    Which unit makes for the best bodyguard?

    Same drill as the Dwarf forum. Take into account all factors (points, effectiveness, etc).

    You don't have to post a reason, just as long as I believe that's your honest opinion, but a reason is always good.

    Thankyou for your time.

    ED: *kicks self. Carp. Another thread, another typo that I can't modify *goes off into the corner and mutters something barely legible about people that type too quick and thus frequently make mistakes.

    bodyguard for what? I think it makes a difference what you're trying to protect (level 4 wizard, archlector, captain BSB, Queen's marbles, etc.)

    I don't see how it can be that different since the units job is to protect the character, but I suppose I had combat characters in mind (including the General and BS, so base your vote on them.

    Stubborn units with nearby BSBs. Always the best IMO. I've run down more generals than I've killed.

    Greatswords, because they are stubborn.

    well, you see, that's the problem I have with all these polls you're running AFG. They don't account for much, because they don't include most of the selections I would use necessarily and they certainly don't account for different situations. I'm really not sure what you're trying to accomplish with these polls. If you let us know, we might be able to help you find the answers you're looking for.

    In my opinion, the best body guard is the swordsman. A unit of 25-30 with another swordsman detachment of 8-9 and maybe a detachment of handgunners works better than any of the other units you mentioned for me. I don't use inner circle, I don't use greatswords anymore, because they don't fit into the playing style I have (which can't afford the special unit selections) I think it also matters what kind of character you are using as well, because an Archlector, doesn't need a bodyguard if he takes the war alter, a captain is usually on a pegasus in my armies. Wizards can't hurt anyone, so they would need a bodyguard, but I wouldn't send my wizard into combat like I would my knights or my greatswords (combat units in my opinion).

    But if you're wondering why you don't have 40-50 (average number of different fantasy viewers in a week) people voting in your polls, I think some of them may agree with me that there needs to be more thought and reasoning placed behind some of the polls here on LO.

    *smacks hed on keyboard*

    *keyboard breals*

    *swears loudly at keyboard*

    *fixes keyboard with #8 wire*

    *sighs* I'll see how this goes. The majority of posters sem relatively satisfied, but I do have a MkII version in progress (it's more specific and clear).

    Well Reiksguard may make a good bodyguard, but thats a waste of their abilties, they could be used more offensivly, and be more effective.
