  • Ahh... I am not sure if the IG have just touched onto the hill to see over it. I was hoping a flee would cause a failed charge or a failed redirect from the Shabtis, and then the IG can potentially counter-charge the Shabtis. But yeah none of that works if the IG can't see wherever the Shabtis end up ofc.

  • Yeah it would not affect me personally at all - in fact it would be great to know now before I make more models without Shields But yeah, just technially speaking it would be "model invalidation" to remove the 'Spear only' option from Orcs, even though I think it would be a good thing for the game overall.

  • Quote from Villon: “And after wi will have an "easy" charge with IG against shabtis probably? ” Yeah I think you're gonna have to rely on some hot rolling from this position now, especially with the IG! But those boys are pretty tough, they might be able to do it! (also, hopefully the UD team aren't listening to this... lol )

  • Right well.. we definitely need to consider fleeing that charge with the Electoral Cav imo now Villon! They might be an inch or two closer than we'd like... making it a big risk. BUT allowing them to get frontal charged by the Shabtis prob means they are taking a Break test on 6 or less... so I would take my chances with a Flee right now (with potential Rally on an 8!).

  • Quote from Ivar K: “Remy, would you pass some tea, please... ” But remember it's brandy tea for maximum strategic power... Nendoroid-Yang-Wen-li-Legend-of-the-Galactic-Heroes-Die-Neue-These-10.jpg This battle is killing me though, but very entertaining. EoS definitely still has a chance I think, I like the movement of the Cavalry and Imperial Guard. Nice plan Commander Villon! It's risky but EoS is going to have to take some risks now!

  • Quote from The Matt: “Spear & shield.... 2pts ” The minor issue is if 'Spear only' has been the best option for so long (I imagine it always has been in T9A ?) that many people have modelled Orcs and Feral Orcs with Spears and no Shields? I dunno though. I've started to make some Spear only guys for T9A but I could easily adapt (T9A is the only system I'm ever likely to play that would care about this detail too!)... there's very few Orc miniatures out there that come with Spear only of course t…

  • Quote from Ivar K: “Situation looks pretty bad. ” ... * Advisor Remy / Yang sips more tea * 190px-Yang_in_Iserlohn_799_UC.jpg But hey, it's never over until it's over!

  • Quote from Hal: “I’m guessing there’s already a metric for this. Probably includes (but not limited to) viscosity, coverage, pigment, price... ” Yeah this is where I'd be a bit lacking as I am far from knowledgeable enough to go into those kinds of details that a 'professional' paint reviewer or artist may be able to. But I can tell when one paint gives a better coverage than another for example, or is thicker or more watery, or gives a chalky finish. Price is actually one I'd shy away from sinc…

  • Yeah I have a few ideas... but I'm limited by my own knowledge and experience too - of both paints and available ways to do this. I could see a well designed free wordpress site working out ok to organise this kind of info for example (allows multiple editors, and comments from anyone etc).. but then it isn't as "visible" in today's social media dominated internet. That would remove it from being a "T9A site" thing though, for good and bad of that. I'm still half expecting someone to tell me it'…

  • Thank you! I was thinking if this just dies on the forum I won't bother...! So thanks for taking an interest! It would definitely be a big undertaking, something to do slowly over a long period of time kinda thing. And needs a bunch of people involved to make it really work too. Quote from Hal: “the quality varies from colour to colour. ” ^ yeah that is a great example of exactly the sort of "reviews per colour" I would love to know about Army Painter paints myself as I only own a couple and I w…

  • I see Imperial Advisor Remy has been summarily ignored... Ah well, I will just sit back and sip my brandy tea and remember what happens... aa7f65757be0db5dfaf57279ad4ce929398d01bd_hq.gif (hoping someone here gets this reference! )

  • Spear & Shield feels like a huge systemic flaw that it isn't the prime 'defensive' option tbh! But yeah in the absense of a v3, the best thing to do would be points changes. It was exactly what I raised as my top 3 things tbh. As it SUPER affects those who like to model things correctly. It's especially bad on Feral Orcs too.

  • Yeah the Shabtis and Chariots are great targets for Handgunner shooting... I mean, the whole UD list would be great to shoot (even that Hierarch!) but I think that's a great deployment by RH to take advantage of the terrain and having first turn... so it's hard to easily counter deploy I think. EoS Patrol can be a weird one that it likes getting to deploy and first turn more than most Patrols in EoW I think, because it has one of the best ranged damage potentials... but we're going 2nd so that's…

  • This is an idea that popped into my head a week ago or so and it won't go away so I thought I'd start a thread here to discuss ideas with T9A folks. When I got back into miniature painting a few years back, before I knew much about T9A even (beyond, heard about it, anyway) I had to re-invest in a whole collection of paints again (thanks to crappy GW pots meaning all my old paints had dried out, yet my REALLY old paints in better pots were still fine... I digress, although as you will see, this i…

  • Quoted you in the v3 suggestions thread: T9A Version 3 Rules Suggestions (long term future)

  • Special & Armour Save redesign idea: Special and Armoursave Redesign

  • If I'm using the Gallery for this I always tend to drill down for a category of models I am looking for, eg: Goblin King: the-ninth-age.com/community/ga…age-list/281-goblin-king/ Where you don't usually see anything that isn't models tagged with that. Are you doing something different to me maybe?

  • I watched it now, and it was extremely entertaining! Also super fast play, I reckon they would have been done in about an hour if they wanted to be. I won't give spoilers but well done all involved, including that cameo appearance by ... someone...! wtf. I was so confused I had to check if my wine had been spiked when that happened. Also I was genuinely impressed by the TTS skills of @LostCause and @Spacegoblin ! They did a MUCH better job than me playing via TTS I think I'm still the reset the …

  • Quote from arwaker: “When "closing the door" after a successful charge, you rotate the unit with fewer ranks instead of always the attacker. ” This thread was never really intended for discussion, but I have to say how much I'd love a rule like this. Like WAPs unit formation restrictions, it's a simple rules change that allows you to keep a very similar "style" of game yet can sweep away so many 'gamey' tricks that definitely feel wrong to anyone not deeply ingrained in this ruleset. This would …

  • Hehe yeah don't worry, I understand the 'ease of use' of failbook for sure, but it really really pains me how much stuff just gets lost to the void on there. At least on twitter I see everything since there's no damn algorithm deciding what I see... (well there is, but it is easily disabled on twitter, probably the best thing about twitter!). Quote from collectinggreen: “although it basically defeats the purpose of my blog ” Haha, I honestly don't think so at all For one you cover things that ar…
