Points values for troops in MM?

Postby Macsen Wledig » Wed Mar 11, 2020 8:02 pm

I am a bit confused (not difficult). Just received the MM ruleset today and looks really nice, well laid out and relatively simple so big tick for that. However, I am confused and disappointed that there is no explanation of the points system for the various troop types used. I now know that army lists in SP can be used in MM but is there an explanation of the troop points costs in each army publication or is that only present in the master set of rules SP? I really don't want to have to buy another book just to explain the points costs for the troops in MM as I would have assumed as a standalone ruleset it would contain them..?

The various books of army lists are intended for use with both Swordpoint and Milites Mundi; each period book has a "how to use the lists" section and page 6 of MM covers the only divergence from that. As the rulesets cover a very broad period it would not be practical to put the army lists in the rulebooks.

Thanks for the reply Martin. I still maintain that a page in the rules just to explain the unit costs would suffice for me. I don't thinks it too much to ask. As a standalone book of rules, I would expect this simple listing of the points structure to be included. All other rulesets I have come across have this in them. Obviously you want to sell books (ie army lists) and I get that but I don't think its too much to ask for an explanation of the points system in MM
