Armored trolls

I think they should add a Armored troll as a beast or units . Maybe it should be like a sand troll but better :D

interesting concept, i doubt that they would be a rank and file unit are they are pretty dumb but they could make an effective beast unit. however, it may be better as an optional piece of equipment as having an armoured troll and a regular trool would seem a bit pointless as they would have the same stats bar armour, but it seems like a worthy idea. I'll make sure to talk to dave about it and get back to you.

Thinking about it I like it and would not take ages to do. I think it would be better like Trish said with it being a profile option though.

At some point I'm going to release some new pieces for the Orcs and Herlancians and that could be one of them.

Perhaps an +2 armor and -1 endurance -1 movement should make it, or even -2 endurance, -2 move, for balancing more.

You as well it wouldn't take to much work from adapting the prints either...

Maybe have them as an elite unit with one extra attack and called them 'War Harden Trolls'. I think -2 endurance would be a little to much, though -1 may be ok for them.

Yep all your right :) I'll see if there's enough time this week to work on them, as it would be nice for the Orcs to have a new unit when they are updated next year.
