EDIT: THIS ISSUE HAS BEEN CLEARED UP. THE FOLLOWING POST IS WRONG
from the FAQ
Page 242 – Understrength Units
Change the second paragraph to read:
‘If you are using Power Ratings, you must still pay the Power Rating cost as if you had a minimum-sized unit, even though it contains fewer models. If you are using points, you only pay the points for the models you actually have in an understrength unit (and any wargear they are equipped with). An understrength unit still takes up the appropriate slot in a Detachment.’
so we can get 4 incubi for the cost of 4 and use them as bodyguards, or you could buy 1 scourge with a DL and only pay 37 pts. This could be good on other units too. we can make battalions really easy now.
oh, and could you take a unit, take 0 models, and pay 0 points and thus filling bout a detachment slot, them we could have lists like
Archon-0pts (no model) or 64 pts if its wrong
kabalites: 1 w/Dl- 27 pts
trueborn w/dl-33 pts
with outrider, vanguard and spearhead, this could get very spammy. it also eliminates taxes if my interpretation is correct (you take the slot, but take 0 models and pay 0 points but as it says, it takes a slot.)
it probably should say you must take 1 model, but still. I bet @TeenageAngst
would love to see this.
