The horsemen of Winterfell are well known for their expert riding skills. Though Stark Outriders eschew the heavier armor of many other mounted units, what they lose in durability they more than make up for in maneuverability and speed. Not ones to be bogged down by enemy forces, they can quickly distance themselves from their foes, ready to charge back in again on a flank.
The Stark Outriders unit box gives Stark Commanders a unit of cavalry for their forces. These swift steeds can easily make their way around the battlefield. When engaged in combat, after they perform a melee attack, they can make a free Retreat action, making sure their opponents are left without the chance to counter-attack.
