    Quote from Folomo: “If the Lady considers how the knights behave and treat the peasants as important, the knights WILL follow this mandate and treat peasants in much better way. ” IMO we have arguments that nobles act kind and good to peasants even without chivalry. When battle is over these peasants need to be alive and take care of nobles estate, they are essentially your tax payers and you don't want to see them die in droves. Sometimes it is even better for them to run away after they have s…

    Quote from Folomo: “Knights defending the weak was a pretty iconic part of the medieval romanticization. ” I believe that was indeed a romanticization by our part (that happens to most of history anyway). In reality nobles scoffed at lowborns. There is a point that in a fantasy setting this romanticization needs to be exaggerated and chivalry actually be real and not just something to make a mock off. IMO we need to allow for both representations to cater to both players that want army historica…

    Quote from jimmygrill: “I read @Krokz „suck“ statement as meaning „they have very low stats“, not as „the unit will be useless“. I would be very surprised otherwise, because that wouldn‘t make sense coming from one of the designers... ” Well, yes. VS Slaves suck, Common Goblins suck, SA Skinks suck, OK Scraplings suck etc. If you go ask their players they will mostly confirm it, like KoE player will confirm Core Peasants suck. KoE Core Peasants suck in a way that when they are dying other parts …

    Quote from Zwei: “They never had a role to fulfill, they never had any spot. ” You missed my point: their role is to suck. This is how Knights maintain their superiority. It is a contrast made in the book as even in historical texts one Infantry levy was worth 1 cavalry knight soldier, with them sucking we represent how good the Knight on Horse is. Quote from Zwei: “Every other army managed to do something valuable with their insignificant units. Just we cant? ” I think we will, we are working o…

    Well, Core Peasants by guidelines will suck. There are plenty of Core sucky units in other army books that are never taken, but are in the army books to satisfy background and convey a story. In the case of Core Peasants it is feudalism flavor. But we are talking about Core peasants, there are also Peasant Crusaders under Special which do not suck, so models are not necessarily invalidated. BTW anyone who knows any history can tell you how Peasant Crusade failed at Constantinople, it was hilario…

  • It is not intended that all summoning choices are competitive or can be put to good use. You have access to all for simplicity's sake, do what you can with it.

    Quote from LordNelson: “Is it intended or a side-effect of the rules as written that you cannot drop a Hope Harvester into a unit (that you summon simultaneously)? Or can you make two summons happen simultaneously? I guess you can join the harvester to another daemon unit in the next turn, but that's costing a lot of time + is a move that gives your shooting a penalty. Does this make the War Platform rule that it has more or less useless? I'd be curious to hear more thoughts on this. ” Rules was…

    Possessed were designed as a more glass cannon unit. They can take Chitinous Scales which brings them to 4+ armor save. Shield option would be priced to get them from 4+ to 3+ armor and Parry (because prices are always done on best combination) and so Shield option would be 2 points per model, meaning you'd get less models for same price, meaning every model you would loose from shooting would perceptually cripple you more. Short story: everything is priced, Shield would not give your more chanc…

  • Lust Dragon for sure.

  • If we price Dragon down 100 points everyone will take it. Will then the concept work? Rhetorical question of what drives model usage.

  • Quote from Happy Aspid: “You forget about nerfed flying stats. In addition to being suspectible to panic. I am not even talking about no access to Trophy Rack on sorcerer - so no rerolls of any kind outside of Battlefever Allowed. ” Did not forget, it is just not relevant. Concept of Meeting of Minds is to make the Dragons special, different to each other. What you are speaking of is power level which is a totally different discussion. Concept of WDG is that mounts do not outshine the riders, wh…

  • Easy fix. Turn stats to normal Dragon (as in Adv6, March12) and make a Special rule that gives it +2 Adv, +4 March.

    Quote from nobeernoplaying: “Hello, is it possible to summon daemons twice? For example: I have a Titanslayer Chariot, summon it and it dies. Is it possible to summon it again? ” No. Please let us know which rules text is ambiguous in this way so we can fix it.

  • If I'd be a nitpicky troll I'd say Asklander Giant can join any unit as "Asklanders" is the name of the army book. All are Asklanders, they just use different names.

    I nominate the old Galrauch. It's suppose to be a double headed dragon, it became a stickman dragon. Galrauch_M01.jpg It is so ugly an unwieldy (can't stand, can't base to base) I never saw it on the table in an actual game. You'd rather put up a proxy.

    Quote from Sidereo: “Quote from Krokz: “So DL or UD or Orcs payed him to locate Cultists inside their lands. ” But what are the lands of the DL? ” Cultists fighting a DL army is the same as Asklanders fighting WDG or Hobgoblins fighting ID. It has to be a civil war thingy or revange or dissobediance lesson. You need some tricky imagination to pull it off

    Quote from Aleph Null: “I have trouble imagining any narrative by which an inquisitor could be hiding amongst regular DL or UD or pretending to be an orc. ” Inquisitor can be a mercenary that works for anyone with deep enough pockets. So DL or UD or Orcs payed him to locate Cultists inside their lands. Cultist have deep (lawful evil) plots and I can easily see Cult Leader be someone using 'useful idiots' and conspiring against other Cult Leaders or even Daemons themselves. One aspiring Cultist L…
