    Quote from DarkSky: “The topic of Occultism ” For me its all the paths and the current allocation: Thurma makes so much sense to me. We have religious cults. And thurma has speaking in tongues which directly fits in with the fear and terror mechanics. I dont under stand why we have new fluff but largely identical lores. Thurma is also the lore of high risk/reward of higher casting but higher miscasts. That is the exact flavour the warlock outcast has. I really think that before beta the team sho…

    Quote from Peacemaker: “I think Alchemy should be scrapped as well. With the direction the book has gone, the alchemy lore is just infringing on HE territory. ” This is actually a fair criticism. The new DE are not masters of form, our equipment and smithing are very (if not below) average. Our access to armour and weapons is rather limited to our troops (and heroes). Our strength is in skill and training not equipment. Additionally we have a strong bond with beasts and animals. I could easily s…

    Quote from echoCTRL: “So, Divination was necessary from a Background perspective. Dropping the path would have meant removing Oracles and other rewrites of the Temples ” ***Not speaking in any official capacity but just as a punter*** I mean this sounds like a BG problem. Cosmo is supposed to be the unifying lore between all elves. In what world do the sanctioned wizards of the DE republic not heavily utilize this lore. Or have DE wizards suddenly become more divine than the others. So much that…

    I mean it seems easy to give the temple Cosmo over div. And solve all the issues.

    Quote from Konrad von Richtmark: “This does get me thinking though, perhaps there would be a need for simplified descriptions of the rules. As strictly complementary to the formal, official, lawyer-proofed rules. ” I feel this would only contribute to more confusion.

    it was painted by Squidmar Minitures. But that price is bonkers. you could get a really nice 3d printer for that kinda money.

    Quote from Kriegschmidt: “It applies to nearby units but sadly not to the Vampire+Dragon model. ” This is wrong. Because storm caller gives all models hard target the dragon benefits. if it only gave model parts aka the rider hard target then you would be correct. But in the case the whole model gains it.

  • Quote from Elpeji: “We really need new mechanics, for raise, for March, for crumble. Etc ” I am totally on board here, though undead and crumble being main rule book rules posses a huge issue. Though it might just be the impetus to finally revise the gold rules.

    Quote from Glakthag: “It is probably old news ” A few versions ago Eternal duellist also let you reroll armour saves. And it was cheaper. But as @Janus has pointed out the chassis of a vampire is much better and it was very strong. Also with duellist not being a magic item but a blood power means you get more item allowance and can get it on multiple characters. Any way all I'm trying to say is that its not apples for apples, as such its expected to have a price variation.

    Quote from Stolb55: “Could you please tell what exactly build of Lamia dragon lord ? ” There is a few options: Either super cheap with obsidian rock and an adept and a shield breaker paired weapons Middle ground is mr2 + either kingslayer/blessed inscriptions on a halberd + maybe better magic Super expensive is reapers harvest, mask of innocence + cursed medallion depends on how all in you want to go.

    Quote from Kriegschmidt: “Can someone 'sell' it to me? ” Its only better in a few niche scenarios: most notably lamia challenge beasty. If you can force challenges having the better fighter makes sense.

  • Quote from youngseward: “enough to be problematic even if the tachs take all the fire and die. ” Worst case they have giant body guards / meat shields, who are happy to lose a few wounds.

  • I like the wizard set up very durable and versatile. Interesting core, didn't want some raiding chariots to hide your wizards in when facing some bad match ups? Though I guess you are in dire need of scoring. As for your match eye of dominance is looking mighty fine. As are the gortachs. Though I cant see you breaking the lemur block so id wager a 14-6 win for your self

    Quote from Blingley: “Assuming rank 2 Caiman, the unit shoots 8 times, ” This is where the most variation is. A minimum unit of 15 + caiman can reasonably play 7 wide with the caiman in the 3rd rank. This gives you 14 shots and due to your poor agility you only need to take 2 skink casualties to allow the caiman to move into combat. Though this does pose some risk, eg if the enemy can allocate all attacks into the caiman. But it also allows for 28 total shots with 1 shoot and a stand and shoot s…

    Quote from Perch: “These units can kill caiman and skinks won't do anything against such targets. Especially varkolak will reliably kill caiman before it will even have a chance to swing. Goblins were just an example of weak RnF unit, u can try others with more closer speed such as 5"/10". ” Vark is at -1 to hit the caiman. but does average 3.125 wounds against the caiman with hatred. So I would not say reliably. Quote from Perch: “I am also quite intrigued that at the same time u see 6"/12" inf…

  • I like expanding the ghosts too. Make them less RPS and less niche. I would also remove ghost hooves from skeleton horses. Never made sense to me why skeleton horse can run through impassable.

    Quote from Wesser: “WDG and ID had abilities to nullify Vanguard/Scout and you’ll notice they didnt make the final cut ” As they shouldn't. Disabling your opponents stuff that they paid points for is super feel bad. Its RPS inducing. I have a bunch of regen and you have a bunch of flaming woops got hard countered. It feels bad. However a cool way to punish/interact could be something like: White-Ra's Special Tactics: For each enemy unit that has one of the following keywords (ambush,scout,vangua…

    Quote from Perch: “16 skinks+1 caiman will probably lose to any other melee infantry unit with close to their value. They cannot even charge and win against 20 common gobbos with spears and shields (145 pts with musician). ” Of course cause thats a terrible matchup. Try against a chimera, or varkolak, or blazing glory etc. Basically they are best when res2 doesn't matter, eg enemy strength is 5+, you also get parry so again compare parry goblins rather than spears. The caiman is also not bad at …

    typical sa lists have some big blocks with expensive characters so it can be hard to get them onto objectives. Small units of skinks can move about and grab objectives quite well. They have quite good movement for infantry. They are also not bad at protecting flanks and rears from light cav, and monsters. If you have 2 or 3 units you can move up throw a heap of poison shots then double flee any charges
