    To me the rule seems very clear as written. - You either "disregard a simultaneously suffered wound" (in which case the disregarded wound does not count towards combat res), or - You "recover 1 wound" which does not affect combat res, regardless of whether or not the wound recovered was suffered in this combat or not. Please correct me if I'm wrong

    It seems to me like the problem with the old IW is that it forced our wizards to use many dice, and then (if we don't blow up) the casting value is impossible to dispell. What about moving towards a high-risk - high reward system that solves this problem? For example: The Casting Values of spells cast by the model are increased by +1. Dispelling rolls against non-Bound spells cast by the model suffer a −2 modifier if cast with 1 Magic Dice, or a -1 modifier if cast with 2 Magic Dice.

  • It is true that not everything in the book needs to be tournament level competitive. Not everyone is a Spike and not every local group follows the global meta. That being said, if we are talking about pure internal balance, VonK could very much use some help. My suggestions [brian storming warning] (apply some but not all of the following): 1) Reduce to 0 points. 2) Give heavy armour for free. 3) Allow multiple blood powers on a single Count. 4) Change Dark Coach blood tie to something more usef…

    Quote from Baldin: “I am musing with: Giant Harpoon (working name) Range 18", Shots 1, str 6 ap3, Mw d3 quick to fire, Reload! When a large or gigantic unit is hit by this weapon the hunting chariot must immidiatly make a charge move charging the hit unit. Apply all the usual rules for charging for this out-of-sequence charge. ” Cool idea! I think it would make more sense to give the target Frenzy for a turn and would have the potential of achieving a similar effect. As for the new WIP Hunting C…

  • Quote from Adam: “Quote from Krarks: “My preference would be: No more independent. Every vampire needs a bloodline as they get passed down with becoming a vampire. Those are the major 5, done.* There could also still be several (dozens? hundreds?) of minor bloodlines.. maybe some other old bloodline which is just not a major player anymore..maybe some mutation of another..influenced by magic, the gods, or or or Which could be then explored in a supplement book, allowing to mix those bloodlines b…

  • Quote from Giladis: “Quote from bolard: “Biggest problem with independent and bloodlines: Independent: no cost for being independent and 20% core Bloodlines: core +5% AND pay for upgrading to bloodline... That should be the other way around to fix both: Indep: 25% core Bloodlines: 20% core and pay for upgrading to bloodlines OR 25% core and free bloodline upgrade Both will be fixed very easely that way ” Have you guys forgotten why the Core section is as it is? Bloodlines and Independent Vamps u…

    I am surprised by all the spectral hunters. Lot's of Dark Coaches as well, but no shock there. Double necro adept for 2xRR to wound is also quite popular. I hope they do well, but I hope even more that the Dec balance patch buffs the bloodlines and unseen units.

  • I think the Independent line is overpowered internally, which is why I pushed to have it included in the survey. I'm not sure what the best fix is, if we can't change core percentages. As for more realistic balance patch options, I would like to see decreases for wraiths (base -> 175), fell wraith (->100), Strigoi (->90), and VonK (-> 0). I can never get myself to take these in serious lists because of internal balance (there is always a much better choice). Quote from Traumdieb: “Wizard Master …

    I would be a bit sad to see the +4" march rule go. Perhaps there could be an upgrade option: either hard target or +4" march (determined during list building). The options could cost different amounts of points to balance the two options.

  • This has probably been asked, but are impact hits and stomps from supernal troops magical attacks? I'm thinking yes, but want to clarify.

  • Sorry, not sure where to post this, but the recently posted survey is missing the independent bloodline option. Seems like a big oversight imo. I wasn't able to comment there. the-ninth-age.com/community/ne…orting-the-balance-patch/ @VisconteDimezzato

  • Is it legal to choose not to attack, or to attack with fewer than all the allowed attacks in close combat? Either melee or special (like stomp) attacks? Someone decided not to attack my skeletons once so he could get more combat res on the next turn's charge, but it doesn't seem legit.

    I think technically you are enchanting your Heavy Armour and getting the Kraken's Hide additionally, since the Hide doesn't replace the Heavy Armour.

  • Very nice report and lovely armies. Keep it up! The pictures are bit blurry - is it the low lighting in the club or the compression for the site?

    Your list is very interesting. I find the 8 bat swarms insane (and cool). They must be so unwieldy and difficult to place if you don't have a good chaff opportunity on turn 1. I noticed the list is illegal though: The magical heirloom and necro staff are dominant items, so the necro can't have both. Looking forward to seeing more

  • Quote from KhaN9292: “No you do not do ”double” wounds. If you fight elven spearmen you only do 1 wound per model as they only got 1 wound. If you fight standard size characters with more than 1 wound the multiple wounds 2 come into effect. There are SOME rank n file standard size models with more than 1 wound but WoDG Chosen is the only example i can think of. ” Other examples are phantom hosts and vampire knights.

  • That is... interesting. It could be a bestial bulk vampire if it fits on a 40x40 base.
