  • Quote from Caledoriv: “I organised some 3k tournaments with additional restrictions (and back in 8th edition 1400 points)=. The problem if you use the rules without additional restrictions is that there are quite often things some armies cannot handle. I.e. there are quite a few matchups where you know your chances of winning are very slim. We introduced the following restrictions: - max. 340 points per single model (characters, monsters, chariots etc.) - max. 500 points or 35 models per unit - …

    The point is that usually a casting phase with the outcast is likely 2 spells with 4 dice because that's very efficient (at least after some testing i nearly always ended up doing that with witchraft), so you roll the two spells and if the first cast is hig the opponent will let it pass and try with the other, if the first one is low they'll try their luck with it, with the second cast they'll launch all their dices if they didn't with the first. This means that you don't have to face the averag…

    I think it's just rps, if you played it against my infatry list is useless, if i have single monster but have some cover it's worse than a cannon, if i have lots of large infantry/cavalry units it's better than a cannon.

    I tried one with 10 heath riders and ended up leaving the unit and basically use it like i use the eagle king shamanism master, at the end of the game i charged a wounded hydra that was in combat with another unit and killed it on the charge, that's a thing that the eagle druid couldn't do. i do think that he has potential : - Shamanism attribute plus 4++ with a decent combat output could do wonders to pin up things with few quality attacks and stomp - Adv 10" with a decent output zones chariots…

  • Quote from Marcos24: “But you don’t have to memorize every single spell I only really know Druidism (at least the same 4 I always take), a couple spells of divination and a few spells of shamanism as it is. Player 1: “Im going to cast X on that unit” Player 2: “Ok what does that do?” Player 1: “3d6 hits s4 ap2” Player 2: “Ah crap ok, 5 dice to block it!” That simple. Or look at the cards ” It's not about what your opponent casted now, it's about what your opponent might cast next, the trouble wi…

    De have some elements that reduce the need of a BsB : - Possibility to have Fear/Fearless in various form (Mask, Lacerating Touch, Altar, Scent of blood) - Possibility to have Dis 10 with 18" range - Obsidian Guards panic rerolls - Beastmaster Willbreaker Craft for monsters - Can Bring lots of monster that are reasonably indipendent - Divination Adept that can give Guiding Light to help - Tendency to be either steadfast (Academy troops) with 8/9 discipline or to win combats in mmu and either win…

    Can i use the hereditary against the wounds that would kill the model that casted it, or it's already dead ? Ex. a character do 3 wound to my temple exarch that casted the hereditary in combat If i break with an Obsidian Guards unit can i benefit from Will of the Senate for the panic test caused by their break from units within 6," or it is already counted as fleeing even if i didn't flee yet?

  • Do you know that Warhall have a discord with a channel "Matchmaking" ? You can message there looking for a game, it's technically not for long term planning (usually you search in the same day) but you can ask there anyway or ask for a channel for long term game planning. For example a couple of hours ago i written in that channel searching for a game in about two hours (not found an opponent yet)

    I think that xbows will go up in price, they are not really noticed because everyone thinks that they are just a shooting unit and sometimes when they are annoying in cc they think it's just luck (happened a couple of times when on average i would have won the combat), but when their prowess will become common knowledge i think it will be different. That said i also usually run characters in them because i feel that the big blocks don't need that much help while a little punch on the xbows means…

    Well, also Black Cloacks run on 38 points/model and they have Mar 10 and range 12 with two poison Str 3 shots (Ap 1 in short range), they are surely good in cc but usually that don't bear that much weight on the cost of such units.

    I took the liberty to aggregate some part to address them better in one point per argument Quote from Caledoriv: “@Chack Sorry I missed your comment until now since we both posted at almost the same time . Thanks for sharing your opinion! Here are my thoughts regarding your points and some explanations why some rules turned out as they have: I disagree that Off 3, Def 3, Str 3, and Agi 3 (i.e. Electoral Cavalry stats) is enough - unless you play a mass army which Nippon is not supposed to be.

    Or maybe the price is just wrong and will be adjusted in the future, no need to split hairs on that.

    If an enemy unit catch a fleeing DE unit it counts as "inflicting one or more health point losses" for the hereditary ? If i have a character inside a unit of Silexian Auxiliaries that have used suppressive fire this turn can the character charge out of the unit ? Petrifying Stare count as a melee attack ? Can it benefit from flaming attacks ?

    Quote from Kriegschmidt: “I think @Chack is onto something. For example, I would absolutely play the carp out of this: -Accurate, Quick to Fire (Note: still no stand and shoot) -Horses (so no model invalidation) but only Adv/Mar 8 (blame the weight of the harpoon gun) -Hit (not wound) on Large/Gigantic causes temporary loss of Swiftstride and Fly -Drop shooting Str back to 6 (re. guidelines' stipulation about shooting supporting cc) -Shooting has Multiple wounds D3 vs Gigantic, D3+1 vs Large (bi…

    So i played against @Bladeox and his list with my DE, the army looks cool, i get my total war shogun 2 vibes Now some considerations, please note i played only once and i'm giving first impressions, i don't have an encompassing experience with it, also my considerations are usually at design level, maybe points are balanced and it's not an external power concern - So your basic samurai has reroll to panic, minimized to break, +1 combat resolution, generate 1 additional hit every 3 in cc (more or…
