i bought today a 500 points vc armie + armie book the general rule book was out of stock and so on i have a question. I have now 20 skeletons with spears and shields, i have now read that they cost 1 point more than skeletons with small hand weapens what is the difference. And two i have bought the standard that there is an option to add a musican and a standard bearer, a standard bearer is included what pieces are used for the musician in special
Hmm well the rulebook will answer those questions, and we can't really since its pretty well laid out and GW copyright.
The most likely reason that the main book is out of stock is because the new edition is coming out next month, you should wait for that.
In your case, for undead, taking the hand weapons is actually much better than taking the spears. Standard bearers are also extremely useful, so assemble one of them, musicians are of questionable worth to undead due to undead special rules, some like them some don't, I wouldn't bother though.
Welcome to warhammer and Librarium Online.
If you haven't yet bought the rulebook, then I suggest you wait until 7th Edition is released later this year. But when it is, you need to buy it, questions like this are easily answered by reading through the rulebook.Spears do indeed increase the cost of Skeletons (and most infantry) by 1 point. Essentially spears allow infantry to fight in one extra rank than normally allowed. Hand weapons and shields are better for most infantry though as it improves their armour save.Originally Posted by groslmIf you've bought a box of skeleton infantry, there should be pieces for a command unit (Standard, musican and leader) in the box. I think the separate standard you've bought could be the Undead Army Battle Standard.Originally Posted by groslm
