I was wondering if there is a 100 point war gear limit for HQ characters?
I havent been able to find it in the rule book, but i've read it on forums. My army is Dark Eldar. Thanks
In older codices the 100pt restriction still exists, for DE you can find it at the top of the armoury page on pg. 5.
This restriction is not in place in the general rulebook. As Charybdis stated, however, there are some older codices that still have it, such as your own army the Dark Eldar. If the codex has the restriction, it will be printed in the armoury section; this is a rule being phased out, though, so don't be surprised if the Dark Eldar codex is one of the only ones with this restriction!
In this case, can i be picky and say "Arcane Wargear" is different to "wargear"
Because a common DE HQ build i see has Animus of Vitae, Shadowfield, Punisher, Tormenter Helm, Reaver jetbike, Combat Drugs
Which to my count comes to 105 points (ignoring punisher)
The difference between Dark Eldar Wargear and Arcane Wargear is that all the Arcane items are solitary items – that is one of each item per army is the limit.
And the Arcane items were an add on in the second printing of the Codex but they are still classed as Wargear.
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
And of course the Necron Lord has his 100 Pt restriction. But who play them guys anyway.......
