    Default How to use Trappers?

    So I've been playing a bit, and the units that I've found the easiest to use have been Raiders, Followers/Champions of bone, and Giants. I want to branch out a little; how do people use Trappers? I've got two units of them from the 2 starters I bought. Shooting into melee seems aight with Mance in general, or with Giants or CDS with other commanders, and it looks like you kind of want them up there to make use of their order. Any thoughts?

    I've used them with the Lord of Bones to help thinning a rank on units before melee with their traps. They are quite fast, too. You can put the Weeper in there as well, his order has long range just like traps. His "at any cost" order also make them quite a bit more resilient to panic, while still being insignificant. 6pt ain't that cheap, course, but that's one way to use them

    Can also be used as a bunker for a Chosen of Styr, whose order has the same range as traps and contribute to lowering the enemy's effectiveness as they move in.

    They're not a bad place to put Harma either. They usually just want to be making Maneuvers and triggering their traps anyway, and this way you can use them to springboard other units, too.

    I have mainly used trappers with jarl and it was very succesful for a time until My friends learned to counter jarl.
    Jarls unit often gets detroyed fast because people dont want any unit to be in their backline but trappers Are insignificant so you Are not giving the opponent a free VP.
    Even tho the shooting isn't great its still leathel in the rear with the - 2 to panic and armour.
    This forces you opponent to deal with it or take the damage.
    Otherwise i agree with the others on how to use trapper.
