So yeah. Played reinforcements yesterday and my experience was EXACTLY what was described on the previous page. Saurian leader dying all the time, had to kill at least 40 enemies using debug, finished on the last turn. Not helped by the fact that none of the units I'm given are in any way suitable for fighting undead.

For the record, you can use a crowd of druids against the skeletons and hope that the intelligent/dexterous ones can be promoted quickly to Enchantresses (and then it's wo-wee!) but it requires a lot of luck (and savescumming) to make it work if you want to defeat the undead leader within the time limit.

You do have some faerie fire from the start, though it's on leader units so you can't be reckless with it. (The queen also gets it in the upcoming version.) On easy mode you also get a druid from the start and possibly an enchantress (can't quite recall) in the upcoming version. The entire scenario is getting some rebalancing as well, and I'm testing it on medium (I think previously I tested on easy), so hopefully it'll be much more beatable.

Only the one leader has faerie fire and he starts very far from the action. The one chocobone will just nail him any time but at full daylight.

Is the new version going to be in BfW 1.12 or will I simply have to *sighs theatrically* make an effort and download and install 1.4?

The new version will not be in 1.12, but at the rate I'm working it might not even be on 1.14 before the end of the month, so there's no hurry. :)

So I can continue to playtest/be addicted to Ani's Legacy and tell myself that I'm really putting together ideas for my own campaign. Nice!

I'll also post in this thread whenever I actually upload it, with a complete changelog.

Yeah, only one leader has fairy fire, , and since i need to kill 6-10 enemies a turn to even stand a chance, it's not helping much.
