Imagine the stuff GW could have done if they went to NOTasia

This is the worst Age of Sigmar has done.

Granted, while the kitbashing is wonderful, I think the army suffers from using Bretonnia rules as a base - there's no cannons or crossbows or other things that you normally associate with not!China, let alone all the fantastical shit that was mentioned in bits of lore. Even the mostly-black colorscheme is a little boring, and you could argue the Men-at-Arms base doesn't look very Chinese.

I don't know, the fact that the fanbase hasn't disappeared has given me some hope. Maybe someone will take the disparate bits of lore about Cathay we have and try to make an armybook out of them - and maybe they'll be something beyond straight copying history like some fanbooks do. Besides, think about how people react to every move GW makes - do you think we would really be happy if GW was updating and adding new armies, likely with far less to them than we'd hope?

I play Kings of War but with Warhammer lore.

And with the Kingdoms of Men armylist you could build a very nice Cathay army.

Or do a Nippon army.
With those miniatures it would even be possible:

But still. And 3 books novel series about some drunken master dude traveling Cathay would be pretty cool. Imagine Slaanesh opium dens, fighting Clan Eshin in his homegrounds, Kurgan hordes attacking the Bastion and add all the cool stuff of chinese mythology.

The pictures mentioned the movie Hero, and you could probably include any movie or show set in China - Marco Polo's not bad. You could probably include plenty of kung-fu movies - I remember there being one with the main character timetravelling back to ancient China, though I don't remember the name of it. There's also the Chinese take on Mulan, the 2009 film.

There's probably a lot of literature and myth too, but I don't know much. There's an 'Outlaws of the Marsh' book, but it's a bit of a boring read - the gist of it is a bunch of dudes from various parts of society of become (chivalrous) bandits, fated by heaven to all be together, and some of them have supernatural strength or other abilities and skills. And there's one fight where a ghost intervenes.

It's for the bean-counters, so they know just how well the advertising is working.

Same principle as how you have to sign in to the local facebook page if you want to use your GW store's wifi. They know not every stop at the location results in a purchase, so this gives them additional info about how much foot traffic they're getting.

If you're making a global debuff against all enemy units, I'm assuming this isn't meant to be balanced. In which case, I'd say go hog wild. Make it a constant mortis engine type affect that has a 500m range or something as the forces of evil literally disintegrate when in range of Karl's goodness.

>> No.53665280

I'm not necessarily thinking a passive that hits the whole enemy force or the whole ally force. I'd like for it to be balanced. But something that buffs morale or keeping with the Wind of Heavens theme, increasing missile resistance for Karl's army.

Like Metal Shifting gives a +4% bonus to armor piercing damage. Life-leeching improves wind Recharge rate, smoke and Mirrors increases speed by +6% Life Bloom heals everyone when a spell is cast.

I'm thinking like... +10% missile resistance or... ya know, something that isn't absurd. Just more useful than Roiling Skies (-8 Melee Defense, -6 Missile Parry (with Shield) but only if the enemy is flying) I mean I could just remove the "With Flying" trait and lazy out of it. Lord of Thunder is just an Overcast Urannon's Thunderbolt you don't pay winds for afterall.

>> No.53665465

Roiling Skies variant (Not sure what to do with it, but failing anything, I'll knock off the flying restriction and just have it lower the enemies Melee defense by 8 and their Missile Parry by 6.) - Call it something like... Wind of Azyr

Harmonic Convergence variant (probably just make it Overcast Harmonic Convergence on a cooldown of like 90) call it something like - In Sigmar's Name

Either a self-buff, a summon spell (If there was an unmounted Griffon unit I'd have that) Or a vortex like chain lightning. Essence of Ghal Maraz or something like that.

What miffed me the most tho was that as a setting, Chaos and expecially Archaon and Belacuck were shoehorned so much that it basicaly turned into a "NUH-UH CHAOS WINS LOL GET REKT" fuckfest

I get the feeling of fighting a losing battle, but nobody has fun in playing a game where you cannot win by writer fiat

Warhammer fantasy unfortunally went downhill after Storm of Chaos, when GW wanted to "advance the plot" instead o leaving the setting as it was, listening to all the shitters that don't understand the difference between a videogame storyline and a ttg setting.

They could've fluffed it like a great offensive of the forces of order, taking the fight to the enemy for once, but they just couldn't see that a villain that wins by default is not something enjoyable

I'm not saying that Order should've rekt Chaos, but at least it would've made a significant shift in tone while leaving everything else as it was

Now the same thing is happening to 40k because they want to make a unified game system between the two

that would possibly be true. The mod does a pretty great job at adding varied mechanics and only seems to be lacking pikes right now.

>> No.53670995

Other people are suggesting Estalia as Estalian Conquistadors are appearing in the second game in Lustria.

Could be a decent way to introduce them before the second game. Still hoping for Dogs of War with a mercenary mechanic.

>> No.53671040

If I had to choose between tilea and estalia, I would choose the latter.

A Dog of war mod is actually on the workshop right now and it is basically a good guy horde mod. A Dog of war DLC which doesn't allow you to settle but has massive boosts to sacking and ransoming of prisoners along with permanent military access would be a great way to play the game. We don't have a Good Guy Horde faction yet, which was one of the most fun aspects in attila.

>> No.53671202

I agree with the good guy horde as that would unique and great to play.

I would actually choose Tilea as lore-wise, I think Tilea has no official armies and uses all mercenaries for military business.

I think Estalia is similar except that it has some official military with the Conquistadors. What about the Border Princes? How do they work in terms of mercs and soldiers?

>> No.53671254

border princes is pretty much unknown except that exiled empire lords rule over petty towns and fiefs, and occasional bretonnian lords too. It's basically the wild west of the old world

The benefit of using estalia IMO would be to add morions to the game along with actual pikes. You can use them to create tilean armies rather well. And having some level of grounded non knightly shock cavalry in the form of conquistadors would add to the game.

>> No.53671354

Estalia has very little to differentiate themselves from the Empire really. They have pikemen. That's about it.

Tilea/Dogs of War at least have a certain amount of variety. And they would have 'unique campaign mechanics' as mentioned in the announcement.
Mercenaries would add new content for all the other factions too, which is something also alluded to.

>> No.53671394


My only major gripe was that Bretonnia was left to wallow when it could have been the poster faction for the entire game. They seem to have completely squandered them.

That sounds good, a dlc pack containing Estalia and Tilea.

Tell me what you think /tg/

Two separate but complementary game lines: Warhammer fantasy Battles and Warhammer Fantasy Battles: Eastern Kingdoms

the first, we already know

The second concentrates on the eastern part of the the warhammer world, taking place during the great Ogre invasion, and presents a more over the top/wuxia feeling with crazy magic and more dynamic fighting

Factions are:
Ogre Kingdoms, who are basically the "bridge" between the two games

Cathay, who are basically the high elves of the setting, with their huge dragon emperor and his magic, with legions upon legions of spearmen

Khuresh is basically the Lustria placeholder, allowing you to play lizardmen, but with the addition of human allies/slaves

Nippon is what you expect from a land called nippon. Small fuckawesome units of samurais, big blobs of paesants. basically East's Bretonnia, but with the option to field dismounted knights

Eastern Beastmen, with lion and tigermen instead of goatmen and elephant people instead of minotaurs

Ind, a highly magical race that fields a lot of warrior-priests but have sub-par armor. They are not exactly a "chaos" faction, but have some elite units in common with the eastern beastmen. Their HQ is basically Tiger Mask but also has magic and make extensive use of war beasts

The Hobgoblins, le by hobgobla khan, are the greenskins of this setting. very centered around wolf cavalry, they don't have the animosity problem of orcs&goblins but are a bit squishier than orcs and less numerous than goblins, very good at kiting

Finally, the Raiders of the Great Steppes are the chaos faction, again a cavalry-centered faction, but rides horses instead of wolves, and tend toward a more medium-heavy approach with respectable dismounted units and strong magic options. These guys can be played as chaos marauders in regular warhammer

The system would be more centered about mobility and fast and brutal combat, rather than grueling rank 'n file meatgrinders

>> No.53674965


Sounds good but I would be more inclined to go down the route of enclaves, so that each faction has a base near the other to allow contact. ie, maybe Cathay has a small trading outpost on Albion that would allow them contact with the Old World. Likewise the Empire has it's version of Hong Kong.

Here's my schtick. I'm from 7th edition warhammer and I played bretonnia. Since the people down at the club has started with 9th age I want in on that.
This way I can use my /hwg/ historical models and use for warhammer which I've wanted to get back to for quite some time. I have models from around the turn of the century(from BC to AD) and as such I can't use blackpowder yet. Since I want to start of small I'll just post my 2k points as a starter and if someone ha pointers, that'd be great.

Here's what I'm thinking.

Wizard lvl 2 with alchemy

60 spearmen with a magical banner(FC)

20 supporting archers(or two regiments of 10)

5 electoral cavalry with shield and lance

20 imperial guard with hand weapons and shields only(FC)

5 reiters with shield and light lance

This rounds up to about 2000 points which is comparable to the old 1000 small standard list

It could've been nice to have some mercenary forces or something, but you have a point - it's hard enough explaining how some factions get around to fighting each other, being on opposite sides of the world already.

Oh I see, are you the guy with the Romans?

I think it looks pretty good going by my 8th edition knowledge, all I would suggest is maybe drop to 10 archers, hide the wizard in here and use the points to get more electoral cavalry. When they have shield and lance they don't tend to hit very hard and are sometimes better as an anvil, so 10 would be a better number. 5 is more useful for when they have great weapons and they can hunt enemy war machines.

/twg/ seems to be of the mind its Norsca that's the new playable faction. I'm inclined to agree, since Norsca has alot more units that it can use from both the tabletop, and the lore.

>> No.53678228

It seems weird, since the Norscan tribes are already pretty well fleshed out. They have pretty much everything they need, what more do you need to add? If they were actually including the other WoC tribes - the Hung and the Kurgan - then we could talk, but even then it's not like they have anything mechanically separating them that would require any new content.

Estalia, Tilea or Kislev make more sense because right now they're just Empire clones, which doesn't really match how they are in the lore. Kislev's out because it couldn't benefit TWW:2 players much, so it's either Tilean mercenary regiments or Estalian conquistadors and not!Knights Errant.

>spatial-temporal scope

>factions motivations outside self preservation

many factions were either with simple and counted relations and/or passive; despite warhammer being appreciated for its gritty down to earth fantasy you can't really believe people didn't actually want the other end of the spectrum too; again, looking at what people like about 40k we can see how its timeline and its setting map was treated differently in comparison with fantasy, with an almost endless horizon of possibilities and numerous centuries to explore with what can be called "the present's armoury"; the chaoswank is easy for all to see, turning the setting into a duality of forces + corollary cameos is just bad for what the setting is supposed to be.

unsurprisingly these are the things GW ended up touching with the transition to AoS as it is doing for 40k as well on a lesser scale except for the first, I guess.

really the problem with the new was that it didn't grow on the old but rather in place of it.

Could be a good chance to flesh out the setting...or could just be vague like D&D, equally good for some realmdungeon romp or for someone attempting to create some political skullduggery in Azyrsigmarcity or whatever. I can't see it being 'like WHRP, but AoS.' The RPG and the setting both don't support that.

Bretonnia is slower and not really meant to be graabing lots of territory - it's biggest threat is Norscan raids, and at home there's no serious threat of war - until Mousilion feels tougher and the Wood Elves get mean enough, that is. But the Dwarves and Empire states shouldn't pick on Bretonnia unduly.

You slowly expand by confederating allies and gaining honor by beating up invaders, stretch a helping hand over to Franz when the WoC invade, and pluck some choice territories from the ruins, if you chose. Between Bretonnia and Marienburg, you should have a solid economic and military base - once you thrash enough Norscans or Undead or whatever, you go on a big crusade north or south and that's that. I respect it for loosely aligning with Bretonnia's fluff and feel, choosing honor and glory over conquest and expansion. Even if I feel Bretonnia is a little too free of Beastmen and Waaghs to make sitting around for plenty of turns as fun as it could be.

The initial Orc event is very negative, but once you survive that, most of them are pretty beneficial, or have some trade-off. Could get more experienced knights, or better charges, defensive buffs for peasants or leadership bonuses. Better paladins, or better damsels, better farms or better industry. Sometimes you do have to pick between two negatives, but it's better than some other factions choices where it's 'do you want to pay up, or get punished?' and can be fucked over for too-little funds.

Seriously, I have never seen the Empire go farther north than Carroburg, let alone resettle conquered territory.

40k is so weird. Shooting lasts for like 30 minutes each phase because every unit has 10 different guns and tanks have 32 different weapons to shoot with different profiles.

Sure in fantasy you're rolling 50 dice each close combat but at least theyre all the same profile minus your characters. I get that the whole "fantasy requires too much time to get started" is true for 2000+ point games, but for 1000 point games it's 2 heroes 20 dudes and some special units mostly. It's a big investment but nothing's stopping me from getting into fantasy this late.

>> No.53694175

The only purpose I can see for Kurgan or Hung in addition to Chaos Warriors is having Hung north of Naggaroth in TWW2 or Kurgan in TWW3 if they do the Dark Lands/Kislev/Mountains of Mourn

Hold on, let's take a step back: it clearly says that it's going to be a new race with unique gameplay mechanics, that will benefit both main game and DLC owners.

The new race part makes me think that it's not going to be changing up a currently existing faction - if it is Norscans, it'll have to be a new flavor of them.

It's got to somehow benefit both main-game people and DLC people. My best guess is that it's probably some new main-game faction that somehow also adds benefits to some DLC faction - and what's a better example of that than the Kurgan or Hung? You put them down on the map somewhere as a faction for main game kiddies to play without stepping directly into territory that DLC players already paid for, and the people who can already play WoC get access to elephants or horse archers or whatever to make them feel more like a conglomeration of Chaos forces.

Probably the most mysterious thing is the new gameplay mechanics, since obviously we have nothing to base that off of.

I'd always kind of hoped that they'd make a southern tribe that was almost like the medieval Norse - one that had something of a civilization that would trade and make currency. Maybe to keep it properly grimdark, every Chaos invasion it would be overrun, but eventually it would be resettled by expatriates, or Norscans that barely felt the call of Chaos. Sort of a Norscan mirror between the constant war between the Chaos-held north and the Empire in the south.

Don't pull out right away. You need to give them a little time to do the most damage anyway, just a few seconds. It's not like Medieval 2 where they do all the damage immediately on the charge. Try to tie up the enemy with meatshields or questing knights/grail guardians before you charge with something else, so the enemy is 'distracted.' Sounds obvious, but pull them back in a direction that's free of enemies, and gives them enough distance for another charge. Your knights might be having difficulty breaking away because a few units 'get stuck' among the enemy, due to trying to pull them away at an awkward angle or between units, so you might have to give them the movement order a few times if they seem to be returning to the fight. I believe it's possible to charge/pull away through your own troops, if need be.

Your knights are gonna take losses on pretty much every charge, no way to avoid that. But if you treat them carefully, you can keep them charging till they are in the single digits of units - and I've done that with Knights Errant, not Grail Knights or something you'd expect to last like that. And they really are the powerhouse of the Bret army, where infantry is just alright - you need them to be cycling charges to do the most damage.

I have a lore question. Is Mannfred Vlads biological son? One wiki says he isn't just adopted. The other says he is.
In Total war warhammer if Vlad and Mannfred engage in diplomacy with eachother Vlad might say he is mannfreds "rightful father".

And I think having mannfred be Vlads son would explain why they have a special relationship they don't have with the rest of the von Carstein.

So what is it?

>> No.53711137

Vampires can't make babby.

They consider family lineage to be who turned you into a vampire...sometimes, basically anytime they don't want a romantic relationship. Mannfred and Konrad were both turned by Vlad directly. But so were others we never heard about, possibly the guys that Konrad fought against after Vlad died.

Basically its a plot hole, people write it however they want. Mannfred being Vlad and Isabella's "son" works for maximum pottery even though that makes Isabella Vlad's "daughter" and Neferata every vampire's mom/grandma/(x great)grandma.
