hi there,,, im thinking of using the centigors, but need some advice..
do you use full commands? im onlky thing of banner and musician(in case of rallying)
how many do you field? i was thinking of 8, 2 rows of 4, or maybe just 6...
equipment? i read the discussion about the throwing axes, and IF they give additional hand weapons, i might use those, also just for the shooting, or spears? 5 strength is kinda nice..
pls help me out
Ok, with 7th edition in a few weeks, I wouldn't plan on fielding ranks of 4 much longer. You'll need ranks of at least 5 to get rank bonus.
I field 10 with full command, and that is only cause I want a cavalry unit to contribute a banner. I run them with knights, and marauder horsemen, and hounds, and ogres, so they have a lot of fast units, and they are the cheapest fast unit for which ranks do anything, so I slap a standard on them. If you don't support them with significant cavalry AND field at least 2 ranks of them, I wouldn't bother with the banner, cause if they drop it, they feed VP to the foe.
So, if you want a ranked unit, field 10. Otherwise, field 5-6 with musician and maybe champion. I wouldn't bother with throwing axes, as I don't buy the 'contributes a 2nd hand weapon' argument. 7th edition might clear this up. I give them shields, cause the potential for the 4+ armor in prolonged combats is nice. Or they can go S5 on the charge if I want them to.

I agree with koosh. In fact, i think you could even go with two rows of 6 with full command. I've seen this used quite a lot
This gives you more attacks on the charge and also a US of 24, which will help you with outnumber.
give a banner if you use 10 plus, just like regular knights never give them a banner if they are flankers. Flankers are only meant to be usefule on the charge, then they are a mear tool for the mainstay units.
