I'm curious how they work with WOTG. Two headed ogres don't need weapons to do significant damage, perhaps these are our version.
I introduced 5 automatons to my military. Their fighting skills are pretty abysmal so far.
They train with the marauders (who have pretty good skills) so their skills should shoot up like crazy. But it really does not. Maybe their lacking curiosity hampers them?
Anyway, lets give them a season or two of constant training, and report back. They might be useful as PunchBots. Also, everything that soaks up damage is a good thing, as it protects my precious gnomes.
Edit: it seems they train better when left among themselves. They probably didnt get a hit in while sparring, and could not dodge at all, so the skills went up sloooow. They are quite OK for military purpose. One of them punched a bear through the ribcage and right into the lung with the first hit. They also are not stingy in a "real fight" as one of them has scored 2 twoheaded ogres and one goblin in the first fight with them.
Would I replace my entire army with them? No way! they EAT through coal, and are slowpokes when it comes to movement. Their dodge value also seems low, I wonder if it ever rises (with that nimbleness? unlikely...). But they are a fine addition to my army. Might get myself some more.
