Haha, very true. And the Gardener is probably the worst. =)

I have to agree with sammas on this one - cutpurse is the worst in my mind.

I think the skeleton is a fine unit - it fills a role for the undead (cheap firepower and screening) not covered by the other units, at a reasonable cost.

The cutpurse however, really doesn't fit in with the other gnome units. It is slow and more importantly limited to melee attacks, unlike both the wolf rider and legendmaker, which means mixing it into your army is almost certainly going to end up giving away kills. Plus on a direct cost comparison, it's almost dead-even in terms of firepower and durability versus wolf riders. The mug ability is a neat, but I don't think it outweighs the probability that it will end up being killed in a situation where a wolf rider could have survived. Losing an extra cutpurse because he couldn't attack from two squares away on that nice safe mountain costs you a whole lot of mugging proceeds.

I would also like to offer up the PlagueBearer for consideration as one of the worst units. About the only thing it has going for it is it's better at killing hags than hags are, but otherwise why not build a hag instead? Damage *now* is much more important than damage later in most situations. And taking damage itself every round really makes it too fragile. I think he might fit in with the afflicted much better at tier 3, with an initial attack of 5, 1 armor, and cost scaled appropriately.

I think the only problem I have with the plaquebearer is that it loses health every turn. Maybe make it so it only loses health every other turn perhaps?

I actually don't mind the plaguebearer as a unit. It causes decent damage, and is pretty much necessary for afflicted to counter skeletons and other 5hp units which would flood hags. And it isn't ineffectual against armored targets either.

I suppose afflicted and gnomes can't really complain though - they're two of the strongest races.

If you could stick your opponent with just one unit, and that's the only unit he would have the rest of the game or until it dies, which unit would it be?
I'd second the vote for the Gardener. He's great as part of a force, but since he can't attack . . .
