I want to field a small unit of rough riders but I am not sure how I should equip them. I like hunting lances for that first round punch but after that they are more of a hindrance. I like the idea of giving my riders 2 special weapons so they can play more of a flexible roll. Is the trade off for lances worth losing the special weapons?
Depending on your interpretetion of the rules you might not be allowed to have both lances and special weapons:
"The squadron can replace their laspistols or close combat weapons with hunting lances"
And models with lances can't have special weapons...
As I read it you either have to buy lances for the entire squadron or no lances at all.
I wouldn't make a big deal out of it though, but others might.
I'd go with the hunting lances since, more then likely you will be able to charge with them... and if you don't they will get shot and die ( still t3 sv5+ ). 2 special weapons arn't gonna do much, although 2 meltas might work for tank hunting...but then again why not just use a lascannon .....
