How are the point costs calculated for these swarms? The codex says "XX points per model" should that actually be "XX per base".
We are trying to play WYSIWYG and this possible incorrect wording is causing a stirr.
To represent true WYSIWYG each base will have 3 ripper/nurgs, but the cost of 1 base would be tripled due to this wording.
Thanks for your help!
Cost of swarms like those is worked out per base.
Treat the base as one model with three wounds, and there you have it.
As Adrian said - one model = one base for calulating points.Originally Posted by WailingDoom
In most cases people use 3 Nurglings or Rippers (or Scarabs) on a base becasue a base has 3 wounds. But you can glue on as many as you want (or only one, if you don't have enough models, but it looks really bad). It doesn't change the rules aspect.
Shut up and play.
Thank you both for your replies. They were both clear and simple and perfectly understandable!
