HE have always been a relatively settled army in terms of what is covered in the army book, possibly the biggest addition was the Lion Chariot and that was really a bolt from nowhere with next to no fluff on which to base the unit on.
As such the question is an obvious one, if you could rewrite the army book what would you add/change/drop?
New units, special rules, magic items, special characters etc.
It could be from a fluff perspective or a make it work perspective, but I am interested in anything that you think would make for a nice addition/alteration to the army book.
I am going to start with the thing that made me think of this in the first place,
I would like to be able to tailor my heroes to reflect the location that they came from. Similar to Bloodline Powers for Vampires, but a seperate allowance (non-magical allowance) that you can pay to have your Noble/Prince from certain areas of Ulthuan.
These are the ones that I would like
White Tower (Sword Master character)
Caledor (Dragon Prince/ Dragon Rider)
Chrace (White Lion/ Possibly monster handler of some description)
Shadow Lands (Scouting guy)
Ellyrion (Some kind of Expert Horseman rule)
The actual rules would take a bit of balancing but I would really like to be able to legally tailor regional heros particularly from themed army point of view. I really liked that about the 6 edition army book and was sad when it was gotten rid of. I would also like some similar magical abilities because although I am told we have dominant magic, it is to do with Teclis, Banner of Sorcery and Book of Hoeth, not the mages themselves, I would like our mages to reflect the overriding control and discipline that years of working with the ebb flow of the magical currents in the warhammer world has instilled in the race, as well as their natural abilities to weave the flows of magic.
Anyway this is not by any means the only thing that I would change but it would be where I would start. The main areas that I think need adjusting are to do with the internal balance of the book, Core currently serves (almost) no purpose that cannot be filled better elsewhere in the army and as such is seen more of a hindrance than a help in most lists. The disproportionate quality of the 3 special infantry that makes fielding much else a waste of points is also an issue to do with internal balance that I think needs to be addressed.
