    Quote: “What are the problems with DH for you? I think I've given MSU variety and by making WM weaker/cheaper, I've improved the Mixed Army. ” I see the main problems for DH are: 1) limited playstyles. (And by playstyles, I don't mean using slightly more models per units versus more units. Playstyles are how you plan to play and win the game.) 2) A flat skill curve (DH shine in lower tables and flop at higher ones) 3) Limited mobility (somewhat linked with 1) and 2) ) Quote: “I hadn't countedthe…

    Quote from Gerfaks: “Beastmaster spend his life for hunting and taming monsters. It's obviously require high melee fighting skills. It's like if he has PhD in Applied Math so he now basics of higher algebra (because it's part of his education). So high fighting skills is part of his beasmaster status. ” This seems like a unusual assumption. I am not seeing any relation between being good at handling & training animals/monsters and fighting. The equivalent would be assuming that since Steve Irwin…

    The Quatl's order may not be the same as the Gilla's/Caiman's order.

  • Units of multiple dinos seem like a fun inclusion. And if it's a core option, even better. Interesting to see a mention of "damaged focused Quatl casters".

    I didn't make the connection. Part of the problem is that sturdy is not the best name for an ability that covers such a wide area of abilities that are mostly not related to physical sturdiness, such as striking precisely (LR). When I look for the definition of sturdy, I get this answer. Sturdy: (of a person or their body) strongly and solidly built. So I would expect abilities related to physical endurance or power (+1 Str, +1 AP and/or +1 Res), not so much about skill (LR, +1 Att, LS, BF)

    TLDR: I really like the effort you have made, but it seems the book was made bottom-up instead of top-down. There seems to be a lot of effort into improving each entry, without a clear direction for the book overall. It doesn't really solve any of the DH problems and doesn't really open different ways of playing. In general, it feels more like the Slim version on steroids than a LAB. Complexity is way too high. Dividing entries may help in this regard, since there are a lot of "hidden entries" t…

  • AFAIK, the FAB armies have more sources of inspiration. So I would expect SA to be present both in "Mesoamerica" _and_ "SE Asia", not in only one of them.

  • We just did a small WH tournament yesterday, and the general reaction was really positive. We even got a player, who was so far reluctant to play virtual games, interested in playing virtual games now. Pretty positive experience Any chance to have free access again before beta is finished to make another tournament?

  • Generating half as much CR would be a neat ability for our weaker troops, to allow our elite to work together with them.

    Yup, a minimized discipline 7 check has a 80.56% success chance, while disc 8 has a 72.22% and disc 9 a 83.33%. So basically: Disc 8 < Disc 7 minimized < Disc 9 < Disc 8 minimized < Disc 10

    Quote from Cam: “You’re right you aren’t dwarves but 7 minimised rr is better than 9 rr. ” For reference, minimized 7 is on average similar to 8.5. So minimized discipline 7 is better than discipline 8 but worse than 9.

  • The Vermin Swarm is finally here! Please give us your feedback: The VS Feedback thread for UD players

  • Pharaohs! We have found our majestic and ancient Necropolis overrun by a mass of rats. There seems to be an increase in these pests all over the world. They seem to be the herald of the Vermin swarm. If rumors are true, these short-lived rats come with great numbers and deadly weapons. Let us know what you think of these new toys and ways and if had a chance encounter, let us know how you either slaughtered them or how your legion crumbled to dust! Even if you haven't encountered these scoundrel…

  • Quote from GorillaConda: “Meanwhile in SA LAB they want to make caimans even worse than they are now. ” ?? As far as I can see from the guidelines, they are more likely to make caimans better rather than worse. Adding intelligence to a brute typically makes them deadlier.

    Quote from piteglio: “i think that a simplified version of this tool could be very useful to teach new players how to "think" about magic in Essence of War. with only 6 flux cards, no veil tokens, few spells per caster and few common items that can affect spellcasting/dispelling, i think it could actually be even nicer. ” I can easily make one if you want. Just need the specifications.

    Quote from Vamp87: “Quote from Eldan: “"Congratulations, legionaire 26, you're promoted. Now go fight that chosen lord." Three second later. "Congratulations, legionaire 27. You're promoted." ” Endless champions? That's so OP?!?! I'll never be able to win against VS with my VC now. ” Do note they can only promote a champion in response to a challenge, not to issue one.

  • Quote from Eldan: “Certainly the dark elves, vermin and potentially some vampires. ” My impression is that DE are more Spartan/Greek than Roman.
