Two-Handed Weapons w/Cavalry

Wed Jun 08, 2011 7:05 pm

Similar to my question about the Uruk-hai Berserkers, do cavalry suffer the -1 penalty for 2Handed weapons?
Thanks again!

Are there cavalry formations that use 2-handed weapons? Don't have my book handy to look for any but I thought cavalry only used lances, which have similar rules.

Anyway, yes. If cavalry are armed with 2-handed weapons they get the penalty to fight as well.

Well, I was just looking at the Special rules for 2Handed weapons on pg. 57. Infantry and Monsters have the +1 To Hit and -1 to Fight value, where as the Cavalry only receive the +1 to dice role To Hit. Khandish Charioteer, maybe? But it says it's Type is Monster so I don't know which model would use them. :?

OK, can actually reference my book now and you're right. 2H weapons function differently for Cavalry than for Infantry and Monsters and they do not suffer the -1 to Fight. This makes them identical to Lances, as far as I can tell.

edit: OK, just went through all the army lists and it is a moot point. I was right, no Cavalry formation (that I can find) has 2H weapons, just Lances.
