I think the most important change for Round 4 is Maverik gets to participate.

After that I would suggest a tweak to the mechanics to encourage more action instead of sitting around like a vulture waiting for the brawling to end then moving in. Not very honorable or wolf like IMO.

One change I see addressing that would be restricting wound allocation of a body to the person who actually won the combat and knocked him out. Nobody else can swoop in and benefit from it. So if you sit around while someone dispatches 3 or 4 opponents you are at a disadvantage. To the victor go the spoils.

Maybe the scouts could be the exception to this rule making them a better option in future games. It fits them to be patient and wait.

And finally...I agree rending is a bit over the top. The GH is superior to the upgraded brawlers as Firenze experienced twice over. Ignore armor > 2+ save

I'd like to see Mav participate. Perhaps someone else can just roll for combats involving him while he manages the game otherwise?

I like the restriction of wound-allocation TigX, but I think to remove the "Swoop in and gank the corpse" method would just oversimplify the fight. While "To the victor go the spoils" applies, so to does "Defend what you've earned." Quickedit: Perhaps a sort of "Killer gets first preference", in the case of two combatants killing each other simultaneously?


What I'd like to do, perhaps, is find a way to extend the game a bit. Sure, there will be early kills, but perhaps multiple-wound brawlers, or the ability to run away from a fight where you're obviously outmatched.

Can't take credit...not my figure. Found it using GIS but I figured Ghrond needed a proxy after that story. When I get around to making him it will be similar.

The only time I mowed through opponents like that on the table-top battlefield was when I played Harlequins. My Solitaire went through 2 squads of IG in two turns breaking each, survivors, at the end of each turn. Then charged and took out the remaining HQ element. In 3 turns there were 17 dead Guardsmen and the remnants of two squads running for the table edge to their extraction zone.......by one Solitaire.

One and ONLY time I ever experienced a similar feat first hand.

I wast thinking of getting rid of the wound allocation altogether and give everyone 2 wounds to begin with. Also what do people think of, once you lose your first wound, you automatically restart to your original location? because if you get up right away, the chances of losing another wound would be pretty great, especially since people have been teaming up allot at these brawls.

I'm keeping the "Mark of the Wulfen" on the Grey Hunters, but removing the rending as suggested. I still don't know what to do with Wolf Scouts, if anyone has any ideas that would be great. Any thoughts or suggestions with these changes? sorry it took so long, I've been busy with work and painting my lost company. Looking forward to hearing some good ideas from you all.

You could always use a scatter dice to send them D6 in a random direction, to resemble the fact they took a direct punch and was sent reeling, possibly even creating potencial for further mayhem when the bodys colide with other combatants.

Okay, Mav. I know you've been busy and whatnot. Shall we go through a point by point adjustment of the classes at large? For instance, we start with Grey Hunter, submit suggestions, confirm suggestions, officially change, then move on to the next class? I think that'd be a great way of advancing this quite satisfactorily and enable us to get it on it's feet fairly soon.

How about giving the scout rending the first time he engages in close combat? To represent him attacking from an undefended angle or targeting weakpoints in the foeman's armor.

I like the allowance to redeploy before the brawl begins. That should be left in IMO. Perhaps something like "Aimed Shot" modified: once per round/turn/opponent, if a 6 is rolled on one the of the Scouts attacks, only a 6 save will result in not taking a wound against that attack.

So out of the two attacks, if one of the rolled dice is a 6 - it counts as an aimed shot and the defender has to roll a 6 in defense of that attack or take a wound. If no 6 is rolled on the attack, then the Scout just didn't take the time to aim his blow. I think this is balanced without being too complicated.

after reading night three, I can see that the rending was a little much for allot of people. Good rolls on your part, but a bit over-powered. I think it's wise to remove the rending altogether for the Grey Hunter. I think the Wolf Scout should get two wounds? Growler's suggestion on the aimed shot sounds cool. But the -1 attack suggested by hendrik in the beginning of combat against a Wolf Scout sounds fluffy also!

How about everyone gets a Ld roll if they lose all their wounds? if they pass, they stay on fighting... only they have -1 weapon skill and -1 attack during combat.
