Day 117, and one of my starting companions dies, and it really was my fault.
I hate wolfriders, possibly more than Orcs a this point. I had a good formation going, that basically checked the wolfriders, but I left a gap.1st error.
And then 3 of them went through the gap and surrounded my marksman.
Then I fancy footworked him away from the riders, to the west of the map.
And that was the 2nd error.
I should have moved him towards the east, where the rest of my soldiers were.
Then he could have swapped in with someone more durable /expendable.
Lvl 8 marksman gone.
Still my lvl 7 and 8 wreckers are basically immune to goblin arrow fire, which was proofed in that battle. They are wearing some heavy armour (320) and helmet (230)
Edit: There was a 3rd error, which was forgetting that wolfriders are 2 in 1 (kill 1 and either the rider or the wolf remains) and that they hit hard. 3 attacks I think.
