Re: 499 list to get started

With your restrictions it is not a bad start, its main weakness is the lack of outright punch which you will find with humans as you scale up but good to see a theme in mind. As you expand I would recommend a Teryn general and look to expand your rhyfelwr pool. You can also get the true dragons in d...

Re: Mustering Characters

Sorry I misread the question as under a single command.

Yeah you can have as many of the same commander you wish, you could even take the same warlord twice with one being the general.

Depends on the trolls not being weary, assuming not then they can attack move as a reaction to then punch the wulfs back. If they were weary then if they dont run off then they can do this next hour

So what your basically saying is that if it hasn't been released as a Retail Miniature then you cannot include it in your Kindreds muster? Is this correct.. No, conversions are fine. It’s to avoid confusion as visually spearmen in your example don’t really look like bowmen, where as armour upgrades...

Re: Crush and Splash Evade Rolls

No you have to avoid crush and splash dice equal to the hits. you roll 3 dice get 1, 2, 3 hits you must evade 1, 2, 3 dice respectively. If you missed all three and the scatter still hits something its 1 dice.

The two crushed warriors must evade 2 dice between them at full M+W, this can only kill those specific models as crush templates can't over spill to models not under the template.
