Yeah - I was messing around with the world builder of course, and seeing what happened with various combinations of units - I wasn't even playing a game as such. The long and the short of it is that I had a barbarian modern armor and a Spanish bear - yeah I know - it will never happen in a game - either of them. The barbarian armor attacked the bear (in a forest tile admittedly) and LOST. I was too busy picking my jaw up off the floor to get a screenshot - sorry. It really did happen. I was trying something else actually, and the armor was near the bear and I didn't have control over it, so the battle happened. The spanish bear was awarded 10 experience points for winning the battle. By this time I was nearly hysterical, but was severely let down down by the fact that no promotions were available to this extraordinary bear! I wonder if he'd have been awarded more than 10 xp if it had not been a barbarian Armor? I suppose I will never find out. I'm sure I could run that same scenario ten thousand times and never have it happen again.
