    @Eisenheinrich If I may, one more: - If a caster is joined to a unit with Blades of Darag and casts the curse, does it trigger the +1 Str bonus?

    Quote from Ehakir: “Cool spell, my question would be if you'd be able to use it on every agility step in combat or not. Say, an enemy unit hits at agi 5, does 1 wound, you trigger the spell with 2 veil tokens to do 2D3+2 hits back The same enemy unit hits at agi 3, does 2 more wounds, can you trigger the spell again? Twice? ” Yes, you can trigger it separetly for each agility step. I saw that discussed and confirmed internally. This is intented that way. Quote from Gerfaks: “How it woks if multi…

    It seems the new spell has quite a few questions around how it actually works. I will try to get a short summary or an FAQ from TT or Rules Clarity Team to give a little bit more insight. In the meantime please continue to discuss and ask questions around how it works so I can forward it.

    Quote from Herminard: “Am I correct in reading that if 3 friendly woundpools are separately suffering Health Point losses and I have 3-6 veil tokens available, then I may proc the spell 3 times? ” I think so, but then again, I am not @Eisenheinrich so I better summon him to answer. I am quite certain however, that you can have a maximum of four token after your magic phase (three left over and one from hereditary (maybe one additional from Evo?))

  • Quote from Eldan: “So, the question is... what do people want from us? ” My guess would be: They want background in the army books (aka full LABs). For my community (for which I am the only active forum member), most people don't understand our background at all, they just read the army books. So the following I explained (and for many of them it was the first time they heard that): - Avras is our equivalent of the former Roman Empire and it fell in the 4th age to the Vermin - The VS employs Rom…

    Quote from Ilderoth: “I need some clarification here. ” Since the spell is a "one turn" spell, the token would vanish after the spell effect ends. It is worded that way to behave like a "normal veil token".

    Quote from Boo_619: “A hero level character has lower stats than a similar choice in the book and almost always includes a lower access to magic equipment. ” So Beastmaster is hero and Legion Legate is lord, because Legate has more Dis, more Off, more Def? What about the EoS Marshal? And the WDG Exalted Herald is below Hero, because 0 points for magic equipment? See how easy it is to poke holes into the "rules" to identify them? The distinction makes sense and is present in WHFB. Firstmost it do…

They have also been in liason with our gods and divined what will happen, if we curse our enemies to suffer the wrath of the phantom queen should they claim Daeb blood.

    Quote from Wesser: “Quote from DarkSky: “Quote from Kriegschmidt: “Is there some way then to actually represent the nobility aspect across the associated units? ” There are quite a few ways to do this, but most of them are "null rules" in terms of gameplay. Nobility is by intention not a major theme with special rules and effect on the gameplay, like Academy and Beast Tamers are. ” Isn't nobility exactly the reason Dread Knights and Raptor Chariots are DI9? ” I was under the impression that "hav…

    Quote from Kriegschmidt: “Is there some way then to actually represent the nobility aspect across the associated units? ” There are quite a few ways to do this, but most of them are "null rules" in terms of gameplay. Nobility is by intention not a major theme with special rules and effect on the gameplay, like Academy and Beast Tamers are. Keep in mind, that the book would work just as well without any unit being nobility, if the background would be different. It is an inter-woven aspect between…

    Quote from setrius: “Is it too much to add the Academy Training rule in Raptor Chariots? ” Short: Yes. Too much. Long: You didn't even mention why you think the Raptor Chariots need a buff. The TT doesn't hand out special rules like candy. More important though: Academy Training is specifically reserved for troops that went through the Academy. Raptor Chariots are ridden by nobility. The nobility doesn't go through classic Academy Training, but is "home schooled". So they can never have Academy …

    Quote from Gerfaks: “lord level character. ” Such a thing doesn't exist in T9A: Fantasy Battles and I think some of the "disconnects" (e.g. "Beastmaster is a Lord level characters and should have Off/Def 6 because of it") you are experiencing are due to you still searching for Hero/Lord level distinctions, when there are none. Quote from Gerfaks: “It's default for core elves. Special elven warriors have Off/Deff 5 as default ” Not true. Warlock Acolytes, Black Cloaks, Shadow Riders, Beast Handle…

    Hey @Gerfaks I can only describe it as it is. If you don't agree with the decisions made, I am in no position to change them. Quote from Gerfaks: “Perhaps they need some rule to represent their "home training". ” They do: Dread Knights have Dis 9, Att 2, Off 5, Def 5, Str 4 and Ap 1 and Agi 6. I would say that is quite some meaningful difference to the "standard" Dread Elf solider. Many people critisize the project for sticking too many needles special rules onto units, so I think this is quite …

    Quote from Gerfaks: “But do Dathen nobility have any common mechanics to support their theme? ” They are common in the following ways: - They are not part of the usual Academy. More like "home trained". This is why the do not use Spears or Repeater Crossbows, but have access to costly weapons like Great Weapons and Halberds. - They can afford the very expensive and dangerous Daeb Raptors Quote from Gerfaks: “Gorgons, Warlock Outcast and Warlock Acolytes do not belong to any of themes? ” The most…

    Quote from Gerfaks: “Quote from arwaker: “Would make sense if they were somehow related to Beast or Temple faction. But I have the impression they are not. ” But DE have only 3 factions: academy, beast and temple. They are not from academy so they should have connection with one of other two. ” Sorry, but this is "wrong" (or misleading) on multiple levels. Yes, there are major themes in the DE LAB: Academy and Beast Handlers/Tamers. Yes, there are minor themes in the DE LAB: Cults/Temples, Raide…

  • Quote from Borneo: “but my best gamer mate lives and breathes skaven ” I don't know your mate, but maybe the problem is, that our new LAB is not Skaven, but Vermin Swarm. For obvious reasons, we cannot produce a Skaven book. But if it is really just the names of the units: Why does your mate care? I also dislike the names of some DE units very much. Doesn't mean my models cannot be used. So I guess it isn't just the names of the units? Maybe you can elaborate a little bit more?

    Quote from AlWeeks: “From a background point of view they are sort of a Armed Police force right, with links to the temples? ” From what I know, this is wrong. I don't know any part of background that would link the Judicators to the cults/temples. So, if you would want to merge the unit with Obsidian Guard, you will basically have to decide, what the "baseline" of the new unit is. Since we most certainly will want to keep the flavour of the Obsidian Guard, it would make little sense to remove t…
