I just want Kislev. They’ve had models and an army before. With bear Calvary. Where’s my bear Calvary?

Those AI changes sound pretty great.  Seems like they are trying to make the AI a lot less cheaty.

New changes look great - interested in how the auto-resolve will be changed and if they can make it fairer. Skaven especially seem to just get hammered by auto-resolve and whilst they're a great race to play, I got quickly tired of fighting every single battle.

I've been thoroughly enjoying the update and DLC. The Undercity mechanic for the Skaven is so much fun. I established an initial Undercity underneath Talabheim and, using the "Subterrainian Pit" building line it's been spreading outwards to neighbouring regions including Altdorf, Nuln, Wurtbad and Marienburg, generating income based off the cities own income per turn.

The discoverability mechanic is different from how I thought it was. I though it was a percentage each turn to be discovered, however, it's actually a score out of 100.
Say, you make a building that raises discoverability by 80 points. The enemy then builds a counter building in their city on the surface that increases their discoverability by +30. The 100 discoverability max is then reduced to 70, exposing your Undercity. As a counter, you can build your own counter buildings that lower your discoverability by -20 to -40 reducing your 80 to 60 or 40 and keeping it under the new threshold.
There's also a building that reduces your discoverability by -40 in one step but you lose vision over the region.

A nice detail is, as long as the settlement isn't razed, your undercity remains if the settlement above exchanges hands.

It's so much fun seeing the Skaven symbols floating over enemy cities and having them generate income for you all sneakily-like.

Is the new undercity mechanics for all skaven or just the new Lord?

It's for all Skaven factions. Indeed, Queek Headtaker actually starts the Mortal Empires campaign with an undercity beneath Karak Eight Peaks.

Oh that’s pretty sweet.

Am a fan of undercities. Especially as a reasonably quiet one can produce 2 food and have a chance to spread the undercity to nearby settlements each turn.

The more splashy bonuses i’m relatively uninterested in. If i’d wanted to take your city, there wouldn’t be an undercity there.

Yeah, I kind of agree with that. Though since the Undercity doesn't disappear if you sack the above settlement having +300% sacking and all the other bonuses might be useful to make a bunch of money at once.

Until you ride a personal killiness Louen Leoncoeur into his face after popping the Lion's Shield and getting hit dead on by a Doomrocket.


I can only imagine what he was thinking when he saw his prized not!Nuke fail to kill this man-thing because of a enchanted shield.


I do know what was going through his mind, though, the Sword of Couronne.

Found this really helpful video on how to play the Lizardmen.

Okay but how do you go not bankrupt?
Lizardmen have to spend a lot more time on construction than other factions.  Their fully developed provinces are (IMO) more useful than those of other factions, so that's the price they pay.

In the early game get used to having a mix of units some of which are much more durable than others.  That's pretty much their theme.  Saurus warriors + shields, and chameleon skink skirmishers are both standouts of their early lineup.

You misspelled seance.  Are possessing Draignean?  Are you actually a ghost in the shell? You have to tell us if you are, that's the rule

So, I'm playing Ikit on Mortal Empires, and I was ending my turn, and I noticed that Varg's turn is taking quite long

Like, longer than Lothern.
Lothern's united all of Ulthuan

I... I'm scared...

Been getting a crash to desktop glitch when I try to autoresolve against greenskins lately. Happened with empire and lizardmen so far, both times in fights between goblins and minor settlements of mine.
