i thought we had a problem of to much people dying in warhammer too be believable anyway, and now you say that the regiments and battles should be bigger? How does that make it more believable?
a roman centuria was 80 men, each of these was made up from 10 contubernia of 8 men each. each centuria was part of cohort of 6 centurias and there were 10 cohorts in a legion. so:
i'd say a warhammer regiment is between a centuria and a contubernia, which is both less than a hundred men. So why couldnt a warhammer regiment be this? we're just seeing a few centurias fighting each other as a small part of a much larger battle. And why is it strange that dragon or teclis just kills 20 men? i'd say thats warhammer. heroes are powerful (how many real life heroes kills 20 men in a battle) but they are just people. if you do your x10 idea then we're saying teclis could just wave his hand and kill 200 enemies? or that archon alone could slaughter 200 men in a single battle? do you know how ridiculous that is?
