New Warhammer FAQ

Postby Brother Vogt » Thu Oct 23, 2014 12:47 pm

New FAQ released yesterday confirming 50% Lords & 50% Heros now in all games

AMENDMENTS
Page 134 – Lords
Replace both paragraphs with: “You can spend up to 50% of
your points on Lords. Lords are the most powerful characters
in your army, individuals possessed of fearsome martial or
magical might.”

Page 134 – Heroes
Replace both paragraphs with: “You can spend up to 50%
of your points on Heroes. Heroes are lesser characters, not
as intrinsically deadly as Lords, but still worth a score of
ordinary warriors.”

Page 135 – Army Selection Summary Table
Replace “Lords – Up to 25%” with “Lords – Up to 50%”
Replace “Heroes – Up to 25%” with “Heroes – Up to 50%”

Page 162 – Spell Generation
At the end of the second paragraph, add:
“The Lore of Undeath is available to any Wizard.”
(see Warhammer Battle Magic: Lore of Undeath or
Warhammer: Nagash, available in digital format at
www.games-workshop.com)

Finally the thin crust of skulls underneath the warhammer world makes sense...it's so everyone can summon the undead!

I hear 40k is good, especially imperial guard ;-) as it happens I may have a guard army for sale ;-) what are the chances of that ... better snap it up while you can Kev.

All because it's 50% dpest mean you have to take 50%.
It does open up more monstrous lord's and hero's and does take away the dilemma of which heroes to take eg I can now take a cauldron, peg Bsb and support wizards. But those points have to come from somewhere else in your list.

Dark elves, lizards, high elves and warriors seem to be able to take advantage the most. Ogres could take a tyrant now too.

I'd would prefer the restrictions of 25% though as it forces a choice.

As I saw posted elsewhere, Steadfast will still keep a lot of stuff at bay.
And there's nothing to prevent people from having an arrangement to play as per the 25%...
However I'll be off painting up Goblin characters....

Finally I can take the Free Company of All Doom as a whole unit of Empire Captains and Generals...

As Tom said you CAN take 50% lords but ultimately will your army be better off for it? For WoC you'd be missing out on skullcrushers or knights for example. The same problem comes up in any list. We may well house-rule it at pigmar but at the moment I'm not convinced it will break the game; particularly at 2400 as opposed to lower points levels.

I play Skaven and don't really benefit too much from this (spam slaves all the way!). I would imagine the benefits will be slightly limited to the armies that have a slightly more elite based agenda anyway.
