It would make sense, if so, to have the dwagons provide shelter and "ride out" the arrow volleys. If there's still enough ammo, then leaving the Atrium makes more sense.

I subscribe. Let's not pass blame on who's not responsible, let's try to vary our who-s-an-idiot discussions (my money now is on- Charlie is a complete dunderhead), and we may even agree that flooding the exposed courtyard with arrows (while instructing your infantry to block the exits of the Atrium) is a sound plan.

It's a strong possibility.
My guess is however that she has just as good a chance of being functional as any Hob Knight. Those had leadership too, after all, so we should assume that either everything that had leadership was lost (but, weirdly, just the casters were spared- how convenient), or that leadership is lost because any stacking structure was lost after the fall.
My pick, for now, is the latter.

We've seen GK use cloth golems in the exposition at the start of book two. Its possible Wanda, a MK caster or the archons made them, but I assumed it was simple decryption. Although I would personally recommend golems backed up by the dollamancer, dittomancer, healomancer combo. With the dollamancer's and warlord's bonus multiplied by the dittomancer with the healing a Jetstone golem would be worth way more than a GK golem.teratorn wrote:JS should send in golems, I'd guess since they are constructs and don't pop they can't be decrypted.
This might be the way to beat GK, a huge army of golems with only a few warlords to direct the
I would agree. If they lose here they essentially lose. Wanda MUST die. If Wanda dies GK loses. Its worth the risk of croaking a slim few units in the atrium; GK already has plently corspes to pick from comparitivly, and IIRC most of the warlords mounted on the dwagons were alive, so they were gonna get leadeship anyway.atalex wrote:I'd say it was a very sound plan since we just saw an arrow miss Wanda's head by six inches! It's not Tram's fault that Wanda is protected by Fate armor.

Look in panel 2, just to the top right of the speech balloon, you'll see what appears to be a red-haired GK knight holding off a good half-dozen Jetstone troops. Sylvia is most definitely up and and about...

Given that two arrows myth, it is almost certainly a reference to Carol Kane in the Muppet Movie (1979).

Why do you think it is something other than her natural personality? She has never given a second thought to uncroaking a unit and this is not even one she knew. Uncroaking Banhammer was callous, decrypting Antium for the sake of leadership is just everyday business.

That bit is pure evil. So callous.
Yeah, warlords mean nothing to Wanda now, they are totally replaceable. Only high level ones like Ansom, or unique ones like Parson, are worth even giving a second thought.
