It is a powerful visual metaphor for my posting.


Again point out that your greater daemon can be defeated by a sufficiently hench doorframe.

Or maybe that's what the crab claws are for, the daemon can actually go faster sideways.

How would the dog wear goggles and even more than that, who makes the goggles?



i think the slaaneshi demons have historically been held back by the fact they refused to do anything that wasn't either 'hot babe with crab claws' or 'hideous monster with one tit'

the newer designs do a better job of the genderfluidity aspects that made nerds too uncomfortable to do before. will nerds be mad at they/them demons? probably. but i think keepers of secrets canonically use all the pronouns they want. n'kari alternates between he and she at random.

Thanks to everyone who explained, also the art

Follow up question, what is the Great Horned Rat's domain? I mean, obviously Skaven, but I also read somewhere that he's meant to embody ruin and decay (and decay not in a Nurgle sense, more the deterioration of civilisations?) I'm wanting to brush up on my Skaven lore, going to play them when Old World launches.

This thread has turned me to big rule-making rats

Horned Rat's Domain is ruin and decay correct. Nurgle has a twisted cycle of death and rebirth that creates horrible noxious things. The Horned Rat is more of destroying everything so utterly only the most pathetic vermin could survive in wasteland left afterwards.

But the Rat has has a bunch of issues like the fact that it is not united on anything. Here is a fun entry on him from the recent AoS RPG.

Sega 32X posted:

So, after a few successful Normal campaigns in Vortex (Krox Gar Lizard men, High Elves and Brettonia) and a pretty easy first 50 turns of an Orc campaign, I decided to move up difficulties to Hard and try Mortal Empires. And I'm getting wrecked -- first I tried Manfred and I'm in control but getting ground down in the 30s (and just not having much fun in battles). Then I tried Grombrindal the White Dwarf, who I read was the strongest Dwarf lord, and I just was continually battered by orcs from 3 directions and ultimately wiped out by a waagh around turn 40. (I have only TWW1&2 and the free DLC.)

Is Mortal Empires a lot harder than Vortex, or am I just not good enough for Hard difficulty in general?
Late to this but the difficulty ratings given to each LL in the start screen are years out of date. Dwarfs is in no way an "Easy" start now. If you do ever want to try it again, you have to play tall in The Silver Road for quite a few turns because you will get krumped from Death Pass to the south, the Badlands to the West and occasionally from Mount Gunbad to the north. You'll need to build up to a full stack fairly quickly and then recruit a second army to hold Silver Road while you use your first army to go and smash things. You can either beeline for Gunbad, which is one of the richest provinces available, or you can go south and try to take Black Crag, which is also pretty rich and will set Grimgor back pretty badly if you can take it. Wall up every single minor settlement you take, since it makes the AI much more reluctant to attack them and will give you much-needed freedom of movement.

A few random tips:

- Your defence army should usually be in ambush stance near either Pillars of Grungni or Mount Squighorn so you can bait the AI into attacking the city and the fight their stack with your stack plus the garrison
- Karaz-a-Karak has a really strong garrison and should be able to fight off most sieges by itself for a long time
- If you can raze Karag Dron early on then it will slow the greentide down a bit because they will often try to resettle it with a full stack, losing a big chunk of their troops in the process. You can then go and kick it over again and repeat the process
- As soon as you get some Oathgold, forge some cheap +melee defence stuff for your lord. You can use him to tarpit several units of Boyz or Goblins at once and then fire grudge throwers into the melee. They'll basically never hit your lord but will get hundreds of kills each.
- Thorgrim is a better tank than Grombrindal and starts with a grudge thrower. On the other hand grudge throwers are pretty easy to get, and you can make Grombrindal into a decent tank in his own right. Grombrindal also starts with Irondrakes, which take a long time for Thogrim to get and which absolutely pulverise early-game Greenskin stuff. Plus his blue line is amazing.
- Quarrelers are your friend against early-game Greenskins.

i think thats mostly because theyre horny for daemonettes, not because of their firm commitment to genderfluid hedonism

edit: ive noticed that on the new slaanesh miniatures the demons are all referred to as they/them which is neat, i hope CA carries that over for n'kari and co

You've got to admire the audacity of releasing a physical edition that contains a 4-year old game, complete with the two most (currently) worthless DLC race packs.
I guess they could add the Blood DLC as a separate disc as well.

In theory their missile units get bonus accuracy while standing in trees, but CA didn't think that through because it doesn't matter when the majority of their super accurate shots don't make it out of the forest.
