Speaking of the Warhammer Armies Project.

Since most my exposure to WHFB was through Mordheim, I have a hodgepodge of stuff but little coherent to turn into a regular army. I'm considering trying out the unofficial rules for Dogs of War. Are there any notable things I should be aware of? Some stuff looks more exploitable than others (Scorpion Batteries, comboing "The Best Money Can Buy" on certain units, Domingo's Arbalest, etc) and I want to make sure the army isn't too fanwankish.

I'm not saying that it's necessarily nonsensical, but that something akin to the societal changes brought on by the slow fall of the WRE would likely have had to happen for it to develop. This ofc means that it's quite implausible to assume that some of the Norscan states would be feudal.

I'm a little ignorant on this topic, so this is a question rather than an argument: But wasn't Russia Feudal during the middle ages as well? And I didn't think the Roman Empire reached them before the fall

>> No.57158667

The East Roman Empire didn't fall until the late middle ages.

>> No.57158770

Right, but did they extend all the way into Russia? Also, earlier the anon said that the Fall of the Empire is what gave way and was necessary to the rise of Feudalism, so if the Eastern Empire didn't fall until the Late Middle Ages, how could it have given way to Feudalism several hundred years before then?

>> No.57158800

I know next to nothing about russian history but if I'm not mistaken they had alot of connection with western europe before the mongol conquest. For a similar reason Sweden also developed a semi-feudal society. As far as I'm aware Norsca haven't, probaly for reasons of style, been influenced by the Empire (or Bretonnia) in any meaningful way that would affect how they organise their societies.
Ofc, in the end it's all make believe so whatever floats your boat.

>> No.57158801

There was a (sadly derailed and abandoned IMHO) thread a month or so ago about if the Empire was an exaggerated notOttoman Empire instead of NotGermany, due to being the other notable civilization with a love of giant cannons and outrageous hats. It would make a Sylvanian rebellion more plausible in context.

It also suggested making the Blood Dragons the Vampire Counts equivalent of the Assassins, kidnapping the best warriors and tasking them with eliminating trouble targets before being ascended as immortal. So notAlamut instead of Blood Keep.

>> No.57158902

I'm not all that educated on the subject, but Russia did adopt the Orthodox church from the Byzantine. So they did have some kind of respect for their culture and prestige.

If I was Lindybeige and made wild guesses I would probably assume that they viewed the Byzantines as the model for prestige and status. So they would probably want to emulate things from their culture.

>> No.57158993

Remember, Russians got the name of their emperors, Czar, from the Roman title Caesar.
And the Germans of course based the Kaiser off the Latin pronunciation of Caesar. Which was similar, but has a soft S sound, not the Z sound. Kai-ssar.

>> No.57158994

The Eastern Roman Empire (ERE) had centuries of interaction with russia, they even married off one of their princesses to the ruler of Kievan Rus, which I believe was the only time roman royalty married a barbarian.

By the Fall of the Roman Empire I was refering to the fall of the Western Roman Empire (WRE). People are usually eurocentric enough to get that but as a EREboo I can't say that I'm not happy about you not making that assumption.
The situation in the WRE and ERE were quite different. While both had a hard time around the Fall of the WRE the ERE managed to ride out the storm and lasted for about 800 more years.

Believe it or not, HRE is what made Warhammer.

It was an aesthetic nobody had done in fantasy. Hell, fantasy in general hadn’t been done realistically, it was mostly Arthurian or mystically alien. Warhamner boomed because it drew in people sick of the generic as well as the historical fans.

Warhammer already has a medieval expy for most European groups other than British and Roman. Romans just never existed for some reason with Tilea based on Empire rather than the other way around, and Albion is in pre-bronze age. The other Germanic root countries are just generic Chaos vikings.

>> No.57159075

Yes, that is accurate. Russian court customs remained Byzantine until Peter the Great, and the Russians claimed to be the "Third Rome" until the fall of the Tsar.

Just a nitpick, but I really don't like that particular spelling of Tsar. It's probably more accurate from a linguistic standpoint, but it's not very close to the phonetic spelling. I prefer the Tsar spelling, because the letter at the beginning of the word is actually pronounced "ts", with the t not being silent. It's the same letter you'd see at the end of a word like "molodyets."

>> No.57159096

I agree, I just used the Old spelling to highlight the connection to the Roman title.

To put it simply, Rissua was really slow getting going. They had a shitload of trade princes ruling everything, and were damn near Arabian in havibg trade hubs surrounded by dirt poor tribals.

The trade princes united when faced by the growing power of everyone else, and tried to decide who to copy. They told the Muslims and Eastern Orthodox they’d hold essentially an auction for the souls of Russia, and the EO bid higher so the Muslims got pissed and invaded. This forced Russians to unite militarily, going from unofficial city states into being a united but fractious monarchy. This also influenced the Muslims in regards to Iberia, essentially creating the kebab/cross animosity and the odd history of Spain.

it still hasn't be done justice apart from warhammer.

It's kinda poetic that total war's oldest reviews are most notable in mentioning that it is a fresh spin on a genre that is beginning to get stale (RTS) and warhammer was the same for fantasy humans. It is only poetic that Warhammer fantasy will be entombed in a digital sarcophagus where the person at the center of the screen is the emperor of the !HRE

>> No.57159227

To east europe the ERE was the cultural hegemon. Some of the more crafty of the states tried to play out the franks against the ERE to maximise their own gains.

The swedish word for emperor, 'kejsare', is also derivative of Caesar. 'Emperor' meanwhile comes from the title of 'Imperator' which roughly means Commander.
Fun fact: Rome didn't officially have an emperor before the late third century. Up untill then imperial power was actually made up out of a myriad of republican titles which the 'emperor' held. Thus, the ruler of the roman empire during this era were refered to as Princep, i.e 'The First (of equals)' which is where we get the title prince from.

To be fair, the Empire being the HRE only came into being in 3rd edition. 2nd Edition Empire was at the same high medieval level as Bretonnia usually is. The Tragedy of McDeath has East Albion at around the same level, which is unsurprising since it's a Shakespearian pastiche played on a table.

That's not too hard with knights - just have to split the heraldries roughly evenly - but what do I do with the Men-at-Arms and Bowmen? Should I mix them too, or should one be L'Anguille an the other be Gisoreux?

Skaven player here. 2.5k games require alot. But it also depends how your playing. You want to push a screaming bell? 90 rats in that unit alone or the thing won't move after the first volley. Skaven run in big numbers because they generally squish with a stiff breeze. Leadership is bad so you need the strength in numbers rule, and let's not forget you can fire into your own slaves, so sometimes you want a huge tarpit to keep that deathstar from moving while you lob shit into them. It's very common to run blocks at 30+. Everything else (war machines, special, rares) are typical, don't need alot. But you will need a fuck ton of clan rats (I don't have different models for slaves really, I just designate it before game). Prepare to hate your life painting them.

I thought they just become numb to everything.

>> No.57166318

Slaanesh is the only one with an ironic hell punishment. When two Daemonettes disobeyed him and took a Hellflayer on a pleasure ride instead of tending his garden with it, he turned them to stone and faced them forever away from his realm and facing the rest of the Warp so they can never move or look on his glory. Normally inactivity and boredom makes a Daemonette waste away like they are starving to death, but as stone statues they're eternally cursed to stare at the boring parts of the Warp forever.

Khorne just kills you, or takes away your higher faculties. Tzeentch makes everyone crippled and unable to comprehend anything anyway since paranoia and being the only true puppet master leading the ignorant that think they are top dogs is kind of his thing.

Nurgle doesn't seem to punish anyone. The only lore I've read where he does is after the Glottkin failed him in End Times he turned them into flies then trapped them in a jar on his shelf. They came back for AoS back in their original forms, so it was just a time-out.

For all four other than Nurgle, its about becoming a broken nobody. Slaanesh is all about pride in Fantasy, Khorne is a warlord thug, Tzeentch is about being a puppetmaster who puppets puppetmasters including himself.

Nurgle is an abusive spouse who hurts you untill you love him. If he sends a plague your way you can either try to ride it out, fall to it or ask Nurgle for deliverence from it in exchange for servitude.

So I play dark elves and have been wanting to use my dread lord on black dragon model for a while now but my main opponent plays empire. He generally runs a large block of 40 or so spearmen/halberdiers supported by great swords an arch lector, steam tank and knights, as well as cannons and a few hand gunners. The dread lord generally gets shot down early due to cannon fire and so I generally avoid taking him.
What advice do you have to make him viable? I usually bring a large amount of dark shards with shields due to their versatility and use them in units of 10-20 and try to use cold one knights but they too get shoot down by cannons or end up being killed by his knights due to their superior armor save. ( Any advice on how to use them more effectively would be appreciated as I love the models as they were the first ones I got and the reason I started collecting dark elves)
Any general advice would be appreciated as well on how to beat this tactic, the black dragon is not a must.

What I generally do is try to run a shield with my dark riders, line them up in single file to block LOS to my main units to try to give them cover to advance. I do try to maneuver as much as possible to get into the right positions for charges, this worked well when my opponent was less experienced but he has been using this tactic long enough that he has perfected it. I find it difficult to get my units to pack enough punch to deal with his buffed up infantry block fast enough, and his hand gunners and artillery pack enough of a punch that getting into a fire fight is not worth it considering my dark shards are more expensive and the trade off is not worth it. Magic is unreliable and it seems the only thing that stops allows me to stay competitive is my heavy infantry (Executioners usually, sometimes I take black guard) holding firm but sometimes I can't save them from being to to pieces by his ranged component. My hydra is the other major equalizer but when he gets the chance he tries to focus fire it down with his cannon.
I also tend to hang back in the opening stages of the battle trying to protect my troops and get soften up his army with my dark shards. Should I just give that up and try to rush in?

Not him, but I can see someone summoning daemons out of utility rather than worship. Otherworldly soldiers and monsters can be very useful for murdering people. However, I'm new to the lore in general and I could be wrong.

>> No.57193301

There is no such thing in warhammer as summoning demons without repercussions
To have the power to summon them you need to study demonic lore, strike bargains with them and most of all make it worth their time because if you by chance you try and summon a demon it will either kill you or not show up at all.
It's clear that Malekith thinks he is in control and summons them at his will but the mere fact that he made sacrifices to appease slaanesh after pissing him off rather than simply tell him to suck it up is a clear indicator on who's actually the boss

>> No.57193311

I think it goes against the character of the dark elves to reduce them to worshiping chaos gods. It seems more likely to me they would certainly use the power they have to their advantage, but the idea of pledging themselves to powers that also have human devotees is unlikely. The cult of pleasure is different in that they are in it just for the sex n stuff.

>> No.57193340

It's actually the opposite. It's perfectly coherent with the dark elves' saturday morning cartoon villain attitude to think that they are superior to something and are just using it without realising it's them who are on the bad end if the bargain

>> No.57193367

Oh yeah I agree with that, I just wouldn't consider them "worshiping" the gods in a traditional sense, as a few people here are saying. Using chaos power and deluding themselves into thinking they are in control is one thing, outright reverence is another.

This hasn't been stated anywhere. Slannesh is still missing and the only mention of Morathi was that exact text.

Slaanesh has been kidnapped by Tyrion and Malekith after getting too fat on aelf souls during the End Times.

Slaanesh' symbol is still the same in the part that lists it as one of the members of the Ruinous Powers.

During the Age of Myth most gods were part of The Pantheon, including Grungnir, Grimnir(before he died like a chump), Alarielle, Malerion, Tyrion, Teclis, Nagash, Gorkamorka and many others demigods, gods and godbeasts. Morathi was under Sigmar according to that text but we don't know what was up with her besides that. We don't even know if she was a god or not.

Slaanesh's Daemons are still part of Chaos, but are unaligned. Like Furies.

That symbol isn't Morathi, that was just a theory until the reveal it was Horned Rat. That's supposed to be his horns.

Slaanesh didn't get fat on "Aelf" souls you fucking piece of garbage, he got fat on Elf souls. "Aelves" are post-AoS knife-ears.

It's not that they are forbidden, but they don't have the Grail chapels, the damsels, the chivalry so they can pray before battle. It's like all the nobility is a lay member of the cult in a way, but the commoners still worship even if they can only do so much. And the nobles still respect the rest of the pantheon to - la'Masiontaal Abbey, man.

That's cute.

But for one, Mally's horns point up and thanks to the fact that those symbols are rotated on the base to point downwards, its actually pointing down. So unless GW was clever enough to make Malekith look like The Hanged Man from classic Tarot cards for symbolism of some kind, then its a no.

Also, they confirmed its Horned Rat at point blank. There's nothing vague about it, the fourth Chaos God is now Horned Rat. Full stop.

I don't know what part of "the cult of pleasure is forbidden" is so difficult for you to understand. 6th era lore, the gold standard around here, is not ambiguous on this point. Neither is material like the Malus Darkblade stories. You wanna worship Chaos as a dark elf, you better be too powerful to touch or know how to sneak around.

>> No.57194764

That literally describes the entirety of being a Dark Elf.

That's why it doesn't matter how "forbidden" it is. Dark Elves already die in huge droves for offending Malekith or because it was his whim, and they already have the worst possible fates as punishment simply for the natural backstabbery required to be powerful AKA not on the chopping block for random sacrificing/enslavement.

Not to mention that there's a large army that's entirely centered around the Dark Elves, giving it the same feel of importance as the Slayer Cult army had.

Potentially, but this is something the Cult of Khaine exists to root out. Elves aren't so stupid as to be fooled by mystery cults, either.

This guy has it right, more or less. Describing druchii as "Chaos worshipers" is wrong. Some of them DO worship Chaos. Some of them "use" (and are in turn used by) the Chaos gods and their daemons. Officially, doing either of these things gets you disemboweled while a witch elf has an orgasm due to your death rattle. Certainly, though, the pleasure cult has always enjoyed a great deal of power among the druchii, owing mostly to Morathi being untouchable.

Worth noting Storm of Chaos ended on Hellebron and Morathi about to lead a civil war against one another's factions while Malekith was busy limping home, butthurt, from his latest humiliating defeat at the Chad Tyrion and the Virgin Teclis.

you are literally retarded. the symbols are oriented with "up" towards the center of the circle. Pic is the horned rat symbol, looks nothing like it.

Too bad GW confirmed that the symbol is Horned Rat, and that Malekith is on the side of non-Alarielle Elves which is sort of an absentee on the side of good.

I mean, seriously. You're trying to tie WFB lore into AoS lore. The two are incompatible.

AoS lore is the tail end of the WFB retcons and cannot be divorced from it. WFB lore is the old universe. Its like Disney Star Wars VS pre-Disney EU canon. You can't talk about Rey when discussing Kyle Katarn, you can't cite the Knights Of Ren when talking about the Fel Empire.

WFB ends with Chaos Elves getting their shit pushed in by the Slann over the fate of not!England. Skaven also get their teeth kicked in, but they kill Sigmar's reincarnation Valten in revenge.
