Thanks for the comments!

I'm glad you like the design. Like a lot of my units on this thread, I don't own these guys at all. These are just pictures I took from the internet for stuff that did exist to build a design around. I don't believe they even come based in the first place but I would mount them on a peanut base if I were to actually do it. I have never tried hexless scape before but it sounds interesting (although I do enjoy the simplicity that the hex system provides).

That's great to hear. I tried to go out of my way to help new members so I'm glad that it paid off for you.

They're fairly simple, and I do worry that they'd play too similarly to the wolves of Badru, and would probably not be worth their points. However, they do seem like they'd be very fun to play and I'm really glad you shared them!
Yeah, if you go to the OP you can see the whole cycle I rounded out for cavalry squads. They were deliberately designed to not be worth their points. These guys may need a bit more help and perhaps an extra attack die on their special but I'd imagine they'd be a clunkier, more expensive wolves squad most of the time.

We'd love to get your input Regardless, I hope all is well with you and thank you for sharing your custom!
I'll see if I can poke around over there for a bit but I mostly plan on posting a number of custom unit ideas to round things out then fading away again. I don't quite have the same time for Scape as I used to although I still pop by from time to time to see what's going on.
