Questions about Trotters-charging/shooting

Post by neila » Sat Mar 08, 2014 6:16 pm

As troops designated as Trotters have the ability to shoot, when does this occur ? Is the shooting the same as foot troops or is it part if a Trotters charge move ? Trotters usually fired before pressing home a charge, so is the shooting ability used only in a charge move ?

Trotters can shoot their pistols whenever their card comes up, out to 8" inches. They get no reload marker. They are weaker in melee because they trot in vs the gallop, the reduced die is because of a lack of shock on impact.
