What makes Forlorns not suitable as the "elite" infantry unit you're talking about there? (I'm sure there's a problem, but I'm equally sure I don't know what it is).
I'm curious why anyone says forlorns don't work as an anvil? From my experience they are fantastic as an anvil and a hammer actually. My issue is supporting them with peasants.
I can't see peasants supporting cavalry very well either honestly.
But infantry supporting better infantry, and cavalry supporting better infantry.. that sorta works. My other issue is getting it all together due to points and having characters to support the lesser cavalry and characters to support the infantry. Thats when it gets more difficult.
