Unit Description

Fast and dependable, an Outrider can be in one place to fire, then be in another to fire again moments later.

Historical Description

Outriders are both the commanders and drill instructors of the Pistolkorps. They are rarely noblemen, but usually veterans elevated from the ranks of state regiments who have shown an affinity for horsemanship and a talent for training new recruits. Outriders typically wear ornate armour, for nobles pay well for their sons to learn the art of war. They tend to form separate regiments to show their charges exactly how it's done, but also to display their martial skills to any noble looking for an experienced instructor to tutor their sons. As the Pistolkorps is funded in part by the Imperial Engineers School, Outriders are equipped with deadly repeater handguns, capable of unleashing devastating storms of lead at range. The Outriders' leader, inevitably the keenest among them, will often be armed with an even more outlandish weapon befitting his status.


Guerilla Deployment

Hide (forest)

This unit can hide in forests until enemy units get too close.

Fire Whilst Moving

This unit can fire while on the move.

Strengths & Weaknesses


Anti-infantry units have an advantage against targets that are smaller than a horse. This advantage can be a damage bonus against small targets, superior weight used to smash through lighter enemies, or an explosive attack from range that affects a large area.

Can't Attack Air

Some ranged weapons, like grenade launchers, bombs or blasting charges, can't target airborne units.

Vanguard Deployment

This unit can deploy in an expanded deployment area, allowing it to start the battle within striking distance of the enemy - or somewhere unexpected.
