View Full Version : Heroes joining fast cavalry (VC)

Many peopel is talking about giving an undead hero "talisman of lycani" and then move him in a dire wolf unit... Is this really legal? Does he move like fast cavalry then? Read the page about fast cav!

And what happends if you give him both a nightmare and the talisman? Can a mounted model ever use the raiders movment value? (If not flying)

Characters can join fast cav and move in the same manner as the unit. The book says mounted characters but this was altered in errata to just characters.

EDIT: the talisman can be given to models not on foot (unless this was FAQ'd) but if mounted characters always use mount's movement.

The new rulebook FAQ (part 2 on the GW site) eliminates the need for a model to be mounted whilst in a fast cav unit to gain the added movement benefits. Its the 3rd errata on the first page.

I don't have a vampire book so I can't answer your second question, sorry.

The talisman will only be of any benefit if the Vampire remains on foot.

I did this all the time with 6th ed VC (haven't had the chance yet in 7th).
