We played a 12 player HOTT campaign in 28mm using D3H2 last weekend. Many wonderful armies mostly from old warhammer models. I appreciate the work, making HOTT playable with the DBA3 rules.
But there were some problems and some questions, so here is a list. I hope it is some help for making D3H2 better.
First my wishes:
- PLEASE include a version number in your file. I was really pissed, that i painted an army for this event and noticed at the event, that all other players had a different point list. And we had no possibility to see, what is the actual version. So i had to change my army, because my list, was build with a 1 pt. cheaper Behemoth.
- I didnt analyse the shooting rules, but was told, they are different from DBA 3. IMO D3H2 should only give players of DBA3 the opportunity to play HOTT, not change the core rules. (Not even to make them better.)
- I think having the fast/solid option in a point based rule system leads to min-maxing. Why have solid blades or warbands, when the fast version is so much better. But ok., it is also in DBA 3. But having the same category for mounted IMO is a wrong move. Especially fast cavalry who have a higher basic move than LH feels weird.
- Two different versions: Behemoth with 3 or 4 pts. What is right?
- Behemoth p. 12: Flee from artillery shooting. The overwiew: Artillery kills Behemoth.
- Beasts: p. 10: +3/+4. Overwiew: +4/+3.
How does the TZ of aerials work:
- Can an aerial TZ a non-aerial element?
- Can a non-aerial element TZ a flying element? If yes, what can the non-aerial do, because he cant attack the aerial. Can he pass under the aerial?
- Can an aerial element TZ an aerial element?
- Sneakers: Do they irgnore TZs? Or can they only pass trough the TZing element?
- Gods. How are they handled regarding lost APs? i.e. p. 14 only lists "recoiled, fled and been pushed back across the battlefield edge", but not "leave". IMO are gods to weak, if they give the enemy automatic 4APs, but it should be explicitely stated.
Many thanks Frank
