This is the start of a new series, that will hopefully bring new ideas and tactics to the forums. Each week, a new topic will be posted up about a different unit in the army book. This gives you your chance to discuss the unit to its fullest. So, please leave your comment!
How do you use this unit effectively? Is the buckler a worthy option? What about their other weapon options? How many would you take?
Well I usually run 2x units of 10x w/no command, which are mainly used to protect the flanks of my pikemen, but they have also been good at protecting spellcasters and guarding your war-machines. The buckler isn't worth it in my opinion, and the best option is to give them a pistol, which gives them an S4 armor piercing shot, which helps them if they are charged with there stand and shoot, plus they can act as a detachment for the pikemen units in a way.
I run about 10 with pistols too, though always a musician - just in case. Helps even out combats a little and for when they bait and flee and the like.
