Erainn Starter Host

Postby Simock03 » Fri Apr 13, 2018 6:57 am

Hello,
Being looking at collecting some Erainn and i really like the beast side of this Army. The monstrous beast starter host:
http://mierce-miniatures.com/index.php? ... ss_310_000
is not a legal list as the Ancient Fen Beast has Authority 68, the Fen Beasts 26 and i think based on base size a Yew beast is 46. Which means the Ancient Fen Beast would need to have at least Authority 72. Is this a mistake or is it a bad "Starter Army"?

Its a tricky one, do you make Starter host's legal forces, or do you just put cool models in so that people can get playing with what they've got.
GW Starter boxes, for example, have often mixed the armies up to allow the different aspects of the rules to be played.
'Starter Box' doesn't have to mean 'Game Legal once you play bigger games'.
Maybe a caveat on the box/website would be good? Though perhaps it might make people more hesitant if they know that they need to buy more before they even pick this up? (and yes, I know that when they like it, they'll want more!)

I've fixed it, the hosts should definitely be legal. The Yew Beast is now Authority 41. If you spot any more, let me know.

Cheers

Just looking back over it, have you updated the PDF or is it an errata as the download one still has it at 46.

The pdf will likely have been updated, but the latest version not released for public viewing yet.
The muster files are usually updated and released after the latest Kickstarter or other major event, such as the recent change to muster rules. It is possible, and I seem to recall it being mentioned, that Rob wanted to update on a more regular basis, though I could be way off with that.

Érainn haven't been updated yet - got as far as Byzantii (although I have done Vras too).

I am intending to update musters every quarter, although I haven't really stuck to that this year... yet!

Cheers
