Arbaletrier suggestion

Attach the shield to their backs and disable it when they activate their ability. Makes them so much more unique looking than regular crossbow units, and that is kind of the point of unique units, no? to make them feel different?


EDIT: A gameplay repercussion or addition of this is that players will know when the ability is on cooldown from whether they have the shield or not. IMO, sounds like a cool interaction.


it looks quite similar to what a Genoese Crossbowman would be

That shield is called pavise and it was used by the Genoese.
