Strike down? Why Bother?

Post  Dat Guy da Knight'boss on Mon Apr 13, 2015 2:36 am

Greetings all.

Just got done watching an older "tactics" video on YouTube about Imperial Knights and one of the MANY incorrect things mentioned reminded me of an old question I had...

Imperial Knights have the Strikedown rule. Why? In the aforementioned video, they say it applies to the Knight's shooting attacks but I seriously doubt that (though that would be the most beneficial IMO). A secondary question would be what is the point of ANY model having Strikedown. It just doesn't seem all that useful.

I just don't understand the purpose of 'knocking a model down into difficult terrain while IN close combat. I don't believe they would suffer an Initiative penalty, as that is a result of charging through difficult terrain. (This again would be quite useful, but is clearly NOT how it works)

My only ideas are that it is for slowing units with Hit & Run or fleeing units down as they break away from the Knight.

Thoughts?
