    Oh :confused:... well then I don't really need either special rule, neat ;) thanks for pointing that out.
    Am I still thinking earlier ed. When I believe skirmishers are at -1 to hit, when shot at?

    Skirmishers are still -1 to hit when an enemy wishes to shoot at them.

    If they weren't I think some of my friends would have done better in shooting phase, then the case is :p in any case it's not my fault I'm so convincing on rules that is no more/never was. ... skirmishers not the only example (even if I were right ) :D

    OT: the rule for skirmishers was one of my earlier ideas for these guys, so it's good to know that it still follows the rule I had in mind.

    I must say I like the terror bird or giant raptor as a model best. Though the concept would fit better with feathered raptors, that model just seem uncanny. Something about the head....

    Thanks I should perhaps look into if any of my mates would like to play test them, now with all this new AoS. Perhaps they are more than willing to accept new stuff into the oldhammer system, knowing we won't see anything like it for some time ;)

    Lovely big bird.
    To be honest I would appreciate some feathered dinosaur minis in the future.

    terror birds would make a good mount for Amazons, IMO. there was a miniatures company (maidenhead models, IIRC) that used to make amazon terror bird rider minis in 28mm.

    Some of what I have read differs ^ from this.

    But what I have read about this concerned dogs and foxes. I think that the bottom line is-will-Be: Humans have bred for different traits in different species. Cattle must have been deliberately bred to be stupid-dumb. Dogs far far less so. (And it varies by breed with dogs.)
