Balancing custom units

I've been thinking about this for a long time. I have units that I want to make custom to HS, but unfortunately I'm having trouble putting stat points to them.

Can anyone help me get a good rule of thumb on how to measure point cost for move, attack, defense, etc.

love to help you sev, but i suck at this too. I get feedback from the boards for costing.

my rule of thumb is when in doubt, give it tealords cost, no matter what your custom is, it has to be closer in actual value than him.....

You have to judge based on how your custom fares in playtests. It gets a lot easier to put points on them as you test more and make more customs. Besides if you post your customs here there are a lot of people who could help you with the points.

Feedback: We could all use a little more

Heres a fairly good starter... I dont have the full text, as I took a screenie of it back at HQ... Maybe someone else does though

Now this is NOT perfect, but its a good guide, which I often cross reference my customs to.



PS: Reason why I have it as an image is so I can have it open in Photoshop as I make customs

On my command, fix bayonets.

I prefer to compare stats to official figs and then guess from there about the cost of any abilities that are not official. Then playtest. Post it here, we will tell you if you are close or not. Then playtest again.

Kumiko is not impressed with your sculpt, either.

What Chaos Child said. I find an official cards that are the most like what I am doing and compare them. Then I guess on costs based on those cards. I tend to cost high and bring it down...
