The next unit the Targaryens get is a unit ofDothraki Outriders. While the Screamers were the melee-centric unit for the starter set, the Outriders are its ranged troops. They have taken the art of horsemanship to an entirely new level. Like all cavalry, they get a free Maneuver action when they activate.
However, their Nimble rule makes them even quicker. It allows the Outriders to Shift 3” before making a Ranged Attack (as opposed to the usual 2”), and they can also make another 3” Shift after they attack. So, even though their Shortbows only have Short Range, they can still attack an enemy up to 15” away from where they started their turn, then move hopefully back out of retaliation range afterward.
An interesting thing about this unit is that they have absolutely no Melee attack at all. So, having that ability to shift away is certainly going to come in handy, as Targaryen commanders will need to make sure to not get this unit stuck in Melee.
Lightly armored, very maneuverable and with a solid attack value, the Dothraki Screamers are a great choice to bolster your ranks with versatile and relatively inexpensive cavalry. Outmaneuver and surprise you opponents with your Dothraki hoard!
With a 6” movement speed and the Cavalry special rule, Dothraki Screamers are great for Charging enemies in the Flank or Rear.
Their relatively low cost (6 points) for cavalry means that you can field many of them providing your opponent with hard decisions.
Be careful! For what these irate horsemen have in teeth, they lack in hide. If they get stuck in battle for long, they will make for easy targets.
Targaryen Deluxe Activation Banners: A Song Of Ice and Fire Exp.
During battle, communication between a commander and their troops is extremely important. Many great battles have been won and lost because one side was able to more-effectively utilize its resources because of superior communication. Banners have been used for centuries as a communication technique. When the Iron Throne is on the line, every detail matters.
Th Deluxe Activation Banner set gives commanders an easy way to keep track of which of their units have activated and which are left to go. The set contains 10 premium plastic banners, each attached to a 30mm base. The banners can be placed next to a unit to show that it has activated, or on its unit Stat Card. When the unit starts taking casualties, the banner easily fits into a space on the units movement tray.
