Events / Fall In! 2018 Warmaster Tournament pics
« Last post by Dave on Today at 12:42:58 PM »
Although we only had five for the tournament a good time was had by all. We got plenty of onlookers and some promises to take part in the Cold Wars and next year's tournaments. We used Warmaster Revolution with the three optional rules on the right side of the optional rules page. For round 1, we played the Take and Hold scenario. Round 2 was Breakthrough and 3 was Flank Attack. I re-wrote them from WFB 6e, they worked pretty well I thought and there were no player complaints.

Anyway enjoy the pics!

Karl's Skaven make ready.

They face off against Kal's Dark Elves.

Brian's Ogre prepare to pound Shawn's High Elves

The rats grab a Take and Hold objective.

Hell's Bell

Corsairs and Witch Elves look forward to some rat kababs.

Karl has 28 units in his army. It was rather big.

One of Kal's Hydras

Shawn's Dragon Rider leads some Reavers to battle.

Brian's Iron Guts leading the way.

The Snuffaluffagus brigade!

Hydra #2 is about to get indigestion.

Witches and Corsairs on the move.

Ogres and elves about to clash.

In the Chariots go.

Things get messy.

The Cold Ones joint he fray.

I don't believe this ended well for the elves.

The Ogres battleline smacks some unsupported Spearelves around.

Rat Ogres make a grab for an objective.

The Dark Elf general reinforces the line.

Witch Elves and Corsairs hit Karl right in the Bells.

Down goes the Cold Ones.

The Elves pursue the Ogres

Round 2 saw Karl's rats face off against my Elves.

Sadly these are the only pics I got.

Brian's Ogres faced off against Kal's Dark Elves.

In Round 3, I played Brian's Ogres.

My infantry hid in the hay fields and waited for their flanking force to arrive.

They came in turn 5, and hit the Ogre's right flank hard.

Shawn's Cav decided to play with some rats on a hill.

A valiant last stand.

Rat Ogres for the win!

Warmaster Revolution / Raise Dead issue
« Last post by Aldhick on Yesterday at 07:38:28 PM »
For those who don't follow the discussion on FB, I'm opening the issue here as well. Also FB is not suitable for this kind of discussions and one loses track quickly there.

After the tournamet the swedish guys came with a "complain" that the Raise Dead grew significantly stronger under WMR combat system. And it is very well true. I must admit, being TK player myself,  I failed to spot that, but now it's quite clear.

It is the obligation you have to direct the attack to the foront which allows the raised unit to avoid being targeted as a easy-to-kill target. Furthermore, now when the supporting units are part of the combat, it gives the TK/VC player wider possibilities to place raised units.

This is a matter of fact, but it may be up to endless discussions, wheter it is unbalancing or not.

Much bigger problem was uncovered at the same time. The spell allowes one to mess quite a bit with the combat system. The problem is following: When a brigade of two lines of infantry is charged to the front (so the rear line is supporting the front one) and the raised unit is created so it only touches the supporting unit, this unit cease to be supporting and therefore is no longer part of the same combat and we end up with two separate combats before a single dice is rolled. This is something totally against the intention of the original spell and it is a serious reason to amend it.

So the proposition so far to solve the problem is the obligation that the raised unit has to touch the friendly unit already engaged in combat.

Once ready the amendment will be presented on WMR web in Q & A section as a trial rule so people can playtest it.
