Ok thanks, I am now confused about the point cost for the skinks. I have the generals handbook, am I reading it correctly that my unit of 10 skinks would cost 80 points? So 20 skinks would be 160 points? I’ve seen some people with a unit of 11 or 12 skinks. How do you figure out the points cost for them units?
I don't want to sound like I'm saying RTFM here, but it does seem to me that you need to read the core rules in a bit more detail. By all means continue to ask questions here too, but reading the rules cover-to-cover will really help you grok the core concepts of the game. It did for me. Relying on learning the game from your mates at the LGS
isn't always the most effective, especially if they themselves don't understand the rules all that well.
AND THAT BEING SAID, I would take this opportunity to point out that this is (in my mind) THE major problem with AoS
. The newer, friendlier GW
has made this huge effort to amend rules faster, put out FAQs
, erratas, commentaries, etc. This is all well and good from a veteran player perspective, but I think the breakneck pace of these changes really has had a negative impact on new players of the game. When a battletome can come out and a week later have massive parts of the text invalidated, or when the rules (and points) change between GHB
editions, and then change again when the GHB
is FAQed/errataed a week later...it can be awfully confusing. Not to mention the random addition of rules in supplements (Malign Sorcery, etc) that could completely elude even someone who plays the game somewhat regularly.
What I am trying to say here is, don't feel bad that you are confused. Some of us who "know the game" are often confused as well. GW
has not yet figured out how to get all their ducks in a row on this issue. The app/Azyr is a good step towards a "single source of truth"...but even that is often a bit behind on being updated. Hopefully they figure this out soon though, because it certainly turns me off and I consider myself in the know, I can only imagine how it must seem to brand new players.
