Smaug/Glaurung - points cost of the Fly

Wed Apr 22, 2015 11:10 am

We are planning to play a First Age scenario with our half painted new dragon against High Elves.
Without getting into the interesting debate over the profile of Glaurung (should be even more magnificent than Smaugs, but Smaug is already quite bad..) we are just pondering how much cheaper should Smaug go, if he/she/it couldn't fly?
More than the 50 points of the Fly of the normal dragon surely?

I think it would be fair to drop it by 100 points. "Fly" has different real values to different models, and that sounds like a fair portion of Smaug's total cost to me.

Sounds reasonable. The estimation goes more challenging with a creature and special rules like that, than "shield is one point for a warrior and 5 points to a hero".

Yes, really it's whatever your opponent will agree to. But at least now you can quote an unbiased opinion :D
