  • well then to celebrate tomorrow I'll release a couple more armies in the EW table... sponsored by our dear patrons, who are beasts of generosity : ) (and with some extra help from Kelvenmore's bases, Antohammer's designs, and RHWorldbuilding models!)

  • nice to read this, and ready to answer any curiosity from @LostMaverick and @BigFatMuncher - welcome on board!

    Veil of the Ages - - Essence of War

    thanks for the input we're always looking for ways to make EW more accessible, and it seems like the upcoming FB update will give us a chance to look again at things anyway. i dont think we'll want to freeze charge rolls at 6, because variability in the charge is one of the points that contribute to the "essence" of our game. but im all for streamlining other things, like unit formations, and maybe (if this doesnt clash with variety), why not, ranges too. in any case, just for info, in the patro…

    thats good to know, thanks Villon i assume those are all (basic) (premade) patrol games, right? we were interested in knowing after how many matches a new player might start feeling that the game is getting repetitive and needs variety (i.e. advanced rules and customised rosters from the armylists). are you and the youngsters - ahem - are you youngsters still having reasonable fun with the patrols ?

  • thanks both @Batosai seems offline since a month or so, but I'll gladly contact him if/when he leaves a sign here. w1ndkiller ive sent you a pm, let's see if we manage to organise something!

  • threadomancy! im reviving the thread cos i'll be in Tokyo till xmas, and then again from next year onwards. would love to meet players, join clubs, start clubs and recruit players. is anyone active in the local scene? @w1ndkiller maybe?

    all nice options indeed personally tho id go with the copter even if it's not scoring (like every other single model), i think mobility is very important in EW. sometimes later in the game you can sacrifice it to prevent that "scaletipping" enemy unit from getting into the scoring zone. curious to see what the others would get first too.

  • Quote from Just_Flo: “Would 1st WTC of 2023 be a possibility to meet with her? ” do we have a date & a place ? 22-23 april in herford ? if so: do you think delaying publication of the book till then is a viable idea?

  • looking forward to putting many pics of all your glorious armies in the full colour BRB hardcover version... i do happen to know a photographer who could work for us. excellent skills, loving dedication. she doesnt live in the south tho (more like my area). do we have plans for BeLaMa this year?

    that'd be technically doable, and i guess it would save us an extra rule (always a welcome thing!), but - doesnt that feel like too much of a difference from FB ? - are we happy with an Archer having same Off as a Commander ?

    thanks for raising this i think this relates to the confusion that some players had regarding DE Knights in EW advanced. they have their great weapons baked in the profile, so they end up having no Lightning Reflexes but Agi 6. interestingly, they are the only unit which has lightning reflexes in the basic patrol (without displaying it). but it's also the only unit that doesnt have it written out in the advanced armylist, where all the other units gain it. this could indeed be strange for a FB p…

  • thank you, this is all very useful (and fun!) i feel HE need at least one durable unit, since as you say even the heavily armoured lancers can be taken care of quite easily (Res 3, HP 1, not cheap...). really interested to know more about your thoughts on Reflexes, especially in combination with how we simplified Parry.

    yes it is a single model but you are correct that this could be confusing. in the past we had "on foot". but this doesnt really apply to all cases... who assures me that a DL Harbinger has feet in the first place?! : D any ideas as to how to improve?

  • after all the good stuff contributed by kelvenmore and by idum and kriegschmidt, let's now add... Quote from Blaster: “I know there is a other software out there to play at The 9th Age, but fot those like me that also like some 3D grafics, I create a Table semi-automatized (just deployement and standard maps) to play on Tabletop Simulator. There's some uselful item and also all the magic path deck and flux deck card already avaiable. You can also find a great tool (not mine) that let you organiz…

  • thanks for the feedback Quote from Tonko: “not sure how it'll match up against others though. ” in the game we played yesterday (against the old SA patrol), it didnt feel underpowered. there is a concern, tho. written in this way, Communal Bond only gives Minimised Rolls, so Skinks and Beasts are stuck with their natural Dis 6, and this might be a problem. we're looking into it now, but other ideas or suggestions are always welcome.

  • as for your comments on my ideas: Quote from Axiem: “@Veil of the Ages - What is the impetus for trying to replace the Anurach Archmage with a Tegu foot general in the Basic Patrol? I think this would expose SA weaknesses even more than they are today (i.e. lack of reasonable Ranged threats). I don't agree with that personally. Maybe you can convince me! i like the emergent conclave magic theme as SA specific, especially since we cant have Combined units (for sure not in the Patrol). but it's no…

  • voila, models ready in TTS, and a compact draft for the Patrol: the-ninth-age.com/community/ga…4f2d4161735b210ce154be86c

  • getting ready to playtest something against RHW, still not clear what the Patrol should be. have been thinking on Axiem attempts of including Combined Strength, trying to consider all options. for example: Char P: Tegu Veteran (0-3) - on foot / on Raptor / on Carno Char A: Anurarch (0-1) - in Tegu / on Wardens Core P: Caimans (0-2) - in Skinks / 2x1 / 2x2 Core P: Skinks (0-3) - 6x3 / Hunters / spell A Core A: Tegu (0-3) - 4x3 / 6x4 / spell B Spec P: Spearback (0-2) - in Skinks / 2x1 Spec A: Tyro…

  • sadly that Armylist was way beyond my idea of complexity for EW. so i pruned and i pruned and i pruned... - Armylist Char A - Tegu Veteran (0-3) - foot / Raptor (0-1) / Alpha Carnosaur (0-1) Char B - Anurarch Archmage (0-1) - Closely Guarded / Anurarch Wardens Core A - Caiman Warriors (0-2) with Halberd - 2x1 / 2x2 / + Awaken the Beast Core B - Skink Warriors (0-3) with Shield - 5x3 / Hunters (0-1) / Healing Waters Core C - Tegu Warriors (0-3) with Spears - 4x3 / 6x3 / + Awaken the Beast Spec A …
