View Full Version : peasant bowmen skirmisher

hi, just wondering if the standard and musician will be useful for these lads in 8th edition. I've assembled them to get a full command, but thinking about changing the musician and banner back to regular bowman.

Don't think the huge units will be the most useful in 8th, but they'll certainly be a new unit being able to do everything fast cav currently can while shooting in two ranks. For how cheap they are, no reason not to take a unit.

Depends if you need a Banner to claim objectives and table quarters. If yes, having a skirmishing Bowmen unit in some difficult terrain claim your table edge sounds like an option.

Also, the banner doesn't give points and doesn't cost many points, so not much to loose as well.
