I've played a couple of games and really enjoyed them. I'm playing around with the points calculator to make a warband, but one part I'm struggling with is the spells. Comparing spells between factions, the balance seems very variable.
For example, at 5+ several factions have 1 auto hit at AP(3) where others get 1 hit at AP(4) Deadly (3) - which seems very powerful in Skirmish.
Similarly at 6+ a lot of factions have a spell giving a hit for every model in a unit, almost always terrible compared to other offensive spells given most units are either 1 or 3 models.
Has anyone else tried making a spell list and struggled? Perhaps I'm missing something?
Looking at it further I think part of my confusion is around the targeting rules, particularly regarding targeting other units within 6". Does the caster decide whether to target a single unit or a group of units?
If a group is targeted with a spell that eg gives regeneration, would this boost multiple units or just one?
