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

General POTUS

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

Thanks heaps - appreciate the help! (good to see some worked examples)
