  • Thanks for the strong reception! I love the guidelines and ideas everyone is providing. Rixi and I have decided a good way to involve as many people as possible, and to be as productive as possible, is to have focused discussion about a specific category for a few days and then move onto the next category. The past few days we have seen a lot of discussion on core. Two tools we have readily available are mixed units and totems. You all gave some great suggestions. What are peoples thoughts on us…

  • As per my post on Monday evening, here is the linked thread, Community SA Homebrew. Again, this isn’t a SA ACS homebrew, it’s just MountainBuns doing MountainBuns things. There are a few polls there to get us kicked off before the weekend.

  • How many changes (in number)?

  • How involved is community in making decisions?

  • Magnitude of changes

  • Hello all you cold bloods! For those only now hearing about this, I made a poll asking what people’s opinions were on making a community derived homebrew in our three things thread and I received a lot of responses with a good chunk of people saying yes. The main idea is to use a variety of community input to create an interesting homebrew. This is really a project I’ve been thinking about for a few months now and the opportunity presented itself quite readily after the last update. I am always …

    Quote from Girien: “Quote from Minidudul: “Thankfully the ring is limited to the Legion Legate ! ” So better change his name to "Frodo the Ring Carrier" ” Thank goodness we rode the SE eagles to Mordor. One of us could have died!!

  • I am happy you’re excited @Khadath! I will set up another thread pretty soon here with some polls asking about preferences on magnitude of changes and methodology so it resonates with as many as possible. I hope to get something finished in 3-4 weeks given the amount of time I have to work on it. Yeah, so the second poll did have that 4th answer of “I don’t agree with the premise of the question” and I put that there because there may be differences in opinion on how much changes to unused entri…

  • Thanks everyone for the responses to the two polls I set up. It seems there is a moderate interest in a homebrew with a community approach. I will be thinking about a good way to involve as many members as possible. If you do have any ideas about a methodology that sounds good to you, pm me! I will set up a different thread for any future developments on that. Regarding the second poll, I am thankful you all have responded. While the next scheduled patch for SA will happen next winter, I am hope…

    What about as a general though @ferda. I have especially liked her with seal of the republic, lacerating touch, and ring of the 9th legion in a unit of judicators with academy training. It’s awesome 6 battlefocus s5 ap3 attacks with a 1+ save possibly on top of increasing judicators damage output by 20%-25%. Plus fear on gw and Discipline 10 to boot! Pretty sweet deal! Sorry for the obnoxious positivity regarding the characters. They are my favorite part of the book!

    No, I mean have you played games without the temple legate? You might think it’s poor design, but there are alternatives. Have you been able to try those alternatives? Sorry I didn’t mean to say “don’t take it” that’s not what I meant, I meant have you tried not taking temple legate and using alternatives? Beastmaster is a pseudo bsb in monster mash while og are really good for the role too in almost any list since we mostly just need a bsb for panic tests anyways.

    I know this is a dumb question, but have you tried not using temple legate? There’s plenty of character set ups that are perfectly reasonable. While the legion legate bsb is lackluster compared to temple legate, have you thought about our guards made of obsidian? What about using OG as a replacement for bsb? Deploy those boys 10 wide, with a relentless bannerand you’ve got yourself a 20” by 13” bsb/scoring dart.

  • Poll 2. Magnitude of changes tolerance

  • Homebrew Poll 1.

  • Hello fellow cold-bloods! Today I have two polls. Taking the time to answer these would be wonderful! The first is a question about a community homebrew I’ve been thinking about. I loved all the entries you all submitted in this thread and wanted to pay that appreciation forward to you in the form of a homebrew with point changes deriving from the many suggestions we saw in this thread. I just got the LaTeX file The idea would be to keep the same spirit and go for non design changes. I am curiou…

    Here is a painting thread recently started by @deuf! I think it is pretty remarkable! Please go visit! Duef’s SA Painting Thread

  • Stunning!! I will link this thread to the SA Painting Hub.!! Well done!

  • From a design perspective, I see this as a take max or take none. To me the concept seems like it would work better as a unique multi model character entry instead of a single model character entry? Idea being same rules that currently exist with 3 models minimum instead of solo. DE LAB had a similar concept that had to be limited in mobility on the turn it deployed as to avoid a model that can instantly appear in a unit to chaff on the same turn it appears. I would also suggest similar limitati…

  • This is me guessing, but from the look of it the academy core units are in larger sizes probably to help with pricing in the academy rule and suppressing fire. I would venture this move from 10->15 on auxiliaries was a design choice to help make pricing in easier, as well as limit the number of units we can possibly take in raiders.
