  • Many Characters have the option of selecting mounts from the mount section of the Armybooks. When a model rides a mount, its Troop Type changes:
    - A model mounted on a War Beast​ becomes Cavalry​.
    - A model mounted on a Monstrous Beast​ becomes Monstrous Cavalry​.
    - A model mounted on a Monster​ becomes Ridden Monster​.
    - A model mounted on any other Troop Type becomes whatever Troop Type its mount is (but counts as a mounted model instead of a model on foot). In this case, the model gains Combined Profile and Cavalry Support.

    The entire combined model (Character, mount and possibly additional riders/crew members that are part of the mount) follow the rules for Characters. Riders/crew member that are part of the selected mount do not count as “mounts” (meaning they can for example use weapons or armour). These rider/crew members have their own equipment which only they can use. However, the combined model has a single Armour Save, it must choose to either use the Armour of the a rider/crew member (including Mount’s Protection and Barding) or the Armour of the Character (including Mount’s Protection and Barding). Remember that for Ridden Monsters you can only use the Armour Save of the Mount.

    Mount's Protection:
    Mounts can provide special bonus to Armour Save to a mounted model, if noted under the model's rules.
    • Mount’s Protection (6+): +1
    • Mount’s Protection (5+): +2
    No matter how many mounts a model has, it still onlygains the largest bonus once.
    • Barding: +1.
    A mount equipped with Barding suffers-1 Movement.
