These rules for this game are ass and true scale is a cancer.
Why is GW still supporting it?

How are they shit?
For a skirmish game it doesn't lend itself to small troop interactions (except heroes) since everything is priced like in warhammer and combat works in such a way getting through 3 dudes stabbing each other takes the same amount of time it does to get through a single larger combat in 40k.
True scale is tiny, flimsy, and just doesn't look good.
Everything is just wrong.

What the fuck do you think 'skirmish game' means?

>> No.47496745

>>47496722
Small number of units each doing several things, not watered down 40k.

>> No.47497367

>>47496745
Most skirmish games are small groups of models, usually each working in separation somehow. Games like Infinity, Malifaux, LotRSBG, Deadzone, and such have individual models acting on their own, while some games like Warmahordes and 40k, while pushing it, have small units with each model still acting semi-autonomously. This has nothing to do with what an actual skirmish is defined as, this is what skirmish games are.

whose idea was to make these not to scale with whf? did they not want to sell extra models?

The deal they had with New Line Cinema. Hell, they used to not be able to show conversions in White Dwarf that mixed lines.

It's better that they didn't. True scale means you can mix in guys from historical ranges, and hamfisted hobbits would look retarded.

I genuinely don't understand your reasoning.

You genuinely prefer the shithouse, back-compatibility driven monkeyhanded bobbleheads?

It means the game is too fucking slow for all the models expected to be fielded (and you better have numbers if you don't to die).
With warbands forcing squads it really is just a knock-off 40k.
And yes, heroic scale looks better.

>> No.47498935

>>47498245
I much prefer true scale like Lotr or Infinity to cartoons like 40k or WM.

>> No.47501966

So wait, you think customizing is choosing from a pre-approved selection of parts and assembling by the numbers? You poor man.

Customization isn't building an ikea kit. Cut arms and reposition them with wire joints. Sculpt new cloth from putty. Add hair, plasticard shields and weapons, belts and buckles. Customization is scary, but with some patience you can have truly unique dudes.

I'm sorry, you what? True scale always looks better than heroic scale, across the board. Just look at all of the 40k true scale conversions.

Nope.
Also, they should support LotR and Hobbit for a 5 years more, if I remember correct.
