Cost for veteran troops

Post by Oldentired on Sun Aug 24, 2014 8:11 am

Evening,

Have played a few games now, and +3 pt per fig for veteran seems ridiculously cheap. Once they're Veteran they're extremely hard to kill.

Why the low cost?

3 pts is for all figures of the unit as you cannot upgrade only some of the figures.
Now, all costs are still under test, so any feedback is welcome.

welcome back from holiday!

we're finding that Veteran is a very good characteristic because of the Firing Damage re-roll. so good that you're foolish not to take it at the price!

meanwhile Marksman, which is also good - but which has significant downsides in the loss of group moves like fire/reload - is more expensive.

basically if we can take Veteran, we do.

note, that if Veteran is shooting, no bonus. So if you ahve all veterans, you have no advantage

absolutely. the primary advantage is on defence. because shooting is slow, the value of the reroll to prevent a death is very high.

we've tested this a little more since august, and yes, veteran is a very powerful ability.

the re-roll effectively means that you are crazy to not upgrade every figure you can to veteran, because they last so much longer, and if firing from cover are almost unstoppable.

except in melee!

seems the thing to do with vets is suppress them with lots of cheap shooters, then charge them with other angry vets.
