Can die 5 times and come back.
In this combination the sword is useless. (Or does your unit looses the axe when dieing?)
So, switch it to:

MINI AXE:100-3 blade
SWORD 90-4 blade

(or the other way around).
Then there will be cases when using axe is better, and there will be cases where the sword is better (more cases, I think, assuming usally normal enemies with less then 90 HP).

And I think your unit is at least level 5 or 6.

I should definitely get five units, one of which is chosen randomly, as well as an unknown item hidden in a treasure chest and a giant fire that eats up my enemies' villages. Pwn'd. :roll:

Turin, how come your still using the old Tribune and Grand Marshal? And what about Alfhelm? Shouldn't he be on there too?

About the actual idea: The reason it wont work is because everybody is choosing ridiculously high damage, hp, defense and resistance. If everybody would be a balanced level one unit, maybe with advancements, this idea would actually have some potential.

Yeah, I needs to update it. I'll go do that now, not like I have anything better to do *cough*homework*cough*... :P

[edit]
OK, the deed is done, I had to put it on a grassy background and pngcrush it to get it under 10KB, but the deed is done...

My avatar was a unit originally designed as a healer/damage sink. I still have the cfg file in my archives, but it is in 1.0 format...

Besides, 5-3 is pitifully low for a L2 unit.

Ok .. so my unit has only 13HP and about 30% defense, depending on terrain +-10%
and average resistance

special abilitiy: error in math module
any damage dealt to it is first used to divide one and the outcame is the damage
:P the more damage you can do ... the less it will do

it still survives 13 hits and because of its second ability:
striking back the enemy with his maxdmg^2 everytime he hits
it may has some chance to win a battle or 2

ps: show me the part of wesnoths code that guarantees you the 'at least 1' damage

I'm no coder, so I don't know where it is, but go try it yourself. Create a unit with a 0-1 attack and you'll see that whoever he goes against he will do 1-1 damage against.
