  • Quote from Furion: “just for reference: 2 years ago i had more difficult pairings and managed also 100 points. ” As a forum spectator, I remember that moment quite vividly, it was an epic achievement what you managed. This was the year HbE were bottom, UD were top, and still you got 2 (big wins (or was it 3?) against UD. Congrats for another great performance this year! What are your thoughts regarding top HbE list & its powerlevel?

  • Thanks for tagging me Rob! @KPhan1212 Some of the general guidelines we use internally when designing new armylists are: - You can use the empty armylist template provided in the rulebook after the existing Armylists - Armylist composition, 2 characters, 3 core units, 2 special units 1 support unit - Core and Special units must all have at least 2 models in each of their configurations (Can´t have a "single model" option) - Support units must be "single model". Can´t have formations with more th…

  • Quote from Redbeard: “in addition, you are heavily overloaded in core i feel. Bear in mind that our design intention is that the concept of “Core Tax” Has no place in EW. Meaning, you should be able to build perfectly capable list spending, for example, 50% in core second thing, you have no smith, no magic meaning to not use a whole phase of the game, which is really tough. The Grudge is missing as well. take out Warriors and one marksmen, get a smith and a grudge, lose the shieldbearers und add…

    Quote from ThatMusicWriter: “Battle Report 07-23-2021 Mine and @RHworldbuilding 's second Advanced game. Had a good time, and can't wait for our next game together. ” Thanks TMW! Will have a look at this Map 1, specially on whether we need to free a little bit the deployment zone. It might be too tight due to that big impassable, and 1.6k is not so large of a game size to expect that kind of bottlenecks. I feel BH need to think about bringing a Mino chief, possibly with a Totem. I feel the secon…

  • Ding ding ding! Time’s over! What an incredible poll we’ve had: great participation, great feedback and great attitude from everyone! couldn’t have asked for more, except maybe, to have a winner option other than a perfect draw . With a 50%-50% result, you’ve decided to pass the ball back to our court, so that we (the Essence of War Team) takes a final decision, weighing in your comments. And with that, after debating internally in parallel to the last hours of this poll, we are ready to communi…

  • Quote from Redbeard: “Will the winner of the vote automatically pass into the List? Or will the team consider the given arguments and vote on this themselfs? ” If the results are as close as they are now, we will do a quick review internally, weigh in the arguments and then we’ll communicate the winner shortly after if the results have a winner by a significant margin, then it’d be more straightforward

  • Quote from xaby86: “How long do you plan to keep the survey open? ” Due date is Sunday this week, so 2 more days

  • Quote from xaby86: “Now 53/47. I am proud that the DH community is participating and you are happy. That makes the project great. Which army has had the most participation so far? ” This is the first Armylist consultation we do, and is working great Even if we may not need to do this for each Armylist, we plan to show you previews of Armylist once they’re ready so you can share your feedback with us

  • Wowowow! The copter is getting traction and recovering what seemed a lost battle with an 20-80 start, now sitting at a much more exciting 45-55 split Excellent contributions so far, we're impressed that we've gone over the 30 participants now! Believe me when I say, in the name of all the Essence of War Team members, that seeing such levels of involvement is very motivating for us and gives us renewed energies to continue developing the next Armylists and sharing & involving you in the process. …

  • Very interesting feedback, please keep it coming! The written feedit is very valuable for us to complement the poll results Comments like: “I vote for a warmachine, but organ gun would not have been my top pick” or the “i vote for copters because it can teach DH players on the usage of chaff”, etc. enrich the quality of the feedback To all those that voted but did not post a comment: we strongly encourage you to write your thoughts in a comment!

  • Welcome fellow Generals! In the Essence of War Team we've been quite busy lately with the development of more Advanced Armylists. We've now nearly completed the Dwarven Holds Armylist! We say "nearly" because we've want your input in choosing the support unit for the DH Armylist.

    Quote from Gingersmali: “If it is the same as FB is a point and has no size/thickness. ” Yes and No. The key wording that is in FB but missing in EW (and we need to add it) is: “within X” of the centre of the marker.” we’re missing “of the centre”. So you can use any marker size, but scoring is measured from its center. Will get it updated in the next update, thanks for reporting it.

    Quote from ThatMusicWriter: “OH YEAH, we found a slight issue with the rule book. Nowhere does it describe what size an objective marker should be. Just a little thing that should probably get fixed. ” Will look into it, thanks! Very interesting battle report, these are very helpful thanks! I realise you played with Premade Map 2. How did you find it? Did it have a meaningful impact in which side you chose to deploy, in how you deployed and during the battle?

    Quote from MarekDeOor: “Quote from calcathin: “Against who did the Shabtis fight? How did they perform? ” They fought against the ghouls with the vampire courtier in the unit. The VC had the advantage of fighting first with both the vampire and the ghouls, due to the higher agility. Add the bad dicerolls of the UD player to that, and the conclusion was a full crumble of the shabti's after two rounds of combat. They did manage to knock off a rank of ghouls, but the vampire was left unharmed. ” If…

    Quote from SanderdeGrote: “The UD troops felt very strong during the first two turns with all the magic and shooting happening, but when in combat they were quickly mopped up by the steady stream of VCtroops. But haven't played enough games with them to know if there is a way to make them win combats as well. For the VC the spectral hunters are a great addition indeed. They really added to the feel of an army that;s not just (loose) skin and bones, but also made up by ghastly creatures. ” Agains…
