I'm sure this has been asked before but I can't seem to find it with the search function: what's the unit strength of the screaming bell and the plague furnace? Is it 15 like the number of models that it displaces or is it only 6 like the number of wounds on its profile? Is it 7 since it could be considered a ridden monster, or might it perhaps be 5 since it is a chariot with a character atop it?

I'm so confused.

As the rules stand it is a monster with US6.

Wouldn't it in that case have US7 since it is ridden?

The bell/furnace itself is 6, the grey seer/priest riding it gives +1.

Right. That was what I kinda hoped it wouldn't be. It just seems so small for such a huge model.

As quoted in the Skaven army book:

US is equal to the number of models it displaced..... so guess...around 15.

Not 6, not 7...nothing else.

Termik - that is only when you work out the rank bonus, where it counts as the number of models it displaces.

Hey all, you can refer to my thorough break-down of this rules inconsistency on this thread:

Wrong termik, that "quote" is nowhere in the skaven book. Type it exactly as it is in the skaven book. (That is what a quote is after all).

quote:
"The different sized base of the Screaming Bell means that some extrapolation must be done to work out the rank bonus. Count the model as the same number of Skaven that would normally occupy that space (usually 15)"

Nowhere is there any mention of unit strength. US is completely unrelated to the number of models.
