    New to the game.

    Hello! Im kinda new to Warhammer fantasy. And i got a very noobish question, ill hope you dont mind.

    My question is: How do i see how much a unit is worth in points? Been looking around in the army book and rule book but cant seem to find it.

    Thanks for anwsers.

    I'm not entirely sure I understand what you are asking.

    The number of points a unit is worth is based on how many are spent on it.

    If you have a unit where it's five points a model and you buy ten, that's 50 points. If you then buy a command group that is 25 points the unit is worth 75 points. If you upgrade everyone with a 2pt weapon upgrade it's then 95 points.

    Is that what you're trying to find out?

    Well, kinda. I mean, from warhammer 40k in thier codex after all the stats there is a list, like this one is costing 12 points, this unit. I cant find that in warhammer fantasy books.

    Er...

    It's exactly the same in the armybooks for fantasy.

    After the page that says how to build your army it's got the sections (Lord, Hero, Core, Special and Rare, in that order usually) and after the name of a unit/model it has the points. Exactly the same as 40k.

    I think he might be asking where is a compiled list of points - instead of having to buy every Army Book.

    Really you just have to take your opponents word for it. Some players will fudge, but most won't.

    Yet the 40k rulebook and codices do not have points values listed in the statblocks in the back either, so am unsure on why the comparison was made.

    I don't know bout 40k but I think it is the same - first 3 quarters of book is fluff and background, after that is magic items/units/paraphernalia that costs points in no particular order, then stats reference at teh back. I'm sure if you read the whole book you will find it, otherwise there is no hope.
