at 2000pts you have four hero slots, one of which may be a lord.
so you can have Durthu and one hero.

you have 4 heros choices and 1 commander choice witha maximun of 4 characters
so I am using 3 characters using all the options of heroes and coomanders

Consider Durthu as also taking one character slot for each lord/hero slot he takes.

Unfortunately the wordings used for these sorts of characters could be more specific about that.

The options are actually 4 character slots for a 2K army. You may have up to 1 Lord and 3 heroes OR up to 4 Heroes.

If a Special Character uses 1 Lord and 2 Hero slots it only leaves 1 for a hero

Very simple concept, confuses thousands though: a A Hero Slot is also a Character Slot.

But what about a lord?
Is that a character slot?

(I bet somebody is thinking that upon reading your reply EvC)

No its because people cant read :rolleyes: the very first column states max characters 2 (say for 2k), i think this is a sign of GW aiming the game at younger people :wtf:

It says for 2000 points: 4 characters total, of which up to 1 may be a lord-level and up to 4 may be a hero-level character. Both lords and heroes are considered characters. The way they have written the rule and intend it to be, is giving you the possibility of not including a lord, but take 4 hero-level characters, limiting the amount of characters to 4.

So, never more then 4 characters (apart from maybe DOW characters which sometimes only use a rare-slot).
