Atalantes: Athority test for the Force action

I planned something for next game and need to be sure:
If a strategos joins a unit of messokolossos,
then a Tekhnomantis Force this joined unit to Charge, for example,
the Force test is passed on the strategos authority, right? (even if he is involuntarily left in the proecess)

Re: Kindred Musters Update - 1st October 2018

Hi,
the Byzantii Muster states that Skorpio is on 60mm bases. I thought it was supposed to be smaller than an Onager, and the same size than the megakontabolos, 40mm. Is that a mistake?

You're probably right, and they also have to suffer damage from the tekhnomantis Force action, 2D10 is a graze for a unit of 5, but might easily be too much on a unit of 3. So I'll go for the following list : General (alone): tekhnomantis Mesokolossos command : Stratekolossos 4 Mesokolossos 1 archaï...
