        Hmmm I know youre trying to figure out how GW worked out the costs.
As someone mentioned earlier - maybe they have no formula (and simply rely on
their somewhat dubious playtesting). Most of the values look reasonable -with
the exception of the THawk. If youre coming up with a formula the last thing
you want is for that unit to go down in price.....Maybe transporting units
cost should vary depending upon the number...From memory theres only 2 flyers
with transport - the Vampire and the Thawk. I noticed the Vamp costs a little
more and the THawk a little less than in the rules - maybe theres what youre
missing (overestimated V's transport costs - underestimated for the THawk).
Also if youre more interestd in a fair (rather than accurate wrt current points)
formula , Id definately go with a formula which corresponded with the
exponential increase in effectiveness of armour.
                                                just some ideas
