Can someone give me with some ideas how I can buy time for my elite units to get in H2H combat without being shot in the early game. I wanted to use eagles and/or skirmishers to distract his handgunners.
I was thinking either use 5 shadow warriors as a screen for my elite unit. But 12 handguns would kill them in one turn, bit of a shame for 95 pts.
Or I could smartly deploy the scouts in their flank (if possible) and charge them in the flank without getting shot at. buying time for my white lions or swordmasters to march on.
Any other ideas?
