  • Quote from fadenye: “Quote from Chack: “Quote from fadenye: “Banner of the Last Storm 75 pts Cannot be taken by models that count towards Core. Parts of Terrain Features (including Open Terrain)that are within 18″ of the bearer’s model are Dangerous Terrain (2) for models making a Flying Movement. This banner seems awfully bad if I understand the rules correctly. lowe First I can't find anywhere that a unit uses Flying Movement during Pursuit, Overrun and Flee. Within 18" models have to roll Dan…

  • Quote from SkavenInAZ: “Does Holy Triumvirate and Essence of a Free Mind allow the Swarm Priest to ignore the restriction on Essence? I would think it would need to as you spend: 3 x 115 for Priests 3 x 20 for Holy Triumvirate 40 for Essence This is 445 points for 3 Apprentices so that 1 could have access to 2 paths 5 or 6 spells. Go to Adept and you've spent another 225 on 3 models with 2 wounds a piece, res 3, no saves. For an army with no master, that's a ton of points. ” RAI, Essence has a r…

  • I literally can't think of another way to deliver background, at least not without having a video creation team, which we seem to lack the reourcess for. - quote by Eldan Quote from PhearTheHam: “Quote from ferny: “Quote from trulyelse: “Quote from Eldan: “So, the question is... what do people want from us? We're trying every way we can think of to put it out, but people claim they don't see it. What else is there? ” Speaking as just myself, I have trouble concentrating on long bits of text that…

  • Quote: “ 21.A.a.11 Fly (X, Y) Units composed entirely of models with Fly may use Flying Movement during Charge Moves, Failed Charge Moves, Advance Moves, and March Moves. When a unit uses Flying Movement, substitute its models’ Advance Rate with the first value given in brackets (X), and their March Rate with the second value given in brackets (Y). A unit using Flying Movement ignores all Terrain Features and units during the Flying Movement. ” So those are the only times that a Flying Movement …

  • My question would be, does the Courtesan get all of it attacks at Area Attack, making each model take multiple hits, or only one instance? As for the original Q: I’d say area attacks and you can allocate hits on the champion model if there is no duel.

  • Quote from Mandavar: “Quote from WarX: “But current approach is much simplier then you suggest. Unit's have only rule names in profiles. 'FiER(2) if Steadfast' is not a rule name. ” "Cohort Coordination" is not a rule name for all players besides VS players either. That is exactly the point. ” However, it is one of those special rules for army identity that affects multiple units. Therefore, it is a name of a rule with its rules description in the front special rules section. Right, wrong, or in…

  • And there we have it. Now….who’s brave enough to do it?

  • Quote from Mandavar: “What prevents you from adding "Fier(2) If Steadfast" to the profile instead of hiding it behind a special name? Edit: @skipschnit I re-read your post, I think you misunderstood my point, see my comment above ” In a nutshell, it’s not the way the project decided to list out rules. By putting “FIER (2) if Steadfast”, you would have to spell that out in each unit entry that gets it. This is a rule that is applicable to more than one unit. The project does not put rules in the …

  • This is not Rules Bloat in our eyes. This is the product of a decision made long ago to un-nest rules so that each is broken out. They all are the same thing and are just spelled out instead of the old way of having one named rule that has 3-4 little rules in it. There is a difference. We chose to use mostly BrB rules for this reason so that “new” rules would be limited to just the faction identity ones. The fight in extra rank based on a situation is nothing new for Vermin. Slim vermin have the…

  • Quote from Gingersmali: “Am I right in thinking there isn’t no rule stopping characters joining experimental weapons teams? ” Hmmm. The only thing that I can see is maybe the Artillery ones, but that’s just a shooting description. It would need war machines I think to prevent it. It would be mismatched based and mishaps would be handled differently. I’ll let the Pros handle that wording issue. As for design, it’s not practical, but not in our forethought to prevent it.

    Ok, here is the inspiration for a Jezzail Mishap. youtu.be/1449kJKxlMQ

  • I don’t want to come across as arguing as internet is easy to make things seem that way. You guys have valid points. It may happen in an event that an Ogre player made his list using all Bruisers and luck of the draw puts him against VS instead of WDG. My only point is that it’s a good time to change mindsets (or maybe meta is a better word?), or to be fluid with ideas. To be fair, I just got tabled by OnG…mainly by a giant, a spider, and a unit of cav. Getting flanked hurts and with the large b…

  • Quote from Zwei: “After reading the book over and over again, i think we are probably one of the few books that doesn't got the shortest end of the stick. Of course there are things that are really really bad for us (doomblade, 5+ poison pendulum unit, TnT Jeezails, Mauss Cannons) that got even more scary then before (unnecessarily) but the main disaster of the book - the life is cheap rule - doesnt hit us as hard as other armies since we, atleast in theory, have the possibility (impact, stomps)…

  • Sons of Avalanche wounding on 2’s….just means that it might be worthwhile to take units with multiple ranks to bypass any Skorchit one use only perks. Helloooo Scratapults….Children of Umi…big protection against VS. A kitty cat in the flank negates the bonus of Spears…LoL for Trappers…that’s a lot of DTTs to take. How about a block of their own? 60 Scraplings that wound on 3’s and negate the VS steadfast all for an absolute bargain of 410 points. I was thinking that OK was going to be Okay, but …

  • Quote from Zwei: “Quote from skipschnit: “Quote from Zwei: “Sorry if i missed it, but is there any BG source how smart an average single vermin is? Non-character, non-slave. Thank you. ” Vermin are just as intelligent as the human race. You have highs and lows. It is wisdom that is sometimes lacking. As wisdom usually comes with age, the Vermin have to use written word to pass on wisdom. Therefore, it is up to a Vermin to pick it up and read it, understand it, and apply it…which sometimes never …

  • Quote from rambage: “Maybe then it should be simply clarified. It might be argued that the choice of shooting mode happens after the charge reaction declaration ” With 2 teams being Artillery, they already can’t SnS. The Reload on the other 2 prevent them from making a SnS reaction using the TnT mode. You could choose to use it after the charge declaration, but you waste it when it comes time to resolve it due to Reload.

  • Quote from rolan: “with 6'' range meassured from each model, a unit of 3 doesn't really make sense, does it? ” Yes and no. While it may not increase the range of the unit, it could increase the effectiveness range of the models. Whereas you may not get all 3d6 shots, you may be able to extend to get more coverage but less hits. It will be something that we take a look at for sure to get it right.

  • Quote from fadenye: “Quote from skipschnit: “When taken as a multiple model unit, each model will still need to use the rules for shooting that are not excluded. In this case, range is still measured from each model to their target. ” RAW it does seem like the range is measured from the unit not each model. The shooting weapon does not have a 6" range defined, but a 6" range from unit edges. If it said '6" Range, Shots D6, Lightning Attacks, Mishap (Roll for number of Shots), Reload!' then you c…
