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: Sáthach and Gairlom

Follow up question, Rob - is it possible to do this the other way around - i.e. Sáthach is in the Trained unit, so they become Drilled, then pay the gold for upgrading to Veteran? Or must it happen in the order already described? No, because there is no option to upgrade Gairlom to veteran, only dr...

Re: Frenzy and Diving Questions

Also, diving seems very powerful as you can guarantee back strikes - are we playing this wrong or is it meant to be this strong? That's not quite right - whilst a Dive is a direct Engagement , enemies that may do so (i.e., not in combat) can Turn to Face wherever the Diving unit Lands . Cheers Rob
