In my current permutation I've been treating it as a special ability a minifig buys ("training" i guess). The current wording is something like this
Shieldwall (+2 CP): A squad of minifigs must have large shields or this ability does nothing. At the beginning of each turn, choose one: +2 armor bonus or 1/3 cover bonus (adds to existing cover). If the squad takes -2” move, it gains both.
But that could be easily modified if automatic parries and +1 or +2 to POP seems more thematic (and less like everyone just donning more armor).

That's not bad, I forgot that technically this formation gives cover for the figs :idea:

Oh, I forgot you have a basic range of 10" not 12" I'm off to the corner after a right telling off. :oops:

Well yeah, long-range was nerfed from 12 to 10 inches quite a while.

For shield walls I simply give the units +1 to their parry rolls. If enemies attack from the front and they have actions they will always act first and thus such an attack is very risky. However if they're attacked from the flank they can't do anything. Therefore it's mostly a defensive formation that needs it's flanks covered, which is a realistic interpretation, I think. Getting in and out of formation (like when you need to watch for attacks on the flank) would require an action except if there's an officer / general near (the general is a unit type that affects all units around him in a radius the same way an officer attached to a squad would).

The elves are great. Perhaps they could use some knives. The phalanx would look even better with custom helmets but it's not absolutely necessary. Good to see you're getting more and more factions and stuff.

A little pimpage for the undead:

Originally I wanted to do an Iron Lich (Heretic is quite an inspiring game); a giant floating metal skull that belches destructive magik, but it turned into a semi-sentient artillery piece, an amalgamation of technology and magik. I'm still working on stats.

A LITTLE pimpage?
My doctor says I have an obsession with vengance. We'll just see about that
My 550th post was "JANE-FREAKIN-GOODALL".

Okay, more dumpage (this will devolve into a showing what's new and check the wiki for stats thread I guess):

Image

Image

Image

A bit of a perfectioning of the Doom Wailer (that's my initial name for him); now it has crew, is portable, and overall more menacing.

Image

Ork Rock Lobbaz. I'm retiring the bannerboys and give their standards to the trolls so the greenskins can have a bit more 'dakka'.

Image

Dragon-Ogre, your what has science done/mother nature is one sick fuck creation. The raging beasts tantrums are kept in control by his beastmaster champiork. Guess what happens if that dies...

Also, some addition to the mercenary/royal elites:

Image

Löwengard Ritters

Image

Drakhirrim wyrm-riders

Image

And finally a rogue titan (no, not Serphos. he's dead).

Whatever you do next is gonna be good, there's just so much to kill 8) What's the rogue titan from? Could you show a pic of his face?
