Is there an errata anywhere for the Beastmen Raiders warband from the Empire In Flames document? As it stands, the equipment list is incomplete; the "Gor equipment table" as used by Centigors is not present (is this a typo for "beastmen equipment list"? you would think if it should exist, the Gors should use it instead of the "Beastmen equipment list"), the "Beastmen equipment list" does not list spears, and the "Ungor equipment list" doesn't list swords. This despite the official warband set including a Gor with a spear and the Ungor arm sprues having swords as options.

Also, what do you suggest counting the pickaxes as? Hammers or battleaxes? And the shaman's staff as a mace, do you think?

I have an errata/faq from many moons ago. Attached it for you. Also added the Mordheimer & Honza FAQ that I believe consolidated a few other Specialist Games Forum FAQs.

Equipment list is not covered but pretty sure Centigors used the "Beastman Equipment List". If you wanted a spear you pretty much had to buy the weapons Training skill. Or house rule it. The rules were written when Ungor models didn't have access to swords or shortbows. We house ruled it when the newer set of models came out.

Picks are designed for piercing armour so we counted them as axes. Staff counts as club unless you house rule it. We made it 10gc club that required both hands and had parry. There are alternative rules for a quarterstaff in Border Town Burning in the Dragon Monks warband.

Never saw swords for Ungor on the metal EiF beastman models. Might have been one of those sprues that destroyed the moulds (Inquisitor, Necro and Mordheim all had stuff that disappeared shortly after release). I was considering the old metals and the beastman mob box with a mix of gor and ungor in my comment.

EDIT: Ah, the pic on CCMWiki does have a sword. Thought it was for a gor. There ya go.
