for 9 points i can get a pistol with skirmish, or for 8 i can get a crossbow.

Both of them have the same stat line and I have 545 to work with. That means 60 pistols or 68 crossbows.

Which is better?

30/30 is absolutely best, if you ask me. Split the points, half in a firebase with long range, half in mobile harassment units. Doesn't this belong in your DoW post?

Oh, by the way, check that one out, I've posted the schematic there.

There are much better odds of someone caring if I post each question in a new thread ;)

Absolutely, and that someone might just be the Warseer inquisition. :)

Actually there are much better odds of someone caring if you take the time tell us basic information such as what army you are using rather than waiting for another poster to identify that you are a DOW player.

Agreed; personally I hate this sort of thread as it clogs up the board - people will help you in one thread as well or better than in 4.

well anyway I agree with sanjuro, split them half, half.

I have to agree- 60 crossbowmen would mean that your battle line would be incredibly non-mobile, while 60 odd duellists would crumple upon being charged. 50/50 spilt would be better.

50/50 all the way.

Why are crossbows so much stronger to charges than duellists?

they both have the same stat line, and neither is getting rank bonus or command...
