SIF: Night's Watch Ranger Hunters
Speed is often the deciding factor in combat. The one that can get in a good, strong strike against their opponent will be at an advantage for the rest of the battle. The swift Ranger Hunters excel at lightning-fast strikes. Using either their short bow or their trusty daggers, they conduct rapid raids against enemies. However, that speed comes at a price in terms of armor. If caught in a protracted engagement, the favor quickly tips against them.
The Ranger Hunters Unit Box for the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game gives Night’s Watch Commanders a fast and agile unit on the battlefield. Their short bows can reach out and attack enemies before they can fight back. In melee, their Swift Strike attack allows them a free Retreat maneuver afterward. They also gain a bonus when attacking enemies that have yet to activate, allowing them to reroll misses once.
• Hunters have the tools to handle any foe: Utilize range against melee-focused enemies and charge into weaker foes!
• Avoid prolonged engagements. Hunters do not have much staying power- don’t get stuck in combats!
• Use Swift Strike to retreat into an enemy’s flanks: They will either have to turn to face you, potentially dis-positioning themselves, or open themselves up to a flank attack.
• Utilize terrain and your speed to your advantage! Retreat into Hindering or Rough terrain, making the chances of getting counterattacked slim!
