I posted this in the rules thread to make sure its 100% leagal and it is. Now what do you guys think of this in a 6k Game?

5xMasters on cold ones, heavy armour, sea dragon cloaks, shields, halberds a pair of hand bows.
A bsb on cold ones with same equipment and the always strike first banner.
Then put them in a unit of 6 dark riders with a musician.
Do my charicters get the fast cav rules?
I can also give one 3x talismans and 1 the guiding eye and one of them the potion of str, and one with the ring of hotek.Also give one the Ring of darkness.
And how sick is this?

Or the banner of murder for AP hand bows and AP attacks.

Fun, and to see the look on your opoents face when you run round with that unit as fast cave shooting your brace of hand bows and standing and shooting with them and striking first with 18S5 atacks and 6S4 :D. Maybe use a couldren to put killing blow on them.

That's a good question. It seems to me like they shouldn't count as fast cavalry, but I don't actually know for sure.

They get to move like fast cavalry, but they won't get to shoot like fast cavalry.

a unit that joins fast cav benefits from the fast cav rules it says it quite clearly on the page.

Well, it says (as Nurgling Chieftain noted above) characters can /move/ like fast cav, but not /shoot/ like them.

It will be more fun to watch the dark elf players face when 2 enfilading cannon shots wipe out the unit. Or a sinle cannon shot causes a panic check which fails on double 6.

That unit costs about 800pts? And is fragile. Its not a good idea.
