Looks like maybe hexographer but I could be wrong.

I have yet to receive a pm. Just having issues coming up with fluff and names for my ranged units.

Also, how low can I get the upkeep on my scouts, and how high do I have to alter the rest for that to be okay? Hoping for -20, +10, possibly +15.

Also how high can I hike the increased scout pop rate?

I think the way you have it now is already very strong.

Also, yor scouts are called hornets but don't fly?

If they could fly, they would have no combat ability. Give me a break.

Super spammable scouts with combat ability and flight would doom us all; don't argue with it. XD

It's either spamable and decent at combat, or flying and sucky at combat (3/2/0/20, or 3/1/1/20). Also, I love Great bugs.

Throw a princess in, and they hit ground units for 41 damage. Winning.

I do indeed use Hexographer.

Understandslittle, PM incoming. Turn 1 will begin tomorrow afternoon (for me), when I can get the time to send out all the PMs with maps.

Oh Acorn, friend of mine asked me to pass this on. Meatshield is also missing from the unit creator.

Um... bad news. My mouse decided to stop working and I had to spend ages fixing it and now I don't have enough time to do Turn One today.

Sorry.

Alright, updated my side.
Side Name:Zoig
Led by: Sarah Karrygin (non-royal)
Favorted Terrain: Plains
Benefit: +2 points to all units
Secret Benefit: Too awesome to reveal.
Side Livery: A red Zoigling on a gray-blue field.
Zoigling 8/7/1/5 (30) The bread and butter of the Zoig, the Zoigling is small and fragile, but closes in combat with frightening speed and rips enemies to shreds with its razor sharp claws and teeth. Swarms of Zoiglings are to be feared even by well prepared enemies.
Roich 10/2/7/5/garrison (20) Much larger than the Zoigling, the Roich is heavily armored, with plates upon plates covering its bulk. This leaves it with little offensive power, but it is surprisngly difficult to squash for what look to some like an overgrown bug.
Hydralick 5/11/0/5/garrison, ranged (30) The Hydralick uses grooved spines that it shoots out of its body to scour the skys and hard to reach defenses of enemies.
Scourge 3/1/1/20/scout, flying (30) A small creature that is mostly wing, though its body is so light that it floats without effort. Tremendously fast, it is unable to do any damage without sacrificing itself, but makes for an excelent scout.
Brutalick 13/10/7/5/rider, ranged (90+10) The brutalick is a towering monstrosity that looks like some strange combination of hydralick, Roich, and Zoigling. It combines the deadly spines of the Hydralick, with the toughness of the roich and the fearceness of the zoigling in combat.
Droin 8/2/2/12/fabrication, builder, survayor, moutain capable, burrowing, Speed Boost (60+10) Droins are nearly helpless, always prefering to flee from battle. Their purpose is to build, construct, expand, and enhance. They are infinately useful off the battlefield, enhancing their allies with sharper teeth or harder shells. They collect resources of all kinds, and have a particular fondness of gems.
Queen 8/6/2/6/dance fighting, leadership, simple healomancy (60+10) The Queen is a fragile unit that helps control and lead the Zoig swarm. A Queen's presence envigors all nearby Zoig, and she can help keep them in the fight longer by spitting a healing saliva on allies. Enemies should beware, as the saliva is quite toxic to anything besides Zoig of her own brood.
Devourer 17/13/8/16/flying, heavy, speed boostx2 (120+20) The Devourer looks like a massive worm with wings that spits huge globs of acid on its foes. Few things can stand up to a Devourer for long, and fast as they are, few things can escape them either.
Ultralick 16/12/9/19/heavy, unstopable charge (sonic breath), burrowing, super speed+, earthshaker, terrorizing (smoke breath) (300+50) Ultralicks are the Zoiglings given the Roich's armor, and made a hundred times larger. They have huge scything pincers that can crush anything unfortionate enough to get between them, and can 'swim' effortlessly through the ground. Their presence on a battlefield can cause enemies to go into an utter panic, abandoning all order in an attempt to not get eaten whole. Ultralicks are so strong that even city walls crumble beneath them with ease.
