  • 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. ” I think all armies have unique AWSR.

  • In this proposed 'democratic' system, who would actually do the work of writing the lore? Who would read books, follow courses, listen to podcasts to get a deeper knowledge of the history and mythology that serves as inspiration for the background?

  • Quote from Zwei: “You are right. Trial and Terror sounds weird ... the abbreviation does not. "Im going to use the Deepfire Thrower with TnT!" ” Nice, I never saw it that way. I'm going to use your abbreviation . Every weapon used to have an 'Overcharge (unique flavourful rule per weapon)' rule, but we streamlined it into one general term because it was decided not to have the extra stuff in brackets that had no effect on the rules. Since 'overcharge' or 'overload' wasn't applicable to all weapo…

  • We use 'vermin' and 'ratman/ratmen' interchangeably to refer to them as a race. House Stygia also falls under the main vermin culture, which is based on ancient Avras (in turn inspired by later republican and imperial Rome). Of course, all houses have their own specialization, but the main ones present in the book share the same culture in a broad sense.

  • Quote from Cam: “How did the team get away with calling the Pope a ruinous dictator? ” I would like to point out that the office of Pontifex Maximus was a Roman rank in a classical pagan religion long before Jesus Christ was born and St. Peter became the first Pope. Julius Caesar was perhaps the most famous Pontifex Maximus. Quote from Ondjage: “I dont see an problem with taking inspiration from real life religions and I think the catholic references are really cool ” We tread carefully around r…

  • Quote from Bogi: “What!? Because the models that we have are not the same? What is the point of people on the LAB all liking this and other similar posts? Bunch of merry men getting together to defend each other. There is nothing funny or anything constructive to like here, it is just asking a question, which is fine. Is this a game by the gamers for themselves or for other gamers? If it is for others, at least for some, this is an important issue, obviously it keeps coming up. Add a unit, easy,…

  • Quote from Flames: “A) Fear that swarms naturally suffer when their numbers are broken, is not there. B) A unique battle formation? We had a huge opportunity to get really creative. C) Impact hits every round or auto hits from countless vermin lapping around the foe. Anyone remembers the old zombies lapping round from 5th edition? ” These things are in the book, in one way or the other (items, rules).

  • Quote from WhammeWhamme: “This is not acceptable. This is contrary to the entire point of the project. Whoever signed off on it should be ashamed of themselves. ” Can you elaborate on why merging two very similar units in a way that doesn't invalidate anything is against what the project is doing and how it should be something to be ashamed of? This merger passed multiple rounds of internal review by many teams.

  • Phalanx is a general term for a mass infantry formation with pole-arms, spear or pikes (possibly even other hand weapons). I think some people tend to associate it solely with Greek hoplites because of Total War games and the film 300, but it was more broadly used than that. There's no reason why these veterans can't form a closely packed formation with a wall of steel halberds.

  • Quote from Eldan: “Anyone got any model ideas for greatweapons? ” The Bloodfurs were partly inspired by ancient Roman lictors who wielded greataxes as badges of office.

  • You can buy Roman shields from Victrix that fit well on many ratmen miniatures. I think the old Empire knights had laurel wreaths, I found some of those wreaths/crowns online and used them on heroes/champions.

  • Quote from Shlagrabak: “Quote from Eldan: “Good thing it's called a Mauss gun, then. ” Do you know if the name is a reference to something or is this a coincidence? ” It's a reference to a Gauss rifle or coilgun (a somewhat sci-fi weapon), after the German mathematician Gauss. Quote from arwaker: “There is no common typographic translation of vermin language to Imperial letters. The name of this cannon can be spelled both ways in Imperial, Mauss or Maousse (depending on whether the translator li…

  • Quote from skipschnit: “Just an FYI for the science geeks out there... the Mauss Cannon is based on the rail gun. The ability to use the electro charges stored/generated by a combo of elements found and tech supplied by the various houses. If you’ve watched videos of these weapons, then you will see their comedy. They are either super powerful or they tear themselves to pieces. Catapult....super simple. A clay pot filled with pitch, set alight, and launched. Sometimes the clay pot breaks in mid …

  • Quote from Axiem: “Quote from Ghiznuk: “Quote from Axiem: “One other question: is there a reason these models are listed as being on different base sizes? Doesn't this make it challenging from a modeling/army building standpoint? ” they're different models for different units, i don't see why it's wrong to have different bases ? ” What is the purpose of this? They look similar (at least to a lay person), functionally similarly (both swift stride constructs, even if they fill different roles), an…

  • Quote from heliconid: “Is the ruinous dictator the same model that was previously referred to as the Dux? ” Yes, it is.
