Hello, sorry if this topic has already been discussed.
I noticed almost everyone sets up spearmen as 5x4. Why not 7x3? Is it just personal preference, or would this limit their mobility too much and give them not enough rank bonus?
You know, I already assembled my plastic guys and they look great as 7x3, I wouldn't want to change everything...
Actually I rank mine up 6X4 and 8X3. Both have different functions. Keep in mind though that ranking them 7X3 does get you more attacks but it's not guaranteeing the extra wound to make up for the loss of the rank. Spearmen have a hard time wounding. Personally. don't like to make my infantry units narrower then 6.
I like 6*3 myself. I actually haven't used 7 in a rank before but I'd imagine it would be a bit unweildy. Depends on terrain. Like sylvester said, different sized units are best for different purposes. If you're going against something really weak (a goblin unit or something) then extra attacks will be worth it in combat res, but if you're hitting chaos warriors don't gamble too much on the success of six S3 attacks.
