How low can you go?

How low can you go?

Postby Dave » Fri Jul 30, 2021 2:16 pm

Speaking to Gary last week about Warhammer Fantasy and it got me all nostalgic (for a game I probably only played about 5 times over several editions!)

I’ve been rooting around in the attic and dug out my fantasy stuff with a view to convincing someone to have some games of WHFB.

My question though is about KoW, is it playable at say 750ish points or is that too low? I have enough High Elves to just about do that (using 2nd edition KoW points values).

Cheers

Can't remember exactly but I think me and Ray were playing between 500-1000 when we were re learning and they were ok.
What would your line up be as I've a few High Elves that may be useable to point up.

The rulebook advises allowing any number of troops below 1000 so you can play with a lot of small units rather than a tiny unit count. I don't see why it wouldn't be playable at 750. Alternatively just model some unit fillers to bulk things out to regiment size and can probably make 1000 easily enough.

1x Spearmen Regiment (only 15 models)
2x Place Guard Troop
1x Cavalry Troop
1x Archer Troop
1x Mage

I’ve also got a hero on a Griffon so maybe 1,000 points.

My plan is to make a 500 point WHFB list and build off of that.
