Domination

Post  Lord Tyrant Daemora on Mon Nov 21, 2011 10:23 pm

Got the book today. eHexeris is AMAZING! Feat not only ruins Hordes, it also is a big boost to his offensive power. I'm not sure I am a fan for battle engines, and diffidently didn't expect them to be so cheap (9pts FA2), and they seem kind of fragile. roughly 19-22 dmg each, new rules mean they get no defense bonus from cover/concealment/melee and 5" tall rule for LOS issues.

Personally I like the idea behind them. The term glass cannon comes to mind. I very much like that they aren't hard to kill, but you definitely havve to kill them. each of them is nasty I am sure. Not quite sure how I feel about mine just yet. Yes, it has some awesome abilities, but at this point I think I would prefer to spend the points elsewhere. i look forward to seeing some on the battlefield though. Drew(Khador) has his ordered from Dennis but unfortunately that could mean a few months before we see it...

They may only have around 20 damage boxes, but they don't have systems or aspects to break either. So, they are 100% effective until destroyed.

They arent fragile. But these arent the "titans" of other games..
These are what they say that are. Battle Engines. Battle engines have a role, be it damage, support etc. Its like saying all warcasters/warlocks are inferior to pThagrosh because he is awsome and god like. His rules are snazzy too. Like battle engines there are casters/locks that serve different roles. Is one better than others, sure, but remember no body is pThagrosh, excelpt for eThagrosh. That that is only a technicality.

lol Well said. Kind of wish my Battle Engine was a little more on the offfensive. I enjoy all the wonderful support Menoth has butsometimes I wish I had giant beatsticks like other factions. What then, would differentiate us from each other though?

Personally I think you could use another Crusader or two. Its an inexpensive warjack (points wise), It can hold its own in combat, has a great critical effect. Can throw a good amount of things. Also has nice armor to boot. Im sure you can find a few online for cheap too.
Laters. Very Happy
oh ya and it does all these without buffs. Very Happy

Definitely Shawn, one reason I really want the PoM half of the 2 player PoM and Khador box set. It has a Crusader, a Vanquisher(Heavy with big ranged and a nice melee), a repenter (light with flamethrower), and a unit I do not yet have. Want to find someone who wants the Khador half of the box set and buy it from Dennis at Duleing Grounds. Though I think I did see that he is having a Black Friday sale, 30 % off of board games which he considers that a board game. Think I might just buy it and try to sell the Khador half. Thanks Shawn... You just made me talk myself into spending more money.

I haven't seen the book yet but I saw a picture of Rok, the new Troll beast, and I love the look of that guy. I was already considering jumping into Hordes with Trolls, so if I actually follow through with it, I cant wait to put that guy on the table. I hope his model is as cool as his art.

The battle engines are pretty cool, but I'd rather spend the 8-10 points on jacks. Since I play Khador, the two 4 inch rough terrain templates would be nice, but 9 points takes a big chunk out of the points I usually set aside for jacks. I agree they definitely have there place in the different factions though. Some of them are down right scary!

I'd have to agree, I would rather spend those points on jacks at this point. I'm sure the day will come that I wish I had my battle engine, but until that day I will save myself some cash.
