So far I am liking the new skirmisher model, and I think the base skirmisher stats are solid.

The heavy skirmisher I think is a bit too tanky though, here are a few showings:

Spoiler :



So the knight and the longsword are the two common melee units going against the heavy skirmisher, and you can see its tanking them pretty well. For a super fast light unit that is really not supposed to be staying in combat, this seems like a bit too much staying power.

Proposal: A simple adjustment to the heavy skirmisher's CS to reduce some of its tankiness against melee.
Makes sense, but how impactful is 1 CS difference?
As a ballpark, if a longsword is attacking the unit. The longsword will deal an average of ~1.8 more damage, and take 1 less damage in retaliation against a CS 17 heavy skirmisher compared to a CS 18 one.
What's the expected damage a same tier melee can do to a skirmisher? For reference my heavy skirmisher is only 15CS and is expected to take ~45 damage from longswords. With 5 moves, the VP skirmisher should have even lower defense.
I sponsor this proposal.
