Centaurs Sun, 04 May 2008 10:23
Found miniatures for them in the UK and US so thought lets do some homebrew rules...

Centaurs

All units are basically cavalry and behave like all normal cavalry units unless specified otherwise, they have no infantry but have access to all other weapons


Combat modifiers:
Centaur charge
If they go from disengaged to engaged they gain a bonus dice for the first round of combat (if they have to disengage from combat and then re engage the same target or a different on then no bonus dice)
Centaur 'poor turning circle'
They battleback with one less dice if doing so against 2 or more units (Battleback normally against first unit it engages)
Centaurs can not dismount
They receive an additional dice penalty when battling into terrain e.g. limited to 1 dice when battling into a forest and no penalties for battling out (if battling from elevated terrain to elevated terrain the additional penalty doesn’t apply).

Centaurs fully intergrated arms
Any Lore card (and Foot Onslaught) that refers to ordering / affecting Infantry can be used with Centaurs as well

Movement Modifiers
Centaurs can always cross rivers even if scenario says rivers can no tbe crossed. They must have enough movement to get to the other side and end their turn when they get across (they may not battle the same turn as crossing)

Deployment, use same rules as deplying Dwarves.


Any thoughts?
Chris
