"of it" is my addition, as an example that the difference between writing bad, ambiguous rules and concise, clear ones is often as little as four letters.

I have big reasons to believe Age of Sigmar is not a way to shelve fantasy. Actually one big reason. https://m2.behance.net/rendition/pm/27758909/disp/254953fdbdd15da651f6e74e4be70c5b.jpg If they shelve Age of Sigmar, that guy stays there for who knows how long making people wonder what the hell it ...

Figured I'll see what I can make for AoS (not that I have anyone willing to give it a try in my area) that is competitive (or at least appears to be) My goal is to fit within 12 scrolls (seems to be thrown around) and no more than 100 wounds total (like with scrolls) First, shooting is amazing in Ao...

I have a theory. They have released Age of Sigmar, replacing Fantasy Give them a year, maybe two, they will release Age of... the Emperor? The rules will be identical to Age of Sigmar and allow for cross use of both 40k and Fantasy miniatures. Thus a single system, a complete massacre of decades of ...

I disagree, Icon Hack. Rule should be written in such a way that there is only one way to read it. Interpretations have place in prose, not rules. Noxious Breath: In your shooting phase, a Black Dragon can belch forth a cloud of noxious gas. If it does so, pick a target unit that is visible to it, a...

And you are still limited to a single command ability per Hero Phase (which is actually super ambiguous in the rules but that's not a surprise).

As well as making your character a juicy prime target.

you change a result on the screaming bell table.

If you replace "result" with "top face" you have a completely different rule

The rule for both models talks about "result" and Kairos can change any "result" to any other "result". There are no restrictions in place.

The point is, only a general can use their command ability, it is useless for all non-general characters. if your general is on their last wound, and in danger, it is often more beneficial to usurp their power with a healthier master, who will take over their command ability (as well as retain their...

I'm sorry The Mattler, but you are dead wrong. There is nothing cerebral or tactical about "one upping" your opponent by countering his every deployment. All you need to do is put down a similar (or better, the same) unit at 132% the number of models so you never reach the magical 33% sudd...

Shooting is king. Simple, hitting takes no modifiers, wounding doesn't care what the target is, close combat has limited range. Put down a line of crossbows, supported by reapers, a wizard or two and a general to lead your force. Maybe a shock unit to countercharge. Then have a boring "game"

If you're enjoying AoS, great for you.

Now try to play at least semi-competitively, face Screaming Bell and Kairos or a single scarab swarm and insta lose with no chance to win.

Screaming Bell + Kairos.

Thankfully it's more than just 3 results ;)
It's 2 + misfire and
misfire + 2
misfire + 4
misfire + 6
misfire + 8
misfire + 10
misfire + misfire

Thanks to the fact that first misfire stops the second roll from happening. (short of rerolls etc.)

Forcing characters to fight in assaults would already solve most of the problems. Most building deathstars are filled with rather fragile characters. The above described unit would have to place. BSB 3 wizards Alarielle Teclis lvl 4 death mage and 3 archers into assault parties. How long do you thin...

Main issue with the tower is the building rules. After every round of combat the assaulting unit would get pushed back just go get peppered by more arrows while the defending unit is steadfast on Ld10 with re-roll and never have to select their vital characters to for assault parties. There simply i...

Monstrous arcanum monsters tend to be used as scrolls of binding monsters. Which means unless otherwise specified, they come out of special allowance.

He didn't dicdiscover any "lost" techniques either

For only one point more you gain Stubborn, 2 points higher save vs shooting, Forest Strider (of questionable usefulness) and access to a fantastic magic banner. You lose KB and a point of Ld. To me, Stubborn otweighs the point of Ld, KB and Forest Strider are both kind of sameish (useless most of th...

Current changes with the ET:K all but invalidate my work (what a shame...) but as a quick thought: ET:K magic makes Lore of Undeath useful for wizards other than Nagash/Mortarchs thanks to the ability to spam spells and increased power dice pool (as well as access to all spells regardless of level) ...
