SWORDPOINT Errata & Living FAQ
Swordpoint Errata (Army List Errata are in their own by book sections)
Inevitably some errors remain in the published work however hard we try. Sorry!
Page 21: Change Formation (5.2.2) Add at end: “When changing formation a unit must expand or contract symmetrically around its centre point or as closely to this as possible in its circumstances”.
Page 42: Combined Formations: Third paragraph: Replace “All bases containing archers in a Combined Formation throw 1D6 when shooting-the usual second row bonus does not apply” with “All bases containing archers in a Combined Formation throw 1D6 per two bases (rounded up) when shooting”.
Page 52: Sassanid Army list: All commanders ride horses. Army Composition should say “Infantry: Up to 50%. Cavalry: at least 50%”. Light cavalry entry: Should refer to “Horse Archers” as a single entry.
Page 58: Later Saxon Kingdoms Army list: Special Troops entry: Skirmishers cost 4 points each
Sassanid Army page 52: Add after Light Cavalry entry: “In an early army, there must be at least one light cavalry figure for each heavy cavalry figure in the army. In a late army there must be at least one light cavalry figure for each heavy cavalry figure in the army, unless All Azatan noble cavalry have bows".
Medieval Russian Army Page 61: Wagon Tabor entry should read:
The army may include a Wagon Tabor. In a Post-Mongol Conquest army, a Wagon Defender may exchange his bow for a crossbow (+2). Points for the Tabor come from the Infantry section.
There may be one base of defenders per wagon in the Tabor. Defenders have javelins and shield. Inferior Fighters. May exchange javelins for bow (free). They form one single unit.
New games naturally generate a number of queries and so we intend to build a series of FAQ responses which you will find here.
NB We have taken all the current FAQ's and made them available for in one PDF which you can download using the link below. New ones will rest on this page for a which before being amalgamated into the download!
