  • (not commenting in staff role; this is just my personal understanding, I have not and never have been a member of the background team) My understanding is something like this: The duality of the path represents the duality of the t9a universe: there is chaos and cosmos. Sort of "order and chaos", or "creator and destroyer". Only beings that study both cosmos and chaos, and want to keep them in balance, can use cosmology magic. The cuatl are very strongly on the "order/cosmos" side of things, the…

    (not commenting in staff role) Quote from Crazydwarf: “But i Will admit, after playing them for some games, that the MR 2, is quite decent, tho a double edge sword.. ” I just wanted to say that I have a lot of respect for people trying units, changing their opinions (even if only by a small amount) and being prepared to say so. Kudos Edit: Anyone who read my ID blog during my exploits with the slim book will know that I was also someone who initially wrote the slim book blunderbusses off on pape…

  • @Twisted Magpie @Lambofthegreatone Understood I am still of the opinion that "the number of full ranks that are not participating in attacks." needs to be improved/more carefully defined though. (I am not being pedantic unecessarily, this is the process it would have to go through internally to be sure it is clear in all cases and there are no loopholes etc. More than one interesting idea during LAB design has been dropped because it couldn't be written down in a sensible and rigorous way. If we…

    Quote from Idum: “The Dev Charge (Res +1) on goats echoes that actually, under the fluff aspect of charging head first with their skull being extraordinarily strong. But recently I've been thinking of changing it a bit... What do you guys would think of this change? ” Firstly some history in case you aren't aware of it. Similar logic was used to give taurukhs dev charge(+1 armour) back in the day, and it was not broadly well received. I get that goats aren't exactly the same, I just wanted to fl…

  • (Not commenting in staff role; in particular note I am not a member of the VS LAB team) Quote from Lambofthegreatone: “For that, keeping that idea (that i think is good) I would change the rule to: - For each full rank of the unit that doesn't contributes to their attacks you have +1 attack. ” I think this an interesting idea I fear that writing it clearly and unambiguously is very difficult Can I ask you do give a fuller explanation of the situations in which you intend this to apply (or not) p…

    (not commenting in staff role) Quote from Kriegschmidt: “Small thing: do me a favour and stop this silly habit of talking about having "upset" people when something receives strong criticism. As far as I can tell, nobody's upset about/by this redesign and it's a careless choice of words. It's just opinions on toy soldiers. ” For clarity, I was not saying you were upset, I was deliberately speaking in generalities As a general statement, I am afraid I must stand by it. It absolutely happens. Peop…

    ooops, I meant to post this yesterday, maybe it affects other people's answers too... Quote from Dahou: “ Quote: “A theme I am starting to see emerging a little bit here, is that people seem to think ID units are not specialised enough, particularly in terms of the target(s) they are good against. Is that correct? ” It's a no for me. I don't think dwarf have to be specialised against specific target. IMO, dwarf should have their own weapon/rules (BB/Ziggurats for warrior, flintlock for CG, half …

    (not commenting in staff role) (Hidden Content) I had a quick read of the thread this morning and spotted these 3 comments on the connection to HBEs. All of these people get cookies Anyone who thought it was too obvious a connection to mention also gets a cookie Anyone who didn't notice it because they don't care about HBE... gets two cookies (In case it doesn't come across well in text, this is of course a joke... I hope that every member of the community cares about all army books and all segm…

  • (not commenting in staff role) Quote from ferny: “ Is this actually the case though? The impression I get is that we fell into the same trap as GW there. Our setting is global, not continental or set around some sort of Mediterranean type sea. Our races are geographically split. Now there is some good mixing, but we have what, 16, factions...do they all have cause to interact? ” My understanding from speaking to BGT members is that this is a pitfall that was specifically looked out for. I would …

It's too late to give my opinion on it apparently, but it would be nice to read the underlying thoughts from the design team. ” @ValourUnbound @Shugdaddy Could either of you make a stickied post with the VS guidelines? That might help people. Cheers Edit: Ah, WW has posted something below, maybe that is enough. Thanks @WhammeWhamme

    (not commenting in staff role) Quote from bas_2312: “You really have to dig deep to find these kind of things like army guidelines. I've been here since the beginning, but haven't been very active on the forums so I don't think I have seen anything about army guidelines before the recent Equitane and Saurian announcements. ” Some context/info (as you say you are not very active): - Guidelines have been made public and sought feedback on since 2019 (beginning with ID, then DE, VS, KOE, SA...), pa…

    Hi all A theme I am starting to see emerging a little bit here, is that people seem to think ID units are not specialised enough, particularly in terms of the target(s) they are good against. Is that correct? Notably, this includes volcanic embrace models, despite their ostensible RPS nature. Anyone want to show their support or opposition to this line of thinking? (just like the post to agree if you don't want to reply) Cheers General note about feedback in case it isn't obvious (Hidden Content…

    (not commenting in staff role) Quote from Cam: “When it's supposed to be an infantry army and you only have 2 elite infantry and one is niche/requires to be built around then is that in line with guidelines? Especially when there used to be 3 elite infantry units. ” I very carefully and deliberately passed no judgement either way on this question (which should not be taken as sympathy towards any particular viewpoint on this issue, just recognition that it was out of the scope/tangential to what…

    (not commenting in staff role) Quote from Minidudul: “you build your army around them and not them integrating the army intuitively. ” General comment that isn't specific to DE or judicators... I think this is an under-appreciated and misunderstood aspect of t9a list building and balance. A balanced book does not mean one can throw darts at the book and have a competitive list. It means that every unit in the book has some place in some competitive lists. Having to build around a unit is not the…

    It seems the main thing people want is more, or re-oriented, damage potential? What targets do people want it to be good against? Why? How specialised (i.e. strong against some targets and weak against others) should it be? Why? What aspects are people prepared to give up to get this? (Note I am more interested in directions than magnitudes for these questions. The total current eliteness is approximately where it is desired to be, so requests for specific magnitudes of eliteness are hard to del…
