    And if cover is getting you frustrated try the flame thrower or titan mortar, both of which ignore cover.

    No. Your kadim is gigantic. Tall just means standard size units with tall can see over other standard sized models without tall. Same again with large. For a gigantic shooter, only Large, or Large with tall, will block line of sight to standard models.

  • i am going to have to try that cheap wyvern general in my list.... I love mazas bow on my orc general, and that seems a solid way of getting that benefit and the 18" command radius... Hmmm thanks for the notion

    I like them 5 wide. With a fighting vizier BSB in the unit, it makes a solid centre to your battleline. Push it forward to threaten with the 20 blunderbuss shots, and draw charges. With all those ranks you are almost guaranteed to be steadfast against any charge, and they are doubled for the first round of combat. The unit isn't going to win combats by liking stuff typically, but with parry and 3+ armour saves it isn't giving up to much combat resolution. The counter charge on our turn means you…

    the coolest thing about putting blunderbuss warriors with the bastion is that you get both a unit with 20 shots, and a ranked anvil unit. 25 guys with shield and blunderbuss can rank 8 ranks deep, are fairly tanky, and shoot. Yo u of course need another unit nearby to scrape the enemy off the anvil, but since you are only 100mm wide, there is always room for something to come help out.

  • Army guidelines matter, so HBE are a faction with access to major flying component, and EoS is a faction that as has black powder. Limits for large flying mounts being different is covered by the same logic.

  • In 6th and 7th I would take 2 units of 10 to 12 knights with a priest for the hatred, and a block of halberds to work with. Anvil forward the halberds, scrape stuff off with the knights. Chicken knights didn't exist. Throw in some pistols, and some light infantry and one of each warmachine, volley gun, cannon and mortar, and it was a fun all comers kind of build.

  • Make a support knight unit entry like there is for heavy infantry. 6 max sounds good, deployed 3 wide is fine, and would not need to provide them the steadfast bonus that support infantry can enjoy. Give them (and not bigger units) access to supporting and counter charges, a real support unit. The counter charging unit would add +1 for the charge and a banner +1. Then it doesn't matter if it adds much in terms of wounds. It would not break ranks on a flank, but so what, it would still be fun to …

  • It has only partially been turned around, in terms of cavalry use. The way you see it now is as ablative armour for heroes. You almost never see smaller knight units as anything other than scoring darts. The issue is that the middle ground has been taken over by KotSG. 3 of those guys give you 9 wounds, and 12 attacks, and stomps for 290pts. There is no configuration of knights that givea that kind of value as a mid size unit that the KotSG do. 5 knights can be cheaper, and more knights can work…

  • The fast attacking rush lists. Stupid chimeras messing with my battle line. Fluffy. And stupid wrath of God. I do not play a gunline EoS army, almost never, but since my troops have to coordinate to work, multiple threat vectors with long charge ranges can pull apart my army. Doesn't work as well against me as you would like... But I know what I am doing. It doesn't work because I a) don't panic and b) don't allow myself to get baited into playing my opponents game. Not too often anyway. If I ca…

  • List 6 is gamey AF. It is totally meta dependant. Tonnes of moving parts but no real fighting units anywhere. If the meta is big on MSU then cool I suppose, but there is nothing there that could stop an actual block of troops. Speaking of which, I saw 2, yes 2, units of heavy infantry larger than 20. In total. In 12 armies. Aside from a meta that favours MSU, what the hell am I looking at? It seems the only really desired parent unit is Imperial guard. Often taken cheap and cheerful. Weird.

  • For internal balance the great weapon option on IG should go down a point or two. At the moment sword and shield is selected more than twice as often. I know that doe a couple years now the rules team has said that they are better than we the players think they are, and yet data shows this consistent disconnect on what is actually chosen. If the current price were to stay, having the shield become default gear on the unit would help. It would only affect ranged safe, but would make the great wea…

  • Oh and for fun with two wizard wagons around about turn 5 or so you have the unlikely but hilarious option of charging two chariots at unsuspecting opponents.

  • If you use two level two Wizards, each on a buff wagon, and a prelate in your fightiest unit, you have 4 spells, 5 bound spells, and 5 channels, with 2 passive buffs. Or you can use a prelate altar and a wizard lord on an engine for slightly more points. Now you prelate prayers have a 6 inch bubble as does the hatred. And the prelate is an anvil unit by himself. If you run a steam tank you have 3 large target elements for some target saturation as well.

  • Well he has one of each arcane engine already as a start. If you are using great weapon IG, lighting reflexes mean you are going in agi order, not at agi 0. Agi 3 means the IG strength 6 attacks are going before most things in the OnG list. If his prelate with battle focus sword is in the IG, it means that a serious number of these strength 6 attacks are going first, hitting on 3+ or 4+, with a rerolls, and wounding on 2+. He has 31 IG. In line formation and with an order to fight in extra ranks…

  • You are frustrated by mangler squigs. Have you considered militia? 10 or 14 guys with pistols who can March and shoot will counter those things nicely, and cheap. For your infantry try combining those two detachments of halberds into one unit of 40. Consider trying your 31 imperial guard with great weapons and a lightning reflexes wizard wagon instead of hand weapon and shield. You have two engines anyway, try 2 level 2 mages one on each arcane engine. It should be about the same points as what …

    Our game works that way. Chess is actually a little more descriptive than you think. The pawn is a Spearman. He steps forward but kills on the diagonal by getting around his opponents shield. The tower or rook is a Howdah on an elephant. Hence long but linear movement. The knight is a horseman, advance and flank, move two squares turn and flank one. Bishops used to be ships. They tacked in to the wind, hence the diagonal. The Queen was the Queen and her fast elite bodyguard, hence the very free …
