You bad, bad children!
Anyway, geniality being my middle name (I think that's what people call me?), here is the full SP once again:
Recommended points values
It is possible to play The Men Who Would Be Kings with whatever models you have to hand, but I suggest using the points costs as shown below.
The standard points value for a Field Force is 24 points. Sample 24 point Field Forces are shown towards the end of the book, but the basic units cost:
- Regular units: 6 points per unit.
- Irregular units: 4 points per unit.
- Tribal units: 3 points per unit.
- Crewed weapons: 4 or 6 points per weapon.
I'm sure most colonial players will be able to work out the likely differences between Regular, Irregular, and Tribal, but bear in mind I suggest fielding tribesmen who are good shots (e.g., Pathans) as Irregular infantry rather than Tribal, and reserving the latter for proper spear/sword/shield types.
Forces can be adjusted by upgrading or downgrading some unit abilities as explained in the full rules; however, you cannot keep downgrading a unit to cost less than 2 points, or upgrading above 9 points.
Recommended unit sizes
My suggested unit sizes are as follows, although you can adjust them as you wish (which will impact on points values):
- Regular and Irregular infantry: 12 models per unit.
- Regular and Irregular cavalry: 8 models per unit.
- Tribal infantry: 16 models per unit.
- Tribal cavalry: 10 models per unit.
- Crewed weapons: 1 gun plus 4 crew models.
