Newbie Questions: ToEs and Factions


Recommended Posts

In the models-by-faction lists (ToEs), several models are listed with another model in parentheses.  For example, Glaive (Halberd).  My assumption is the Glaive is just a variant of the Halbed with a different data card.  Is that correct?

Second, aside from faction-specific special abilities, is there any drawback to just throwing together a mercenary force?  My main reason for asking is that while I wanted to go with the Templars as my first force, many of the models are not available.

Finally, while I love the hardback, I like to read rules on my tablet.  Is there a PDF of the core rules available?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Correct on the variants. The Glaive is a Halberd variant.

No there is no drawback for just playing a merc force. We have some things coming down the pipe to make playing a faction force more attractive so stay tuned.

There is not a pdf right now. We are getting ready to release a rules update that will include the core rules and any changes/errata that will be in pdf form (and later reprinted in the Rules of Engagement campaign guide next year). The pdf will be available this upcoming January.

Sorry to necro this - but is there a pdf available now for the core rulebook?
I like physical books, but being able to have the rules available digitally would be amazing.

While we have no plans in releasing the complete book as a pdf. The core rules will be available in July as a free pdf.
