How many mesokolossoï in a unit ?

Postby antoine » Tue Dec 11, 2018 11:29 pm

Hi,
Some of my Atalantes being now painted, they soon will have to fight. It's going to be an encounter, don't know my opponent's army (he's got Gorgon, Cursed Herd and Brythoniaid)
My force is based on mesokolossoï. With the tekhnomantis now influencing them, basicly I'm hesitating between :
5 with a stratekolossos
2x3 with Hektor
I tend to prefer having more units, but are they effective at their effective size, so to speak ? Or is it more safe to field them at full power ?

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.

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 archaïc Mesokolossos (bound)
