First of all you now need five models in a rank, so there's no reason to have units of 16 or 12. You're going to want units of 10, 15, 9 or fourteen, the latter if you want to put characters in units. I would beef up the warrior squads to 20 or 19 though, they need to absorb damage and take advantage of ranks. Eventually I would get shield bearer for your thanes, and unless I'm mistaken Dragonslayers are lords, you can't have two.

he said he might not use teh heros exactly as they are so he might make it a deifferent slayer type.
the lsit is unbalanced as hell but it should be a good base and you can just get a few more pakcs to balance it out.

dragonslayer is Hero, Demonslayer is lord.

well, i did made those two 12x units up for skull pass, the other of 16 since the box comes with that. i might re-think now, maybe buy a extra box to fill the units out, possibly.

so, no units can have 4 models in a rank anymore? how does that explain skull pass had units made for 4 in a rank?

you can puit 4 units in a rank but they wil not get any rank bonuses in cc.
(read teh rulebook) the current edition of the book says that you get the bonus with 4 models however it will be change to five when teh new rules come out(i believe you will get a copy of the new rules wiht battle fro skulll pass)

yeh i will get the new one in skull pass. well, i believe you. but i think its not good since, many of the boxed sets with 16 models etc are made for 4 models in each rank, i think, with that rules change, its dumb that skull pass comes with 12 warriors, with 4 in each rank!!

The staff working on the sprues and the guy writing the rules worked indepently and without communication I am guessing, and the problem of 4 vs 5 in ranks was not discovered until it was too late to be economical to fix.

Happens in many industries all the time.

yeh, i think ur right

still annoying though. why change that rule at all? they should at least know many boxes released BEFORE the 7th ed was for 4 in each ranks,most boxes are made for 16 models. also, lizardmen saurus wont fit in a movement tray if 5 in width, too whide
