Blog Subject: | Kings of War: Single Model Cost |

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 UndeadSkeleton 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 ElvesSpearman 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.... |
