Goal:
Force players to rotate their lines more aggressively, so that elite units aren't capable of plugging gaps indefinitely.

Details:
(non stacking, but refreshable) -1 movement and a -10% CS/RCS that lasts 2 turns for units attacked by skirmishers.

Considerations:
  • I still don't find the skirmisher line compelling to build even with the latest changes. I'd like if these units had a specific niche that made them worth adding to every combat group.
  • Since the malus doesn't stack, it wouldn't make sense to build the majority of your army from these units.
  • Presumably, there is some historical basis for skirmisher units being deployed to soften enemy units and help prevent retreat.
 
Proposal failed due to lack of sponsorship.
