That sounds like a reasonable alteration. I suppose, as an alternative to
the Pilium/missile attack, there could be a one time benifit as follows:
+2 to melee rating the first time the unit is engaged in any given battle,
and cannot be charged in that engagement.
That actually may be a more elegant way of administering it, with
(slightly) less bookeeping. We'll just ignore the Pilium's affect on
shields and the like.
