  1. I would disagree with you on why people are bashing the figures. We are not bashing the breasts. We are bashing the removal of armor for larger breasts than the art suggested. I understand you feel like you are being attacked, but we wanted seriously armored female Giants. The art had that. I flat out love the quilted armor covered by a tunic on the Ranger, and I thought there would be actual steel over the chest of the knight. Nope. It looks like the knight armored her knees up with layered steel then found a leather top to go over her steel stomach armor. This is just stupid, and insulting. I am sure that it was not intended to be insulting, but when they presented it as being in response to all the standing, or leaning silk wearing non-warrior giantesses, versus some dynamic, armored, badass male giants that have come out recently, then turn in these after taking everybody's money people are going to feel stupid and insulted. I don't know about you but I feel really stupid right now. My only recourse was I had been going to buy into the Darkreach expansion soon. I will not be doing that. Most of the figures I like are art I do not trust Reaper to make me feel stupid again so I will hold onto my money. That and these posts are the limit of my power and I will continue to exercise that power for as long as I wish.
  2. I haven't posted here in a while but I was actually majorly disappointed by the Frost Giants and had to say something. Why? Why would things be added to the figures like 3 cup sizes and a horrible looking cloth boob covering on a female armored figure? The artwork is EXACTLY what was wanted and cheered during the kickstarter. The figures in the art look strong, svelte, and compact. These appear considerably larger in many aspects and their outfits look more like corsets than armor. This is not how I thought they would turn out. They are still nice figures but more like warrior mothers than Rangers on the prowl. On the other hand I think other than the bad scabbard location, that the Demon queen is Better than the art. She looks more uncomprimising, more severe, more ready to begin some serious butchery on the ones that stand in her way. I love a bit of character coming through just from good facial features and posing. Great job! Maybe I will order another set? That actually would be cool. Plus I could tell my daughter that she too uses her left hand and is a devil.

    Warlord - the state of play

    That would be rather interesting to have done. I think making a game that can use the 3D renders that are beginning to take over for mini design and production would be a good use of resources. But I do not know the costs involved and much as I like the game I obviously have no real input on these things.

    Sound Off for CAV II KS!

    So I have been meaning to ask what are the unit sizes this would represent? Regiment? Battalion? Need to play this game with you and have your use just these to see how that would go for you.

    Got what I ordered too. You know I don't mind the mold lines on these too much. Of course they are yours so that may have a small amount to do with it.

    Razig vs Elves & Reptus

    Oh I agree that can definitely be an issue. I absolutely am glad you pointed that out for us. Thanks

    Razig vs Elves & Reptus

    I had not noticed that. I do not think it mattered too much in the overall scheme of things since broodmaster is the only one that did any damage to Razig, but it is good to remember.

    Frost Giants of Icingstead

    To be quite honest the Humans of Icingstead are actually quite effective overall. It might be a bit different to run the giants of Icingstead without giants but your army will still be quite effective.

    Armor of courage on something that has spells, disable, rage, nauseating and a 5 attack will help make him truely frightening to base. Just remember the free action that boosts MAV against his targets, even his!

    So it has been a while since I have posted a list here but I will post an old list that I think is probably a little too good to use against friends so I do not use this type of thing much anymore. Dwarves - 748 pointsTroop 1148 pts King Thorgram Grimsteel 10 pts Armor of Courage 20 pts Spiritual Hammer71 pts Ivar Silverfist15 pts Familiar69 pts Margara Firetongue 15 pts Familiar18x3 (54) pts Halberdier x 322x2 (44) pts Kneebreaker x 2 31 pts Piercer15 pts MusicianTroop 2103 pts Snorri Oathbreaker50 pts Hammer of the Mountain God25 pts Mithril ArmorTroop 33 pts Luck Stone 75 pts Battle Totem It is strong enough in Thorgrams Unit to get his warlord ability to work, Ivar heals, Margara casts barrage on Mighty Snorri and the damage rolls in as the average close combat MAV is a 6 while Snorri with 2 Mighty Ranged, or assassin attacks if something wants to play while Thorgram, is an 8 (9 with armor of courage free inspire) MAV with bludgeon, mighty provoke, and reach that can be further improved with things like the Faction Doctrine, support, and his supporting units are similarly impressive. Just one rolling Murderball and a Bubble of death around Snorri.

    Frost Giants of Icingstead

    Yeah Charge Venomspite he is squishy. Use Nadezhda if he is really problematic to stun him and kill him before he can become a nuisance. Use the sergeant with rush after stunning him and kill him without a whimper. Go for overkill Use Gorak and 2 axemen to charge with a musician and have a totem and a magic weapon, Gorak will have 5 base MAV, +1 for totem, +1 for weapon, +1 Rage, +1 for support. You auto hit and cleave on 4's, and your axemen will hit on 4's which is a 70% chance. You will take a round of fire but if you throw some spear throwers out in front a few inches you might even get a ranged counter attack and block line of sight. Then on your follow up turn you might just have some ranged support yourself.
  12. Looter


    One thing I also remembered is your Iron hide tough check you got a 10. And did you use your luck stone earlier? I remember something but my wife and daughter were occupying me during a round of you and David going after one another.

    I used an Ashcrypt army this week to good effect. The Bondslaves and Bondslave survivors were well worth their cost and even had a few actually missed by attacks. Of course several of them did the pass along damage thing and get used up that way but the Solo's I was running mostly just absorbed damage and died. The bondslaves may have killed more than my onyx golems both did in fact. Ashcrypt was fairly servicable and did not even get attacked before my two opponents killed off one anothers warlords. It was weird. But worked Here is the army (I think) Overlords - 749 pointsTroop 1Ashkrypt, Lichlord of CraclawFamiliar x 2Ranthe, Evangelist of KhardullisBondslave x 11Bondslave Survivor x 3Troop 2CorvusBondslave x 3Bondslave SurvivorTroop 3CorvusBondslave x 3Bondslave SurvivorTroop 4Onyx GolemTroop 5Onyx GolemTroop 6Xailor the DefilerTroop 7Luck Stone
  14. is there a mounted Don Quixote I can place in the saddle here. I would love to have one with a lance fighting Baba Yaga's Hut.
  15. Looter


    I like these armies but I am not too sure about the Vale Swordsmen in army 1, you can probably swap them out entirely for a mix of the Spearmen and Axemen to use them to get support on long Rush attacks for about the same price combined. Also I am not sure if the second army is legal with expansion units in them as mercenaries I thought were only allowed to take original release units. I myself would not have a problem with it as it looks kind of fun to use.

    Sticky Meet-up Spots

    To be honest 200 might be too low, I have found a good size for new players is 500 with some good lists you can print out with the site DarkHorse built Army Builder
  17. Looter


    Most welcome to it and I like them as well. In fact we thought they were all about the most unique part of the faction other than the army wrecking Elemental that is. 1. We would like more units that are distinct to the faction like cavalry units like pony or dog mounted Halflings. 2. Also this faction has a very low average MAV, RAV, and DV average. 3.The Goliath guard figure is one of the easiest to kill units in the game, its DV of 7 means that even a 1 RAV or MAV will hit 50% of the time. A 1 attack should never have an even chance to hit, this figure also has only 1 track. I can honestly say this will never be used in combat. Ever. In fact in MAV Halflings are the lowest in every category except to Tembrithil that has 3 casters, and one ranged elite, two of which have DR/1. 4.There is one unit that has a 13 DV for the faction. 3 other units if you include the alternate Roddy Warlord and Elite have a 12 DV, 2 more units including the other warlord and the most expensive soldier model have an 11 DV. Everything else is lower, some by a lot. In fact in category Halflings are either last or second to last. 5. The one uptake is they are the least expensive faction in the game. But they also do not have a lot of very good units either so maybe more of a wash.

    So using your army builder Dark Horse I built a Halfling army and ran it against Humansquish and David in a 3 front battle. Sir Roderic {Warlord) +Mithril shirt Brave Sir Roddy & Glitter +Magic Weapon Olivia +Familiar 4x Sky Guard 6x Halfling Skirmisher Troop 2 Storm elemental Battle Totem Luck stone It was a pretty thorough butt kicking for my opponents. They weakened each other pretty bad but that is a lot of first strike and I used it to first kill some archers then kill a couple of elites from Dark Reach. While this was going down the Storm elemental was wrecking a Bloodstone force that had taken some lumps from the Dragon Dark reach have. Seriously it took 1 point of damage and did nearly 300 points of straight up kills many of them from chain lightening. We think the Dodge /1 is just too much on the model. I may try it again sometime but have my friends plan for it and see if it is a problem even then. The Roddies actually were not too bad even though first strike on anything is a bit much but they move too fast and we will pull the flying speed down a bit. Other than that there is not much to the halflings though. Pretty lackluster over all definatly an unfinished faction. We will have to test more.

    2017-2018 REAPER LEAGUE Fantasy Football

    And who is this? Although I would have to say if anyone was a chump this week it is this guy.
  21. We need to try and have that huge fight in warlord. I will shoehorn Argent on to a giant base with mossbeard, you can use Rauthuros and Narglauth as maladorn. Maybe get the giant skeleton dragon as a giant skeleton and the zombie dragon as a bone horror. Make people stare at our outrageous game of enormous monsters.
  22. Actually I am liking Argent more than the Traditional Capstone type figure we had been thinking of getting during the kickstarter. Why you ask? Well 2 reasons. 1. I like big Dragons and have few. This will be the first time I get a big dragon that does not have 5 heads. This guy is a nice majestic posed huge dragon that could just look amazing. 2. He is not 60 Dollars. This is huge for me. 60 dollars is 4 or 5 other things in this great kickstarter and just about everything in it is pretty spectacular. So not having a $60 Capstone eating away at all the smaller but still awesome stuff is just fantastic for me. On another note. I like the Morloc cavemen guys but I think some Prehistoric Dwarves to go with the Prehistoric Elves would have been a little more interesting to me. But they still look good.

    Terrible Army Builds

    I would just say I disagree about Po. He is a glass cannon and an interesting spell caster but even for a normal spell caster he is fragile, while the other two are Melee monsters at the height of toughness and with features that can protect them from damage even when they are targets. The other two are better warlords. Even to get the most out of His warlord ability you will need to have more fragile units in concert with him to use the poison function. I also do not like his lists too much, even the special reptus Affliction spell is just magic blowthrough but you have to roll against the often much higher MD value. He is not a bad unit, just not as devastating as the other two can be. Maybe if he had another list this would be different. There are only 19 pike units true, but there are 42 first strike units, and 6 quick strike units. This is 67 units out of 634. More than 10% of all units can kill these literally before they can do anything at all. This is actually a pretty common ability. Plus doing the calculations per DT Pike on soldier units costs 13.43 per track, First Strike 18.27, and Quick Strike is 11.75 for the 2 soldier units that have it. This is not as expensive as the Nagendra themselves are. I will take your word on that since I am completely unfamiliar with the running of the figure myself you are actually the first person that has stated its use to me. This does raise him slightly on the scale of warlords. Your average numbers for Mav includes the 34 Soldier Ranged units and the near universally pitiful MAV they have. If you use just the MAV from Melee units, the Actual MAV average is 4.12, Which is actually raised by 1 soldier unit with range, the icingstead spearmen. The average DV of all soldiers including dodge is still only 9.55 though which functionally means they are perfectly average on MAV. Their DV with Dodge runs from Average 10 to 12 for the Warriors which is average to above average that is nice but they are still around average cost but on a DT basis they are at twice the 14.74 pt average per damage track per figure, which with the figures from above means Pike, and QuickStrike units average up to less than average and First Strike is only a little above average this adds up to is on a per point basis the use you get out of these is below average, all the skill combinations even the ones that are from other figures, and Doctrines add up to average kind of numbers for a unit with below average long term utility. They are glass cannons. They are still useable. This does not mean they are particularly good. If you are using Po I would say you almost have to try and use some of these things just so his WL ability does not go to waste, but other then this one type of build they have to be among the least efficient units in Warlord. Even in the Bad unit game above even terrible goblins were killing them in job lots. Only the spike shell warriors were still playing the last 2 turns, due nearly entirely to their DR/1. Now I will say the AOE/2 Spitter Nagendra can be very effective. The others are something you hold back to try and get a charge on something with before dying messily.

    Dwarfs of Kragmarr

    I have to agree as much first strike as was in that force makes it quite strong. I will have to say I was quite impressed with how fast the Yummies died. The Nalila's were crazy effective with their Rune Weapons turning into Mighty quite often. You have to love the Rune Weapon.
  25. I agree with Sirithiliel. I love this Kickstarter. Probably love it too much as there is a lot I want and very little money for it. But i did see several notes about how DoD was not the capstone. But for pledge dollars on an individual item it was? So I was confused at the end. I was also releived, a $60 item was would have been more than I can cover. But I will still spend a ton of money. That being said I think such unfulfilled promises are weird, and out of character . I take it as a mistake but I wonder about the last 3 days or so. There was a rapid pledge buildup but the kickstarter seemed to actually wind down with some 100k+ goals pushed out but seemed to be a coast to the finish. Much of this I wonder was the kickstarter crash, but still odd.
