    light armour on marauder horseman

    plz help with subj. I use 2 units of 5 horseman with light armour, flails and mark of Slaanesh.
    But after some games I'm thinking about removing armour.
    So the question: do they need light armour or not?

    If you have some free points use armour for horseman. Sometimes it can save one rider here and there. But armour isn't necessary for them.

    Personally I'd say its a waste of points.

    horsemen are expected to die, so why bother protecting them?

    Yes they benefit from it. Very often my horsemen are targeted by S3/S4 hits. Having LA makes a difference.
    Is it an essential upgrade? NO If you need the point drop the LA but if you have extra points, this should be one of the upgrades to consider.

    I only ever give Marauder Horsemen : flails and MoS or MoK.

    Light Armour is pointless because a 5+ AS won't do much anyway, besides they are Fast Cav so if you manouver them well they won't be shot at.

    Spend the extra points elsewhere.
