    Quote from skipschnit: “I don't anticipate much to be changed on the Dreaded Giant other than the wording for Killer Instinct will change. ” That would definitely be a missed chance. A Dread Giant with Academy Training would be in line with the EoS one for Parent/Support Unit mechanisms and would definitely be much more attractive and a more integrated part of the book than the Dread Mask.

    Quote from Memnite: “Sorry for obvious questions but back to the game from a break, trying to figure out how things work now: 1. Manticore rider can use Destiny's Call? Its Large Cav, so doesnt have Towering Presence right 2. Scent of Blood is bascially +1 to charge a wounded target, fearless and more difficult to restrain pursuit? 3. Repeater Battery is standard height so subject to cover/no visibility over infantry and if it moves its subject to -1 ToHit 4. Hydra Cut One Off- wounds regenerate…

    Quote from subspace: “I think for me it's a matter of playstyle. I like to play character light and usually with the bare minimum of magic. ” Temple Legate General Temple Legate BSB 4 Spells, two characters with synergy and aegis 4+ included. Easy buff potential with Blades of Darag.

  • Quote from arwaker: “I agree, there should be something that bypasses Res. But we should not call it poison. Maybe the Lethal Strike could take over this part? ” Agreed, Lethal Strike fits the fluff-ness of a hit that automatically incapacitates the victim perfectly.

  • Quote from Kasocles: “There's an error with the core allowance for VC. When you create a list, the core is set to 20%, but when you start adding units it changes to 25%, which is the correct percentage. ” That's probably a side effect of the dynamic core percentages due to bloodlines. I do not think I can change that behaviour. As long as the final points are right, I'd be fine to leave it as it is.

    Quote from rolan: “Question about the DE wizards: I assume that the outcast is only available as a master because if he had less power he would not be considered worth being with the army at all, so only outcast masters get recognized and included into armies. But with the explanation of DE having the same magical prowess as all elves, why aren't there master sorceress that are not outcasts? A society that views magic as something helpful, important in battles and natural to them, what is the re…

  • Quote from arwaker: “Current implementation of Poison feels very wrong. If anything, a high resilience protects you from being affected by poison. But the rules do the opposite in mostly neglecting target resilience. I think the standard poison should simply Reroll all 1s of the To-Wound. With this mechanics, poison advantage would at least not grow with opponent Res. ” Still doesn't feel really right to me. First I think is the question what the goal of a poison rule is. Currently it is a bypas…

    @durion I am sad you reached that conclusion. Based on what experience did you come to that rather dire conclusion? I think you feedback has been well written and balanced and I can disclose that I used your very reasoning at least once when making an internal message to TT. General remark to everybody who gave feedback and is wondering if/how/when the next change happens: Just because something hasn't happened yet doesn't mean it won't ever. Be fair to the TT. They need to get data from tournam…

    Quote from Girien: “why u say quite mobile? They don't have Light Troops ” 1. Quite mobile doesn't mean "has light troops". Gorgons still move faster than lots of other things. 2. Single models don't need light troops

    Guys, feel free to compare unit by unit entries to other non-LAB books. Just don't expect any results based on such a discussion Meanwhile I did this: the-ninth-age.com/community/ga…3a1b8f8cb4f62329ece4b431f

  • As DE ACS I felt pressured to once in a while actually paint a Dread Elf. So here is the most overpowered model of the Alpha 2 book… a totally wrecker… Dread Prince on Chariot: the-ninth-age.com/community/ga…3a1b8f8cb4f62329ece4b431fthe-ninth-age.com/community/ga…3a1b8f8cb4f62329ece4b431fthe-ninth-age.com/community/ga…3a1b8f8cb4f62329ece4b431fthe-ninth-age.com/community/ga…3a1b8f8cb4f62329ece4b431f

    @Khadath Many things are possible. The more pressing questions would be: - What does this fix/improve the issue? - Are there other changes doing a better job at fixing/improving the issue - Is this having the intended effect? - Does this change properly reflect the army design? - [Background] Can this change make sense "in world"? So for this suggestion, it has the following "properties": - It only improves the Legion Legate, if you have Obsidian Guard and he is in the unit (basically this means…

    @Everybody: Thank you very much for providing feedback on the Legion Legate and what you see as missing/lacking. I think you provided really good feedback! Thank you for being a great community. To summarize I heard the following general ideas (not necessarily in order to frequency or importance): - General is much more desirable than BSB (i.e. you noticed an internal balance problem) - LL BSB may not be fixable with points, because TL offers a much more all around package on an important functi…

    Quote from ferda: “Even now, while LL is not rly strong, i prefer him over prince due dis 10 and the ring which makes spears with rending banner elite-infantry-ish. How about giving LL the special rule Will of the Senate? ” I may be understanding your reasoning wrongly, but this sounds like: For general Legion Legate is better than Dread Prince. Let's give Legion Legate another special rule only applicable for a general. Isn't that counter-productive for internal balance? Additionally it makes t…

    What would you guys think of going the route of the EoS Marhal for the Legion Legate? Making BSB option cheaper or even free? Thinking is: Many of you posted feedback, that LL as general is okay, but lacking as BSB. So it seems we have an imbalance between those two options. The easiest points tweak on this one is the cost of the BSB upgrade.

    Quote from Girien: “"The unit haves (+1Adv) when rolling the charging roll and another academy unit is at 8"" ” If you have two Academy units besides each other, both charging different (or the same target) and a successful charge will move one of the both more than 8" away, then the second doesn't have the bonus anymore (because the first one is too far away, when you roll for the charge).

    Quote from Ehakir: “Then onto your questions, sure, I'll bite: - With the current item limitations, fun character builds would be the character builds as prescribed by the armybook. Not a lot of creativity here then, so... Also, with the academy trained nerfed on the Legion legate, I don't see a reason anymore to field this guy over a DP/Beastmaster on any mount? - Nope, with the limited flexibility and limited advantages over other choices it's mostly just obvious choices you'd go for.
