Hi Robert!

Thank you so much for the bug updates! If you're ever in CA or Aliso Viejo let me know I'd buy you a beer :-)

Anyway I noticed that I don't think Archaon (WoC) is in fully. I believe you have 4 choices with him (depending on which mark he gets but they don't call them marks as often the bonus is much different than what a mark gives you).

Anyway just an FYI.

I'm not sure what you're referring to-- are you looking at the 6.0 armybook, rather than the new one? There are no Mark choices for him to take.

Archaon seems to be in there for the most part, though I did notice a few omissions:

* At the top summary, it says "Causes Terror" . This should be solely under the Crown of Domination, since it's part of the Crown's perks.

* In the summary, it lists "Immune to Psychology"; this is incorrect. He is immune to Fear, Terror & Panic (which is already written in AB). Under Sword of Chaos, however, it states that there must be a unit of Chaos Knights (this is already done correctly in AB as well), and only if he leads this unit, then the unit itself becomes Immune to Psychology-- but note that he doesn't have to lead it. If he doesn't, then it would seem that he gets the benefits of ignoring the Immune to Psychology penalties... namely, he can choose to flee from a charge (and doesn't have to stand his ground as required by the rules). Maybe on another line write:
"Swords of Chaos: If leading his unit of knights, the unit gains Immune to Psychology."

* I'd rewrite the description for The Armor of Morkar to read: "Attacks need a minimum of 3+ to wound". Current wording seems a bit confusing.

* Steed of Apocalypse (Dorghar) needs the notation: "When not in a unit, treats difficult ground as open ground."

* Slayer of Kings should state at the beginning that it ignores armor saves.

Finally, Archaon has an armor save of 1+, not 0+ (his mount is already factored in).

If you'd find it useful, Robert, I'd be glad to go through the other heroes. My gaming group doesn't play with any named characters, so I never bothered to de-bug them.

Forsaken need "Frenzy" added.

Trolls:
* Mutant Regeneration should read: Regenerates, If 2+ wounds regenerated per phase, unit rolls on Eye of the Gods table. Does not extend to characters joining unit.
* Troll Vomit should read: "Each troll in base contact with enemy inflicts one magical S5 hit, no armor save."

Check again. They're already in his description. Add him to an army list and do a print preview, and you'll see he has all those perks already allocated:

- +1 to casting, sorc. level +2 (2 power dice, 1 dispell die)
- Immune to poisoned attacks, incoming attacks at -1 to hit
- Immune to Fear, Terror, Panic, troops use his leadership within 18"
- Magic Resistance (2)

Not to nitpick your great work, but Dark Elves still can't select a DoW Giant.

Are Dark Elves still alowed to take DoW? In the new Lizardmen book DoW are not mentioned. (they were still mentioned in the old army book).
