I'm glad to find someone else with the same opinion of Doomweavers.
Since subscribing to the list I've been astounded at the number of
refrences to Doomweavers as cheesy. As an Elder player I rarely
field them, as the usually proove next to useless.

On the subject of cheese in general, I think that players should look
at the cheese from the other players point of view a bit more. In my
experience it is just as annoying trying to play with a *potentially*
destructive unit, as it is against it. This is because your opponant
spends so much effort trying to counter your threat that you rarely
get a chance to use it to its full potential.

I'd go so far as to say that there are no cheesy units in the game,
only cheesy combinations ( such as the much maligned overlord company
in small battles). As long as players don't try to abuse the spirit
of the game, I have to agree that all the armies are pretty well balanced.
