So there has been talk of Flyers not always getting Speed 10, a plan to separate Fly from Nimble (which I assumed meant Flyers would not automatically get both) and a lot of talk about the dominance of Crushing Strength (some talk of reducing across the board or putting in a little TC instead).
Then lo and behold! The Hero on Chimera is revealed! How exciting to see how this unit will be now that all the above mentioned tweaks have been buzzing around for so long!
Speed 10, Fly, Nimble, Crushing 3.
What happened to the fixes?
With keeping the ability to At the Double and Nimble pivot 90 (unless this rule changes) this unit will be as powerful as ever to threaten the flanks of an army!
It will not help to make Phalanx good vs flyers from the front, when these juggernauts will (as always) slam into them from the flanks!
I was really looking forward to Speed 8/9 with Nimble, or Speed 10 non-nimble on EXACTLY these kinds of units…
