if a unit champ of thunderer unit has pistols which gives him always stand and shoot reaction, does that bonus applies to him alone or the whole unit gets to fire?

Thanks :)

Just the models with the pistols.

However, it does have a useful side effect in that when the entire unit can S&S, none of them suffer the penalty for long range :D

Also has the drawback that if you can connect with your charge before all the models are in range then the entire unit doesn't get to Stand and Shoot at all.

All models, or just the models that can't draw a bead on the charging unit?

A question on Pistoliers: If Pistoliers march and shoot, do they suffer -1 to hit for moving? I assume not, but want to be sure.

Page 57 under pistols.
Tells you what modifiers they ignore.

Fast Cav doesn't take a -1 penalty to hit for marching, they take a -1 penalty for moving.

The Pistoliers use pistols. When firing pistols you ignore the -1 penalty for moving.

The BRB says all models in the unit which would mean just that. Just remember the difference between "in range" and "in LoS" and you should be fine. It is mostly used against long skirmishing units with short range missle weapons (like skinks).
