Well, in the second scenario of the Unstoppable Legion, where you have to run from the dark riders, you captured the feel of Frodo running from ringwraiths excellently. All the time, I was waiting for the dark riders to start keening and screeching :D

Ever since they got first strike, they do a great job.

Why does not chaos get a level 1 version of those dark horsemen we can see for example in the Unstoppable Legion campaign by Chris NS?

Actually, the HeadHunters have the resistances of an elusive-foot, but a normal footman's defenses. And cost a whopping 18 gold. They seem rather sub-par to me.

Methinks there should be an arcane or fire option for the invoker, or an impact or pierce melee unit (mutations just don't last).

How would they get along with the lumberjacks? O.o
Perhaps if you have a Tree and recruit a lumberjack, all of your trees go AWOL?

How to play Chaos?

Being a rather chaotic person myself, I like the Chaos faction from Extended Era - though I don't seem to be playing them too well.

So far, I am a little dismayed by their lack of a) a scout unit b) a decent swimmer unit c) cavalry...

Any hints, or obvious things that are easy to overlook?

Hm. I had to imagine elvish shydes wearing fur hats. And having names like Natasha or Svetlana.

Hm. The montie could have a close-combat handcuff attack that slows. And a dreadful parking-ticket attack: 16-1 impact.

Of course, the mountie has to be the scout!

An idea that was concieved half-awake

Sure, 20% Arcane resist is a little too low for the Silver Mage. My greatest problem with him is the rather feeble attack - 9-4 will not make my day. So many other combat-oriented level 3's pack more punch.

An assassin squad of silver mages can hurt real bad though.

Due to Illuminate, a Mage of Light can give the equivalent of "leadership" even to a lvl 3 lawful unit. Actually, in HttT, I would get my healing almost exclusively from White Mages, as any Shaman that levels would have to become a Sorceress. In TRoW, you don't have any other option, do you? EI is s...

Actually, I find it a pity that you cannot recruit cavalrymen in HttT and TRoW. Likewise, what I miss in HttT is the humble spearman. Or any kind of spear-guy.

I ended up being a Dark Adept. Who would have thought -that- ?
