>What is /awg/?
A thread to talk about minis and games which fall between the cracks, or peoples' homebrew wargames. The >>>/tg/hwg thread doesn't entertain fantasy (for good reason) and the other threads are locked to more specific games.
This thread isn't tied to a game, a publisher, or a genre, let's just talk about fun wargames. Any scale, any genre, any company, any miniatures. Skirmishers welcome. Rules designers welcome.

>Examples of games that qualify
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_miniature_wargames
OnePageRules, Warzone, Mighty Armies, Warmachine & Hordes, Dragon Rampant, Oathmark, Mortal Gods, Kings of War, Firefight, Deadzone, Warpath, Frost/Stargrave, Hordes of the Things, Gaslands, Conquest, Songs of Blades and Heroes, Dark Age, Beyond the Gates of Antares, Malifaux, and anything else that doesn't necessarily have a dedicated thread.

>Are you doing any holiday-themed games or minis this year? If so, what?
I dont have a group.
I might sculpt some angels and attempt to make a nativity scene. i think if I paint them nicely they could be nice small gifts.

Anyone has experience with buying from Lucid Eye studio? I like a lot of their red elf stuff.
Any other recommendations for snow elves from Beleriend?

. . . It's a system of basic rules you can get for free/cheap.
It's got a sideline of stls for models.
I think the rules are totally okay for what they are, an easy rule set you could come up with yourself in an afternoon.
Some people here don't like OPR because they shilled their rulesets here.

My friend is getting me in to Malifaux and he's gotten me a Colette core box for my birthday. I was thinking of just getting the 2 other performers boxes during their black friday event, is that the right way to go or should I perhaps pick up a different box of units to add to my crew?
>>
>>86793282
Do people post about marvel crisis protocol here or in a different thread? I got into it recently and wanted to see how prevalent proxies were in the game. There's a lot better looking models I can get printed out there than the official ones. Just wanted to see how frowned upon it is to see if there's any pitfalls I can avoid.
>>
>>86801429
It's permitted.

>>86798558
Sorry for off topic but damn modern gw art manages to be entirely lifeless and stale with an iconic last stand. Even the 3rd ed space marine codex homage was better than that piece. I usually don't complain newthingbad but damn that one got me.
>>
>>86798558

It's very streamlined, the models have only two stats, quality and defence. These are supplemented by universal special rules. The game has alternating actions. The advanced rules have extra actions, command points and optional rules like random activation (basically the players put colored tokens in a bag and draw them to decide who gets to activate next.

It's a simple and fun game, probably a breath of fresh air after 9th edition bloat. But it might be lacking compared to other /awg/ due to the very simplistic design philosophy which does not allow for much granularity.

>>86801429
Yeah sometimes we discuss it but /awg/ doesn't really play alot of MCP.
It is 1) kinda expensive and 2) not model agnostic.
But I do know a fair bit of the game and am willing to discuss it.
Regarding the proxy, People usually permit it. For friendly game it is very easy to tell people.
As there isn't really a lot of official Tournament, the option can change variable.
Of my three tournament we had alternative allowed but no proxying.
So as long as you could see that it is the same character (So alternative femdoc Oc for doc oc) it was okay but not other characters.
Also the bases had to be correct.
But it very much had to be okay with your opponent, I had the original figures with me but didn't have to field them.

Print to play cards were always allowed, no one gave a shit.

Anyone seen the Mantic Terrain Kickstarter?
I'm kinda tempted, but how is the quality of that terrain? Never bought any of it, so i'm curious. Is it that typical "rubbery" plastic from boardgames? Or actual hard plastic like Frostgrave minis for example?
>>
>>86806866
I've gotten a bunch of terrsin from them. Both from Mars attacks Kickstarter and their terrain crate stuff. I like it a lot. You get quite a bit for the price. I don't know if it's worth it over just 3D printing if you got a printer. It's hard plastic, at least the stuff I've gotten.
>>
>>86806231
Well, would you be willing to sell those sprues and if so, what's the rough ballpark for your price? I'm assuming ~15 bucks for shipping on top of that. Historically, the German post is expensive as fuck for no reason.

There was a pretty interesting discussion about this on the Malifaux World Series discord today - in most cases, after you have most of the keyword, it makes mroe sense to get models to cover your weaknesses, rather than complete teh Keyword.
Reason for that, and Colette's Performers illustrate this nicely, is that you'll find that the complete Keyword allows you to excel at the objective sets you are good at, but get absolutely rectum'd in the scenarios you are bad at.

Performer are incredible mobile interacters, but if you have to camp on an objective and defend it, your girls will die in droves.
I'd definitely pick up the Coryphee box, as they are core to how Performer can do damage.
Center Stage - Carlos, Angelica and the Ice Dancers - is arguably less important. Having said that, Carlos is the closest thing the Keyword has to a character able to take a punch.

What I'd recommend is grabbing another Arcanist Master that appeals to your sensibilities - they'll come with a Henchman and Minions that can play with Colette too, albeit slightly sub-optimally, but will probably bring something different (damage output, tankiness, guns etc.) to your collection.

I think I'd pretty much always recommend just getting what you think looks cool in Malifaux.
If you're not playing competitively, it won't matter what you pick.
If you are playing competitively, Malifaux is complex to the point that having mastery of a sub optimal crew is usually better than playing a more optimal crew you're less familiar with.

>>86808837

>>86793282
how different are the playstyles of Frostgrave magic schools? I can't find any information about them outside of the 1e pdf description.

I know I could probably play the game and find out, or just go with what's inspiring to me, but I think so many of the wizard schools are interesting. Looking for anything to provide an edge to my decision making.
>>
>>86808897
Broadly yes, but there are some parts of the game that, for some keywords, the base crew can't hang with.
I think adding a tank to a Colette crew or a sprinter to some Guild crews can make the game far more enjoyable and easier to learn than just flailing helplessly in scenarios your keyword defaults aren't intended for.

>I think I'd pretty much always recommend just getting what you think looks cool
Objecting to that would obviously be foolish though.
>>
>>86809587
School-mixing means it's not as broad a spread as you think. You can basically splash out and grab your utility spells from an allied school (with limited exceptions) and still have a similar build. Spells basically break down into trolling your opponent, getting free gear, terrain manipulation, buffs, debuffs, ranged attacks, and bonus party members.
The big difference is what >kind< of spells you get to play with in the broader categories.
For example, Sigilites can't dependably cast Summoning spells or use Necromancy/Witch stuff to get free party members and potions, but they get extremely good environmental manipulation spells, buffs, trolling, and free Scrolls, plus easy access to a temp summon or more trolling from Illusionist and access to Enchanter's Constructs/buffs and Thaumaturges' free healing and nasty anti-Incorporeal tools.
None of the schools really >gimp< you, although Chronomancer and Illusionist are very hard to use well. Illusionist in particular goes in hard on "troll" spells that exist mostly to piss off your opponent rather than give you a better chance of winning the game.
>good stuff
"Allied" access to Witch gives you easy access to free potions, which is incredibly useful. Enchanters can make free, permanent magic weapons, but this takes two spells and has a very high casting number. Unless you're playing an Enchanter it's very hard to take advantage of it. Sigilites get a spell for free Scrolls, but Bridge and Draining/Power Word are vastly more useful.
Ranged attacks are heavily nerfed, with a 24" max range on almost all spells and the one unlimited-range one being on the Witch >and< counted as a normal rather than magic attack. Animal Companion or Brew Potion are much more useful, so it's basically non-existent.
Summoner and Necromancer can call up extra party members, which is insanely useful. Enchanter and Witch both have special types of party member that take up a slot and have their own buff trees
>>
>>86809587
>>86810171
Back from my errand.
So what does each class do uniquely?
>Chronomancer
Bad spells that ruin your action economy, a couple of decent ones for removing terrain and enemy weapons, and a powerful Stun debuff.

>Elementalist
WRECK SHIT on pretty much anything in range, and the unspeakably irritating Wall spell.

>Enchanter
Constructs, buffs, and oddly a telekinesis spell that makes getting treasure much easier. They can get both one of the weapon/armor enchantments and the spell to make it permanent without having to rely on RNG like other classes. Wasting all three of your school slots on armor, weapons, and permanence is a >very< bad idea though.

>Illusionist:
TROLOLOLOLOLOLLOL. Glow is one of the few spells to make ranged combat Specialists not just viable but lethal.

>Necromancer
Summon irritating monsters and get outnumbering bonuses. Strike Dead is not as good as you think it is. Spell Eater is much, much better than it looks.

>Sigilite
Make it easier to cast their own spells and harder for opponents to cast theirs. Bridge and push are both very good. Can use Tattoo magic from "Forgotten Pacts" to get multiple useful buffs.

>Soothsayer
Decent buffs, Mind Control, and some dangerous combo/counterspells for other schools. Can also manipulate treasure rolls

>Summoner
Risky spells for buffing, good movement spells, is the only School that starts out able to summon anything better than an Imp or Minor Demon. Forgotten Pacts gives them a bonus type of party member and more variety on summons

>Thaumaturge
Healing and good spells for clearing out pesky Undead/Demons without dedicating Specialist slots to them. Can also delete all persistent enemy spells. Including Bridge, Mud, Fog, and Wall, some of the most annoying spells in the game.

>Witch
Good all-rounder skills. Familiar is worthless. Fog, Mud, Brew Potion, and Animal Companion are some of the best spells in the game. The other two are situationally useful.
>>
>>86803938

No, "vaguely Clown themed whore" Harley has been divisive since Arkham Asylum shat her into the world. When DC did the New52 and redesigned her into the roller derbyish look it was not popular with many comic fans.

>>86813830

>>86815072
Fuck off she had good runs.
Gail Simone is one of the better writer for DC until 2011.
Unlike some writer she doesn't force Harley everywhere.
Though I do have to say; Gail is not the best female writer by far, Dixon is better but atleast Gail tried to respect character unlike other shiiters (Bendis top here, but there is too many to count).
For me she is a great writer because she saved Catman and Bane from dying as one note character and fucking tried to wrestle Deadshot away from Harley.
In conclusion:
Shit twitter account, read Secret Six

they just ended their halloween sale on the 16th. It's their biggest sale each week, goes on for weeks and backlogs them for months.

They're also running a Kickstarter right now. So considering that there is basically just one barely functional cripple running the show I guess they don't want to put too much on their plate.

Someone more business savvy could have grown that company into something bigger by now, but they seem to be content to keep doing things the way they are, for better or worse. That's just part of dealing with a small business running on a skeleton crew I suppose.

As a game, how is Frostgrave / Ghost Archipelago? The miniatures look awesome and theyre quite cheap, so I'm definitely getting some, but is it a fun game too? Worth making a couple funky warbands?

>>86817108
It depends.
Its fun, but most of its fun comes from playing a campaign with friends, and not just playing random pickup games with random people.

However, if your friends are the WAAC type, the game can easily become unbalanced and snowballing during the campaigns can and will happen, especially if some players are willing to play cheese warbands, and others are not.

you don't have to be a coomer - or a biologist - to tell the difference between a man and a woman.

The design has both broad shoulders and wide hips, while hiding the face. Chest and groin are covered by armor. No idea if this was intentional, but they really made it hard to tell what is going on there.
The art is just not very convincing. If you adjust the proportions a tiny bit you can get this to read a lot better

>>86818913
I think I'm mostly just fucking tired of any time a female model with any kind of muscle mass showing up, it coming with the culture war goons complaining shit isn't sexy enough.
Personally, the only thing I like about that model is the veiled head design, the rest reads as a hyper generic barbarian. But calling it "tranny" says to me you expect your female models to be sexy, which is both a covered niche and something that always strikes me as a bizarre desire for something an inch tall that you'll also need to paint.

I didn't call it that, but I can't think of a reason you wouldn't want them to be nice to look at. Unless you are looking at something specifically grotesque like a zombie or something like that - models are a visual "medium" if you will.

If my barbarians look like Arnold Schwarzenegger I want my amazons to look like Pamela Anderson too. Not sure what is so controversial about that.

My friend is looking for miniatures of more realistic astronauts. Any recommendations?
>>
>>86820435
>>86817108
Short version:
The games are best when you have at least three, preferably more like five, warbands slugging it out. It adds a lot of variety to games and you can't afford to overspecialize to take each other out the way you can in a 2-player campaign. They need a LOT of terrain on the table.

I recommend getting at least one campaign book as well as the main rulebook, and DEFINITELY buy the second edition. It cleans up a lot of the exploits and bullshit in 1e, which had multiple patches over the years. Out of the scenario books, "Forgotten Pacts" and "Thaw of the Lich Lord" are the most useful. Both add interesting soldier types, a decent campaign, and moderate buffs/playstyle changes to your warbands. "Into the Breeding Pits" adds in dungeon fight rules and a way to run Beastman/fleshcrafter warbands. A lot of "Frostgrave Folio" and "Maze of Malcor"'s content has been superseded or severely nerfed by later books, although "Hunt for the Golem" in it gives some more options for a Construct-heavy Enchanter warband.
The other big thing to keep in mind is that Frostgrave uses a lot of wandering monsters. While you don't have to fill out the whole checkbox in the back, you definitely want a mix of Undead, demons/angels, animals, Constructs (I paint up busted minis as statues), a werewolf/vampire or two, and beastmen/orcs/bandits plus a couple bigger monsters like trolls or giants.

>Ghost Archipelago
Is a much, much more brutal game. It may not look like it on the surface but the rules changes make recovering from a really bad game very hard. You have to use your team effectively and preserve your Specialists or you're going to be hurting bad down the line. It also has a very strong Sinbad/Harryhausen vibe rather than Pirates of the Carribean (because the author has a pathological hatred of guns for some reason). So you wind up running around twatting dinosaurs with Greek hoplites and Barbary Corsairs and getting slaughtered by Howler monkeys.

complete newfag to war gaming so I'm taking any and all recommendations. I have 1 buddy who's down to play w/e. SciFi/fantasy doesn't matter. miniature agnostic is a plus so I can print but isn't a hard set rule. don't want games that require books for each faction (eg. GW games for the most part). preliminary research (YT Battle Reports) has pointed me towards Frost/Stargrave, OPR, Song of Ice and Fire, Reign in Hell, Infinity, Gaslands, Kings of War. Watching ppl play is one thing, doing it is another so here I am asking you wonderful anons

If the 3d printer goes brrrr, Xgrave is a pretty good choice. They're mini agnostic, but need a lot of random monsters and set pieces for different scenarios. It's one thing if you're an RPG player and have a bunch of random stuff lying around already and can substitute orcs for gnolls or whatever, but getting into it raw can be rough if you don't want to use bottlecaps and chess pieces as substitutes for random models you'll only ever use once.

Get Rangers of Shadowdeep, cooperative, chill, narrative fun game.
Upgrade to agnostic skirmish games, I recommend frostgrave/stargrave, fantasy/sci-fi respectively. When you have a basic grip of wargaming concepts try the OPR stuff, it's free and ranges from skirmish to larger battles to rank and file games, to see what scale you like best.
Branch out to proper rulesets from there in the desired scale. Kings of war (RNF), Kings of war Vanguard (Skirmish), Infinity (SF Skirmish), Erehwon (skmirsh), Oathmark (RNF).
Or ask more specific questions when you know more of what you want.

Achtung Chtullu being an obvious example, but there are also games like Dracula's America that have cultist factions that allude to it. Deep Wars from Antimatter games also has some ties to those themes.

If you just want miniatures there are a lot more options than games that explicitly feature them as a faction, because they are also a stable in a lot of RPG games. Reaper or Crooked Dice for example have miniatures for cultists and fishpeople.

The sentry is always a solid pick for Titans. It gives you a piece that you can sit somewhere and make it hard to dislodge with little need for help in doing so. And Paingivers make it hit hit hard enough that the drop in melee power from the gladiator isn't as big of a deal. The lack of Rush hurts, though, and the glad is better if you're playing into a jack/beast heavy list.

You can always split the box and make a unit of each for the Swordsmen and the Keltarii. I personally lean more towards the Swordsmen, since they hit harder and the CA make them so much better, but you can do some fun stuff with the new unit movement rules and the Keltarii. I just wish they hit a little harder.

I think it's just a limited edition mini, like the scourge trooper.

Dropsquad would be cool though
>>
>>86846108
The miniatures are excellent, I've only played one game so far in addition to the rules exercises in the book but it's pretty fun. I'd say the biggest limitation is that you only get 4 players per team per game, so the tactical options are limited, but within that paradigm it's quite fun. I personally like that since I only wanted a small sidegame for my sports game.

I figured it was just going to be a 2023 exclusive, but the Shaltari showing up in the back has me thinking it'll be something more substantive than that if there's more models being teased.

Yeah, it's been a while since I played wargames, but keen to get back into it. AT-43 was my favourite though, so definitely looking for something with a similar feel in rules and lore.

Probably pretty good. There's a couple parts of the almond that would make easy cut lines.
>>
>>86793282
probably not the best place to ask but I didn't see a QTDDTOT thread up. I'm looking for a solitaire wargame/board game (since i'm giving up video games, I need something to take up my time) preferably for beginners or at least with a rule set that can be modified to be simpler or more complex, but don't worry too much about it.
Just general things I'm interested in:
Fleet Combat (mainly Starfleet combat, but I can do historical fleets as well, I prefer age of sail over modern, must have a boarding mechanic because I'm autistic)
Ancient Rome or just Antiquity warfare.
Civil War (less interested than the other 2)
I'm okay with chits or minis, but I would prefer cheaper and smaller minis due to space and having everything come in 1 box is a huge bonus.
If this derails the thread or is a low quality post, feel free to ignore it.
>>
>>86853981
>solitaire
>fleet action
>simple/chits a plus
You might want to check out A Billion Suns. it's got okay AI rules and works well with paper minis. You can't exactly buy a starter box but it's a cheap book and chits are easy to make.
>boarding mechanics
Don't remember if it has them, sadly. And there aren't any other solitaire fleet combat rules I'm aware of.

>antiquity
Rangers of Shadow Deep is technically a Dark Ages, low-fantasy game. That said you could easily run it with Ancients models. Robust solo rules, lots of modules, and if you run it with the old "swap inches for cm" hack you can use 15mm or 20mm models for it easily. Your animal NPCs is a matter of getting a tube of plastic critters from China, and a sampler box of cheap orcs and skeletons from almost any of the 15mm or plastic 20mm companies is a few bucks.
With either of those two some quick-and-dirty papercraft terrain will be very easy to find, and a lot of that can fold up flat for storage.

You could also try out Brutality. It's meant to be the MOST minis-agnostic game, something where you literally grab six random minis out of a box and build a force with them. Rules themselves don't care whether your missile attack is a sling or an assault rifle, just that you have one. So it's easy to make an Ancients force for it and just refluff a couple things. AI is pretty solid, force building is easy, system is simple and pretty decisive. Background is basic-bitch teenage edgelord crap that actually works for Romans doing Roman Shit. Again, the inches-to-cm with 15mm models hack will work fine here.

Based on the leg the Rhino is pretty set.
I am hoping for a big release, so three boxes.
>1. Box: Doc and Electro
Alternative leader: Doc Ock, 4 threat. Something where he can reroll a dice for a friendly and mostly disruption.
Electro with 2 threat. Similar to Iron Fist he wants to charge. Primarly Damage dealer
>2. Box: Rhino, big box: 3 Points
Large move, lots of disruption and pushes. Can not carry Secure.
>3. Box: Vulture and Sandman
Both 3 points. Vulture is basically Falcon with an enemy carry. Sandman should be a damage dealer.

If you're lucky you might be able to find some of the old minis from the wargame. Hard to find and pretty expensive these days though.
Rebel minis still sells the troopers with some minor alterations to the sculpts though (and interestingly the holocaust judge from judge dredd seems to be starship trooper power armor as well)
If you want a 1:1 match your best bet is probably looking into some 2d printed models.

>>86853034
The pic is almost certainly Rhino. But I'd also like to see Shocker, Scorpion, Sandman, and Vulture. Maybe Chameleon, Spot, or Tombstone for less conventional picks.

There's an Etsy store that sells perfect film Warrior Bugs in 15mm.

Ground Zero Games do 6mm Warrior Bugs. They aren't 100% film accurate (the back body is more mite like, but the jaws are spot on, the changes do make the models very sturdy though).

There are lots of 3d printable warrior bugs

Played OPR scifi skirmish again. Really starting to become a favorite. I was initially skeptical that the simplified statlines would make combat too bland, but it is streamlined and special rules and modifiers for armies make things feel good.
The only weirdness I’ve found so far is in taking veteran quality space marines, they have better combat skills than my marine officers who have no options to upgrade their quality.

Sup /awg/.
I'm writing up a skirmish game; this is a summary of the rules. I plan to upload the full rulebook when it will be done, so let me know if anyone is interested (I expect it will be in the 6-10 pages range).

>Working title 'Chronicles Unsung Fantasy Skirmish'
>Skirmish game for warbands around 10-16 models; d8-based.
>Low magic, dark ages fantasy setting.

>Alternated activations: players take turns activating up to three models at a time, until all models have been activated. Each model acts and moves independently.

>During its activation, a model may move and/or shoot; if they are in base contact with an enemy at any point during their activation, a bout of melee combat takes place during that same activation. When a bout of combat takes place, both the activating model/s and their enemies get to attack; meaning that the same models may fight multiple times in the same round (although with increasing penalties).

>Melee and ranged attacks require a roll to hit (attack roll / shooting roll) and then, if a hit is scored, a wounding roll.
>These rolls have degree of success: a roll to hit may produce a miss, a glancing hit, a full hit, or a critical hit; a wounding roll may have no effect, or bruise the target, or wound them.

>Situational bonuses and penalties are handled through bonus dice and penalty dice, that add dice to the roll but require to discard the worst or best results respectively.
>Conversely, equipment may bring static bonuses; for example, great weapon add to the strength of attacks, whereas armour adds to the wearer's toughness.

(Cont.)
>>
>>86864550

>The game has a morale / panic system, where models may accumulate Panic points over the course of the game. At the end of each round, models with any panic on them must pass a Morale check whose outcomes range from clearing all panic, to gaining more panic, to fleeing.
>A fleeing model immediately moves away, and will have to try and rally on their next activation; if they fail to rally, they are removed from the game, otherwise they just lose the current activation.
>Panic is assigned when nearby models are slain or flee the battlefield, or from the proximity of terrifying enemies, or from the loss of their leader.

>Characters are capable of bolstering the morale of nearby allies within their command range, lending them their own Courage score.
>In addition, characters have a reserve of 'heroic resources' – Valour, Authority, and Favour – that they can spend during the battle. These serve respectively to improve their own rolls, bolster the rolls of allies under command range, and reduce enemy rolls against themselves.

>Some character are capable of conjuring spells, which require the expense of their limited supply of Sorcery points. These points may also be spent to combat enemy spells.

>Warbands are assembled from armylists with a budget of points.
>Each warband must have at least one character. In addition, some models may have a Rarity score; for example, the strongest elite infantry and cavalry may have Rarity 1, whereas the biggest monsters like trolls have Rarity 4.
>The maximum Rarity in your warband can't exceed a threshold based on the points limit. For example, the standard warband size would be 250 points, with a Rarity limit of 5.

>Planned armylists are: Realms of men, Barbarians, Dwarves, Elven courts, Orcs, Goblins, Undead, Lizardmen.

Got as far as D8. Not to shit on your creativity, but D8 is awkward. Use D10 or D12 if you require more granularity, or D6 if you don't.
>>
>>86864577
I started off with d6, then d10s, and then playtesting led me to d8s. D6 doesn't have enough granularity but d10 is in an awkward spot where having a +1 bonus isn't incisive enough for my needs but a +2 is too much. D8 is serving me much better.

Why did mantic stop basic their kings of war armies individually? I quite like how multibasing looks but as a warhammer fantasy analog the single bases looks way better.
It feels odd to see to me.
Is it overconfidence, setting itself apart from wfb? We will see how that goes I guess.
>>
>>86864895
I think it's a consequence of them dropping casualty removal. If you aren't using models as wound counters, there's less imperative to make them single based, and fewer bases makes thems easier to move around.
>>
Speaking of kings of war I want to start an undead army. Should I start with a skeleton Horde?
I want mostly skeletons like an ancient army raised again.
So I was thinking skeleton Horde, revenant regiment and revenant cavalry to as the basis of the army but I don't know if that's any good or anything.
Took me ages to work out revenant vs skeletons

I'm looking for a small plane game I could use to represent the interceptor segments of X-com. I'm trying to put together an x-com like game and I've decided that it would be easier to just add on another ruleset for the interceptors rather than trying to find a system that can accommodate everything. I'm not looking for anything too complex, just something so that 3-5 players would have a bit of a challenge trying to shoot down the different UFO's
>>
>>86864550
>>86864553
Sounds perfectly serviceable.
10-16 is an interesting model count range I don't see as much so that's cool.
Panic tokens might get fiddly to track on the board, would have to see it in operation.
No personal problem with D8, people might find it awkward though.
Campaign system planned?

Thank you anon.
You may be right about panic, that's something I haven't yet tested much in this version of the game (I was working on a mass battles versions first, and panic worked fine there, but admittedly you had to track 4-6 units on the field instead of 12+ individual models). I'll see how it plays out on future tests, if necessary I may just swap it for a general 'test for the whole warband' thing.

I do plan to have a campaign progression system, with charts for experience, recruitment, loot and non-combat followers.
I'm still deciding on how experience should work for the basic warriors, but what I have in mind at the moment is just the possibility for them to upgrade to a more elite warrior type with experience, rather than being able to gain any random bonus and become their own customized profile. Characters, on the other hand, will be able to get anything from extra heroic resources to stat bonuses to new special rules.
