Has anyone deconstructed how points values are figured for those that are interested in statting up their own forces for local play or for using existing figures/armies?

Hello and welcome.
There is a formula, but I've yet to crack it!

Bouncing this thread in the hope of getting an answer to one question about points - do they vary per army i.e. does a unit with the same stats always have the same point value or have they been tweaked depending on the other units/magic in the army list?

Just want to know if I mix and match units from different lists how far off the points might be?

The unit points are calculated to a formula, and are based on probabilities and observations from extensive playtesting.

"...does a unit with the same stats always have the same point value..."

Yes.  the intention of the points are to ensure that units and armies are cunstructed in a balanced way for standard 500pt games.  The intention is that any army should be able to face any other army with a decent change of success.  Skill and a little luck should be the determining factors of your games, not an inherently strong unit.

At least, that was the intention.   Wink
