Re: Sáthach and Gairlom

I think I'm more confused than ever. So: Putting Sáthach in a unit of trained Gairlom makes them become drilled Gairlom with the associated stat increases. (Or would do if it was actually possible to field her in the army as anything other than an individual). Putting Sáthach in a unit of drilled Ga...

Re: Sáthach and Gairlom

So Sáthach would turn Gairlom into Gairmorlom but you couldn't pay to do that? Interesting. By that logic I assume that paying for Gairmorlom and putting Sáthach into the unit would change them to Gairaurmahr. Not as such - they don't become another unit, they're still Gairlom, just a different Acu...

Re: Rhyfelwr and training level

This is probably one of the oldest questions in miniatures game playing. If you had an unlimited amount of gold/points/whatever to make up your army list then yes, the more expensive option would always be the best one. But you don't. Ultimately it's a decision best viewed from the point of view of ...

Re: Sáthach and Gairlom

Actually, upon further reflection, I think this is all moot anyway. With an authority of 82 (one higher than a Mormaer), Sáthach can only ever be an individual in an Albainn army anyway. A pity, I rather liked the idea of the Skye warrior-guru lending her expertise to a bunch of Pictish highlanders.
