So, noticing their reduction in rear support, how have they performed in your experiences? Always vulnerable to flank, now with less hitting power. Any issues?

They're only 3pt stands. Sure, they're not quite as strong as they were in legacy systems, but the (implied) point value in legacy systems was the same as Elite Foot or Knights, which made 6 frontages of double-deep take your whole army -- in Triumph 6 frontages of double-deep leaves you 12 pts for other stuff -- four stands of Light Foot, for example.

Yes, I figured other balance forces were at work in the system. Points costs, new and adjusted troop types and most curious, different numbers of elements for the opposing armies instead of 12 v 12 should make for a new experience. I can't wait to try the system out. Thanks DK!
