Because he needs to change sides and can't go hop between good and evil formations.

Chose Ambushers, but cloaks I completely overlooked I think.

Hi,

I love that you have put so much love into the game WOTR. Thanks! Some of the stats seem a little overpowered to me. I know they are based on SBG stats and you've worked hard to translate them to WOTR. I'm new to this board but have played WOTR for years. Sorry I wasn't around to give input to this body of work while you were doing it.

Hey Gothmog, just like to say thank you for all the effort you put into these profiles. Me and my mate always want to use the new stuff but were disappointed that GW killed this game before making profiles for so many figs.

Question though, how would you say you have balanced the points of these profiles. Would you say they are inline with how the GW points are printed or how much you think everything should cost, like in some of your house rules pricing?

Also I really like the PDF that was created a few pages back, were any more created?

Thanks again for these profiles it really is appreciated!

Hi there

What I did was take out the extremes (like the really underpowered High Elves and Spectres, and the really overpowered/underpriced like Gundabad Blackshields) and then used the Games Workshop points scheme. So in a sense, I've tried to maintain balance with the units themselves and yet not made them un-viable thanks to GW's less than stellar attempt at points balancing. I did once, a while ago, adjust the points slightly so that they matched house rules, but decided that for other people who may wish to use different house rules or none at all, this would be better.

The pdfs available at the moment, are this Desolation of Smaug one:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/375 ... 0Smaug.pdf

And this of the Misty Mountains faction:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/375 ... action.pdf

I'll shortly contact dreadaxe and see if he has any more done.

Your welcome, and thank you for using these profiles.

Hey thanks for the links. I'm really interested in getting a PDF for all of the profiles that you've made. It would be really nice to have them all together in one uniformed package instead of flicking through these pages.

Little bit of necromancy perhaps (but it's kinda hard to do necromancy on such a long running project given that there'll doubtless be updates to come).

Anyway, super glad to have found this thread, as I've lately been busy transcribing all the SBG and WoTR rules into a word document so that I'll always have a backup, and I was thinking that for completeness I'd like rules for the post-WoTR models. Some of this stuff is exactly in line with ideas I already had, but a lot of it I'll use. Good on you Gothmog for putting it all together!

Special Rule for Sebastian: Sebastian the Hedgehog may be taken as an upgrade either for Radagast the Brown or Radagast on Sled for 5pts. If Sebastian is taken, at the start of the fight phase, before Heroic or Epic Actions are declared, the controlling player must make 1 attack at Strength 1 against a single enemy formation or hero in base contact with Radagast. Radagast may not use his Might points to modify this result.


Only 5 pts.

Did anyone ever do a PDF for Goblin town?

I saw the others and they are brilliant - well done!

Yes, I will get WotR profiles for these up on here soon, hopefully in the next few days, but by Sunday at the latest. As you can see, I haven't been one here much lately, but I will be again.

Gothmog: same here regarding not being around and coming back. But looking forward to see even more of your work.

Dreadaxe: Is there not a new forum-wide rule regarding GW/FW only models now? Third party copyright breaches and such.
