I was thinking of different options with his armor buff:
1. Reinforce Armor - 1 turn +1/1 armor
2. Reinforce P.Armor - 2 turns +0/1 and Reinforce Armor - 2 turns +1/0

Meanwhile he normally gets:
Sharpen Weapon - 1 turn +2-3 power.

Stun is too powerful and creates problems (physical based abilities).

Spliting him further to two different units is unnecessary with such short buffs imho.

Sure - You can go along with that. Or give me the color and I'll change it with gimp (selecting the whole area and moving color values tends to give better representation).

Brown I'm a bit confused on the positions so I think you should edit it because if I did I might ruin the unit's face :lol:

Hmmm maybe he a batlee blacksmither i suggest one status for him
Hp:18
Ark:8
Armor:2/2
Sigh:4
Rng:1
Action:1
Speed:3
Extra information:carry a one hand hammer,use a plate armor on body,some leather on legs,mail boots,iron jambs,he cause extra damage on siege machines(+200%)
For now It does not do extra damage to heavy armor, sheild bearer etc class, it is very cheap and would be very unbalanced.
And have ability mencionad
Buff weapon:+1 dmg for unit select for 2 turns coldown:3
Armor buff:+1 for all type of armor for unit select for 2 turns coldown:4

@Endru1241 should we like make a tech that allows the player/AI to recruit these blacksmiths? Or should they be a unit that can already be recruited without any required techs?btw the structures that can summon them is the TC and the blackksmith building

What You posted here is easily 4 turn unit.
Besides SirLuciano already posted accepted stats - in such case it's quite impolite to propose whole unit stats without reasoning.

The entire purpose of this unit is early buff, so I don't think any tech is desired. It should be normal unit recruitable straight after buying shop item for gems.

Correction.
Te idea behind and one of purposes of this unit is early buff, so I don't think any tech is desired. It should be normal unit recruitable straight after buying shop item for gems.

Seems more fitting with the brown beard :D then this cheap unit is settled then the price for this in the upgrades shop should be 1-2 gems since he's just a cheap 2 turns unit and if this unit can buff a worker it could either give the worker dmg +1 where he can now fight for a few turns
Or
Increase their ability to build/repair

Which one is better?🤔

I don't set up gem prices. Stratego himself does that, as he is the only one having full control over gem balance (including bringing in campaigns).
About worker bonus - normally both abilities will affect war units - it's like that for every other buff.
I also don't think users will attack with worker, like ever.
For me myself worker not building anything is a waste of his turn.
But there could be 3rd ability introduced - giving any worker type +1-2 mend for 1 turn - I don't think it will create any balance problems and it increases battlefield blacksmith strategic use.

but that wouldn't be kind of appealing, ambreintist research + blacksmither aura would be quite appealing, but blacksmither would be like a leading worker not literally a blacksmither, but, I even liked it, 2 abilities that increase warrior status, building aura and Great fighter, but I would prefer a 5 or 6 turns to do it.

Its not a "worker" its a combat blacksmith which can defend itself and its purpose is early buff and since its a cheap 2 turn unit the stats should be weaker than normal troops
