Company of Heroes

Fri Feb 03, 2012 2:11 am

This is probably me being picky, but could i give the three hunters (or any "company of heroes" formation) the mithril coat fortune? And what exactly would happen? The strict RAW part of me says you could definatly use it, but i can't determine the effect (if any) it would have. Im thinking these are the only options but if you can think of another please tell.
*The entire company's resistance goes up (this sounds rediculous though but definatly determinable through rules)
*A single chosen hero gains a resistance, becomming useful due to the Indomitable special rule.
*No benefit since they can't be involved in Heroic Duals, and they don't technically have independant hero stats.
?? Im sorry but i enjoy picking holes.
All help required.

I think that you choose one Hero in that company of heros, and only that hero's resilience goes up. Though I'm not entirely sure. Good question.

Well, this is more or less thread necromancy, but I have been sick and not able to respond till now.

The description for the Company of Heroes formations is somewhat misleading as the members aren't really "heroes" in a mechanical sense. They are members of a Legendary Formation. Note, that the type listed for characters like Gandalf and Aragorn is "Hero" but for the Legendary formations is it "Infantry". Also compare to the Nine Abroad formation, which is also a legendary formation, but distinctly has a "Hero" listed in its type, along with 8 Infantry models. For this reason you can't give a Mithril Coat to a member of a legendary formation.
