I have fought against them in multiplayer and don't think they're anything special. They are too expensive and have very few numbers.

I have tried them out in custom battles and they die easily. Since they only have 20 in each unit, one cavalry charge kills them (Except the Yari Hero).

I think they aren't worth the money.

So has anyone gotten the legendary force achievement yet? I've yet to even build a hero unit, much less an entire army

You don't need an entire army of hero units, if you have one or two plus your general you can go beat some small army with a few ashigaru.

Do you have to use the hero units in the campaign or can you get the achievement from custom battles?

I had a hero in campain (Kanta hero). They can turn the battle sometimes. I think you can only have one hero at a time though.

Anyone else got heroes in a campaign? I haven't gotten that far before finishing the campaign yet, is it worth going for it?

They are pretty good. The archer hero hits on about 80% of their shots every volley. They decimate stationary positions.

The katana hero can also take on 2 units at a time fairly easily.

I had the whole of Japan under my control except that little island near the top. I needed them for experiments.

I trained all the Heroes and with my best general sent them off to the packed island. They are invincible. I had my Katana Hero under archer fire for a whole 20 seconds and only recieved 1 casualty, I actually won in the end against the full stack! But I don't like them, they may be strong but they seem a bit cocky or something...

I just got my first hero unit, the Yari Hero. Let's see how good they are!

Hehe, they are very overpowered. Make sure to check their stats, they have 40+ Moral!

EDIT: I think I should stop writing so much on S2H, because all the sub-forums have my name beside it "Last post... Liam_the_Spartan"

Hmm, there's an allied army close to them made up of almost exclusively cavalry. Should be fun if I attack them How many katana cavalry would it take to defeat a Yari Hero?

I unlocked the “Legendary Force” achievement after a single player custom battle. My general and bow cavalry hero defeated an enemy general.
