PostSubject: Bows and Close Combat   Thu 24 Apr 2014 - 4:49

Hi guys,

So if in my first turn I choose to shoot at an enemy model and then in my opponents turn he successfully charges that model how is my model equipped for close combat? Does my model fight hand to hand? Does he automatically put away his bow and fight with his sword and shield?

Thanks

pei

Hey pei,
Welcome to the forum!

To answer your questions, your model automatically puts away his bow and fights with his sword and shield.

See the Close Combat sections who can fight and who strikes first.

It makes sense too, since they are train fighters. One hand drops the bow while the other hand draws the sword at the same time. And then draws his shield. In the middle ages, archers had their bows plus a buckler shield and a sword just in case they get charged. The size of the buckler made it easier to draw it out with the sword.

Of topic. Interesting thing is that by Mordheim rules Marksmen cannot use bucklers, even tough it is more suitable piece of armor for them... Smile

I was thinking that myself. But I guess a hero could have a buckler, sword and a bow
