View Full Version : Does a Skink Priest on a Stegadon cost a Rare Slot ?

I am asking this because the german text ist not clearly defiend. It says that i can put a Priest on a Stegadon for the points shown in the Rare Slots. But it isn't saying that it would cost a Rare Slot. Armybuilder says that it costs a Rare Slot, so i am a little bit confused.
Can someone please post the original English Text to see what is right ?

Please !!!

Thanks in advance...

In the English version, it says a Stegadon purchased from the rare section as normal, as far as I remember. So yes, it does still use a rare slot.

And it fits in with the way you buy chariots for characters to ride in.

Yes it is a rare slot and you loose the 6 skinks in the Howdah too.

Doesn't he just replace one crew member? Isn't that how it works for chariots?

Not always. For the HE i.e. you loose all the crew for the character.
And yes, only the skink hero remains on the Stegadon.

But the Unit Strength becomes [Original Unit Strength] + 1, right? Even if the entire crew is replaced?

Hm not so sure, it states, regardless of the skinks left on it, the stegadon always has a US of 8. But I guess a character always adds 1 to it.

The Stegadon always has US 8.
