Araby elephant mount and Albion Downpour spell
« on: October 06, 2018, 11:44:23 AM »
Dear Community,

I have noticed a couple of inconsistencies between similar things found in different lists.

Firstly, the Araby Elephant mount for a character. This is listed as +65 pts for Terror and +1 attack.

The Carnosuar for Lizardmen and Bull Rhinox for Ogres are identical character mounts but grant Terror and +2 attacks for +65 pts.


I believe this discrepancy was raised in an earlier edition and the Araby Elephant mount was upgraded to be identical to the others - so for 65 pts you get +2 attacks and Terror.

 Is it correct to assume that the Araby Elephant mount should grant +2 attacks and Terror for +65 pts?



Secondly, the Downpour spell from the Albion list imposes a -1 command penalty to all enemy troops within 30 cm of the casting wizard. The spell casting value is 5+.

This spell appears to be identical to the Anger of the Gods spell from the Chaos list and the Sandstorm spell from the Araby list.
All appear to grant the same effect, a -1 penalty to command for enemy troops that are ordered within 30 cm of the casting wizard.
However, the Chaos spell and Araby spell can be cast on a 4+.


Is it intentional that the Albion spell is harder to cast?

Many thanks for your thoughts and feedback.

Iain

Hi, Iain, good spot, thanx again.
The elefant issue is my personal editing omition, as we woted in WMRC for increasing the attacks to +2. The Albion spell simply escaped our attention. 
 If you had come with it some three monts earlier, it could be incorporated in 1.0 armies. Alas, we have to wait for next update, which won't happen any time sone, as the 1.0 has been just few months out.

Is there any way you could make a 'living FAQ' page to include this kind of thing?

Perfect.

I guess there's the original Word(?) file for the armies book on your hard drive. Presumably you're putting these edits in as they occur, to save possibly missing them in the next version?

Excellent- Thanks

The next army list collection will probably be out long before my Arabians hit the field anyway  :P
