You won't see RH style nonsense because a Hobgobbo with a Bow is 50 pts. for the unit, and if you make the proper changes, Sh/LA would be 80 for 20. People only spammed HGs because they were 20 pts for 10 models in RH days. Obviously ridiculous. But minimum size 20 for Sh/LA guys, and paying 5 pts. for a Bow, are not unreasonable. Yes I agree with Andy that they have uses, and most people would take 2-3 units of them, but so what? The army's CORE will still be Chaos Dwarfs, and you won't be winning any games based on your Hobgoblins. Your CDs and CD-cousins like Bulls and the like will be needed to win, particularly vs. the shit out there these days. It's really not that big a deal, no more so than O&G being able to spam units of Snotlings till their hearts are content, or High Elves having the option for up to 4 Eagles for the same 200 pts., or Undead with 40 pt. 18" Dire Wolf fast cav.

I agree. Nobody is going to complain about 4-pt hobgoblins that come only in units of 20+, or 50-pt archer units. Let's not be so worried about these two breaking the list. They don't.

I agree, though it appears Kevin was concerned about this, so that's why I posted.
