These units are already in the scenario editor. What about making a few cards/techs that enable them as buff units? (e.g. drummers give a slight speed buff and flag bearers give a slight attack buff, unstackable, numbers can be limited)
As there are already a lot of even weirder buff units in the game, it would not be very out-of-place.
BTW, battleship cards plz.
If someday the devs include Austria and Prussia, I would like they add drummers and flag bearers for them (it’s just a suggestion, I don’t want to start a fire/fight with this topic)
This is already implemented, only in the abstract. The Advanced Arsenal upgrade enables it, though it could be a nice unit to watch.
there is way too much chance of such an addition wrecking the balance of the game, so for that alone i have to say no.
dont worry, that wont happen.
