I had recently outfitted a small army for a warbands game. I hastidly put together an army and chucked in two outriders just to get up near 250 and not be like the other empire players. After the game i was talking to one of the more experianced warhammer players in the group we were chatting and he brought up his distast for outriders, saying that they couldn't shoot and move in a single turn. Now i know repeater pistols are shoot or move, but doesn't fast cavalry over rule that?
Rules do not override one another unless one specifically says so. Outriders therefore only get a partial use of the fast cavalry rule.
Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.Originally Posted by amishcellphone
Hence why no-one uses them.
Although they can march and shoot with their Repeater pistols, they can't move and shoot full stop with their Repeater Handguns. From what I hear, you want to get them into an advantageous position before unleashing several lead balls into your enemy's face (rather, the faces of his figures).
there is actually a player at my own club who makes use of 3 units of out riders. while unable to move and fire they are still VERY mobile and pack a horrendous amount of firepower.
try to think of them as dragoons rather than conventional fast cavalry. they move to take an advantagous position then unleash a volly of fire in their next turn
(as opposed to reiters, who pistoliers are based on)
