    Question:

    Why do Phoenix Guards have blue mist around them?

    Everything you need is here

    http://warhammerfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Phoenix_Guard

    For me it sounds lore friendly

    While their stony quiet is unnerving, the aura of godly might that surrounds them is far more horrifying. Their eyes blaze with a fiery intensity borne of unshakable faith in the Creator God of the Elves, and the air around a regiment of Phoenix Guard literally throbs with the raw power of Asuryan.

    Looks like Loremaster has access to Lore of Life and Shadows at least:



    And some peculiar book ability I don't know what is:




    Cool!

    Loremasters of Hoeth in TT are basically Swordmasters who can also cast basic spells from all of the 8 Lores. I expect they'll get one spell from each lore in game, or at least one spell each from six lores.

    The Book Icon is the Book of Hoeth, which grants a huge winds recharge. Not sure if it's an actual unit ability or just a magic item he had equipped.

    [quote]Spearmen look like they are about Empire Spear+Shield equal just higher leadership cause elves and higher melee defence because of their racial feature thing.

    Would be fine for me. [/quote]

    They also have +10 armor and silver shields over Empire Spearmen, should be a very cost effective basic defensive unit.

    I wonder if Mazdamundi and Teclis will get random spells from each lore, that would be easier than just making all 8 lores, for one characters, just at beginning of battle there should be like random spells you can choose. It might be difficult from campaign perspective for sure.

    At first I thought those aura are only visible whenever phoenixes are nearby but since it's lore friendly, it's ok....

    Okay, I do think the Red and Blue looks fine on them, but I just noticed there is NO faction with the traditional Blue and White colour scheme. What the hell is going on there? When I play as the High Elf main faction I would very much prefer to be Blue and White rather than Red and Blue. Like I said Red and Blue does look good but the fact that neither Tyrion nor Teclis even get access to the iconic(to throw around a very much over used word, sorry but in this case it is true I feel) Blue and White is just silly. Hell, there isn't even any white anywhere on the shields. Did the designers just look at the base grey models and not look at any artwork or anyhting?

    Though I do now notice that the LSG at the least are indeed White and Blue(with the Red Dragon) so there is that atleast I suppose(LSG look fantastic by the way, props to CA on them). And Dragon Princes funnily enough now that I think about it.

    I just realized that CA has done a reload animation for the chameleons.

    maaan, i need one for the empire gunner and so...

    i think the bolt thrower also has a reload animation... would be nice for the cannons etc.

    Hey we've had special people complaining about races being named after the army book for months. There is no HE factions from the looks of it so you get no HE official standard colours.

    Thank "The Empire should be Reikland" morons for that.

    I'm also really excited to see no purple dark elves. But at least the name will be "correct".

    Geniuses.

    You said you wanted feedback on the shields CA?

    How about giving us a classic blue and white HE colour scheme. I'm amazed I even have to make this comment.

    It clearly isn't because they literally showed us they literally showed us all the shield varieties. There is no White and Blue despite it being basically THE High Elf color scheme that everyone knows.

    i thought high elves are noble but these shield colors... really shamefull. this colorfull look belongs to lizardmen i think. they are tribal, believes in old gods. high elves seems most noble race in fantasy and they dont look noble in game. now im ninety percent certain about most popular mod of game 2
  • Mr_Finley7Mr_Finley7 Junior Member Registered Users Posts: 6,213
    Please CA! Give us the traditional blue and white! The blue and red sucks! Most of the other HE faction colors didn't look very good either...

    There is always some faction that has to gripe about something. There's no pleasing some people. I think the Red addition to the Blue and White of the HEs make its better. I also think the shields are just fine.

    Personally I cant wait for the Phoenixes... its my favourite mythological creature to see it so well designed is great. I I think I will play HE first just because of that... the fact they have dragons and awesome looking units is a + in my book. I cant wait for some High Elves vs Dwarf battles I will make lol...

    Did they show us every shield? They showed us a bunch of shields, but I don't remember them saying it was all of them and there weren't any more.

    A bunch?, they showed 14 subfactions in the frame, how many subfactions do you think the HE have?

    And for those who are asking for classic color scheme subfation, I think that actually the subfation in this gameplay will be that faction, just looks like they add some red to the white and blue scheme. I mean, this faction dont looks like Eataine, the Tyrion faction the campaign trailer, actually is mostly blue and white except for the shields and some details.
  • Mr_Finley7Mr_Finley7 Junior Member Registered Users Posts: 6,213

    Am I the only one getting Pokémony wibe from the Phoenixes? Especially in the start when they hover behind the infantry line? Overall love the look of the second game.

    I hated the addition of the phoenixes in 8th ed. for this very reason.

    My point is that people are acting like there is no possible way there could be another color combination as if they said those were the only color schemes. I was questioning that as I don't remember them saying there won't be a blue/white scheme. I'm only saying people can still have hope they'll have a blue/white scheme unless they actually say there won't be.

    XD lol, you know people are just looking for things to hate when a creature like the Phoenix is claimed to be too close to a bloody Pokemon

    Phoenixs are one of the most interesting mythical creatures lyke dragons, as that they work very well with elves concept, as proud and majestic creatures.

    first time i watched the video i thought: nice, untis look amazing. but no real: wow, this is totaly amzaing.

    after some more times i think. i miss something in this video.
    they show us the good looking models. and in the battle we see that the spearman hold first charge. and after this we most time see the 2 phönix. dragonprinces get beaten. sivlerhelms just win because a unit of spearman support them. the main frontlinke looks like they would break without phönix support. and the 2 boltthrowers and 2 seaguards need a freaking long time to shot down carnosaurus and he was in fight with phönixguard ( who CA say they are for killing great units ) and spearman.
    we didnt see something special from Tyrion or loremaster.
    have the feeling the HE army just won because of 2 phönix.

    just mean i miss: the wow, this unit(s) are/is epic in battle, like we see in lizardman trailer. for me it feels more like an slightly buffed empire clone with dragons adn phönixes but less artyoptions.
  • SeldkamSeldkam Senior Member Registered Users Posts: 4,455
    Well another thing is, we don't have the entire battle. We don't know what was going on really in the cinematic shots since they're zoomed in meaning most of that time is wasted in terms of situational awareness.

    That being said, considering the cost f what phoenixes probably will be... I think they did their job really.
