Model Tactics
Chainmail Set 3: Drow Archer
By Bruce R. Cordell and Rob Heinsoo

Model: Drow Archer

Faction: Kilsek

Why It Rocks: The Drow Archer can see 2 feet in gloom conditions and shoot enemy models when they can’t even see the Archer to shoot back.

Tricks and Tactics: In gloom, the Drow Archer is the only archer that matters. Where other models are either moving toward the center or maneuvering under command, it fires at 24".

In any lighting conditions, the Drow Archer’s ability to fire into melee makes it a model to team up with melee fighters. With 3 health, the Drow Archer is somewhat more durable than other low-cost archers, meaning that it can take one enemy missile hit without even needing a morale save.

Enemies Who Hate to See It: Underground, everyone hates fighting the Drow Archer. Aboveground, melee armies with no ranged attacks of their own are none too happy about it, either.
