Hello there,

Reading the Mercenary Warband rules in the main book, page 69 notes that "Your warband may include no more than five marksmen."

Page 71, however, reads that you can take 0-7 Marksmen

Which is correct? I am guessing the latter, since the "Max 5" bit is carried over from the swordsmen.

Looking for more input. I'm going with seven, unless there is some errata that explains otherwise.

Thanks again.

In the living rulebook, it says 7 on both pages.

Normally, when there is a rules discrepancy, I would go with the one that is least best, ie least exploitative though (so 5 in this case). Here the rules are clear though.

Thank you very much for checking that for me.

The Living Rulebook does have a lot of these issues fixed. Not all of them, admittedly.

You can have 7 marksmen, but you can only have 5 in a henchmen group. So that means that you'll have at least 2 groups.

It's still max 5 swordsman though right, or is that in an errata? To be fair, it's only said 5 anywhere I have seen...

Worth a try!
Just lost my leader and a yound blood, so another swordsman would have been handy, as my henchie group has +1 WS and only 4 members due to LGT. I'll cope!
