I am going to write a codex on a new army. What do you think?
This new army allows you to field, DRAGOONS!!.
17th-18th Century Infantry Soldiers who transport themselves on Horseback? I guess it could work. There aren't too many all-cavalry armies out there, are there? You could have stumbled onto something really original here. I like it! I expect they'll have real problems dishing out anti-vehicle though.:rolleyes:
small dragoons for cavalry and huge ones for elite choices. I wasn't thinking of having cavalry chioce for troops but its one options I will include.
Ummm.....I hope to GOD that you dont mean DRAGONS...:wacko:Originally Posted by dfg

Do you mean fantasy in 40k?
The fact you said codex suggests 40k.. But you can already have a dragoon style option in 40k, just take IG rough riders with lasguns. It's such a useless option noone ever takes it, but it is possible.
Unfortunately the 4th edition rules do not allow a unit to travel in multiple transports, so you are stuck with them being either fast attack or foot sloggers. Sorry to disapoint you.
I too would like to be able to develop a Dragoon type unit, but alas it is not yet allowable via the rules.
I am sooooo confused about this post. Do you actually mean Dragoons or Dragons, or what? heck, I spent six years in college as an english major and I had to look up the word Dragoons just to find out what you meant if that's indeed what you meant...... Still confused... :rolleyes:
What he means is a heavy infantry unit that ferry's into combat via horse, bike, chariot, etc.
In other words they can be used as fast attack or infantry as you see fit.

If i remember correctly Dragoons were 17th and 18th century european infantry who rode on horseback (as johiro said) so they could rapidly redeploy - in the french armies of Napoleon they were called Carabinieres (youll have to forgvie the spelling) and they served a function as fast moving light infantry, not heavy infantry

Regardless of light or heavy, what he seems to be trying to accomplish is making a unit that is interchangably fast attck and infantry. Taking wounds seperately and being able to engage in combat in each catagory rather than riding in a transport and dismounting. For example, a bike squad that can dismount and fight on foot. Not legal in 4th edition rules.
