This is becoming an argument in our parts. Spear Chukkas. I threw out a list with 6 in them. You can take 1-2 as a special choice, so I can't see how you can't have 6.

3 Special max at, in this case, 1500pts. 1-2 for each special selection. The wording even says you can take 1-2 per special unit choice in the army book. Same goes for Pump Wagons and several other units scattered through other books.

Thoughts?

Page 135 seems clear enough. What is thier reasoning as to why you couldn't field 6 spear chukkas?

Page 135 of the rulebook says everything your group will need to solve the argument.

In short though, 2 for 1 slots are exactly that, upto 2 of whatever it is counting only as a single choice.

That said, 6 at 1500pts is excessive.

6 is never excessive! This is goblin shooting we're talking about. People are taking 50 man units at 1500, now THAT is excessive.

It is so. If I could take units of 5 gobs, you'd wet your pants!
No,really, think about it.

I don't think you thought about it right.
Think again.

You've never played 5th ed, have you?

Ok, think about fanatics.


ok, silly stuff aside, 6 spear chukka's legal, that's right. You got to do it on purpose to fail to understand what "you can take 2 for 1" means...

I believe it's the points limitations on the Special Slots that then falls into the limits per category section.

Spear Chukkas as they fit into the percentage allowance... Up to 840-2999 which is where they hit the army cap until you cross 3k.

Surely you can have 6 spear chuckas in 420 points:

1 Night Goblin Big Boss: 30 pts. (7%)
3 units of 20 Goblins: 180 pts (43%)
6 Spear Chuckas: 210 pts (50%)

Bah, I was thinking 25% cap, not 50%. Duh. Sorry 'bout that.

Shhhh. You were just making space for the three rock lobbas that of course were in the list.
