Dragon Men - New race idea. Sun, 04 May 2008 22:47
Dragon Men (aka Dracci)

***
Warning the Chris pop science is at work again so sorry to those in Spain who can easily disprove that it isn't hot and dry Very Happy )

http://www.15mm.co.uk/Dracci.htm
http://www.15mm.co.uk/TTF_Fantasy_Creatures.htm (for scorpions)
www.15mm.com should stock the same lines too

The Dracci come from the hotest driest parts of the world, including the heartland of Spain and have a distressing look of dragon hood about them (hence their nick name Dragon Men).

Changes from normal human unit behaviour(*):
Missile ranges reduced by one as they only make use of slings and javelins for projectile weapons
No cavalry (partly cause nothing will let them ride them and partly because I can't find minis to represent them) though they do make use of trained large scorpions as the equvilent of Blue cavalry.
Very tough, well extremely tough hide($) they will ignore the first matching helmet rolled against them in each battle.

Deployment
This is a bit of a toughy as they are stupidly hard to take down but with limited cavalry and missile ranges gut feeling says swap out humans on a 1 for one basis.

(*) Morale, Movement, Support conditions etc
($) They embed valued minerals, metals etc into their skin much as dragons pick up treasure after lying on their horde

As usual your thoughts / comments welcome
