    Skirmishers

    skirmishers are so great. they get 360 vision, can change and shoot in any direction, and get no penalty for turning. i dont get it. why doesnt everybody make all their units skirmishers?

    Well, skirmishers don't negate ranks and they don't have ranks. And they almost always come in small numbers.

    I may be reading you wrong (apologies if i am), but you can't arrange any unit in skirmish formation, only ones with the skirmish rule. But then this isn't really much of an issue with the woodies

    Just remember that if you are playing BoC that if the unit has the raider rule then they get 2 ranks with that unit even though it is a skirmisher.

    Geronimo, look out below. Here comes the brother with the offbeat flow. I just fell from the mother ship.

    i cant really learn the rules for myself because i dont have the rulebook. im waiting until the new one comes out in september, then ill buy the new one.

    but i still know the basics because ive read a lot of the rulebook over my friends house.

    As you are new to WHFB and not a BoC player i wouldn't worry too much about this

    If you play against a BoC player than i'm sure he will tell you about this rule anyway
