    Quote from echoCTRL: “Sorry if I wasn't clear. The world of the Ninth Age follows rules and has natural laws. Those natural laws apply to magic and creatures, otherwise our stories would not have any consistancy. If we stopped following what was decided as part of the natural world for 9th Age we would just be rewriting those rules with every new book. It would've a world where players ask, "Why doesn't DE have ability X?" The answer would be, "Because Army A thought of it and your Task Team did…

  • LOOOOVE that nomarch model, is it from the kickstarter?

  • 9.5, 10.7, 9.8 - total average so far of 10 Book perfectly balanced, leave everything as is and just change 'alpha' on PDF to 'gold' k thx bai

  • Thanks guys for the comments, I'm looking forward to being able to show you a properly completed army! @Promet glad you enjoy the prints, it's definitely something new to me but I'm enjoying learning about it as I go! @Marcos24 no need to feel like you're hijacking anything, given the 3D models are your design! @Hillbilly Carl glad you enjoy them, it's always been an idea in the back of my head and I can't wait to make it a reality! ---------------------------------------------------------------…

  • @Morrigan I literally had one of those models up until about a month ago, when my brother asked for it! I'll have to see if he's built it yet or not... Amazing work, keep it up!

  • Loving that swamp varkolak! Reminds me a lot of the Mierce minis (can't remember the exact names) - though yours is far more unique Keep up the good looking and smelling work!

  • That forest dragon

  • Seriously good work that you pump out, love the skellies!

  • I found another 2 cents in my pocket, so I thought I'd add a little more to my initial thoughts but without editing the original as I think this might be long winded too... sorry! (please don't kill me @KiRaHyuU) Again, I'll somewhat refrain from looking at every item and unit and focus more on some of the themes/ideas that I find problematic, and then round if off with what I really like as well for those positive vibes Characters, part deux... I realised last time that a lot of my breath was u…

  • Ok, I promise the next update will actually have something more than 3D printed models... I just can't help how excited I am playing with this new toy! Thanks again go to @Marcos24 for the STL files - he created them all except the large wendigo head at the top, which is a Raging Heroes model. Next step is to start attaching them to the minis... 001(1).jpg

    That’s cheating @echoCTRL, you know the answers!!

  • My 2 cents worth... Characters I think some of the problems we're seeing with some entries are a function of the lack of diversity in some of the character units. Temple Legates are being used in almost every list, and more often than not as the BSB option. The issue is, without access to a Wizard Master that can be a General, you're sort of forced into this path more often than not. Hear me out... if you want a decent magic phase, you will likely need a combination of Master + Adept, 2x Adept +…

  • Quote from Malda: “my opinion is, that it is a good thing, to have specialized entries with pros and cons ” This is actually something we try to do during design - it's actually good to have units which excel in some areas and have drawbacks in others. That doesn't make an army RPS, it's just design as intended. What we don't want though is too many things pushing an army into a playstyle that means it will be very RPS. Of course, we can't stop people from trying to design lists that will in-and…
