Welcome to Librarium Online!
Okay, this has come up a time or two, so now I'm looking for anybody to answer me this question:
Do you find anything about the Eternal Kindred to have any value? We've basically got a cheap kindred that lets you give your character another attack and a 5+ armor save. Doesn't seem horribly useful.
My best guess is that the kindred was intended to give WE players a way to get a cheap hero to put in Eternal Guard units to get the Stubborn rule. I'm reaching.
Anybody else have any ideas for this seemingly-poor Kindred?
It is completely awful.
Even the fluff doesn't make any sense.
Eternal kindred are supposed to protect the highborn, not be a highborn.
At a stretch you could say that an eternal highborn is one that became a champion for his lord until he became a lord in his own right.
As for the usefulness of the kindred? I really can't see the benfit. It provides nothing that simple wargear can't.
Yeah, I have to agree. I was kind of hoping someone had some ideas, but there just doesn't seem to be much merit to it.
Which begs the question, why is it there? Does anybody else think that, in earlier drafts of the book, taking the Eternal Kindred allowed some added benefit? Perhaps the ability for the EG unit to use the character's LD and be stubborn?
it is a bizzare one,
gaining 5+ save and additional attack for 5 points
or you can just take on a noble L.Armour, Shield, XHW, for 8points and the ability to take Magic Weapon or Armour....
maybe it was going to allow the noble/lord to be stubborn?
Well it gives you a 5+ save, so.
Eternal Kin + Enchanted Sheild + HW = 2+ save?
Of course, I'm probably missing something obvious, but it is almost 4 a.m. :w00t:

You cannot combine it with other equipment.Eternal Kin + Enchanted Sheild + HW = 2+ save?
Which makes them supremely useless.
Not having an army book with me really messed that up.
But, no I guess there is absolutely NO uses for that kin IMO
