Settra has a base unit strength of 2

So if he is off of his chariot,

What does he count as?
A monster?


(is there really any advantage of having a Base US of 2?)

No advantage I'm aware of. Some disadvantages, though... It means his LOS is 90 degrees forward, and you don't take a -1 to hit shooting at him.

Yep, I guess it'd be monster/calvary-like.

You'd be limited to 90 LOS, would not get the other benefits that are reserved to US characters (like skrimishing), etc...

Thanks

that just seems weird, but I plan to use him, and i wanted to do it correctly

That's due to a change in wording for characters/skirmishers.

Fingers crossed, that will be fixed in the next Army Book.

Unless they happen to discontinue Settra from the army book. Happens sometimes with special characters.

With the way that they're throwing special characters around, I highly doubt he'll be taken away, just likely changed a bit.

You mean, actually make him useful?

Sure there's an advantage, you get to count outnumbering against units with a US of 1 and you tie with units that have a US of 2.

I would not be surprised if a Dark Elf Assassin took it upon himself to 1) destroy Settra's chariot and 2) kill Settra.

After which he will pass his leadership test against settra's curse, only to be eaten by a swarm of flying beetles. All in all not a bad day for a druchii :p
