    Quote from berti: “This is pure my own opinion. In MOST armies there should be no chance for a mage to become the leader (general). Either they are scholars/scientists with very little understanding of military tactics, this is what mundane military leaders are there for. Or the basic warriors will propably not trust the decisions made by a weakling who uses occult powers they can´t understand. Or magic in general is distrusted and only used to aid the armys in time of need. Of course there may …

    I agree that a rewrite could be considered since having a weapon that enable on foot character can work (like the sliver and hunter's honor show), but with a low enough price it has great potential, if you have a bsb with that and the ring of the 9th legion in an academy unit then winning a combat by a lot while having more rank than nearly everyone it's valid strategy.

    Quote from DarkSky: “@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 o…

    Quote from DarkSky: “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. ” Works for me, coupled with a discount on mastery of slaughter we could see something like mastery of slaughter, basalt infusion and …

    On the topic of the Temple Legate i think that the BsB/Adept split make sense, make it wizard apprentice as base as i think that wizard apprentice + bsb wouldn't be over the top. On the topic of Legion Legate and it's possible roles : - General on Manticore works because 18" bubble of dis 10, trigger academy bonuses for other units and has enough special items allowance to be both protected and able to carry things like the mask of the war crow to give bonuses around or some nice weapon to be an…

    I use Legion legate on manticore as general and warlock outcast, having Dis 10 within 18" plus effygy of dread to cover fear and a couple of obsdian guards units to cover panic feels pretty ok to me, there's also the beastmaster that can give dis bonus to a part of the army while giving Dis 9 within 18", so it's not like there are no alternative options. I agree that the legion legate needs a little bit more, especially now that +1" charge don't work on manticore, there's space for a special aca…

  • Units of 10 would be priced for scoring, suppressive fire and academy bonuses making it difficult to price, i use them in ranks of 5 and treat the last 5 as ablative wounds and ranks since they are basically free.

  • My spectacular tourney losses are not included because i suppose that those will find their way into the data anyway

  • Quote from flammy`: “Quote from N3okorrales: “The app doesnt seem to count sylvan longbows properly ” Hey, Could you text export your army list where the count is not good and send it to me? It would help me find the problem ” Basically every unit of sylvan sentinels adds only 1 bow to the count indipendently of his size, other units are fine as far as i've seen

    Quote from Babnik Kalenina: “and I'm still surprise the Temple Legate is not fearless She might fail her fear test in combat while rest of unit just doesn't care! Reminds me of this "external balance" aberration with the Grail character not having divine attacks.... ” If you argue that thematically it should have fearless then it should also have Frenzy and -1 Def, don't you agree ? The decision to give it all the package to not shoehorn even more the army building seem sound to me.

    We don't have a .doc version of the book, we do however the source code for it in Latex, but that's not as straightforward to change as a .doc file.

    I think that the point raise was more due to the fact that right now they have a design that becomes problematic when spammed (that's why my initial suggestion was a stricter cap), i believe that with a less rps design the problem won't occur again (or could be solved with points).

    Considering the difficult position in witch the Black Cloacks are now i have an idea on how to switch their focus, since the DE army in general does not struggle with monster how about shifting the focus of the black cloacks on other things like harrassing and AP ? Give them Defensive 5, Ap 1 on the profile, maybe the corsair charge rule, Lethal Strike at short range and remove poison, all with an adequate price reduction, in this way you get an unit that wants to get really close and sometimes …

    The fact that everyone is complaining that Battle Oracle does not combo anymore with Suppressing Volley and that now Auxiliaries are useless confirm that the move was the right one, basically the cult units were stealing the show from the academy units, maybe another way would have been to remove the Academy Banner but the intent seems clear. To me it seems also that there was too much an incentive to create a deathstar (which is against the guidelines) between the crucibile of slaughter, ring o…
