Re: Mixed Warmachine Crew

the war machines have a maximum amount that can crew them, so if the max for the ballista is 4, the crew come in squads of 2 or 4 (not 2 to 4) then your options are either
take the crews skill and have 4 shots
take the Options skill and have 3 shots

Re: Mixed Warmachine Crew

you use his skill
downside is the crew come in sets of 2 or 4, so if you take the Option for the higher skill you sacrifice a shot

Non Mierce Anglecynn Humans - aesthetic?

So with the majority of the Anglecynn miniatures being from the Mierce realm and pretty much looking like a standing army, how would the Beornica, Dēra and Eofora Ḡesith, Duguth, Ḡeoguth etc look? Would they be more dishevelled as they are not as dominant? would there be more pelts etc? or would the...

Re: Kindred Musters Update - 1st October 2018

Probably an ‘as intended’ but humour me.
The weapon crews for the byzantii can come in groups of 2 or 4.
Some weapons like the ballista can be crewed by a maximum of 4.
On Option can be made into a crew member, but this means if you do that you can never have a weapon fully manned

Demonic Possession and weapon crews

can the spell demonic possession be cast on Ballistarius so they can fire their ballista twice? the Ballistarius is the target, but would it work? as in technically are they the ones doing the firing?

also I am assuming the +strength would just be of the men, not of the machine?

Formoraic Muster -
Belech is an overlord but has no compel/influence abilities, so although he is in the Baalor muster, he cannot have a Baalor mainstay, so would have to take either Veteran Reivers (Reivers of the eye) or drilled thulean raiders (far thule)

Vras 'pits'

in the Flint-Fang lore on the site it makes reference to two different types of pit, infernal pits and blood pits.

do the infernal pits have anything to do with the infernii, or is it just a coincidence?

the blood pits implies some kind of arena, is this true?
