I just go through the Merchant caravan and the Black Dwarf warband and both have a vehicle in their warband hire list.

I noticed that there is no warband rating for those vehicles... Do they have one ?

In the case of the Stage coach the two horses both count as 5 so it would add a mere 10 points... In the case of the Engine of chaos the demon should be a large creature so I'd say 20 ...

But indeed... As they are not ''warriors'' and do not have any ''combat potential'' should they have a rating ? I really don't know.

Any opinions ?

No they do not. The authors of the rules apparently thought that they did not require one. I agree.

I have read of people counting them as +40 (for 2 mounts). Ridiculous. Regular wagons are potential death traps and a huge income sink. Penalty enough I say.

By the original (optional) rules for mounts horses count +3. Warhorses count +5.

Thx alot Von Kurst. Its so true that they are nothing more than a big sink to GC.

Indeed, I think a good compromise would be to add the value of the two horses (so 6) for the Stage coach. and add 12 for the engine of chaos ( for the demon that clearly worths twice the horses).

However, On most engine of chaos I saw here, the demon was ''hidden''. Personnaly, my plans for my future engine looks more like a techno-geared-coach pulled by a huge flaming ''Taurus'' demon. Still, it's a personal taste I guess.
