Archers, just a chance of getting disordered opponents?

Post by Tankred on Wed Jul 26, 2017 12:34 pm

After my first game of BI I wondered if I have a better idea of how to use T Archers. So far I am screening infantry with them and try to get a lucky shot with them on a nearby opponent. In General, there is usually only one round when the opponent is within range. After that, a charge is usually made by one of the sides.

So I get the point, that Archers can try to make a defence fire when they are charged. Shooting on fresh opponents with 2-3 dice rarely results in more than a disorder, especially if you have the chance only once. There is no indirect fire besides from large units with FP and T only allowed in some lists.

Placing T in e.g. broken terrain is for sure an interesting option, too - if availabe.

So do you guys have any other idea to use T efficiently?

In Basic Impetus S seems far more valuable since they can move very quick, get a -2 if shot at etc. In our game feudal french vs. feudal imperial one of the S units had VBU 3. The S units were more efficient since they could more easily create opportunities through movement. Did I just not get the point how to use T or are T and S of a very similar Battle value in BI?
