Kings of War: Single Model Cost

Permanent Linkby DaBoss on Sat Jul 02, 2011 5:59 pm

So having determined that the base cost of a model is our starting point for calculating each unit cost

Then using the following formulas:
Troop (N) Cost = N x SMC
Regiment (N) Cost = N x (SMC - 0.5)
Horde (N) Cost = N x (SMC - 0.75)

Units that start at Troop(5)
- count Half-Regiment(N) as Regiment(N) cost
- count Regiment(N) as Horde(N) cost

We get the following results: Difference in points in RED

Undead
Skeleton SMC=4.5 Troop(10) = 45, Regiment(20) = 80, Horde(40) = 150 ---- All AOK
Revenant SMC=6 Troop(10) = 60, Regiment(20) = 110, Horde(40) = 210 ---- Not so good +5/+10 increase
Zombie SMC=3.33 Troop(15) = 50, Regiment(30) = 85, Horde(60) = 155 ---- Not so good -5/-15 decrease
Ghoul SMC=4.5 Troop(10) = 45, Regiment(20) = 80, Horde(40) = 150 ---- All AOK

Elves
Spearman SMC=6 Troop(10) = 60, Regiment(20) = 110, Horde(40) = 210 ---- OK except that Regiment & Horde get Phalanx for free
Sea Guard SMC=10 Regiment(20) = 200, Horde(40) = 370 ---- Reduced cost of Horde by -10
Bowmen SMC=9 Troop(10) = 90, Regiment(20) = 170, Horde(40) = 330 ---- Not so good +10/+25 increase
Palace Guard SMC=7 Troop(5) = 35, Troop(10) = 65, Regiment(20) = 130 ---- Just the Regiment increased by +10

Have looked through the other 3 lists and find the same small problem; various increases of +5 to +25 points on a few units.
Have compiled a PDF with all details - will post when attaching problem resolved.

Now for Second part of this weeks Blog: Breakdown of SMC points
So if we take for example Elven Spearman & Undead Skeleton - lets see what that SMC is made up of?

Elven Spearman (SMC 6): Sp 6, Me 4+, Ra -, De 4+, At 10, Ne 3, Elite
Undead Skeleton (SMC 4.5): Sp 5, Me 5+, Ra -, De 4+, At 10, Ne 3, Evil Dead, Shambling

Main differences between for the 1.5pts Sp, Me, Elite, Evil Dead and Shambling

So lets take a Base Stat Line of Sp 5, Me 4+, Ra -, De 4+, At 10, Ne 3 and cost that at 4pts

The Elven Spearman has
Better Sp by 1 = +1pt
Race Ability Elite = +1pt
So SMC = 4 + 1 + 1 = 6pts

The Skeleton has
Worse Me by 1 = -1pt
Race Ability Evil Dead = +1pt
Race Ability Shambling = +0.5pt (ability has positives and negatives so felt +1 too expensive)
So SMC = 4 - 1 + 1 + 0.5 = 4.5pts

Will work though the other units and see what other +/- needs to be applied to match SMC (or not)

Till next week....
