Common/Rare pricing

  • Ghosts – Similar stats and abilities to High elves. Overall priced 5 less than the elves as they both have terror, and a good move rule (pathfinder vs spirit walk) and a similar combat ability (glaives vs Spirit Grasp) but the ghost’s We Stand Alone rule and the their -3 Fight relative to the elves makes them slightly weaker.
  • Ghostly Riders – Similar to ghosts above. (Note this now includes the -5 points/company for cavalry currently being playtested)
  • Spectral Host – Slightly weaker (F2 D4) than ghosts, but (oddly) not We Stand Alone. Their special Sap Strength rule is nice and overall slightly better than Ghosts, and equivalent to High Elves.
  • Carn Dûm Warband – Similar stats to Gundabad Backshields (see below) and comparable special rule, so similar price.
  • Court of Fallen Kings – Similar to Ghosts. Base 40 points. +5 points for +2 Def = 45. Double this as they are Resilience 2 = 90. Then +5 each for special rules: Indomitable, Paralysing touch = 100.
  • Draugdaer – Comparable to Ghostly Riders, and then increased by 50% to reflect the Resilience increase from 2 to 3
  • Shade – This one is problematic. It has no effective offensive capability (try and charge it at some infantry!), and it’s special Fight-debuffing ability is not worth 100 points. Currently priced relative to battering rams.
  • Gundabad Blackshields – As discussed elsewhere Mt Gundabad is an integral part of the realm of Angmar. Pricing currently unchanged, but I feel they should go up in a general repricing of all heavy infantry.

Legendary/Epic pricing
For Angmar the only Legendary formations currently are heroes, and so these and the Epic heroes have remained unchanged, besides the reduction in the price of the Witch King. Burhdûr and Gûlavhar have been increased to Resilience 3 but at the same price to improve their survivability.
