View Full Version : Stupid Noob Question

What exactly are the musicians for? I see that the Standard Bearers get you a +1 for close combat results, but the rule book doesn't say what musicians are for. What do they do besides cost more?

If combat is drawn and one side has a musician and the other does not the side with the musician wins by 1.
If both sides have one it is a draw.

If a fleeing unit attempts to rally and has a musician it recieves +1 to its leadership to see if it rallys.

Rulebook page 81 top right.

It does say. Can't give you a page reference right now, but if you tie combat and you have a musician, you win instead. If they have one too, you still tie. It also gives you +1 to Leadership when taking checks to rally.

~EDIT~ Arrrgh, ninja'd.

There is also rumors for the 8ed giving musician another capacity like a free reform.
