I'm Relatively New to OPR and AoF, But have ran into some Confusion regarding the Balance of "Tough(X)" units in the Dwarf Faction.
First is the Dwarf Lord Mounts. I was playing around with the Calculator and it seems they are 10 points Higher then the Calculator suggests in the Dwarf army Book. Dose anyone Have an explanation as to why this might be?
Second is the "Steam-powered Suit" at 190 points, Compared to the "Elites" at 200. Im really straggling to justify the existence of Steam-powered suits. For a 5.2% point increase Elites receive Over 50% additional potential damage. Otherwise Both units Have identical Quality and Defense stats aswell as the Same "Fearless and Slow" Special Rules. I understand "Tough" Units have a few Potential advantages, Easier positioning, Can take 2 wounds without Losing any Potential damage (Though in this case The Potential damage of Elites is actually Higher Until there is only a Single Elite Left standing). But even so The point Discrepancy between these two Units seems Signifigient. Can Anyone Explain that Discrepancy to me?
I Understand these are REALLY small things, But I'm trying to better understand the Internal Balance of the faction, and the AoF system as a whole. Any Help would be Apricated.
