    Would you be willing to wait for the Main feedback thread om these Chaps?

  • Quote from KeyserSoze: “Did you just assume the damsel's gender? ” Good try, but the dictionary is pretty clear here And whats the problem? There’s no discrimination (allowed to join same units as men) they get to drive (warhorse option) and theres nothing to suggest they are paid less

  • Quote from Grouchy Badger: “Quote from Extraordinary Legionnaire: “I think the wraith could be fixed with a cheap magic weapon, designed specifically for the wraith. I came up with the following to benefit the wraith specifically: Hand weapon, paired weapons or great weapon: 25 points (recommended). The bearer's OS is set to 4. The bearer gains +2 attacks. I also think this enchantment would be useful on a Barrow King, Courtier (Lamia, Strigoi), any Nosferatu vampire But yeah, basic premise is t…

  • Quote from Fnarrr: “The defences shouldnt be conditional, it would result in people not wanting to commit to combat. Plus, the protean magic spell set + HbE hereditary alreary does defence anyway. The charge idea CAN work with offensive aspects (+1 attack?) to encourage frontline-ness. While this is conceptually cool though, it may be really, really bad design as a game mechanic. Its a win-more thing (which is swingy and apparently the root of all HbE problems as it is already). You get in comba…

  • I don't play Ghasts myself, but how big of a deal is losing the potential for 4++ Fortitude from Cadaver Wagons for those that play them?

  • Hey guys The third iteration of the big community feedback is .. the Fell Wraith. 75% of respondents voted it "cost-inefficient". In the end I'll present a complete community feedback to RT 1. As a rule don't expect big changes to happen until FAB. Points changes and maybe the odd change in one stat or another may happen, but anything bigger than that is not planned (even if the scope of an update sometimes does expand...) 2. I won't lie to you. Everything suggested here will be brought to the h…

  • Quote from supermercado08: “Yeah but you are still throwing away 800 or so points if they have divination magic or a cannon. That is way to many lists that you will be playing at a pretty large deficit ” Not a big deal Before the problem was that my Zombie Dragon Rider had to also be used to keep the army moving. And doing and getting him to good position proved tricky (beyond the whole crumble problem). Unless I'm a complete monkey the enemy should max have one turn in which to try and kill him

  • Quote from Gajal: “I think it s because it s possible to take a count on dragon without made him the general. ” Quite... and yeah I know the rule isnt THAT new no more

  • Quote from Adam: “Quote from Giladis: “Pharaoh, Vampire Count (other), Elf Prince (Dread, Highborn, Sylvan), Dwarf King, Infernal Overlord ” So if HBE characters are supposed to be on par with DE characters and DE will add synergies to units while HBE will not then something is seriously wrong with this design. ” And Sylvan Characters which don't offer synergy and doesn't have DI10 is too... Don't put too much into any tier ranking. And that's before we consider all those little things like cost…

  • Quote from Grouchy Badger: “How the hell do we make this character viable? Why cant he get Chilling Grasp back? ” I'll be launching the discussion on this fellow (think he'll be number 7/15 or so) as part of the current "series"

    Heh Right now (I run 5000 points lists mostly) 35 Swordskellies (pushing a Court) with Legion Standard 50 Halberdiers with Banner of Relentless Company If non-Independent fill up the remainder with Bat Swarms and a unit Dire Wolves I rarely bother changing this setup... Your way looks amusing, but I'm not a big fan of clumping

  • BoTD player since painting my first skelly! I really can't bring myself to play Lamia, Strigoi or Nosferatu for aesthetic/fluff reasons and the revamped Black Coach killed any sane reason to play VonKs (which I was doing to vary my lists a bit) I simply love the current BOTD rules with Weaponmaster/buy the weapons you want. Seems so appropriate for this martial order of vampires to value honest steel over magical gadgets. I remember a quote about Abhorash in some GW novel "it was a plain blade, …

  • Quote from Adam: “Quote from Wesser: “In case of the MOCT he's easy-mode because you can combine BSB/magic. Why not simply disallow MOCT from being BsB similar to why it was done with the SE Pathfinder kindred? The MOCT can still be the General if you want to go budget on characters. ” Very smart, just add unconditional flaming and restrict use of shield and we have great fix :). Irony aside "fixing by restricting" doesn't really work majority of the time, it just uncovers other problems that ca…

  • Quote from Masamune88: “ It's popular because it works, thematically, in pricing and in viability. How about making the other honours just as useful, or woe forbid, make the vanilla characters actually worth their salt. ” I think the solution is to differentiate the benefits of the various honours a bit more. In case of the MOCT he's easy-mode because you can combine BSB/magic. Why not simply disallow MOCT from being BsB similar to why it was done with the SE Pathfinder kindred? The MOCT can sti…

  • Assassins - How?

    Wesser - - Homebrew 9th Age

    Post

    Personally I'd just make a new version of "Hidden". "While in a unit the model with this special rule may not be targeted or assigned hits from shooting, magic or close combat until one of the following applies: 1. The model is the last model in the unit (no counting other characters) 2. The model makes an attack (shooting or close combat) of it's own Nothing spectacular (especially since assassins have such high agility they usually attack first in any CC, but it means they can't be sniped out …

    Obviously Open Terrain is included under "Terrain Features" is simply a mistake. Open Terrain is terrain, but not a feature and everywhere in the book ("Building a Battlefield" and "King of the Hill" for example) this is alluded to

  • Quote from Little Joe: “6UYsibj.jpg 12 done to have 96 archers now. ” Good good, although to be really committed surely you need 96 of each sub-race of goblins fully painted?

  • Quote from Vamp87: “Give it two rules instead of the current fortitude thing: 1) Every time a friendly wizard within 12" casts a spell the Cadaver Wagon may select one unit within 6" to receive fortitude(+1,max{5+}) until the start of your next friendly magic phase. A unit may only be affected by this once per turn, unless they are standard height in which case they may be affected twice each turn. 2) Every standard height unit without vampiric and within 12" receives +1 to their evoked characte…

  • Quote from Mikael.K: “Quote from Wesser: “Quote from Mikael.K: “What does VC opponents usually point out to be the strong parts of our army? ” Mostly its just generic "VC is easy" or "VC is OP". People generally seems to think huge generalizations are self-explanatory.The only concrete thing is complaints about Arise-spam. We should probably leave that whole discussion for another thread ” But if they dont have anything concrete to produce, why is there a need for nerfs? VC march bubble really h…
