  2. Have you considered updating the "For Hire" table in the Regiments of Renown expansion to cover the alternative army books you've been working on? Keep up the fantastic work!

  4. I feel that the Norse Counter-Charge ability could be re-worked, maybe in a similar manner to the Warhammer 40,000 version. Here's my take: When charged, a unit containing at least one model with this special rule may make a counter-charge if the range to the enemy is greater than the charging units move characteristic. When counter-charging, move your unit D6" inches forward (before your opponent moves his unit). A counter-charging unit gains all bonuses (+1 attack, use of spears) that they normally get from charging.

    This makes the ability considerably more useful, especially in some metas where people only charge when the bell curve favors them. Since this change also makes the rule more powerful, I would also say to make it a rule that only Jarls and Kings have.

  5. Got some questions regarding Shinobis in the Nippon army book.

    What exactly does quick shot do?
    Regarding Spider Venom, does a Toughness value of 0 result in the removal of the model?

    Thanks.

    1. The Quick Shot is part of the Ninjas' rules, check their page ;)

      Yes, T0 = dead, as per the BRB.

  6. One thing on Nippon: imho their magic (fly spell...) and bound spells of the war priest are really over the top. maybe you should reconsider their casting values or reduce its efficiency.

    1. The bound spells are actually the same as the Empire Warrior Priest from 6th/th ed, so I find it surprising that you find them over the top ;)

      I will nerf the spell to only allow a 12" move, makes it a bit more challenging to use.

  7. In your 8.5 edition panic should be re-worked. Each reason that a unit takes a panic test beyond the first should cause a -1 penalty to the test. Maybe the strength of the unit that breaks or is annihilated should also cause a penalty like say, special and rare units include a penalty as well as a test.
