Re: Long live WFB!

@Calisson: Where to begin?! I guess I could make a new post somewhere to give some insights to how KoW works... and maybe a battle report (as there is a campaign I'll send a report to soon). The game itself is a lot simpler when it comes to rules, but also a lot more tactics to movements and engagem...

Re: Lord Drakon Battle Reports

Nice battle reps! Too bad I don't play 9th age and don't have any insight to come up with, but I do enjoy reading these reports as they are nicely detailed. I especially love how your personification underperforms so much. It reminds me of when I did it a while back and failed miserably too Keep up ...

Re: Long live WFB!

Nice to see some of the good oldies hanging around here still! Personally I stopped with all WHFB, skipped AoS, didn't go for 9th age, tried a bit of Warmahordes (but found the game to not be for me), and instead went for Kings of War. Finally a game which feels somewhat properly balanced, and even ...

Re: i'm i the only one around here still playing 8th ed.

I'm one of those who has completely left 8th edition unfortunately. I started playing Warmachine & Hordes for a little bit, but decided it wasn't anything for me (I actually found the game to be outright boring). After having a break from fantasy battles, instead playing X-Wing for tournaments (...

Re: Un-Welcome to the Age of Sigmar

If it's a deal-breaker for you, stop playing GW games, since dice rolling a player off the table is the central feature of their game mechanics. It may or may not play as central a role in tabletop games from other companies, but it's ubiquitous in GW products. "Stop playing it"... it's w...

Re: Un-Welcome to the Age of Sigmar

GW has never been good at balance, but AoS is even worse. The thing is... most players who were into WHFB enjoyed the game because it was tactically challenging from small to huge battles and with the communities making the tournament restrictions, it was a joy to play. Rank and file units who had t...

Re: The Sickest Deathstar you can imagine.

Shadestar is quite a lot better once you get the lame banner in it as well. Could easily make quite the deathstar out of such a unit as well, although I rarely go with deathstars now. As mentioned, Malekith on his own is just insane, and I would probably have made some strong core like WE with a hag...

It would be nice and fun to try her in a list with Sisters of Slaughter sometime. That would be really fun, but only if you knew your opponent didn't have much, if any, shooting. Her bonus to dispel helps against magic coming at them, but any BS shooting your opponent has will be turned directly at...

I've managed to bait quite a few frenzied units out of position in the past by just moving into the max charge range and having a lot of shooty units myself... as well as having the nice countercharging units at ready to take advantage of any such situation.

Re: Fluff aside. What does EoT mean for our model range in 9

Right now we will have tons of choices. In 9th edition I believe we won't have 3x of the same choices, but 1x with different options. The more unique units will probably be around still, but Blackguard/Phoenix guard will probably be one choice. Same with Executioners/Swordmasters/White Lions (althou...
