No- wait until 2.0 drops at this point. We are only 6-8 weeks away -ish.

There were rules to buff the lores of beasts and life, and debuff the lore of heavens in white dwarf and reprinted in the 2004 chronicles to try and encourage/discourage use of the most under/over utilized lore(s)

Great game. The only way I could handle brets is avoid combat like the plague, march block, and hope my artillery can do work. That scenario practically sealed your fate.

That hydra banner should have done more work, but damn those Steve rolls.

Steve hit it spot on when he said DE%u2019s pay premium for two of the 6th%u2019s softest stats. That%u2019s why I tended to field executioners because great weapons/killing blow at initiative wasn%u2019t a bad thing (note %u201803 edition/revision gave them heavy armor.) the one thing DE%u2019s rock at that really matters is they are fast, and the brets could give less of a damn about that.

Despite DE%u2019s being heavily unfavored, you still had your chance Luka. Steve%u2019s armor save rolls...

Oh yeah, as you found out Hydra%u2019s suck in 6th. Every monster that wasn%u2019t a dragon, or allowed flexibility of maneuver due to flight were typically awful. Stomps was a good rules addition.

In truth, I%u2019d probably love 8th rather than hate it had they not made one small but crucial/incredibly stupid choice. Double 1%u2019s should have remained the miscast. That one rule would have forced players to stop and think instead of blindly tossing a billion dice at a spell. Would have been a huge calming effect on magic, made it more strategic, yet kept its potential to shape the game relatively high.

Only one rule catch, Luka your bsb can only be 2+ save in cc. No shield.

Correction%u2014 executioners didn%u2019t get strike at ini but I still took them often
