    Cavalry and Wounds

    I have been playing in a small group for about 18 months now, and never realized this problem until a local club tournament, namely, unit of cavalry (Wood elf Wild Riders, in this case) is charged by, a fast cavalry unit, who inflict 5 wounds on the charge. Previously, since rider has a wound and horse has a wound, I would remove two models and hang a wound ring on the third one; but now I am given to understand that five wounds means 5 models go bye-bye due to the Cavalry Casualties rule on page 31.

    Ia this right? Is the mount's wound meaningless except when counting unit strength?

    Yeah, that's how it works.

    A monstrous mount ridden by a character has separate wounds, but regular cavalry don't get that luxury.

    This is exactly correct.



    Think of it one of two ways if you need some validation in your mind to suspend your disbelief.

    Wound killed rider... his horse was not going to hang around and fight in cohesion with the rest of the unit on it's own. Thus 1 wound, 'kills' rider and mount.

    Wound killed horse... rider now on the ground, likely injured, and if he isn't... well a massive melee is going on around him and he just fell, defenseless, likely in armor/weapons inappropriate for ground fighting and possibly caught up in his riding gear, with enemy troops swarming around and his own troops stomping around (which weight several times his weight on their mounts). And since the enemy just killed his mount, they're very aware he's right there. Thus 1 wound, 'kills' mount and rider.

    Though those are only for fluff. The only reason you need, is the page you already know about.
