>> No.74560752

For no reason in particular I figured I'd run down the list of Von Carstein vampires ever who were at some point killed or pointedly fucked over by Mannfred. In more or less chronological order. An * next to their name means it was added in 8th edition or the End Times, for those who care.

>Vlad von Carstein
Mannfred orchestrated the theft of his ring.

>Fritz von Carstein
Mannfred's spy assassinated him.

>Pieter von Carstein & an unspecified number of vampiric lieutenants
Mannfred is thought to have orchestrated their assassination by witch hunter Helmut van Hal.

>Konrad von Carstein
Mannfred exacerbated his madness and undermined his reign and war effort.

Mannfred killed her first upon returning to Castle Drakenhof.

>Constantin von Carstein
Mannfred killed him second upon returning to Castle Drakenhof.

>an unspecified number of rival Von Carsteins*
Mannfred killed them upon returning to Sylvania and gathered their ashes to forge the Armour of Templehof.

>the three Carstein Devils*
Mannfred captured and tortured them until they became vargheists, upon which he enslaved them.

>Emmanuelle von Templehof*
Mannfred desecrated her casket in Templehof despite the protestations of her restless spirit.

>Tomas von Carstein*
Mannfred crushed his body and ordered him executed.

>Markos von Carstein*
Mannfred defeated him in a duel and executed him.

>Gunther von Grecht*
Mannfred left him to die on the battlefield, suspecting him of being a spy.

No, the mod has these little "troop type points", where you can only have something like 8 special points, four rare points, and unlimited troop points. It's rather balanced nicely since you see High Elves with spearmen and archers instead of nothing but shadow warriors and whatnot. Empire armies got spearmen and crossbowmen out the wazoo.

the game was designed with the intent of being palyed with normal mode. Hard mode is a meme put up with by artificial difficulty. Its not won by superior tactics or nation management, its won by save-scumming and corner camp like a WAACfag bitch.

It is, just not in the way you want. You do need to be more optimised with economy and public order on higher difficulties due to increased upkeep and public order penalty, and the increased difficulty in battles does require better tactics.

To be fair "deploy far away and shoot the fucker" is pretty TT and lore accurate to how dwarves fight.

>> No.74566100

Actually, outside of how many ironbreakers and organ guns they use, dwarven armies are fairly lore friendly.

Vampires are also pretty lore friendly in terms of composition, even if I cant remember a battle where the entire undead horde crammed itself into a small space to make a literal ball of skeletons.

Are there any other factions that are lore friendly in terms of your stack comp? Maybe bestigor spam khazrak? shadow walker alith anar?

>> No.74566770

Normal mode is the best one to play on. Not because of army spam or whatever, but because you don't get artificial penalties to public order and your enemies don't get all sorts of bonuses. You can actually play the game and make use of multiple strategies instead of having a Hero causing a revolt in an enemy province be too unfeasible, or having to constantly waste money on armies just sitting around in your own lands so public order doesn't go down.

Normal is a mode where you literally cant lose even if youre literally braindead, playing on anything less than hard is a waste of time, may as well save yourself the effort and just watch the campaign victory screen.

Wow, its almost like its a mechanic you actually have to somewhat think about instead of just expanding as fast as you can with no mind to consolidation or the building of defenses! Unless you are playing wood elves public order is not impossible to maintain, it just means you have to actually manage the territories you have and pay attention to corruption.

>force me to spam
You arent forced into anything, certainly not on hard anyways. You just wont instantly roll over everything with whatever you felt like throwing into an army.

>focus on the tactics that feasibly work
Yes, instead of just rolling over impotent foes that cant hope to threaten you, you now have to put some (not too much (or much at all if you use the right strategy) ) thought into what youre doing. I would dare say thats the whole point of a STRATEGY game.

He beat him up pretty bad in ET, twice if I remember correct, but it's still stupid because Sigmar is a god and Archaon is just some guy who's not even at Aenarion levels of powerful, but all the godly gifts in the world can't outweigh a kiloton of plot armor.

In AoS they only "fight" once and Sigmar throws his hammer or something and Archaon dodges it and then the hammer's gone then Sigmar retreats. It's equally as dumb as ET but it shows up in an early White Dwarf article from when the setting was basically in beta, still with all those "have a moustache and get +1 to rolls" rules. Sigmar in current AoS lore is waaay stronger.

Aenarion is a cuck that died to four Greater Daemons. Stop being a lorelet.

Archaon and Sigmar fought twice in the End Times.

The first time was before we were told that Karl Franz's corpse was now housing Sigmar. Archaon used the Eye of Sheerin to rip the Wind of Heavens from Sigmar and beat him up. Before he could finish him, the Slayer King empowered with the Wind of Fire confronted Archaon and duelled him before ALLAH AKBARING the whole city to kill Archaon. It didn't work.

The second time was during the final battle. Prior to their fight, Grimgor headbutted Archaon which shattered the Eye of Sheerin. The lore says because he had lost his Eye, he couldn't rip the Winds of Heaven like he did this time. Archaon this time around was fighting Sigmar at his full strength. Sigmar was clearly the stronger warrior in the fight. He shattered the Slayer of Kings which robbed Archaon of a great measure of his power and then he YEETED into the chasm.

Aeons later in AoS, Archaon who is now a demigod of Chaos engaged Sigmar in the battle of Burning Skies. Sigmar realised that he cannot beat Archaon in a straight up fight so he threw his hammer. And you know how that ended up.

So in ETs it's 1-1.

In AoS. It's 1-0.

>> No.74568263

>Aenarion is a cuck that died to four Greater Daemons
And killed three of them in one swing apiece, preceded by hundreds if not thousands of other daemons, including a daemon prince he killed in one spearthrow.

Okay, yeah, he lost that fight because of Archaon's Eye, but he still wounded him. It wasn't a curbstomp compared to the second battle, which most assuredly was.

Sigmar "realizing he can't beat Archaon in a straight up fight" was from July(?) of 2015, so as the setting was just getting started. Later on the lore was elaborated that Sigmar at the helm of Order was "almost omnipotent" and Chaos was on its last legs until the Aelves fucked errythang up. The hammer throw's still there but with no further mention of Sigmar being "unable" to beat Archaon. It was a silly move back when the lore wasn't all there all so they could make a dumb throwback to the Legend of Sigmar where one of his men is like "bruh throwin ur hammer will lose u a battle 1 day lol" and nothing more, so I like to think that nowadays it would've been written differently, since unless you wanna say Archaon > Chaos Gods Sigmar would have no issue beating him man to man. For all his power Archaon is just a guy, and Sigmar is still a god.

It was him and his dragon. And he would have died without his dragon. Incarnates and Archaon killed Greater daemons with each. Nagash with crusing bloodthisters with his bare hand and that was depowered Nagash. Aenarion is not on the same league as them.

>Sigmar "realizing he can't beat Archaon in a straight up fight" was from July(?) of 2015,
You really need to brush up in the lore. The retellings of that fuck up all agree that Sigmar did not want to risk it in fighting Archaon. The latest telling said that Sigmar didn't want to engage Archaon because on top of him being a deadly foe, Archaon had a sword that can kill gods.

The Battle of Burning Skies was the FINAL HURRAH of the forces of Order. Chaos was on the verge of victory after Nagash betrayed them by allowing Sigmar to use his gate to the Allpoint. Most of Order Gods including Gorkamorka were there. They were smashing face but then Archaon appeared. Sigmar NOPE'ed and threw his hammer at him. Turned out it was an illusion and his hammer which is the source of most of his power got YEETED into a rift. With most of his power lost Sigmar was forced to retreat. With the leader of their pantheon gone, the other gods retreated as well. Chaos massacred the Order armies and then conquered all realms save Azyr.

Equal in influence, but Nagash is a necromancer lore whose main selling point is being able to harness souls and infinite legions of the undead that are immune to Chaos corruption and can't be negotiated with or intimidated by Order, not that he can beat people up. Sigmar on the other hand is a warrior-god. I suggest you go to /aosg/ and get educated instead of spouting off memes/bait/ignorance.

So you admit that N'kari wasn't perma-killed by the Widowmaker because 8th ED gives a timeline of the events. Aenarion picked up the sword AFTER N'kari killed his waifu Everqueen. He took out his revenge on N'kari. N'kari was not perma-killed. So....

Nah. Nagash is often goes to war. He doesn't shy away from from combat. He has a history of slaughtering dozens of Greater Daemons like they are chaff. He is a warrior god as much as Sigmar.

What do you think GW though the general fan reaction of everyone to tripping on a banana peel simultaneously while a giant anus opened up in the sky and begins to disgorge taco's while Sigmar and Ulric got pegged by the lady of the lake who was Morathi cosplaying the whole time was going to be?

I think the best thing that AoS did when they remade the new lore was making Franz a trans person. The old setting was very lacking in any decent representation because of how limiting it was to real world parralells and geography, fuck that noise.

I think this actually highlights see me real glaring faults with Warhammer fantasy as a setting and why the change to AoS was neccesary, even if she's not conveying it well she's making some solid points here.

Warhammer fantasy is a game stuck in the past, and it's not a good past. The overall to Evans them is a nationalist edgefest mixed with hard Tolkien archtypes. It's not only uninteresting, but because it's based on these old themes fr a time where progressiveism hadn't taken off yet, you get things like all white countries and racist elves. It's just old and gross. How are you supposed to have represntation in an outdated work of geographicly interwined people instead of a more modern and good cosmopolitan setting? Chuds like to rail about the lore and sticking to it, and with WHF they really did not have any lore room. So they started over and made a setting where they could represent people. And chuds lost it.

Warhammer Fantasy is a setting that needs to be left behind, in the games too. It's not the 80s anymore, we expect black and trans characters.

It’s really about how humanity’s always getting fucked over by elves. The cosplay is supposed to represent how elves will use their perfidious ways to attempt to infiltrate and subvert human realms by assuming positions of power, and fuck them over in a friendly guise. Bretonnia is the most prominent example, so LotL is a good choice. Morathi is what every elf really is at their core underneath the finery: a degenerate schemer always planning to make things harder for humans.

There’s a lot of guesswork when it comes to the shit GW got out of his stint as creative director. I for one was shocked by the lore entry he wrote about the Skaven attempting to assume control of the empire by partially shaving some of their clan rats and using warpstone-based rituals to make them look somewhat human to use as political agents. I really don’t understand how we as the reader were supposed to believe imperial citizens would be fooled by the disguise, it just seems a little unrealistic.

are you a chaos lord always in search of cheap and fast to produce siege equipment? do you have a fancy for wanton cruelty and plenty of disposable bodies? piles of unused chains, spikes and hooks gathering dust after your last ritual to the dark gods? (of course you do)
then you are in luck! by summoning your closest flesh crafter (demonic or verminous it matters not) you too may start creating FLAYERKINS!
FLAYERKINS! the last fashion in siege equipment of any self respecting warlord joining archaon in his siege of middenheim (or a vintage tradition depending on what side of the chaos wastes you come from)
a mixture of man, slave, something less than man and with wicked blades replacing their severed arms capable of hacking at ranks of weakling southerners in a shower of gore and flailing limbs just as efficiently as they can scale steep fortress walls and watchtowers without need of further equipment or instructions
but their best feature is their senseless resilience: 9 out of 9 tzeentchians, in fact, will recommend you to attach dangling chains and ropes to the bodies of the flayerkin, as even should they die on their way to scale a castle's defences, they will keep on gripping to the rock, allowing more of your troops to use the aforementioned attachments to climb quickly and not lose ground, or time!

Creating a new range from scratch is a massive financial risk. It alienates some veteran players they are looking to bring back in. 15mm scale is not popular and while it could be successful many people will dislike having to remake terrain to fit the game (see Conquest: LAOK).

All of those old kits and store stock will go to waste. Releasing a TOW rulebook right now, would generate sales with little to no effort on GW part due to many of those sculpts still being available and on store shelves.

How will old stock go to waste? There’s AoS. They’re not releasing a rulebook right now though are they. They’re releasing it 2+ years from now.

An AoS or 40k player has no reason to get ToW mini's if theyre 15mm, but does if theyre 28mm.

>> No.74583876

>Why say up front it’s going to be so far out?
because as interest in aos was picking up so was interest in whfb and to calm down the public opinion they announced it

Thanks for telling me your personal preference and not really presenting a rebuttal.

15mm is not being popular is not my opinion, it is market fact. None of the big companies or games or 15mm. Right now there is no market desire for it. That doesn't mean it COULDN'T be popular. But there is literally next to no benefit for it from a cost/gain approach. Unless there was some marketing research drive that uncovered a massive desire for it from their surveys it is highly doubtful they will shift scales.

Assuming Empire and Kislev is risk mitigation or the two year time delay isn't for new designs is you misunderstanding how production and design works. By the time TOW launches, everything in the few waves will be ready to ship or in active production. Nothing about launching new ranges is a true cost saving measure. And it takes time to figure out and design rules, make new models to go with them. These two years will be centered around making a 2 players starter and some start collecting boxes for maybe like a 2-5 factions, with others being just use old models in a index like 40k.

Then new factions will come in waves further down the line. The content of waves will already be decided upon around time TOW launches because two years is not a lot when trying to get so much off the ground. This speculation is based on the tried and true formula that GW has stuck with before and seen lots of success with it.

Are you more connected to the models or the lore? Judging by the inane discussions in these Generals, I'm going to say the latter.

>> No.74584287

The main changes are to the rulebook, not to the armybooks

Some stuff got stronger (WoC are less dogshit) some stuff got weaker (empire), but the specific balance of units in terms of points isnt too different

Characters in 6th are generally weaker though (with some notable exceptions)

6th edition stuff tends to be more expensive per model with less rules attached.

Like the Bret book is pretty solid, but those Knights are less effective and more expensive than their empire counter parts.

The themed armies are a bit more lacking in options and balance so you may have a hard time, but it could still be fun.

You’re assuming them showing a 20mm square base somehow proves it’ll be used in the game? How do you not realize the base was shorthand used to symbolize a return to WHFB? They’re just capitalizing on the community’s anger over switching from square to circle when AoS happened.

I said the hobby, not The Hobby™, as did you. GW didn't kill the wargaming hobby any more than Wizards selling out killed RPGs. You might have a collection of non-GW stuff but I doubt you can actually play it unless it's shit that you can get pick-up games for like Infinity, because obnoxious autists like yourself gatekeep yourself from alt wargaming communities by virtue of being repulsive cunts; hence why you're coping with this bitter, feminine, attention whoring faggotry here. While you're an obnoxious cunt you won't get invited to play with the alt wargamers and you'll be stuck with all the other genuinely repulsive store haunting pariahs, and while you don't get invited to clubs and groups you'll be a bitter cunt, it's a feedback loop.

Why are you saying this to the fanbase of a setting almost completely unsupported by GW, who play within the setting with a variety old old, second hand, and third party and community made miniatures; who play with old or community maintained editions of out of print games and third party and community rules? It's as retarded as shitting up the Epic thread and almost as retarded as bitching in /awg/.

Rhetorical question of course, it's because you're a whiny autistic ESL faggot who's got no conviction and who's too cowardly to fling shit in the generals for active GW games, we're a quiet general and so soft target for a moaning milk-bag of vaginal discharge like yourself. Next to nobody here has any high hopes for The Old World, we'll keep playing whatever we so choose.

Stop being such a revolting cunt and you won't have to pick for scraps at the stores. If you have multiple options for stores to play at with the other friendless store haunting losers you've got a whole alt wargames community that is desperately hoping whining friendless cunts like you don't find out about. Stop being a cunt, like I said, and a whole world will open up for you, and you won't feel compelled to be such an enormous faggot online as a way to deal with your miserable existence. You can be a social retard and find acceptance within the alt wargaming community nerd communities, you just need to stop being such an edgy self-pitying piece of shit that nobody wants to hang around you except the other store haunting losers.
