Re: How many mesokolossoï in a unit ?

I've only ever run them in 5's which absorb so much that hits them especially in shieldwall. I sometimes feel 3's are a little too small as they are more of an anvil so need the numbers to back that role up.

Re: Joined units and other questions.

Just had a quick look at the rulebook and spotted where the confusion is coming from. The modifiers are to what you’ve rolled not what you need to roll. Hope that has cleared it up :)

Re: Joined units and other questions.

No for what you need to roll it’s supposed to be the authority of the goader minus the the authority of the unit being goaded then any additional modifiers, such as goading weapons in range etc. In this example say you have three goad drunes in range for their whips. It would be 33-33 for the brutes...

Its based on the commanders Authority lowest to highest with skill being the tie breaker followed by a dice off. When positioning the General you place his command and host command simultaneously as they are both His/Her command.

If you have a mixed skill unit, such as a bound unit of Skorpion Minor and Major, which skill do you take the test on?

I have read through the Emerge Action and can't seem to see a qualifier. I assume its based of majority but would want to check.
