  • Quote from Gwydion: “Just an idea regarding our hereditary spell: I really like the fear causing theme and the corresponding synergies in our book. Maybe we could expand on this theme a bit. I know that every unit and his mother are fearless nowadays, but hey... Just like: Target unit causes fear. If the target causes fear already it causes terror instead. If an enemy unit targets this unit it suffers d3 St4 Ap2 hits or something like that. The boosted version does that in a 12" bubble. You get …

    Quote from youngseward: “I reckon new book is hands down better to play against than old DE. And that’s as a BH player, which is an army that really suffers from a lot of the changes. ” Really I'd love your insight into this. perhaps not in bobo's spot, unless he doesnt mind.

    Ohh and the question is forgot to ask before: Is the new book more fun to play and more importantly is it more fun for the opponent?

    Quote from Bobo: “I am recording a Dread Elf brainstorming session with @Arthur in a few hours, does anyone have any specific questions or topics they want covered? ” Characters, is bsb just to hard to justify? Is the new altar still a crutch? Are the new bolt throwers better or worse? Is the best DE list still one that minimises res 3 bodies? Do you like the new assassins and if so what would need to change to actually field them Is DE to soft to ranged damage, from both a tournament and casual…

  • Quote from youngseward: “I think the rightly kitted out brotherhood counts would walk through this army if Ak was helming them. ” hmm interesting. I feel like the bombardiers can deal with vamp knights ok. new pyro attribute is better in this match up. lethal strike mercs are super dangerous as is the mammoth hunter. Whilst I dont see it as an easy match up, I think you have the tools for it. But yeah i can see greater demons being a huge issue, as they also get access to ranged damage that you …

  • Quote from youngseward: “Very similar to what I was running in 2019 and having very satisfactory results with, it seems to give me a wealth of options in every game. I think it lacks a bit and will struggle against finely tuned, top lists, but for 90% of games it should give me a good shout. ” I dunno, seems pretty scary to me. Guess its up to whether the mammoth hunter adds enough extra value versus a regular rock auroch. What match up do you think is bad for you?

  • Quote from VampsinMD: “they can't break steadfast ” They also should never fight units with steadfast. Mass bodies also means mass attacks, which is their bane. They are the best against low volume high quality attacks. The fact they are ap10 and flaming is largely irrelevant to me.

  • Quote from SmithF: “I'll do a small write-up once WTC is over, if that interests anyone! ” Yes please will be very interested to see if you get a single game where you can kill more than 1000 points of the enemy. Quote from VampsinMD: “its true, but my main point is that the "to hit" roll is their biggest weakness on offense. ” yes they dont work great as a death star, but i find they basically dont need magic support. and are often to far away for magic anyway.

  • 100% get a monochrome screen. The size isnt that important. on my mini 4k im still printing at 0.03mm as it looks fantastic and going any smaller makes the prints take a really long time. (And I really can't tell the difference. Perhaps a model with lots of thin hair strands or something but those wispy bits are going to break off in 2 seconds anyway :P) For me getting the resin right is more important and curing times. if you over cure your models can become very brittle. and no matter how good…

  • Quote from Sir_Sully: “I'm not sure what additional points of interest you mean for the objectives either. Maybe if you gave some examples I'd understand what you mean? ” So for example Spoils of war. there is 3 targets of interest. IMO this would be more interesting with like 12. Perhaps 6 to start with, then another 6 half way through as you say. The hidden aspect is interesting but i would want enough points that you cant just get rng'd to much.

    Quote from Cam: “I'd rather have the judicators personally as you can take more shots before you lose effectiveness. Otherwise I'd just go MSU when taking knights. ” But then again you are going to take more rounds of shooting cause infantry and way slower. the knights are more easily able to move about to flanks, forcing the shooters to have to move suffering penalties, additionally the extra charge range can also more easily prevent stand and shot reactions. But its also more rps/dice dependan…

  • Quote from Hombre de Mundo: “For maximum detail, you'll want the smallest possible 4K screen, though that of course limits the build volume the smaller you go. ” As some one with the phrozen sonic mini 4k. I recon go the bigger form factor printers. yes you lose a bit of detail, but it makes printing monsters way easier. And they are the best things to print. making 100 skeletons is tricky cause you probably only have 1 or tops 2 poses from the designer. So it makes a large unit look to similar …

  • well the bantha is found on a desert planet as opposed to the referenced Tauntaun. So the reference isn't up to code

  • Quote from Sir_Sully: “That keeps players "honest" as you don't know what the main objective is until half way through. ” Its also not a very tactical game if you dont know what your trying to do. I would rather just have more points of interest in the objectives.

    Quote from youngseward: “Has anyone tried a few units of MSU longhorns not in ambush? I just finished a 3k event (reports to come in my army blog) and loved them. Ability to flee, swiftstride to flank/rear, decent output, good scaling with shamanism, more resistant to ranged damage than centaurs/Minotaurs. ” I think they are awesome as ambushers, but I guess after those 2 units I could see a few 10 man units would also be cool. Would probably take halberds then so that striking at initiative. So…

    Check this out: Digital - VC printable miniatures & Terrain Note that this is an editable document by anyone, so please as you find stuff add it in there so others can also benefit. Secondly I have just got into 3d printing and have been getting some stuff. I have not yet put it all into the wiki just yet but there is heaps of stuff out there. This is the rough list of what I have found so far: Highlands miniatures - barrow guard, skeletons, vamp knights Artisan Guild - vampire characters Crosse…

  • Quote from Traumdieb: “a proper question is why not +2 to ban suffices. ” So that is what it was in the old book. This new rule is arguably equivalent in power. With no +1 to cast De player cant low dice spells, must over dice. If over dicing means at most 3 different spell attempts, likely only 2 spells. So if you only have enough dice to stop 1 of his spells you can through all at the important spell in this situation the -3 to dispel has minimal impact. With evo it is stronger as lower castin…

  • Quote from Slayer Zabojcow: “So HBE got 1st turn, DE unit is on the open field and in range of HBE archers so they even don't have to move to get in range to shot them and they are positioned on ideal distance of 30" so Auxiliaries don't shoot after their first turn and DE unit don't use any of their melee rules that they should pay for and they still win against HBE shooting unit with 1/3 of auxiliaries left ? That's what we call balance! ” Sure in this totally arbitrary sandboxed fight. But a …

    Quote from da_griech: “I am not sure though and think it could be an interesting topic to discuss. ” Absolutely, the thing is that on a horse you can still join infantry. Yes hits can be distributed, but unless it's a cannon that means only 1 hit is on your prince, which is not to threatening. And on top of all that you get +2 armour. I really think that rangers boots only works for characters who have no defence and must rely on hiding in the unit. Wizards or bsb's etc. Any one that wants to se…
