I'm looking to start a BC game with 13,000xp characters - roughly equivalent to starting Deathwatch characters. All characters will begin with 30 Corruption Points and 37+1d5 Infamy (this includes the amounts gained from Advanced Archetypes). I'm seeing that this should allow the following options:
Human + Basic Archetype + 7,000 xp
CSM + Basic Archetype + 6,500 xp
Human + Advanced Archtype(4,600 xp) + 2,400 xp
CSM + Advanced Archetype (3,600 xp) + 2,900 xp
Looking over the Advanced Archetypes, I'm questioning whether they are worth the big hit in experience. While they are certainly stronger than the Basic Archetypes, they are also much less optimized. I'm considering giving characters built with Advanced Archetypes by 600 xp - so 4,000 xp for the human and 3,000 xp for the CSM. Does anyone have any experience with integrating such characters together?
