So was looking at the tile update and noticed belit's guards roll a single orange die. This means to my knowledge you can only kill the basic minions and that's it. Mummies, Pict hunters and Leaders are untouchable. Fine I guess but what about missions with guard minions? They have two armour so belit's guards appear to be pretty useless other than meat shields?

Just curious if I've missed something.

Belt's guards have the ability "Sacrifice", which means that if one of the heroes is targeted for an attack (and is in the same zone as a guard), you can choose to target the guard instead.
In other words - professional meat shields

You made it personal. All it did was buy you a little more pain than most.

Not to mention, aside from soaking up damage, they can keep enemies busy on a space letting Belit run away, if need be, for less points.
