Hey,

I had at first some trouble to find out how many points Assault Termies cost because they are listed as base with Hammer/Shield and in the back of the book you have to pay extra and no words of Lightning Claws.
But I still couldnt figure out how much i would have to pay for the Heavy Bolters/Lascannons on a Predator.

It says you can have either 2x Heavy Bolter or 2x Lascannon and in the back it says 15 points for Heavy Bolters.
Do they cost now 15 or 30?
It wouldnt make sense for me to write 15 points and i still have to double it if my only option is to take 2 at the same time.
Imho i would have writen 30 points then, because the only option is to take 2, I cant take only one.

Hopefully someone knows the ture answer^^

Edit: Thanks a lot, 30 points it is.

The entry on the list of points costs isn't a plural. You have to pay twice.

How much was it before? Does 1 method meet what it costs in codex?

No, you get 2 for 15 each, which is 30 total.

And marine 9e codex didn't have predator cost? I'm not asking 8e. I'm asking how much it was on marine codex for 9e in october. If 1 way match that odds are good it's that. Especially if it's cheaper as predator is unlikely to get points hike.

Predator hasn't changed. Codex and 2021 points are the same for both versions.


@OP-
This new points format just seems to confuse some people, but reading the intro should help clear up most of the issues:

If an entry has a unit cost of ‘x pts/model’, then the unit costs x points for every model in that unit. You must then add points for each weapon, or item of wargear, that is included in that unit if it is listed in that unit’s entry (weapons and wargear not listed in a unit’s entry cost no additional points to include in that unit

While it would have made a lot of sense for the points to have been listed as:

* 2 Heavy Bolters +30 points
* 2 Lascannons +40 points

It is none the less still clear that is the cost when listed as:

* Heavy Bolter +15 points
* Lascannon +20 points
