    troop numbers

    How is it that people include say 8 warriors for 1 troop choice WITHOUT a raider when the numbers are to be in between 10 - 20 warriors?

    just wondering

    Could you provide an example (such as a link to a thread with this present)? It may have something to do with how people write their army lists; sometimes it is difficult to tell how many models are in the units because of this, and it may appear that there are only 8 models instead of 10.

    If it looks like...

    dark lance 2
    warriors 8

    Or the funky way army builder does it (it confuses me too and I made the list!)

    Or you could just use a Raider Squad that’s not embarked.

    The vehicle being separated [ I am assuming that this is the meaning of 'without' here] from the troops will give you this effect nicely!

    I think it means

    2 dark lance wielding warriors
    8 standard warriors
    =10

    just a guess.

    can't be a raider squad as it has 2 dl's
    could just be wrong. - always possible.
    however I'd say it is most likely what I listed above

    The original post did not mention Dark Lances, so it ‘could’ have been a Raider Squad but without further input from ironfist26 we will never know.

    We all know that just 8 warriors as a squad in an army list is illegal because it falls the below the allowable minimum number from the Codex so we are all inventing possibilities here to solve the issue here.

    Cheers.

    I would like to point out that 8 men in a raider squad is fine. Just my 2 cents

    Oops:
    whoopsy, I thought PhoenixRising was the original poster and just jumped the gun there. Guess we will have to wait for the OP to come back beforewe actually know the answer.
