Darius the not so great.

Postby dave.p » Sat May 04, 2019 6:41 pm

Can his +3 cohesion bonus be used to raise a units leadership value above 9 ?

O.k, so sooner or later he will end-up in combat.
What is his defence value? Chariot plus light armour = 4 perhaps ?
Is he a superior fighter ?
Is he a formed unit ? Can he be charged at by skirmishers ? Can he counter-charge ?
Does he have open-order movement restrictions or is he generally unrestricted except that he cannot enter certain terrain features?

The rules prevent any C value being boosted above 9.
Darius has a defence value of 3 as stated in the army list.
He is not a Superior Fighter as it does not say he is.
He is a Commander, not a unit, so is not formed or unformed. As a special rule he can be attacked, by any troops, and he does not charge or counter-charge.
Darius moves as a heavy chariot.

Thanks Martin. I've been away so have only now seen your response.
Somehow I overlooked his defence value.
Just to clarify, "Darius moves as a heavy chariot." Do you mean that he can move up to 12" in any direction (as a commander) but with chariot terrain restrictions, or that he has all of the movement restrictions of a chariot unit including movement arcs and losing speed for an about-face ?

12" move with terrain restrictions only.
