Nice work on the Lammasu benefit ;)

I think it is definitely a viable choice now.

Not sure if it's exactly the right thread, but it's worth mentioning that because the big benefits of lamassus are lost on overlords, a 20-30 pt price drop would make lamassus something to consider compared to the far superior great tauruses for only 30 pts more.

For high priests...I think you've succeeded in making a them a serious choice, which is impressive.

Comparing this version to the RH version the two are identical statwise and what they bring to the party, but this version is 20 points more expensive. This version does get chaos armour, which based on the Bull Centaur Lord is worth ten points, so the High Priest should be 10 points less - unless you care to argue that something with identical abilities should cost more just because.

I spoke with Birdoff about this last night, and he said he felt that it *should* be the price of the RH High Priest, meaning 190. So, hopefully this is fixed.

If he comes with chaos armor now, he now has a new option to buy magical armor that he did not have before.
I'm not sure if 4+ normal armor and the option for magical is worth 20 points, but it is an additional bonus that should not be overlooked.

Which was why I indicated that he should run about 200 points now. He has lost a point of Ld in this version, which is an attempt to make sure we consider bringing an overlord to the party, instead of going for the ld 10 high priest. I don't think that giving them the option to buy magical armour is worth any points - why should my baseline car cost more just because I now have some additional options?

Agreed.

And that Chaos Armor ISN'T free. You go from LD10 to LD9, as was pointed out. That pip of LD on your General is surely worth more than any Chaos Armor on a mage you don't want in Combat anyways, so I am of the opinion that he should cost 190, and not 200, because the Chaos Armor being factored in at best equates to the points for the LD hit.

He also have +1 Attack compared to RH with the option of 3 Attacks (Arcane Apparatus) + a magic weapon. So, if you choose you can make a fighty wizard. I can see him a 200 pts but no less.
