On skeletons it shows that the model is 8 points and the spear is 1 point.

On black knights you can "give skeletal steeds barding..... 4pts per model"

On grave guard they are 12 points per model and the "unit may exchange shields for great weapons.....1pt"


So you can get a unit of 20 grave guard for 240 points, than add command to make it 270, and then the "unit may exchange shields for great weapons.....1pt" for a total of 271 :evilgrin:

Good one to pull on people that don't let you cast IoN into combat :cheese:

Priceless! For everything else there's MasterCard.

Here in Spain we are acostume to this kind of GW mistakes (GW really makes awful traductions plenty of great mistakes... plus typo ones it mean horrible books.)

Argh, this is going to turn ugly. I assume an errata will come out that will contradict this, but at the moment this IS correct. Stupid typos.

Anyone trying this would be immediately subject to every insult I possess regarding intelligence and social grace.

It's pretty bleedin' obvious that it's not supposed to work that way, and anyone suggesting otherwise is only doing so to gain a ridiculously huge (and illegal) advantage.

I'd probably present the same treatment to anyone trying to disallow casting IoN into combat.

[Disclaimer: this statement is NOT directed at anyone here, because I assume no one in here would seriously try this]

How do U know it's meant to be able to be cast into combat?

The fact that it tells you what happens when you cast it into combat.

Another example of something like this is the BRB, page 46. One of those free manuouvres is technically illegal.

I think this is a fair exchange for not using IoN in combat, until we get a erreta at least. Stop saying you will smash peoples faces in if they do this, who are you, really. What if this is actually correct and the erreta conferms that it is? lol
