Re: The Bigger They Are, the Harder They Fall... Right?

My advice? Try them all!

The best way to learn what does and doesn't work is to build a map, draft an army, and have at it! Getting new units is a joy in this game, and the first few times you "take 'em for a spin", you'll often be surprised at what they can and can't do. In other words, the new "Giants" may seem really imposing and unstoppable, but you'll find that the largest figure in the game can fall to repeated attacks from the smallest. (though I really dont' recommend attacking Charos with the rats!) (But do use the rats to engage and tie up Charos!)

And please don't take any Heroscapers consensus as scripture either! There's a lot of good wisdom, tactics, and strategies one can learn here, but don't discount your own theory you'd like to test out!

In short, try out every unit against every unit. You might be pleasantly surprised at the unexpected strengths of the "little guys", and likewise surprised at finding the achilles heels of the "Giants". It's the difference between Theoryscape and Heroscape... Playing the game!

And to answer your poll.... ALL of those options work... just try out the ones that you find to be the most fun!
