Most units/characters could use a small tweak (points decrease/increase slight stat line fix or access to different equipment).
The units/characters that needs more work on are atm:
Lothern Sea Guard
Chariots (Tiranoc,Chrace and Skycutter)
These units/characters are quite uncommon and need the focus of the group.
Agree on all of this.
I think MP should give Rapid Fire to any mounted, since they have no benefit from extra rank shooting.
And I think Sea Helm and HandMaiden giving a buff to spears and bow could work.
Still paper characters, so could be killed easy. I think a phalanx drill for Sea Helm as someone suggest is a nice idea, like +1 S first round, spears only.
And Hand Maiden gives Rapid Fire and AP to any bow.

I'd say Silver Helms and Sea Guard can take any banner up to 50 pts, Spears any banner up to 25 and archers can't take a magic banner (in the background they're new to the battlefield). Since we're on the topic of magic items, I'll post my thoughts on what should stay/go and ideas for replacements. Anyone else have Items idea?
Complete agree for banners.
I'd rework the BOTED to a generic 5+ ward and MR1.
For other magic item, from War of the Beard scenario:
Sword of Ages, +1 to hit, +1 A, +2 S, 60 points
??? Dont remember Name Talisman, hit on the bearer are resolved at -3 S, 80 points.
