Why do Farendil the Elf Ranger and El-Adoran have the same exact stats and abilities, except Farendil has one less life point? Did they fancy El-Adoran a bit too powerful and so they toned Farendil down in the Heroes expansion?

Heh, I never noticed that. I'd equalize them, one way or the other.

All four original heroes have nearly identical counterparts in the Heroes expansion. Which you use pretty much comes down to personal preference.

Heroes is supposd to have 100% duplicates of the main four guys, but Phil was saying that one of them has one fewer LP. This is probably a bug.

Yes, they both have Strength (3), Agility (8), Armour (5) and Luck (7) with 4 arrows, but El-Adoran Sureshot has 11 Life Points while Farendil the Elf Ranger only has 10 Life Points. This makes Farendil slightly disadvantaged. I suppose you could make a minor custom rule to compensate Farendil; perhaps have him roll for shooting skeletons on the Any Other Monster column which gives better odds or let him be able to kill Chaos Warriors with his first arrow?

I would have designed Farendil's character sheet with an extra arrow to compensate.

I wrote to GW about this ages ago (as in, when Heroes had just been released). Farendil should have the extra LP; it's just a proofreading error.
