I realize this is pretty dumb, but I can't wrap my head around it. With equipping new henchmen AFTER the campaign has started, do you have to roll for rare equipment?
For example: I have a Marksmen henchmen group armed with handguns. If I wanted to get another member into that same group, would this be the following steps to do so; A. Roll to find how much available XP is available, then if I have enough, I can buy a new member for that group. B. Keep a hero make a rare roll to find a handgun, if successful I can buy a handgun. C. Having getting both, I can then recruit to that henchmen group. If either of those rolls fail, then I can't get a new henchmen into that group.
Granted it still makes sense for certain things like Weeping Blades, or Hochland Long Rifles or the such, but it doesn't seem to make much sense for some of the things like handguns and pistols which are all over the place in WHFB. I'm not sure that I'm getting it right, and just not liking the rules. Right now, our group has been playing that handguns are just like regular items.
