So not much hope for seeing large and grand armies duke it out under your control?
Actually, considering the screenshots, it looks like (just guestimating here, mind you) we will have armies of at LEAST 30 units or so, if you decide to go the cannon fodder route.
Well, I hope this snippet from Frogboy's May 26 post is more indicative of the army size...
Contemporary fiction tends to trivialize the significance of a non-industrialized society being able to train and equip 10,000 men with swords, plate mail, steel helmets, leather boots, etc. But in reality, being able to do that is an incredible achievement.
Granted, he does not explicitly say we will have 10,000 men under arms, but I hope to see tactical battles of certainly several hundreds of units. That may be pie-in the sky, but I also reemember a Frogboy post (March 16) where he mentions creatures that could take out squadrons of soldiers - that sounds like more than 30 to me.
Unless I am misunderstanding your use of the word units - are you talking individual men when you say units, or are you talking about a squad or company when you say units?
