    A good rule of thumb might be that if give something, you take something if equal value. When there is nothing of equal value, you suck it up. Where being Steadfast in water might make a real difference is with the Extra Big Kraken, so you may need to decide if you are okay with price increases to the Kraken.

  • Quote from setrius: “Quote from echoCTRL: “Quote from Ivar K: “Quote from echoCTRL: “the new standard will be 50*100 mm), and to offset this nerf with the new rule which buffs the individual discipline of the model. ” Then why not go to that standard? I am sure that a balanced entry is possible with that base size and if it is going to be a standard, the LAB could be supporting it instead of making an exception. ” Great Question.There can and should be deviations away from Standards.

  • Quote from Krarks: “Quote from echoCTRL: “Yes, new game wide guidelines are forbidding the combination of Res 5 with Towering Presence on a 50*50 mm base. This is game wide and both DE and ID are following suit. ” Does that mean the Lamassu Scholar will lose either Towering Presence, Resilience 5 or change its base size?Or is it an execption because -technically its no longer a mount -ID characters have R5 anyway. (I'll interpret no answer as in you can't say/don't know as you're not part of tha…

  • Quote from setrius: “Quote from Casp: “Thanks for explanation. Agree or no at least it allow to understand the logic. I think it should be added to any official news that imply such rebasing. @Ghiznuk maybe would it worse to quote it on Facebook. ” My advice is not rebase or buy models for new units until the final version of the book. This way you don't have nasty surprises because right now in this stage all can change. ” Wise Words!

    Quote from setrius: “Quote from echoCTRL: “Kraken and Hydra have a desired eliteness level that should be worth 400 points to the army. So keep that in mind when talking about buffs to either. ” Ok, but Strider (water) in kraken is a very situational rule and only you need to pay for half of the rule. For me is more fluff rule in this model than anything ” I am just informing you of the constraints, I am not attempting to shut down your brainstorming. I think too often, the TT informs the Commun…

  • Quote from Casp: “Lots of negative feedback on base change on Facebook. Could we have any explanation of LAB team for this base change reason to understand it ? ” Yes, new game wide guidelines are forbidding the combination of Res 5 with Towering Presence on a 50*50 mm base. This is game wide and both DE and ID are following suit. We could have elected to keep the 50*50 mm base for Hippogriff but would have required removing Towering Presence and including a new rule to prevent the model from jo…

    Quote from Cam: “Quote from echoCTRL: “Or ability to give -1 Resilience to whole units. ” Will the altar be getting anything in the next update? It’s disappeared. ” well, it definitely needs to be sorted out. Not sure the next update will be the one to do so entirely. There are issues, such as the weapons and going out alone that need to be sorted out. Personally, I wouldn't mind if it were like the Effigy of Dread and just had an Area Hex increased via Veil Tokens. I would also like the Altar t…

    I see your point, but am not certain it is appropriate that something, even a Kraken should get Steadfast in Water. Regardless, the thing is a single Rank. Anyway, you make a good point and it is worth considering. I will tell MSU17.

    Kraken doesn't have Strider (Water) because the Kraken is a monstrous gigantic creature that doesn't take Dangerous Terrain Tests due to water terrain and so doesn't need Strider (Water). Now, why isn't Ruthless Efficiency a Dreadful Ability? I can say other faction's find it quite Scary. Or the Fear Aura created by Effigy of Dread. Or ability to give -1 Resilience to whole units. Or Gorgon's Stare, where a unit of 3 can wipe out whole units of Knights. Or Riposte on the Prince. Or the Assassin …

    Giving DE Wizard Masters would require - RT decide that the DE TT must make it available again. RT would define the scope of magic power available to DE. (Meaning noncombat caster/BSB) Background team would have to advise on what is removed. The scope would involve remaking two Characters, the faction's magic, and possibly adding a new Character on top. Then there is the concern that having a Wizard General.is too efficient points wise, and the entire rest of the army must become more expensive …

    Quote from Dopey: “Quote from Villon: “we need to remember that any change in paths on a book have an impact in other books. Maybe having thauma in DW will remove thauma from OK... maybe ” I’d have a hearty laugh if DE switched Thauma for Cosmology with Ogres. A sight to see how BGT jumps through those hoops to justify that! ” seems like it would be an easy justification to make if they wanted to, Marko.

    Lancelot was French wasn't he?

  • I think the French Community is already worried that no French players are part of the KoE TT. They seem disinclined to play a bunch of English knights.

    No, the Exarch gets Fightyness because it cannot have Wizard Master, so other way around. Getting Ice and Fire would require giving up Perception of Strength. And, you likely wouldn't get the better Evo spell. It is a fight to keep the spells they have.

    Quote from Palmu: “Even now, I can't come up with many situations where one of the three isn't useful. Granted, the Hereditary and Effigy kind of fill the same needs. ” But it is also good to have redundancy in spell selection, so the opponent can dispell one but not the other. That is what makes Paths like Druidism so strong. Don't let me cast Summers Growth, fine, here comes Stone Skin.
