[Design Note: Some of these units are very strong and encountering several of them at full strength would likely cause Wilkinson something of a headache. I've therefore been careful to balance scenarios. We want the scenarios to be challenging but don't want Wilkinson to get slaughtered in his first action. Units can therefore be fielded at half strength (or even fewer). To do this I simply reduce the points cost of the unit as appropriate. So a half strength unit of cannibals will cost just 3 pts etc.]
