    Hombre de Mundo - - The Vermin Swarm (VS)

    Here's another idea: VS doesn't even have an H spell. Instead, the player may spend up to three veil tokens per magic phase and add a Rat Swarm into Tunnel Reserve for each token. This is more flexible, doesn't require a specific wizard to do it and you also get more Veil Tokens the more wizards you have, giving you additional incentive to go with the Triumvirate naturally, instead of dodging it with items.

    Don't get me wrong @The Unmarked, I'm not saying my tweak would be more desirable, just taking it to its simplistic extreme: If you want a low cast spell that summons rat, here it is. I think it helps to view the spell for what it is in such a way to see if it's a good idea or not. If the idea is good but too underwhelming or boring, then definitely look at additional effects such as they one you proposed. In other words, we can look at summoning rats in a vacuum. Is that what we want? Is summon…

    If you want to take that concept to its utmost streamlined: Awaken the Swarm - 3+ Type: Universal Duration: Instant Add one Rat Swarm to Tunnel Reserve.

    Quote from arwaker: “Among the spell selection of VS, and from my experience so far, it might be helpful to have a spell that could be cast with just using 1 die. I have several time the situation where I cast two "bigger" spells, and calculate best dice numbers for them, and end up with 1 die left over. So I normally "overcast" one of them. But I think if the H spell could have a reasonable chance of success with 1 die (so 3+), it could be a useful addition. So, instead of tinkering around with…

  • My initial impressions for Eastern European Empire units. Bear Cav (Hidden Content) The bears are cool. They feel beefy and strong, armour is fairly simplistic, in a good way. The riders, however, leave much to be desired. The champ is okay but the others seem just a bit hunched over, passively pointing their sticks forward. Contrast this to Norba's previous generation of bear cav, the riders had a lot more going for them. Overall, a solid improvement though and the bears are a definite level up…

  • Quote from Col. Tartleton: “I mean they didn't look like rats and they required a lot of planning to make a regiment that would rank up properly but yes I have nostalgia for my monkey rats. The modern models are better suited for massed regiments. ” I too prefer the multi-part rats from 6th edition. The look is a bit weird, sure, but still a lot better than the, quite frankly lazy, furless rats released in later years. Cult Miniatures has a decent amount of modular rats that generally fit much n…

    Quote from hasker: “One thing I can’t get my head around is the Hereditary spell. Every time I read the rules, I find myself thinking there must be a mistake somewhere, as I can’t find any use for that other things can’t do better for less investment. I would love to hear from the design team what the thoughts are behind the spell? ” There's been a few posts about what the spell is aiming for. Basically, it's a summoned unit meant to harrass, go behind enemy, possibly engage weak targets. Here's…

  • Quote from skipschnit: “We had a similar effect for the Mauss early on, but too many rules to cover situations that may have popped up. It was scrapped for a simpler plan. ” Just to be clear, when I said it's the "most reasonable" course of action, I meant that from a rat's perspective, not as a rule But I am curious as to what issues you ran into when experimenting with such an idea!

  • Quote from Lagerlof: “Quote from Eldan: “If it's a rail- or coilgun (flat firing arc, high acceleration, big penetration) it should also ignore cover. Some bushes are not going to stop a railgun. ” Cover is not always about stopping projectiles, it's also about not seeing the target which makes it harder to hit (realistically). ” My suggestion would be to ignore cover and just blast through our own unit(s) that are in the way. This is the most reasonable course of action.

  • Some good tips ITT already. I'd like to add that a decent amount of the older Titan Forge minis are not optimised for printing in many different ways. Oftentimes they suffer from odd meshes, cavities and quite possibly bad fit as well. My point is that it's not necessarily multipart models that's tricky, it could be these models in particular. I've printed multipart rats from Cult Miniatures and they've come out great, so I know it's not an inherent issue.

  • Quote from bas_2312: “This is a point where I feel t9a could learn from GW. GW => Throw in every cool reference they can find and make it their own. ” I don't think this is possible to do without a long time to establish canon and traditions. 1st edition Warhammer was definitely not "its own". They originally wanted to make LotR and then it slowly evolved into the Warhammer identities we all know and love today. But those didn't really became solidified until around 4th-5th edition or even later…

  • I think one clear takeaway is that there is still a decent amount of improvements that need to be made in the eyes of the community but that there's also a lot of things in the LAB that do resonate with us. And as non-specific as that is, it's still valuable.

  • Quote from fireballmj: “It's fairly telling because it shows the majority don't want to have to rebase their already painted models. Even 50x75 just involves playing your existing model side on. ” If 50x75 involves no rebasing then there's literally not a single argument to revert to 75x50. It's not good for modeling, it's not good for gameplay and switching to 50x75 comes at no rebasing cost. Why would anyone vote 75x50? Quote from fireballmj: “As for the game play ramifications of the 75x50 ba…

  • It's a bit difficult to interpret this part of the poll! Like I said in a previous post, I gave it a 2, despite being happy with the book overall. My motivation for doing so was to encourage the LAB Team to take a look at some of their core concepts and start thinking about if they really are the best ways to achieve what they want. For example, I think a lot of concepts in this book are flavourful and fun but the execution is too complicated and messy. The mishaps and the H spell would be prime…

  • Quote from fireballmj: “The fact that 57.6% of votes went for either the original 75x50 or the exact same base but with a different model facing(aka the OTHER no rebasing option - just play it side on /shrug) is fairly telling. ” You think so? What exactly is it telling? To me, those two are radically different. The same (but flipped) dimensions do not make them similar in-game, at all. The 75x50 is weird and unconventional. The 50x75 is standard. I would definitely be happy with a 50x75. Would …

  • Quote from arwaker: “Seems like the book is on a good way, appreciated by majority, despite the usual nay-sayer minority. ” Yeah... at first glance at just the graphs, it doesn't look good but when you look at the numbers, more players are happy with it than not. Here, there's a lot of ambiguity. I actually voted a 2 because I do think there are aspects of this book that need a lot of work, there are some things like the Hereditary that just don't really click and probably can't be hotfixed. But…

  • That's a rather slim win for 75x75, yet exceeding the margin of error. As I've said before, I have yet to hear a single good reason for 75x50, beyond rebasing. And a clear majority of players do not mind rebasing. So, things being what they are - at this point - what is even the argument for 75x50?

    Damn, you have a lot of real nice looking graphic material there

  • I like all Reiter options. However, there's plenty of options for gunlines and dual pistol reiters are unique in their ability to harrass and threaten soft targets behind enemy lines. This also makes them a unique threat: Your enemy will need to deal with them or risk losing a war machine or small wizard bunker. The repeater gun reiters work best when they can vanguard into ruins and then shoot from there, as you're rather safe from both shooting and charging... but you can't always count on hav…
