Thoughts on the Dawnguard Invictor Officer & Standard Bearer

There's really no reason why you shouldn't take this UA if you decide to take Invictors. For
two points, it turns an already decent combined arms unit with decent shooting and melee
skills into a fantastic shooting force with a strong melee presence.

The Officer has two main benefits for a squad of Invictors:

His mini-feat, which allows them to get their shots from the deadly 14" so feared by
people who have faced Long Gunners. Trip this off early (around the second turn if
possible) to take out key solos and soften up enemy units.
If you're playing with Ravyn, cast Snipe on them early and then use the feat for a
ridiculous range of 18". Great if you're going second and your enemy ran most of
their force forward on their turn.

Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, is the Combined Arms ability. A two-model CRA
already gives Invictors higher effective RAT than even a Ghost Sniper; combine this with
the ability to reroll misses and the Invictors can consistently hit high DEF units. More
importantly, Combined Arms allows the Invictors to forgo the aiming bonus and maintain a
high level of accuracy while on the move, either increasing their threat range or falling back
in the face of an oncoming force. Keep in mind that Combined Arms is a Granted ability, so
if the Officer dies, the unit loses the ability; keep him safe in the back row, preferably with a
couple of other Invictors in B2B for Defensive Line.

On the other hand, the Standard Bearer is pretty useless. Unless you're facing someone who
naturally lowers their CMD or has spells that force command checks, it's usually better to let
the banner go down than give up another gun. He does provide Defensive Line, so it might
not be a bad idea to keep him B2B with the Officer for the ARM boost.
