We had a good chat on Sunday about the dhogu, particularly about the lack of a mounted captain... What would you like to see added to the dhogu force? (feel free to suggest stats etc!)
I also showed off the green for Mark's latest sculpt, a dhogu shaman  Smiley

To get this started...
I'm thinking of doing a dhogu 'archer'. He would probably have captain (4), concentrated fire and a couple of ranged stamina abilities. A further option might be to give him scout(4) so you can get your little group of archers where they are needed.
The other character I'm thinking of is the yirnak captain. The warlord is a bit too expensive (in points) at the moment so the captain would fit in the gap. He would need to be a bit less effective than the warlord and it may simply be a case of dropping his stamina to 1 and making another couple of tweaks.
What do you think of the two ideas?

that's a tough one.... initially I favored the archer captain, but now I think it could be quite handy to have a mounted captain.... maybe a mounted archer captain?   Grin   Wink

With the scout special rule  Cool

Mounted captain would be the best honestly, a scout captain might be a bit op, and we have the trapper already, who can bring friends. So at least you have to give up the trappers beast handler ability.

Have I misinterpreted the original post?

I thought that both options were on offer and the question was more to see how both of them could be optimised. Undecided

That's how I understand it.

I don't think the archer / Ryhad should have the scout ability - keep the trapper there as the specialist in that field.

He definitely needs something to pull the regular archers up with him too (like coordinated fire) as at the moment they're all but useless.

Yup, not an 'either or', just bouncing ideas around! Both figures are easy to do straight away (use the warlord as a captain, give a bow arm to the captain), although I like the idea of doing slightly more for both of them. This week I've been assembling dhogu to cast as single part models like I've already done with the trapper.
I guess if the archer had scout then it would have to be more expensive - probably better to keep it as a cheaper option (and he could always accompany a trapper).
