    HotM Battle Generator
    The Battle Generator on page 21 lists the following for Soviet Infantry
    1) 1-4-4-5 costs 11 points, but there are two versions of 1-4-4-5's. Do both the 1-4-4-5/4 and the 1-4-4-5/5 cost 11 points?
    2) The 1-3-4-4/4 half-squad is listed as costing 22 points. I think this cost is a typo - how much should these units cost?
    3) Are the other Soviet unit costs correct, particularly for the Guard units?

    Thanks!

    If i'm not mistaken there aren't 1-4-4-5/4 in the new printed module so i presume this is unimportant as even if you want the 5/4 they are not present.

    They were printed only in the BoH expansion Not One Step Back and were dropped for unknown reasons in HotM.

    Could be a typo or done on purpose. If they allow a 1-3-4-4/4 to cost half as a full squad then you can simply buy the half ones and have double firepower.
    Example, we buy 3 of each:
    - 1-4-4-5/5 = 33 points - 3 FP
    - 1-3-4-4/4 = 30 points - 5 FP

    Makes no sense and its broken so i think they made a half squad cost double so that you will follow the soviet doctrine of swarms of squads.

    Question number 3 i don't know :(

    Hi Rydo,
    In my version of HotM (2016) there are both 1-4-4-5/5 and 1-4-4-5/4 in the scenarios 'Enter the Guards,' 'Rattenkrieg,' 'State Farm is There,' 'A Bitter Holiday,' and 'Room at the Inn.'

    Maybe, though the Battle Generator points seem to be a point based system on strength of unit. I think the doctrine/OOB limitations seem to be baked into the Max number of a unit you can buy. Would be good to know for sure from LNL though.

    Happy New Year!

    I think it's a bit disappointing that there is - besides Rydo's post - no reply to a customer's question regarding possible typos. Especially in a list of point values for DYO scenarios typos are nasty...
