They get experience for surviving but do all the henchmen in a group have to survive or must there just be a token representative on the board at the end of the game? So my three mountain guards.....

One is taken out of action, does the group get the experience point as two survived or does it not because one went down?

Thanks for any answers

Henchmen (and Heroes) always get the +1 XP for surviving. Note that you get the experience point even if you were taken out of action. "Surviving" refers to the Serious Injury roll. So Hero that doesn't roll a 11-15 and a Henchman group that isn't eradicated (=all members roll 1-2) gets the XP point. In other words, as long as the model is still on the roster (and if it did participate in the game) then it gets the XP.

So in your example.. it doesn't matter if one member of the henchman group is on the table at the end of game or if all were taken out. If at least one of them survives (by rolling 3+ for injuries = the henchman group still exists) then the group gets the XP point.

I guess the wording of "surviving" is not perfect because people often get confused by it. Basically this is the one free constant XP point that every model always gets.

He probably has.. At least one for each battle he participated in. Smile

Yeah - two battles now but he was taken out in one. We were playing it as only getting experience if you were upright and breathing at the end of the fight.

Sorry to raise a dead thread, but I had a question:

Do henchmen groups get additional xp for kills that they make? We normally do not allow this, are we playing it correctly?

Experience gained from a scenario is always mentioned and can be different from scenario to scenario. Generally though henchmen do not get Experience from taking an enemy out of action. As an example, here is the Experience granted from the Skirmish scenario in the core rulebook.

Quote :
experience
+1 Survives. If a Hero or a Henchman group survives the battle they gain +1 Experience.
+1 Winning Leader. The leader of the winning warband gains +1 extra Experience.
+1 Per Enemy Out of Action. Any Hero earns +1 Experience for each enemy model he puts out of action.

Thanks. I saw something on another forum that made me wonder. It must be a house rule. It was something about henchmen gaining xp in the first battle.

I think I know which place you are talking about and yes, it was listed as a house rule for that campaign.
