Thegn stats


Recommended Posts

So in the Battle Enemy - Saxons table in the back of the main rulebook, it says that any unit listed as heorthgeneats has a thegn or berserker as a leader. The notes also imply that you can roll a thegn on that very table.

Buggered if I can find stats for a thegn anywhere though. Am I missing something obvious?

Makes sense. Was wondering if there might be stats from an earlier edition that got missed off this table, or some errata somewhere.

Also, I guess no need for a separate thegn entry as you get a free thegn with every heorthgeneats roll.

The opposite, more likely. Thegn and heorthgeneat were introduced in Saxons!, which was kinda 4.5 edition. Before that, you just had Berserker, Saxon chieftain and Saxon raider, I think.

Book of Uther and the GPC Expansion (which is part of BoU as well as a standalone) have more stats for Saxon opponents. I forget if it uses thegn or chieftain... Or might be that it just has some new enemies rather than repeat the already existing ones.

And yes, no need for a unit of chieftains... You know the saying, too many chiefs and not enough braves? 🙂

Going with a Saxon Chieftain from the main book as I don't have Saxons!

While not a *must have* book - may I strongly say that Saxons! is a very very good suppliment to have, and well worth the money to acquire, especially if you go the pdf route.
