Supply Points Costs

Supply Points Costs

Postby POTUS » Mon Aug 17, 2009 2:31 pm

Hi Guys,

Interested in your thoughts on supply costs for
(a) Fixed Depots (as per stats line in rule book) - no costs in rule book
(b) Mobile Supply depots eg: horse drawn supply wagons - no cost in rule book
(c) Ficticious armoured supply schleppers (some thing like MkI's or Brunhilde Troop contraptions) that carry ammo rather than troops

Much thanks

You mean points value?
I wouldn't give them a points value. Just take them for free.
Not that I play points games, anyway...

Sage advice!

*Personally I like the idea of free supply - my martian opponent may differ*

As much as I would love to say "take them for free"

I think that you will find the Construction Points Rules on Page 30 / 31 which will help you out to cost Supply

Ok here are the worked calcs for the supply examples from the rule book

Supply Wagon Train stats are as per book – Def 1, Shoot 0, Melee 0, AA 0, Speed 2, CMD 3

First Point of Defence is Free & no cost for zero Shoot, Melee, AA. Speed 2 is free (all Speed under 3 is free). Command 3 costs 4PV. Add the Supply Unit modification (fixed or mobile) 10PV. Subtract 5PV as unit is Cav/Inf Unit & the Cost for the Supply Wagon Train is (4+10-5) = 9PV

Fixed Supply Depot as per rule book – Def 2, Shoot 1, Melee 1, AA 2, Speed 0, CMD 3

First Point of Defence is Free, subsequent points 3pts per point of Def (3PV), 1pt shooting costs 5PV, 1pts Melee costs 1PV, 1pts AA costs 2PV, Speed 0 is free and Command 3 costs 4PV. Add Supply Unit Modification of 10PV. Subtract 5PV as unit is Cav/Inf Unit and the cost of a fixed supply depot is (3+5+1+2+4+10-5)=20PV
