Summoning.

set aside xxx points at the start. 

Spend these on units you add during the game via summoning or similar. 

Flesheater courts style reinforce units is free. But can't exceed starting side. 

You don't need to declare your 'summoning pool' SCGT style. 

So the reinforcing is free but the command ability, as example, from the ghoul king on terrorgheist falls under summoning?

I disagree. The book is about playing games. It has a battle in progress in the front. 

Khorgus Kull is the bad guy of the Realmgate wars and tournament gamers are the bad guys of the hobby. 

I really like it.

No more side board then?

are formations pointed depending how good they are?

do battle line units have a game play role above other units or just a core style tax

but admit looking forward to narrative play building an army up over months.

Army builds are similar to SCGT but you have restrictions on unit types. 

At 2000 points. 

1-6 leaders

3+ battleline

max 4 of each artillery and behemoths. 

Some units are only battleline if whole army is in a single faction. 

So, are Morghasts battleline in a Deathlords faction. That would be amazing!

How does the book treat Flesheater Courts "summoning" new units and heroes into battle?

Saw the post, nevermind!

Thanks for this thread Ben

Currently sat with 64 Dryads unassembled, cause I'm unsure whether their minimum size is gonna be 10, 15 or 20. Don't need point costs (although that would be cool), but could you tell us what the minimum size of the Dryads is? 

Is Durthu in the book? Deciding what to build my Treeman kit as!

Hey ben,

A few chaos questions.

Are they split into the four chaos gods + skaven or is it slaves to darkness, bloodbound, rotbringers, daemons etc..

Also interested to know the battleline units for warriors of chaos/daemons.

Cheers

Hi Ben,

How are older versions of warscrolls treated? For example, is it just the latest version of a Warscroll that has points associated with it?

Is allegiance % based (i.e 90% ironjawz, 10 whatever) or is it 100% pure ironjawz in order to have the benefits?

I need to know this too. I want to add some thundertusks to my ironjawz.

Also, good sir, there was a rumor about certain leaders able to make certain leaders battleline units. True or false?

Important question: What are the battleline and potential battleline units for the Tomb Kings. (Most importantly, can Ushabti become battleline?)

The current war scrolls for the Gyros say they can be taken in any number of units.  If you deploy 3 models in a unit, does that take up 3 artillery slots ir would it be just one as they are deployed as a unit?

Are Skullcrushers bloodline in Bloodbound army?

Any idea if we will get points for formations from Realmgate Wars books?
