TRIAL RULES - Opponent's Approval Required
A Marksman of a Crossbowmen unit may change his crossbow to
either of the following:
Heavy Repeater Crossbow
"Though the Elves of Naggaroth have long mastered the manufacture
and use of light repeating crossbows, some Tilean engineers
sought to improve the concept and attempted to make a weapon
to rival the Repeater Handgun. The result was a formidable weapon
that could either act as a normal crossbow or send numerous
bolts at a shorter range."
Rules: St4, range 30", Move&Fire. If the target is within 24",
can use Multiple Shots (x3)
Cost: A Marksman may change his crossbow to a Heavy Repeater for
Tilean Scope Bow
"Angered at having been beaten in the range and accuracy department by Empire
engineers sought to make a crossbow as accurate and far-reaching
as the famed Hochland Long Rifle."
Rules: St4, range 36", Move or Fire. May pick out characters from
units (at -1 to hit) as if using a Hochland Long Rifle.
May choose his target independently of his unit.
Cost: A Marksman may change his crossbow to a Scope Bow for
As you might notice, they are slightly worse for the cost than their handgun counterparts. Point is, if someone complains, just show them the official rules for Repeater Handguns and Long Rifles, and I'd guess they'd shut up ^_^
Anyways, any who would think these might be of use (For DoW players most certainly yes, as they can't have Handgunners, but any Empire players who would use these things?)
For Mods: As I don't wish to spam the forums with two clone posts, would it be possible to create a referrer copy on the DoW forum? (ie. move this to DoW, move it back here, but leaving a ghost on the DoW forum)
For players who comment: Please point out which army you play (Empire/DoW)

Use Light, Beasts, Metal instead of Heavens
NecroLords: Use at least one Death Mage
Brets: Use Peasants&Damsels
Skaven: Don't use Skryre SAD
Great idea, I play Empire and it would be great to be able to give a Marksman from a Crossbowman unit some cool gear.
