NOT the Skirmish set :D I mean the CossackSkirmishers. Those 2 base mini-unit. Are they any good? Seems to be a fire and forget weapon with questionable effeckt.

In our club they call them the Kung Foo Cossacks!

Just look at the stats!

Armour 5 in Close Combat
Morale 7
Skill 5
Pistols +1 to skill in CC
Shooting while charging
Riffled Barrels - 50cm range
Independent - Do not need to be given an order to change their order
Can always Force March

Only downside is they only have two strength points

What is not to like about them!

If you Force March into a village or wood they are a devil to shift!

Well they seem to be just speed bumbs? Kind of Cossack Rabble but without the numbers and endurance in exchange for awesome close combat skills.

Reaching out to 50cm @ skill 5 and 4 dice is not just close combat. Love me my skirmishers.

If they use Rifled Barrels they only get one dice per base.

Page 105 under Rifled Barrels it says range 50cm, effectiveness 0 with 1 dice per base but not if they are disorganised.
