Design a Unit - Units

by Avian

From each category (Light infantry, Heavy Infantry, etc.) you can design any number of units with a Rarity of 0 for your army, as long as they belong to the same race as you. You can also design one unit with a Rarity of 1 or more from each category, again as long as it belong to the same race as you.

You can design units from a different race and take them as Dogs of War. If they have a Rarity of 0 they are unlimited Rare for your army. If they have a Rarity of 1 or more you must pay an additional +1 pt/model for each point of Rarity and the unit will be 0-1 Rare.

In case of contradictions the unit entries are overruled by the special abilities section, which is in turn overruled by the races section.

If you have any problems study the examples at the end of this section and hopefully it will be more clear.

Chaos armies
Mortal and Beast units in armies led by a Daemonic general have an additional +1 Rarity and vice-versa. Note that units created using this system does not follow the system where all Mortal/Beast/Daemonic units are Core if your general is Mortal/Daemonic.
The number of Bestigor units may not be greater than the number of Gor units.

Orcs & Goblins
Only one unit in the army may be Big 'Uns (Elite + Strongmen) and as usual you must have at least the same number of "Regular 'Uns" as Big 'Uns (see Orcs & Goblins army book page 6).

Examples

Example 1 - Dark Elf House Guard (Medium infantry)...............10 pts/model (Core)

House Guard are private soldiers hired by wealthy Dark Elves to protect their houses and towers from their rivals. They are sometimes brought along to battle by their masters where they wield wickedly sharp halberds.

  M WS BS S T W I A Ld
House Guard 5 4 4 3 3 1 5 1 8
Guard Captain 5 4 4 3 3 1 5 2 8

Unit size: 10+
Equipment: Rending Halberds and Light armour
Special rules: The House Guard's Halberds are Armour piercing.

Options:

Choices taken: Elves with Light armour (7) + Halberds (2) + Redinding weapons (1) = 10 pts
Rarity: 0
Notes: The House Guard do not get a rarity increase for taking Rending weapons because they are Dark Elves.

 

Example 2 - Tilean Assassins (Light infantry)...............13 pts/model (Rare)

For the right ammount of coin a general with contacts in the Tilean underworld can secure the services of the Guild of Assassins. These masters of infiltration will sneak behind the enemy line, attacking unguarded war machines and falling upon enemy leaders and wizards when they think themselves safe.

  M WS BS S T W I A Ld
Assassin 4 4 3 3 3 1 4 1 7
Assassin Master 4 4 3 3 3 1 4 2 7

Unit size: 5-15
Equipment:
Two poisoned hand weapons and poisoned throwing knives
Special rules: Assassins are Skirmishers and Scouts

Options:

Choices taken: Humans (3) + Additional hand weapons (2) + Throwing knives (2) + Elite (1) + Poison for hand weapons (2) + Poison for throwing knives (1) + Skirmish (1) + Scouts (1) = 13 pts
Rarity: Originally 0 + 1 (Poison) + 1 (Scouts) = 2
Notes: Their unit size was originally 10+, but since they are Scouts it's altered to 5-15. Note also that although the assassins pay three times for Poison they only get +1 to their Rarity.

 

Example 3 - Sigmarite Chaos Hunters (Heavy infantry)...............15 pts/model (0-1 Rare)

The daemonhunting templars of Sigmar are grim faced and dour men, sworn to root out Chaos wherever it may be found. Clad in the finest armour and wielding mighty double handed warhammers blessed by the Grand Theogonist himself.

  M WS BS S T W I A Ld
Chaos Hunter 4 4 3 3 3 1 3 1 8
Justicar 4 4 3 3 3 1 3 2 8

Unit size: 10+
Equipment: Blessed Great Hammers and Full plate armour.
Special rules: The Chaos Hunters Hate all models in a Chaos army and are Immune to Fear. Their Great Hammers count as magical weapons.

Options:

Choices taken: Humans with light armour (4) + Great weapons (2) + Superheavy armour upgrade (3) + Anointed weapons (2) + Disciplined (1) + Elite (1) + Hatred (specific) (1) + Immune to Fear (1)
Rarity: 0 + 1 (Anointed weapons) + 1 (Disciplined) + 1 (Immune to Fear)
Notes: I could have given them I4 for free, but decided to let them stay at I3 because it felt more appropriate for a unit with Great weapons.

 

Example 4 - Knights of Holy Wrath (Heavy cavalry)...............23 pts/model (Special)

The stronghold of the Knights of Holy Wrath is situated in the dark region of Sylvania. Caught in a hopeless struggle against the seemingly endless numbers of undead that infest that land the knights have become bitter and twisted as the land itself. Showing no mercy towards those who oppose them they are now only barely held in check by the willpower of their Grand Master.

  M WS BS S T W I A Ld
Knight 4 4 3 3 3 1 3 1 8
First Knight 4 4 3 3 3 1 3 2 8
Warhorse 8 3 - 3 3 1 3 1 5

Unit size: 5+
Equipment: Flails and Full plate armour. Ride barded warhorses
Special rules: The Knights of Holy Wrath are subject to Frenzy

Options:

Choices taken: Humans on warhorses with heavy armour (13) + Flails (2) + Superheavy armour upgrade (2) + Barding (2) + Disciplined (1) + Elite (1) + Frenzy (2) = 23
Rarity: 0 + 1 (Disciplined)
Notes: I could have given them I4 for free, but human knight are generally all I3, so I left it. The Inner Circle option is the Strongmen ability, which adds +1 to their Rarity, making them 0-1 Special. It is worth noting that if joined by their Grand Master the knights' Frenzy will be nullified, as his presence makes them Immune to Psychology.

 

Design a unit of Weapon Teams

Weapons team are rather unique things consisting of a team of two operators manning a single large missile weapon, much like a small war machine.

Initial Rarity: 1
Unit size: 3-10

Who can be a unit of weapon teams?
Two Dwarves (all kinds) - 11 pts
Two Elves (all kinds) - 12 pts
Two Goblins (all kinds) - 7 pts
Two Halflings - 7 pts
Two Hobgoblins - 8 pts
Two Humans - 9 pts
Two Skaven - 9 pts

Equipment: Hand weapon
Special rules: Skirmish (except for dwarves)

The crew count as a single model with the profile of one, with two exceptions: It has two attacks and adds +1 to its save, in much the same manner as a cavalry model. The crew should be mounted on a single cavalry base along with their weapon. The unit has a Unit Strength of 2 per team, but the teams otherwise count as roughly man-sized.

Optional missile weapons (must choose one):
Short bows: +2 pts with BS3, +3 pts with BS4
Bows: +4 pts with BS3, +5 pts with BS4
Longbows: +5 pts with BS3, +6 pts with BS4
Crossbows: +5 pts with BS3, +6 pts with BS4
Repeater crossbows: +5 pts with BS3, +6 pts with BS4
Handguns: +5 pts with BS3, +6 pts with BS4
Throwing knives/stars: +2 pts with BS3, +3 pts with BS4
Throwing spears/ javelins: +3 pts with BS3, +4 pts with BS4
Throwing axes: +4 pts with BS3, +5 pts with BS4

Weapon upgrade (must choose one):
Heavy (+2 Strength, +6" Range, Move-or-fire): +4 pts
Long range (+1 Strength, +12" Range)*: +3 pts
* weapons with a normal range of 20" or less only

Model-wise the weapon does not have to be the same type as the one it is based on, a long range axe thrower might be a rock thrower, for example. Feel free to model it as you like, just tell your opponent what it represents.

Optional armour (up to one):
Light armour: +1 pt/team
Pavise (5+ save vs normal and magical missiles): +2 pts/team (all races may have pavises for no increase in Rarity)

Instead of forming units of their own a single weapon team may be attached to a Core infantry unit of the same race when an army list is written. The team will operate as a unit of its own but is deployed together with and within 3" of the parent unit and can use the parent unit's Leadership for all tests as long as it stays within 3" of the parent unit. A weapon team can not be singled out by shooting as long as it is within 3" of a friendly unit of 5 or more models. Weapon teams operating on their own like this may not have pavises.
If taken in this manner the team does not take up a Special / Rare choice, but it's points cost is added to that of the parent unit. The team does not add to the unit size of the unit and count as dead from the moment it is deployed.
A unit may only have one attached weapon team.

All weapons are Move-or-fire, but may be mounted on carts (or towed, should the weapon have wheels) for the price listed below, allowing them greater freedom of movement.
The cart can be drawn at the speed of the animal drawing it and may make march moves. The machine, crew and animal all flee 2D6" or 3D6" depending on the speed of the animal (it is assumed that the crew jump onto the cart or carriage and hitch a lift). Should the crew get charged the animal does not fight, as it is tied into the harness. Should all the crew be killed the cart and animal is removed.

Carts with animals
Dwarves: cart drawn by pony (M6) - 15 pts
Elves (Dark or High): cart drawn by elven steed - 30 pts
Goblins: cart drawn by a boar - 20 pts or wolf (bolt thrower only) - 30 pts
Halflings: cart drawn by pony (M6) -15 pts
Hobgoblins: cart drawn by wolf - 30 pts
Humans: cart drawn by a warhorse - 25 pts

Wood Elves do not use carts and instead they mount their light bolt throwers in Treemen. Up to one bolt thrower may be mounted in each Treeman, bought as a separate Rare choice. The bolt thrower may be fired as a normal missile weapon, so it may fire if the Treeman moves with a -1 to-hit penalty, but may not be fired if he has marched or charged, etc. When shooting at the model hits are randomised as for shooting at a ridden monster, ie. 1-4: hits Treeman, 5-6: hits the Elves. In combat the model fights as a ridden monster, so both Elves and Treeman fights and attackers can choose whether to attack the Elves or the Treeman. Note that as normal the Treeman only has to take a Break test if it is hurt. The bolt thrower is considered to be part of the Treeman and so may not be attacked separately, but is considered to be destroyed if the Treeman is killed.

 

Design a Chariot

Initial Rarity: 1 (may be lowered to 0 at a cost of +20 pts/chariot)
Unit size: 1 (1-2 light or medium chariots of the same type may be bought as a single choice)

Choose a chassie:
Light (S5, T4, W3, 5+ armour save, D6 impact hits) - 20 pts
Medium (S5, T4, W4, 5+ armour save, D6 impact hits) -30 pts
Heavy (S5, T5, W4, 5+ armour save, D6 impact hits) - 35 pts

Special rules: Chariots
Note that chariots built over a light chassie do not follow the same rules as Khemri light chariots.

Who can drive a chariot (two to three models)?
Beastmen Bestigors (medium): +7 pts/crew (1)
Beastmen Gors (medium): +5 pts/crew
Beastmen Ungors (medium): +2 pts/crew
Chaos Warriors (medium or heavy): +13 pts/crew
Elves (Dark or High) (medium or heavy): +6 pts/model
Common Goblins (light): +1 pt/crew (2)
Hobgoblins (light): +2 pts/crew
Humans (Cathay or Norse) (medium): +3 pts/crew
Common Orcs (heavy): +5 pts/crew
Black Orcs (heavy): +9 pts/crew
Savage Orcs (heavy): +6 pts/crew
Skaven (medium): +3 pts/crew
Skeletons (light or medium): +7 pts/crew
(1) A chariot that has one or more Bestigor crew may not have more than two crew.
(2) A chariot crew solely by Common Goblins may have a minimum of three and a maximum of four crew.

A chariot may have a mix of different crew members, though all count as having the WS and Ld of the crew with the highest. Any crew member that has a lower WS and/or Ld must pay +1 pt for each point they increase either stat by.
Example: An Orc & Goblin chariot is driven by one orc and two goblins and counts as having a WS of 3 and a Ld of 7, because that is what the orc has. Each goblin must pay +2 pts to increase their WS and Ld by 1 point each, meaning that the goblins are +3 pts/crew, rather than +1 pt/crew.

Equipment: Hand weapon (Chaos Warriors and Black Orcs also have light armour)

Animals (two to four):
Beastmen: Tuskgors: +13 pts/animal (1)
Chaos Warriors: Chaos Steeds: +8 pts/animal

Orcs: Boars: +9 pts/animal (1)
Skaven: Rat Ogres: +42 pts for the first, +20 pts for the second (4)
Skeletons: Skeletal Steeds: +6 pts/animal
(1) Adds +1 armour save to the chariot.
(2) Each counts as 2 animals towards the limits. Adds +1 Wound to the chariot, +1 Unit Strength and makes the chariot a Large target.

(4) Each counts as 2 animals towards the limits. Adds +1 Wound to the chariot, +1 Unit Strength and makes the chariot a Large target.

A note on War Wagons

To create a War Wagon for your Empire or Kislev army use a heavy chassie drawn by two barded warhorses. Then add the fighting platform described in the Steam Tank rules at the cost listed there. The platform adds +1 Wound and Unit Strength to the wagon and makes it a Large target.
Use the rules listed in the Steam Tank's description, but disregard the parts about fighting or shooting at the crew and the part about them being Unbreakable while the Steam Tank is operative.
+1 Rarity increase.
