Notes on old links:

In may 2014 the Your move Games Forum got moved from the main Your Move Games website at yourmovesgames.com to its own domain at ymgforum.com. All the topics, posts, memberships, etc. were kept but since the posts were left unchanged, text-based hyperlinks from a post made in the forum before May 2014 that directed to somewhere else inside the forum now redirect to the Your Move Games home page.


If you see a link like this http://yourmovegames.com/forum/index.php/topic,133.0.html what you probably really want is http://ymgforum.com/index.php/topic,133.0.html
In other words, if you want to follow a link to somewhere nifty and interesting inside the forum but somehow you end up outside the forum and you don't know why, you could try this: just replace the part of the url that says "yourmovegames.com/forum" with "ymgforum.com" That has worked for me every time.

I was planning to ask for those as my laptop died. Do you have a link to the Excel army builder?

Links updated. I archived v3.0 and provided a link to the errata just in case. Thanks to Hannibal for the new excel army builder. Thanks to Zelc for VASSAL and Tabletop Simulator Files.

A direct link to the well-hidden "Monthly" (Hahahahaha!) Realm.

My initial thoughts on those are I don't think they are of interest in as broadly as I was shooting for, and I don't think the championship rules are that hard to find without help for anyone who is interested.

Also before I would even consider including either of these links first you would need to explain: why is there a dude with the head of a horse in there?

I also would like to mention that when the forum got moved, a lot of links went dead and just redirect now to the Your Move Games Home Page.
If you see a link like this http://yourmovegames.com/forum/index.php/topic,133.0.html what you probably really want is http://ymgforum.com/index.php/topic,133.0.html
In other words, all you need to do a lot of the time is just replace "yourmovegames.com/forum" with "ymgforum.com"

Yup, what BubblePig said concerning the links.

It's one of the two Chinese mythical guardians of the Underworld, Ox-head and Horse-face.  (Which one of those two is left as a exercise for the reader.  ;) )  Hence the name of the unit, "Terracotta Guardians."  Pretty sure that explanation is provided on the flavor-text of the unit card.
