Is there? There were 25+ to start out with, and we didn't see that many die. My impression was that there were still plenty off-panel.
Agreed, we still see them in the background of various panels too. I'd guess there are about a dozen left. I don't even think all of them went into the stack, some were just distractions (albeit most of those likely dusted, but there are still some.)
That being said however...I don't think any will survive the engagement. The King is gonna die somehow, but his stack will survive to take vengeance.
I think we started out with around 30 Archons. 28-32, though I don't remember where I read that.
And think about it. We saw them take a good bit of damage. First the hatamancer's volley, which was probably close to a full turn's worth of juice for him. Then a couple hundred well-led archers while they closed. Then combat with the unipegataurs and orlies. Not to mention the pew-pew guns.
I can't imagine them having more than half their force remaining by the time they were actually in a position to attack, and we only see, like, 7 or 8 focusing down Ossomer. If they had the numbers, wouldn't they have gone after Ossomer and the king at the same time?
Once Ossomer is down they go after the king, and he kills three outright in the latest comic. Sure, a few might be busy distracting the unipegataurs and orlies, but I don't think those are in much of a position to do anything. The only ones who are free to act, right now, are the 4 or 5 who just took down Slately, and at most I see them maybe trying to go after a caster or summat. They certainly aren't gonna have much freedom to act right now, which was the point I was making in the first place. : P
Assuming 30 Archons, anyway, the total bounty is 150k shmuckers. We know that promoting an heir is "very costly", so I'd imagine something like 100k, maybe 120k.
I don't think the dual king beat down is right. We can assume that the Archons' "REGEDIT" removed slately's flying special, and we see him falling and losing his grip on his weapon. I think that if he did manage to recover from that, we'd get a more obvious cue. As it is, aerial combatants just move around a lot, I suppose, hence the supposed inconsistencies.
