Calcuating Easterling Warrior Bow Limits

Postby BaronDeSade » Sun Jan 20, 2013 12:10 pm

Hello All,

The wording in the Fallen Realms FAQ confuses me and I wished to know if I was interpreting it correctly.

"Easterling Warriors in warbands chosen from the Eastern Kingdoms army list have a bow limit of 1/2 (rounding up) instead of the usual 1/3.)"

First of all, I am going to drop the redundancy, because as far as I know, Easterling Warriors can ONLY be taken in Eastern Kingdoms warbands, so, "in warbands chosen from the Eastern Kingdoms army list" seems to have no meaning. Correct?

Second, shall I interpret this rule to mean that warbands which contain Easterling Warriors are calculated as a separate "army" and that "army" has a bow limit of 1/2 (of Easterling Warriors?) Then, the rest of my Eastern Kingdoms army, which has Khandish Axemen and such, confirms to the 1/3 bow limit?

Third, does this special rule apply only within warbands, or can I have one warband of 12 Easterling Warriors with shields and one of 12 Easterling Warriors with bows and be within the rules?

Fourth, does this special rule become invalid if I add other models with bows to the warband, such as Khandish Warriors with bows or Khadish Horsemen? For example, is a warband with four Easterling Warriors with Shields, four Easterling Warriors with Bows, and Four Khandish Warriors with Bows legal, as long as I have eight other non-bow armed models in my force to compensate for the four Khandish Bowmen?

Those are all of the permutations I can think of. Some clarification with rules support would be appreciated.

Gramercy,

BdS

sadly it's not clear like the rule in the Harad section where you could only have specific models to have this take effect.
