Re: 9th Age v .99 feedback

Yeah, I honestly don't get the cost of some of the dwarf infantry or even skaven infantry, look at vermin guard (15 guys at 85) and greybeards (10 guys is 85). Vermin guard can still get a 50 point banner. In the end, I doubt you'll find much sympathy, so many people are utterly convinced our book i...

Re: 9th Age v .99 feedback

Yeah ld 8 isn't so hot. The dwarf book looks pretty interesting, their crowd-surfing midget king in a unit with +1 move banner is pretty good, it can march 12 and is 4+3d6 on the charge combining with their choppa rule. I suppose they can't spam their war machines but they are still the very reliabl...

Re: 9th Age v .99 feedback

Well, I'm not sure we are finished with the nerf bat yet but I think the army will probably be ok. I think it really depends on your local scene on what is most effective and how willing you are to try different things to be successful. There was some early feedback posted here: m Ok only 16 guys bu...

Re: NEW YEAR PAINTING CHALLENGE

More impressive stuff! Great work. I love the fleetmaster model, he seems so over the top in details but somehow manages to bring it together. I have the same problem with some models, I can't paint them if they are fully assembled, I just can't do it, too hard to get at certain places. If next mont...

I think it is up to you how you do it, either way works for me. As to his video, firstly if that steam tank is 'garbage' then I have an army of garbage But yes, I intend to repaint all my poor paint attempts (doing corsairs right now).

Re: Theory - Computing unit decay and return damage

That was pretty cool. I think that could give a pretty good insight into how good certain units really are. Not sure excel can really do something along those lines but you can use a computer algebra system to do the polynomial manipulations, (maxima is free but a bit clunky: m) Or you may be able t...

Re: Painting in the New Year!

I would be up for something, although with my work I can be a bit unreliable. I'd probably pass on terrain making but some kind of mini painting I could at least throw my ring in the hat.

Re: 9th Age 2400 list

It looks pretty doable to me. Since you asked for feedback, here are a couple of biased suggestions. First up is the L2 with CoT=cloak of twilight? if so would be 50 points, so couldn't have dispel scroll on here as well. Find room for Wand of stability. It gives you a very powerful dispelling advan...

There is a lot of scouting out there now. I'm not sure you can be sure of a vanguard anymore. Also if you have I assume at least 2 combat characters in the corsairs (fleetmaster + bsb) you are losing the attacks of the corsairs, wouldn't spearmen be better since they come with AP 1 now (have lethal ...

If anyone's read Joe Abercrombie's Best Served Cold , Monza Murcatto would make the basis of a good Dark Elf character, IMO.

Maybe a strong willed Shade woman with questionable loyalty to the Witch King? She could be a renegade (even more than most shades) with she and her band being hunted by the "rightful" rulers of Naggaroth (or wherever we are now), but they can never seem to catch her. She'd be mostly for ...
