View Full Version : Hero percentages

* Note I don't have a rulebook yet, so I'm just going off of what I've read elsewhere.

With the way percentages are set up in 8th, if I don't want to take a lord does that mean I can only spend 25% of my points of hero characters? Or is it 50% on characters of which no more than 25% can be on lords?

It's 25% on Lords and 25% on Heroes ... so if you don't want Lords, you're limited to 25% of your total for your Heroes.

I think the reason for not allowing 50% heroes if you take no lords is to keep the total number of characters down.

50% to character would cause all sorts of madness... skink chiefs with additional HW? 4 S4 attacks a pop, cost what, 55 points? Or, god forbid, goblin bosses at thirty-something a pop?

39 with great weapon and nothing.

That depends on the size of the game, of course. :)
