  • Quote from greentide: “Thus I see no serious issue with slingshoting characters and the dominance of the knight-bus that can´t be solved by small point tweaks. Unless @Nerocrossius has some serious data in his mind/collection indicating otherwise ” I'm on business travel right now so I don't have my recent data collections from tournaments in front of me right now, but I can share my impressions based on what I've seen and submitted to tournament analysis. I believe EoS is performing decently ri…

  • I really enjoy reiters with brace of pistols, units both large and small. Sneaking behind enemy enemy and causing mayhem or just chaffing things adds an element to my EoS lists that I always enjoy. The surprise charge to a flank for the fire on impact (especially with lightning reflexes or hatred bubble) is a lot of fun too! An honorable mention for me is the imperial dragon. I've played dragons in other factions, but I think EoS has my favorite. Great magic support and light of Sonnstahl alongs…

  • Quote from The Changing Constant: “@Nerocrossius was using one to deliver a locket. Which sounds pretty solid and imagine would clutch to make a mage super competitive. Alternatively, 155 point flying chaff with a spell doesn’t seem bad either. ” I run a Divination master on pegasus with Essence of Mithril and Winter cloak and Locket. It works well to mismatch join with reiters to provide some leadership support to them and of course a fast locket threat is nice. I think Pyro and Cosmo are also …

  • Quote from ferny: “Quote from Eldan: “Quote from setrius: “I don't know too much about the background of EoS. I would like to know if EoS will have a pantheon of gods apart from Sunna. In the case that EoS have it, what is the name of the god of the dead? That is all ” That's already confirmed. Völund, god of smiths, Ullor god of winter. Quite possibly more. ” Do you know of any others besides volund, ullor and sunna? ” There is also Karadon which my understanding is the god of the hunt. I do no…

  • Quote from RomanRagnorak: “I combed through some of the pages in this thread and also the miniatures section, but didn't see any models for knights with great weapons. Does everyone just kitbash to make them since it seems that all manufacturers make knights with either lances or a single hand weapon w/ shield? ” It’s usually kitbashing. I think Norba miniatures will be releasing some knight models soon with great weapons as part of one of their recent kickstarters. I still await easy access to …

    Quote from kompatybilijny: “When you mount your character, he loses his own defensive profile and use the multipart defensive profile instead. Griffon uses all defensive stats of it's character, except Resilence (and HP, but that's unimportant for locket purposes.). So by locketing someone, you give them Resilence 5, not 4. Check page 25 of core rulebook. ” Oh, whoops, you’re right, in that example I used it should be 4 not 5. That’s what I get when writing something right before bed Good catch,…

  • It's been awhile since I've done anything here. I'll try to post some of my recent mad experiments soon; I'm still playing my dragon list and I continue to think it's solid and fun. Since the Relentless banner change I've just put my BSB in a bunker of some sort (depends on the list) behind 40 halberdiers and it's worked well. I'll revisit the list with some fresh thoughts sometime. In other news, I've been looking at EoS tournament lists and I've noticed a subtle trend of Prelates on horse with…

  • This is a similar issue to what OK struggles with in their Scrapling BSB champion--the opponent just kills the champion and breaks the unit. I got to the point where I would run the scrapling champion in a unit behind my big scrapling block-it worked fine, but it was not really optimal. As for the design itself, I get the impression that the Project's game designers are trying to move away from complexity creep within individual units and I think special champion upgrades will be rarer. Even tho…

  • Quote from Herminard: “I run 4. 5 if you count the horsemage with 2+ save as a cowboy. And a tank. Our team played the polish first team for 1st place in the last round of the last 8 man international tournament of Sergum. I wouldnt say its completely on the side of the metagame. ” Oh, I agree that 3+ cowboys can be viable enough, perhaps utilizing them to their max was outside of my skill threshold. I just don’t see heavy cowboy as the dominant future of EoS. I think some people will use a bunc…

  • I have seen very few lists with 3+ cowboys. Abrasus runs two cowboys (one silvershot and one blessed steel inquisitor). The trend I have seen is toward a single blessed steel Inquisitor cowboy. There may have been some lists with Great Griffon and the Inquisitor. The reason the single inquisitor is becoming popular is generally for the 20" march with the movement order. Whenever I've played 3+ cowboys in EoS I have felt that I have put myself at a distinct disadvantage. For a long while I was pl…

  • For what it is worth I love the current EoS Slim book! Personally, I hope it is the last LAB as things probably will (and maybe even should) change quite a bit and I'm not ready to say goodbye yet. EoS slim just has so much variety. I have hundreds of EoS lists in my list archive and among them are dozens of different themes and playstyles. Even competitively I feel like EoS can bring many different kinds of lists to tournaments and see some success in skilled hands. There are some caveats and g…

  • Little late, but here are the two EoS lists from Auf'S Dutch I: List #1 360-Inquisitor, Horse and Light Troops, Shield, Hammer of Witches, Blessed Steel, Dusk Forged 350-Wizard, Wizard Master, 4Spells, Cosmology 200-Wizard, Wizard Adept, 2Spells, Alchemy 305-Prelate, General, Plate Armour Imperial Seal, Obsidian Rock 305-Marshal, Battle Standard Bearer, Great Tactician, Shield, Alchemist's Alloy, Household Standard, Aether Icon 265-Knight Commander, Horse, Shield, Cavalry Pick, Titanic Might 521…

  • Auf'S Dutch I completed and uploaded for EoS. I'll try to finish up Who 8 My Wings today or tomorrow. I apologize on the delay, RL work stuff hit me this week

  • Wardia Pretoriana has already been completed. I’ll try to finish Auf’S Dutch and Who 8 My Wings later this week as I’ve already started them.

  • Official statement for Electoral Cavalry Lance price is that it's staying at 1ppm for now!! Cavalry picks have been the dominant choice for EoS knights in the recent past, we'll see if this lance price changes things. I would imagine if lances become overwhelmingly used, then they'll probably go back up a point or two in the future. However, if they maintain balanced use compared with picks maybe 1ppm is the correct price. It'll also be interesting to see usage on non-knightly orders units and w…

  • Quote from Optimistic C: “Checking in again: do we expect to see a hot fix to the Empire book for these lances? UB being what it is we can just give our KOs Cavalry Picks for the foreseeable future, but it’d be great to know! ” ACS have asked again, we should have a final verdict soon.

  • Quote from dan: “So I thought this thread was about who wins in a head to head-to-head grind fest. Do we have an answer on that somewhat more entertaining question? ” I haven’t run a full simulation yet, but just looking at stats in a head-to-head close combat fight EoS tank should out-grind all configurations of the Infernal Engine except for rock crusher (that beats steam tank much faster). In either case, the two models are going to be fighting each other for a long time...

  • Quote from Optimistic C: “@Nerocrossius Any thoughts on why GW over lance for the KC Cowboy? Obviously it provides better consistency, but you do lose out on hit bonus from LR when doing the combo charge you’re describing. And you can’t use a shield. And such a lightly equipped character doesn’t seem like he wants to get charged regardless. @Alexwellace I think that Nero tried that at one point, But ultimately ended up pivoting to a Marshal because of the superior quantity of attacks and the FIE…

  • Quote from Mattyp: “Hi Marshals, Right, an apprentice with the heirloom. Does he/she get two spells - both no.1 spells but from two different paths or is it a wasted item as the second spell is essentially an unusable slot for the send no.1 spell? ie, can I get lash and fireball on an apprentice with the heirloom? Thanks in advance ” Others have already answered your question. I will second comments that just getting an adept is generally better than an apprentice + Heirloom imo. Either way, it'…

  • Quote from Optimistic C: “@Nerocrossius I appreciate this insight, but my concern about this is still vulnerability to opposing damage. Def 3 Res 4 Arm 3 isn’t a stellar stat line when you’re striking at Initiative 0. Battle focus and Hatred, plus the possibility of stacking with tons of other buffs, are almost certainly a powerful combination. However, we’re now discussing something like 400-600 points of characters on top of our ~350 point unit, adding in the wagon and other spells drags us up…
