The Sgt from the armoured infantry seem mixed up a bit, the thunder bolt pistol is the same name but different stats to the air cav version.

There is a colour Sgt up grade but no stats for the colour Sgt upgrade

I think the different movement isn't a typo there are different movements in other units too

Thanks Hannibal, this is a great honour for me, that Neil accepts my help, is great :D

And I love to do this.

To be honest I dont know, Neil sends me the PDF and I look at them for typos. Mostly now are just grammar flaws. Except for the Terriers Shield.

So maybe in the future i will ;)

Well some typos on the Prussian ORBAT

 

On Page 4 in the section Command Capability and Model cost Glucklich should be written Glücklich (Happy) its written correctly in further examples.

 

On Page 10 Kettenkare should be written Kettenkarre

 

(I find this name very fun and fitting, basically a Karre is a "simple wheeled transportation device" and Ketten are chains.)

KOB Orbat - LIne Infantry Assault Section (pg 7) - The information for Specialists looks to have one error. The cost for Specialists, based on the other entries, should be +5 points per MODEL not TEAM.

 

However, I am also thinking there is a fundamental error in the definition of the Line Infantry Assault Section - Consider.

A Battle Section can have up to 2 Specialists and up to one Gun Team, A HMG Section can have 2 gun teams but NO Specialists, An Assault Section can have no Gun team but can have only 2 Specialists? I see no benefit in just not buying a gun Team for your Battle Section rather than buying an Assault Section.

 

I am hoping that either a) There is some distinction between the two in the rules that is not in the Orbat, or

                                    B) There is a difference that is missing due to a typo - Perhaps in an Assault Section 4 Linemen can upgrade to Lineman Specialists,

                                         forming a symmetry with the HMG section.

The one of the Hussars is correct.

See the weapon stats on the last page if you have more different stats for 1 weapon

I don't get it.

So you say a regular Sky Hussar Team gets maximum 4 Hussars?!

OK, the last page is the correct one for weapon stats.

It is very ambiguous. The section has the wording from the HMG sections regarding upgrade of gun teams, but in the section contents the guns is listed as 1 (not 1+, or 1-2). Then again, it is the only field gun where you have to upgrade to a gun team (let alone a second gun team), and the soldiers are more expensive than say the FSA gun crew even as a baseline. I'm not sure why PE of all would get a second gun in the section, though. Except for the slightly below average range, and no option for a transport, it is more or less the same as the others.

 

Looking at cost, the second gun gets fairly expensive:

First gun ( 75 +35 +35 +10) == 155 (compared to FSA/KoB 140 pts)

Second gun ( 75 +35 +35 +15) == 160, for a grand total of 315 pts for two.

 

Or, with PM5s interpretation above: 155 + 35 +35 +15 == 240.

Prussian:

I guess it is not intended that the field gun section can brr upgraded with mute field guns? For 15 points!!

The Field Gun  section costs:

 

75 Points for the first gun + 10 points for the  crew upgrade + 2 x 35 points for the minimum 2 crew

Basic cost 155 points

 

Optional

75 Points for the second gun + 15 points for the  crew upgrade +35 points per crew member + 5 points for the NCO

Total possible upgrade costs = 235 points

 

Maximum section cost an impressive 380 points....

FSA:

The section entry for the flying samurai seems to be broken.

The air Cab Sergeant is slower than the rest of the team. This doesn't make any sense.

What seems broken about the Flying Samurais?

 

The movement is correct because of her IR of 4 her movement is lowered for balance. Rocket Corps and Luftlancers also have IR 4 and Mv 9

 

 

The Sgt from the armoured infantry seem mixed up a bit, the thunder bolt pistol is the same name but different stats to the air cav version.

There is a colour Sgt up grade but no stats for the colour Sgt upgrade

I think the different movement isn't a typo there are different movements in other units too

 

The tunderbolt pistol of the Air Cav is probably correct because the tunderbolt pistol of the Armoured Infantry is just a Model 4 Revolver

 

I will send the missing statline issue to Spartan

Optional

75 Points for the second gun + 15 points for the  crew upgrade +35 points per crew member + 5 points for the NCO

Total possible upgrade costs = 235 points

 

 

That means that the "Section size" should list 1-2 PAK-69 Field Gun instead of just 1 (write it up as a Typo?).
