*** Erkenbrand’s Riders are a standard Éored statline with +1 strength. So are priced as a standard Éored + 5/co.

Legendary Formation Pricing
This is discussed in greater detail in the Elves’ pricing. But to summarise the new costs are:

  • 20 points per Might point of any Heroes.
  • 10 points for any ‘special’ rules beyond those available in the standard troops of the same type.
  • 10 and 20 points for a Musician or Banner respectively, if included in the formation.
  • 60 points if a hero is a spellcaster, and 30 points for each extra level of Mastery.
  • 10% taken off the total of the above to make sure the Legendary formation is a little more ‘desirable’ and ‘efficient’.

For the Rohirrim this has meant a significant price reduction for all the legendary formations. In addition some of the company prices have changed, the cavalry benefits from the -5/co. However Erkenbrand’s Riders seemed very expensive for a standard éored with +1 Strength, and so were repriced accordingly. The Royal standard’s Might restoration and Theodred’s similar one I priced at 20, not the standard 10 used for legendary formation special rules, as it is likely to replenish at least 1 Might point.
