View Full Version : points for fanatics

Quick question, are you awarded full points for any fanatics that die, regardless of how they died?

No. Fanatics themselves are worth zero VPs.

Essentially their value is tied up in their parent unit - kill that and you get the points for the fanatics.

Ah ok so if you kill the parent unit and the fanatic is still alive, you still get victory points for the fanatic then?

26-02-2009, 10:49
That's right.

Ok thank you Atrahasis thats how I thought it was played, but my Orc buddy gave me points for every fanatic that died just in case.

How do you work out half strength for the unit?

eg. 20xnight gobbos + 1 fanatic, is below half strength 10 or 9?

The fanatic is not part of the rank and file. If the unit is 20 strong to start, thats all you figure into the calculations. Fanatics are just a "feature/upgrade" of the unit, almost like equiping a unit with say shields or maybe buying it a magic banner.
