Okay so apparently in a 2000 point game you can spend a total of half your points on lords and heroes? Because that's a buddy arguing that to me and either I am mistaken or is this hero hammer?

I am sure this is wrong... Hopefully

You can spend up to 25% of your army on Lords and up to 25% of your army on Heroes.

So 50% on characters overall, but it is split as above (so you can't spend more than 25% in each category).

Great... Looks like this will be a herohammer fest with a certain friend, a great introduction into 8th

What army is he fielding? Because, sincerely, most of them have way better things to be doing than spending half their points on four or five models.

1000 pts on troops is still plenty, and my experience is that him spending the other 1000 pts on heroes/lords will work against him rather than for him.

It would be herohammer if lords and heroes cost way less than they do now. As it is...

After the first few times he loses horribly by putting 50% of his army into charcters, things will change.

Don't worry, unlike in 7th edition 50% is actually a lower amount than you used to be able to spend in some armies. :shifty:

Try to make a character killing army to make him think that spending lots n characters sucks. Cheat if you can to ensure you win this and get the idea of herohammer out of his brain early on.

(this is the only time when cheating is reasonable)

I don't think cheating is ever reasonable. It's a game for goodness' sake!

If he's spending 1000 points on characters his army will be lacking elsewhere that it's important. Exploit that weakness. To be honest though, even Warriors of Chaos should only be spending 600, maybe 650-700 points on characters in 2000 points, and they have some of the more expensive characters out there...

@n00bLord What army do you play?

+1 totally agree.
