Howdy, I’m new to KoW. Been a long time player of WHFB and have been trying to find a replacement. I’ve seen and been reading about KoW and it seems like I can find a home here. However as I’ve tried to dive into the rules, figs, armies, etc. I’m finding it hard to figure out what is what. There seems to be inconsistencies at each turn and I’m not sure where to look for the correct answers. I’m sure it’s a matter that I don’t know where to look so hopefully this forum can provide me some much needed direction.
What are the correct army lists and were are they for the expanded armies? For example I have collected Scaven, Beastmen and Lizardmen. I think that relates to Ratkin, Herd and Salamander? When i downloaded the “Free Rules” Vanguard Abridged War band document I found the new armies above but there are only a handful of units listed in the document for each army. Yet I see lists people have shared in this forum that have a slew of units that do not exist in these free documents. Is there an approved lists out there at that shows all the units for each of these armies and there stats, special notes, special rules, weapon upgrades etc?
I use army builder and have for years. I was excited to see that army builder supports KoW (at least i think it does). In the Army Builder program i started building a Herd list (2250 pts). When i added a unit of Longhorns (Beastigors) i noticed on the warband document that they can have there weapons upgraded to 2H weapons for 2pts/model. The problem is when i add that unit into Army Builder there was no option to upgrade that unit to a 2H Weapon. I thought that might have just been an weird issue with outdated log file in army builder. So i thought i would try that website EasyArmy but the same issue appeared there. So now i’m scratching my head wondering if the army builder/easyarmy are a more up to date than the Free Rules download document is? Maybe I can’t upgrade my Longhorns to 2H Weapons?
Those are just a couple of examples I’m talking about. I can’t tell what is the most current list and if there is an army builder type program that exists that has the most current lists of units and all there special upgrades etc.
creating lists by hand doesn’t appeal to me so I’m hoping KoW has a solution for this.
Any comments on where i should be looking for the most comprehensive up to date info on rules, armies, units etc. would be appreciated.
Sorry for all the spelling/grammar issues. I’m no good at getting all the letters in the right order
