Good stuff :) Well yes, but remember you don't have to take a unit of infantry as your general. So you could just have a normal character to take on the role of the army's General instead of a unit, which most people would do anyway.

But instead of trying to fight and kill a model as the general, your enemy could be faced with cutting down an entire unit instead to destroy the restless, it would make it interesting I think.

Yeah it would be interesting as it could be very unexpected if someone made a character killer and then they have to kill a full unit instead

Just a quick question but have you hammered out the basic points yet for the restless?

Not quite yet, I'm up to the Bone Dragon and then I just have the war machines to go. I'm hoping to have the first draft done this week.

Well here we go, here's the first version of the Undying Legions of the Restless. Please remember it is incredibly rough, and is only good enough to just game test with, until we have done further work on it.

:o oh by the way, Whites Stars (☆) are going to be a new thing in the game. It means you can only take one white start unit per 4000pts. So in terms of the Restless, they can only have one Spirit Unit or Beast Piece in the game, as they use up a White Star.

I thought the normal stars were one per 4000pts anyway?

Nope, you can have as many black stars as you want, providing its on a different piece each time. So you can have a Grand General worth one black star and another different piece worth a black star, but you couldnt have 2 Grand Generals for instance. So all a black star means is that you can use one gaming piece of its kind during a battle per 4000pts.
