There are a few main things that these changes will do.

  1. Make Llanero a more “serious unit”. While the Llanero is stat-wise good, it doesn’t feel fun to use and I don’t think it represents them as well as my changes would.

  2. I couldn’t find that Gran Colombia but was very navy-focused historically, so things like the Imp ships and Ironclads don’t feel right. (although the sloops are probably fine)

  3. I wanted to remove the “get imp units” and replace them with a more unique army. Hence the Llaneros and the Soldadoes with a special attack. I couldn’t find a good reference to any “Independence Guard” but based on how they look in-game I think they got them from this picture.

    These kinda looked like Soldados and Soldados are (IMO) very cool units+think they fit better thematically than “Independence Guards” which again I could find no reference to.

  4. Rangers just fit better historically than what the Albion Legion card does now. Plus they are cool.

  5. Oh and that area big on ranching so that’s why the ranching focus.
