I just joined the KoW forum (been a fan since v1, but never got around to signing up since Mantic closed their own fora).
Anyway, I looked around but couldn’t see any sign of an FAQ for Uncharted Empires., so if this has already been covered, I apologize.
My question is on the Ratkin list. The Tangle states that it gains +1 die for a number of different spells for each, “Friendly Core Infantry Regiment, Infantry Horde, Infantry Legion, or unit with the VERMIN keyword within 6 inches”.
But looking through the units themselves, there are NO friendly core infantry regiments, hordes, of Legions with the VERMIN keyword. The only units that have it are Vermintide and the Mutant Rat-fiend.
Does anyone know if that’s a mistake in the list? Seems weird that they would call out core infantry units specially if none of them have the keyword.
This is also potentially an issue with the Mutant Rat Fiend as well since it also makes reference to units with the Vermin keyword.
And one a somewhat related topic, has anyone heard anything that might suggest Brutes would come back to the Ratkin list? They’re still explicitly referenced in the background information and there’s a Brute Leader as a character option. I can accept losing the Blight since they can be proxied easily enough as Shock Troops, but losing Brutes hurts. I suppose the best option is to field them as Ogre allies, but that seems less than optional.
