  • @Lawot great idea! Good way to implement this without overdoing the character section.

    Quote from youngseward: “Quote from Baldin: “Ye I agree. I love maps like the Farm (B4). But playing them in the tourny feels bad. ” Ive played on B4 twice at tournaments, and to me it never felt overly unbalanced. The hill is in a good equalising position for the south compared to the cover/wall distracting of the north. I think it likely exacerbates some RPS between lists, but reasonably balanced lists I think can play B4 without a significant disadvantage. @marcema other than how powerful tra…

  • @GorillaConda SA would be closest to be inspired from the Vietnamese Kingdom with their excellent use of terrain in guerilla warfare or the Maya, Inca cultures.

  • I just want to mention that you should be careful with thinking losing pyro is bad. Who says we don't get other shiny stuff back that will fill its place? Just the fact that we lose a damage oriented magic path doesn't mean that its an issue. Since avoidance skink cloud seems to be a returning playstyle (if it stays in the guidelines, something i don't know anything about), we might be compensated on the ranged front.

  • Quote from Rixitotal: “Quote from Darken: “Are we just loosing access to pyromancy? It would be nice if we gained access to cosmology instead. It's kinda hard to argue that they are trying to understand the nature of the universe and not give them access to cosmology. ” Yea i would agree cosmo def inetly fits. Lore of heavens was if anything out most iconic lore in older editions (of WHFB) ” There's already a lot said about this, Cosmo is a strict no. The reason for this is mainly that Cosmos wo…

  • @thedarkfourth @lawgnome i guess we have some interesting community challenge going on here for the fluff in the book?

  • @Darkwise @wombat i respect that you dislike the concept and you don't have to like it all. I think the background is just a part of it and everyone is allowed to interpret it in their own way. After all, its fantasy as you said. We appreciate your feedback, but that doesn't mean it is changed. If 80% likes it and 20% doesn't, so be it. Though i think the given background doesn't say that caimans are hippy weed smoking poets, that's your own take on it to make it sound ridiculous. Wisdom comes w…

  • Quote from filosoraptor: “Quote from Lawot: “Quote from filosoraptor: “Sorry but I don't see a Naga concept in a Lizardmen army, not at least the lizardmen we have known for all these years. ” I think the point of the LAB is specifically that these will not be the Lizardmen we have known for all these years. ” If lizardmen are not meant to be a dino based army, I should stop playing this game once and for all ” Its even in the guidelines if you have read them, no worries, i won't let this happen…

  • The thing is here though that Nagas seem a subspecies amd in the LAB Guidelines the subspecies of the SA are already defined with Skinks, Gila, Caimans, Cuatl. So i am not too confident that Nagas will be able to make an entrance if they aren't added in the final guidelines document.

  • Quote from Shinymetallass: “after WTC SA results i have been thought SA need some external improvment ” Agreed, though I would love that people don't start dodging SA like they did with DE and ID due to it being straight out overpowered upom release. It's been one of the main critics of the community that there's a powercreep and if possible i like to tone it down so SA is perceived a bit more positive in comparison to its predecessors

  • Or you add shields to the list of "choose one of the following:..." try to keep rules as short as possible, they are massive right now and really makes it difficult to follow. Book is currently way to complex overall i think, its too mich effort to get into it.

  • Quote from Gnomes2169: “On your second comment: I think you guys missed something for this one... Since Bladed Shields are paired weapons and that means they are two handed, and since you have to choose which weapon loadout a model is equipped with when they are being shot, they cannot combine bladed shield’s armor save with shield, even against shooting. You either get the bonus from the shield or you get the Bladed Shield, you cannot have both. So the armor saves of the Dragonkin are already c…

    Happy to try it out sometime! Even if it is already to make people aware of the time they use. I don't think it is a negative development generally.

    Quote from Marcos24: “I understood his comment as you lose as a result of not being decisive and therefore wasting time but I think penalties are also a good idea. However a big issue for me is really is how long a game could take, I'm fairly turned off by games lasting too long, and often I decide whether or not I want to get a game in based on how long I'll be away. Right now I've been favoring skirmish games because an hour feels just right, and leaves me excited enough to get another game. I…

    Quote from StoffenDK: “If you run out of time, you lose the game? Id say that’s a solid incentive. ” I think this isn't oke, because if you play a 3h round and both get 1,5h games are going to be way to often decided by tbe clock. I think penalty points should be awarded instead, else someome can just bring a list that forces my opponent to make every turn many difficult choices to draw time and lure them that their times runs out and claim 20-0 rather than outplaying them. You don't want that, …

    I think it is oke that characters are affected, it's like the OK banner of gyenget, it also affects characters and even mounts including special attacks like stomps and impact hits of all models. ----- More on the list i posted. I added the corrected version below as indeed, the daimyo is supposed to have the taneka mon for the march and dev.charge. Swapping banners between the red devils and great guard seems indeed a good idea, so i went for the suggestion and see how it works out. Bunker conc…

    Quote from Caledoriv: “When does the tournament start? Thanks for the short report! I also had the impression that these dragons have some rules that are too strong. Longbows for Samurai: The more I think about them the more I feel the base variant should be more expensive... They are essentialle HBE citizen archers, but with heavy armour, better AWSR and an additional weapon... And cheaper (currently). They can also deal with e.g. ambushing Wild Horns rather easily (in CC!). There are rather fe…
