As the name suggests. I was hoping that the strategems from Vigilus would make it into our PA update but alas no.
"Signal the Attack" has been replaced somewhat with the strategem to allow us to re-roll hits against a target within 12" of a Speeder. Which is actualluy great as it is a bonus for your entire army. Though, if like me you dont have Speeders (i do have TM and Sableclaw), "Signal the Attack" is still a massive bonus and doesnt require positioning a Speeder in DELETE range.
"Swift Strike" However hasnt been replaced or included in PA and could be used extremely well in conjunction with the new Warlord Trait to allow WL and RW unit to move 12" before the first turn.
Similarly, if you use "Speed of the Raven" to allow Advance/Shoot/Charge, you get even more benefit over the new warlord traot as you can still charge! (Again, this is using on a bike blob not a Speeder or Flyer Squadron)
For exmaple, take a blob of Black Knights:
- Move 12" after deployment, Move/advance 20", Charge up to 12", Attack, Run away 14" / 20" !
- This is a possible 64" move!!!
- 66" if you take an Ancient and the new relic!!
Seeing as i use a supported blob of Black Knights alongside my greenwing, i feel i still should spend the CP for the Attack Squadron and use Speed of the Raven, Signal the Attack and Swift Strike over the new Strategems and Traits.
if ive missed something glaringly obvious that really mitigates the Attack Squadron then please let me know
